NEW YORK, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VELOCITY World Media®, the largest global, private experiential television network, is producing a world-premier High Performance Audio Video Showcase to test the limits of sight and sound live and in high-definition on November 12, 2013 exclusively at clubs in the ClubCorp family from coast to coast.
"This first-of-its-kind event is a unique opportunity for exhibitors to showcase the world's finest audio, video and lifestyle products for hard-to-reach audiences in the comfort of their own private clubs nationwide," said Philip Elias, president and CEO of VELOCITY World Media. "One of the most unique aspects of this showcase is that the evening's entertainment – presented live by the historic Harlem Stage – will be seen and heard on the equipment being showcased. It's the ideal opportunity for the ideal audience to experience a new generation of high-performance home entertainment technology."
The nationwide High Performance Audio Video Showcase will create a unique setting for national and regional exhibitors to interact one-on-one with an engaged, affluent audience in multiple markets simultaneously.

"We're excited to work alongside VELOCITY World Media to give our talented artists another platform to touch as many people as possible."
