Here Are the Best of ISE 2019 Awards – AV’s Only NOT-Pay-for-Play Awards

You can’t enter a product in them. And, you can’t ask us to nominate you.

And, you can’t get an award by advertising or sponsoring us or paying for it. There are NO award entry fees.

We sent reporters to EVERY booth/stand at ISE 2019 and we selected the TOP products in every possible product category for our 2019 Best of ISE Awards. No other publication — or entity for that matter — goes to every booth at the ISE show and sees every new product demo’d or launched at ISE in Amsterdam annually — so these are THE BEST of THE BEST.

So, if you are wondering which products were the best at ISE and outperformed the others in their respective categories, these are it: the 2019 Best of ISE Awards. And if you are a manufacturer who won an award, be proud! You were hand-selected by our editors and reporters after evaluating every new product shown at ISE in your product category. We didn’t just pick these “on the show floor” during the show or by using spec-sheets distributed prior to the show — we picked these by actually looking at each and every product and comparing them. In fact, this is why it took us an entire month to award these…

These are TRULY the BEST of ISE!

Finally, as the ISE show is really four shows in one — it’s a HomeAV show, a ProAV show, a digital signage show and rental & staging show — we’ve decided to separate the awards into different categories, based on their application. So, for 2019, there are six awards categories.

Overall Winners: This category of winners represent the best of the best at ISE 2019. These are the 28 best new products at ISE 2019 that work for any and every application of AV:

Conferencing, Collaboration & Meeting Rooms: The biggest trend in meeting rooms is collaboration and this includes both wired and wireless system, video, audio and far-site connectivity. This category of the Best of ISE products serves every aspect of the typical meeting room or huddle room space:

Network AV & Signal Distribution: This category includes both AV-over-IP products as well as other ways of getting signals from sources to displays and even control them:

Digital Signage & Public Spaces: One of the fastest growing segments of AV over the past half-dozen years or so has been digital signage. So, it makes sense for this to have its own category of award-winning products:

Rental, Staging & Live Events:  If you’re one of the 32,000 or so AV’ers in the rental, staging or live events markets, you’ll love this category of ISE products aimed specifically at making your job easier or adding to the wow-factor to your application:

Education and Installed Large Venue Products: These are, exactly as it’s titled, new products at ISE that were aimed specifically at the education and large venue (lecture halls and auditoriums as well as other large installed spaces) markets. So, if you design, sell or integrate AV technology aimed at the education segment of AV, you’ll want to check out these award-winning ISE products aimed at learning environments or giant rooms:
