The continuing convergence between the worlds of AV and broadcast, and the opportunities arising from IP and streaming technologies, will be discussed at a free industry event next week.

InstallMarket, presented by Intent Media brand Installation, takes place on 4 September at London's Business Design Centre. It is a free conference and networking event for the AV installation industry, which will provide delegates with a detailed understanding of the technology trends and emerging business opportunities in key vertical sectors.

Each panel will comprise an expert moderator - a consultant or analyst specialising in the relevant sector - and three integrators. Each will present their views on how the sector is developing, with reference to recently completed project case studies.

In the session entitled 'AV & Broadcast Convergence: A Marriage in IP', the panel will explore how IP technologies are bringing together integrators from the broadcast and AV spheres. Affordable broadcasting technology is now supplying the new needs of corporates, institutions and individuals as broadcasting moves from the exclusive domain of big studios to the desktop and even countertop.

This session will be moderated by James Raby, a venture capitalist and Sainsbury Management Fellow with significant experience in the broadcast and communications industries in marketing, investment, and mergers and acquisitions. In the past he has worked as director of television at NTL Broadcast, project manager for the Independent Broadcast Authority, and head of broadcast development at VT Merlin Communications.

Joining him on the panel will be Carmelo Armenta, project manager, Metro Broadcast; Nevil Bounds, group sales director, Torpedo Factory Group; and Dave Raymen, southern regional manager, Saville Audio Visual.

Other panel sessions at the event will address the retail, education, hospitality and transportation sectors, with the final session looking at AV/IT convergence. A full schedule is available here.

InstallMarket opens at 10:00, with the conference programme running from 10:45 to 5:00, followed by a networking drinks reception.

All pre-registered attendees will be entered into a draw to win one of 20 pairs of Audio-Technica headphones. Register for free now.
