Breakout Sessions:

Room 360: Joseph Cornwall: "USB for AV Applications"

If it says "interactive" you can bet that USB is being leveraged. From interactive white boards to touch-surface flat panel displays and interactive projectors, they all feature USB connectivity as a core technology. Learn to specify, integrate and troubleshoot USB technology, including a deep understanding of how these systems work and why they might fail. This class will include analysis of USB installation performance from the perspective of connectivity "tiers" and power "quanta." We will focus on USB 1.1 and 2.0 technology, but a full introduction to USB 3.1gen1 solutions will be included. If you are involved in the integration of interactive devices in to A/V design, you need to attend this presentation. Your future success depends on it.

Room 361: Tom Kehr: "Assessing Network Readiness for AV Systems"

More and more audiovisual systems rely on network infrastructure. What does that infrastructure look like and how is it different? What testing is expected? This session will explore those differences. Objectives:

  • -Contrast IT and AV design
  • -Examine physical IT topology
  • -Identify acceptable IT terminations
  • -Examine testing methods

Room 240: Tony Strong: "ADA Compliance for Public Venues: Who Needs It and Why?"

Facility access is more than just wheelchair ramps and brail signage: It includes equal access to facilities, technology and equal access to information. Hearing Assistance is also part of the way we access information and access technology for facilities management with regard to the ADA. This course will cover:

-ADA compliance for Assisted Listening: Who needs it, why it’s important, and what happens if we get caught without it?

-What about those Hearing Aids?: Changing technology for Induction Loops systems… Who needs them, why to have them, and how to know the difference

-What about Wi-Fi for public spaces?: Where it works and where it doesn't

10:30-11:00 Break - Exhibit Hall
11:00-12:00

Breakout Sessions:

Room 360: Joseph Cornwall: "UHDBaseT Deep Dive Technology Exploration"

This presentation is the next step after Digital Video at Length - Successfully Extending Uncompressed Digital Video. We'll continue the discussion about uncompressed digital video extension technologies with an in-depth look into the newest IEEE standard, HDBaseT. We will look very carefully at the operating parameters of HDBT technology including a review of PAM16, eye patterns and the digital payload. We will explore RFI and EMI in the installation environment and present solutions that help mitigate the challenges of noisy commercial environments. This presentation will look at HDBaseT 5-Play features and will carefully review HDBaseT Lite, HDBaseT, and Valens Colligo HDBaseT optical solutions. If you need to come up to speed on all things HDBaseT to make a good design, installation or purchase decision, this is the presentation you've been waiting for.

Room 361: Jason Dovel: "Dispelling the Top 10 Networked AV Myths"

Room 240: Info Coming Soon

1:00-1:30 Break - Exhibit Hall
1:30-2:30

Breakout Sessions:

Room 360: Joseph Cornwall: "BYOD Signals and Connectivity - Integrating Mobile Devices with Fixed AV Systems"

Integrating portable technology such as smartphones, tablets, phablets, and convertible devices into fixed AV systems is a daunting task, but one that is central to success in spaces as diverse as huddle rooms, classrooms, meeting rooms and university lecture halls. Recent studies demonstrate that a large and growing percentage of workers and students are using their own technology at work and in school. Managing consumer crossover tech is a top priority for IT leaders and A/V designers. You need answers. Which connectivity solutions really work? What emerging technologies must be considered for new designs and updates? Where will this revolution take us? You'll find answers to these questions and more in this exciting presentation.

Room 361: Tom Kehr: "Basic Acoustics and Quantifying Background Noise"

"How does the room sound?" "What did they say?" Discover and identify basic concepts in room acoustics as well as how to quantify background noise levels in relation to intelligibility. You will differentiate different wavelengths at different frequencies, examine how reflections relate to intelligibility, describe how sound energy interacts with boundaries. You will also assess room modes, describe and compare different ways to quantify background noise levels, and specify an appropriate background noise level criteria appropriate for a room's usage.

Room 240: Tony Strong: "Wi-Fi Solutions for Public Spaces: The Revolution of the Smart Phone for Assistive Listening and Language Interpretation"

2:30-3:00
