Road to ISE: Black Box

In our series of #RoadtoISE blogs, we're talking with exhibitors about the hottest technologies and trends they're looking to see at ISE 2019.

Q&A with Jonathan McCune, Director of Product Management, A/V & Infrastructure, Black Box.

Q: Why ISE?

JONATHAN MCCUNE: ISE is the industry’s largest AV trade show with the widest breadth of attendees. Black Box’s IP-based solutions for digital signage and visualization provide a flexible platform that spans the diverse range of show attendees—end users, integrators and resellers alike.

Q: What is the most exciting trend you expect to see at the show?

JM: Video over IP is reaching a market inflection point, and in 2019 Black Box will see a steep ramp up in adoption of IP-based video distribution. We expect ISE 2019 to reflect this trend, and also to demonstrate the industry’s move toward results-driven digital connectivity and fast, convenient digital collaboration. The sharing of high-resolution digital content will enable more efficient collaboration across teams, no matter where team members are located.

Q: How will your solutions inspire integrators?

JM: Black Box will showcase video-over-IP solutions that minimize both the cost of deployment and the time required on site to manage AV installations. Our solutions deliver these key benefits by leveraging plug-and-play video distribution, infinitely scalable video wall solutions and versatile digital signage solutions.
