Infocomm lightning thoughts
June 17, 2009 by Dave Haynes
1 – Oh my God it is hot down here!
2 – This show doesn’t seem all that busy.
3 – Guys I know are basically saying what they’ve seen is the “same old stuff” … Some of the panel guys seem to have the same booth and stuff they had last year
4 – Unless I missed it, none of the big software guys are going over the top with their booths, and Ronin, BroadSign and a few others are conspicuously absent. A DS company going big here would be badly advised, so this is encouraging.
5 – A number of companies like RDM, Aerva and others have co-located in other guys’ booths.
6 – Infocomm is still very much an integrators show
7 – I have seen some interesting stuff, like an arc-light thing that can replace regular projector bulbs and greatly extend life cycles… more on them later
8- I need a beer(s)
