INFOCOMM ’24 – Part 1

Having binged on AV gear at Barcelona’s ISE earlier this year, CX decided to skip 2024’s Las Vegas iteration of InfoComm, which turned out to be a pretty popular choice in the APAC AV community. Here, we’ve collated all the product news from what was, by all accounts, a great show, capped off by a tour of the ground-breaking venue Sphere, which even the most jaded of techs have been describing as utterly awe-inspiring.

We must check it out soon!



The AMX SVSI N2600D Wallplate Encoders and Decoders are the latest enhancement to the N2600 Series and bring Dante AV-A support to an encoder and decoder wallplate for the first time. All N2600 models feature support for a high-quality, extremely low- latency 4K60 4:4:4 MWC codec that is perfect for transmitting both live video and detailed content. They also feature Virtual Network USB 2.0 Hub technology, video preview images viewable from the built-in web interface or from a touch panel, low-power mode for energy savings, and support for the most discerning high-security networks.

dBTechnologies IS210L, IS120T and IS115S


dBTechnologies introduced three new models in the IS Series: the IS210L line array module, point source IS120T, and IS115S subwoofer. With increased SPL and expanded frequency response, and an IP55 certification, the newly designed IS audio system is built for maximum durability in the most demanding environments.


The IS210L symmetrical design includes two 10- inch woofers with 2.5-inch voice coils and a 1.4-inch (exit), 2.4-inch voice coil compression driver mounted on a waveguide. Equipped with the same transducers as the IS210L, and also in a symmetrical configuration, the IS210T point-source loudspeaker has a 90×40 rotatable horn. The IS115S flyable subwoofer is the most adaptable and powerful addition to the IS Series’ high-performance systems, providing the best low-frequency extension for the IS series. It is also IP55-rated and comes in white or black.
