Converging Worlds at ISE 2017 in Amsterdam

By in Live Sound

ISE is the world’s largest AV and system integration show, taking place this year from 7-10 February in Amsterdam. As the lines have blurred between AV and broadcast over the last few years, ISE has become more prominent in the calendars of content creators and broadcasters who are keen to embrace technologies from the IT world, while AV users and event producers want to see how they can harness broadcast-based systems to better communicate with their audiences.

Avid will once again be presenting a select range of products on the exhibition floor, and sharing our experience and expertise in conference sessions. Here’s a guide to what we are doing and where you can find us during ISE 2017.

On Stand 7.V215

Avid’s live sound solutions are among the best in the business, bringing incredible sound quality, sophisticated functionality and ease of use to the most demanding tours, theater productions, broadcasts and performance installations.


On Stand 7.V215 we have the Avid VENUE | S6L, one of the most trusted and requested live mixing systems in the world, which enables live sound professionals to take on the world’s most complex tours and events with ease. With the new VENUE 5.3 software, users can now benefit from 128 track Avid Pro Tools® recording and playback over Ethernet AVB, multiple user-definable fader layouts, support for the new MADI-192 MADI Option Card, as well as the console’s unprecedented processing capabilities. We will also be showing key technology previews aimed at enhancing theatre-related workflows.

Visitors to the stand will also see the Avid VENUE | S3L-X, which delivers all the power and efficiency of VENUE in an ultra-compact system. It offers exceptional sound quality with warmth and clarity, with professional-grade I/O, transparent preamps, EQ and dynamics on all outputs, and direct support for the same plug-ins used in top recording studios. Its compact size ensures that it will fit in to the smallest FOH spaces, and it is easily scalable to meet varying requirements.

TD Control

Around the show

Avid is also pleased to have its TD Control studio control and management solution at the show on Unilumin’s stand 12-H57. Unilumin is one of the world’s leading LED manufacturers delivering turnkey LED display and LED lighting solutions. TD Control works with Unilumin to offer a complete solution for operating multiple displays in locations such as TV studios, arenas and concert halls, combining the unique proportions and aspects of Unilumin high-end video walls with the ease of operating that Avid’s TD Control allows. This combination helps to make the video walls part of the storytelling rather than treating it as a backdrop or wallpaper.
