Nuvo Player Portfolio from Legrand
Legrand brought a wide array of new products for the residential custom install market to its three booths at CEDIA 2016.
Middle Atlantic (racks, equipment mounting and power solutions), Nuvo (whole home audio systems), On-Q (smart home solutions, infrastructure & AV connectivity), and Vantage (lighting and climate control) were featured in a combined booth, while Luxul (residential IP networking solutions) and QMotion (advanced shading solutions) exhibited at separate booths.
“Over the last year, Legrand has continued to evolve as an industry leader in power, light, data and digital building infrastructures through a series of acquisitions and expansion of key product lines in the residential custom install space,” said Brian DiBella, president, Electrical Wiring Systems at Legrand North America.
Luxul exhibited a new series of scalable routers that enable integrators to lay a foundation for virtually any size network. The company showed switches, which are available with a range of features and form factors—including the AV Series for clean integration with AV rack systems. The Luxul Wireless Controller and Access Points offer roaming, excellent coverage, and solid performance for an outstanding Wi-Fi experience.
Middle Atlantic’s Proximity in-wall box gives installers maximum mounting capacity behind displays. New Vision Display Mounts provide safe, reliable display mounting with professional features for efficient installation and storage of technology behind the display. RSH Custom Rackshelves are now available in a 1RU design—with patented UMS designs—for small device mounting and an easy, face-after design. Power Distribution with RackLink, now available in new budget-friendly form factors, lets installers remotely manage projects to save time while adding service value for the customer.
