CEDIA has revealed its latest emerging trends video, offering a preview of what CEDIA forecasts to be some major market shifts.
The changes for ESCs will be three fold, CEDIA says, with big shifts in the market place, transformation of traditional sources of revenue, and emerging market opportunities.
For a more in-depth look at the future landscape, join CEDIA for a free webinar on January 19 at 12:00 Eastern. The webinar will delve into the opportunities and threats ESCs need to be aware of as outlined in the ESC of 2016 white paper.
One of the major area that is set to affect many areas of the market is the arrival of the truly “connected home” by 2016. Homes will require very sophisticated, robust, and secure networks within the home that move data and content seamlessly from permanent and mobile devices. Many current ESCs do not have the in-depth knowledge of Internet Protocol (IP) required to design the connected home and thus are not ready for their clients’ needs in five years.
Additional topics include integration and control, digital home health, home theater and media room design, telepresence, robotics, and much more. The ESC of 2016 white paper is available at no cost to CEDIA members only on the CEDIA Marketplace. Members and non-members may attend the webinar. Registration is now open.
