Integrated Systems Europe is once again upon us in chilly Amsterdam, and Cisco Collaboration will be attending for the third year in a row. We always bring along our industry-best collaboration gear to showcase alongside the amazing AV equipment at ISE. This year, we have some particularly bright stars in the mix.

Starring the DX80
If you’ve seen the Oscar-nominated movie, The Martian, you might have noticed that Cisco video conferencing technologies play a key part in helping to bring home the stranded astronaut played by Matt Damon. The Cisco DX80 desktop collaboration system starred in that endeavor. Come see it for yourself at the Cisco booth. And, in case you haven’t seen the movie or just missed the scenes, you can also see a clip of the DX80’s cameo in the movie*.

Interoperability and Scale
Speaking of stars, one of the brightest stars in collaboration is joining us at ISE. We just closed our acquisition of London-based Acano. We’ll be together for the first time publicly at ISE and will share how we plan to extend our respective leadership in interoperability and scale to truly bring video to everyone, everywhere. And we have a never-before-seen demo that you won’t want to miss.  

Intelligent Cameras
You’ve probably heard of SpeakerTrack, Cisco’s dual-camera system that tracks the active speaker during a video conference. But what if the speaker wanted to be the star of the room and the center of attention? Stand up and present at the front of the room in a video conference? That’s never been done before without having your back to the far-end audience – until now, until PresenterTrack. It’s much easier to appreciate this new star by seeing it rather than reading about it, so I hope you’ll come by to see this industry-first technology.

A New Platform
Late last year we unveiled the Spark platform, the latest star in the Cisco Collaboration portfolio. Spark blends team messaging, meetings and phone calls in the cloud. We’ll demo all elements of Spark in our booth. Experience for yourself how we’ve reinvented the collaboration experience.

I hope to see you at the Cisco booth at ISE 2016 (Stand 9-C120). Come enjoy a beverage at our espresso bar and rub elbows with our collaboration stars. See you in Amsterdam!
