In our series of #CEDIAShares blogs, we’re talking with exhibitors about the hottest technologies and trends they’re looking to see at CEDIA Expo 2023.

Q&A with James Chen, managing director, Kordz International.

Why exhibit at CEDIA Expo 2023?

At Kordz, we focus on cabling solutions that help systems integrators tackle even the most complex networking projects with ease and confidence. The opportunity to hear first-hand from our customers their success stories, as well as their challenges, only makes us better at what we do, driving innovation and our industry forward. Many members of the Kordz team were systems integrators earlier in their careers, so we know how important it is for a manufacturer to proactively collaborate with their customers; CEDIA Expo is the perfect place to do it. With the connections we make and the feedback we receive from fellow integrators and customers, we can continue to adapt, improve, and innovate our cabling solutions in ways that makes a real difference to dealers’ businesses and day-to-day lives. CEDIA Expo also gives us an opportunity to put our products in our customers’ hands. They can feel and see the difference in our cabling — and experiencing really is believing with Kordz. That’s why we love giving integrators the chance to put our cabling and their skills to the test by competing in the termination challenge held at our booth throughout the show.

What is the most exciting trend you expect to see at the show?

The demand for easier installation is driving innovation in the systems integration industry. Manufacturers across all smart home categories are improving their products for faster, simpler design, configuration, installation, and service. At the same time, technological advancements and the adoption of bandwidth-hungry applications are driving the need for increasingly fast, reliable, consistent, and seamless connectivity. Our networking and HDMI solutions always aim to be one step ahead and ready to support the transmission speed and seamless interoperability required of today’s sophisticated AV systems — many of which will be showcased at CEDIA Expo. In fact, numerous CEDIA Expo exhibitors, such as Trinnov Audio, employ our cabling to ensure optimal performance of their product demonstrations.

What will your company focus on at the show?

In addition to celebrating our 20th birthday, we are excited to show our customers Kordz’ game-changing new SlimCat Network Cabling Systems that offer all the power of standard Cat6 and Cat6A in half the size. These new solutions took two years of meticulous R&D to create and are already multi-award-winners. Their flexibility and performance allow integrators to easily deliver a new standard of networking to previously unimaginable places. To check them out for yourself, please come visit us at booth #2109 with our U.S. distribution partner, Future Ready Solutions.
