The Minus by APURE is a breakthrough in conception, technology and design and the most powerful small LED light in the world. An architectural lighting marvel which requires less than 1″ (25mm) of ceiling recess and an aperture of less than 1/2″ (10mm)…smaller than a dime. Minus produces a discrete lighting effect, virtually glare free and capable of producing an output of over 1000 lumens from source. But it is the daring innovation – the desire to save overhead space – that is the genius of Minus.

The DaVinci Group (TDG) invents new product category with $1,000 Skybar LCR in-ceiling soundbars and satellite speakers for home theater.
Look, up in the sky (or in this case, the ceiling)… it’s a bird, it’s a plane, no, it’s a… soundbar? Jeff Francisco, president and CEO of The DaVinci Group, Inc. (TDG) might not be Superman, but he can lay claim to perhaps being one of the only exhibitors at CEDIA 2017 who invented an entirely new product category: the in-ceiling soundbar. Indeed, the company showed its new Skybar LCR architectural audio system that includes an in-ceiling soundbar, along with satellite speakers.
“TDG’s Skybar System is the result of deep collaboration with TDG dealers, who told us they needed a solution where the aesthetics of the installation require a lower impact design rather than multiple individual component speakers,” says Francisco. “With our new Skybar solution, integrators can fulfill their clients’ request and do so without sacrificing sound quality for a tremendous seven-channel home theater performance out of just three diminutive in-ceiling or in-wall boxes.”

GoVision sprints into the new year working some of the largest events in the world!
Inauguration Crowds Witness History on GoVision Screens: Let’s not worry how many were actually there … What’s important is that for the fourth consecutive time, GoVision was tasked with providing the massive LED screens for a solemn and historic ceremony celebrating the peaceful transition of power.
When Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on Jan. 20, he was flanked by two 19’ x 33’ G16 mobile LED screens positioned on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Nine additional mobile and modular screens were set-up in strategic locations around the Capitol to enable the crowds to enjoy a larger-than-life view of the ceremony.
GoVision Scores At Super Bowl LI: The Patriots weren’t the only ones to leave Houston with a smile. Team GoVision also enjoyed a winning Super Bowl Weekend, with all 22 of their mobile units – sporting their newly retrofitted 10mm screens – busy at events across the city.
GoVision Raises the NYE Star for Chi-Town: For the second consecutive year, GoVision helped ring in the New Year in Chicago. The centerpiece of the downtown “Chi-Town Rising” event was a giant Rising Star constructed from LED panels that – rather than dropping like the ball in Times Square – rose 360 feet in the air during the final countdown.
Parades, Pucks and Pigskin: On Jan. 2, GoVision helped the nation celebrate the New Year at the granddaddy of them all, The Rose Parade. Our G6 LED screen, located in the Grandstand area, enabled the massive on-site crowd and television viewers from around the globe to take in the excitement of this breathtaking, internationally acclaimed procession of fanfare and flowers.
Las Vegas Open House Kicks Off New Year: GoVision opened a new office and equipment facility in Las Vegas last July, headed by Account Executive Joe Danczak. The facility – which houses a substantial amount of our state-of-the-art modular and mobile LED inventory, as well as both Sales and Technical/Operations staff – is helping us to better serve GoVision’s clients in the western half of the country.

Designing system configurations for outdoor landscape audio systems has always been a bit of a challenge. Many integrators design outdoor systems utilizing a “stereo” or two-channel configuration. However, engineers at TDG have developed technology that allows for an all-new system topology that provides for what we call the Infinite Sweet Spot.
But before we get into just how the Infinite Sweet Spot works, let’s first look at the extra challenges that exist when designing systems for outdoor entertainment…

If you’re going to install new audio and video equipment at Muscle Shoals Sound it better sound good.
It better look good, too.
Actually, it better look old.
Last year, Muscle Shoals Sound, the famous Sheffield studio where artists including the Rolling Stones, Paul Simon and Staple Singers cut classic tracks, underwent renovations to restore the look to its ’70s prime.
When Muscle Shoals Sound was reopened for tours this January, Muscle Shoals Music Foundation director Bonnie Bak felt adding some A/V would enhance the experience for visitors. And help tell the story of Muscle Shoals Sound. And of the iconic studio musicians who founded it, the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, better known now as The Swampers, thanks to a shout-out in the Lynyrd Skynyrd song “Sweet Home Alabama.”
