As the first generation of smart buildings reach an age where users want to make changes and add new functionality, they are discovering how expensive it can be if you don’t plan for the future from the outset.

Iain Gordon, President of KNX UK will talk about what makes a system future-proof.

Our panel discussion will include representatives from IMAX, Sony, Sounds United and AWE.

Synopsis:

On-demand streaming services now account for more than 50% of our total audio consumption and provide a great opportunity for installers to significantly improve the experience for their customers whilst increasing profitability.

As an industry we should embrace how consumers choose to listen to music and move away from the more rigid, inflexible methods and set ups. We’ll look at the size and shape of the market space and investigate common service providers and the options to integrate these services into multi-room systems.

Introduction to Habitech’s new Commercial AV Training Courses 2019

In response to rising consumer demand for more distinctive, high quality experiences, the commercial AV marketplace of shops, clubs, bars, restaurants and hotels is now seeking the exclusive style of high performance AV that residential installers deliver every day. As the opportunities multiply, all the resi installer needs is a greater understanding of commercial AV system design. With two complementary Commercial AV training courses, scheduled for May 2019, Habitech will be helping CI dealers to compete for and win a bigger share of all the new work available.

Through an introduction to Habitech’s latest training innovation, created especially for the EI Live audience, Technical Manager Justin Martin Lawrence will illuminate the nature and challenges of the commercial installation workplace and explain how resi skills can be integrated with a knowledge of pro system product and design for the very best results.

Over sixty minutes, Justin offers an overview of the’ Introduction to Commercial AV’ course, explaining the differences between residential and commercial AV systems, their contrasting electrical requirements and configurations.

He’ll also introduce the source equipment and the challenges of integrating audio and video in commercial spaces. Summarising the advanced-level ‘Commercial AV Integrator’ course, Justin will profile the more specialised aspects of CAV deployment, including CAV configuration software.

This bespoke EI Live training event will form the ideal backdrop for an increasingly wide-ranging product line-up on display at Habitech’s EI Live stand 48, including the Sonance Professional Series of distributed audio in-ceiling, pendant and all-weather on-wall speakers; Yamaha Pro’s configurable multi-zone power amplifiers and versatile audio processors; Wyrestorm’s incomparable ‘Network HD’ video-over-IP platform, Ruckus’ peerless switch technology and wireless prowess, and iPort’s ‘Surface-Mount’ platform of iPad wall-mount solutions.

Our panel discussion will include representatives from IMAX, Sony, Sounds United and AWE.

Enno will be giving a presentation at the show, highlighting to the Custom Installers and Manufacturers present the strengths of his software, Roon.

Synopsis:

After being involved with the AVIXA Rack Building standard which was published last year, the Rack Design standard was the next calling and Nick is heavily involved with the on-going creation of this so we feel it is a timely topic for your attendees to get an inside scope on. Nick also offered a 90 minute Rack Design session with CEDIA at ISE earlier this year.

There will be a Q&A in this session, and Nick will also be offering a further Q&A on the Visualization stand for attendees to extend the conversation and ask any questions that may have arisen from the presentation.
