AVI Signs distribution agreement with CreateLED

Audio Visual Intelligence has added the CreateLED video wall solutions into its product portfolio. The products will make their AVI debut at The Facilities show 2020 (Excel London, 8 – 10 September).

CreateLED designs, develops, manufactures high-quality LED video solutions for multiple indoor and outdoor applications, including Corporate boardroom and reception rooms, command and control centres; media, advertising and retail displays; sports and architectural presentations; and event and conferencing venues around the throughout the world.

“CreateLED’s wide range of panels is a great addition to our portfolio,” said Stuart Humphries, managing director of Audio Visual Intelligence. “We know that our customers need solutions for all kinds of LED wall requirements and this new relationship with CreateLED will allow us to fulfil each one.

“The great advantage of the CreateLED range is that they just work,” he added. “They are easy to install, configure and maintain with the added bonus of having UK support. That is a particular benefit in some of the large scale AV installations we are now collaborating on, and which will be expected to run unattended once installed.”

Paul Langridge (VP Sales – UK and ME) for CreateLED “ It’s exciting times in the LED market in terms of CreateLED’s technology with the release this year of our new 4k controller and Matt Ebony P1.2 panel and the price now being at a point that competes favourably with flat panel displays. With our wide selection of Hi-res indoor and outdoor LED panels along with Stuarts team at AV-Intelligence whose past experience in this market has helped to deliver some exciting end-user projects, we see our partnership as a key benefit to the integrator and end-user client projects.

 There will be some demo dates later this year to be announced once things return to normal where you can see these panels in action. They will be at the Facilities show later this year as well. Contact Sales@av-intel.co.uk or 01628 20 30 40 for more information.

ISE 2020 – Blustream Review

ISE is when manufactures show off the latest and greatest products and Blustream was no different. The stand was busy all show and had a great buzz about it. Here are some of the products that where on show all available from Audio Visual Intelligence.

Blustream have released two Dante audio solutions which are available now the DA11AU – 2 Ch Audio to Dante converter and the DA44AU – 4 x 4 Dante audio converter. The later features 4x analogue audio inputs that are converted into a Dante compatible audio.

A big highlight on the Blustream stand was the new modular matrix solution. Available in 8 x 8 or 16 x 16 chassis this will allow the user to configure the switch using any of the available cards. The switch supports 4K and 18 Gbps providing the latest in technology.

What will be guaranteed to be an installers favourite is the new HDBaseT wall plates from Blustream. With two options one HDMI with RS232 and IR and the 2nd having 2x HDMI 1x USB C and IR both providing extension up to 70mtrs (40mtrs at 4K). They look amazing and are available from AVI now.

Again a busy show for Blustream and we are not surprised the new products are great and we cannot wait to start showing our customers and seeing what installations they will be using them for. As with all our brands we keep stock and can provide demo units if you would like to test. Call Audio Visual Intelligence on 01628 20 30 40.

ISE 2020 – Neets Review

Between the Corona Virus and Storm Ciara attendance numbers where significantly down at ISE and being the last time the show is in Amsterdam that is a huge shame. Well the team at Audio Visual Intelligence has decided to put together a range of stand reviews to give you some of the updates and new products that our brands where showing this year. Starting with Neets we will be providing the updates from our Manufactures stands so it feels like you where with us all along.

The Neets stand was filled with your regular culprits the Control Panels and Touch screens where shown off including last years RAVE winner the Uniform panel. The Uniform in particular had 2 demo stations showing how easy it is to program. (It took me less than 5 minutes from start to end) With the E-Ink technology in the Uniform there is also no need to print labels and extremely easy to change if required.

One of the highlights of the Neets stand was the new Bolzano UI designed by Neets this professional looking UI can be used with any colour combination and can easy add the company logo where needed. This was also shown on the new 8″ panel prototype which is made from recycled plastic. A very nice idea from Neets and showing they care for the environment, with this they have also implemented ways to save energy with automatic shutdown built into their software.

The newest product from Neets is the Solvo not expected to be released until Q2 this brought in the crowds as the named Pro AV system out of the box the Solvo is a hub that allows AV professionals to set up an entire AV system for smaller, low-tech meeting rooms without requiring configuration or special software. Its so new that Neets where asking installers what they expected to pay for a solution like this.

We had some great meetings on the Neets stand and some positive customer feedback everyone really liked the Uniform and how easy it was to program. If you would like a demo or to discuss any of your room control requirements any further please get in touch with sales@av-intel.co.uk or 01628 20 30 40.

Neets Bundle – Welcome to the Room

Neets movement-detection

With our Neets Welcome to the Room bundle we help presenters get their meetings up and running effortlessly.

Today’s meeting rooms and learning spaces are incorporating more and more AV technology. However, this often ends up making it difficult for the presenter to use the room and to figure out how to start a meeting.

The goal of our Welcome to the Room bundle is to make a user-friendly guide that appears on the display as soon as movement is detected in the room. We believe this guide will make meetings more efficient and interactive as the participants can use the available AV technology quickly and effectively.

Great meetings start with a simple set-up procedure. It’s critical that the presenter is allowed to focus on content delivery and not be required to figure out how the AV technology works.
av-control-system_sierra
The Neets bundle includes:
• Neets Control System – SieRRa II
• Printed label for the keypad
• Media player
• Easylux PIR sensor
• USB key including Neets Project Designer project file and a “Start Presentation” image to display
• System overview

Note: Cables, frame and back box for the SieRRa II are not included.

At Neets AV the Focus is on Making it Usable.

At Neets AV the Focus is on Making it Usable.

At Neets AV the Focus is on Making it Usable.

Users don´t really care about the technology itself, with the possible exception of some tech first-adopters who immerse themselves in the many wonders the AV industry creates. Most presenters simply want technology to work for them when they need it. Every time they need it.

So, why are many meeting rooms and learning spaces stuffed with technology and fancy devices with endless possibilities that will never be used? Large interactive and touch displays over loaded with features and functions?

IT/AV managers are the link between technology and users. They need to make difficult technology purchasing decisions, knowing that in a few months some devices may be discontinued or out of date with new ones offering even more functionality, higher resolution and more features.

When that is the case, how does an IT/AV manager make the right decisions and not just end up creating a need for even more IT support?

An important rule of thumb is keeping the focus on the user experience and finding ways to make life easier for the presenter. Instead of expensive control systems and equipment racks for example, they should install a simple keypad controller in every meeting room or learning space. Having the same user interface in every room means that you can turn the display on/off, turn the volume up/down, and switch between the laptop and screen the same way in every room.

It’s simply easier and more intuitive for users, and that’s exactly what the team at Neets focus on. They believe in making life easy for presenters, whether that’s with physical keypad buttons equivalent to a fixed remote control, touch panel-based solutions or even automatic-detecting display controllers.
