Adherence to Digital Cinema Initiative specifications enables Quantum’s LED Video Wall to access exclusive content from the Bel Air Circuit.
Denver, Colorado (September 8, 2023) — From its inception, the XDR3 LED Video Wall from Quantum Media Systems was designed and engineered exclusively for high-end home cinemas. Technologies incorporated into the LED Video Wall enable it to optimize the types of content typically consumed in residential settings. Now, Quantum adds another compelling content choice—first-run movies available via the exclusive movie distribution service, the Bel Air Circuit.
Streaming of high-res digital content from the Bel Air Circuit is achieved through Quantum’s recent compliance with system requirements and specifications established by the Digital Cinema Initiative. DCI support and Bel Air Circuit integration further differentiate the XDR3 LED Video Wall from other large-format displays on the market, providing systems integrators yet another selling feature for their high-end clientele.
The XDR3 LED Video Wall enhances viewing enjoyment of exclusive Bel Air Circuit movies and other content through brightness up to 1000 nits, immersive image display technology with Fine-Pitch LED and high-performance image processing to produce a full, vibrant color spectrum and High Dynamic Range (HDR).
The XDR3 LED Video Wall requires just four inches of total build-out depth, which makes it look like a natural extension of the wall—an artistic expression rather than a random piece of technology. The low profile of the XDR3 LED Video Wall also saves space. Homeowners enjoy a big screen viewing experience without a large, loud video projector infringing on the room design for comfort of the audience. This space-saving attribute also enables greater freedom with seating arrangements.

CEDIA Expo attendees can see all the key differentiating features of the XDR3 LED Video Wall from Quantum Media Systems at an appointment-only demonstration in Room #207.

Leon’s Edge Media Frame brings high-end designer style and uncompromising audio to any space at CEDIA Expo 2023.
[Ann Arbor, MI] – September 5, 2023 – Just as every picture deserves a frame, every TV deserves an Edge Frame from Leon. Unsightly plastic framing, visible cables, and bulky mounting equipment can lead to a wall-mounted TV that detracts from the style of a space. Leon’s popular Edge line of handcrafted hardwood frames are a simple and modern way to upgrade any TV for the design-conscious client—elevating the look of any and every display.
Available for both standalone TVs and TV-soundbar setups, Edge Frames are easy to install and built to fit the exact dimensions of any retrofit or new TV across both new builds and existing setup. Edge’s magnetic frame is easily removed and returned for service or maintenance, creating a seamless, built-in-look without the added cost and construction. Every Edge is handcrafted in the USA and available in a variety of Leon standard finishes, including hardwoods, with additional options for custom paint matching or designer grille fabrics.
“Our Edge series is one of our most popular solutions, and a testament to Leon’s commitment to simple, stylish ways of integrating technology with design” says Leon Speakers founder and president Noah Kaplan. “We believe that, as our technology continues to evolve, our approach to design must evolve alongside it. The Edge series is one of the easiest ways to intentionally bring an existing television into the look and feel of the space around it.”

At KMB Communications, we not only strive to serve our clients platters full of published stories, articles, quotable commentary, and other delectable media-related opportunities, but we also endeavor to identify the best spots to eat, drink, and enjoy time with peers during tradeshows. Why? Because, in our mind, what happens at the show is as important as what happens afterward at dinner, over drinks, during breakfast meetings, or chance encounters. That’s when conversations unfold, business is built, and friendships are often made. Over the years we’ve been honored to be at the table, to share the stories of our industry, and bring some levity to things while we’re at it.
Our Tradeshow Foodie Blogs are here for you, sourced from your peers, and should provide some great options. But we’re always looking for more, so please share your faves and send pics, too. CEDIA Expo will be in Denver for a long time, and we’ll all need new spots to try!
Here are this year’s hotspots to try while in Denver, CO for CEDIA Expo.
Barrie McCorkle, Director of Supplier Programs, D-Tools Inc.
If you know Barrie, you know he’s one of our industry’s most relied-upon providers of food recommendations and reviews. Here’s his rundown on Denver hotspots.
Cholon (https://www.cholon.com/downtown/):World Famous Soup Dumplings. Literally. There was a show done on Travel or Discovery that showed how they make them. The dumplings are made with French onion soup and gruyere cheese inside. It’s an amazing flavor explosion in your mouth. There is not a single thing on the menu that isn’t fantastic.
Café Brazil (https://cafebrazildenver.com/): No, it’s not skewered meat, it’s authentic Brazilian with a Rum bar). OMG. Just go. On of my Top 10 restaurants anywhere I’ve ever been.
“Taking the naïve to the Fort is excellent. Order the Rocky Mountain Oysters but don’t tell your guests what it really is.
It’s a bit disappointing they don’t seem to have Rattlesnake strips in Cocktail Sauce but offers a great atmosphere. Don’t leave without more than one desert (now you know why I love this guy!).
If you want to do the Buckhorn, good idea to make those reservations ASAP. The Buckhorn has the rattlesnake appetizer to join in with the Alligator and RMO. The Hot Dutch Apple pie A la mode with cinnamon rum sauce … don’t tell anyone about it or they’ll run out. Followed by Sorbet.”
Vijita U.G., Director of Customer Experience, NuTech Group, and founder of #AVFoodies
Vijita visited Water Grill on Monday here’s her *very recent* foodie review!
“Water Grill is originally from Los Angeles and has a Denver location off Market and 17th Street. It is a fantastic dining experience for any seafood lover of crab, fish, clams, oysters, shrimp, and more. The staff is friendly and attentive with a great knowledge of the menu. Also, a bonus is how easy it is to make a reservation with Open Table.
My starter was a sourdough bread with flaky sea salt butter. I can’t say no to a well-buttered roll and I paired two appetizers to create a main course and finished with a dessert.
New England Clam chowder with applewood smoked bacon – A Signature dish that everyone should try once.
Wild Spanish octopus | charcoal grilled with fingerling potatoes, niçoise olives, roasted tomatoes, lemon and olive oil – Perfect dish for summer flavors.
Peanut butter and salted caramel ice cream made in house – A sweet treat to finish off the night.
Overall, it was worth it to fully indulge in the seafood offerings and treat myself to a quiet evening before the start of CEDIA.
Runner-up: Breakfast at Syrup Downtown off Curtis and 18th. The army of people waiting to be seated let you know that this was a great spot featuring dishes like The Kitchen Sink, Crack Bacon, and Beignets. The only con is no reservations, it is first come, first serve.
I went with a basic “Eggs Your Way” with two eggs any style, choice of meat, choice of bread, and smashed tater tots. The smashed tater tots stood out as unique since it is usually hash browns served for breakfast. Enjoy a cup of coffee or upgrade to a vanilla latte if you prefer something more out of your caffeinated beverage. If you fancy a breakfast spot off the beaten path, then this is your place.”
Karen Mitchell, writer, Residential Systems magazine, and Denver local
“For drinks and small plates, and dinner, go to the Cooper Lounge on the upper floor at Union Station. You absolutely need reservations. Very fun. Highly recommend the negronis and shrimp cocktails!”
