Best of InfoComm 2022 - A Recap of 5 Exciting AV Technologies Shown at InfoComm 2022

The future of communication was on full display in June at InfoComm 2022, held in Las Vegas June 3-10, and Yamaha Unified Communications was there to help lead the way.

InfoComm is the largest technology trade show in North America focused on the pro AV industry. It is produced by the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association (AVIXA).

This year marked the first time InfoComm was held in Las Vegas since 2018. The show welcomed 19,681 attendees from more than 110 countries and all 50 U.S. states, according to a post-show recap, with 522 exhibitors showcasing pro AV products and solutions across 294,500 square feet of the trade show floor in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The show featured individual pavilions dedicated to audio, digital signage, events and entertainment and conferencing and collaboration. Also included were more than 100 hours of workshops, seminars, manufacturers’ training and other educational offerings.

This year’s InfoComm included a spotlight on new methods of using technology for collaboration. The COVID-19 pandemic is prompting many companies to move to a hybrid workforce, and tech providers have been developing new solutions to facilitate communication between staffers no matter where they may be located. More than 25 sessions and nearly 200 exhibitors at the show were focused on products and solutions needed for seamless conferencing and collaboration experiences. 

“The future of the corporate workplace is top of mind this year as companies experience the impacts of returning to the office after two years with a remote workforce,” said Annette Sandler, Director of Live Content U.S./Canada, AVIXA.

The show also featured 10 audio demo rooms where attendees could experience different audio products away from the ambient noise of the trade show floor. Visitors to the demo rooms were able to immerse themselves in the audio experience with product demonstrations, enjoy live performances from special guests, learn from experts at top audio manufacturers and get a glimpse of what's next on the audio product horizon.

Here were a few highlights of InfoComm 2022 from the Yamaha UC team

1. Yamaha UC Team Sessions:Yamaha-UC-Meghan-Kennelly-Interview.jpg

First and foremost, we would be remiss if we did not mention the sessions and interviews done by our very own Yamaha UC teammates: Dr. Holger Stolze, PhD, Sr. Director of Technical Sales & Marketing, and Meghan Kennelly, Director of Global Marketing & Communications.

Dr. Holger Stolze led two sessions: Room Impact on Selecting the Right Microphone Technology and The New Demands of Hybrid Education on Class Room Audio, while Meghan Kennelly spoke with AVNation’s Bradford Benn in the InfoComm studio about the ADECIA family of products

All talks were educational, insightful, and useful for gaining a fuller understanding of how to achieve high-quality audio in hybrid education and office spaces. 


 

2. Digital Signage:

Ask anyone at InfoComm: Digital Signage was a massive highlight of the North Hall. From restaurants to retail, it’s clear that Digital Signage has made a huge presence in the world of AV. 

Here’s one story we loved from Instronic about how the unique aspects of advanced Digital Signage can create a user experience like no other.

3. Aveo Systems:mira_connect_yamaha.png

One of our favorite booths belonged to Yamaha UC’s newest partner, Aveo Systems. Aveo Systems produces award-winning, smart touchscreen control systems for AV, including Mira Connect, which seamlessly provides an intuitive user interface for ADECIA.

Another entertaining and eye-catching booth in the West Hall belonged to Wachter. The folks at Wachter had an impressive green screen booth set up, where any courageous passerby could step up and get filmed and presented in a variety of scenarios.  
 

Our very own Gina Cunsolo, copywriter and content marketing specialist at Yamaha UC, took the chance and showed up on the digital signage screen as a child, an animated character…even as herself with a cat on her head! The digital screen then played the recording of Gina on a loop for others to view and laugh as they walked by.




 

5. VOD. Visual LED Art Walls:VOD-Visual-Display.jpg 

Last but not least, we were all incredibly impressed with the intensely real LED Art Walls strewn across the North Hall, particularly VOD Visual. 

VOD Visual unveiled its first 0.7mm pixel pitch dvLED display at InfoComm. This state-of-the art display is specifically designed to produce the highest-quality close proximity viewing. Some use cases for this particular display include retail applications, home cinemas, corporate presentations, and NFT art displays.  
 

InfoComm 2023 will take place in Orlando, Fla., on June 10-16 at the Orange County Convention Center.
