Mike Blackman

fter the great success of ISE 2016 — the first four day show in the exhibition’s fourteen year lifespan — we are aware that by raising the benchmark, we set ourselves a hard act to follow. I’m confident that we have made even bigger strides in bringing you ISE 2017. This edition of magazine will help you to plan your time at the show and to discover the various options on travel, events, training and conferences all taking part in and around the world’s largest AV and systems integration exhibition. As the show has continued to grow so have we! ISE 2017 will see over 130 companies making their debut. This makes for a vibrant show floor and yet another reason for long term attendees and new ones to make the journey to Amsterdam. In total, ISE 2017 will feature over 1,100 exhibitors who will showcase the world’s leading brands, products and technologies, all under one roof in an environment that promotes discussion, learning and networking. As well as providing a ‘shop window’ to the latest in AV technology, ISE 2017 will present attendees with numerous options for personal development and learning away from the show floor. Leading trade associations CEDIA and InfoComm International are providing a comprehensive offering of on-site training programmes that range from short 20-minute ‘Flashtrack’ sessions to full day conferences and workshops. Full details can be found on their websites. Plus, there will be over 180 free-to-attend sessions taking place in the five ISE Show Floor Theatres. Joining the new CEDIA Smart Building Solutions Theatre sponsored by KNX (Hall 9), are the InfoComm International Commercial Solutions Theatre (Hall 8) sponsored by Crestron, the ISE Audio Solutions

Theatre (Hall 7), the CEDIA Residential Solutions Theatre (Hall 5) and the InfoComm International Unified Communications Theatre sponsored by Crestron (Hall 11). The addition of the extra show day last year gave us the opportunity to introduce a new feature — the Closing Keynote speech. Taking place on the morning of the last day of the show, Daniel Lamarre, the President and CEO of the world’s largest theatrical production company Cirque du Soleil, will explain how creativity is one of the primary driving forces for successful commerce. Make sure you get the chance to hear from one of the world’s leading business development experts. Regular attendees to ISE will notice some changes around the RAI exhibition centre. The addition of the new Hall 9 has allowed us to dedicate floor space to exhibitors dedicated to providing Smart Building technology and solutions. It will also feature the launch of a new CEDIA Smart Building Solutions Theatre sponsored by KNX. A new Pavilion has also been erected at the Congress Square. It connects with the Europa Foyer, Diamond Lounge and Auditorium. This combined area is now known as Hall 14. In total ISE 2017 is over 3,000 square metres larger than the 2016 edition. For the first time, Hall 13 will showcase another area of growing importance for ISE attendees — Education Technology. This area will bring together manufacturers and service suppliers serving this vibrant market sector. It all makes for an exciting four days in February! I look forward to seeing you at ISE 2017.

THE SHOW

ISE 2017

NAVIGATING THE SHOW The world’s largest AV and systems integration trade show will be bigger than ever in 2017! Make sure you carefully plan your visit to ensure that you make the most of your time at the event.

Arriving at the RAI Amsterdam

Once you get to the RAI Amsterdam, there are four main entrances, which you can enter by showing your ISE 2017 badge. These are entrances C, F, K and L. If you are registering onsite, make your way to one of the desks where staff will process your registration and issue your badge.

Make sure you pick up your ISE 2017 bag, Official Show Guide and foldout floor plan so that you’re fully equipped to find your way around.

RAI Amsterdam Halls Getting to the RAI Amsterdam

Getting to the RAI Amsterdam, whether you’re travelling from your hotel, the airport or train station, is straightforward. ISE offers a shuttle bus service that links the exhibition centre with Schiphol Airport and most hotels in the city. The full shuttle bus schedule can be viewed on the ISE website. Amsterdam’s Metro system

is a cost-effective and efficient way of getting around. Please check online for service details. Demand for taxis will be high and so will fares in comparison to the other options, therefore we recommend using the shuttle bus or public transport instead. If you are driving to the RAI, onsite parking is available.

For 2017 there are some changes to the RAI Amsterdam hall layout. There are now 14 halls, including two new ones. Halls making their debut are Hall 9 and Hall 14, the latter being a temporary structure built on the Congress Square. The Halls have also been reclassified to accommodate the expansion. These are as follows.

These are: ●● Digital Signage ●● Smart Building ●● Education Technology ●● Discovery Zone ●● Residential Solutions ●● Unified Communications ●● Audio The ISE 2017 floor plan will help you to find your way and locate key exhibitors.

ISE 2017 ADDS FOCUS ON EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY AND SMART BUILDING

Register for VIP treatment at ISE 2017

n SEE FLOORPLAN: HALL 13, EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY

J

ust one of the many attractions of ISE is that, every year, there’s something new to look forward to as the organisers seek to reflect changes in the AV market as well as its growth. This year, for example, sees more than 3,000 additional square metres of floor space to accommodate the growing number of exhibitors: ISE 2017 will welcome some 135 first-timers. No less important, though, is the addition of two new halls — and two new technology focus areas. A new pavilion will be built, which will be known as Hall 14, and will provide an extra 1,500 square metres of stand space. Hall 9 is also new, and will be home to exhibitors addressing the burgeoning market for smart buildings — an ISE first. The Hall will feature, for the first time, the CEDIA Smart Building Solutions Theatre sponsored by KNX. Meanwhile, Hall 12 becomes Hall 13 and, in another first, will be dedicated to education technology. For watchers of the AV market, the decision to devote specific halls to these markets will probably come as no surprise. In the case of smart buildings, for example, researcher MarketsandMarkets says worldwide sales are expected to grow from just under $US6 billion in 2016 to close to $US25 billion by 2021. What’s driving that growth? Three things. First is the growing focus on conserving energy as businesses and consumers look to reduce their environmental footprint — and

save money. Second is the advent of consumer-installable home automation devices, raising awareness of what’s possible. Third is the growing functionality, ease of installation/operation and affordability of the underlying technologies. And if $US25 billion seems like a significant opportunity — it turns out that the global opportunity in education technology is around ten times the size, with events company EdTechXGlobal forecasting that it will grow at 17%/year and become worth a staggering US$252 billion by 2020. The factors here include the rapid growth in the worldwide student population: according to some estimates, there will be 2.7 billion by 2035. There is also pressure to improve educational outcomes by engaging those students using technologies that are familiar to them. And, like the smart buildings market, those technologies are becoming both more functional and more affordable. For ISE 2017 visitors working in smart buildings or education, there’s plenty to be excited about.

