Lightware Celebrates Major Highlights: Impressive Display of Product Innovation, Successful Industry Partnerships, and New Brand Identity Showcased at ISE 2024

Lightware Visual Engineering, a leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for the professional integrated systems market, proudly shares highlights of its highly successful presence at ISE 2024, the world’s premier audiovisual and systems integration exhibition held earlier this month in Barcelona, culminating in the prestigious Best of Show Award for its Taurus UCX-4×3-HCM40 Dual Screen Solution.

The Lightware stand experienced unprecedented visitor traffic, engaging with customers representing 76 diverse nationalities throughout the show. Notable guests included Mike Blackman, Managing Director of ISE, who visited the Lightware stand accompanied by Gergely Vida, CEO of Lightware.

As the company evolved and expanded, so did Lightware’s brand identity. To mark its 25-year milestone, the company embarked on a rebranding journey, unveiling its new logo and reaffirming its goals and beliefs at ISE 2024.

Throughout the exhibition, Lightware demonstrated innovations across its Taurus product family, including updates to the TAURUS UCX that introduce dual-screen capability, advancements in bidirectional DANTE (Dante USB Audio Bridge) and voice tracking solutions. Additionally, the debut of the TAURUS TPX, offering USB-C connectivity extension, and the Taurus TPN, a boardroom AV over IP solution with Networked UCX, were met with enthusiasm from attendees. The Lightware UBEX product showcased its new multiview feature, while the introduction of Gemini GVN highlighted a scalable 1G AV over IP solution designed for rapid deployment.

The Taurus UCX-4×3-HCM40 Dual Screen Solution was honoured with the ISE Best of Show Award for its innovative approach to meeting room connectivity. Revolutionising collaborative spaces, the UCX-4×3-HCM40 seamlessly integrates cutting-edge features, including dual-screen USB-C input supporting 100W charging, a 1GbE USB3 network card compatible with diverse operating systems, and the ability to share external USB3/USB2 devices. Overcoming limitations posed by Apple’s M1/M2/M3 chips, it effortlessly supports two independent 4K60 displays, showcasing its adaptability to various setups.

In addition to product accolades, Lightware’s rebranding efforts received positive feedback for aligning with the company’s renewed goals and vision. A stand party hosted by Lightware further underscored its commitment to industry partnerships and client engagement. Moreover, the company’s participation as a Platinum Sponsor at the 2024 Peerless-AV party facilitated valuable networking opportunities with professionals from across the AV community.

“The success we experienced at ISE 2024 has been nothing short of extraordinary, and receiving the Best of Show Award is a testament to the dedication of our entire team,” said Gergely Vida, CEO of Lightware. “We are inspired by the enthusiastic reception our innovations received and the opportunity to connect with industry leaders at such a dynamic event. We eagerly anticipate continuing to develop solutions that not only meet but exceed the expectations of our customers in the professional integrated systems market.”
