InfoComm China, Asia Pacific’s largest showcase of professional audio visual (Pro-AV) is expected to welcome over 40,000 end users and buyers from around the world. But what will be the big trends at this year's show?

Digital signage is expected to take a back seat to more collaborative solutions, driven by big data and AI, reflecting the growing influence of IT on industry solutions, says FutureSource consulting. Video conferencing and wireless presentation systems are also enjoying Significant growth rates.

Modular remote light source projection is expected to be a key talking point at the show, says the analyst. Digital Projection’s Satellite Modular Laser System (Satellite MLS) and Christie’s Mirage SST, have opened the door for more complex applications, including domes, caves and simulators.

Projection onto transparent screens and glass is expected to be common theme. Maxell, NEC and DNP demonstrated this technology at InfoComm USA last month. Applications include retail and corporate environments.

AV over IP is a major trend, with more manufacturers bringing products to market and major vendors demonstrating the flexibility that IP can offer. Despite Growing interest, wide scale adoption has yet to develop.

Another key trying to look for, says FutureSource Consulting, is a proliferation of live sound systems.

Houses of worship, theatres, performing arts and stadia have all been long-standing opportunities for sound reinforcement, with hospitality and cruise lines coming into focus as key applications.
