Two companies I spent time with at CEDIA EXPO showed products to make bidding on custom installation jobs easier and faster via cloud- and mobile-based solutions.

Mounts aren't usually all that sexy. They're the big chucks of metal that allow us to install our displays and projectors exactly where we want. But let's face it, usually they show up in our warehouses as plain brown boxes, one no different from the next, and that's that. Well, OmniMount is on a mission to change that.

While a basic demo room may work for some companies, it doesn't do it for the Harman and it's JBL Synthesis line.

In the commercial and pro AV markets, more so then the residential markets, AMX is a very well known and respected manufacturer of automation products. Yet in residential, although the AMX name is known, it doesn't seem to have the same notoriety as some of the other automation companies, especially if you speak to residential integrators that have no experience in the commercial markets. So I wanted to ask AMX why residential integrators should get to know them better.

As we continue to see more and more network connectivity in our products and our system, the network they reside on has become incredibly important. Because most integrators are more audio/video experts than networking guru's, what network you deploy is very important especially when you look at they service your network supplier supplies.

HDMI matrix switchers are not one size fits all. For this reason Atlona will be releasing their modular switchers, due out in the spring of 2014. They've proven themselves as a strong player in the "magic black-box" field and now they're expanding their line.

A product that Mark from Home Theater Advisors introduced me to a few months ago is Plant Waves banana plugs. These things are great — just strip off a small bit of the wire, insert into the plug, and tighten the set screw (the product says you don't need to strip any wire, that the set screw will penetrate the insulation and make the connection, but I've had a few instances where that didn't happen and spent forever troubleshooting only to find it was a bad connection). It makes the wiring job so much faster and the plugs themselves are very high quality.
