New show features

Two more show features have recently been added to the ISE 2020 content programme. In Hall 14, the VR at ISE feature will contain two very different interactive virtual reality exhibits. Two Digital Projection Multiview VR systems will be demonstrated, each of which allows up to three people to view and interact with a stereoscopic 3D virtual model. Each person sees the object from their own viewpoint. The other part of the VR at ISE feature will be an immersive VR theme park ride. Designed and run by Lightspeed Design, this DepthQ VR attraction will take attendees on an interactive fantasy ride through aquatic environments. A spectacular projection mapping on the RAI’s Elicium building will delight ISE 2020 attendees and Amsterdam locals each evening of the show. The upper floors of the futuristic nine-storey building at the front of the exhibition centre will be transformed by the projection, specially created for this location. The projection will be produced by ISE and the RAI, supported by seven technology partners. Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, said: “I’m very pleased to acknowledge the role of AVIXA, CEDIA and our many content partners in producing such a compelling line-up for ISE 2020. Added to this, the Elicium projection mapping and the VR at ISE feature are two more opportunities for our attendees to ‘Learn. Discover. Be Inspired’.”

“‘Learn. Discover. Be Inspired’ is more than a tag line. For an AV professional, it must be at least a career plan, if not a life commitment,” said AVIXA Chief Executive Officer Dave Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD. “We are proud to have been part of the organising team that brings these brilliant leaders to the ISE stages and implore you to experience as much of them as you can while you’re there.” Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA Global President and CEO, said: “With the technology market continually evolving, it’s important for professional development to reflect this and stay ahead of change. We're thrilled to be able to contribute to ISE’s comprehensive professional development programme at ISE 2020, which provides attendees with full, varied and high-quality training across a range of industry topics taught by experts. Whatever the level or role of attendees within the industry, there’s something for everyone at ISE.” 

Details of ISE 2020’s professional development programme can be found on the ISE website at www.iseurope.org. Further details will be available later this month in RISE, the official magazine of ISE 2020; and the ISE 2020 Professional Development Guide.
