As economies start to open up, employers are slowly beginning to reopen their offices and resume normal operations. However, many are realizing that when it comes to how, where, and when their employees work, “normal” may be a thing of the past. With higher demand for hybrid work model, workspaces are being revamped. This panel will focus on how the workspace has changed and how it is going to affect demand? It also explores how the changes is going to affect design and how AV can evolve to integrate tech and space.

When it comes to dealing with the effects of the pandemic in education, there have been no hard and fast rules. Different organisations have responded to the crisis in different ways according to their needs. As school life returns to normal when students begin to return to classrooms, we discuss the need for Hybrid Learning and discuss if this model of instruction can continue beyond the end of the pandemic. Hear about the advantages of this learning model from different institutions and how improvements in technology can allow this model to continue well into the future.

Control rooms and command centres are continuously evolving and adapting to support the needs of modern organizations. This session discusses how technology advancements are needed in the Control Room, without compromising on security. We will look at the future of control rooms and the evolving technologies that are raising security concerns in this environment. We will discuss how the industry is overcoming this issue and how we will continue to overcome this issue as Networking and IT are now an integral part of Control Rooms.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #BreakTheBias – a recognition that gender bias still exists in society, workplaces, and even subconsciously in many minds. In this session, our panelist get together to talk about ways for leaders and organsiations to create better conditions to break the bias in workplaces, including how to spot their own bias and what can they do about it. We hope to inspire more people to make (or keep making) the change and feel able to challenge bias when they experience it so that together we can move towards a more diverse, equitable and inclusive world, where difference is celebrated.


In this extraordinary time for business, supply chain is operating in an extremely dynamic environment. The scale of the impact from Covid 19 eclipses most supply chain challenges seen before. Responding to this challenge, has highlighted the need to adopt agile ways of working to cope with uncertainty. In this panel discussion, we address the challenges and issues that the AV industry is faced with and the future outlook. We discuss how the challenge impacts businesses and designs, and in turn, changes thinking and operational needs. In a world that is uncertain, how they find some form of certainty in their business and design.

Faculty are SMEs in their fields but do not always have a complete understanding of the ins and outs of the technology that can be utilized to enhance the learning experience, be it in person or remote. What role do AV professionals play in assisting these stakeholders in designing the “classroom” experience? Has this role evolved given the changes to the classroom that have come with COVID-19?

This presentation talks about the evolution of video surveillance, IP audio and analytics through history and how the three can work together seamlessly as an integrated end-to-end solution today.

There is a high demand for good quality audio pick-up for all lecture and classroom teaching spaces. How do you hear the presenter, but can also any questions and discussion from students in the room and remote? Explore new technologies and creative solutions for clear audio in learning applications.

Digital transformation remains an untapped potential. Collaboration and unified communications technology are a critical part of business plans now and in the future to support distributed and hybrid teams, particularly as these needs have shifted post-COVID. To effectively bring hybrid teams together, companies and organizations will need to invest in new technology to support evolving workspaces. This session discusses examples of successful case studies leveraging collaboration technology, the technological and installation approach, and the results – and what integrators need to know about trends in collaboration today, and how the latest technology can be bundled and used when designing meeting, huddle or conference room spaces to fit the rapidly-evolving needs that enterprises face today.

Traditional methods and strategies for securing IT assets are not as effective within environments that contain devices like smart TVs, touch screens, cameras, AV-over-IP systems, microphones, speakers, sound masking devices, digital assistants, room sensors, and the like. And because an organization’s cyber resiliency is only as good as its weakest link, equal efforts must be made to secure these new types of devices and networks. This session covers several cybersecurity considerations for audiovisual environments, including the most common vulnerabilities and strategies on how to manage them. Topics covered include the importance of network discovery and continuous monitoring, asset identification, risk assessment, security configuration management, and tracking network media. Attendees will gain practical working knowledge on how to reduce the cyber risk from IoT, AV, and Workplace Technology and how to handle a cyber-attack.

Cybersecurity is critical, but on-premises security is a concern for clients in every business sector you work with. These concerns include the physical safety of customers and employees, the security of valuable goods displayed or stored, and the safety of equipment and even information that can be discovered and physically removed. How can AV help create a safe environment? What do we need to know about AV and security?

In-person and remote collaboration are just different…right? In this session, a panel of the foremost manufacturers and service providers will identify the hardest elements of in-person collaboration to replicate when working with remote collaborators, as well as the elements of remote collaboration that are superior, and hard to replicate in person. We’ll discuss the creative solutions deployed over the past 18 months that make the most important aspects of collaboration accessible to all participants in all contexts and how to reduce the learning curve associated with transferring a collaborative skill from one context to another.

There is no one perfect audio network protocol for every application. The past decade has seen Audinate’s Dante, Avnu Alliance’s Milan, and Audio Engineering Society’s AES67 all rise to maturity – and now, IPMX has entered the field as well, opening new pathways to interoperability. Each of these protocols originated in a different sector of the market, their development informed by different use cases and requirements. In this panel session, experts who have worked with these protocols will discuss their intents, strengths, and technical implementation. We’ll also discuss future outlook, including how companies and organizations can work together to support openness, interoperability, and ultimately network convergence.

Bad conferencing audio predates COVID, and with how radically social interactions have changed over the past year, bad audio is guaranteed to continue after COVID unless systems are adapted to customers’ new needs. Join this moderated panel discussion for practical tips on how to improve both virtual and in-person audio experiences in a masked and socially distanced world.