Attendees at ISE 2017 can now sign up for one of three VIP attendee packages. The new initiative offers Platinum, Gold or Silver options and is designed to make your ISE experience as productive as possible. As a Platinum VIP and Golden VIP at ISE 2017, you will be met on arrival from the airplane at Schiphol Amsterdam. You will have access to the VIP Lounge at Schiphol while your luggage will be picked up for you before you are taken to your taxi that will take you to the RAI Amsterdam. At the RAI there will be a hostess waiting for you at the VIP Entrance who will provide you with your VIP Badge and direct you towards the VIP Lounge. In the VIP Lounge you can grab a cup of tea or coffee before you enter the show floor at your leisure. The VIP Lounge will be available to you during the entire duration of the show. Here you can relax, use the free Wi-Fi, have a drink or charge your electronic devices. There will be a hostess available for you to assist you with booking a taxi, to suggest and reserve restaurants or to provide you with directions and information about Amsterdam. The hostess will also take care of your taxi reservation to return to Schiphol airport at the end of your visit to ISE 2017.

The M2D Networking Event, sponsored by Avenview, will take place at the Café Amsterdam, Hall 14 from 15:00 on the final day of the show — Friday 10 February. After three days of doing business and striking deals the M2D Networking Event will offer an ideal opportunity for manufacturers and distributors to bring their hard work to fruition in a convivial atmosphere geared to facilitate networking and contact building. M2D is provided by ISE as an annual service for exhibitors and attendees. Fixed screen displays situated in the Business Lounge; Entrance K and the Ruby Lounge near the Forum will display details of manufacturers looking for new and additional distributors of their products and services. The M2D event will welcome manufacturers looking for new distributors and distributors looking for new product lines to add to their range.

Manufacturers looking to expand into new territories or adapt their approach to an existing market will have the opportunity to communicate their needs and connect with potential distributors.

At ISE 2016, 176 manufacturers registered with the M2D programme, posting 614 requests for distributors. Manufacturers can update their

entry on the M2D portal right up to the day before the show opens. Best of all, this service is free to all ISE exhibitors.

The stickers can also be used to get a complimentary drink. The reception will take place on Friday, 10 February, 15:00 — Café Amsterdam

FIRST EVER STAND DESIGN AWARDS AT ISE

I

f you’ve ever been at ISE — or any major trade show, for that matter — before it opens, you’ll have been amazed at the transformation that takes place. From a building site of forklift trucks, pallets, equipment cases and what appears utter chaos, the show floor miraculously becomes not only tidy and clean, but a fantastic testament to imagination and creativity. This year, for the first time, those efforts will be recognised with the ISE 2017 Stand Design Awards, independently organised by EXHIBITOR magazine, an award-winning print and online publication featuring best practices for trade show marketing. EXHIBITOR magazine has hosted its own highly respected Exhibit Design Awards for more than 30 years. Editor Travis Stanton, along with senior writer and awards program manager Linda Armstrong and a group of highly esteemed designers and marketers — who have no connection with ISE or its exhibitors — will be at the RAI for the duration of ISE to determine the winners. Confirmed judges include: ●● Matthias Braun, creative director, Studio Atelier Damböck Aleksey Kozyrevstand Messebau, Germany ●● Rob Huisman, previously managing director of the Association of Dutch Designers (BNO), The Netherlands ●● Aleksey Kozyrev, exhibition design team lead, Wargaming Group, Belarus ●● Andrew Sexton, creative director and agency partner, 2LK Design, UK Every stand on the show floor will be automatically considered by the judges, with winners identified in three categories: up to Matthias Braunstand 39sqm, 40-100sqm and 100+sqm. The judges will be assessing each stand in relation to a number of criteria, including how well it communicates the brand’s key messages; its use of space; its use of graphics and lighting; how easy it is to navigate; and its overall impact. The three winners will be announced at an award ceremony on Thursday, 9 February at 16.00 in the ISE Audio Solutions Theatre.

FUTURE AV PROFESSIONALS PROGRAMME

A

s in previous years, ISE is going to make every effort to introduce students to the industry and to help exhibitors recruit well-trained junior staff through its wellestablished Future AV Professionals Programme. By visiting Integrated Systems Europe 2017, young professionals are invited to create the foundation for their future career at the best-attended tradeshow for professional AV and systems integration. The programme contains an introduction to the industry to learn from industry experts, a guided show floor tour to see multiple different technologies and a small ‘Job Fair,’ where the students can support their career planning by getting in contact with the exhibiting companies and inform themselves about career possibilities. Students thus can start building their professional network. Companies, on the other hand, have the possibility to meet the industries’ next generation and possible future employees. Last year the programme was well attended by academic institutions from the Netherlands and Germany who enjoyed a fully organised programme day including bus transfer, show entry and lunch. Students take part in the programme via their academic institution. ISE looks forward to welcoming enthusiastic students and exhibitors to ISE 2017 to a programme full of career opportunities, networking possibilities and industry know-how. The Future AV Professionals Programme takes place on Friday, 10 February 2017 from 10am-4pm. For further information, please visit www.iseurope.org/students. In order to participate in the programme as an Exhibitor, please contact students@iseurope.org

