ISE 2015

AV is 'On the Rise Globally'

Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2015, 10-12 Feb. at the Amsterdam RAI, attracted 59,350 attendees from across the globe, including the Asia & Oceania region. That is a 16 percent increase from the previous year, which bodes well for organizers' plans to add an extra day to the 2016 show. ISE is co-owned by InfoComm International® and CEDIA.

At ISE, InfoComm began offering guest memberships to show AV professionals the benefits of joining the global trade association. Nearly 1,200 individuals took advantage. "Our industry is on the rise globally," said David Labuskes, CTS®, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm. "Nothing reflects that trend more succinctly than the continued growth of ISE and of our association’s membership internationally."

Read the news and check in with the official ISE Daily for everything that happened in Amsterdam.

EE Award - ISE

Electronics & Engineering Takes Home InAVation Award

InfoComm member Electronics & Engineering (E&E) PTE Ltd. was awarded Most InAVative International Project at this month's InAVation Awards, held during Integrated Systems Europe. David Labuskes, CTS®, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm, presented the award to Joe Fong, Deputy Managing Director of E&E at a ceremony held at Amsterdam's Gashouder. The award was for E&E's integration work at the Singapore Sports Hub, located on a 35-hectare site in Kallang, near central Singapore.

"This award is especially rewarding because it showcases the continued perseverance, reliability and credibility of our company and the good relations that we have fostered with our partners over the years," said Ronald Goh, Managing Director of E&E.


Webinars for the India Market — and the World

India Group

Last year, InfoComm started an India Advisory Group to help develop training opportunities designed specifically to the needs of AV professionals in that market. The most recent fruits of that cooperation begin in March, with a four-part online webinar series on topics requested by the India advisory group, although AV pros worldwide can join and learn.

On 4 March, 18:00 Mumbai time, InfoComm Staff Instructor Andre LeJeune, CTS, will teach How to Conduct and Document a Needs Analysis to online participants. At the end of the webinar, guest speaker Mustafa I. Rampurawala, CTS, from Solutions India Systems Ltd, will share an in-country perspective. Then on 18 March, at 18:00 Mumbai time, InfoComm Senior Staff Instructor Tom Kehr, CTS-D, CTS-I, will teach How to Write a Program Report. At the end of the second webinar, guest speaker Narendra Naidu from Rhino Engineers Pvt Ltd. will offer extra insight.

The two March webinars will be followed in November by two more topics suggested by the India advisory group: Wiring a Rack and AV Termination Library. Registration for the November webinars will open soon. In the meantime, make sure you plan to attend InfoComm India, 1-3 Sept.

UCC Advice Almost Everyone Ignores

When it comes to setting up an AV collaboration system, many people forget the basics. Like the fact that a webcam is rarely a good solution in a conference room setting. And if setting up a collaboration system has its pitfalls, so does using one. InfoComm All Voices blogger and Dimension Data Principal Consultant David Danto offers advice for designing collaboration systems that you ignore at your peril.

Message From the Directors

Dear Friends,

Here is an urgent update for our colleagues in India: The three-day class Networked AV Systems, to be held in Bangalore this week, is almost sold out. If you still want to attend, contact Country Manager Gaurab Majumdar at the email address below.

Why the urgent update? Because sell-out classes have become regular occurrences in certain regions of the world and we want to make sure everyone has a chance to take advantage of InfoComm International® training and events. Earlier this month, we held CTS Prep in Bangalore and it was over capacity.

So our message is two-fold. First, thank you for enthusiastically supporting InfoComm and the AV industry in your region of the world. And second, always keep your eyes open for opportunities to connect with InfoComm, whether it’s in a class or at a networking event. When the opportunities present themselves, register early — it is the best way to guarantee your participation in these high-demand events.
