Julie Jacobson: 18 Home Automation and A/V Hits at CEDIA 2015

CEDIA Expo 2015 reveals hundreds of new products, but here are just 18 we hope you saw in the home automation, audio, video and business management categories.

CEDIA Expo 2015 has ended but the news is just beginning. Unfortunately, I had created this slideshow of home automation, audio and video products you should see and hear before the show ended, but a CEPro.com glitch meant the story didn’t go live during the show.

So, with apologies, here is a gallery of products that hopefully you were able to see in Dallas. We’ll be following up with many of these developments in the next week or two.

The new and notables include:

What you didn’t see at CEDIA 2015 were booths for HydraConnect and AVocation, both makers of high-performance A/V switchers. Both had been scheduled to exhibit, but Hydraconnect is embroiled in some litigation and AVocation, we hear, has come on hard times.

Hydraconnect's Sean Greer told CE Pro earlier this month that the company was still in business and no changes were anticipated at that time. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - JULIE JACOBSON image image image image
