Turning up the volume of the Audio category at ISE
Over the last five years, the role of Audio at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) has grown significantly to the point that it is now an extremely important element of the show. In turn, ISE has become a must-exhibit for companies concerned with manufacture, distribution and integration of audio equipment. In response to that, relevant visitors flock to the show to stay at the cutting edge of all things audio.
The ISE show floor is home to more than 250 audio exhibitors. In fact, an entire hall is dedicated to this particular area of the AV and systems integration industry. While Hall 7 may well be the starting point for audio enthusiasts, there’s a lot more to see around the show.
As well as a repertoire of leading Audio exhibitors, ISE offers various other sound-related reasons to visit the show. There’s the AudioForum, which is one of the pre-show events, taking place on the day before the main show days. Presented by Conessioni, the conference explores key topics aimed at consultants, sound designers, system integrators, installers, companies and anyone interested in knowing more about the latest audio technologies.
A key feature of Hall 7 is the ISE Audio Solutions Theatre, which showcases expertise and insights from the length and breadth of the audio industry. During ISE 2016, the theatre hosted a range of sessions, including: Exploring Networked Audio Protocols, A Revolution in Invisible Audio, The Impact of Polar Pattern on Sound Behaviour, and Networked Speakers: Extending the Control Path Beyond the Amplifier.
One of the reasons for Audio’s growing prevalence at ISE is the general increase in live production and stage technologies at the show. This has seen a notable rise in large-format loudspeaker and amplification brands, adding even more weight to the other Audio technologies on offer, such as microphones, networking, compact loudspeakers, processing, control and headphones.
ISE 2017 will be another very important event for Audio professionals.
