Portland, OR (January 17, 2012)—The 2012 AV Networking Congress, aiming to bring together AV design consultants and pro audio manufacturers, will be held as an all day event on Tuesday 31 January at the Holiday Inn Amsterdam.
Manufacturers including Lab.gruppen, Peavey Commercial Audio, Bosch Communications Systems, Yamaha Commercial Audio, Audinate and ASL will host the day—a multi-session panel-based event, covering a range of installation application topics, including Voice Alarm and Evacuation systems, Stadia and large venues, digital media in Theatres and an introduction to the OCA (Open Control Architecture) Alliance – as well as a look at the evolution of digital audio transport, presented by Audinate’s CTO Aidan Williams.
Among the panel of independent consultants to take part in the panel discussions will be Sam Wise of Arup (UK), Richard Northwood of COMS (UK) and Martin Wunderlich (Wunderton) as well as key specialists in their field such as Peter Cox of Thames Audio and Scott George of Autograph Sound.
Northwood commented, “The combination of ISE and the AV Networking Congress is a winner for keeping up to date with the latest in AV and how to implement it in a robust manner. I’m looking forward to participating in a wide ranging event without manufacturer bias, that stimulates open discussion on the future of networked audio and control – which are fundamental topics for so many systems we do today.”
