Absen Partners with AV providers at InfoComm

Absen Inc. will showcase its latest LED solutions in collaboration with multiple key AV partners throughout its booth #N1618 at the annual InfoComm Tradeshow taking place in Las Vegas, NV.

As the LED market continues to grow exponentially among a multitude of fixed applications such as retail,
corporate, and houses of worship, so does the need for customized mounting gear. Absen understands
first-hand how important mounting gear is to ensure a smooth installation for today’s growing fine pixel
pitch LED walls. Some of the top mounting providers, such as Draper, Peerless-AV, Premier Mounts and
Chief, have partnered with Absen to develop specific mounting gear for Absen’s Acclaim Series. Each
partner’s gear will be showcased among the various sized LED walls throughout the booth as well as
each partners’ booths for attendees to experience.

LED and mounting gear are two key elements that go into creating an amazing LED wall. However, its
often the elements that happen behind the scenes that go unnoticed such as processors and software
that round out a strong installation. To best bring to life the various market experiences at InfoComm,
Absen has partnered with software provider, Xentiant and their interactive visual experience platform as
well as with custom content creator, Avatar-Plus.

Xentiant will be featuring its software at the Absen booth through the creation of a social media wall in the
fixed installation area of the booth. Here, attendees can not only see the latest Twitter, Facebook and
Instagram posts, but interact with them by downloading its app.

To help create more engaging and market relevant content, Absen partnered with Avatar-Plus, a new
sister company of Avatar Studio, who office is based in New York City. Avatar-Plus was tasked to develop
captivating short content rich stories that will be played throughout the booth to not only highlight the LED
walls’ capabilities and quality, but also provide a more immersive atmosphere for attendees as they walk
through the booth. To deliver the custom content, Absen will be utilizing BrightSign XT243, LS423 and
4K media players.
