Get immersed in new realities The Driving Simulator will combine VR with perfectly synched motion and audio

Holovis staff will be on hand throughout the show to ensure that attendees will not only be able to experience the features on offer but also get professional insight into how this type of technology is becoming utilised by a growing range of AV businesses. This is being increasingly seen in the areas of product design, workforce training, factory planning and construction.

COMPELLING CONTENT

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has called virtual reality (VR) the most promising candidate for “the next computing and communications platform”. But where are the biggest opportunities that it offers the B2B marketplace? And how do some related technologies fit in: augmented reality (AR), which overlays an information layer onto the physical world, and mixed reality (MxR), which allows people to interact with virtual reality in a real-world setting? You can find out at ISE 2017. The new ISE Immersive Technology Zone powered by Holovis will be premiered at the show. Holovis is a world leader in sensory experience design in the entertainment, industrial, and retail sectors.

The Near Miss Simulator will be a compelling experience for those in high-risk industries

FOUR ENVIRONMENTS The ISE Immersive Technology Zone powered by Holovis will occupy a dedicated area within the RAI Amsterdam. Within four virtual environments, attendees can explore the different immersive technologies – VR, AR and MxR – and gain an understanding of how they differ and the business challenges they can help overcome. No pre-booking will be necessary. Stuart Hetherington, Holovis CEO,

comments: “We design complete solutions that transport guests into alternative realities, whether that’s fictional worlds for entertainment or real situations for R&D or training. We are excited to be partnering with ISE to showcase a complete suite of virtual options, from singular immersive experiences to those that can be shared by a group to inspire end users and show the AV industry how they can support the development of complex set-ups.”

The immersive environments on display will feature content created by the Holovis media and software development teams from within the VR remit. These will include the Near Miss Simulator, a virtual training environment delivering compelling content for those working in high-risk jobs, and a Driving Simulator showing the enhanced impact of VR when combined with perfectly synched motion and audio. In addition, an AR Zombie game will highlight the interactive networked capabilities of this technology accessible from any personal device, while the physical challenge of removing as many balls from a Virtual Ball Pool as possible will demonstrate MxR in action. Integrated Systems Events MD Mike Blackman says: “We are delighted to be linking with a market-leading company on the ISE Immersive Technology Zone powered by Holovis. It will showcase how quickly this

innovative application of technology is opening up exciting new options and solutions for the AV industry.” As an experiential designer, Holovis delivers VR, AR and MxR solutions within the attractions and enterprise industries – on both permanent and mobile applications. Its installations are embedded in industrial design studios, theme parks, planetariums, science centres, ride simulators, retail digital media and (big) data rooms. Within the attractions space its work includes using AR to transform passive scenarios, such as queue lines, into rich forms of entertainment – alleviating boredom, supporting wider ecosystems and encouraging repeat visits. For enterprise, the company’s ground-breaking work has significantly advanced the development of virtual manufacturing, using CAVE environments and HMDs to visualise complex data sets for design, R&D and next-generation collaborative spaces. The ISE Immersive Technology Zone powered by Holovis will be located in the Park Foyer at the rear of Hall 8.

04 MIKE BLACKMAN: ISE MD

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2017

Welcome to the ISE Daily Preview Edition for 2017

Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, bids you welcome to this publication After a successful ISE 2016 – the first four-day show in the exhibition’s 14-year history – I’m confident that we have made even bigger strides in bringing you ISE 2017, the largest ISE we have produced so far. The ISE Daily Preview Edition 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 show.

NEW SPACES ISE 2017 will see more than 130 companies make their debut. There will also be some changes around the RAI Amsterdam exhibition centre. The addition of the new Hall 9 allows us to dedicate floor space to exhibitors concerned with 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 space has also been created at the Congress Square. It links with the Europa Foyer, Diamond Lounge and Auditorium. This new area is now known as Hall 14. ISE 2017 will be over 3,000 square metres larger than the 2016 edition. In another first for the show, Hall 13 will showcase technologies and solutions serving Education Technology. This hall will bring together manufacturers and service suppliers serving this vibrant market sector. 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.

‘I’m confident that we have made even bigger strides in bringing you the largest ISE we have produced so far’

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 30-minute ‘Flashtrack’ sessions to full day conferences and workshops. Full details can be found on the ISE website. In addition, 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 sponsored by Crestron (Hall 8), 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).

SMART BUILDING CONFERENCE Those of you who are in Amsterdam on the day before the show – Monday 6 February – will have the opportunity to attend the Smart Building Conference 2017. The

conference will explore how IoT makes smart building smarter. The twin-track, full-day event will look at both the commercial and residential markets and feature some of the world’s leading smart building experts and thought leaders. The climax to SBC 2017 will be a speech from the award-winning German architect Ole Scheeren; this will also be the ISE 2017 Opening Address, which precedes the Official Opening

Reception. Scheeren will talk about how technology and architecture can be a creative catalyst for one another.

CLOSING KEYNOTE The addition of the extra day last year gave us the opportunity to introduce a new feature – the Closing Keynote. 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. It all makes for an exciting four days in February! I look forward to seeing you at ISE 2017.

06 INFOCOMM INTERNATIONAL

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2017

Making great strides in Europe and beyond InfoComm International, which co-owns the Integrated Systems Europe show with CEDIA, represents the commercial AV industry worldwide. David Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD, InfoComm’s Executive Director and CEO, offers his thoughts on InfoComm’s future plans, its efforts in Europe, and getting the most out of ISE 2017 What are InfoComm International’s priorities for the year ahead? 2017 is going to be a big year. InfoComm will be working hard on implementing our new strategic plan. InfoComm’s Board and staff craft a fresh plan every three years, building on prior plans and charting a future course to help support the commercial AV industry. This latest version was ratified in July 2016 and will take us from now until 2020. InfoComm will work to be a trusted hub of collaboration and communication for the industry’s many, varied and growing number of participants, and act as a catalyst for market growth worldwide. As a hybrid industry association and professional society, we’ll implement a variety of strategies to reach our goals. These include increasing industry awareness among enterprise customers. Today’s decision-makers know the outcomes they want from technology, but don’t always understand the role AV can play. We also intend to create new content and programmes that focus on the solutions and experiences that deliver those outcomes. InfoComm and its Board feel strongly that today’s AV companies are in the integrated experience business, not the technology business, which leads to the outcomes customers require. It’s hard to thrive simply by selling technology. A few more things we’ll be working on: We’re going to invest in more market intelligence, because enterprise customers live in a world of data, analysis, and metrics. We’re also going reinvent our value proposition and membership model, in part to welcome more and different professionals to the AV industry. And finally we’re going to make sure our brand identity communicates to the world that this amazing industry is behind so many of the AV experiences people enjoy – and count on – every day.

What is InfoComm doing to develop and promote career paths in the industry? Obviously, our certification and education programmes remain cornerstones of our efforts in professional development. We continue to try and make it more convenient for AV professionals to further their careers, like offering CTS testing right at the RAI Amsterdam during ISE 2017.

‘Today’s AV companies are in the integrated experience business, not the technology business’

We’re also developing new microcredential programs that allow people to focus on and demonstrate proficiency in targeted skills. In North America especially, we’ve enjoyed tremendous success this past year partnering with colleges and schools to adopt InfoComm curriculum and AV training. It’s critical to our industry’s future success that young people see AV as a skilled career they can thrive in. We’ve reached similar agreements in other parts of the world and hope to build on that momentum.

