Day 1 AVIXA FlashTracks

Tuesday 27 August 2019

How many meetings have you attended where you can't read what's on the screen? It's a bad experience. It's frustrating. It makes us all look bad. But not anymore. The science has caught up to the real-life scenarios. Display Image Size for 2D Content in Audiovisual Systems (DISCAS) is scalable and adaptable. And now, you can leave the math to the calculator. Understand what DISCAS is and how it is applied. In this session we will have a quick breakdown of the standard, the application of the standard, and why it is important to AV professionals.


Wireshark is a free and open-source tool for inspecting packets as they pass through the network. It's a great way to learn about network technologies, and an indispensable tool for anyone working with AV control systems. In this session we'll take tour of the Wireshark software, look at a variety of use cases where packet analysis might be useful, and finally use Wireshark to observe what happens on the wire when we send a seemingly straightforward AV control message.

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." - Steve Jobs.
In this session we will touch on what user centered design is about and some of the principles involved in making a good user experience.


Power over HDBaseT (PoH) is the norm in most digital AV systems today. But how well will the cabling infrastructure - originally designed for just electronic data transmission - support the constant heavy current loads of PoH, historically deployed over power cables? What if the cabling isn’t up to the task and fails at a crucial time? Who would be accountable from a legal perspective in the event of a camera, digital signage or medical imaging system not functioning, especially where there is considerable resultant loss? Would it be the business owner, the building owner, the integrator/installer, the cabler, the equipment supplier? Most likely all of them would be partially accountable under subrogation. So integrator/installer/cabler would incur some liability in the claim. Which begs the Q – what should AV integrators/installers/cablers do to protect themselves from such liabilities, as more and more PoH gear is being deployed over their infrastructure?


Security is paramount for today' s AV systems as hackers have been penetrating our market looking for new targets. There is a public search engine which crawls the Internet just looking for devices being exposed to the public. AV integrators sometimes don' t even know that their devices are publicly accessible, leaving the potential for their products to be hacked from anywhere in the world. Join this session to look at how hackers find a way into your AV systems.

ABOUT THE


How many times have you walked into a room and heard the 'hiss' of an amplifier that has not been set up properly? In this session, we will examine how to properly optimize your amplifier for the environment and optimize your signal to noise ratio.
