Snap One has announced it will exhibit a complete range of commercial solutions at the inaugural Commercial Integrator Expo 2023 being held in conjunction with CEDIA Expo 2023 at the Colorado Convention Center from September 7-9, 2023.
According to the global company, it will show solutions from Araknis, Sunbrite, Control4, Episode and Strong that are designed to complement commercial projects. These brands provide options to allow integrators to choose from Araknis routers and switches, to Strong TV mounts and rack solutions, as well as outdoor AV components from SunBrite TV and Episode.
Moreover, Snap One will feature its Control4 interface for deploying digital signage networks and video walls.
The news comes following Snap One’s announcement of its booth lineup for CEDIA Expo 2023, which will be co-located with Commercial Integrator Expo, as well the company’s announcement that it will be pursuing litigation against Josh.ai and AVA for product similarities with the company’s NEEO remote.

In our mission to serve these Partners with the best products and services, we have remained diligent at creating professional-grade solutions that are designed for commercial projects,” comments Scott Normand, commercial market director, Snap On.
“At CI Expo 2023, we are showcasing many of the products that we’ve been developing on for the past few years, including a new line of business-class Araknis switches, innovative Strong Racks and Mounts, unique landscape lighting and audio solutions from Episode, and the Control4 Multi-Display Manager for bars and restaurants.”

As part of the new industry event, the company will show its new Araknis 920, 620, 520 and 220 Series products where integrators can find routers capable of up to 2.5Gbps, and switches featuring the latest 10Gbps capabilities that include PoE++, Layer 3 functionality, interVLAN routing, static routing, and multicast routing. These switches also offer typical layer 2 features such as MoIPv3 required ACL’s, IGMP snooping & querier, MAC based VLANs, link aggregation, QoS, STP and LLDP.
Snap One points out that it will demonstrate its Control4 MultiDisplay Manager software that enables users to control multiple digital displays, TVs or projectors from a single page, as well as select audio sources independently of active video sources, and create presets for instant room reconfiguration. It provides instant, convenient control through Control4 Touchpanels and the Control4 mobile app on systems running OS 3.2.4 or newer and also offers end-users a Swap button to alternate two sources between two selected displays.
Focusing on rack components and mounts, the company will show its Strong Carbon Series ceiling mounts that provide the ability to help consolidate supply chain product ordering processes. With models to support displays up to 100 inches and 500 pounds, Snap One emphasizes its Carbon Series makes any location approachable for virtually any size screen.
Recognizing the importance of equipment protection and the space constraints common in renovations and upgrades, Snap one is also showing the new Strong In-Cabinet Slide-Out Racks that deliver features such as pedal-activated slide and rotation release, multiple locking positions, and sizes from 8U to 42U that all support up to 136kg of equipment.
Addressing the surging outdoor AV technology market, Snap One will highlight its Episode Radiance outdoor speaker and lighting system, which it says is one of the world’s first 70-volt combination lighting and audio solution that requires just a single two-conductor wire and helps custom integrators break into lighting installation without requiring burdensome electrical certifications. Snap One boasts this specialized system is accompanied by the Episode 70-volt pendant, flush-mount and all-weather surface-mount speakers.
Covering the video portion of the outdoor AV category, Snap One is featuring the latest Sunbrite Veranda 3 TVs in its Commercial Integrator Expo exhibit. This product line provides a 4K UHD resolution, along with 1,000-nit brightness ratings, Wi-Fi network connectivity, dual 10-watt speakers, quantum dot display technologies; a native 120Hz refresh rates, and IP55-rated enclosures to protect the products from the elements.
In addition, the TVs come with weatherproof remotes, the Android TV smart television operating system (OS), and cable entry openings that are sealed by gaskets. Designed for use in fully shaded areas, the TVs offer complete protection against the elements while delivering quality images, and the outdoor TVs are offered in a choice of sizes.
