Annual spo-comm Christmas party 2019

An elk, some fir-branches and a bonfire on a video wall - that possibly means it's time for the Christmas party at spo-comm! With good food and one or other beer we celebrated the year 2019 together.

While enjoying the virtual bonfire, we listened to Michael Sporrer, our CEO, who reviewed the year 2019 with a little speech and rewarded all employees with a gift. Then the dinner was served. Just like in the last few years, we had some delicacies from perls:  From celery cream soup with cinnamon croutons and beef salad as the first course, over to duck, salmon and chestnuts as the main course up to cookie spiced tiramisu and gingerbread mousse as the highlight. There was something for every meat lover and veggie freak! :)

The evening was topped off with laughter and many, many conversations. Here are some impressions:

19 Dec 2019 Array ( [id] => 485 [title] => Ready for a new decade - this was 2019 at spo-comm [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => As in 2018, this year we asked the spo-comm management, CEO Michael Sporrer and CMO Bernd Moosmüller, again for an interview, to look back at 2019 and to give a little forecast for 2020. [description] =>

spo-comm: Hello and thank you for taking your time. Please tell us, how was 2019 for you?

Michael Sporrer: Pleasing, yes and also quite successful. Our business figures are impressive. We gained exciting customers and deepened existing relationships. We owe this not least to our employees. The whole team did a really great job.

spo-comm: Speaking of the team ... we have grown again!
Michael Sporrer: Exactly. Two new trainees, Fabian and Felix, have started working in our production and service department in September. It has already been shown that those two are pretty capable. Our marketing has also grown and was able to perform several large projects ... But maybe Bernd would prefer to tell that himself.

Bernd Moosmüller: (laughs) With pleasure. After exhibiting at the ISE in Amsterdam in February, we held an event at the spo-comm headquarters for the first time in summer. As part of the Nürnberg Digital Festival, we invited to hear lectures on artificial intelligence and Nvidia CUDA. You shouldn't praise yourself, but we, or rather, our marketing department, did a really good job in organizing the event. The feedback from the participants was also very positive. That has really whetted our appetite.

spo-comm: It was definitely a great event. Are there already concrete plans for further events?

Bernd Moosmüller: I have a lot of ideas. Let's see what we can do about it. By all means, we will attend the ISE in February.
spo-comm: Unfortunately, this takes place in Amsterdam for the last time and then moves to Barcelona. What can we expect to be shown on our stand?

Michael Sporrer: We will present two great innovations with us. For one thing, the successor to our WINDBOX 2 series is already in the starting blocks. Secondly, there will finally be a new model for ultra-high-performance, high-end graphics. Anyone who knows our products can certainly imagine what it is. Starts with "K" ...

spo-comm: ... and ends with "UMO", right? I heard something about Nvidia Turing?

Michael Sporrer: (laughs) You're not entirely wrong. More details will be released at the beginning of 2020. We are all very excited about it!

spo-comm: Are there any other new products planned for next year?

Michael Sporrer: Yes, we are planning to add panel PCs to our product range again. During our visit to Taiwan in October, we already spoke to various existing and potential partners.

Bernd Moosmüller: Of course it's not that easy. As with all of our products, in the end we want to have a PC that is configurable and can be individually tailored to the applications and needs of our customers.

Michael Sporrer: But we are on the right track and hopefully will be able to present something new soon.

spo-comm: And what else can we look forward to in 2020?

Michael Sporrer: In the background people are busy working on other topics. We are currently renewing our entire internal IT infrastructure. In addition to faster servers, this also includes switching to cloud-based solutions. This enables our employees to work more and more independently and flexibly. This is essential, especially for home office and business trips.

Bernd Moosmüller: And then there's the big topic “new website”. We have been developing, testing and designing for months. We hope to be able to go live with our new web shop at the beginning of next year. And we can not only look forward to a modern and above all responsive design. There will also be some new features that will make our customers' lives a lot easier.

spo-comm: We are already very excited!

Ready for a new decade - this was 2019 at spo-comm

As in 2018, this year we asked the spo-comm management, CEO Michael Sporrer and CMO Bernd Moosmüller, again for an interview, to look back at 2019 and to give a little forecast for 2020.
13 Feb 2019 Array ( [id] => 379 [title] => spo-comm at the ISE 2019: We say Thank you! [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => The Integrated Systems 2019 is over already and our team – visibly satisfied with the result – is back home in Nuremberg. We look back on a successful week in Amsterdam. [description] =>

"It was a great week! Not only have we been able to make many new contacts, we have also met many of our customers. They are all really satisfied with our products", raves our key account manager Martin Wiesneth, who represented spo-comm together with his colleague Mustafa Ergin at the ISE 2019. Our CEO Michael Sporrer, our CMO Bernd Moosmüller as well as our marketing trainee Chiara Murana were also in Amsterdam for a few days. "It was fun to get a taste of a big international fair like the ISE," says Chiara. "I also had the opportunity to take a look around and it’s amazing what the digital signage industry nowadays has to offer."

Advertima & SmartPixels

On our stand we also presented two exciting and innovative solutions in addition to our Mini-PCs. Our customer Advertima from Switzerland presented his AI, which recognizes people with visual sensors and thus creates customer profiles. Therefore it is supported by our KUMO IV. Yet another real magnet for visitors was the solution of our French customer SmartPixels, with which you can design your own shoe – with our NANO H110, that is equipped with a specific Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, a touchpad and a beamer, that projects the design in real time and within millimetres on a white shoe.

Ultra compact player convinced the visitors

"Our BOX N4100 was definitely a winner," says key account manager Mustafa Ergin and even looks a bit surprised, "that means for us, that cheap little players are in high demand. But the quite massive RUGGED GTX1050 also impressed many visitors. I mean, seven times 4K are really awesome." Our KUMO IV also caught the eye. This shows us once again that we have created something extraordinary with this series of extremely powerful DS players.

We say Thank you!

The whole spo-comm thanks for the numerous new contacts, the customers, who visited our booth, the many conversations, the positive feedback and a lot new input. "After a year’s break, we are glad to have exhibited at the ISE again," said CEO Michael Sporrer, "and by the way, the stand for next year is already booked!"
