Multi-Tech at the heart of ISE

Anyone wanting to appreciate the sheer scope of the AV industry’s innovation should head to the Multi-Technology Zone situated at the heart of ISE (Halls 3 and 5). The ability to engage both in-person and remote audiences in an interactive way is crucial for AV going forward. The clearest examples lie in visitor attractions and live event venues, many of which are combining cinematic techniques, interactive content, and theatrical design to give visitors a sensory experience of fantasy or photoreal environments with a depth of immersion they cannot enjoy at home. This approach applies to the AV/IT team in the office as much as it does to the live event producer. Immersive workspaces are transforming offices worldwide with video conferencing and collaboration systems required to bridge staff in the building with colleagues working remotely. University departments, academies, and colleges are other key markets in this respect, where the forward-thinking opportunity is for participants to not only view and share information with other people but to be inside of a sensory, tactile, and virtual presence experience.

Unified communications & education technology

Hall 2 is home to both the Education Technology and the Unified Communications Technology Zones. Across the education and learning sector – whether in classrooms, professional training centers, or enabling remote learning – professionals recognize the positive impact of education technology on enhancing student outcomes and making learning spaces more inclusive. The unified communications and tech sectors have players of all sizes offering everything from single apps to whole-room solutions. Big names in these zones include Zoom and Microsoft, whose ubiquitous platforms are relied on around the world, and Clevertouch, which offers interactive screens, digital signage, and a range of apps and software for the classroom. In addition, Jabra and Poly develop solutions to enable better collaboration by offering high-quality audio and video tools. Furthermore, manufacturers in the Multi-Technology Zone in Hall 3, including Shure and Sennheiser, have developed innovative microphone solutions that offer high-quality, consistent sound in meeting rooms and teaching spaces with minimal input from users required.

 Technologies for working life

ISE has long been positioned as a leading voice in residential solutions and home automation, and also as a prominent player in smart building, thanks to the long-running Smart Building Conference. The combined Residential & Smart Building Zone (Hall 2) is our strongest-ever offering in this fast-moving area of AV technology. The last couple of years has seen a real expansion in the trend for technologies to facilitate working from home. Robust and secure Wi-Fi-connected spaces that can serve as the home office, home entertainment, and home security system are in demand. As such, the home is now a multi-functional space that provides a place of comfort, rest, and relaxation, as well as a secure and practical home office, a learning environment, a cinema, a gaming room, and a fitness suite. Some of the major names present at ISE 2023 include smart lighting control manufacturer Rako and remote monitoring and management platform developer, Snap One. Also returning to the show floor is Jung, which delivers sustainable design, engineering, and consultancy solutions.

Digital signage

The digital signage sector is forecast to reach a value of $44.7 billion in 2026, up from $35 billion in 2022, according to AVIXA. Although ISE encompasses a huge breadth of audiovisual technologies, it is also one of the largest digital signage exhibitions in the world. The Digital Signage & DooH Zone in Hall 6 is home to the full gamut of digital signage technology including Ameria, Broadsign, Navori Labs, Telelogos, and Zebrix; media players from Yodeck, as part of its cloud-based DS system, as well as from market leader Brightsign; and displays from manufacturers including Alfalite, Dicolor, and LEDECA. Audio is key to a totally integrated AV experience, whatever the setting. That’s why the ISE Audio Zone in Hall 7 is packed with solutions for every market sector, for all sizes of projects, and for any type of application. New for 2023 is the Audio Demo Rooms which can be experienced in Hall 8.0.

A fine performance

Visitors will find performance, entertainment, and live events solutions concentrated in the Lighting & Staging Technology Zone in Hall 7. Covering sectors such as entertainment, sport, and business, companies here aim to put the audiovisual experience first and foremost. Exciting technologies such as motion tracking, video mapping, and holography are presented alongside the essentials of rigging and staging which provide the foundation for the whole live experience. Some of the big names in this sector exhibiting at ISE 2023 include Adam Hall Group, Area Four, ARRI, Elation Professional Europe, Equipson, and MA Lighting.