IoT MAKES SMART BUILDINGS EVEN SMARTER

T

he Smart Building Conference is a one day event that explores the latest smart building technologies, business strategies, market research and workflow case studies all presented from some of the world’s leading smart building experts and thought leaders. Moderated by Bob Snyder, editor-in-chief of Channel Media Europe, the conference will take place in the RAI Amsterdam the day before the show opens. SBC Chair: Bob Snyder According to SBC Chair Bob Snyder, tech's big engines of internet and mobility may be the vehicles of changes — but today their engines are driven by pistons made from the Internet of Things. Memoori Research projects the combined global market for the Internet of Things in Buildings (BIoT) will grow significantly from $23.5Bn in 2015 to $75.5Bn by 2021 — an amazing CAGR of 20.7%. The Managing Director of Memoori, James McHale, says, “The IoT use cases that will experience the greatest revenue growth in Western Europe are smart buildings, smart home, in-store contextualized marketing, and connected vehicles, all of which will see revenue increases of more than 28% CAGR over the 2016-2020 forecast period.” “It's no wonder that our conference theme this year is: IoT Makes Smart Buildings Even Smarter. And James McHale will be one of our keynote speakers,” said Snyder. The topic of Smart Buildings also includes building automation systems, energy management optimisation systems, lighting, room scheduling, building security, IT/Telecom, digital signage, emergency & public address, audiovisual systems and others. By taking just one day to attend the Smart Building Conference, everything you need to know about the technologies shaping the next few years will be discussed by industry experts, manufacturers, associations and consultants. They will guide you so you can straight away take advantage of the business opportunities and boost your sales and bottom line. Those business opportunities include how HoloLens will change the way we look at all buildings, the growing market for clean air in home and business, in-building wireless and wayfinding, and how to profit from the increasing need for security (physical, virtual, and video security). SBC’s twin tracks (Residential and Commercial) offer dual insight to help you understand that Smart Building is neither a product nor a standalone technology but an end-to-end solution that will change homes, offices and buildings forever. The Smart Building Conference will take place on 6 February in the Forum. Registration begins at 08.30.

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S DANIEL LAMARRE TO PRESENT CLOSING KEYNOTE

A

ttendees on the final day of ISE 2017 will have the opportunity to experience first-hand one of the world’s leading international business development executives. Daniel Lamarre, the President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil, will present the show’s Closing Keynote speech on Friday 10 February 2017. Lamarre will share with attendees the success story of Cirque du Soleil: “Cirque du Soleil is often credited for having reinvented circus arts,” he said. “After 30 years, our continued success now depends on our ability Daniel Lamarre to push the boundaries of creativity and human performance even further and continually reinvent ourselves. This lesson applies to many businesses out there. Success often depends on our entrepreneurial spirit, on our ability and willingness to take risks and to push ourselves out of our comfort zone. “On a personal level, it is when I embrace my desire to learn something new and do things differently that I am at my very best.” For over 30 years, Cirque du Soleil has been at the cutting edge of live entertainment creation and production with shows such as Quidam, Saltimbanco and Amaluna combining stunning acrobatics, theatrics, visuals and music. Cirque du Soleil has consistently shown how creative

expression can benefit from the adoption of the latest audio-visual technologies when used to enhance and compliment a show’s key storylines. Lamarre explained the relevance of technology to his company’s ongoing success: “Technology has always been very important in the development and the evolution of our content. It magnifies the performances of our artists and allows us to continuously surprise our audiences. Our research and development team works in collaboration with various universities to always be at the forefront of emerging technology. Shows such as ‘O’ and KÀ, in Las Vegas, represented breakthroughs for us on that front.” “More recently, for a show such as TORUK - The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, technology allowed us to really immerse the audience in the world of Pandora and even allow them to interact with the show through an app developed with SAP. In two of our latest shows, Luzia and Paramour, the use of technology provides a key element of surprise and poetry, whether through a digitally-controlled rain curtain or with dancing drones.” Lamarre is responsible for Cirque du Soleil’s business and creative strategy. The company operates across five continents and is the world’s largest theatrical production company. The ISE 2017 Closing Keynote will take place in the Forum at 09.00, 10 February 2017.

CEDIA TECH COUNCIL

PREDICTIONS FOR 2020… A 17-member panel is looking into the future to make their predictions for 2020. Here’s part one—the (Mostly) Entertainment Edition. Dave Pedigo, CEDIA® Vice President, Emerging Technologies, leads the CEDIA Technology Council, a group that attempts to make concrete predictions regarding what’s next in the smart home industry. Its most recent project: creating the top predictions for the year 2020.

Dave Pedigo

[W]

e’ll start with some entertainment options: As far as image quality goes, 16K 16-bit high-frame-rate content is emerging. The shades of red, blue, and green you can see now on a state-of-the art screen? It’s in the hundreds. Shortly it’ll be in the tens — then hundreds — of thousands. And to make delivery of all that imagery as efficient as can be, video will be decoded and rendered at its device. The screen itself will be revolutionised in the near term as adaptable and movable surfaces for video appear. Suppose you had a screen in your home that simply adapted its physical shape to the aspect ratio of whatever you’re watching? Say goodbye to letterboxing forever. Additionally, television screens could also take the form of movable tiles. Tile TV 2.0 will be a screen that doesn’t fog up in the shower. As for audio, high-res immersive sound will become standard. Like 3D displays, by 2020, you’ll feel like you’re really in the movie, no headset required. Immersive audio will also require fewer speakers. “Gone are the days where you really need seven surround-sound speakers for 7.1 systems,” notes Tech Council member/industry expert Julie Jacobson. Then,

immersive personal audio will soon follow suit. Yes, headphones that create an illusion that sound is occurring at a point in a virtual sphere surrounding the user’s head is coming. All of this means we’ll see the resurgence of high performance audio and video. As Tech Council volunteer Gordon van Zuiden (the owner of cyberManor) puts it, these devices will be able to “replicate what the artist or producer wanted.” The amount of streaming data for entertainment alone will ultimately render copper wire redundant, ending its useful application. For those not streaming, physical media will be analogue only. (And you’ll see pricier vinyl for the purists.) Augmented and virtual reality will soon create mixed reality rooms that replace home theatre. You’re probably familiar with virtual reality headsets? There’s also “augmented reality,” technology that over-lays some kind of digital information over your real-life

experience. Combine those two concepts and you get a buzz-term called “mixed reality.” This dovetails nicely with the coming arrival of contact lenses that will include displays (and even cameras, too) and media with high-resolution video glasses. Following those leaps, implantables will become the new wearables. (The term “implantable” can easily mean something as removable as the aforementioned contact lens.) Broadcasting, though, will undergo a return to The Days of Live TV with the end of (most) free TV: linear TV will be reduced to news and sports. On-demand TV content producers have proven that consumers will pay for content, and the big holdouts among the cord-cutters have been sports fans. That’s where the exceptions hit: Broadcast television will hang around for breaking news (“Storm is coming.”) and realtime sporting events (“United are losing.”). That live TV feed will be everywhere, though:


