Read This First: How to Use the rAVe ISE 2014 MicroSite

raveradio-0114The 2014 version of Integrated Systems Europe has come to a close, but our coverage here will live forever here — on this ISE 2014 microsite!

We have so much coverage — and there’s so much information on this ISE microsite that it can be overwhelming. So, please take moment to read this so we can familiarize you with what’s on this site.

First off, we have a media sponsor contract with ISE that allows us to do this site. So, we’re an official media partner to ISE. Our five sponsors funded this site and all the coverage on it — so visit them and, when you do see them in person, thank them. All eight have small banner ads on the right side of this site. We couldn’t do this without Barco, Christie, Cisco, NEC and Atlas Sound.

rave-late-0114This site is not intended to be a replacement for attending the show live — you can’t replace an experience like that. However, it’s meant to augment an attendance. In fact, we get much of our site traffic from ISE attendees who couldn’t see everything they wanted to see in the  three days of the show in Amsterdam and the rest come from people who wish they could attend and didn’t get to. Either way, you will find this show microsite helpful.

The home page is sort of an aggregate of a little of each of the coverage in one place – sort of a launch page. To the right of the HOME tab you will see the NEWS & BLOGS page — where you are actually reading this post. This is where we post all the blogs and news stories that we write — as well as commentary — written by our team of reporters on-site at the show (and when you click on (or hover over with your mouse) the tab header NEWS & BLOGS, you’ll see a section called PRESS RELEASES — that is where you can, literally, see news stories on every single product launched at ISE — yes, all of them). On the right of that, we bring you rAVe RADIO: iamsterdam-rave-0114These are all the PODCASTS we recorded LIVE from the show floor — over 15 of them this year! The tab next to this one is where we posted all 1,300 or so VIDEOS we shot at ISE. VIDEOS include every video we shot at ISE — every single one. We have them broken out by both product category as well as one-on-one interviews we conducted with an assortment of market leaders. Next to that, we have over 1,000 PHOTOS we shot during the ISE show. They include products and stands/booths.

We hope you find this microsite useful and productive. And, while using it, if you have ANY suggestions to make it better for future shows, just send us an email at — we do pay attention to your ideas!
