Philadelphia, PA May 17, 2012


Tripp Lite, a world-leading provider of power protection and connectivity solutions, has teamed with Almo Professional A/V, the nation's fastest growing audio/visual distributor, by participating in the next E4 AV training and networking event in Washington, D.C. on May 18. Tripp Lite will showcase Fiber Solutions for Ultra-Long-Distance Digital Signage Applications during the event.

"We're excited to introduce our new fiber-optic solutions that allow installers to send video signals to media players and digital signage up to 1.2 miles away," said Dennis Mariasis, Tripp Lite A/V Brand Manager. "By shattering the 295-foot network cable limitation, these ultra-long-distance digital signage solutions open up an entire range of new applications for professional installers."

"Tripp Lite has been a big supporter of our E4 AV events and we consider the company to be an integral part of the tour," explained Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V. "E4 attendees will have the opportunity for in-depth discussions, application ideas and, of course, product demonstrations in the Tripp Lite booth. The company's new IP control power conditioners have been of particular interest to our visitors due to their efficiency, diagnostic feedback and sustainability. D.C. attendees can expect a great InfoComm product preview when visiting Tripp Lite during E4 this week."
