InfoComm focusing on AV/IT convergence19 May 2011
The organisation is to host three ‘Net-Centric AV’ roundtable events in the UK and Ireland over the next few weeks, commencing in Edinburgh on 24 May.
The events – which will also take place in Dublin (26 May) and London (7 June) – will present InfoComm’s perspective on the migration of audio-visual technology to the network, the implications for the AV industry today, and how AV professionals can ensure their businesses take advantage of this change.
The agenda will also include the findings of a Cross Industry Summit Summary Report compiled by InfoComm and CompTIA (the Computing Technology Industry Association), together with a brief InfoComm association update. After each roundtable there will be a drinks reception, providing an opportunity for delegates to network their peers.
Chris Lavelle (pictured), InfoComm regional manager, UK & Ireland, commented: “The migration of AV products and services onto data networks and the consequent convergence of the AV and IT industries is a major theme for InfoComm globally this year. We want to make our members aware of the challenges that lie ahead, while encouraging them to see this trend as an opportunity that is there to be exploited.
“Our roundtable events provide the ideal format for these discussions, giving us the chance to report our own research findings and analysis, while also giving our members a forum in which to share their own thoughts and experiences.”
Following the 24 May session at Edinburgh’s Ramada Mount Royal Hotel, the roundtable series will visit the Red Cow Moran Hotel, Dublin, two days later. The venue for the London Roundtable on 7 June will be the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, which is a co-sponsor of the event along with Kramer Electronics.
