Each year at InfoComm, you feel like you might get lost in NEC Display Solutions‘ booth. 2017 will be no exception. In the video above, Rich Ventura, VP of business development and solutions, NEC, gives Commercial Integrator a preview of what’s in store for the show, and the list sure isn’t short.

“We’ll be focusing a lot on high-end integration,” explains Ventura. That means direct-view LED solutions, projection mapping, projection edge blending, and video wall solutions, as well as “a heavy focus on the vertical markets,” Ventura adds.

In 2017, alongside 4K displays, large format displays and interactive displays, attendees will be able to see NEC’s displays combined with T1V’s ThinkHub software after T1V and NEC collaborated on a series of bundled collaboration products back in September 2016.

The bundles include an NEC touch-interactive 55-inch, 70- inch or 80-inch display combined with the choice of T1V ThinkHub Base software, which provides two wireless device connections over a LAN network, or ThinkHub Standard software, which provides unlimited wireless device connections over any network in the world, according to a press release issued by the two companies.

The bundles can be customized by adding wall mounts, mobile carts, cameras, support packages and upgrade options.

“Our partnership with T1V delivers a set of tools that enhance business results,” Ventura commented at the time of launch. “Professionals at educational institutions and in corporations gain important capabilities to make their collaboration, both in person and remotely, much more productive and fulfilling.”

Now NEC is launching a series of brand-new displays for the ThinkHub at InfoComm 2017.

In addition, attendees visiting InfoComm who did not attend Digital Signage Expo (DSE) this year will also be able to check out NEC’s Embedded Solutions Wall for the first time, which Ventura says was “extremely well received” at DSE. There, the company will show Raspberry Pi and the BrightSign operating system alongside the NEC i7 operating system so attendees can see the differences in the technologies in a live side-by-side demo.

Ventura again emphasizes a “heavy, heavy focus on integration” at the show. Watch the video above to learn more about what NEC has in store for InfoComm attendees this week in Orlando.
