Showcase of AV technology applications for the Corporate sector

AV industry leaders at InfoComm Asia 2008, largest dedicated trade show in Asia for pro AV and systems integration

(Hong Kong, 6 August 2008) - Decision makers, specifiers and CIOs/IT managers in small, medium and large enterprises who are keen to adopt audiovisual technology at their workplace will be treated to a broad spectrum of audiovisual solutions this November 19 -21 in Hong Kong. InfoComm Asia 2008, the pan Asian trade show for pro AV technology and systems integration will debut with more than 250 exhibiting companies from 21 countries. This includes companies exhibiting under three national groups - Singapore, Taiwan and the USA.

Audiovisual systems are used widely in the corporate sector, most notably for business presentations but increasingly for multi -site collaborative meetings. As technology advances to offer 'true -to -life' telepresence systems, and with escalating travel costs, videoconferencing facilities have become a necessary office 'infrastructure', and a tool for employee productivity. Besides eliminating travel costs, information can be disseminated more quickly and effectively, and decision making can be accelerated. A wide range of solutions are available - from simple desk -top models to high -end room -based systems.

The InfoComm Asia 2008 exhibition will showcase these solutions at a dedicated pavilion for HD Conferencing & Telepresence. The pavilion will highlight applications of high definition conferencing and telepresence technologies not only for the corporate sector but also in education and training, healthcare and government.

Ultra Active Technology, a master distributor of Polycom and working with worldwide AV vendors, can offer complete collaborative conferencing solutions, integrating AV equipment with boardroom interior design to create the right environment for power meetings. Vega Technologies, representing industry leaders Tandberg and ClearOne as well as a host of technology icons, will offer a one stop solution for corporate users. Other international brands represented at this pavilion include Vega, Keda, Yamaha, Beyerdynamic, DIS, Sennheisser, Shure, Revolab and ICS.

A basic requirement of a boardroom set -up are user -friendly projection systems and screens, such as those offered by Christie and Da -Lite, to deliver high resolution and high impact presentations. Interactive digital boards and whiteboards e.g. from VTRON and SMART Technology provide instantaneous access to local or networked sources for quick real -time update. Behind -the -scenes automation and control systems for sound, lighting, and AV equipment allow the presentations or meetings to run seamlessly. Companies such as AMX and Crestron can lend their expertise here. Outside the boardroom, and around the office, digital signage systems e.g. from C -Nario, announce or inform about meetings and events or other happenings in the corporation.

These are just some of the AV vendors gathered at InfoComm Asia 2008 which cater to the Corporate/IT market sector. Other AV systems suppliers at InfoComm Asia 2008 with corporate applications include Ammamsic, Creator, Dehao Electroncs, Draper, Gefen, IEI Technology, LG Electronics, Oripix, Projectiondesign, Sanyo, Sharp -Roxy, Sinew Technology, Televic, Vity, and Vivitek. Together with some 250 systems manufacturers and suppliers, they will collectively put up a comprehensive display of the AV technologies tailored for the diverse Asian markets.

Running concurrently with the trade exhibition is the InfoComm Asia 2008 Summit Program, comprising educational seminars, manufacturers' presentations and industry -focused conferences. Corporate sector attendees may be interested in a number of topics covered in the Summit Conference and Seminar programs. There will be a case study on Office AV Systems, a paper on Using AV for Making Effective Presentations, and technical sessions on Designing Distributed Sound Systems, and Fiber Optic Distribution of AV in an IT Environment.

Attendance in the Trade Exhibition and Summit is free, for trade representatives and professional end users only. Registration is required. Summit attendance is subject to seat availability and confirmation by the organizers. For full information and registration, please visit www.infocomm -asia.com.
