InfoComm Connected 2020

For many of you, like us here at TVS Pro, who look forward to the filled exhibit halls with hundreds of vendors showing off thousands of products , you might feel a little out of place this year to know that InfoComm was cancelled and restructured. As this year’s InfoComm show was moved to a virtual platform, called InfoComm Connected, we took the time to research our key manufacturers and bring you the most applicable products that are being integrated in the current marketplace.

Conference Video

As COVID-19 has taken over our workplace, we are constantly reminded how important it is that we all stay on the same page. The most effective way of achieving this is through video conferencing. Having the ability to visually connect with each and every member in the meeting can be imperative to not only convey your message, but to see and react to each others non verbal communication patterns as well.
