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 Jackie Haffey, senior channel marketing manager, residential, Legrand | AV.

Why exhibit at CEDIA Expo 2023?

CEDIA Expo is a can’t-miss event, and this year brings with it even more excitement with the combined Commercial Integrator Expo. For Legrand | AV, this is the perfect opportunity to show the full breadth of our latest solutions suited for resimercial applications. We are excited to see our dealers and show them how they can create amazing AV experiences across all applications.

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

Anything and everything resimercial. This application is here to stay and the products to support it deliver some of the most innovative features found in AV. I think we’ll see more and more solutions that help installers tackle any job — whether in the home or in a business — quickly, easily, and with incredible reliability.

 With the variety of solutions we’ll have on display, here are also the perspectives from our brand managers:

“Flexible display mounts that bridge the residential and commercial markets will be the trend to watch. For example, we’ll feature stylish, elegant home and hybrid office solutions such as our new Voyager Mobile Cart and Koncīs Monitor Arm Mount with integrated desktop power accessories for convenient device charging. Chief also offers digital signage products that cover a variety of applications, including hospitality, restaurants, and bars. The new Tempo Wall Mount System is generating a lot of excitement as an all-in-one solution with integrated storage space for small devices that support displays. Fusion Menu Boards offer perfect display positioning on uneven surfaces. Both mounts feature easy servicing access behind displays during and after installation.” —Ann Ewoldt, product marketing manager, Chief

 “Innovations around the hybrid meeting will be an especially exciting trend to watch with the new 21:9 format standard and Microsoft Front Row. Those looking to support this trend will find Da-Lite UTB Contour 21:9 Ultrawide Format fixed-frame screen perfect for creating a more immersive and equitable meeting experience for end users. It joins Da-Lite’s line of electric and fixed-frame screens available in the 21:9 Ultrawide Format.—Wendy Cox, director product management, Da-Lite

“AV over IP — it’s become a necessity to smart homes and to smart businesses. We’ll continue to see deeper inroads into WiFi 6 applications. Luxul has some exciting updates to our managed switch and wireless lines that provide integrators with an easy and reliable solution to AV over IP networks. We are continuing to develop solutions built for AV that offer ease of integration, monitoring, and management. —Myles Broadhead, product marketing manager, Luxul

“One exciting trend will be the continued strengthening in recurring revenue optimization. Solutions such as Middle Atlantic’s Premium+ PDU that feature remote monitoring and management capabilities that help integrators streamline this revenue opportunity will be key. Now with RackLink Cloud, integrators have more options.” —Patrick Kittredge, product marketing manager, Middle Atlantic Products

 “At CEDIA Expo 2023, I’m going to have my eye on the tools and features that really make the integrator’s job easier, like SANUS’ in-wall media boxes, which store streaming and networking devices like the Samsung One Connect behind the TV in the wall for a clean look. Also, On-Q mini pass-through grommets for quick and easy cable management. These solutions are the unsung hero of a clean and reliable install. I’m also looking forward to seeing solutions that cater to every space of the home — indoors and out. SANUS has recently made it easier to complete outdoor entertainment spaces with new Full-Motion and Tilting TV mounts made specifically for the great outdoors.” —Garrett Humphrey, product marketing manager, On-Q and SANUS

 “I’m looking forward to seeing new innovations that will continue to make the hybrid meeting more equitable. That’s going to look different for each person and organization, but with modular video conferencing solutions such as ConferenceSHOT AV and EasyIP available from Vaddio, integrators can tailor the experience. Our HDMI to USB streaming device, AV Bridge Nano, and our Vaddio Device Controller touch panel are easy to integrate and customize and are simple to use.” Connor Petit, product marketing manager, Vaddio

What will you focus on at the show?

Legrand | AV’s focus will be on the integrator and ensuring they have what they need to explore all the opportunities for successful resimercial applications. They’ll see complete solutions from all our brands — Chief, Da-Lite, Luxul, Middle Atlantic Products, On-Q, SANUS, and Vaddio — as well as lighting and shading solutions from Legrand Shading Systems and Vantage. Our brands come together to deliver amazing AV experiences and we can’t wait to empower dealers in every area where they can excel!
