The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA), Indianapolis, unveiled key details surrounding the CEDIA EXPO 2012 Future Technology Pavilion. This future home environment will feature technology solutions that will be integrated to create the next generation of the smart home, the fully intuitive home, set to arrive in the next four years.
This year’s Future Technology Pavilion will showcase four distinct areas: health, work, eat and play. Savant, the overall sponsor of the Future Technology Pavilion, will bring a new level of integration, distributed AV, and energy management to the table.
“We will provide attendees a glimpse at the day in the life of the home of 2016,” said Dave Pedigo, CEDIA senior director of Technology. “As attendees move through the home environment they will see first-hand how the home interacts and reacts to the needs of the user.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to experience an interactive kitchen in the ‘eat’ area of the Future Technology Pavilion. Integration and control provided by Savantwill tell the homeowner when water is boiling on the stove, or when the dishwasher has completed its cycle. In addition Mosaiqqand 3Mwill showcase an embedded touch screen video wall that doubles as a kitchen backsplash.
The ‘play’ area of the Future Technology Pavilion will feature a fully immersive video room brought to life by Audio Design Associates, Auralex Acoustics, Digital Projection, Purdue University, Stewart Filmscreen, and Triad . In addition to the immersive video room, the ‘play’ area will feature an entertainment room that will be able to identify the occupant, their likes and dislikes and display the appropriate content for that user. Obscura Digitalwill also be a part of the ‘play’ area of the Future Technology Pavilion showcasing the latest technology-enhanced pool table.
Additional Future Technology Pavilion sponsors include: Access Networks, Grandcare Systems, Honeywell, Lutron, Nest, and Symbol Logic. CEDIA will release additional details regarding the Future Technology Pavilion as the show approaches.
The Future Technology Pavilion will offer tours during CEDIA EXPO tradeshow hours, Thursday, September 6 and Friday, September 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Indianapolis.
