ISE Day 2

Well, it is 4:30pm here in a rainy, windswept Amsterdam, and I’m just winding up my second day here at ISE. The show is still open, but I’ve beaten the massive crowd for a taxi, got my blank receipt (there are no IRS subscribers that I know of) and am sitting down to edit my pictures and interviews for the day into a special edition of “the Week”, on rAVe Radio. It will be posted in a few hours, along with hundreds more live videos that the amazing rAVe crew has shot today. I refer to this crew as “The Red Bull Set”, and nobody who didn’t have their energy level and enthusiasm could possibly accomplish what they’re doing today – which is essentially to bring you an entire tradeshow, the largest of its type in the world, by doing booth videos everywhere, getting demonstrations by experts of all the new gear. Seriously, I’m biased, of course… but you STILL have to check out This crew is really here to show our industry what can be done with new media coverage of a big, complex event.

I spoke with some great folks at Christie, AMX  and Cisco, and I’m going to bring you some of the highlights of those discussions over the next couple of shows. I also spoke with Scott Wills, Director of International Education and Member Services for InfoComm International, about the training being offered, the partnership with Cedia, and the show itself.