INDUSTRY

Integrated Systems Europe 2017

Intelligent glass will be used as a control interface, entertainment platform, comfort control, and communication screen. “What if all the glass that’s around you in the house could have some level of projection so that shower doors, windows, and mirrors could be practical interfaces?” asks van Zuiden. Additionally, all media and games will stream directly to smart displays which become apps on walls. Sending the kids chasing a virtual Pikachu all over the house sounds like a pretty good way to wear ’em out on a rainy day. Need more stimuli all around you? Check: Full-wall video with multiscreens will appear in the home. Projection mapping will begin to appear on surfaces throughout the home, too. Think about a distortion-free plaid pattern surreptitiously projected onto a neutralcoloured couch. Sick of tartan? Tap the app and make it blue denim. AI and machine learning will monitor — and fix — your home. Imagine your AI plumbing develops a leak, which triggers a moisture sensor, which tracks the failed pipe or coupling, which orders a small machine loaded with high-tech sealant to close the leak. The IoT will stretch into other rooms of the home and the intelligent kitchen will ensure you never burn another burger. Robotic arms will stir your sauce. Your countertops will become touch screens. Sensors will shut off burners the moment internal meat temps hit the desired doneness. In the garage, autonomous vehicles become more ubiquitous — that’s great, but how

does it impact the CEDIA channel? Simple: All new cars will be internet connected. Meanwhile, user-programmable platforms based on interoperable systems will be the new control and integration paradigm. YOU: “Alexa, please find Casablanca on Apple TV and send it to my Android phone. And order up a pizza.” IT (ACCURATELY): “Deep-Dish Deluxe from Pizza to Go?” (Oh, and: All that name checking we just did means that IoT platforms will retain their brand identity — but become interoperable.) Here comes the part of the discussion where contradictions come in: We will have the same level of interoperability as we do today. Jacobson points out that some providers are moving away from interoperability “so they can more tightly control the user experience and tech support system. Comcast is a perfect example: they offer a small list of curated devices that they allow to interoperate with their system.” On the other hand, interoperability could become more complex, even when devices have the same logo. Pedigo explains it thusly: “Suppose you’ve got Wireless Protocol X. So theoretically, all Protocol X devices should work together; however, there are revision numbers, so Protocol X.1a works well with all Protocol X.1a-z devices, but the latest and greatest is Protocol X.2 is not backwards-compatible.” Always-on high-bandwidth connections will make everything virtualised and/or

25

stored in the clouds. Goodbye, laptop memory, hello: Big data — which will continue to drive innovation at a pace never seen before (and therein lies a monetisation strategy for IoT devices). “Owning the data, analysing the data, and improving and innovating become the keys to corporate success — all empowered by a connected digital society.” — Mark Barrenechea, CEO, OpenText. As far as physical devices, Moore’s law (the doubling of transistors on a chip every two years) will come to an end and we’ll move on to the next paradigm. It appears that silicon chips can only keep shrinking for five more years. Now it gets really exciting: Predictive algorithms will replace conditional logic. As Jason Tanz wrote in a piece called “the End of Code” in Wired magazine: With machine learning, programmers don’t encode computers with instructions. They train them. If you want to teach a neural network to recognise a cat … you simply show it thousands and thousands of photos of cats, and eventually it works things out. If it keeps misclassifying foxes as cats, you don’t rewrite the code. You just keep coaching it. Collecting and connecting this amount of data and things has a con: The con? Everything that can be hacked will be hacked. The pro? We’ll have a seamless technology experience between devices and locations. A combination of gesture and voice recognition means we’ll see “No User Interface” replacing GUI and VUI (graphical and voice) everywhere we turn.

INFOCOMM: GROWING THE AV INDUSTRY INTO A GLOBAL MARKET FORCE By David Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International

David Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD, is Executive Director and CEO of InfoComm International

[I]

was recently at an industry event and came across a familiar character. He was all blackand-white, slouching low in a leather armchair, sunglasses on, tie flying back, and being literally blown away. You’ve seen him: It’s the Maxell guy, from the iconic, 1980s print ad for Maxell tapes. It’s a compelling visual and a classic representation of what makes the AV industry so great. But as you’ll recall, it’s an ad for tapes. They don’t even make VCRs anymore. And that’s okay, because here’s what I love about the ad: Products and technologies come and go, but experiences represent the enduring impact of audiovisual systems. Which brings me to Integrated Systems Europe 2017 in Amsterdam, one of the world’s great celebrations of AV. ISE is a perfect way to start a new year, and I’m here to tell you that InfoComm International and its Board of Directors have been looking ahead since before last ISE, crafting a plan to support this exciting industry from now until 2020. About three years ago, InfoComm started emphasising the fact that AV professionals were really in the business of

creating experiences. We took the message to members all around the world and watched as companies embraced its meaning. Now it’s time to take the message to a wider audience. AV has come to pervade all aspects of life and business. The technology has become so outstanding — and accessible — that it’s in high demand. Late last year, InfoComm released its new 2016 Global Pro-AV Distribution Channel and Trends Report (infocomm.org/research), which indicates that 2017 should see continued growth in solution sales, based on growing demand. At the same time, two other things have happened: AV technology has grown more commoditised, and it’s started to fall under the purview of information technology departments at more enterprises. Those enterprises understand the business benefits of AV systems and they want them to be part of their overall technology strategy. At first blush, this may sound like unwelcome change. It’s not. It’s an incredible opportunity. But the change buffeting this industry has made it so that we also need to change the way we communicate the value of AV. IT departments understand data and efficiency; they don’t necessarily understand experience, nor the fact that experience, when it comes to AV systems, will lead to the business outcomes their bosses seek. Part of InfoComm’s next strategic plan is to take the message directly to enterprise decision makers — the people in corporations, universities, hospitals, stores, and hotels who write the cheques for technology solutions (or influence the writing of cheques). With the help of professionals like you, we’ve been successful in growing this industry. Now we all need to grow the market for AV solutions. InfoComm plans to help increase awareness of AV by going directly to your enterprise customers and talking about experiences and outcomes. We’re also going to become an authoritative source for market intelligence. Enterprise customers live in a world of data and analysis, so we want to be able to tell our industry’s story through in-depth research. And we’re going to reinvent our value proposition, including looking at ways to welcome more diverse companies to our ecosystem, including important participants that don’t necessarily see themselves in AV. The distinction between “market growth” and “industry growth” is key to the next three years at InfoComm. We’ve spent more than 75 years helping grow the industry — training and certifying AV professionals, establishing best practices, developing standards, and building trade shows like ISE that bring manufacturers and AV pros together. And we have no intention of retreating from 75-plus years of progress. Rather, we intend to build on that foundation as we move forward. InfoComm’s commitment to helping grow the market for AV means reaching beyond the industry and into the organisations that benefit from what you do; to increase awareness and communicate how AV technology helps enterprises achieve their goals. The future’s bright. Wear those shades. Even if you need to hold them in place when you’re blown away by the experience of AV.