What is the current focus of InfoComm’s standards programme? First, we’re focused on standards development and maintenance, whether those standards go through national accreditation bodies or are InfoComm-specific standards created by expert groups for the targeted benefit of this industry. Second, we continue to work on awareness. Our director of standards recently addressed a meeting of the European Commission’s videoconferencing committee at the International Criminal Court in The Hague. She was invited to talk about InfoComm standards and how they might be adopted. Our standards group includes committed volunteers across Europe who use our standards and talk about them at local events. We’re optimistic the global industry will continue to see standards as a way of elevating their work.

For a number of years now, InfoComm has been working to increase its presence and influence in the EMEA market. What are its latest initiatives here? In Europe, our team spent 2016 building great partnerships with

AV companies that believe in training and certification as a way of building long-term careers in AV. Many of these partnerships were just starting last ISE, but now they’re mature and having a positive impact – membership and training agreements with Comm-Tec, Leteng, Lindy, Maverick, Stampede and others that benefit AV professionals across Europe. And there’s more. We collaborated with Harman on a multi-day seminar on networked AV design and streaming that the company rolled out in Germany and plans to expand. In Spain, we now have an agreement with the AV association AFIAL to offer our AV Technology training and testing. We’ve been working with SIEC in Italy on joint webinars and sessions at their show in Bologna. Membership in Europe continues to grow, and having grown our dedicated European staff has certainly helped. Awareness of what InfoComm’s programmes can do for the European AV market is important. We’re proud, for example,

that when the European Commission released a tender for AV and conference technology worth €15m it mentioned InfoComm training and certification as part of the evaluation criteria. And in describing the staff profiles the EC would seek, CTS, CTS-D and CTS-I certifications were listed as qualifications.

What are the principles behind InfoComm’s professional development programme at ISE 2017? Robustness and ease of use. Professional development is a big part of our North American show, and we want our show in Amsterdam to deliver the same benefits. We’re offering education in several ways, including indepth MasterClasses, half-day conferences, and free FlashTracks. This year we’ve added what we call Application Labs, which are hands-on training experiences in things like network traffic analysis and HDBaseT troubleshooting. But the biggest thing we’ve done is make

it easier for attendees to get training. For the first time, they can buy an All Access Pass to InfoComm’s professional development and visit any course they want whenever it’s most convenient.

What is your advice to attendees for getting the most out of ISE 2017? First of all, plan things out. I don’t need to tell anyone that ISE is a big show. Second, adopt an attitude of discovery. Look at stands that aren’t on your list; scan the ISE Daily and other sources for the unexpected; and check out our educational offerings for some fresh industry insights. Third, meet people – lots of them. Set up appointments in advance with key contacts. The show is huge and hectic, and everyone is pulled in a thousand different directions. Finally, have fun. Amsterdam is a fantastic city and ISE is a fantastic show. Make sure you give yourself enough time – like all four days – to enjoy the experience. www.infocomm.org

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2017

Improving member experience CEDIA EMEA recently merged with CEDIA to form a single global organisation. We talk to CEDIA’s CEO Vin Bruno about what this means for the industry, and the trade body’s plans for ISE 2017 Why was the decision taken to integrate CEDIA and CEDIA EMEA? What can members expect from the unified organisation?

What are CEDIA’s priorities for the year ahead?

Formally integrating CEDIA and CEDIA EMEA has been many years in the making. Increased globalisation of members’ businesses coupled with increasing operational alignment through last year’s brand strategy work made it all the more clear that operating as one global organisation would improve the member experience across the board. CEDIA members will now have more than 50 professional staff members working on their behalf to create programmes and resources that will help their company stay competitive and profitable in our ever-changing industry. We are excited to move forward as one strong voice in standards development, educational and accreditation efforts, consumer awareness,

2016 set the stage for CEDIA to gain momentum on several key initiatives and 2017 will provide even more opportunity for CEDIA to focus on workforce development, increasing awareness of CEDIA among our industry partners, and continuing to improve the CEDIA member experience. Workforce development is certainly a hot button in the industry and helping build the pipeline of qualified employees is a top priority for CEDIA. When current CEDIA integrator members were asked by CEDIA Market Intelligence, “what are the biggest challenges facing your business?”, 67% of integrators selected finding qualified employees. CEDIA has determined a threepronged approach to tackle

industry partnerships and workforce development.

this challenge which includes engaging with students, outreach to veterans and the development of an apprenticeship programme for both the UK and US markets. Right before ISE 2017, CEDIA will be hosting the Smart Home Pavilion at Design and Construction Week 2017, which is the co-location of the International Builder’s Show and the National Kitchen and Bath Show, and this year held in Orlando. This is just the beginning of CEDIA’s plans to foster closer and more productive relationships between the CEDIA community and the design/build community across the globe. Last but certainly not least, the CEDIA member experience is continuously top of mind for us and as we take our next steps as one global organisation, we look forward to working with new members around the world to provide the tools and resources they need to be successful in this industry.

What is CEDIA doing to develop and promote career paths in the industry? Education, along with workforce development, are top priorities for CEDIA this year. In the UK specifically, CEDIA training has been awarded City & Guilds accreditation. City & Guilds evaluates externally accredited training against a comprehensive benchmark that has been developed from over 130 years of experience in managing quality systems and training courses. Building on this initiative, the UK Government’s Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) has approved the development of a Smart Home Technician Apprenticeship standard. This standard is set to encourage young professionals to enter the home technology industry and develop a career within this sector. Once the standard is available, any industry employer will be able to hire an apprentice, send him or her for training, and receive

funding from the UK Government in return.

What are the current focuses of CEDIA’s standards programme? On a global level, CEDIA and CTA are working on identifying attack vulnerabilities for connected products in the home and developing best practices to mitigate those risks. In the wake of DDoS attacks and other similar Mirai attacks, it’s clear that more needs to be done to properly secure internet-connected devices. In fact, this topic will be covered in a joint CEDIA/InfoComm conference at ISE 2017 on the Friday morning. At a local level, in the UK, CEDIA has been working with the British Standards Institution to produce a British Standard Publicly Available Specification (PAS) for smart home wiring, entitled ‘Design and Installation of Telecommunications and Broadcast Infrastructure within the Home’. The CEDIA

Preview Edition 2017 08 09 ISE 2017 Preview CEDIA Q&A v2 -PB corrected FINAL.indd 1

06/01/2017 12:11


CEDIA 09 sponsored PAS will give recommendations for the design and installation of domestic wiring infrastructure for the delivery of digital services based upon the requirements of BS EN 50173 and BS EN 50174.

‘We are excited to move forward as one strong voice’

What are the principles behind CEDIA’s professional development programme at ISE 2017? Our education programme is designed to help members boost their technical skills and drive business improvements. CEDIA is building off last year’s successful education programme offering some of our most popular courses including Advanced Networking, Rack Building, and Home Cinema Design. I’m also particularly excited for attendees to have the opportunity to learn from industry business guru Leslie Shiner. Leslie’s business courses on topics like true labour costs, margin analysis, and how to work smarter, not harder are some of our most popular courses at the CEDIA show. We will also be offering CEDIA’s highly respected Electronic Systems Technician (ESC-T), Designer (ESCD), and Networking Specialist (ESC-N) Certification examinations. Between our more than 30 education sessions, the eight free CEDIA Talks on the CEDIA stand and our two stages – the CEDIA

Residential Solutions Theatre and the CEDIA Smart Building Solutions Theatre (sponsored by KNX) – we’re looking at a very full schedule at ISE 2017.

