Opening Forum: The State of the AV Industry
Tuesday 27 August
With a rapidly evolving technology landscape, it’s a dynamic and exciting time to be part of the AV industry, especially when you consider the diversity offered across the Asia Pacific markets. So how does the Australian and New Zealand pro-AV industry stack up against other international markets? With demand for AV over IP and new opportunities opening up in streaming and cloud-based technologies on a global scale, is our local market adopting innovation and new technologies in line with our neighbours? And what should we be looking out for in the future?

The future of AV Design: A people first approach
Tuesday 27 August
Room designs and installs haven’t changed in 25 years. Sure, the devices and hardware have made significant advances in that time. But, the function of the rooms hasn’t changed. But it’s about to. And, it’s not because we’re moving everything to AV-over-IP or because of more “all-in-one” gear solutions. People have changed. Things have changed. Tech has changed. Now, AV design needs to change. It’s important to start thinking about AV design and installation from a people-first approach. Why? Well, have you realized that most Millennials and Gen-Z don’t communicate the way we do? And, this maters as Millennials are rapidly moving into decision-making roles that will affect the way we design, integrate and use technology; and Generation-Z is right behind them – as the first Gen-Z generation of students will graduate from college in 2021. Join Gary Kayye and learn how you can add some simple functionality to accommodate this new generation of multi-tasking client.

Best practice for audio design and installation within large venues
Wednesday 28 August
Designing audio systems in large venues to meet extremely high-performance criteria is not an easy process. Attending this Live session will enlighten you on the design process, the use of predictive acoustic modelling software and many of the pitfalls that may arise in a project.

Developments in AV over IP
Thursday 29 August
AV over IP continues to mature. It’s gained preference over matrix switch based distribution including SDI in the broadcast and post-production space, and HDBaseT or native HDMI in commercial and residential. But there’s many approaches, all of which balance image quality, compression and network speed. In this panel we’ll discuss the pros and cons, use cases and technology roadmap for AV over IP.

This year visitors to Integrate have the choice of three paid education packages – one day pass $140, Two day pass $240, three day pass $280, plus a range of bespoke networking opportunities, free tours and audio demos. To view the full program click here.
