ISE 2023 – Integrated Systems Europe

Immerse yourself in a world full of innovations

This year's Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) was impressive again. A lot has happened in the industry in recent years and the developments of new devices have accelerated enormously. Although ISE 2022 is only nine months away, there were once again many innovative technologies and novelties to marvel at this year. We were on site and have summarised the highlights for you.

Why no AV expert should miss the ISE

ISE is THE trade fair for AV and system integration in Europe, where all renowned international hardware and software manufacturers in the industry present their latest products and solutions. Among other things, visitors will learn everything about unified communication, collaboration and hybrid work and can admire video conferencing systems, interactive displays, audio and video technology, impressive LED walls and many other innovative new products.

The fair is accompanied by a supporting programme of conferences and lectures, where participants can delve deeper into specific areas and exchange ideas and network with interesting discussion partners.


What's new from the platform giant?

Last year, Microsoft surprised visitors to ISE with exciting features for Microsoft Teams, such as the new Front Row, a view mode for lifelike meetings in 21:9 format. This year, too, Microsoft offered its audience a varied programme in which interested parties could inform themselves in various slots about current topics such as inclusive meetings, hybrid working, interoperability or Microsoft Teams certifications.

The success of Microsoft's popular UC platform has led to more and more video conferencing vendors ambitiously working to optimise their solutions for Microsoft Teams Rooms. The news that caused a particular stir in the UC world last year was the announcement of the new partnership between Microsoft and tech giant Cisco. The first video conferencing systems from Cisco certified for Microsoft Teams are to be launched on the market in the course of this year, on which the user can use both platforms - Microsoft Teams as well as Cisco Webex - natively.

21:9 Displays

The perfect match for Microsoft Teams Front Row

From the gaming world to business. The 21:9 format is not uncommon on modern desktops, but now the trend is also catching on in the collaboration sector. So we were very interested to see that since last year's ISE, the screen format of many display manufacturers has adapted to the new trend. While last year there was only one supplier, this year no less than six manufacturers presented their latest displays in 21:9 format.

More than just a video conferencing tool

We all remember: at the beginning of the pandemic, Zoom made it big as a free video conferencing tool for everyone. Simple functions, intuitive to use. Since then, we've seen Zoom developers work tirelessly to expand the platform and add new exciting applications and features. Now, at ISE, Zoom showed us the new Zoom One, which combines all major communication channels such as video, chat, call and whiteboarding on one central platform. In addition, Zoom presented four other tools from its product range that offer real added value to companies with numerous new application possibilities.

Zoom Spaces

Zoom Spaces helps employees and teams navigate and connect in the modern workplace. Practical features such as workspace reservations, scheduling displays or digital signage ensure more efficient space utilisation.

Zoom Events

Zoom Events is an intuitive platform for virtual and hybrid events. Here, participants can be coordinated and provided with important information, streams and videos can be managed and published afterwards.

Zoom Contact Center

Zoom Contact Center provides video-optimised omnichannel availability across all channels. The cloud-based solution with AI chatbot helps deliver accurate and personalised answers to customers' questions and relieves contact centre staff.

Zoom Developer

This application offers versatile options for developers and platform integrators - from integrating API's to creating apps. Zoom Developers offers additional features such as a developer forum, support sites and developer tools.


Certified for Microsoft Teams

Last year, Microsoft and Cisco announced their new partnership. This means that the popular platform will soon be able to be used natively on Cisco's first-class systems. Already in the first quarter of this year, the first Cisco devices are to be certified for Microsoft Teams. We had the opportunity to take a first look at the certified devices at ISE.

DEKOM is comprehensively certified

We are both a Cisco Gold Integrator and a Microsoft Gold Partner and are always monitoring the latest developments of our partners. We have been following the collaboration between Cisco and Microsoft with excitement, because the integration of Microsoft Teams into Cisco's first-class systems opens up completely new perspectives and possibilities for the UC world. Do you have any questions on this topic? We will be happy to advise you!

Collaboration displays with unique camera positioning

Display manufacturer DTEN was also represented at ISE and presented its latest all-in-one collaboration display D7X, which is available in both a single and dual version. The multifunctional collaboration display certified for Zoom convinces with a unique camera positioning and extended whiteboard and video collaboration functions for Zoom Rooms.

Lenovo ThinkSmart View Plus

Microsoft Teams Rooms Experience at a single workstation or in the Focusroom

At Lenovo's booth, we were introduced to the new ThinkSmart View Plus, a dedicated Microsoft Teams display for the individual workstation or a shared focus room, among other things. The 27-inch multi-touch display, including a 4K IRGB camera with automatic smart framing and dual speakers, is designed specifically for collaboration in a Microsoft Teams meeting environment and offers premium audio and video quality alongside comprehensive whiteboarding capabilities.

Transparent LED Walls

We were particularly impressed by the variety of new transparent LED Walls. The technology behind them integrates the LED chips directly into the glass substrate, giving the panels a high degree of transparency. These panels are then assembled into modules that can be combined to create large-scale displays of virtually any size and shape. This breakthrough technology is revolutionising the way digital displays are used. With the given transparency, these state-of-the-art screens offer a unique visual experience and countless application possibilities.
