Midway Through ISE 2018

The first two days of the ISE 2018 expo in Amsterdam have seen AVI-SPL demonstrate its Unify ME Symphony managed service platform, and deliver talks on user-friendly technology, workplace collaboration, and the Internet of Things as a driver of AV technology. Over the next two days of the event, AVI-SPL will continue to demo Symphony while being a part of talks about collaboration and how the retail environment should be using technology to engage customers. If you’re at ISE and haven’t seen AVI-SPL yet, be sure to stop by booth 11-B130.
