CEDIA Expo introduced new residential brands with the Launchpad and TechStarter programs. During CEDIA Expo 2022, the TechStarter program offered Launchpad exhibitors the opportunity to pitch their business models to a panel of industry judges.

PoolScout analyzes a pool’s livestream video in real-time to recognize unsafe scenarios and distribute reliable, effective alerts.

The Launchpad judges evaluated the brands on their product, innovation, opportunity and marketing and sales strategies.
