Snap One has unveiled a sneak peek of Booth #3634 at InfoComm 2023, which will feature a range of solutions from Binary, Control4, Episode and Strong that deliver enhanced capabilities specifically suited for commercial projects.
“We’re deeply committed to our Partners’ success and growth and have invested in building commercial-grade, high-performance solutions that support any-sized commercial job,” comments Snap One commercial market director Scott Normand.
“In addition to developing new solutions, we have also significantly strengthened our national footprint of physical stores, simplifying product procurement and project scheduling at a time when commercial installers need it the most.”
Snap One recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of its Snap Local Partner Store program that has already brought same-day local product availability to more than 40 locations across North America, making it the largest network of physical custom integration stores in the United States.
“Combined with the company’s 38 training centers, this growing network provides commercial integrators with immediate access to in-demand products while also offering scheduled training sessions on new products and opportunities to meet with third-party manufacturers,” notes Normand.
In addition to emphasizing the benefits of local availability, Snap One will have a host of new solutions on display. The new Binary 960 Series MoIP series, debuting at the show, offers next-gen video distribution with a 10G capable network, 4K60 distribution, advanced audio routing, and broad flexibility to grow or integrate various additional displays in the future. As a bonus for integrators, full OvrC compatibility further simplifies installation and device management, which can save time and money.
Attendees can also demo the all-new Strong Carbon Series ceiling and wall mounts that provide superior quality and strength while helping consolidate partners’ supply chains. With models to support displays up to 100 inches and 500 pounds, the Carbon Series makes any location ideal for virtually any size screen. Recognizing the importance of equipment protection and the space constraints common in modern projects, Snap one is also showing the new Strong In-Cabinet Slide-Out Racks that deliver improved performance and valuable 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.
Additionally, the cloud-based OvrC remote management and monitoring platform will demonstrate efficiency and cost-saving capabilities such as remote equipment resets, automatic issue notifications, real-time device info and simple project tracking. The company boasts that integrators benefit from OvrC’s dashboard that provides an instant view into all active systems regardless of location or complexity and highlights any incidents that require attention.
Those interested in media distribution will experience how the simple Control4 MultiDisplay Manager interface enables users to easily control multiple digital displays, TVs or projectors from a single page, select audio sources independently of active video sources, and create presets for instant room reconfiguration. It is available on all new and existing Control4 systems running OS 3.2.4 or newer and also offers end-users a Swap button to alternate two sources between two selected displays. The full Control4 automation platform will also be present, allowing attendees to experience the simplicity and user-friendly features that make it an ideal choice for commercial environments including retail and hospitality.
For audio needs, Snap One is highlighting its Episode Radiance outdoor speaker and lighting system, which the company claims is 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. This specialized system is accompanied by an Episode 70-volt pendant, flush-mount and all-weather surface-mount speakers that deliver sound for any space, from high open ceilings to outdoor patios in restaurants, hotels, venues and more.
