The Countdown to CEDIA 2017
Summer is wrapping up and another CEDIA is upon us – only days away! The Caster team is busy as ever prepping seven of our clients for this year’s show. Though the days are long and there are hundreds of details left to iron out, our clients are really bringing it this year and we cannot wait to share (and show off) all of their exciting news! Below is a quick rundown of what you can expect to see from each of our custom electronics clients in San Diego this year.
Control4, along with brands Triad Speakers and Pakedge intend to wow the crowds with numerous product announcements at CEDIA. There is no doubt the Control4 booth will be buzzing with excitement and will be a mandatory stop for integrators looking for the latest innovations in AV and home automation.
Z-Wave Alliance – Booth #2620
The Z-Wave Alliance will be showing off the Z-Wave Certified Installer Toolkit, which is now shipping for installers and available at a discount to any integrator who attends the three training classes at CEDIA. The Z-Wave Pavilion will include the latest products from the Z-Wave ecosystem from members such as Leedarson, Fibaro, DOME, Qubino, Aeon Labs, Nexia, SecureNet, Eaton and CTS.
Fibaro – Booth #2620
As mentioned, Fibaro is one of the many manufacturers in the Z-Wave Pavilion that will be showing off their suite of home automation devices, with new products for 2017 such as the new Door / Window Sensor 2 and a new product that will be debuted at the show. Fibaro’s newest partner, URC, will also showcase many of Fibaro’s products at CEDIA in Booth #5529.
Pro Audio Technology – Sound Room #14
As can be expected, Pro Audio Technology will put on one of the best audio demonstrations at the show. The demo will include its new SCRS-25im in-wall speakers that offers a lower cost of entry than any other PRO system currently available, powered by its new 8-channel amplifier DMA-1508B. The new models are the perfect solution for media or multi-purpose rooms beyond the dedicated home theater.
Vanco International – Booth #3645
Vanco is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a new booth featuring its four brands – Vanco, Evolution, PulseAudio and a full display of products from the recently acquired Beale Street Audio. At the show, they will introduce new products under the popular Vanco line of AV accessories.
SurgeX – Booth #6029
SurgeX is bringing a powerful new demo to CEDIA this year. A new line of SurgeX large-format UPS solutions will be on display and demoed. Available in three new sizes (10,000 volt-amps – 10kVA, 15kVA, and 20kVA) the new UPSs provide carry over power to critical systems at the moment of an outage and feature an integrated isolation transformer to prevent downtime and device damage.
PowerHouse Alliance – Booth #5729
At CEDIA, PowerHouse Alliance is debuting its first ever house brand of AV products called A2V. Stop by to check out the first two categories in the new line, along with a long list of vendors in the AV, smart home, networking and security space. Dealers can also meet with any of PowerHouse Alliance 12 distributor members, who for the first time, will all have their own individual pods in the PowerHouse Alliance booth.