What is your advice to delegates for getting the most out of ISE 2017? It’s not a unique tip, but planning ahead really is key to making the most out of your experience at ISE. With every square metre of the show floor sold out, there is a lot to take in. Planning ahead and pre-booking the CEDIA courses you want to take, using the special CEDIA Training Pass, will also ensure you can take advantage of all there is to learn at the show. My other key piece of advice is to make sure to schedule enough time to explore the show floor – you never know what new solution you could stumble across. www.cedia.co.uk

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2017

Why I’m coming to ISE Visitors to ISE 2017 explain which technologies they will be on the lookout for and what else will be on their agenda at the show At this year’s ISE I hope to see a lot of integrated solutions for AV over TCP/IP. I firmly believe that the future of AV is to transport our signals over the most flexible medium possible: the network. It will also be interesting to see if there are new solutions out there to meet my customer’s needs. For instance, truly intuitive and easy to use BYOD or wireless AV transmission that works flawlessly up to WUXGA. I am also looking forward to the trainings provided by InfoComm and to interesting discussions with other professionals from all

At ISE 2017, I’ll be primarily looking to get first-hand impressions of the tech I’ve read about in various blogs, including a very thorough review of InfoComm 2016 by Ira Weinstein of Wainhouse Research . My focus will be on finding out more about technology that enhances the co-creation use case, and that’s a pretty wide opening for everything from wireless microphones to holographic displays and immersive data visualisation.

It seems a lot has changed since ISE 2016 with voice control, virtual reality and Internet of Things (the term at least) becoming commonplace. I’m looking forward to seeing how manufacturers are adapting their product portfolios to include better integration with these emerging solutions and what is being done to address security concerns. With recent developments to the KNX protocol relating to security, RF, and a new web services gateway, it will be interesting to see if products have been developed to capitalise on these advancements.

over the world. ISE is my time of year to broaden my horizons. Daniel Goldmann CEO, Renox AudioVision

For the whole of EMEA and beyond, ISE is the trade show to attend and it is a great gauge of where the industry is headed. With televisions continuing to rule the roost, I’m expecting the usual 4K TV reveals, although I could also see displays pushing 8K and beyond. I will be interested to know a bit more surrounding the High Dynamic Range (HDR), and especially how the Dolby Vision format stacks up against HDR10. With applications such as 4K video and highresolution audio direct connection, for best results fibre inside the home could be a big factor in 2017. I am also very much looking forward to seeing Daniel Lamarre,

SMART BUILDING CONFERENCE Getting smarter

Paddy Baker previews the Smart Building Conference, which this year has the Internet of Things as its overarching theme

The Smart Building Conference returns to ISE on Monday 6 February 2017 (in the Forum, beginning at 08:30). However, as conference chair Bob Snyder points out, it covers new ground at every outing. “We’ve run it for five years with almost no repetition of speakers,” he says. This year’s theme is ‘The Internet of Things Makes Smart Buildings Even Smarter’. Snyder comments: “It’s all about the built environment – this is the ocean that we swim in. Whether it’s a smart building, a smart home or a smart office, there are changes in the construction and the building business and the way that these environments will operate that will affect our device-oriented past. We’ve made the transition from PCbased connected buildings to cloudbased, more intelligent buildings, and now we’ve got the IoT coming.” The 2017 conference boasts a line-up of more than 20 world-class speakers, including practitioners from industry-leading companies such as Google, Amazon, IBM and Cisco, as well as specialist consultants and analysts. “We cover the subject in a way that makes it practical, not just conceptual,” comments Snyder. As in previous years, the conference covers both commercial and residential smart buildings, with a number of plenary sessions before the programme diverges into two parallel tracks. (Delegates are free to swap between tracks at any time.)

NEW USE CASES Aglaia Kong, CTO for corporate networking at Google, will give the first of two morning keynotes, entitled ‘Building Powered by IoT –

Beyond Just Energy Management’. This will look at some of the new use cases that are emerging as IoT technology becomes more affordable and easier to manage; including using virtual reality and augmented reality to remote manage building issues, and leveraging data analytics to dynamically optimise space utilisation. Kong was previously at Cisco, where she was VP/GM of Connected Platforms within the Enterprise Networking Group, and a key member of the cloud computing and IoT workgroups. “She’s got to be one of the top IoT people in the world,” says Snyder. The second morning keynote comes from Gabriel Wetzel, who leads the IoT and Smart City business unit at Bosch Software Innovations. Entitled ‘How DigI(O)Talisation is Transforming Buildings’, it will discuss the key enablers of the digital revolution in the construction and management of buildings: connected devices, an IoT cloud-based platform and an open ecosystem. The first keynote on the commercial track will come from James McHale, managing director of Memoori Research. ‘From Building Automation to IoT – The Long Winding Road towards Truly Intelligent Buildings’ will discuss how, even though IP and now IoT make integration easier from a technical standpoint, procedures and business models will have to change if companies are to reap the maxiumum benefits of data analytics. Among the other commercial track sessions, Lennart Ruhl, head of light management systems EMEA

Conference chairman Bob Snyder

at OSRAM, will talk about smart light management. His session will examine how the potential of the IoT within lighting is tempered by a ‘jungle’ of different wired and wireless standards, and why it is not always easy to distinguish killer applications hype.

VOICE CONTROL Let’s turn our attention now to a couple of highlights on the residential track. Charlie Kindel, who leads product development for the smart home capabilities of Amazon’s Alexa voice service, will present a keynote here. ‘Voice Control: Breakthrough in Smart Home and IoT’ will look at the growing role of voice control as use cases expand across traditionally separate verticals – such as smart home control, internet search and online banking. This overlap, he believes, indicates the beginning of the postapp era of consumer engagement. In competition with Amazon in this

field is Apple, particularly now the latter has opened up Siri to outside developers, enabling voice activation and control of smart home devices within the Apple Home ecosystem. An expert panel will discuss Apple’s HomeKit strategy – which reached a key stage recently with the inclusion of the Home app within iOS 10 – and the MFi program, which smart home device makers must use to be a part of this growing ecosystem. The conference will end with two keynotes for the combined audience. Entrepreneur Bernhard Huessy, founder of nomos system, will discuss ‘How The IoT Platform Creates Opportunity in Commercial, Residential and Marine’. Drawing on real-life case studies – nomos has delivered more than 21,000 – the presentation will look at the transition from hardware to software in enabling the IoT to make smarter buildings. Interoperability will also be explored, and Huessy will also make predictions for the next five years.

COGNITIVE IOT Finally, Claire Penny, worldwide solution leader in IBM’s Watson IoT business unit, will look at the field of cognitive IoT in ‘This Is My Building’s Final Offer’. Cognitive IoT enables buildings to learn how they are used and optimise their performance based on this. The presentation will examine how solutions that use technologies from machine learning to augmented reality will change how we see and interact with our built environment. The Conference will then segue into the ISE 2017 Opening Address, given by award-winning architect Ole Scheeren. (See page 16 for details.) “Smart building is an enormous subject,” observes Snyder, “and it’s a vehicle rather than a destination. The Smart Building Conference has a high returning delegate rate – and that just underlines that it’s not something you should only go to once.” www.smartbuildingconference.com

PRE-SHOW AND AT-SHOW EVENTS 13

AUDIOFORUM DSP and discussions Another regular fixture of the pre-show ISE events programme, AudioForum this year looks at the electronics side of audio – and benefits from the involvement of the Audio Engineering Society. Mike Clark reports

AudioForum, the full-day educational event organised by Italian publication Connessioni, will hold its fourth Amsterdam edition just ahead of ISE 2017. Judging from the impressive list speakers and topics on the programme (which was still being completed at the time of writing), the event promises once again to offer extremely interesting technical information and updates, as well as excellent networking opportunities. Chiara Benedettini, Connessioni president and editor-in-chief, explains: “Our AudioForum is being held at the RAI Amsterdam on Monday 6 February, to ensure that interested parties among the over 65,000 professionals expected from all over the world make the most of their visit to the show. “The AudioForum is part of ISE’s official educational programme and supported by the show. Since the audio world is making constantly increasing use of IT and electronics, our concept this

year is ‘Audio from the Electronics Perspective: Processing, DSPs, Software and Firmware for Design, Monitoring and Set-Up’.” Targeted at audio professionals, systems integrators and installers, AudioForum was first held in Italy in 2013, and has now reached its 11th edition, and its second at the Amsterdam venue to be organised in collaboration with the Audio Engineering Society.

PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF DSP Keynote speaker Umberto Zanghieri is an AES member, and has participated in the forum from its earliest days. A specialist in DSP, Zanghieri will take as his topic ‘Design of modern audio products: DSP options and issues covering the use made of DSP by the industry’. This is sure to be of great use to designers wanting to understand exactly what this technology can do for them. AES Netherlands will be well represented at the event. In a session that will be introduced

AudioForum was first held in Italy in 2013, and has now reached its 11th edition

by secretary Bert Kraaijpoel, AES Netherlands president Ruud Kaltofen will speak on the topic of ‘DSP from the user’s perspective’, covering areas such as speaker control, coverage control and an issue in which he is particularly specialised – noise pollution measurement. Sponsors participating in Connessioni’s AudioForum include pro audio designer and manufacturer Powersoft and loudspeaker designer and manufacturer Eighteen Sound. Representing the former

will be Marc Kocks, fixed install business development manager, who will talk about ‘Decentralised DSP solutions’. He will focus on power management, cooling requirements, system configuration and monitoring of audio systems. Veteran audio designer and consultant Mario Di Cola will speak on behalf of Eighteen Sound (topic to be confirmed). Benedettini concludes: “Tailored to market trends and the types of show at which we hold our AudioForums, our programmes

cover the hottest topics, providing AV industry professionals with authoritative insights not only in Europe, but also in India (InfoComm Mumbai) and China (InfoComm Beijing). We ensure they get solutions to their realworld projects, which they can also discuss with colleagues from around the globe, as well as our specialist speakers.” AudioForum runs from 10:00 to 17:30 on Monday 6 February in Rooms G001 and G002.

DIGITAL SIGNAGE SUMMIT Summit makes its ISE debut 08 FEBRUARY 2017 AMSTERDAM NETHERLANDS

The Digital Signage Summit takes place on Wednesday 8 February from 10:00 to14:00 in Room E102. Ian McMurray talks to Florian Rotberg of co-organiser invidis consulting about what attendees can expect According to researcher MarketsandMarkets, the worldwide digital signage market will grow at close to 7% year-on-year between now and 2022, at which time it will be worth over $27 billion. By any standards, that’s a huge opportunity – so it’s not surprising that digital signage will, once again, be the dominant market sector at ISE, with over 400 exhibitors claiming to have something to offer – including almost 70 who are exhibiting for the first time. Equally unsurprising, perhaps, is that 2017 sees ISE’s first ever Digital Signage Summit, as it naturally complements what’s happening on the show floor. Digital Signage Summit conferences – organised by invidis consulting and Integrated Systems Events – have become a fixture on the calendars of those with a close interest in the market, with

highly successful events hosted in Dubai, Munich and Moscow. The first Summit was organised in 2007, and attracted some 50 participants: the 2016 events saw attendance of more than 500. Each symposium explores the business, technology and strategy of the digital signage and DooH (digital out of home) marketplace. Now, invidis and ISE are bringing the Digital Signage Summit to the RAI.

EXCLUSIVE INSIGHTS “We’re excited to bring our global digital signage event format to ISE,” smiles Florian Rotberg, managing director of invidis consulting. “Involvement with ISE allows us to take it to the next level. Expectations for a digital customer journey and shopping experience are growing, especially with Millennials, and the conference will offer exclusive insights into the digital signage

projects of the future, and how existing back office solutions and fully integrated digital touch points deliver a competitive edge to customers.” “ISE is all about new hardware and software,” he continues. “The conference will reflect the latest solutions being showcased at ISE, and will provide a platform to discuss the demand side and showcase what is coming up. We’re presenting the customers’ side of the business.” That’s one of the keys to the success of the Digital Signage Summit: it’s not a series of vendor product pitches, but rather, insights from technology experts and users in a format that sees two keynote speeches, presentations and podium discussions. Among the topics that will be covered at the ISE event are retail analytics, the use of high brightness signage in shop windows and the role of digital signage in

pitch LED technology, despite its relative novelty, has already seen widespread deployment in indoor installations – but about software. “The digital signage software market as well as the systems integration market is consolidating across EMEA,” he says. “A few very international players will emerge who are able to deploy, monitor and maintain global digital signage networks on behalf of their clients. On the software side, we see digital signage and digital media asset management systems growing

together. New market entrants like Adobe are moving centre-stage.” Rotberg points out that the EMEA market is experiencing double digit growth with, for example, the DACH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) region alone expected to be worth over €1 billion in 2017. For anyone involved in the digital signage industry – vendors, integrators, content creators, network providers, software suppliers, agencies and end users – the Digital Signage Summit at ISE 2017 promises to be a

‘must-attend’ event. “For any of those people, it will definitely be worth attending,” Rotberg concludes. The Digital Signage Summit takes place at ISE 2017 on Wednesday 8 February from 10:00 till 14:00 in room E102 (Elicium). Tickets – available from the ISE and DSS websites – are from €200, with substantial discounts for members of InfoComm, CEDIA and DSF Europe (formerly OVAB Europe). www.iseurope.org www.digitalsignagesummit.org

development in the creative industries, including time spent with the TVA Broadcast Group, National Public Relations and Burson Marsteller.

Two of Lamarre’s greatest business achievements involve the music icons Michael Jackson and The Beatles. Cirque du Soleil’s production of LOVE, based on The Beatles’ music, is the only live show ever agreed upon by the group. The celebration of Michael Jackson’s work ONE was produced after fierce competition with other entertainment giants working with the performer’s estate. Both accomplishments highlight Lamarre’s highly developed business skills and his ability to connect and establish a close rapport with the giants of the creative community. In 2012 he collaborated on the creation of the C2MTL Conference, a oneof-a-kind coming together of leading creative and business professionals.

Attend the InAVation Awards powered by ISE The very best of the international AV industry will be on show when the highly anticipated InAVation Awards powered by ISE returns to Amsterdam’s iconic Gashouder venue on 7 February 2017. The glittering event will reward pioneering product development and outstanding integration skill in a gathering of the industry’s elite players after the first day of the ISE show. After an informal drinks reception (18.45 -20.30) guests will take their seats under the iron dome of the converted industrial building for a four-course gala dinner, during which winners across all Technology and Project categories will be announced. The InAVation Awards is the culmination of a programme that sees manufacturers, integrators, distributors and consultants compete to pick up one of the highly

regarded prizes. Project awards highlight the most interesting AV installations

across a range of vertical sectors. Last year’s winners include Barclays Bank Global command

centre, the Parliament of Malta and the integration of the first 4K over IP operating theatres in the world.

