CEDIA and InfoComm

ISE co-owners InfoComm International and CEDIA are both offering a set of unique membership and training options for attendees at ISE 2015.

InfoComm International is offering all ISE 2015 attendees the chance to become a ‘Guest Member’ for the duration of the show, free of charge. Guest Membership entitles all who sign up to a range of benefits including free admission to all and any of 30 regular InfoComm education sessions, normally priced at €40 each. There are also discounts on special InfoComm events taking place during the show and complimentary access to the association’s Member Lounge.

Pre-registered ISE attendees can sign up online in advance for their Guest Membership, then simply visit the InfoComm Lounge at Stand 11-N100 for a Guest Member badge which will grant them access to all regular education sessions and the Lounge, as well as member pricing for special events. Those interested in post-show benefits should see a regional representative at the Lounge. Registration will also be possible on-site at Stand 11-N100.

Building on a successful show in 2014, CEDIA will be delivering an extensive training programme, incorporating several new courses at ISE 2015.

The aim of this year’s training programme 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 courses are already fully-booked, so make sure you register in advance to avoid disappointment.

Don’t forget, CEDIA members can get education FREE with their CEDIA Education Voucher. To redeem vouchers please contact education@cedia.co.uk

Two sessions which CEDIA is highlighting are as follows:

Introduction to Building Management Systems

Building Management Systems (or BMS) is a catch-all term that covers electronic controls used to control mechanical services in buildings; this is very common in commercial buildings, BMS is now increasingly being found in many high-end residential properties.

This course will explain what systems are typically covered by a BMS, and why there is a requirement for a dedicated specialist system, with its special HVAC functions and algorithms. It will cover the importance of energy management, and how the BMS can help with this. It will touch on typical interfacing techniques, and look at some of the complications and pitfalls of dealing with contractors who may be more familiar with systems in commercial buildings.

Introduction to KNX
Wednesday 11 February – 2:00 – 3:30, Room D202. Presenter: Scott Burgess, Ivory Egg UK
