JVC Mobile Entertainment to Exhibit at KnowledgeFest in Las Vegas

LONG BEACH, CA (02.14.22) – JVC Mobile Entertainment will be exhibiting at the upcoming KnolwedgeFest in Las Vegas, February 18th-20th, at which time it will be conducting trainings and providing demonstrations on 6 new products; the KW-M875BT digital multimedia receiver, KS-U70 Type-A to Type-D HDMI cable, KD-TD72BT single-DIN CD receiver, KD-T92MBS single-DIN marine/motorsports CD receiver, KS-DR2104DBT waterproof 4-channel compact digital Bluetooth amplifier, and the KS-DR2001D waterproof mono amplifier.

Picking up on the craze for short-body mounting depth receivers, the KW-M875BW is JVC’s first reduced mounting depth wireless-enabled multimedia receiver, coming in at 3-3/8” deep. It sports a 6.8” clear resistive touch panel display with wireless and wired support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless screen mirroring for Android, HD Radio, Advanced iDatalink Maestro RR support (with newly designed GUI’s), SiriusXM ready compatibility, 4 camera inputs, 3 sets of 5-volt RCA pre-outs, support for Hi-Res Audio via a wireless or wired connection, K2 sound technology, and gesture touch control.  Another first for JVC is its USB Type-C and HDMI Type-D rear inputs for faster charging and easier smartphone integration. The KS-U70 Type-A to Type-D HDMI cable is automotive-grade and designed to fit perfectly in the KW-M875BW’s recessed input and provide superior video playback from a compatible 3rd-party device.  Also equipped with JVC’s K2 sound technology, the recently released KD-T92MBS single-DIN marine/motorsports CD receiver and the KD-TD72BT single-DIN CD receiver will be on display in its booth as well.

To further complement its recent introduction of the waterproof/dustproof KS-DR2004D compact 4-channel amplifier, 2 additional amplifiers will be on display, including the KS-DR2104DBT waterproof/dustproof 4-channel Bluetooth amplifier and KS-DR2001D waterproof mono amplifier, providing the power and flexibility necessary for complete on and off-road system building. The KS-DR2104DBT produces a conservatively-rated 50 Watts x 4 RMS at 4-ohms or 75 Watts x 4 RMS at 2-ohms and includes a “glove-worthy” wired remote controller with rugged well-spaced buttons and a large volume knob/controller. This unique apt-X -equipped Bluetooth amplifier can be your audio source solution for anything from a classic car where altering the factory receiver isn’t an option, to a UTV without a receiver provision. To complete the system, simply add in the KS-DR2001D with its included remote level controller and 300 Watts of RMS power to drive a subwoofer.

 “As we head full force into 2022, we are excited to bring exciting new product technologies and solutions to our customers,” said Ron Trout, Director of JVC Mobile Entertainment Sales. “KnowledgeFest provides us with the much-needed platform to ensure that our dealers are fully-equipped with the JVC product knowledge necessary to offer customers the best sales and vehicle installation experience.”

The Team Nutz Crew Traveled to KnowledgeFest in Indy

PITTSBURGH, PA (10.18.2021) – The Team Nutz crew made the 360 mile trip from Pittsburg to Indianapolis late Thursday, October 7th, to attend KFest Indy that ran Friday through Sunday, October 8th-10th.

The Team Nutz SUV and the Vince Murray’s Jeep Gladiator stopped for a break Thursday night between Pittsburgh and Indianapolis.
One last late night stop between Pittsburgh and Indy.

Team Nutz leader Ed Nuttall related, “We looked at this is a great opportunity to attend a number of training sessions by National Trainers, see products from a number major brands on the event floor with their reps and network with other members of the 12volt industry. Staff members from our sales and installation made the trip. Staff members included Ben Bjerke, Brandon Star, Colleen Gregory and Mike Pent.”

Early Saturday morning it was time to check in and get ready for the day.
 The Team Nutz crew at the Race Sport Lighting booth listening to a presentation from Steve Jergensen.

In addition, Vince Murray was with crew. “Vince is a friend and customer plus his Jeep Gladiator Sport S was displayed in the Metra booth. Team Nutz completed the installation on Vince’s Gladiator with an extensive selection of Heise lighting and Metra products” Nuttall stated.

Continuing, “We arrived in Indy after midnight and caught a few hours of sleep before getting all done with event registration Friday morning. After getting our badges we split into groups and attended every training session through the day. As soon as the show floor opened we made the rounds to check out the booths of vendors we work with in our store. Seeing Vince’s demo vehicle in the Metra booth with Jason Anderson was terrific” Nuttall added.

Team Nutz Ed Nuttall (R) and Rusty North-End Result. “It’s great to see the commitment Team Nutz made to attend KFest as a group and to grow their business” North stated.
The Team Nutz crew recapped KF Day 1 and enjoyed group dinner.

Further Nuttall offered “Spending time in the Race Sport Lighting booth to see new products with Steve Jergensen and Ignacio Ayala was time well spent as the lighting category is certainly growing. Rusty North, End Result, is our rep and it was good to make plans for growth with him.”

During a nice dinner Friday night the crew discussed the days activities and then rested up to get ready for Saturday.

Team Nutz believes in getting it done. Nuttall has already applied for and received his first certification, signed by Kris Bulla, from MECP that began during KFest Indy.

On Saturday the crew again split up to attend every training session on the schedule. They spent time in the Sony booth to check out the new demo car and the new head unit that debuted at KFest. In addition they spent time with Kris Bulla in the MECP booth to check out a new program MECP has introduced.

Vince Murray (L) and Jason Alexander in the Metra booth with Vince’s Jeep Gladiator Sport S loaded with Heise Lighting and Metra gear on the KFest floor.

“I was very impressed with the new MECP package and purchased an application for our entire staff of 12 people. As Saturday wound down we made the decision to head back to Pittsburgh since we had already attended all of the trainings that were on the Sunday schedule. Attending KFest Indy was overall a positive experience for Team Nutz as we met our objectives,” Nuttall concluded.

KnowledgeFest Dallas Rescheduled to December 10-12

NORTH ANDOVER, MA (08.20.2021) – Despite a strong number of early registrations, the Mobile Electronics Association (MEA) announced today that it is rescheduling its largest KnowledgeFest event in Dallas from August 27–29 to later in the year on December 10–12. The reason for rescheduling is due to the spike in new COVID-19 cases in the Dallas County area along with several manufacturer cancellations, mostly due to global travel bans.

“Although the protocols where in place to assure a safe event, we respect the decision that many manufacturers regretfully made to not attend”, said Chris Cook, MEA President. MEA recently surveyed registered attendees and found that three (3) out of four (4) retailers still planned on attending the event in Dallas, and the top three reasons for attending were Education Workshops, Manufacturer Training, and the Exhibit Show Floor. “What is most important is to have a successful event for all that attend” stated Cook.

The industry is looking forward to the next KnowledgeFest event in Indianapolis on October 8–10 where attendance has grown over the last five events.

Registration is open at KnowledgeFest.com for the next three events. Attendees will not have to register again for Dallas in December and will be contacted for confirmation before the event.
