Smell the coffee with Connected Distribution at EI Live 2017
Connected Distribution is joining forces with its supplier partner, Pulse-Eight, to present the “Connected Distribution & Pulse-Eight Lounge” at this year’s EI Live. Not only will Connected be presenting nine of its key brands in the 180m2 exhibition space, but it will also be offering the visitors the best coffee at the show and free croissants for breakfast!
Upgrading its presence from a shell scheme to the considerable space at this year’s show makes a statement by Connected Distribution. A statement that, following the successful rebranding of 2016, the company is driving forwards with its ambitious business plan. The core principle of which is the seamless connection of supplier partners to customer partners, with the company providing the conduit. This means partnering with suppliers such as Pulse-Eight at events to put them in direct contact with Connected Distribution’s customers, so they can extoll the virtues of their products directly to the installers. Representatives from several suppliers will be present at the show.
Partnering with Pulse-Eight gives installers the opportunity to interact with the managing director and chief designer, Martin Ellis, and members of his engineering team. It will become clear from the cutting-edge product launches and demonstrations planned by Pulse-Eight, why Connected Distribution chose this British based company as its sole HD video management brand.
In addition to Pulse-Eight, Connected will be showcasing new products from Russound, Parasound, Cabasse, Sanus, Krika, Atlantic Technology, Yamaha and Earthquake.
From Russound, the company’s first 70V/100V line products will be on display. The XZone70V is a high-resolution streamer/amplifier that enables very long run and multiple speaker installations for commercial environments. The XZone70V provides streaming audio content from the cloud via vTuner, TuneIn and Spotify, from a local network and Apple AirPlay™ devices. Its powerful 70v/100v amplifier provides up to 300 watts of power in a single 1U chassis.
Also from Russound and getting its first UK showing, the recently introduced XZone4 is a 1U component offering four independent audio streams that support up to four rooms of audio.
The company’s other major electronics brand, Parasound, will be represented with the complete Zonemaster multi-channel amplifier line up and the new 4DAX, the first four-zone DAC for the custom installation industry. 4DAX is designed to improve the sound quality of multi-zone streaming audio installation based around streamers such as the Sonos Connect®, Google Chromecast™ Audio, Denon Heos® or Apple Airport Express®.
The Cabasse area of the product display will be focused on the company’s Stream range, specifically the new Stream BASE and Stream BAR. These soundbase and soundbar products provide all the network streaming services and multi-room capabilities of the existing Cabasse Stream range – Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz, TIDAL, Napster, vTuner – and bring far superior sound to flat panel TVs.
Partnering particularly well with the Cabasse Stream BASE, is the new WSTV1 Swivelling TV Mount from SANUS. Recently launched and getting its first UK public showing in the Connected Distribution Lounge, this innovative design enables a TV to be mounted in such a way as to appear to float above the soundbase, while providing up to 40 degrees of left to right swivel adjustment.
The most recent addition to the Connected Distribution portfolio, Krika, is aconnected devices remote tracker that provides installers with the ability to monitor and troubleshoot their installs without costly site visits. Representatives from Krika will be on hand to explain why this is a must have product for all installations.
Home theatre specialist brands, Atlantic Technology and Earthquake, will be represented by the latest additions to their loudspeaker ranges. Atlantic’s dedicated Dolby Atmos/DTS:X object based audio in-ceiling speakers and Earthquake’s compact in-wall LCR will be available for visitors to see. And from Yamaha, see the latest addition to its MusicCast products.
All show visitors are invited to the Connected Distribution & Pulse-Eight Lounge, where they will be able to relax with a great cup of coffee and a croissant for breakfast. Plus, they’ll have the chance to win a Pulse-Eight neo:4 Professional HD Matrix and get up to 50% off any Pulse-Eight purchases made on the day with a scratch-card promotion.
