February 2019 marked the biggest and best Integrated Systems Europe yet, with a record 81,286 attendees and over 1,300 exhibitors, which included our own debut appearance. It was thrilling to be able to exhibit alongside some of the most well-known names in the AV industry, which included the likes of Epson, Bang and Olufsen, Panasonic, Sony, and many more. The four-day show more than delivered on its promise of a complete and utter audio and visual spectacle – from Hall to Hall, walls of enormous screens, titanic speakers, interactive displays, and ground-breaking technologies amazed and astonished visitors from the moment they stepped through the door.
Spotlight on our stand
Our own stand successfully captured the imaginations of many – our unique range of attractive compact and rackmount PCs took centre stage while a feature wall dedicated to our latest Intel-based product, the Fanless NUC, allowed visitors to see its impressive capabilities in action as it powered our 60” TV screen. If you happened to stop by our stand at ISE, you will have no doubt also seen our Pick ‘N’ Mix wall – something which proved very popular among AV and digital professionals! We were really pleased with the outcome of our first time exhibiting at the event, and wanted to extend our thanks to everyone who took the time to visit us.
Ready for our close-up
While at ISE, we were delighted to find out that two of our newest products – the Fanless NUC and the Bantam – had both featured in separate editions of the ISE Daily, the event’s main magazine. We also spent some time with AV Magazine, both at their annual cocktail party, and in front of their cameras filming for AVTV! Our very own director, Chris Hollidge, was interviewed to reveal his insights into why our products are such a great fit for AV integrators and what developments we have on the horizon. Watch the final cut here.
Things that made us go ‘wow’
ISE never fails to impress us, and this year was no different. We were blown away by LG’s OLED Falls, an absolutely stunning display of AV magic, as well as Epson’s super-cool Epson Vortex, their interactive projected tunnel application. The best by far, however, was Sony’s gigantic Crystal LED screen. 9.5 meters wide, the screen was so high-definition that for a moment we believed we were actually witnessing a live carnival. It stopped us all in our tracks.
Bring on 2020
We had an incredible time in Amsterdam, and are really looking forward to doing it all again next year. We’re already full to the brim with ideas for our future stand and have booked our place at the show in readiness, so if you missed us this time around, there’s always 2020!
