Bosch Communications Systems and Bosch St Make Impact at Nsca 2007
Bosch Communications Systems was a proud President’s Club sponsor at NSCA 2007 (National Systems Contractors Association), the premiere tradeshow for systems integrators in the Americas. As the major sponsor of this year’s show, Bosch Communications Systems debuted with Bosch ST as the world leaders in complete systems solutions offering the convergence of professional sound, security and safety technologies. This was the first trade show to display an integrated complete sound & security system using Electro-Voice, Dynacord, Bosch and Telex Vega systems, and the booth was easily one of the busiest at the show.
This strong position places Bosch Communications Systems and Bosch ST at the forefront of a growing market for complete IP-based communications systems. Show attendees experienced first hand the synergy of the latest security, pro audio and IFAS products offered by Bosch Communications Systems and Bosch ST brands at the Intelligent Building Services Showcase, inaugurated by NSCA this year.
Bosch Communications Systems and Bosch Security Systems demonstrated to the Systems Integration industry the power of interconnected, intelligent, IP based systems as part of their PLatinum Sponsorship of the Connected Buildings™ conference. The conference focused on how current and emerging IP based technologies integrate into facility designs in order to create intelligent buildings, resulting in new revenue streams, improved health, safety, security, and workplace productivity, while reducing overall facility construction and lifecycle costs.
During the conference architects, engineers, and systems integrators learned how and why rapidly advancing IP based technologies are causing convergence of traditionally separate fire, security, communications, and building management systems. The conference successfully increased awareness that the systems construction industry is undergoing fundamental changes that will require changes in the approach to facility design and construction.
In addition to the educational conference sessions, an Intelligent Building Showcase Pavilion featured a variety of IP technology based products and systems for visitors to explore through interactive kiosks. Anchoring the Intelligent Building Showcase Pavilion was a functioning integrated control and monitoring system made up of select products from Bosch Communications Systems and Bosch Security Systems. A cross functional team of technical experts from both product groups worked to create a system that conveys the idea that various system elements can be combined together to form a unified system that can be controlled and monitored from multiple points across a facility, campus, or the world. To that effect, all audio and video data between the main Bosch Communications Systems booth and Showcase booth was connected via just one cable!
The synergistic application of products and technologies from Bosch Communications Systems and Bosch Security Systems is the first of its kind in terms of scope and function. The result is that once again we have far outpaced critical competitors and made the industry take note of our leading position.
As always, a major demo room presence was felt at the show, and a steady stream of visitors kept the large Electro-Voice and Dynacord demo rooms packed hour after hour. Demos focused on dynamic new products such as the Dynacord Variline range of loudspeakers and the new ZXA5 powered loudspeaker and C12.2 ceiling speaker from EV. Additional new products from EV included the REV wireless system and PolarChoice Boundary Satellite microphone. All in all, from input to output, this year’s NSCA showing was all about walking the walk above and beyond talking the talk, and our customers heard the message loud and clear, which explains why sales leads DOUBLED at this year’s show!
