Topic: CEDIA Convention
Place: CEDIA Convention, Indianapolis Convention Center
Approximately 20 of us got to tour the CEDIA show floor courtesy of Don Gilpin at CEDIA HQ. After a brief delay (apologies – Jeff D. Symanski), we journeyed to the Goldline booth and heard a brief presentation from Anthony Grimani, President of PMI, Inc., about setting up surround sound environments, the tools needed and the results expected. Due to the delay and the crowded nature of the Convention, we were unable to hear about anything special at Klipsch or Escient (again, my apologies – JDS), but the group dissolved to peruse the show floor at their leisure. After the close of the show floor, a few of us took the footbridge over to the Westin for a Theta Digital Demo courtesy of David Ripp, Eastern Regional Manager (and Section member). The demo was very well received. The technology was quite impressive and the audio demonstrations – some recorded right here in Indiana – were of top-notch quality. Fun was had by all who attended the CEDIA Convention. We will definitely have to organize future co-events such as this in the future.
