ISE 2018: Our favourite things
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit over to Amsterdam to ISE 2018, the largest integrated systems trade show in the world, and have just about recovered!

Lode - this was a company that we specifically wanted to see as we have been looking for a new audio server and thought the LA4 might be the right fit. They are a UK based company that creates class-leading music streaming products for the Custom Install industry. Based on a real love of music played in its native form, Lode Audio was created out of a need to re-introduce high-quality music reproduction to the CI market. We were impressed with what we saw, and with who we spoke to - Ed Stark (CEO) is one of the best examples I have seen in a long time of someone who genuinely cares about what they do. They set up the company partly out of frustration of not being able to find the right product in the market place and decided they could create one themselves ... and they have. It ticks all the boxes for the vast majority of clients and we'll look forward to having a play with some of their kit with a view to introducing it into our projects. They say "We care about performance and control", and judging by the support we've already had, they also care about us as the customer too.
Epson Moverio - we made an appointment to see Marc-Antoine on the Epson stand as we are very interested in their smart glasses with binocular OLED display, otherwise known as Moverio BT-300/BT-350.
