AVT Question: Please share your company's philosophy, vision, and product roadmap heading into InfoComm 2022. [June 2022]
Renkus-Heinz was lucky enough to attend InfoComm 2021 in Orlando, and its energy was impressive after a pandemic hiatus! Being able to meet in person, create connections, discuss projects, and showcase technologies once again meant the world to the entire AV industry at last year’s show. Now in 2022, we have seen the resurgence of not only trade shows, but live events globally. Theater performances, sporting events, music festivals, and more are finally back on the calendar and we at Renkus-Heinz couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the excitement!
Delivering great sound to audiences is more important than ever, as many potential live event goers have created their ideal at-home setup while restrictions caused them to enjoy events from the living room. The acoustical sweet spot is pretty easy to achieve when there’s just a few audience members in a living room, but providing excellent sound quality and coverage for every seat in a live performance venue requires the best in flexible and intelligent technology.
At Renkus-Heinz, we aim to bring the Sound Solution to as many installations as possible. To fully support the needs of our customers, distributors, sales reps, and audio integrators, Renkus-Heinz recently launched the award-winning PCX Series with Passive UniBeam technology. The PCX Series exemplifies “solution,” as its sleek appearance and IP64 rating allows it to be installed nearly anywhere, indoors or out!
In addition to PCX, Renkus-Heinz will showcase many of its solutions from the past year that are enabling customers to bring great sound to any location. The Renkus-Heinz booth and demonstration room will also feature the SX/SA28 compact subwoofers, CX/CA121M two-way coaxial stage monitors, and the award-winning ICONYX Compact Series arrays in both standard (-RN) and Dante enabled (-RD1) versions.
