AVI-SPL is headed to New Orleans to join VCI Group’s second annual conference October 10-12. The three-day show will focus on technology trends in the conferencing and collaboration industry and feature sessions with AVI-SPL’s Mike Brandofino, John Vitale and Jim Kelly, including:
Industry Expert Panel
Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.
AVI-SPL’s Executive Vice President of Video Mike Brandofino will join a panel of five industry experts from Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Polycom, BT Conferencing and LifeSize. This unique opportunity offers attendees a chance to learn ideas and solutions that will help organizations improve operations and ask questions and exchange ideas directly with industry leaders.
Telepresence Values: The REAL Meaning of Telepresence/ Planning the Right Environment
Tuesday, Oct. 11, 3:20 p.m. to 4:10 p.m.
John Vitale, vice president of products for AVI-SPL, will partner with Theo Economides from GreenLine Emeritus Consulting to discuss the true meaning of telepresence. It used to be that “telepresence” meant only one thing – a huge, expensive, and amazing video conference system. Today that same term is applied, seemingly, to anything that has a camera and a screen and it’s causing a lot of confusion about the term in the process. The REAL meaning of telepresence is all about the quality of your experience while meeting someone virtually. In this session, Theo Economides will review the five values of telepresence and how to measure a system against them. John Vitale will talk about how to plan and create an environment which maximizes those values.
IPv6: What does it mean? Why do I care?
Wednesday, Oct. 12, 10:05 a.m. to 10:55 a.m.
The Internet just ran out of IP addresses! Sort of…Please remain calm. There is a solution but it involves a lot of coordination and changes globally. IPv6 has been around for a long time but what does it mean to AV, IT, and you? AVI-SPL’s Jim Kelly will discuss the details behind IPv6 and why you should be planning for the change.
Showcase Theater – AVI-SPL
Wednesday, Oct. 12, 1:30 p.m. to 1:50 p.m.
AVI-SPL’s John Vitale will present an overview of AVI-SPL’s solution for the creation, management and consumption of digital media content. From Digital Signage to IPad apps, digital media is far more than a traditional screen on the wall showing static images. Vitale will illustrate how you can capitalize on the content you have on traditional paper and make it come alive with Unify ME.
AVI-SPL will also be exhibiting at the show at booth #213.
