No one yet doing tunable lighting control over Z-Wave?

“Logitech is supporting CE pros with a dedicated dealer portal that allows integrators to manage all their accounts.” That’s a joke, after they deleted our dealer account with 1,100 remotes and kept insisting that it never existed, despite the fact we had it since 2005 and were adding/replacing remotes on a daily basis.

The ability to just replace existing bulbs was a plus. It just seemed like a really well thought out and executed product. We’re going to get an up close look at it soon to really try it out.

I love that design/build community will be invited to attend the CEDIA show.  A local designer we work with has attended CEDIA on her own and she always has great things to say about it.

One major difference for the exhibitors will be changing the sales pitch to speak the lingo of the listener.  No longer will you expect your buyer to be a home technology provider, so the conversation of margin and pricing should be well-managed.  Exhibitors will need to be sensitive to this part of the conversation or they may alienate their dealers.  At the same time, exhibitors will need to shelve the tech-talk to focus on the benefits, system solutions, etc. that the technology offers - not a list of specifications and acronyms.

Everything I heard about the educational offerings this year was great. I’m glad to hear educational as well as overall attendance were up this year! The ideas of fostering the relationships between designers and integrators will help increase awareness of CEDIA and our industry as a whole. I also like the idea of Smart Stage as a means to promote new attendee engagement opportunities. Networking between attendees continues to be one of the things we enjoy about the show; developing that in new attendees and helping them become engaged within the community will have great results.

The Ketra lighting stood out because of the circadian mode changing the temperature to be natural along with the sun’s movement. And the ability to tune it to pop colors without changing the color temperature was really impressive. I can see this product opening doors in restaurants and galleries, which we have a lot of in our market. The ability to just replace existing bulbs was a plus. It just seemed like a really well thought out and executed product. We’re going to get an up close look at it soon to really try it out.

Did you see other tunable lighting? Curious why Ketra stands out.

Ketra was the most impressive demo of the entire show, IMO.

John, I have pulled many 1080p TV’s out over the last few years, 100’s! Replaced them with Sony and LG. Even LG OLED. We have hooked up to Hopper/Hopper3/DirecTV they ALL look like CRAP compared to what the customer had with their 1080p. 720p or 1080i on the new 4k TV’s look horrible. They are over compressed and suffer in compression artifacts. When factory reps tell us they know, when I spend hours testing and submitting these finding to Dish engineers who then reply back with the info of I know we are working and have TV’s setup tying to fix this. All you had to do was walk into the Dish booth and see it for yourself. They are quite aware of the problem. BUT, as dealer, I have guys like you, a distributor, this magazine, and the TV industry trying to hide behind this huge flaw! Everybody knows its true, but no one wants to admit it. They say, just look at this 4k on YouTube or Amazon or Netflix. Sorry dudes, why popular as it may, most people have cable or sat in their homes.  The TV manufactures are pushing 4k like a car manufacture pushes “it can go 150 mph” but hey, how often can I go that fast?  The only TV so far I have seen that is better, is the new Sony OLED. Picture is much better than regular 4k sets.
