The Source: Capitol Presents New Technologies
Tepid 3D and connected TV sales have disappointed dealers, but new approaches to home networking might spur unexpected growth.
Those were among the points of consensus at the Capitol Learning Institute and Expo, which distributor Capitol recently hoted in Chaska, Minn. The event returned to Minnesota for the first time since 2008, after going on the road the previous two years.
The show featured 70 classes from 53 vendors over two days, while drawing 140 attendees. The classes included product rundowns from vendors, including Toshiba, Monster and Denon, and separate courses from Panasonic on consumer products and business video-conferencing. Atlas Sound offered a class on "Sound Masking: Unmasked." Niles Audio offered a "Multizone Installation Course" and Universal Remote Control taught a course on "Color Remote Programming."
