Bar & Restaurant Expo Preview
Las Vegas Convention Center
At the Bar & Restaurant Expo, Black Box will showcase innovative AV solutions that enable "AV Everywhere," whether at a sports bar or brewery, quick-service or sit-down restaurant or cafe, or anything in between. The company's unique solutions can be tailored to any application and environment: digital signage, video walls, AV distribution, visualisation, customisation and management. Expo attendees will discover how these solutions can elevate their visualisation tactics while increasing efficiency, engagement and entertainment.
Black Box will feature the brand-new, second-generation model of the company's MCX AV-over-IP solution. MCX distributes and extends zero-latency 4K video and audio to an unlimited number of displays or a video wall over a 10 GbE infrastructure. As part of the SDVoE ecosystem, this robust video distribution system allows AV and data payloads to exist on the same IT network, which significantly reduces network management time and costs.
While enabling truly converged network AV, Black Box MCX ensures zero latency, uncompressed 4K video, high-quality audio, instantaneous switching and bandwidth efficiency. A wide selection of encoders and decoders provides enhanced system flexibility and high scalability, adding sources and displays on demand, while the enhanced management controller makes setting up and managing your system a breeze.
ControlBridge is a complete multisystem control panel that unifies control of KVM, AV and other devices in a single touch panel for convenient switching between sources, and allows users to change video settings, access video wall controllers and set room conditions. When the room or event requires a different setup, individual presets activate complex configuration at the touch of a button.
The Black Box iCompel digital signage solution makes it easy to craft a high-quality experience for employees, customers and neighbours. With its intuitive interface, users can quickly create, distribute and manage attention-getting digital signage; stream content from websites; and visualise events, wayfinding and emergency messaging. For everything from sharing menus and recipes to event promotion and emergency messaging, iCompel is a straightforward AV solution that empowers businesses to show off their brand personality, engage customers, increase efficiency and drive sales.
Radian Flex from Black Box is a great solution for any business looking to display high-quality content from multiple sources across multi-screen display walls in a variety of configurations. The flexible video wall solution makes it simple to add, move, resize and change content on the user interface, instantaneously triggering the same actions on the video wall/display. Because it does not require proprietary hardware, Radian Flex installs readily and saves users time, money and headaches.
"Now is a perfect time for restaurants and bars to level up the guest experience, and AV technologies are a huge enabler of the dynamic, highly visual experiences that today's consumers have come to expect in all kinds of hospitality settings. We look forward to showing expo attendees how Black Box products deliver convenient, intuitive access to the power of cutting-edge AV technology to drive more efficient operations and a more satisfying guest experience."
