The Defender Series protects AV equipment from electrical transients with patented non-sacrificial Multi-Stage surge suppression technology.

With three stages of protection, the Defender Series ensures equipment is safeguarded from the harmful effects of surge energy and its advanced filtering virtually eliminates normal and common mode electrical noise interference that can cause reboots and downtime.

CI: What else created a buzz in your booth at the show?

CI: What’s one last impression you’d like us to take away from SurgeX’s InfoComm presence this year?

This year at InfoComm, we discussed the importance of a solid power foundation with our partners.

Over the years as more and more devices are added to the network, we’ve found that many within the industry believe the network is the foundation of the install and so long as that is installed or calibrated correctly, everything else will go smoothly.

We’re here to communicate that, no matter how perfectly calibrated your network is, if that network is receiving dirty or unstable power, those conditions can bring that network down.

We’re not understating the importance of the network, rather we want to educate our partners on the threats power presents to sensitive networks and connected equipment.

An installation built from the bottom up with solid power as it’s foundation can ensure less lock ups, downtime, and help safeguard a dealer’s reputation.
