 “Awarding ISE ‘Best of Show’ laurels was incredibly difficult this year,” Margot Douaihy added. “With more than 3,000 products on display at the RAI, representing a global proAV/IT industry, there are exciting developments in networked audio, 4K video, cloud control, connectivity, collaboration, and so more. However, the ‘Best of Show’ honor recognizes benefits for tech managers first and foremost, and offers readers a curated list of ‘can’t-miss’ solutions. Our team weighed the system or product’s uniqueness of the feature-set, perceived value proposition, ease of deployment and use, network impact, and reliability. We were so impressed this year, and we know you will be, too. Congratulations to all the 2017 ‘Best of Show’ winners.”
