The unmissable event for deepening your knowledge in professional
and installed audioREGISTER

AudioForum, organized by Connessioni in cooperation with Integrated Systems Europe, is a full day educational event dedicated to audio professionals, systems integrators, installers. At its eight edition, AudioForum’s aim is also to gather the audio community and the systems integration industry, that so many aspects have in common, under the same roof. To share views, discussing, and building a new business together.
AudioForum program covers the "hot" topics in the audio market, speakers will be qualified professionals and consultants. AudioForum@ISE2016 will present: Theories, technologies, legends and (true and false) myths about audio. It will therefore be an opportunity to put the record straight, to learn about the background, to explore how much hearsay is still circulating; but also for discussion, along with the speakers, experts, colleagues who will be presenting their own legends and myths, and to understand when they are truly that - legends and myths

AudioForum will be again at ISE for its 9th edition, after the ones held in Milan (2013, 2014 and 2015, during SIEC Convention), Amsterdam (ISE 2014 and 2015), Mumbai (InfoComm India 2014 and 2015) and Beijing (InfoComm China 2015).

Who should participate

AudioForum@ISE2016 is dedicated to consultants, sound designers, system integrators, installers, companies and anyone interested in knowing more about the latest audio technologies

Why participating

At AudioForum@ISE you will have the unique opportunity to learn, but also discuss, some of the "hot topics" in audio technologies, in a less “academic” and more vivid format. It will be also an important opportunity of networking, for sharing ideas, discussing new models, and building future business

When and Where

AudioForum@ISE will take place on the 8th February, the ISE eve, from 10 am to 5 pm. Room G001/G002 at Amsterdam RAI

Audio and sound diffusion are complex issues: from a technical point of view, because they are intrinsically linked to physics and maths, and from a conceptual point of view, because they require design capabilities, knowledge and study. But also because the result, or rather, the listening, derives from a subjective point of view. All aspects which make the life of a sound engineer and system’s integrator, rather complicated. In this 9th edition of AudioForum, we will therefore be focussing on some theories, technologies, legends and myths, true or false, to discuss and debunk. Lastly, don’t miss the opportunity to ask… about everything you have never dared to ask about, at least up to now. AudioForum@ISE2016 will therefore be an opportunity to put the record straight, to learn about the background, to explore how much hearsay is still circulating; but also for discussion, along with the speakers, experts, colleagues who will be presenting their own legends and myths, and to understand when they are truly that – legends and myths.

10,30 Introduction and Welcome to Delegates
10,45-11,30
Loudspeakers, components and systems for small and large environments:

The discovery of false myths  and relevant guidelines for a proper design. That is when low frequencies are manageable and line array is not the remedy for all problems

FIR and IIR filters:

they can now be found in every datasheet and in every discussion between colleagues. In addition to better understanding what it is about, we will speak about their use, and ab-use

Beam steering with FIR filters optimization

Beam steerable loudspeakers have been around for many years, but the advent of modern DSP is changing the approach to this technique. Modern DSP can load complex FIR filters that allow manipulating the amplitude and the phase of each section of a line array with outstanding precision. Is this the future of sound reinforcement?

13,00-14,00 Lunch
Afternoon Seminar
14,00-14,45
Datasheets, (un)acknowledged

How is the equipment measured, and what should a datasheet contain? Are we certain that we know how to interpret it and find what we really need in it?

Updates from audio uncompressed transportation protocols:

after some years, some of them have become standard de facto, others have only partially reached the goals. State of the art, trends and perspectives.

ISE – Integrates Systems Europe
ISE – Integrates Systems Europe

The event was launched in 2004 to fulfill the need for a pan-European forum for the emerging markets of professional AV and electronic systems integration. The show grew quickly to become the undisputed annual marketplace for these industries – a focus not only for doing business but also for networking, education and technological innovation. Always owned by not-for-profit trade associations, ISE has been a joint venture between InfoComm International and the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) since 2007.
