If you were to scroll through your social media feeds, you’d likely see more videos than any other kind of post. Well, in the real world, companies capitalize on pro video products more each year — but instead of sharable, reaction-heavy posts, they require laser projectors, video displays, projection panels and other technologies.
School video boards are getting larger and more impressive each year. Videoconferencing is expanding in market share. And digital video is popping up in places where it wasn’t previously a common amenity.
Laser projectors in particular had an incredibly large presence at InfoComm.
But it’s not about the products. The value that integration firms and consultants bring to customers is in understanding their unique organization challenges and designing systems that solve them.
That being said, products are a big part of those solutions. Throughout 2017 the industry saw great innovation from its manufacturers.
2017 was a year in which companies focused on how to provide product solutions that help integrators address their clients’ emerging huddle and conference room needs.
Meanwhile, how content is distributed also evolved throughout 2017.
Many manufacturers touted new AV over IP solutions, while others focused on streaming products.
The products we’ve gathered here are, by no means, the only products released during 2017, nor do they create an all-encompassing list of beneficial products for the AV industry.
With that disclaimer in place, however, you’ve got to admit that these 8 laser projectors, video displays, projection panels go a long way toward defining the direction that pro video integration took in 2017.
