After a jam-packed year, it’s hard to believe that 2019 is finally drawing to a close. We feel so lucky to have had such a successful year in business and are so excited to share our top partnerships, acknowledgments, and event highlights from this past year!
In February, we proudly announced a partnership with Minor League Baseball (MiLB™) as the “Official Digital Display Partner of MiLB.” Our concourse LCD displays, video boards, and ribbon boards have been incorporated into numerous MiLB locations, increasing engagement with fans and enhancing the overall ballpark experience.
As one of the leading innovative companies in AV technology, we are so excited to give select MiLB clubs the opportunity to participate in a digital smart screen network with our technology in over 40 MiLB parks by Opening Day 2020.

New Peerless-AV Website & BIMsmith Partnership
Another one of our top highlights of 2019 includes our revamped website, featuring a sleek, high-profile design that embodies the Peerless-AV brand and provides easy-to-use features for all of our clients.
This new design makes for even easier navigation and provides new interactive features, like our LED Mount Configurator, KioskBuilder, and Modular Configurator upgrades. These tools allow users to build their own customized mount, kiosk, or modular series configurations or search for Peerless-AV products with a configuration ID.
After teaming up with engineers and architects to discover the best way to incorporate architecture data and interactive models, we introduced our new partnership with BIMsmith in September. Our award-winning, innovative audio and video solutions and accessories are now developed with BIMsmith®, a free cloud platform with tools for discovering and building product data.
BIMsmith allows architects and building professionals to incorporate realistic models of our products into digital designs that are beneficial for architects when designing a building. Not only does this partnership provide an elevated experience in learning about our designs, but it also yields a simplified process of design and communication between architects and manufacturers.
We are so pleased to provide another platform for thousands of building professionals to learn how our solutions can be incorporated into unique designs and are so thrilled to participate in continuous innovation.

Out & About
In a world of technology and a growing influx of screen time, we value face-to-face events as they are key opportunities to demonstrate new technologies and communicate about the services we provide. We had the privilege of attending several events in 2019 to showcase our products, learn from professionals in the industry, and educate others about the innovation and technology that Peerless-AV continuously provides. Some of this year’s highlights include:
ISE 2019 – In February, at the largest AV and systems integration show in the world, Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), we hosted a remarkable booth featuring new Peerless-AV products including the debut of our Xtreme™ High Bright Outdoor Displays, along with a range of fully integrated indoor and outdoor kiosks. In presenting our Xtreme™ High Bright Outdoor Displays, we demonstrated the product’s resilience, all-weather capabilities and crisp picture and color accuracy. This product was also named an InAVation Awards winner in the “Technology for Digital Signage” category! In our booth, we also presented our Smart City Kiosk, with a functional and durable design, as well as our wayfinding kiosks, including the All-in-One Kiosk Powered by BrightSign® and the Universal Indoor Portrait Kiosk.
DSE 2019 – Peerless-AV took the road again to attend the 2019 Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, NV in March, serving as a Presenting Sponsor and showcasing a wide range of AV solutions. Within our booth we presented the Smart City Kiosks, All-in-One Kiosk Powered by BrightSign®, and Outdoor Digital Menu Boards, in addition to our LED Mount Configurator along with the SmartMount® LED Video Wall Mounting System. This three-day long expo allowed us and other attendees to learn more about innovation within the technology industry and to interact with the unique products at each booth. Our very own VP of Sales, Americas and APAC, Brian McClimans, also had the opportunity to discuss “What’s Next in Displays” and speak about the future developments in display technologies.
InfoComm 2019 – In June, we attended InfoComm in Orlando, FL where we attended numerous events with our many media partners, including Sound & Communications, Commercial Integrator, and AV Nation. Peerless-AV also won the Best in Show award, gaining recognition by editorial staff for our Heavy Duty Projector Mount and celebrating ProjectorCentral’s 20th year as “The World’s Largest Projector Resource™”.
Thanks to all who visited us at each of these events! We were so fortunate to have been in attendance amongst various businesses around the globe, all interested in innovation and revolutionizing the technology industry.
We look forward to all that 2020 holds!
