- Collaboration as part of the Digital Transformation
on Tuesday, 27 August
Digital Transformation is redefining the way people work every day. This includes transforming the role of the traditional office into digital workplaces. The office space is now becoming a destination where people, technology and space come together. Digital workspaces should enable an experience — a destination that people are drawn to. This translates into the creation of places where technology meets physical space to create the digital workplace and supports environments that focus on the user experience, inspire innovation and creativity, support collaboration, enhance client and team engagement and interaction.

- An Unbiased Explanation of AV-over-IP (with rAVe founder Gary Kayye)
on Thursday, 29 August
AV over IP continues to mature. It’s gained preference over matrix switch based distribution including SDI in the broadcast and post-production space, and HDBaseT or native HDMI in commercial and residential. But there’s many approaches, all of which balance image quality, compression and network speed. In this panel we’ll discuss the pros and cons, use cases and technology roadmap for AV over IP.
Visitors to Integrate have the choice of three paid education packages — a one-day pass ($140), two-day pass ($240) or three day pass ($280), plus a range of bespoke networking opportunities, free tours and audio demos. To view the full program click here.
