If you thought ISE was over, you just happened to be incorrect as on this episode of The AV Life, six of the people on the show were at ISE 2017 and they share the experiences here. The show begins of course with shoutouts to some of the great Twitter followers of @The_AVLife, and one of them makes that favorite Dutch waffle. Listen in.
After that the Crew begin discussion with the guests about that ISE experience leading off with Justin who talks about Aptovision BlueRiver NT+ AV signal distribution technology, as well as the new SDVoE Alliance – Software Defined Video over Ethernet – bringing leading companies in the space together around a standardized hardware and software platform. Justin tells all about the Alliance, along with the founding member companies.
Ian talks about Ihiji, a company that provides remote management for IP-enabled devices, helping integrators of the ‘Internet of Things’ to manage all client networks and IP devices without rolling a truck. Then, the guy who has already circled the globe before attending ISE, Mike Shinn tells us all about what he’s doing with Verrex as well as his and the company’s experience at ISE. Mike and the Crew also talk about that great party on the first day of the show – the Tweetup – which many attended. Mike then had to leave during the podcast to have important discussions with clients and world leaders, so he had to drop. Had to drop — listen for it.
And if that wasn’t enough – sometime midway through the show the new master of the Dark Arts in AV Paul Zielie joins in to talk about some of what Harman showed at ISE, as well as how many minutes he spent in the booth. Paul talked about education sessions he led along with panels he sat on, as well as one of the Networked Application Labs Defence Against The Dark Arts (he conducted a Network Traffic Analysis session as well). When Paul talks, people listen. At least when he wants them to.
Of course when you have people who really enjoy going to a great trade show and talking about it on a podcast, you get some good humor to go with the tech talk as well. And you find out why it’s recommended to bring two pairs of shoes (along with water bottles, etc.).
So – sit back, plug in, get ready to listen to an episode that highlights the great AV industry show (largest attendance ever!), and make sure you live…
The AV Life.