nfoComm has once again stepped up its efforts in order to deliver continued growth in Europe. Investment in the region has again seen an impressive increase in memberships, with numbers up by 17.4% from 574 to 674 since January 2015. A string of appointments and partnership agreements made in 2016 have strengthened InfoComm’s European team, and allowed the organisation to deliver a packed schedule of regional activities as part of its drive to add value to its members. Last year at ISE 2016, InfoComm announced it had partnered with AV and IT Solutions distributor Leteng AS to offer professional AV training in Norway. “This partnership with Leteng AS is a testament to our progress in expanding our training resources in Europe,” said Pamela Taggart, CTS, Senior Director of Development for Europe, InfoComm International. “Partnerships like this allow the AV industry to increase the number of skilled professionals around the world.” This successful initiative sees courses using InfoComm materials continuing to take place in Norway in 2017. Further educational inroads were made into Europe thanks to a series of partnerships with influential organisations. InfoComm teamed up with LINDY, which delivered a series of successful webinars in four different languages, including French for the first time ever. A friendship agreement with Spanish AV association Asociación de Fabricantes, Importadores de Sonido, Iluminacion y Tecnologias Audiovisuales (AFIAL) led to a series of co-hosted AVT Challenges in Spain as part of InfoComm’s bid to promote professional development in the region. The AVT Challenges were a volunteer-led initiative, made possible with the hard work of the InfoComm Spanish Advisory Group. Other successful events in a busy European

schedule included a Networked AV Systems Training Day in Utrecht and a string of roundtable events in London and Dublin. The teams will be looking to continue these activities throughout 2017. InfoComm also participated in a plethora of cooperative events with AV Media in Czech Republic, Epson in Italy, Commtec and Prodytel in Germany, NEC in the UK, and many other member companies where InfoComm added value to its existing events by contributing content, education, industry experts, or awareness. The organisation reached out to the Italian market with the local systems integration industry association, SIEC (Systems Integration Experience Community).

The joint seminars at the show were delivered by the InfoComm Italian Advisory Group, highlighting that volunteers are helping to lead the way with InfoComm and increase awareness. Pam Taggart said: “InfoComm and SIEC are continuing our close relationship, as we seek to maximise opportunities for promoting education standards and best practice. We share many goals in common including education, certification, and of course in growing the AV industry here.” As the worlds of AV and IT continue to converge, InfoComm and Harman Professional Solutions have developed a brand-new education program designed to bridge the skills gap in this area. The organisations offered a two-day course titled Design for

the training and development of individuals and organisations. This not only ensures the industry delivers an exceptional experience to end users but also allows customers to identify organisations that hold accreditations,” said Jon Sidwick, Vice President, Maverick. A partnership with Stampede saw the distributor offer free one-year InfoComm Affiliate Memberships to AV professionals in Europe. “Stampede has a formidable operation that has global reach and deep roots in the integration community,” Taggart said.

Introducing InfoComm’s Latest European Team Member InfoComm has appointed Laurien Pauw to the position of Account Manager for Northern Europe. Based in the Netherlands, Laurien is working with members in the Benelux and Nordic regions. She possesses a wealth of experience, having worked as an account manager at several radio stations, a large publisher and a TV production company. Laurien also worked as a channel and partner manager in the telecom industry. “We’re thrilled to welcome Laurien to the team,” said Pamela Taggart, Senior Director of Development Europe at InfoComm International. “It is an exciting time for InfoComm. We look forward to developing our European offering as we continue to experience significant membership growth.”

“We think that our joint Affiliate Membership offer will appeal to the growing number of European AV companies and individuals looking to benefit from the best training resources and associated services the industry has to offer.” As a further marker of InfoComm’s growing presence in Europe, the European Commission (EC) released a tender for AV and conference technology (AV&C) worth €15m that mentioned InfoComm training and certification as part of the Quality of Service evaluation criteria, which earned the submitting company points. These accumulated points determined a score, which formed part of deciding (neutrally) who won the tender. In describing the staff profiles the EC would seek through the tender, InfoComm’s Certified Technology Specialist — CTS, CTS-D and CTS-I certifications — were listed as qualifications. 2017 will again see InfoComm seek to raise the bar in Europe by continuing its efforts to promote professional development, standards and the industry, with a host of activities in the pipeline. With its sights firmly set on increasing membership numbers and delivering value, the AV industry can be sure that InfoComm will provide another host of engaging educational activities for the year ahead.

F

rom education to healthcare, from transportation to hospitality — and, yes, to retail — few AV technologies embrace more market sectors than digital signage. Mordor Intelligence says it will be worth over $21 billion by 2020: Markets and Markets, not to be outdone, says it will be worth over $27 billion by 2022. Other researchers have approximately similar numbers, and forecast growth in the region of 5.5–7.5%.

