Building on a successful show in 2014, CEDIA, joint venture partner of ISE, will be delivering an extensive training program, incorporating several new courses at ISE 2015.
The aim of this year’s training program is to educate attendees on the latest industry developments in short bite size sessions. With over twenty courses available, installers will walk away with a more in depth knowledge of technologies such as Atmos and Auro 3D sound, 4K Ultra HD and HDMI 2.0.
A number of new courses have been introduced this year. Here, the presenters provide you with reasons why you should attend these sessions.
- Atmos, Auro 3D & More: Object Based Audio from the Cinema to the Home Theatre – Tuesday 10 February, 2:00-3:30, Room D201.
Guy Singleton, Imagine This, UK: “Join me in my object based audio session and learn how to incorporate the newest audio formats from cinema into your home theater designs. We discuss the technical design detail and real world implementation of audio formats, including Atmos, Auro 3D and more, and look at how to confidently incorporate these exciting new formats into your own home theater designs.”
- Ecological Automation – The Basics of Energy – Wednesday 11 February – 9:15 – 10:45, Room D202.
Daniel Knight, Fibaro, UK: “The course focuses on providing installers and integrators the tools and knowledge to identify, monitor and actively manage the energy consumed in residential environments through the use of Smart Technologies. We’ll talk mostly about demand control, but touch on some exciting new developments in supply efficiency and sustainable energy harvesting.
Aside from learning about simple, easy to implement energy saving ideas for Connected Homes, delegates will see new market opportunities that can positively contribute to the bottom line of their businesses.”
- Introduction to Building Management Systems – Wednesday 11 February – 2:00 – 3:30, Room D201.
Dave Robinson, Sensible Heat, UK: “These days, custom installers are expected to be more than just AV specialists. They have to be the technological gatekeepers on many projects, providing a user-focused human interface for a wide range of disciplines. Perhaps one of the most complex and alien of these disciplines is the area covered by Building Management Systems (BMS) – the systems which control the mechanical and electrical services in the building, particularly the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) systems. So, how do we understand enough of the BMS world in order to be able to interface with it successfully, or maybe take responsibility for the supply of the BMS package?
This course will help you to understand some of the common issues and jargon terms used in the BMS world, and will aid you in being able to set limits to the scope of your involvement with BMS. We’ll explore why you need to use a separate specialist system to control some of these services, and look at the threat vs opportunity equation — you may not want to get involved with BMS, but if that’s what your customers want, can you afford not to?”
- Fifty First Dates – Finding Love for Your Brand Online – Thursday 12 February – 11:00 – 12:30, Room D201
Geoff Meads, Presto AV, UK: “If you’re confused by online marketing channels or don’t know how to co-ordinate your efforts then this session is for you! To build a loyal customer base we need to take a planned approach to online marketing. It’s a staged process that takes time
In this course we’ll look at taking a more organized approach to online marketing activities. We’ll discuss platforms, identity, activity and building a coordinated plan of action. Attendees can expect to leave with an outline plan for their own business. They will have a clear objective, a set of actionable tasks and methods for measuring success!”
