Las Vegas, NV:
This year’s InfoComm show was one for the record books with an attendance of 38,833 visitors. 1,000 exhibitors, including a staggering 211 new exhibitors filled the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Symetrix booth was buzzing with activity, with a non-stop stream of visitors coming by to check out the newly announced Solus NX lineup. Response to the entire Solus NX line was tremendous, from dealers and systems integrators to media, with Solus NX 16×8 winning a Best of Show award from Sound & Video Contractor Magazine.
The open architecture Solus NX series is designed for standalone DSP applications that don’t require Dante™ networking. The three DSP models (16×8, 8×8, 4×4) provide the same unrivalled processing power and memory as the Symetrix Radius, Prism, and Edge products. The series compatibility with Symetrix’ award-winning Composer programming software was a major factor in S&VC’s Best of Show award decision.
InfoComm attendees also got a first look at Symetrix’ soon-to-be-released Control Server, a powerful network-based control platform for Symetrix DSPs. Set up using Composer, Control Server apps are launched in web browsers running on any networked computer, tablet, or smartphone. The initial Mixer app was a hit with booth visitors, as was Control Server’s wireless capability. Along with Control Server and Solus NX, the newest iteration of Composer was also on demo at the booth, capturing attention with its dramatically enhanced processing capabilities.
Symetrix, along with other top-tier industry leaders co-sponsored the sixth annual Dante AV Networking World education event during InfoComm 2016. The all-day workshop is an excellent venue for delivering the tools and information to design consultants, system integrators, audio engineers and IT managers to work with Dante, Audinate’s revolutionary audio networking solution. The interactive, hands-on workshops featured Symetrix Prism 8×8 DSPs in every workspace.
“Without a doubt, this has been our most successful InfoComm, if not our most successful trade show ever,” remarked Mark Ryals, Symetrix Director of Marketing. “The response to Solus NX in particular has been absolutely remarkable, and there was a lot of excitement and enthusiasm around the potential of Control Server and the Mixer app. We’re looking forward to a great year.”