Florian Rotberg, Managing Director, invidis consulting Digital Signage is now a proven, established market — which means, for the most part, that changes and developments are incremental, rather than revolutionary. There continue to be developments across the board — in screens, in content creation, in players — with a notable one seeing digital signage systems integrated with the corporate network to give access to, for example, ERP systems. That, in turn, is attracting growing numbers of IT integrators.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR • It’s long been the mantra of the digital signage market: “Content is king”. While the screen hardware gets all the attention, it’s the ease with which content can be created, updated and distributed that is the real driver. HTML5 has brought real change to the industry, by allowing the rise of simple content authoring and playback appliances that have substantially lowered the barriers to entry. Look out for innovations in content creation at the show. • Some of the most eye-catching and captivating digital signage installations comprise multiple screens arranged as a video wall. But: the invisible bezel — to deliver a seamless image — has become something of a holy grail in the industry. We’re now starting to see “super narrow bezel” and “ultra-narrow bezel” technology, with bezels as minuscule as 3.5mm. Can screen manufacturers make them any smaller? ISE 2017 will be the place to find out. • A bezel is still a bezel, however thin. That’s seen digital signage users turn to large screen flat panel displays, although these can present affordability and logistical challenges. Brightness is becoming more important as signage moves outdoors. ISE 2016 saw the launch of commercial OLED-based displays — and the past 12 months has seen LED technology make huge strides in terms of pixel pitch, and thus viewability from close distances. Whatever the latest developments in screen technology, you can expect to see them at ISE 2017.

• ‘Engagement’ and ‘enhancing the customer journey’ continue to be the goals of retail organisations, and digital signage has a role. Various technologies have been tried — QR codes, NFC, motion sensing, touch interactivity, facial recognition — as has social media interaction, with varying degrees of success. The quest continues, though, to do more than simply ‘advertise’. ISE 2017 will show new developments in how digital signage interacts with consumers. • ‘Wayfinding’ and ‘information delivery’ continue to be a key market for digital signage, especially in transportation hubs such as airports, train stations and the like. The increasing use of screens outdoors is putting emphasis on survivability in terms of resistance to extremes of temperature, water and contaminant ingress and vandalism. Increased ‘ruggedization’ is likely to be feature of many new product introductions in Amsterdam. • Measuring the effectiveness of digital signage continues to challenge the industry as it competes for marketing spend with more entrenched media such as billboards. Using sensors and other technologies, metrics — such as impressions, dwell time, and viewer response — can be gathered and, using the power of Big Data, a feedback loop created in order to increase effectiveness. Look out for products enabling increased sophistication of information collection at ISE 2017.

EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY n SEE FLOORPLAN: HALL 13

“IT-ification within the AV industry has been ongoing for a number of years and will continue to impact on both industries, but by no means negatively.

T

he buzzword in primary/secondary education is ‘engagement’ because it is proven to improve student learning outcomes – the measure by which investment in AV technology is judged. That means not just interactivity, but the inclusion of platforms with which pupils are already familiar. Interactivity lends itself ideally to a collaborative style of learning.

Lee Moss, Marketing Manager, CDEC Collaboration tools and technologies are no less important in education than in other markets. While there remains some lingering preference for proven, trusted technologies, educational organisations are increasingly — despite budgets that continue to be constrained, and teacher reticence — looking to deploy “the latest thing”.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR • Perhaps the biggest shift in the education market over the past year has been the decline of IWBs (interactive white boards) and the rise of large flat panel displays (FPDs), often Android based and supporting a range of learning facilities. IWBs are far from dead, though, and ISE 2017 will see new products launched in that category as well as new FPDs designed for education. • The BYOD/mobile device phenomenon continues unabated, with tablets and smart phones becoming increasingly central to the learning experience. For higher education, providing these devices free of charge has become a competitive differentiator. Mobile devices specifically designed for education are likely to feature prominently at this year’s show. • As with other market sectors, the line between AV technology and IT technology is blurring. This has been the case in higher education for some time, but it is increasingly being felt in primary/secondary education. Security has become a significant issue. Expect to see companies specifically addressing this challenge at ISE 2017.

• Projectors in many schools are being replaced by large flat panel displays — but projectors have been given a new lease of life by LED/laser illumination, giving them a lower lifetime cost of ownership. 2017 will see the launch of new LED/laser projectors — many with short throw and ultra-short throw lenses, specifically designed for the classroom. • The cloud is becoming as omnipresent in education as it is in other AV markets, bringing with it new levels of flexibility, accessibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness. It’s now home to many of the resources — notably video — that are being deployed in classrooms and lecture halls. VLEs (virtual learning environments) and MOOCs (massive open online courses) are being facilitated by AV technology. • There’s a real buzz in the industry about VR/AR (virtual reality/ augmented reality). It seems likely that education will be an early adopter, given the power of these technologies not just to engage, but to immerse. They may well be part of the trend towards gamification. We expect ISE 2017 will see early examples of these.

rom what now seem like simple home theatre systems through what were often point solutions for controlling lighting, heating and so on, the home automation market has begun a transformational journey. This will see the integration of almost every device in the home as the Internet of Things moves from being an academic concept to an everyday reality.

Dave Pedigo, Senior Director of Learning & Emerging Technology at CEDIA The challenge for manufacturers and integrators/home technology professions (HTPs) comes from the off-the-shelf devices that are becoming increasingly available. The opportunity is to integrate ‘things’ into seamless solutions, accessible from anywhere. The Internet of Things is not about ‘things’ — it’s about the services that join them together to deliver real consumer value.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR • As more devices in the home become controllable, making it intuitive to control them has become a design imperative. With Siri and Cortana — and the, in many ways, game-changing Amazon Echo — we’re becoming increasingly used to using the spoken word to achieve what we want to do. Control and automation will, again, be a key theme at the show. ISE 2017 will see the introduction of new generations control platforms in new applications. • According to Frost and Sullivan the average four person family home will have around 36 IoT devices by 2020. The key product at present is smart thermostats — there are estimated to be over two million installed in Europe alone — not least for their ability to generate worthwhile savings. At the show, look out for new entrants into this hot market. • Immersive audio from Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D and DTS:X is seeing really great traction in home cinema applications. This plays into the growing consumer trend for environments that engage people fully in a deep, emotional movie-watching or live music experience. We will see more from these major players at ISE 2017 and beyond.

