Dinesh Paliwal, Chairman, President and CEO of HARMAN, will hold a keynote on the topic of Smart Audio at this year's IFA. On Saturday, September 5, 2015, at 10:30 – 11:15 a.m. CEST he will speak on what possibilities the era of intelligent networking will open up for the audio industry in his speech entitled “Smart Audio: The playground has opened for new business connections”. Furthermore, Dinesh Paliwal will discuss what companies must do to take advantage of the smart audio trend. Audio devices are playing an increasingly important role in the smart revolution. More and more devices are connected without any limitations at home and outdoors. Whether it’s at home, in the car or on the go, audio devices are taking over both input and output for permanently installed systems and mobile devices, and are no longer restricted to pure audio playback and control. Instead, they also allow users to access content from the Internet via apps. “Audio manufacturers and developers should focus on more than sound when introducing products to the market,” says Paliwal. “Smart audio has enormous potential to offer exciting new functionalities in the interconnected world. It’s time to realize the power of these technologies, and I am looking forward to exploring this topic more at IFA,” he added.
