The State of AV:
ISE 2023 Takeaways
This year’s Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) conference just ended, so let recap the major takeaways and how they can be applied to AV and Collaboration in 2023.
The RoomReady Set
The RoomReady Set offers a space-efficient design, allowing it to be mounted directly behind the TV. Its purpose is to provide a space-saving and centralized location for all AV equipment. It is available in five different sizes to accommodate various display and space need. The RoomReady Set is designed for AV equipment and the addition of an articulating mount offers easy access for maintenance and upgrades. With a professional and clean appearance, the RoomReady Set maintains the aesthetic of a space, while enhancing the overall AV Experience.