• Few in the industry haven’t been following the trials and tribulations of the Oculus Rift. The big question in many minds is whether AR (augmented reality) and/or VR (virtual reality) will ever move beyond being a niche gaming product. Doogle and Sony seem to think it will. ISE 2017 will be the place to help make your mind up. • There are those who believe that the increasing affordability — and audio quality — of soundbars may further extend the role of the TV as an entertainment hub, such that it is no longer the gateway to a video library, but also to a music collection — both local and remote. The availability of soundbars featuring, for example, Dolby Atmos technology may make that even more likely. It will be fascinating to see how this plays out at ISE 2017. • LCD TVs have had a long and hugely successful run. But are they about to be challenged? OLED has advantages in terms of convenience and image quality, and is inching towards prime time. Meanwhile, diminishing inter-pixel gaps for LED technology may make the unthinkable thinkable: an LED screen you can comfortably watch from only a few feet away. ISE 2017 will give a good indication of where the future lies for consumer screens.

uch of the coverage of the Internet of Things tends to focus on eye-catching consumer applications, such as the camera in your fridge that will allow you to see what you need when you’re

in the supermarket. The reality, though, is that the IoT will have a far more profound impact on commerce and industry. Cisco Systems estimates that 50 billion objects will be connected via the

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR • It’s easy to overlook the fact that one of the most compelling aspects of the Internet of Things is its relationship with Big Data. Data can be generated by, and collected from, every connected device — data that, properly used, can create actionable business information and opportunities for improvement. ‘Predictive analytics’ is the way forward. At ISE 2017, look for organisations that can turn the Internet of Things into the Internet of Facts and Trends. • Every device connected to a network is an opportunity for a security breach. Multiply the devices, and you multiply the security threat. Encryption and user validation are only two approaches to minimising risk — along, of course, with physical security. Find out at the show how manufacturers are addressing a very real concern. • A key objective of smart buildings is to minimise power consumption — saving money and, perhaps more importantly, contributing to sustainability. However: those same smart buildings are seeing a proliferation of cameras, sensors, wireless access points and so on — all of which consume power. A key thrust for the industry is to find ways of mitigating that impact with lower power solutions. ISE 2017 will provide the opportunity to find out who’s doing what.

IoT by 2020, and the IoT will generate $19 trillion over the next decade. The majority of that growth will likely come from commercial buildings. Meanwhile, energy consumption

continues to be a key driver of the smart buildings market: the International Energy Agency believes that some 40% of the world’s energy is consumed by buildings.

• In a fiercely competitive world, hiring and retaining the best employees is essential — and providing an optimum working environment for them is key to achieving that goal. While the focus in smart buildings remains on operational efficiency, the best smart buildings are making a contribution to employee satisfaction and productivity. For the latest developments in how intelligent buildings will optimise the occupant experience, ISE 2017 is the place to be. • Historically, many of the management systems in a building were connected, often via proprietary networks — but not to each other. IP, and standards like IEEE 802.3, are changing all that, providing an opportunity that allows all building management systems and associated devices to be interconnected through common wired or wireless infrastructure. Evidence of how IP is transforming smart buildings — and the whole AV industry — will be plentiful at ISE 2017. • Increasingly, smart buildings are about much more than HVAC, security, lighting control and so on. A more holistic, more joinedup approach is seeing management systems provide a way of making better utilisation of any building’s key asset — its rooms. With an increasingly mobile workforce, and the growth in working from home, space wastage can be minimised. Finding innovative ways of doing things differently are the cornerstone of the ISE 2017 experience.

ccording to Global Market Insights, the unified communications (UC) market will be worth some $96 billion by 2023. Cisco says that nine out of ten conference spaces worldwide are not equipped with video communications. By any measures, UC represents a significant opportunity for manufacturers and integrators alike. The last few years has seen what is almost a seismic shift in meeting technology. It’s not so long ago since a videoconferencing facility was a

Brad Grimes, Director of Communications, InfoComm rare and expensive beast, affordable only for the largest organisations. Proprietary architectures and minimal interoperability bedevilled the market. Today, open standards are the norm, and unified communications incorporates, for example, easy document sharing around the world. Today’s interactive, collaborative meetings are now just as likely to be ad hoc, on-the-fly, spontaneous — and the era of the huddle room is upon us. The scalability of UC solutions is key to its success.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR • If people huddled in 2016, they’ll be doing it even more in 2017 as tech-savvy millennials look to communicate in ways with which they’re very familiar and “collaboration” is the watchword. The huddle room has become a real unified communications phenomenon, enabling screen and content sharing among small but geographically disparate groups. ISE 2017 is the place to see and hear about the latest technology developments. • An increasing percentage of the work force is no longer officebased. Collaboration solutions that integrate mobile devices — phones, tablets, laptops — are growing in popularity. The latest UC technologies recognise and embrace this ensuring that, wherever a participant is, he or she can not only attend the meeting, but actively participate in it. Expect to find leading edge examples of this approach in Amsterdam. • UC, video conferencing and so on are no longer, for the most part, technology islands managed by an AV organisation. Their strategic and tactical importance — they have become missioncritical applications — and their absolute dependence on the network mean they are now mainly in the domain of the IT team, and IP-capable devices are now standard. Look out for innovative new IP-enabled UC devices at the show.

• The new word in the business lexicon is “agile” — the ability to react, to move quickly. That’s seen the rise of portable huddle room systems that integrate video, audio and screen sharing into a simple, easy-to-carry conferencing solution that can be set up anywhere — in moments. 2017 will see industry emphasis on easy-to-move, easy-to-deploy UC solutions — and they’ll be on show at ISE 2017. • Whatever the kind of collaboration — fixed video conference room or huddle — the chances are, increasingly, that it will be cloud-based, whether exclusively, using a hybrid model or on an ‘as-required’ basis. Whether that cloud is public or private will be both transparent and irrelevant: it will work seamlessly, and will be hugely cost-effective. Expect to see an increasing number of cloud-based solutions — and not just in UC — at ISE 2017. • Integration with the corporate network. UC, video conferencing and so on are no longer, for the most part, technology islands managed by an AV organisation. Their strategic and tactical importance — they have become mission-critical applications — and their absolute dependence on the network mean they are now in the domain of the IT team. ISE 2017 will see major IT vendors demonstrating their ability to power the UC revolution.

