InfoComm is the largest annual professional audiovisual trade show in North America. Historically, an in-person event, InfoComm 2020 was hosted virtually this year from June 16-18. And what better group of people to adapt to virtual conferencing than a bunch of AV professionals?
I am pleased to bring you, in Ultimate Technologies Group’s judgment, the top 10 new technology releases.

9. Crestron Flex R-SERIES
The new Crestron Flex R-Series is a mobile UC System that brings collaboration to wherever it’s needed most. Closing the distance between remote teams wherever they may be. Quickly. Easily. Cost-effectively. All that’s required is two cables: power and network. The R-Series supports Microsoft Teams, Zoom Rooms, or BYOD conferencing. Some models also support both native and BYOD on the same system. All R-Series models include an intelligent camera with 150 degree field of view and up to a 20 foot mic range to ensure all are seen and heard.
8. Acoustical Surfaces – SoundBlox Acoustic Partitions
Create comfortable workspaces with modular acoustical panels set up in a variety of configurations. This not only creates an acoustically absorbent workspace, but also provides a barrier between office mates in case one team member is ill. SoundBlox partitions are expandable by purchasing additional packs.
7. Utelogy remote monitoring and virtual control
Utelogy makes a bold move into the future by providing a platform that can work with any product to not only monitor it remotely, but also control it.
