3 – Clevertouch shows Enterprise Ecosystem for agile workspaces (Hall 13 D155)
This year at ISE, Clevertouch is launching the ‘Enterprise Ecosystem’, an all-one-solution designed for the agile workspace. A real-time collaborative platform that enables participants to work together seamlessly in an open environment no matter where they are located or what device they are using, whilst ensuring that the company’s underlying networks remain totally secure.
Connecting multiple users on a common platform is an essential goal for businesses today. More enterprise entities are deploying Unified Communications and BYOD concepts, using Skype for Business and other solutions, to enable users to overcome barriers to collaboration. Meeting spaces are evolving, with more huddle areas and open spaces for informal and unscheduled team meetings, requiring additional AV technology to connect people remotely. This way of working is becoming the norm – no longer do we need to book a meeting room or wait for availability – we can schedule a time and everyone simply logs-in from their touchscreen in the office, laptop, phone or tablet.
“Enabling employees to use collaborative technology should be simple and uncomplicated for everyone. Users should decide how their technology works 0 the technology shouldn’t dictate their path. Unlock content and data from individual devices, move it into a shared workspace so that everyone in the team can access it simultaneously, regardless of whether they’re in the office or on the other side of the world,” says Shaun Marklew, Chief Technologist at Clevertouch. The feature-rich ‘Enterprise Ecosystem’ comprises of video and voice conferencing, screen sharing and mirroring, file sharing, infinity whiteboarding, remote on-screen annotation, digital messaging, instant alerts, room and meeting booking system and enterprise-wide digital signage across any connected screen-based displays – connecting multiple users on a common platform.
The E-Cap from Clevertouch is the central hub of the ‘Enterprise Ecosystem’. The latest interactive display benefits from a blend of two technologies that combine IR technology and electro magnetic resonance. The two technologies have enabled Clevertouch to create an advanced, durable and lightweight display with outstanding touch accuracy and responsiveness, delivering the same user experience as a capacitive screen, but at a fraction of the cost.
4 -Yamaha UC showcases collaboration environment (Hall 11-F120 / 11-G120)
Attendees will be able to experience Yamaha UC’s line-up of purpose-built UC solutions that address the full range of collaboration use cases. “Clear, natural audio is fundamental to a satisfying and productive meeting, but as customers demand the flexibility to collaborate anywhere, integrators and technology managers are challenged with UC solutions that fit these environments,” said Philip Stanley, director of EMEA, Yamaha UC. “At ISE 2019, we’re showing how Yamaha UC solutions enhance the user experience. Visitors will see vignettes reflective of today’s meeting spaces, from the home office, an open office, and huddle room, all the way up to a large conference or multipurpose room and boardroom.”
Yamaha’s powerful UC solutions will be displayed in four distinct settings:
Home Office or Open Workspace
More and more people are meeting remotely or working wherever is most convenient, redefining users’ expectations and conferencing requirements. Yamaha UC will showcase the YVC-200 Portable USB + Bluetooth Speakerphone, designed to provide high-performance audio that goes everywhere with the user. The unit features an intelligent microphone and delivers full-duplex conversation without sound dropouts, even when multiple people are speaking at once. In addition, a powerful built-in speaker produces audio that sounds so natural, it feels as if every remote participant on the call is in the room.
Yamaha UC will showcase the Yamaha CS-700 Video Sound Collaboration System for huddle rooms. Ensuring the highest-quality user experience, it optimizes audio, video, and collaboration capabilities in a simple and smart wall-mounted unit that is easy to install and deploy. It features an adaptive beamforming microphone array for perfectly captured conversation; four Yamaha speaker elements to provide the highest degree of audio intelligibility; and a wide-angle HD camera for the far-end participants to see everyone in clear detail. In addition, the CS-700’s integrated network management system allows IT staff to deploy and remotely manage each unit from one location, increasing service response and efficiency.
Large Conference Room
Going beyond the traditional speakerphone, the Yamaha YVC-1000 conference phone enhances audio to achieve the best experience in medium to large conference spaces and multipurpose meeting rooms. It features a separate microphone and full-range speaker unit that can be placed close to the video display, so audio and video from the remote location blend naturally for easier, faster comprehension. Its plug-and-play simplicity and auto-tune setup also allow participants to get started quickly with audio optimised to the room conditions.
The use of UC applications is reaching into boardrooms, requiring equipment that can support these platforms while delivering reliable, high-quality audio that ensures effective communication. At ISE 2019, visitors will witness how Yamaha is solving this challenge with a ready-to-install professional audio system that enables participants to use their preferred UC application and collaborate with clarity while streamlining systems and installation efficiencies. The system comprises an eight-channel Revolabs Executive Elite wireless microphone package, two VXL1-16P Power over Ethernet (PoE), Dante-enabled speaker arrays with wall volume controller, a digital signal processor, a five-port PoE switch, Dante AVIO USB adapter, and cabling.

Panasonic has announced it will move its complete high brightness projection range to laser, with the discontinuation of the PT-DZ21K projector series, enabling lower maintenance and greater reliability in the rental and staging market.
Set to be discontinued in spring, the DZ21K introduced a new platform for 20,000 lumens and changed the projection world. Originally designed for the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in London, it changed the potential for the rental and staging events market, and helped Panasonic’s market share in the segment reach 80%, a mark it maintains today.1 Being half the size and half the weight of other products in its class enabled giant projection mappings like the Bucharest 555 celebrations in 2014, which featured 104 units or the Guinness World Record of Projection Mapping which saw 142 units used at the Moscow Circle of Lights festival in 2015.
Continuing this innovation, Panasonic introduced its first laser platform in 2014, and launched its flagship laser projector, the PT-RZ21K, at ISE in 2017, providing the same level of brightness of 20,000 lumens in the DZ21K’s original compact housing. Hermetically sealed laser modules mean the RZ21K provides non-interrupted projection for up to 20,000 hours. This provides greater reliability and colour uniformity for rental companies, reducing the maintenance burden and the total cost of ownership.
A reference model for large venue and rental projectors ever since its introduction, the RZ21K projectors was used to illuminate the Eiffel Tower in the ‘Japonismes 2018’ anniversary of 160 years of Franco-Japanese friendship. In addition, six RZ21K’s were used in the performance of ‘Guidizio Universale. Michelangelo and the secrets of the Sistine Chapel’, transporting audiences in to a 270 degree projection of the Sistine Chapel to display the artist’s famous works. The PT-DZ21K projector will be discontinued in March 2019, with the PT-RZ21K currently available for purchase.
