Thousand Oaks, CA - June 11, 2015 - Wilshire Media Systems,

Southern California's leading resource for residential and commercial technology solutions, welcomed the area's best architects, builders, designers and realtors, at their annual Spring Expo held at the company's Thousand Oaks showroom on May 28th. Boasting more than a dozen of the industry's premier consumer electronics brands, attendees were treated to a series of seminars and product demos, which showcased ease of use and installation as well as integration techniques promoting the collaboration of technology and aesthetic design.

"Homeowner specifications have played a huge role in the increase of installed technologies in both new builds and remodels. Home automation and lighting control, for example, strikes a chord with rising consumer concerns regarding energy management, while whole-home streaming audio and touch-of a button scene activation fulfills the demand for convenient, anytime access to entertainment," said Mike McMaster, President of Wilshire Media Systems. "We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to educate our trade professionals on the benefits of smart home technology, while helping bring a true understanding of the design-level possibilities for their clients and projects."

Attendees from organizations such as the Conejo Association of Professional Interior Designers (CAPID), the Los Angeles chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), the Ventura County chapter of The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) received valuable face-time with a variety of industry leaders alongside the chance to touch and play with some of the hottest smart home solutions on the market, including:

* Robust Wi-Fi network solutions by Access Networks
* Best-in-class cables, connectors and A/V accessories from Audioquest
* Premium theater seating by Fortress
* Advanced visual surveillance systems from IC Realtime
* Power management solutions from Panamax/Furman
* Stunning home theater projectors from Runco
* Custom whole-home automation solutions from Savant
* Specialty mirror and outdoor televisions by Seura
* Innovative architectural speakers from Sonance
* Wireless speakers and streaming music from Sonos
* Stunning 4K projectors and televisions from Sony
* The World's best projection screens from Stewart

"As an industry partner, my interest in attending the Wilshire Spring Expo was to update my knowledge in the current systems available to consumers for premier home theater applications," said Julie Gerns, owner and designer at Power Interior Services. "The Expo provided impressive and professional representation of every aspect in this area of expertise. I look forward to working closely with Wilshire and their trusted sources on future home theater projects for our discerning clients."

Guests also enjoyed delicious local fare catered by Conejo Valley Catering and a full bar hosted by Beverlee's Bartending. Capping off the night was a complimentary raffle, which included great prizes from the Expo's participating vendor partners.

"The home automation market continues to experience strong growth," added McMaster. "Our hope is that the Spring Expo has ignited a sense of passion and curiosity in our local trades. Our goal, as the area's leading technology specialist, is to not only motivate architects, builders, designers and realtors to embrace the smart home but to also rely on Wilshire as a trusted partner who can help these professionals deliver true, added-value to their customers and projects."
