Torus Power TOT Series
“Though commonly misunderstood, proper power management ensures both the integrity and performance of connected Audio/Video equipment is preserved,” said Kevin Main, VP of sales and marketing for Torus Power. “The Torus Power Hour + aims to demystify and educate the audience on proper power and grounding while providing some strong opinions and invaluable application insight from some of the best minds in the industry. This will be a discussion worth making time for!”
Main will introduce Torus Power and the esteemed panel, including host David Rodarte, global strategist and champion of the CE industry and recipient of Consumer Electronics Association’s TechHome Leadership Award. Rodarte, also past CEO of NuVo Technologies and now CEO of ChangingVelocity, will lead a panel of luminaries from all corners of the industry. Panelists include Anthony Grimani, world-famous audio expert and acoustician and President of Media Specialty Resources and Dennis Erskine, award-winning THX-certified professional theater designer, acoustical engineer, CEO of the Erskine Group, and CEDIA vice chairman. Joining them will be power and grounding expert Arthur Kelm, CEO of Ground One, and Dr. Henry Pajooman, Ph.D., specialist in motors and magnetics and VP of engineering for Plitron Manufacturing.
The CEDIA course is worth 0.75 Continuing Education (CEU) credits, but Torus Power Hour’s real draw is the promise of an electrifying discussion on power and grounding for high-end, high-performance installations. The panelists will also cover everything integrators need to know to properly power, protect, and preserve electronics, followed by a deep dive into related technologies and key success factors. Some questions that will be put to the experts are: What are some of the high-level considerations that you think about when working on a power-hungry project? What are the symptoms you've experienced in a system that only an isolation transformer could have resolved? How do integrators justify the investment in toroidal isolation products with customers? And more.
As a thank you for the time taken away from the busy trade show floor, Torus will award one pre-registered course attendee the prize of the Torus Power AVR 20 Toroidal Isolation Power Transformer with Automatic Voltage Regulation. Enrollment for the course is limited to 90 students and early registration is encouraged.
