InfoComm 2018 has been a whirlwind of activity since the doors opened, and that energy shows no sign of slowing. One of the most exciting developments happened a few days before the show started: Cisco® received Avnu® certification for its Catalyst® 3650 and 3850 series switches. The Cisco Catalyst family also includes the AVB-enabled 9300 and 9500 Series. This year, our InfoComm booth features an AVB-enabled Catalyst switch, allowing you to experience its capabilities in person. Looking for additional details about what this certification means? Check out Cisco’s recent blog post. Cornerstone has more information about these AVB-enabled switches here.

We’ve been hosting live demonstrations of our TCM-1 Beamtracking™ microphones and PoE+ amplifier, allowing booth visitors to experience the superior audio quality and consistent room coverage firsthand. InfoComm 2018 also marked the debut of Biamp SageVue™, our browser-based software platform that enables technology managers, integrators, and end users to manage and monitor all Tesira® and Devio® devices connected to a customer’s network. With SageVue, technology managers can review system status and perform several administrative tasks. We also introduced the EX-UBT, which brings USB audio extension capabilities to conference rooms and multi-purpose spaces. With the EX-UBT you can extend USB audio throughout your entire facility via AVB/TSN. The EX-UBT also supports Bluetooth® wireless technology, which allows users to continue a cell phone call while transitioning into a conference room. Wondering how the Biamp booth looked before it was so crowded? Here are a few photos.

One week prior to InfoComm, Biamp was voted Favorite Manufacturer-Based Training Program at the rAVe 7th annual Readers’ Choice Awards. More than 92,000 voters cast ballots for the rAVe 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards, so this win is a huge honor! Here’s another huge honor: we’re pleased to announce that Biamp won a GPA Global Excellence Award at InfoComm. Both awards are pictured below.

Ready for one more huge honor? Biamp’s TCM microphones and PoE+ amplifier won Sound & Video Contractor’s 2018 Best of Show Award.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth this week. We enjoyed talking with all of you. If you couldn’t make it, we understand, and we hope you can visit us at InfoComm 2019.
