CEDIA is offering a 10% early bird discount for its ISE 2015 educational courses. Delegates have until January 16 2015 to register for any of its 24 expert workshops available.

CEDIA will be delivering an extensive training programme, incorporating 24 new and existing courses at ISE 2015.

The education programme will consist of four one-day training courses (taking place on February 9) and 20 90-minute sessions (February 10-12), with education sessions set to focus on technical training, business development and industry developments.

This year, a number of new courses have been introduced, including an Introduction to KNX and an Introduction to Building Management Systems, “HDMI 2.0 – The Next Generation for Video Connectivity”, “Ecological Automation – the Basics of Energy”, “Fifty First Dates – Finding Love for Your Brand Online” and “How to Work Profitably with Architects and Other Specifiers”.

“Join me in my object based audio session and learn how to incorporate the newest audio formats from cinema into your home theatre designs,” invites Guy Singleton, managing director of Imagine This and presenter of ‘Atmos, Auro 3D & More: Object Based Audio from the Cinema to the Home Theatre’.

“We discuss the technical design detail and real world implementation of audio formats, including Atmos, Auro 3D and more, and look at how to confidently incorporate these exciting new formats into your own home theatre designs.”

“Have you ever been asked to ‘sharpen your pencil’ when presenting a quotation to a customer? Do you have customers who simply cannot make up their mind? Are you challenged on every aspect of your quote?” asks Matt Dodd. “If so, then you need to join us for this confidence boost when dealing with your customers. This seminar will give you fantastic tips and techniques to take back to your workplace to help you handle your customers.”
