CEDIA outlines details of the first Tech Summit event at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London

CEDIA has announced presentation details for its first event of the Tech Summit tour.

Kicking off on April 4 at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, the event is free to attend and aims to promote real-world education, practical business development and networking for its attendees. 

Details have now been released as to who will be taking each of the four 45-minute presentations and what they will be focusing on, including audio, video, lighting and security. 

CIE will provide a comprehensive guide to specifying and installing high quality intercom solutions as part of a fully-integrated smart building solution or MDU project. 

Taking an in-depth look at the ever-expanding home cinema market, Focal will concentrate on key areas such as maximising performance, subwoofer placement, the importance of phase coherency, and an introduction to Dirac Live. 

After lunch, Blustream UK will answer the question of whether it is worth investing in 8K displays by looking at the newly formed HDMI 2.1 specification. 

The final presentation of the day will see Rako Controls discussing how dimming technology has changed over the last ten years and cover the different types of LED lighting used in residential projects.

In between seminar sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with this year’s sponsors and explore what products and solution they have to offer. The sponsors include Alltrade, Amina, AWE, Blustream UK, CIE, Control4, Crisp Accountancy, Focal, Future Automation, Gallo Acoustics, GJD, Invision, KEF, LG, LILIN, Lithe Audio, Lutron, Meridian Audio, My KNX Store, OneAV, and Rako Controls.