A Project InAVation Award is considered the benchmark of success for AV integrators. Past winners report further project gains, have been covered in local press within their home countries and often go on to be picked up by other awards programmes as the year goes on. This is often your chance to see future industry influencers first. Further awards for consultants, project managers and distributors as well as the brand new InfoComm Standards award are also up for grabs. A ticket to the event offers unrivalled networking opportunities (until midnight) in a fun and relaxed format. Book by email to inavationawards@imlgroup. co.uk, call Dan Jago on +44 1732 359990, or book online at the address below. www.inavationawards.com

ISE launches Stand Design Awards For the first time, ISE is recognising the efforts of those who design, build and administer the creation of exhibitor stands on the show floor. The inaugural ISE 2017 Stand Design Awards are independently organised by EXHIBITOR magazine, an award-winning print and online publication featuring best practices for trade show marketing. The 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 – unconnected to ISE or its exhibitors – will be at the RAI for the duration of ISE to determine the winners. Confirmed jurors include: • Aleksey Kozyrev, exhibition design team lead, Wargaming Group, Belarus (pictured) • Matthias Braun, creative director, Studio Atelier Damböck Messebau, Germany • Rob Huisman, previously managing director of the Association of Dutch Designers (BNO), The Netherlands • 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 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 15:00 in the ISE Audio Solutions Theatre.

Future AV Professionals Programme ISE isn’t just about renewing old connections – it’s about making new ones. And this is perhaps even more important for those just setting out on a career in the industry. 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

electronic systems Integration. ISE’s well-established Future AV Professionals Programme fulfils a dual role: introducing students to the industry, and helping exhibitors recruit well-trained junior staff. The programme takes place on Friday 10 February from 10:00 to 16:00. It 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 informing themselves about career possibilities. Students thus can start building their professional network, while

companies have the opportunity to meet the industry’s next generation and possible future employees. Students take part in the programme via their academic institution. In 2016 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. 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. In order to participate in the programme as an Exhibitor, please contact students@iseurope.org. www.iseurope.org/students

Networking for young professionals Are you an AV professional aged 35 and under? Or do you have employees who are? On Wednesday 8 February, InfoComm is hosting an event aimed at young

AV professionals. This free-toattend event will take place at the RAI’s Emerald Room between 11:00 and 13:00, giving young industry members the chance

to meet their peers in informal surroundings and learn what InfoComm can do for them. Young professionals will also be able to learn more about how they

can get involved in the industry. Business owners will be able to send their young AV professionals to this event in order to help immerse their employees in the

industry and build confidence. To register, visit the ISE website and follow the links on the menu ‘The Show’. www.iseurope.org

Introducing Toshiba’s new 2017 product range Integrated Systems Europe 2017 is promising to be the most exciting event of its kind yet – it will be Toshiba Business Displays 4th year attending and we’re looking forward to seeing you there. Toshiba is launching a new product range in early 2017, and that will form the focus of our stand. Designed with the user and integrator in mind, we have a new range of hospitality TVs TD-H3 series, 16/7 signage – TD-E3 series and 24/7 signage – TD-P3 series, across a variety of screen sizes. We know you’ll be impressed with the features and functionality of our new range – including touchscreens and other new technology options which offer flexibility whatever your installation requirements.

Come and see our complete line-up at ISE. You’ll find Toshiba in Hall R5-30. New Embedded signage models We’ve increased your options by offering embedded signage derivative models within the TD-E3 (16/7) and TD-P3 (24/7) series, allowing key software partners to activate their own solutions directly on Toshiba Business Displays. The embedded software solutions run directly within the displays, linking central software systems without the need for external media devices or additional cabling. Some of our new embedded signage partners will be joining us on our stand this year at ISE, working across various verticals with a range of options to meet your business needs. Please come and visit our partners to allow them to demonstrate their solutions and the options available to help you.

Home Control in the Year 2020

New Display Technologies

Sales of smart home products are expected to exceed $150 billion by the year 2020 - which is only three years from now! Consumers are encouraged to buy and install their own thermostats, door locks, security panels, etc; and even if they opt not to do it themselves, their awareness of products, benefits and price points is rapidly increasing. Will you be able to deliver a compelling offering to your customers? Can you compete with Amazon, Google, Apple, Samsung, Microsoft? Do you need to?

Displays have changed significantly since they were big round tubes inside wooden cabinets showing, depending on where you lived, 405, 525, 625 or 819 lines of resolution. Today we have advanced flat panels and projectors with enough acronyms to fill a dictionary - HD, 4K, UHD, 8K, HDR, WCG, HFR, HDR-10, OLED and many more. How do all of these things work, what is hot today, obsolete tomorrow and what is coming down the display pipeline? What’s the ‘next big thing’ and how does it all impact your business? Michael Heiss will bring you up to date on everything you need to know to select, install, sell and profit from the world of flat panel and projection displays.

52 EXHIBITOR NEWS: EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2017

Educating the masses

For the first time in the event’s history, there will be a dedicated Education Technology hall at ISE 2017. Heather McLean, editor of Tech&Learning UK, outlines the scope of the exhibitors’ offerings in Hall 13 Technology supports many of the innovative teaching techniques seen in today’s classrooms and lecture theatres, and it is also inspiring teachers and educators to come up with more exciting ways to teach students of all ages. This trend within the field of education has led to the increasing annual growth of the presence of this vertical market at Integrated Systems Europe, where education-related technologies and activities

continue to expand. ISE has always included solutions and products for education, while educational buying groups also attend the show. For the first time this year, the ISE 2017 show floor includes a dedicated education hall (Hall 13), where many exciting technologies are set to be showcased and launched. There are several trends to look out for, from AV solutions to 4K products, and from videoconferencing to mobile technology and apps.

3D AR based on CAD CADALTRO Being demonstrated at ISE 2017, the CadAltro software platform is an interactive tool that provides configurable 3D views and augmented reality (AR), based on original CAD data. At ISE for the first time, the Belgian start-up is bringing CAD to mobile by interacting with the customer’s back end systems. It integrates with all relevant, multiformat product data sources, particularly CAD/CAM systems. CadAltro uses the customer’s CAD models instead of pre-rendered pictures, for high detail and strong

configurability from any angle. It includes tools to reduce administration and make meetings more engaging, including: virtual tour; storyboard; playbook; live annotations; and access to all related product materials. Using original CAD files, CadAltro transforms them automatically into 3D views, making all marketing materials available in the tool at the touch of a finger, tracking every move and saving it for further use, and synchronising afterwards with the customer’s ERP, CRM, or ticketing system.

Classroom AV systems are a hot topic for 2017. New kit is available that is designed for schools looking for voice or media amplification, plus advanced connectivity for AV control and remote management. With bigger class sizes, teachers need to be able to boost their audio quality, and there is also tech at ISE 2017 to enable that. Videoconferencing and audio conferencing systems for small to mid-sized rooms are also requirements for many

educational establishments. Remote learning is an increasingly popular trend in education circles, and remote participants must have a natural, near-in-room experience in order to make it work. The ability to record and stream events, lectures and guest speaker talks is key for universities, while for the corporate market, being able to keep accurate, high-quality records of conferences and training courses is always going

to be a useful resource. To that end, Hall 13 is showcasing many hardware and software solutions to make that possible with minimal end-user technical know-how. Also on display will be some cutting-edge technologies on show for this market, from virtual reality (VR) to augmented reality (AR), to solutions that enable configurable 3D views using original CAD data, to the benefits of social streaming. Come along and check them out for yourself!

