Interactivity/Collaboration within the workplace/meeting room is used as a term so often, it is assumed that everyone understands what this is and how it effects them.

The projection industry is as vibrant as ever, a recent trip to ISE demonstrated the commitment to Projection from Manufactures and the scale of what is achievable is really quite breathtaking.

After a rather fabulous lunch and networking session the afternoon presentations commenced.... Up First were Extron

The Universal AV Sales and Supplier Event took shape in 2016, has gone from strength to strength and is fast becoming quite the talked about Integrator event in the Industry.

The event is unique, key partners and suppliers come together to discuss roadmaps and product with the Universal Sales and Project Management Teams, before a joint session takes place with all suppliers and Universal members looking at the industry as a whole and where common problems are whilst trying to provide solutions. The evening provides further networking opportunities for all, with team building thrown in for good measure, and where you have sales people you see fierce competition and this year was no exception with a closely fought game of family fortunes.

As the plane touched down rather bumpily at Leeds Bradford Airport, my thoughts once again turned to ISE and the grandeur of the Audio Visual Industries largest showcase really hit home.

Having spent 3 days at the event, I can safely say that my step count was well up, but was my interest in the latest technology peaked by anything that gave me the WOW factor.

The themes across much of what we saw was the same as in previous years, AV over IP and 4K (True 4K was the ultimate question though).

Was I wowed? Yes but of the enormity of the event again and the imaginative stands, but of the technology? Only of 1 thing – The Sony Crystal-LED display wall, but unless you have a few million spare that one is just a pipe dream…

So what and who did we see?
