SDVoE 20/20: In-booth Education Sessions to be Offered at InfoComm 2019

“The Matrix Transformed” will be highlighted in 20-minute interactive presentations of SDVoE case studies, networking topics, AV/IT convergence issues, and much more

MONTREAL — May 7, 2019— At InfoComm 2019 (Orlando, June 12-14, booth 1143) the SDVoE™ Alliance will feature industry experts presenting 20-minute, in-booth education sessions on a variety of topics essential for system integrators, designers, consultants and tech managers who want to take advantage of the flexibility, scalability, interoperability and cost benefits of the SDVoE platform for networked AV. 

“Our SDVoE 20/20 talks were such a popular attraction at last year’s InfoComm that we are expanding the program in Orlando with new topics and speakers,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Attendees can choose from more than 20 different sessions, invest 20 minutes to learn about what it means to ‘transform the matrix’ in easily digestible chunks, and possibly be the one at each session to leave with $20.”

Presentations will start on the hour and half hour throughout all three days of the show. A full schedule of all sessions can be obtained in the SDVoE Alliance booth 1143. Pre-registration for the sessions and prize drawings is available on the SDVoE Alliance website at
