InfoComm 2013 Highlights - rAVe Publications Chooses AmpliVox PA Systems to Broadcast Announcements

InfoComm 2013
has come to a close, and one of its main attractions was all of the games and festivities going on at the booth of Rave Publications. Rave Pubs is a digital media group that focuses on delivering news covering audio visual technology and its tradeshows. This year Rave Pubs detailed all aspects of InfoComm13 by deploying an army of videographers onto the show floor to shoot videos on every single new product producing a catalog of what was presented at InfoComm13.

In addition to the InfoComm13 news coverage, Rave Publications and its sponsors brought to the event “The Game 4”, a Plinko style game tournament played at each sponsor’s booth giving away prizes such as head phones, gift cards, flash drives, iPod shuffles, Apple TVs, iPads, rAVe t-shirts and super hero collectibles. The first player at each booth who had their chip land in the specially marked sponsored slot then had qualified for a chance to win a 2013 Smart Car.

The winner at each booth was then entered into Rave’s Tournament of Champions, where competitors played against each other in a game of bean bag toss. Players advanced by tossing three bean bags and making more in the hole than their opponents. The lucky player that made it to the final got to play Dave Labuskes, CEO and executive director of InfoComm 2013, and if you could beat Dave then you would win the 2013 Smart Car.

rAVe Publications chose AmpliVox PA systems to broadcast announcements for their Tournament of Champions using the SW720 iPad, iPhone, iPod Wireless PA System and multiple S207 Beltblaster Pros for announcements, audio support and crowd control throughout the show, including their trips around the show floor during the opening Plinko rounds.

rAVe was very pleased with the performance of the AmpliVox PA systems. Here is what their President, Gary Kayye, had to say:

"At this year's InfoComm show, we selected AmpliVox for our live voice amplification system for rAVe's THE GAME 4 as well as to allow for LIVE listening of our Podcasts in the booth - both worked flawlessly.

Not only did the gear work exactly as advertised - something we don't often see in AV - but the user experience was perfect. It worked right out of the box, kept a charge all day and we never even had to open the user's manual. Bravo to AmpliVox for a truly 10+ customer experience factor!"