HD mobile Span system NUREVA A full HD mobile Span system is being demonstrated at ISE 2017. The Nureva Span MC306i visual collaboration system, a full HD mobile cart, is purpose-built for Span software, which supports ideation, design, planning and other activities by groups that need to be immersed in visual information. The mobile Span system integrates a full HD 1080p solidstate, interactive projector and a customer-supplied PC to transform

The mobile Span system integrates a full HD 1080p solid-state, interactive projector and a customer-supplied PC almost any wall into a 1.88m wide interactive workspace. Two or three carts can be linked together using

Span software to produce 3.76m and 5.64m interactive digital workspaces.

54 EXHIBITOR NEWS: DIGITAL SIGNAGE

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2017

Signs of the times

Monica Heck asks two prominent digital signage consultants to pick out some of the trends for 2017 in the digital signage space An early peek at ISE 2017 preparations reveals a number of exciting digital signage trends, ranging from 4K and fine pitch LED to system on chip (SoC), with a segue into the Internet of Things and programmatic advertising. The resolution race is still forging ahead, with 4K becoming standard in the digital signage world both within the media player and on the display

side, although content creation still presents some challenges. However, as visitors to the Digital Signage area in Hall 8 will discover, this is the year that will see fine-pitch LED, in the range of 1.0-1.5mm, truly come into its own and step inside the building to lend an extra hand in the creation of exciting live interiors. “A few years ago, LED was really reserved for outdoors, but now

Pop-up experience for multitouch ATRACSYS Visitors to the Atracsys stand will experience the company’s PopupExperience, a Natural User Interface (NUI) application optimised for multi-user interactions on any Windows multi-touch screen. Designed to be robust, reactive and flexible on all displays including 4K UHD, this NUI application allows the organisation of multimedia elements as a non-disruptive interactive experience. Companies can choose items from a list of templates or modules, such as the support of PDF files, images and videos, data collection through quizzes or surveys, and website consultations, as well as games that let the audience play

with a brand. Additionally, Atracsys can implement custom modules to tailor the application to particular use cases. The content of the multi-touch app can be remotely managed through the atracCloud via a customised CMS. This facilitates easy roll-out on a variety of devices and offers statistics to illustrate usage.

New and improved Jade VOOME NETWORKS New advanced functions such as ‘ondemand remote controller’ and ‘media channels’ have been integrated into the Voome Jade content management system to deliver a contextual and responsive experience in a variety of digital signage environments. ‘On-demand remote controller’ allows users to manage and deliver applications in real-time. Emergency messaging, event triggering and products showcasing can be shared to any display of the digital signage network simply by pushing a single button on an iPad or touchscreen. In the retail market, this function is a useful ‘personal shop assistant’,

enabling salespeople to show items on digital screens that may not be available in the store, or to choose colour, size and combinations of items. ‘Media channels’ allows users to generate long lists of media files such as audio files for radio-instore applications or videos in an advertising network of screens. Voome Jade works on multiple devices such as mobile, tablet and desktop and is compatible with selected media players such as SpinetiX or LG. It is available as a cloud or as an on-premises service.

it offers brilliant picture quality and it’s stepping inside stores and buildings,” comments Florian Rotberg, managing director of digital signage consultancy invidis consulting and chair of the Digital Signage Summit (see p13). “The great advantage is that you can break out of the 16:9 aspect ratio which is offered by displays. As a result, you can adapt the LED wall

to the architecture, you can wrap it around pillars and so on.” Visitors can expect to see fine pitch LED coming not only from smaller vendors, but from the bigger brands too. “Bigger AV companies now see this as complementing their regular LCD base signage,” adds Rotberg. “We don’t expect screens to become much bigger now, because once you reach 100in you still have to get the screen through the door, which limits the size of displays.” 2017 is also likely to be the year of the System on Chip (SoC) or smart display, according to independent digital signage consultant Maurice Doran. “The player function is integrated into the screen,” he explains. “The first generation was a bit limited by a lack of powerful

hardware, meaning you couldn’t play all types of videos. But with so much new hardware and with constantly improving video processors, we are going to see these screens becoming much more viable for digital signage use, especially as the operating systems start to standardise on Android. Finally, digital signage and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly found at the heart of the smart cities trend, examples of which include the Volta electric vehicle charging station project in the US or the LinkNYC communications network. “IoT, digital signage and sensors are changing the way digital signage and AV are integrated into our daily lives,” concludes Rotberg.

Smart information columns DIMEDIS Specialising in trade fair and digital signage solutions, dimedis is showcasing new touch-sensitive rental information columns for the very first time at a trade fair in partnership with Basys and wedo. The columns are equipped with a 55in touchscreen and come with a complete implementation package that includes the kompas digital signage software and the kompas wayfinding digital route-planning software. The information columns can be laminated with customised films. dimedis is also presenting the kompas wayfinding intuitive software on an interactive column like those used at the Abu Dhabi Mall or the NeuerMarkt shopping mall in Germany. Visitors can try out the wayfinding solution for trade fairs and shopping malls for themselves and experience the intuitive LogoCloud via touchscreen, while kompas wayfinding documents all the users’ actions and search requests anonymously and thus serves as a permanent survey tool.

The Bosch Experience Zone is a shop-in-shop project for DIY superstores The Bosch Experience Zone is a shop-in-shop project for DIY superstores that creates a brand island in which the customers receive information and inspiration and are able to try out products in a practice-oriented environment. The Bosch Experience Zone integrates interactive digital signage into modern shopfitting. As an eye-catcher in the zone, the terminal aims to boost customer loyalty and encourages customers to make purchases and interact using a touchscreen. In addition to

providing information, the terminal also moves Bosch products to the forefront of the customers’ interest. With 23 languages available, the user interface can be used flexibly around the world, the information gathered can be printed out and taken away and information can be transmitted to a smartphone using the QR code. Aside from a search function, it can also create favourites lists and products can be scanned directly at the information terminal.

EXHIBITOR NEWS: RESIDENTIAL SOLUTIONS 55

Living room revolution? The technological look and feel of the home is changing rapidly in many ways. In particular, ISE 2017 visitors should look out for innovations around voice recognition and wireless systems, writes David Davies Some technological advances loom large and present themselves with a certain degree of fanfare; others creep up on you, their true significance only revealing itself in the fullness of time. For your correspondent, the latter has proven to be the case with voice control systems, whose remarkable potential only became clear when attending a conference event earlier this autumn. While there have been numerous articles in the past year about the likely role of voice control in the smart home of the future, it was

hearing a careful explanation of the domestic tasks that voice control might enable – from a straightforward adjustment of the thermostat to more complex demands made of home entertainment systems – that really hit home (no pun intended). This is a fast-moving area of R&D, and it’s clear that we are only beginning to realise its transformative potential. Suffice to say, visitors to ISE 2017’s Residential Solutions zone (in Halls 1 and 5) should look out for solutions incorporating variable

levels of voice control, but it’s hardly the only aspect of the current residential revolution that will be on display. Indeed, display itself is destined to figure prominently, with 4K screens continuing to become more accessible and – increasingly – being augmented by HDR (high dynamic range) technology that delivers higher contrast and more vivid colours. Also on the visual side, attendees should expect to see further signs of the continuing advance of OLED. Improved image quality, reduced

Home automation installations vary greatly in their requirements, with one of the bigger differences being between new build and retrofit installations. Recognising this, Wall-Smart has broadened its range of flush wall mounts to

include solutions suitable for new construction for drywall/concrete, as well as solid board and retrofit installations. Wall-Smart’s new construction mounts are completely flush with the wall, paintable and serviceable. Solid board mounts are made for installations in solid

The Wall-Smart range now includes a solution for solid board

surfaces like wood, glass, marble, partition walls and others. These mounts have depth calibration and are completely flush with the solid surface they are installed in, providing a seamless integration. Retrofit mounts answer field demand from installers who are not able to do any drywall or paint work, or are upgrading to new technology. The retrofit mounts provide a nearly flush look, yet are said to offer easy installation with no need for drywall or paint work. Wall-Smart is also presenting new construction solutions for control devices by leading brands in the industry, such as invisible mounts for Apple iPads, Autonomic Controls’ KP6 keypad, the new X60 series by Crestron, RTI’s KX10 touch panel, URC TKP100 keypad, Zipato and others. Retrofit solutions include the next generation retrofit mounts for Control4 and T3 touch panels, and the Retrofit solution for iPad Pro 12.9in.

