InfoComm 2024, Part 1: Live-Sound Show Returns in Full Force

InfoComm is back in full swing. After four years of a COVID-driven erratic schedule, the audio expo has returned with a four-day slate of training (June 8-11) and three days of exhibits (June 12-14) at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Backed by the Audio Visual and Integrated Experience Association (AVIXA), Infocomm is putatively the leading installed-AV trade show in the U.S. (AVIXA partners with CEDIA — Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association — for the similarly themed Integrated Systems Europe annual expo.) However, the rise of digital technology means that many of the same vendors who show at events like the NAB Show and IBC are also present in force at InfoComm.

More specifically, InfoComm has become the de facto leading live-sound expo in the world. Sound-system manufacturers may make some deals at their booths on the show floor, but the meat-and-potatoes of their wares are on vividly loud display in the LVCC’s massive demo rooms. System subwoofers have the nearly 30 ft. needed to unroll just half a 20-Hz wavelength — the kind of low-frequency punch now required in a venue like Madison Square Garden, whether the featured act there is Justin Timberlake or the New York Knicks.

Here, in the first of a two-part preview, are some of the new audio products that will be on the InfoComm show floor, including massive PA components that sports venues rely on to create sonic fan engagement.

Dante Media Encryption protects the content of media flows using strong AES-256 encryption, safeguarding media from interception or unauthorized access. Designed with security at its core, Dante offers device-, network-, and media-level protections for pro-AV manufacturers to integrate into their products and system solutions. The accelerating convergence of AV equipment and IT network technologies has increased the need for integrators and manufacturers to provide network protection with security-conscious designs and adherence to emerging IoT (Internet-of-Things) network regulations.
