Issue 147: April 25, 2018
Amidst a busy week of international shows such as NAB and PL+S Frankfurt, InfoComm China has once again shown that it is on a growth trajectory and will only get better. Growing not just in size but scale as well, IFC is going places - in products, processes, and, of course people. One thing for sure, the Chinese brands are showing that they are up to the mark in terms of quality and technology and will pose a good competition to the Western domination. As one of the local brands spokesperson commented, "Our market is so huge; we have our hands full here itself; we do not need to go out. As it is, the world will come to us, like you did." In this E-newsletter we also highlight proudly some of the reddot award 2018 winners from our industry. Design is a critical aspect of the overall experience and kudos to the companies highlighted in showing that when it comes to technology, design is an equally important part of the package.