In the midst of an audio revolution

Further developments surrounding audio over IP and emerging opportunities for immersive and object-based audio environments promise to provide crucial chapters of the ‘sound story’ at ISE 2017, writes David Davies It’s taken a while, and its ultimate outcome is still unclear, but taken in totality it is evident that we are in the midst of an audio revolution – possibly the most significant since the transition from analogue to digital audio got underway. Visitors to ISE 2017 can expect to see this manifested in a number of different technologies and innovations. Long-term show attendees will be unsurprised by the fact that audio over IP (AoIP) is likely to loom large once again. The flexibility of AoIP is now well established for install

applications, but now it is beginning to achieve significant traction for live entertainment and, in particular, broadcast. But in addition to further products with support for one or more AoIP technologies, ISE 2017 visitors should also look out for solutions offering compatibility with the AES67 standard, which provides a certain level of interoperability between existing networking technologies – and has therefore given end-users some reassurance about the present and future operations of their networked

audio systems. The show is also likely to reflect growing support for another piece of the networking puzzle. Published at the start of 2016 after five years of work, the AES70 network control standard enables the change and monitoring of all operating parameters of a network device. ISE 2017 could prove to be indicative of the standard’s long-term resonance. The other primary strand of the current audio revolution, around immersive and object-based audio, is also bound to be much

in evidence. The possibilities of these new technologies to create dramatic, all-enveloping audio environments has already made a significant impact on the world of cinema and, to a lesser extent, museums and exhibitions. Now it is crossing into other areas of install and starting to be regarded as ‘the next big thing’ in the broadcast domain. The fact that multiple technologies and techniques are now often bracketed under the term ‘next generation audio’ (NGA)

is helping them to assume greater clarity from a market perspective. At ISE 2017, NGA is set to be most extensively represented by powerful processing solutions and soundbars. Although visual technologies (not least 4K) continue to dominate the tech press headlines, the reality is that audio is going through something of a renaissance when it comes to generally groundbreaking R&D.

Wireless systems simplified Atmos in-wall speaker on show with new platform SPEAKERCRAFT

PLIANT TECHNOLOGIES The CrewCom professional wireless intercom system will be on show at ISE 2017. It is the first product launched by Pliant Technologies since the new professional division of CoachComm was announced. The intercom system is based on a new Pliant-designed technology platform called CrewNet. This network coordinates and transports all system timing, audio, signaling and controls. CrewNet can operate over standard Cat5e (or greater) and single-mode fibre lines, breaking the current barriers for wireless intercom range. CrewCom is designed around a system architecture that offers a high density of users with an easily manageable infrastructure and

lower cost per user than typically found in large-scale wireless installations. Pliant says that, in addition to excellent voice quality, the system features the industry’s smallest fullduplex wireless radio packs. The intercom systems are available in 2.4GHz and 900MHz (900MHz is limited to where this band is legal). Any combination of these frequency ranges may be simultaneously used on the same CrewCom system, giving the ability to easily put globalfriendly, dependable RF coverage where needed, while employing a consistent user interface throughout the system.

58 EXHIBITOR NEWS: UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS

Huddle up Ian McMurray explains why huddle spaces represent a major opportunity to suppliers in the unified communications and collaboration market With Microsoft’s Office 365 driving the ability for teams to share and work on documents (and Google’s G Suite nipping at its heels), there can be little doubt that the word on everyone’s lips, so far as unified communications is concerned, is ‘collaboration’. The AV industry has been quick to deliver the technology solutions to turn it into a reality – and that’s especially

true for the ‘huddle room’ phenomenon. The first thing to understand about huddle rooms is that they’re not necessarily rooms. Increasingly, the industry is talking about ‘huddle spaces’ and ‘huddle zones’ – but the purpose is the same: to enable informal, ad-hoc meetings among a few people to be easily and quickly convened. It’s an

Working together via cloud AVI-SPL

accepted wisdom that the facility cannot be pre-booked. At its simplest, a huddle room/ zone/area is designed to facilitate the sharing of information between participants – information that they bring on their phone, tablet, notebook or laptop. A hub allows those devices to connect wirelessly with a single, large flat panel display – which may support touch

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2017 interaction – so that everyone can see it. More sophisticated solutions allow multiple devices to share the screen at the same time. A further level of sophistication may see the addition of cameras, microphones and speakers to allow videoconferencing – perhaps with another huddle room on the other side of the world.

RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE The key attributes of huddle technology are that it’s easy to install and operate – some solutions are even portable – and, perhaps most importantly, relatively inexpensive. Such is the phenomenon – Wainhouse Research estimates that there could be as many as 50 million huddle spaces worldwide – that almost every major player in the industry has some kind of huddle offering, from display manufacturers through control systems providers to the ‘traditional’ VC suppliers. And: more

will make their debut at ISE 2017. Does this mean the end of the traditional meeting room and the ‘top end’ of unified communications? Absolutely not. The industry is clear that there will continue to be a significant requirement for more traditional, more formal meeting spaces: the huddle room complements, rather than replaces, the boardroom. However: a change that has been taking place, and is continuing to gain ground, is UCaaS – unified communications as a service – in which the necessary infrastructure is outsourced, rather than created in-house. Unified Communications continues to be one of the most significant and vibrant audiovisual markets – so much so that, once again, ISE has dedicated a hall (Hall 11) to it, along with the ISE Unified Communications Solutions Theatre (sponsored by Crestron). Both are likely to attract substantial attention.

Collaboration solution is secure INTEL CORP

Systems integrator and solutions provider AVI-SPL will demonstrate the cloud-based services it offers to make company-wide collaboration easy between individuals and teams at remote offices. In late 2016, AVI-SPL earned Frost & Sullivan’s award for Best Video Conferencing Services, North America. That win was, the company believes, due in large part to the Symphony Management Platform, which AVI-SPL uses to monitor and manage rooms and devices, and launch video calls for clients. Through Symphony, AVI-SPL says it supports over 5,000 conferences each month. Symphony provides cloudbased management and monitoring of collaboration spaces and devices, and handles the scheduling of video collaboration calls. With Symphony, the company notes, it is possible to live stream high-quality video to any device, and record and share from video conferencing endpoints. In its official report on the win, Frost

Zettel: F&S award is “a testament to our team’s strategic innovation and performance” & Sullivan noted: “AVI-SPL’s approach to technology implementation hinges on a strategy that is comprehensive, yet flexible enough and targeted at organisations that are looking for a measured and practical approach to videoconferencing.” AVI-SPL CEO John Zettel, said: “The award is a testament to our team’s strategic innovation and performance.” The platform supports Unify ME VMR, an OPEX-based virtual meeting room service that enables users to connect anytime, anywhere, from any device, combining web, video, and audio into the meeting experience.

