It’s nice to be back in Massachusetts following the heat of Orlando at this year’s InfoComm Show. The show was great and provided opportunities for learning new skills from other industry professionals, exposure to the cutting edge of what technologies are available now in AV installation and continuing positive relationships with manufacturers.
This year’s show focused on a few things that we at Rule Boston Camera already do well. There was talk about the move in our industry away from providing products and towards providing services. We go into most of our jobs assuming that all of your perspective installers can get you the same equipment that we can. What sets us apart needs to be our attention to detail and the ongoing relationship that we have in providing not only the gear you want but the “Engineering Services” you need.
The product category that seemed to have some buzz behind it this year was digital signage. I agree with many of the presenters at the show, that in the next year to three years, who is using digital signage, and how they are using it will change dramatically. New products at a wide range of vertical markets and price points can meet this need. It is our goal at Rule to ride this wave since we already started surfing it! We will take what we have learned from our clients who are already running digital signage and from those running bulletin boards on their PEG stations in order to offer a full range of products along with our engineering expertise to find the right solution for each customer’s need.
Each year at this show, I learn more and more of what else is out there. I am looking forward to implementing much of what I saw and to returning next year to learn more of what I have not even thought of yet.
