It is a great environment with lots of enthusiasm for the future of AV, electronics and the U.S. economy in general. I am certainly glad I went. In my travels I saw only a fraction of what was available yet I was able to catch a few very notable items that you might want to consider for future or current upgrades. Here they are in no specific order: Kalidescape Video Server ($27,000 and up) – Before you faint over the price this video server allows well heeled movie buffs to load over 1 terabyte of hard drive space (and infinitely ...