he last few years have witnessed a tremendous explosion in the possibilities presented by immersive audio. From more all-encompassing sonic environments in museums and other install applications, to increasingly ambitious ideas involving broadcast production, immersive audio and various related developments — often now grouped together under the catch-all term Next Generation Audio (NGA) — are now poised to usher in one of the most significant periods

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR • Support for the AES67 standard — which aims to provide interoperability between existing Audio over IP (AoIP) networking technologies – has grown significantly over the last 18 months. But whilst the transportation aspect is beginning to assume clarity, there is a feeling that much still needs to be accomplished around the issue of network control. A major problem has been actually trying to define exactly what needs to be done to provide users with genuine benefits. At ISE 2017, expect to see different attempts to provide a variety of answers to this complex issue. • There will also be signs of the next stage of the networked audio revolution in which devices that have network connections only will start to become prevalent. Removing analogue connections enables a more flexible form factor and a reduction in cost. Building on this, an increasing number of products use Power Over Ethernet (Poe), which will simplify connectivity. You’ll see examples at ISE 2017. • Immersive audio technologies including Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D are now making a major impact in the home environment. In

of change since the transition from analogue to digital audio began in earnest. Similarly, the shift from point-to-point connectivity to networked audio continues to accelerate. In the main, this change has been driven by IP-based technologies, with an ever more broad cross-section of endusers looking to benefit from their scalability and ease of integration into existing network infrastructures.

particular, soundbars that allow consumers to achieve a more cost-effective entry point to the immersive audio world are likely to be particularly discernible. This development acknowledges that only a relatively small number of householders will have the space and/or resources for large-scale immersive installations. ISE 2017 will provide the opportunity to see plenty more from these and other key players. • As with any new entertainment-driven trend, progress will to a large extent be a function of the availability of content. With an increasing number of broadcasters now examining ways to augment their 4K/UHD productions with NGA techniques, ISE 2017 may play host to a number of new solutions geared towards enabling immersive audio delivery that is cost-effective and complementary to existing workflows. • The emergence of a new generation of IP-based intercom platforms that support numerous applications and flexible (re) configuration has been a recurring theme of recent ISEs. Given the innovative new systems to have emerged over the last 12 months, that should be expected to continue at ISE 2017.

Discover mind-blowing clarity and realism, delivered through a super high contrast image (more than 1,000,000:1) with an impressive 1,000 nit brightness and no artefacts due to uniform brightness intensity. Unique pixel drive circuitry achieves an ultra-fast video response time with a frame rate of 120fps, making it perfect for fast moving content. The revolutionary display scales effortlessly using ZRD-1 modules with an extremely small pixel structure. This allows multiple panels to be tiled seamlessly to create super-size screens with any dimensions or aspect ratio, and absolutely no bezels or visible gaps. And with a virtually 180 degree viewing angle, there has never been a more spectacular showcase for every audience member.

Ideal for small to medium conference rooms, the ConferenceSHOT AV sets new price performance standards for USBbased enterprise-class conferencing systems. Compatible with all major UCC soft clients such as Skype for Business, WebEx and Google, ConferenceSHOT AV integrates a 10x zoom PTZ camera and audio into a single system, so it is as simple as plug-and-play. The system supports a matching powered speaker and two EasyUSB MicPOD microphones, and with complete IP access for remote control, monitoring and video streaming, it is easy to deploy and support. “The ConferenceSHOT AV turns your BYOD device into a small space collaboration system with professional PTZ camera quality and full room audio performance,” said Beth Torgerson, Vaddio Marketing Manager. “It’s a significant step up in quality and performance from current webcam-based technology offerings.” Minnesota-based Vaddio was purchased by Milestone AV Technologies in April 2016 and joins Milestone brands including Chief, Da-lite, SANUS and Projecta.

Vaddio

Vaddio showcases RoboTRAK Presenter tracking system Designed for classrooms and corporate training environments, Vaddio’s next-generation RoboTRAK makes presenter tracking intelligent and automatic, eliminating the need for dedicated camera operators. This enterprise-class solution delivers precision tracking capabilities for small, medium and larger venues. RoboTRAK uses advanced IR technology to provide greater accuracy than audio or facial-recognition based technology when tracking instructors or presenters. The ultra-smooth pan and tilt motion ensures presenter tracking is natural and effortless, enabling the presenter to focus on teaching, not technology. RoboTRAK is an easy to use system comprised of a RoboTRAK IR tracking camera and a presenter lanyard that lasts up to 40 hours on a single battery charge. RoboTRAK pairs with any Vaddio RoboSHOT PTZ camera. Capable of tracking up to 50 feet, RoboTRAK can be either ceiling or wall-mounted, and can be paired with the Vaddio AV Bridge MATRIX PRO for an automated ‘classroom in a box’. STAND: 2-C42

WEALTH MANAGEMENT FIRM BANKS ON CRESTRON

[W]

hen a private wealth management bank required a modern, multi-use event space at its London HQ, they chose Crestron technology for a world-class AV experience. AV Consultant and Crestron installer, VEGA Europe, was commissioned to deliver the project within a tight timescale, ensuring minimal disruption for customers. The innovative bank, located in a historic building in London, wanted a flexible event space within its atrium, to host events including presentations, exhibitions, dining, catwalk shows and live bands. In addition, the bank wanted to enhance AV in two other areas,

a client lounge and a client banking area. VEGA Europe was appointed to incorporate an outstanding AV system that would enhance the client experience, while respecting the Grade 2 listed environment. Crestron’s DigitalMedia solution was selected as the main control system, thanks to its flexibility and reliability. For command and management a powerful Crestron AV3 Control Processor was installed, along with two key control interfaces. The first is a TPMC-V15 15’’ Touch Panel which can be connected to any of the eight locations within the space, the second an iPad Air installed with the Crestron control app for remote system management.

The brief specified a truly multi-functional event space. Working with Crestron technology, VEGA created a customised acrylic lectern, portable yet light-weight, alongside an impressive microphone, audio processing and speaker equipment, all connected to the Crestron system. The entire project was completed in just six weeks, fulfilling all of the client’s expectations to deliver a modern, contemporary event space with exceptional AV that was automated, maintenance-free and easy-to-use.
