ISE 2019 – Part I
ISE is a big opportunity for people like me to come and have a look at what the rest of the world, and specifically Europe, is doing in the field of AV. A lot of AV companies have decided to put all of their video and audio over the network. And this has been talked about for quite a long time but we’re really getting to a point where almost every single manufacturer actually has a solution all buying for that new sector of technology space.
This is really the big topic for this year’s show: The Convergence of AV and IT. I’ve seen a lot of cool products here but what’s a little bit disappointing is the lack of focus on user experience. However, there’s a lot of focus on technology and functionality. Interestingly, manufacturers don’t seems to be thinking about user experience which is a great critical part of a whole technology solution. That’s why it’s so important that you pick the right pieces of technology and think about how they actually work together.
