Corridor Canvass: Dealer Short Takes at CEDIA Expo
Pam Crane, Executive Vice President, Ken Crane’s Big Screen Headquarters, Hawthorne, Calif.:
“In terms of true new products, there was not a lot. We were basically looking for things with more margin than any video product! We did a lot of meet-and-greets with the video people, but spent our time looking into various furniture and flat-panel mounting options that we felt would differentiate us in our market – particularly some of the new swivel mounts, which are a bit more flexible. We also liked some of the newer furniture options in credenzas for flat panels. Not everyone wants to mount these sets on the wall.
“More of our focus here was to learn what we need to do to get further into custom integration, which we subcontract currently.
