Digitavia Attend ISE 2014

Digitavia Attend ISE 2014

by Darren Pitt on January 21, 2014

So ISE 2014 is upon us, what are the major trends a large number of the attendees will be looking at and new technology being looked for. We’ll I for one as I know many of those attending from the corporate world will be am looking out for is USB cameras and audio devices along with what’s new in the collaboration / interactive space.

Why USB devices? It is becoming clear that audio visual is becoming a commodity item to an extent with most organisations having clear drivers to wanting to have every meeting room / space fitted with AV as a standard part of the build. It is also clear that with the increased demand for video and collaborative environments and high utilisation of these spaces that no longer is it acceptable to have some rooms that cater for say video, some just for presentations and then a few for collaboration.  Every meeting environment now has to be a true multi functional space catering for all the requirements. However, the barrier to utopia is price, whilst AV products have come down in price and we where starting to see much larger deployments taking place. Now with the added layers of collaboration and BYD now playing a much more important part in the meeting space this has pushed the proposition price back up. Improved software envelopments in video and the lowering of expectations around call quality  have now raised the important question, do we need a codec in the room? The answer is no, as the laptop or PC can now very easily perform this task and with a good HD camera to connect to and large screen you now have an in room video system. We have seen the start of things to come with Logitech last week launching there    Logitech ConferenceCam CC3000e.

So follow my blog and I will share what I find with you whilst at ISE.

I will also be keeping you abreast of what’s new in the collaboration space, which as a technology solution is one of the fast growing within the corporate arena.
