Meet iKON AVS at PLASA


If you plan to visit PLASA why not come along on Wednesday 14th and meet David Tyas, MD of iKON AVS in the ISCE Pavilion.



David will also be presenting ‘Video for audio engineers’ in the Whitehall Room, Earls Court 2, at 12.15pm – bring your lunch and hear about the basics of video with emphasis on the new digital formats, but also how to interface these and how to incorporate legacy products into systems.



Incorporating video into a system can be a good additional source of revenue for audio professionals. It may be simply adding a projector to a theatre or digital signage to augment a VA system. But, with multiple analogue video formats and a transition to an equally confusing array of incompatible digital formats, what connects together and works, how do you convert between the formats and how do you cable and connect? When is it worth converting the signals to Cat5?



See it for yourself!


As a valued client we would like to invite you to find out more about the latest products and services from iKON AVS.

Visit our stand A17 at xSolutions, ExCel London, on 19th and 20th October.



Also benefit from eighteen years practical experience of designing and implementing critical control systems during the seminar ‘When control failure is just not an option’ presented by our MD, David Tyas.
