As the doors to CEDIA 2018 open, anticipation fills the air. With attendees anxious to discover the latest residential innovations, we asked a few about the trends they’re excited to see at this year’s Expo.
I’m looking forward to seeing the new HDMI 2.2 specifications and how they affect custom installation products. We did our homework on the new HDMI bandwidth and our cables are future-proof, which allows us to provide a better picture for our customers at CEDIA 2018 and beyond.

I’m excited to see advancements in control solutions, the potential of truly cost-effective 4K and the introduction of 8K. I’m also looking forward to see what Emerald brings to the show, and seeing all of our friends from the community.

I’ll be looking around the show floor at outdoor audio, video and control. I’m curious to see what installers and consumers are looking to bring to an outdoor living space that was traditionally inside the home.

It’s interesting to see the design advancements in luxury audio. More and more, we’re seeing an increased demand for beautifully designed audio products. Consumers are no longer stuck with an ugly box—you can get an attractive product with remarkable sound.
