Orlando, FL (June 17, 2011)–It’s the theme of the show for a reason: IT is becoming a significant part of the AV marketplace, and integrators will benefit from knowing exactly what that means for their businesses.
On the show floor, CompTIA, the Computing Technology Industry Association, is sponsoring the IT Solutions Pavilion. 3M, AMX, Bosch, Canon, Christie, Cisco, ClearOne, Crestron, Epson, Extron, Harman, Harris, Hitachi, Hewlett-Packard, LG, LifeSize, Mitsubishi, NEC, Panasonic, Polycom, Samsung, Sanyo, Sharp, Sony, Texas Instruments and more are on hand with the latest in IT network services, consulting, outsourcing and support.
CompTIA also sponsored several educational sessions that explored how cloud and Help Desk services can be implemented to save money and be more efficient. The association is also engaged with InfoComm’s Sustainable Technology Environments Program (STEP), an effort by manufacturers, designers, integrators, programmers and the users of technology to guide project and building owners to implement best practices for green AV and IT and to promote sustainable use of technology.
“We’re very pleased that’s going on, since managed services are going to be everywhere,” says Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., executive director and CEO, InfoComm International. “One of the things we want to be able to do is have people see it at the show, learn about it at the show, so that their businesses are able to incorporate the best thinking from it as well as some of the technologies.”
IT professionals attending the InfoComm Show had the opportunity to mingle with colleagues and peers at the inaugural networking reception last night. As InfoComm continues to foster AV/IT integration, be sure to expect more events like this, as well as expanded educational and exhibition opportunities, in the years to come.
