Hall 14

Innovation Zone at ISE 2020

Attendees are guaranteed to encounter a wealth of new features and exhibitors at ISE 2020. More than 200 companies will exhibit at the show for the first time, including those in the dedicated Innovation Zone in Hall 14. Nearby, a new VR at ISE feature will provide fascinating applications of virtual reality technology.

Among the new exhibitors at ISE 2020 are household names such as Dell, HP and NETGEAR, as well as leading brands such as Anixter, Axis Communications, Cedar Audio, Funktion One and PSNI Global Alliance.

Located in Hall 14, the Innovation Zone has been specially created as a vibrant location that enables companies with exciting new solutions to present them at ISE for the first time. Housing 18 exhibitors, the Innovation Zone has been specially designed for ISE 2020 by ISE partner Improve.

In the same hall, attendees can explore the latest in virtual collaboration as well as experiencing an interactive virtual reality ride in the VR at ISE feature.

Two Digital Projection Multiview VR systems will be demonstrated, showing how virtual reality can be used in immersive, collaborative spaces. Multiview allows up to three people to view and interact with a stereoscopic 3D virtual model. Crucially, each person sees the object from their own viewpoint – unlike conventional multi-user VR systems where everyone sees exactly the same perspective.

Another element of VR at ISE will be immersive VR theme park ride. Sitting in Jaymar chairs fitted with D-Box motion bases, attendees will be taken on an interactive ride designed and run by Lightspeed Design and DepthQ (which will also supply the media hardware). The ride will take place inside a Vioso dome, and the VR mapped content will be displayed by projectors supplied by Digital Projection.

Rounding off a trio of show features in Hall 14, the Main Stage will present high-quality thought-leadership sessions throughout the four days of the ISE exhibition. Four content partners – ISE, AVIXA, CEDIA and AV Magazine – as well as Main Stage sponsor Shure will host presentations and panel discussions organised into four Trends Tracks: Business; Technology; Best Practice; and People Management, Training and Diversity. The Main Stage is designed and run by Improve.

The Main Stage will also host the AVIXA Diversity Council and Women’s Council events on the Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons respectively, and the Stand Design Awards ceremony on the Thursday afternoon.