Wireless microphone systems are enhanced

Aimed squarely at the rapidly growing market for collaboration solutions, Intel Unite combines an Intel Core vPro processor-based mini PC with the company’s software. It is designed to deliver virtually seamless collaboration from any location; fast, simple meeting starts; and to use existing wireless networks within the business to connect PCs to existing displays, projectors or interactive whiteboards. Peer-to-peer sharing capabilities allow users to collaborate outside the meeting room, and each can interact with the content and annotate the image in real time, and quickly and easily share files. With the Intel Unite solution, meeting organisers share a unique, rotating PIN with users to allow them to join a session quickly, with security in mind. The PIN helps to identify proximity and owner, so organisers can determine who they will or won’t allow on to

EXHIBITOR NEWS: SMART BUILDING 59

Seize the opportunity The huge potential of the smart building market is reflected in ISE allocating an entire hall to this area, says Ian McMurray There can be few working in the world of technology who aren’t familiar with two of its biggest ideas: the Internet of Things (IoT), and Big Data. The two aren’t entirely unconnected. In the IoT, every connected device – it’s estimated that, by 2020, there will be more than 50 billion of them which is why IPv6 was developed, as IPv4 only supports 4 billion addresses – features one or

more sensors that are capable of capturing and transmitting huge amounts of data. The trick, of course, is how to turn all that data into actionable information. Nowhere is the principle better exemplified than in smart buildings, an idea whose time has come: the green credentials of smart buildings are impeccable – and, of course, by saving energy, they also save individuals and organisations

money. With a market forecast to grow at more than 20% per year for the next few years, becoming worth over $75 billion by 2021, it’s no surprise that this year, for the first time, ISE has allocated an entire hall (Hall 9) to the smart building market – and will also host the Smart Building Conference on 6 February, which will include separate focuses on the residential and commercial spaces.

KNX product portfolio enhanced ABB / BUSCH-JAEGER Since ISE last year, ABB has enhanced the product portfolio of its KNX range, and is demonstrating these at ISE 2017. ABB now offers solutions including: security with movement detectors; the ability to balance heating and cooling with room temperature controller; fresh air from a new CO2 air sensor; and push-button connection. The room temperature controller is able to precisely control both heating and cooling for maximum comfort. It features a maximum five potentialfree binary inputs, of which one can be selected as an analogue input and two inputs can be used for a temperature sensor input contact. This gives the

user the option of controlling dimmers, blinds, switching sequences or scenes, for example. The new Busch-CO2 sensor not only measures the CO2 concentration in the air, but also humidity, air pressure and temperature. The company points out that, in places where people congregate – for example in meetings, conferences and classrooms – the CO2 concentration in the air should not exceed 1000ppm. The sensor can be used in conjunction with an appropriate ventilation system.

Touchzone enables building control DIVUS Designed to appeal to architects, designers and end users alike, the Touchzone from DIVUS is an all-glass multi-touch panel for the control of both private and commercial buildings. Through the customisable menu interface, the home control functions are said to be intuitive and easy to use, and can take advantage of the user’s favourite Android apps. As such, its functionality can be easily extended,

according to DIVUS. A fixed install intercom system, in combination with the associated DIVUS Videophone app and control interfaces for bell signals and door contacts, complete the range of functions of the touchpanel. Installed in the centre of the house, DIVUS says, it can serve the whole family as an information point. In contrast to mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, DIVUS believes that a wall-mounted touchpanel provides decisive advantages, especially in terms of

security: it is always retrievable, and can’t easily be lost, forgotten or even stolen. This, the company points out, is very important as noone wants to think that the control of the alarm system or other sensitive functions and information of the home might be in the hands of an unauthorised person. Beyond this, DIVUS notes that the Touchzone has an advantage in that it is always available, as it is constantly connected both to power and to the network.

INTEREST AWAKENED Certainly, in the residential market, consumer interest has been awakened by the launch of so-called DIY home automation solutions from household name domestic electronics manufacturers, and by Amazon’s Echo and Google Home, both of which can be used to control lighting, heating and security throughout the home from a central, voice-activated hub. Given the size of the opportunity, it will be interesting to see how traditional vendors to the smart building market will be challenged by new entrants – existing players in the AV or IT worlds as well as start-ups. The challenge here will be for more traditional vendors to articulate the advantages of their

solutions (although some have already begun to integrate Echo, for example, into their offering) and for integrators to devise ways of adding and delivering value. What’s also interesting is how the attempts of various organisations to establish their protocol as the industry standard will play out. The stakes are huge: smart commercial buildings are even now redefining themselves far beyond saving energy, with many in the industry talking about ‘occupant quality of experience’, ‘improved asset utilisation’, ‘predictive maintenance’ and ‘enhanced productivity’. The hardware infrastructure and the data are all in place: all that’s needed is the software…

A new range of PTZ cameras and 360º VR cameras is making its ISE debut on the Technovia stand, located in the Discovery Zone in Hall 6. The PTZ camera range includes a new face recognition model that does away with control requirements as it is programmed to track the movement of a presenter simply by tracking where his face is located within the image. An alternative feature is the ability to track the movement of students in a classroom. In this context, a student standing to ask a question would be automatically tracked and zoomed into. “The response time is so quick that I would challenge any manned camera to respond as quickly without leading to jerky tracking footage,” commented Tim Liggins, MD of Technovia.

Tabdoq tablet presentation solutions TABLETPRO The Tabdoq tablet presentation product line is making its ISE debut on the Tabletpro stand, located in the Discovery Zone. Aimed at commercial use, the Tabdoq table and floor stands enable the presentation of iPad or Samsung tablets in various commercial environments. The Tabdoq secure tablet stand is available for iPad Air, iPad Pro and Samsung Galaxy TAB A. The integrated keylock protects the tablet against theft while retaining the appealing character of the tablet and its content. The table stands are aimed at point-of-sale, but are also suitable for applications such as customer feedback, lead generation and multichannel. The floor stands aim to transform any tablet into a

digital information kiosk and are being used in the stores of some of the most successful retailers like Coolblue among others. “We hope to meet international

partners at ISE to expand our business worldwide,” commented Thomas Erwich, founder and lead designer of Tabletpro.

Training offer continues to expand LANG A topic of conversation for visitors on Lang’s ISE 2017 stand will be the Lang Academy. For years, the company notes, Lang has offered training sessions video technology for pro AV technicians, developing and organising seminars to meet the increased demand for advanced training in visual presentation technology accessible for events of any kind. Lang believes this type of training can be a competitive advantage for rental companies, resellers and

project planners, not least because of the emphasis the company puts on the practical transfer of complex technical content to small groups. With its semi-annual seminar program, and an annual average of almost 500 participants, Lang believes that its Academy is well regarded throughout the industry. The company notes that practical training courses are unthinkable without availability of the necessary technical equipment and says that, because of its extensive product portfolio, participants benefit from a comprehensive range of material

and training equipment. The Lang Academy is constantly expanding its certification offer. In addition to being awarded authorised image processing training centre status by Analog Way and Barco, the training institute is now supplementing its certification offer in field of projectors as well: the Lang Academy is also an authorised training centre for the Epson Laser Phosphor EB-L1000 and EB-L25000 product platforms from the summer training program 2017 onwards.
