Despite the hurricane, ITC had another successful show at IBEX this year. 2016 marked the first time in several years that ITC introduced a new booth concept. We have used the same concept for many years and decided that the design was looking a bit tired and dated. Our customers know us and they know our booth so we knew we needed to make a big impact with the new design. To do this we incorporated pieces and parts of an actual pontoon. This new design received a lot of complements and made the perfect backdrop for our latest VersiColor RGB products.
Some of the new products featured included the Prominence docking light, VersiColor flexible RGB lighting and the VersiColor four zone controller. The Prominence light features both a white spotlight and decorative RGB trim ring. The flexible lighting while not a new product, was shown in a new application under the pontoon rails. The four-zone controller was used to tie all the RGB products together. Up to four zones can be wired and modified by the controller. Zones can be turned on or off via the toggle switches on the helm and will maintain the same color as other zones even if they are turned off.
All in all, there was high interest level in the VersiColor RGB products and it was good to see that most manufacturers are looking to incorporate this technology into their designs. We are excited about the customization aspect that RGB brings and are looking forward to influencing how lighting is used in the marine industry.
