CEDIA unveils education plans for ISE 2019

CEDIA has announced that it is returning to Integrated Systems Europe 2019 with an extensive four-day education programme.

Sponsored by Samsung, CEDIA’s training programme for ISE 2019 is designed to allow technology integrators and industry professionals to learn new skills, discover emerging technologies, and be inspired for business growth and success.

Home Cinema Design Masterclass

Brand new for ISE 2019 will be a full-day Home Cinema Design Masterclass on Monday 4 February, taught by the three renowned experts in the field - Joel Silver, Anthony Grimani, and Theo Kalomirakis. Taking place the day before the main ISE show floor opens, the masterclass will help delegates learn the tools of high-performance home cinema design and maximise their knowledge in the strongest revenue generating sector of the industry. It will feature three ‘deep dive’ sessions focused on video performance, advanced audio techniques, and the cinema environment.

The session will round out with a panel Questions & Answer session where students will have the rare opportunity to submit questions on any aspect of home cinema design. All attendees will leave the session with a free one-month trial (worth €85) of The CEDIA Designer’s Home Cinema Pro level tool.

The Home Cinema Design masterclass is available to book now at an exclusive early bird rate of €210 for members and €280 for non-members, available until Tuesday 8 January, 2019.

Once again, CEDIA will bring a full catalogue of technical courses, including hands-on workshops, deep dives into subjects such as acoustic calibration and design, and a host of other courses helping to inform and improve integration expertise.

To support integrators in preparing for the future, CEDIA will present a number of emerging trends courses. These training sessions will look at predictions for the next big drivers likely to transform the market in a time of increasing change. From advanced display technology, to AR and VR, these courses will leave attendees equipped to plan for the future.

Visitors can also take advantage of multiple training sessions designed to ensure that their business is in the best shape to succeed now and in the future. CEDIA’s business-focused courses will explore how companies can put the right processes in place and apply best practice.

‘All Access’ training

Both CEDIA members and non-members can purchase a CEDIA All Access Training Pass which gives unlimited entry to CEDIA education sessions during the show (excluding Monday’s Home Cinema Design Masterclass). The All Access Training Pass is available for pre-booking at an exclusive Early Bird rate of €227.50 for members and €280 for non-members until 8 January 2019. Alternatively, individual courses can be booked on an à la carte basis for those with more limited time.

Meanwhile, on the CEDIA booth, CEDIA Talks will return to ISE 2019, designed to introduce attendees to new disruptive technologies and challenge ways of thinking. Presented by industry thought leaders, these free, 20-minute sessions are hosted on the CEDIA booth (1-E10, 1-E20) every day of the show with no need to book in advance.

“Whatever your level and skillset within the industry, there will be something for everyone at ISE 2019,” comments Thomas Darling, CEDIA’s SVP of development and education. “From core technical courses and business success training to the latest insights on emerging trends, our programme will cover all the bases for delegates in attendance. ISE is the perfect destination to enhance your industry knowledge, with so much great training in one place for just one week.”

New for ISE 2019, the Main Stage will also host free-to-attend educational and thought leadership presentations, produced by CEDIA, ISE and AVIXA. Winners of 2018 EMEA CEDIA Awards will be partnering up with brand representatives to talk through their award-winning projects and explain how they did it as part of CEDIA’s involvement. The 20-minute sessions will see the integrator explain the challenges they faced and how they overcame these to deliver an award-winning system.
