AV community prepares for its annual gathering

ISCVEx picThe annual meeting and exhibition of the AV industry’s trade association ISCVE will be taking place in person on 21-22 March at its traditional venue, the Coombe Abbey Hotel in Coventry. ISCVEx 2023 will be the premier event for audio, communications and AV professionals.

In a post urging potential exhibitors to act fast to secure space, ISCVE said: “We are thrilled to have such amazing support from our industry. This year we are expecting 38 exhibitors and more than 200 attendees and we cannot wait to see everyone there!”

Visitors can expect to see the latest products and services from leading suppliers in the sound, communications and AV industry, as well as learn about cutting-edge technology during the seminars.

This year there will be three seminars. Ron Bakker BSc CTS, the systems marketing manager at Yamaha Music Europe, will be presenting New ways to increase entertainment production quality and make more money: immersive sound reinforcement and acoustic enhancement.

According to ISCVE: “Ron will present an introduction for decision makers and makes the case why the ‘immersive approach’ is a good idea for both the entertainment and professional communication markets – not just from sound quality point of view, but also from business point of view.”

Secondly, ISCVE trainer Jamie Angus-Whiteoak, who was a Professor of Audio Technology at Salford University, will present Go on! Surprise me! How audio and video coding works. The talk will highlight how coding works to condense much of what we see and hear electronically on a day-to-day basis into something we can view and enjoy, and simply pop in our pockets, describing in a non-mathematical way the principles behind the coding methods.

Finally, Daniel Fattorini MInstSCVE will speak on AV and SaaS – trends in moving from hardware-based products to software licence models. He will discuss how the industry can best adapt to the changes, to what extent it can learn from adjacent technologies and what might the future look like with more cloud-delivered features and functions.

All three seminars will take place on the second day of the event, 22 March. The first day will see the ISCVE Annual General Meeting, together with a Members’ Day. The Members’ Day will include a presentation from Alex Krasnic BEng(Hons) MSc FIOA MInstSCVE entitled Bolting the door before the jolting horse: Lessons learned for the installed sound/AV industry when engaging with architects.

The Members’ Day is open to all pre-registered guests, non-members and members alike. Further details, together with registration information, can be found at iscve.org.uk/iscvex/iscvex-2023/.
