The agenda for the event is as follows:
4.00 pm - 4.15 pm | Welcome to Pro AV Collaborative
Introduction to Futuresource’s ISE 2024 event and a zoom-out of the industry. How has the pro AV sector evolved over the last twenty years, and how will this shape what’s to come?
4.20 pm - 4.45 pm | True MicroLED revolution: an industry at inflection point
MicroLED is poised to disrupt the world of displays, and for good reason: the technology is undoubtedly a leap forward in image quality, with ASPs on par with flat panel displays. But what are the roadblocks hindering mass production? How will the technology coexist within the current ecosystem?
4.50 pm - 5.15 pm | The convergence of video production and the world of AV
Organisations across all verticals are now embracing video content creation. After a surge in demand catalysed by the pandemic, how does the industry transform this elevated interest in professional video technology into more sustainable ongoing business?
5.20 pm - 5.45 pm | The intelligent workplace
The pandemic demonstrated the need for digital, dynamic, integrated workplaces, but uncertainty over the return to the office continues to reign. How should workspaces change to best suit hybrid workflows? How will AV and IT combine to create the smart workplace of the future?
5.50 pm – 6.15 pm | As-a-service & managed services: transforming the AV business model
For pro AV, differentiation potential lies within software and platform capabilities. Vendors are opening their APIs for higher interoperability and connectivity – something the industry has long grappled with – and the SaaS and PaaS landscape will shift rapidly to reflect these changes. As software and cloud-enabled services emerge as a market, increased value for AV clients is on the horizon. But first, the industry must overcome some significant hurdles.
