The Vistacom Tech Expo 2023, celebrating its 15th anniversary, serves as a convergence point for key players in the Audio-Visual (AV) realm to spotlight their latest innovations. Amid a series of booth interviews, the expo facilitates a deep dive into the evolving AV technological landscape.

In one of the engaging booth dialogues, Bob Hivner, the Solutions and Consultants Manager at Legrand AV Brands, unpacks the new offerings from his company. Hivner points out the consolidation of reputable brands like Mid Atlantic, Body, Chief, Daylight, and Luxol under Legrand AV, enhancing the infrastructure portfolio in the AV industry.

Among the fresh releases, Hivner emphasizes the Chief Tempo Wall Mount, a sleek space solution requiring a close wall mount with a mere two-inch gap between the display and the wall. He also introduces the handy adapter rings, a go-to for easing connectivity transitions from USBC to HDMI or DisplayPort to HDMI.

On the audio front, the Easy IP solution garners attention, blending Dante audio with AV over IP in network settings, streamlining signal mixing and bridging. Moreover, the innovative SightLine screen design features a neat aesthetic with screens suspended by aircraft cables, which has been well-received by customers.

Through this conversation, attendees get a glimpse into Legrand AV’s commitment to aligning with the shifting demands in the AV sector; a narrative echoed across the various booth interviews at the Vistacom Tech Expo 2023.
