Highlighting the second day were three seminars
UK - The Institute of Sound, Communications and Visual Engineers (ISCVE) celebrated a successful ISCVEx 2024. The two-day symposium, which took place from 19-20 March at the historic Coombe Abbey, near Coventry, brought together more than 250 attendees in a showcase of knowledge, technology and community.
ISCVE hosted a varied line-up, which started with an engaging AGM and featured an illuminating member’s presentation from Jason Williams on Species AI Capture – The challenges and rewards of working on environmental and conservation projects. Participants then enjoyed camaraderie and insights exchanged at the networking dinner, complemented by an exhilarating performance by The Pub Choir.
Highlighting the second day were three seminars. James ‘Brew’ Henry Breward led the charge with Quiet Please, bringing to the spotlight the advanced audio systems utilised at Wimbledon. Dr. Peter Mapp then captivated the audience with his talk on Myths, Maths & Morphs, exploring the veracities and misconceptions of speech communication, as well as public address systems design. Concluding the seminar series was a discussion on Tuning in to Cyber Security Risks by Mike Davies, Centrality’s lead consultant, emphasising the mounting threats of cyber incursions faced across the spectrum of enterprise.
"The feedback on the seminars underscored their captivating and thought-provoking content," Ros Wigmore of ISCVE observes. "Plans are already underway for next year's event, propelled by this year’s accomplishments.
"The energy in the exhibition room was palpable, with visitors consistently engaging with more than thirty leading manufacturers and distributors," notes Wigmore. "The event provides a splendid platform for our members and the wider industry to foster connections, exchange ideas, and sculpt the future in a nurturing, yet informal atmosphere.”
“ISCVEx 2024 was an opportunity for Reclaim Audio to show off our new products, including a power amplifier that runs off sunshine, to the attendees at the event,” comments Andrew Bishop, Reclaim Audio.
“Biamp has been a supporting member of ISCVE for nearly 10 years and ISCVEx is a fantastic event. It’s a great opportunity for us to meet up with colleagues and Biamp partners the night before (at the Networking Dinner) and during the day of the event”, adds Alex Farrell, Biamp.
Attendees were also treated to a buffet lunch where discussions flourished, epitomising the event's focus on both innovation and community spirit.
"We aim to harness our collective expertise to not only anticipate our industries trajectories but to also actively mould its evolution," concludes Neil Voce SCVE president, echoing the forward-thinking ethos that ISCVE embodies.
