ISE's legacy in AmsterdamOur thank-you to the city where we spent 15 years

The Jeroen Pit House

The RAI Amsterdam was the home of ISE for 15 wonderful years. Our relocation to Barcelona marks a monumental new chapter in ISE’s history,  but we must not forget Amsterdam and what it enabled us to achieve.

We are very proud that ISE, in partnership with our co-owners CEDIA and AVIXA, will be leaving a legacy in the city. The Jeroen Pit House (Het Jeroen Pit Huis) is a new transitional care unit for chronically ill children who need 24/7 medical care, and their families. Many of these children will have been treated at The Emma Children’s Hospital – the RAI’s chosen charity. We are supporting the project alongside multiple AV brands, including AVEX and CEDIA Award-winning installer Woelf.

Thanks to the ongoing generosity of industry contributors, we have brought together the best in technology, design and installation expertise to develop a hi-tech entertainment space within the transitional care unit. Including a sensory room and home cinema, the project will provide, among other things, an area of escapism for chronically ill children and their families to spend time together and prepare for life at home. Understandably because of the pandemic, the schedule has changed a little from the initial roadmap below; however, construction work is under way, with completion scheduled for the spring of 2022.

The aim of The Jeroen Pit House is to make the difficult transition from hospital to home easier, safer and steadier for chronically ill children and their families. The house will help families to adapt to the changes that will be required at home, providing education and support for the journey ahead of them. Our hope is that The Jeroen Pit House will be a cherished resource for the people of Amsterdam for many years to come.

Updates

We’ll bring you updates as the project makes its way to completion, so please check back here regularly.

September 2021:

Construction is now underway, with completion expected in spring 2022.

Despite the turbulence of the past 16 months, AV industry contributors have been undeterred in their commitment to the project.

Over 30 AV brands have committed to donating services and product to develop the media space, which will include a sensory room and home cinema. Woelf and AVEX have generously contributed design, product management and installation services. Other big-hearted contributors include ACT, Antratek, Apart, Arcam, Attero Tech, Audac, Audinate, Audipack, Barco, Belden, Biamp, Bose, Chief, Cisco, Crestron, GenericAV, Intronics, Kenwell, Kramer AV, Logitech, Middle Atlantic, Monitor Audio, Nedis, Pakedge (SnapOne), Philips, Procab, Projecta, SCP, Sennheiser, Sony, StarTech, TU, and tvONE.

 

Early March 2021:

This week Emilie van Karnebeek, the Chairman of The Jeroen Pit House, appeared as a guest on popular Dutch TV show Koffietijid (Coffee Time) to discuss the project.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte (pictured with Emelie), also a guest on the show, was impressed by the initiative and took the time to talk with Emilie in greater detail. The Prime Minister noted the importance of the transitional care unit being within walking distance of the hospital and its green surroundings for a pleasant environment.

He commented to Emilie (translated from Dutch):

“I find it so impressive how you can convert such an event [the loss of her husband Jeroen] into something positive. These are also initiatives that you want the government to look at and if it works, you can do this in other places.”

This was a special moment for The Jeroen Pit House. At ISE, we are incredibly proud to be supporting such a worthwhile project, in partnership with our co-owners AVIXA and CEDIA. Thank you to the industry contributors for your help to make this dream a reality.

Construction is about to get underway, more updates to follow soon!

Mid-December 2020:
