At InfoComm 18, Almo Professional A/V (Booth #C3484, Meeting Space #N240), North America’s largest professional audio visual distributor with global reach, is working with integrators and resellers to discuss new opportunities to partner for growth in the evolving AV industry.
For the second year in a row, Almo is a VIP sponsor of the InfoComm Opening Reception, which is taking place on June 5 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the OMNIA Nightclub at Caesars Palace. The ideal way to kick-off this year’s show, the event allows show attendees to network with colleagues, eat, dance and celebrate in a 75,000-square foot, multi-level nightclub, featuring stunning AV technology. Almo is hosting customers and partners in an exclusive loft space overlooking the main floor.
During InfoComm, Almo Pro A/V is focusing on the following:
NOBOX Ad Campaign
Almo is debuting a new ad campaign called NOBOX, which is designed to shift the focus beyond products and to managed services, which is where the sustainable opportunities lay.
View the “unboxing” of NOBOX with Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V.
Almo is the AV industry’s first distributor to create a service path for partners to expand expertise and create revenue while removing the obstacles of added staff and overhead. Almo introduced the managed services model several years ago starting with digital signage content creation, then added installation, control programming and telecommunications services. The results of the NOBOX ad campaign are expected to help drive the future of services in the AV industry.
Almo/Biamp Experience Room
Almo is also showcasing an Experience Room featuring the Biamp Systems Devio product line, which is offered by Almo throughout the U.S. and Mexico. Live demonstrations are being led by Brian Rhatigan, director of business development for Almo Professional A/V in the Almo onsite meeting space (#N240) on Wednesday, June 6 at 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., Thursday, June 7 at 12:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., and Friday at 12:00 p.m.

Almo/NEC Raspberry Pi Media Player
The Almo booth includes ongoing demonstrations of the NEC V554 with Raspberry Pi (RPi), an open-platform SoC that is both flexible and scalable. The NEC SoC powered by RPi is being shown as a media player option. Almo has written exclusive custom programming that plays the content automatically. The display is showing digital signage content via Almo’s cloud-based access. The combination of the RPi platform with the Almo Content is one of the most powerful and cost-effective digital signage options for integrators and their customers.
Samsung TV Q Series
Almo is the only exhibitor on the InfoComm show floor to showcase the new Samsung Electronics QLED home entertainment TV. Launched in March, the expansions to the QLED line are designed for today’s consumer who is mindful of the aesthetics of their space. The TV features ambient mode to play music, news updates or to even mimic the pattern on the wall behind the TV to blend into the room. It also has a new One Invisible Connection slim cable that combines consumer’s power and AV data to the TV, and smart capabilities that offer unique ways to set up the TV and find content. This model is available in both a flat and curved display option
