Our AV Experts assess the latest and greatest from Integrated Systems Europe 2020
ISE is the world’s biggest AV event showcasing the lasted developments in the AV and systems integrations industry. The exhibition covers 15 halls in Amsterdam and features over 1,300 exhibitors. This series of insights follow our AV expert’s views on the latest technology and its impact on the industry.
Randall Boenig, AV Consultant, investigates the switch over from HDBasedT to AVoIP. With PTS clients looking to make the same transition, Randall was keen to explore the most cost-efficient yet robust solution. “For some time now, companies have been developing AV Network distribution systems; Creston, AMX, DVI, Gear, Wyrestorm, RGB Spectrum, Aten, Lightware… The list goes on,” Randall explains.
“The market is saturated, and after witnessing some of this firsthand, the primary differences came down to cost and support, not technical capabilities”- Randall Boenig
The event highlighted that the trend for more robust and forgiving networks is still on the rise. PTS’ AV specification currently contains lighting and acoustic benchmark expectations, but is it time we included a network expectation too?
“AVoIP, Dante, IP control, and VC/UC are putting more and more demands on Client IT teams and Infrastructure, but if these systems fall over, additional experience, support, and guidance become crucial for companies who are pushing the boundaries with the latest in technology innovation.
