The award-winning Tech Xpo is fast approaching so we thought it was time we gave you a sneak peek into what awaits you from some of our sponsoring exhibitors. From projection to UCC to LED displays and everything in between – we’re proud that there really is no other AV showcase like this in the UK!
Taking place at the prestigious Ascot Racecourse on the 13th and 14th of September, this 2-day event is well worth the travel. Add interactive demonstrations, speaker sessions, a security showcase and unrivalled networking opportunities to the long list of reasons to attend.
We’ll get into that later. But for now, let’s delve into the technology you can expect to see at Tech Xpo.
Biamp is returning to Tech Xpo for the second year as a headline sponsor. As a constant source of innovation, we’re excited to see what they’ve got in store for us.
Biamp will be exhibiting Modena Max Connect for the first time in Europe as the first and only seamless BYOD collaboration experience. With MAX Connect, users can walk into any room with any device and join a meeting instantly using any video collaboration platform such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom Rooms.
Joining a meeting, sharing content, adding remote participants and controlling the room’s AV equipment – Max Connect can do it all. It simultaneously offers an equal experience for all meeting participants while ensuring it’s easy for IT to manage and deploy. Enterprise-class security protects organisations from connected devices that the IT team does not manage, ensuring that BYOD-led meetings won’t lead to security breaches.
Biamp will also exhibit its conferencing video, audio and speaker bars designed for conference rooms. Intelligent technology such as Auto Framing, Biamp Beamtracking and Audio and Video Intelligence creates premium meeting experiences.
Tesira is Biamp’s flagship audio and video platform and a true networked media system. All Tesira products can be configured and managed using Tesira software, helping you create the dynamic, efficient AV systems your customers need – all of which are designed and commissioned from a single software platform.
A key reason to visit Biamp at Tech Xpo is to explore just how easy it is to install their conferencing and DSP solutions through Biamp Launch. It triggers automatic discovery, configuration and tuning of connected Biamp devices without the need for custom programming. In addition, Launch produces a full performance report for the meeting space upon completion.
Another set of products renowned for their ease of installation is Biamp’s new meeting room bundles – designed for simplicity, cost-efficiency and peace of mind. The all-in-one, game-changing meeting room bundles will change how you approach meeting room installations. Each bundle comes neatly packaged with cat5 cabling throughout the system, eliminating the hassle of complex wiring and connections.
For many years, LG has continuously shown us how dynamic and wide-ranging their portfolio is. From commercial to hospitality to education, LG displays cover it all. And Tech Xpo 2023 is no exception.
The LAEC series is a 136” display offered as an all-in-one package with an embedded controller and built-in speaker.

With a great brightness of 4,000 nits, the XS4J delivers content clearly and attracts public attention, which is the ultimate goal for outdoor visibility. QWP delivers this even when the viewer is wearing polarised sunglasses. LG SuperSign CMS will be demonstrated, the integrated management programme supporting the creation and management of digital media and content deployment.

Mersive solutions are all about innovation, immersive collaboration and visualisation experiences. Aiming to create better meeting experiences, they’ve designed Solstice - preventing meeting flow disruptions by removing the need to pass control between presenters, allowing unlimited content to be shared quickly and flexibly.
Solstice provides content-rich collaboration for both onsite and remote meeting use cases using existing enterprise network and web conferencing solutions of choice. Because Mersive takes a software-based approach to collaboration, they can offer integrated capabilities that have traditionally required additional hardware – such as digital signage, room analytics, active learning and calendar integration – all managed from Solstice Cloud management.
It's not just a HDMI replacement but lets you share windows, files and multimedia as well as your desktop. Sharing multiple pieces of content from one or more devices at the same time brings true collaboration to meetings. Use on its own or integrate into meeting spaces that already utilise Microsoft Teams or Zoom Rooms. Mersive directly connects the HDMI input enhancing the content share capability. Multiple devices can share through the content stream at the same time.
Mersive’s software-led AV makes cutting-edge technology affordable for educational institutions. Using Solstice in education optimises budgets, extends AV deployment life and enhances the learning experience. We understand the importance of maximising budget while ensuring essential AV capabilities are readily available.
Solstice Cloud is a secure cloud portal that allows administrators to easily manage, analyse and optimise their Solstice-enabled rooms.
Tech Xpo offers customers a unique opportunity to experience Solstice behind the scenes – rather than over the phone or through a computer screen.
