ISE 2020 Roundup

Re-posted: March 20


Integrated Systems Europe is the world’s largest exhibition for AV and systems integration. The show contained a full professional development programme supported by our association co-owners AVIXA and CEDIA, and our biggest conference programme ever.

We bid farewell to Amsterdam as ISE 2020 concluded the last show at the beautiful capital of Netherlands (Barcelona, we're coming!). Neatly arranged zones spanning over 15 halls meant that ESCO's visit has to be thoughtfully planned to maximise our 2 days there. Some of our valued partners like Crestron, Microsoft, CreateLED, Bose, Barco and Shure just to name a few, showcased several new solutions, with some even displaying prototypes of un-released products.

A significant shift towards a standard, simplified and scalable environment is clear at this show where we see manufacturers stepping into solutions not from their flagship line of products. While this presents competition amongst the big boys, it also signifies a united stance as the industry steps into the future of collaboration.

After speaking with Michael Natividad and Gisselle Balintong from ESCO Philippines, we have specially curated these top 9 most significant solutions to keep an eye out on this year:


#1 Amina Technologies


Using VPT (Vibrational Panel Technology), Amina has been able to take the common loudspeaker design and replace the cone with a flat panel. Instead of moving forwards and backwards visibly like a typical cone design, a VPT panel uses small vibrations to generate sound which can be heard but not seen. This allows for seamless integration of a loudspeaker into any wall, ceiling or flat decorative panel with zero visual impact.


With a range of different construction methods and finishing techniques globally, Amina have two core-technologies to allow integration of invisible loudspeakers into any room.




#2 Barco ClickShare Conference


Now, we know what you're thinking, but this is a complete separate solution from the ClickShare we have all come to love.


ClickShare Conference connects wirelessly to your meeting room equipment for more immersive meetings. In less than 7 seconds you conference, collaborate and click from your own device, with your preferred conference tool.


Well, the promise of being able to connect to a conference in just 7 seconds is definitely a plus point for us, don't you agree?
