As the Audio Visual Specialist at CMS Distribution, Nathaniel has experience and knowledge in the ever-evolving world of AV technology. In this blog post, he shares his thoughts on some of the biggest AV developments he saw at the recent ISE show and why it's an important event for both CMS and its customers.
LED Video Walls and New Aspect Ratios in Video Conferencing Panels
According to Nathaniel, the two key technology areas that were showcased at ISE were LED video walls and new aspect ratios in video conferencing panels. LED video walls are becoming increasingly popular due to their modular design and scalability, and they are now used in a wide range of applications, including reception areas, outside advertising, and video conferencing solutions in meeting rooms. The reduction in cost and the development of the technology have also made LED walls more accessible to organisations.
The second area that Nathaniel highlighted was the use of new aspect ratios in video conferencing panels. Many vendors at ISE showcased panels with a 21 by 9 aspect ratio, and with big developments coming across in Microsoft teams to make it more inclusive and more interactive, this change in aspect ratio allows for a lot more information to be displayed on the screen and for users to have a more complete view of everyone in the meeting room, whether they are in the room or logging in remotely.
Excitement for the Future of AV Technology
Nathaniel is excited about the rapid growth and development of the AV industry and how technology is constantly adapting to meet the changing needs of organisations and individuals. He notes the rise of Microsoft Teams as a video conferencing platform is changing the way that we collaborate together as individuals and as teams. He also highlights the advancements in video cameras and artificial intelligence to capture as much information as possible during meetings and presentations.
The Importance of ISE for CMS and its Customers
ISE is a great platform for CMS and its customers, according to Nathaniel. It provides a unique opportunity for vendors, resellers, and end-users to come together in one place to touch and feel the latest and greatest technology. ISE gives CMS a chance to showcase the updates from its key vendors and keep its customers ahead of the curve with the latest trends. It also allows CMS to bring together all of its resources as a European entity and to host customers from all over the world.
In conclusion, ISE is an important event for both CMS and its customers, providing a platform to showcase new technology, keep up to date with the latest trends, and bring everyone together in one place. The AV industry is one of the fastest growing technology areas globally, and ISE provides a unique opportunity to see and experience the latest developments in this exciting and ever-evolving field.
