Lightware presents new room automation and dedicated vertical market solutions at ISE 2023

The innovative Lightware Advanced Room Automation (LARA) platform along with solutions for the vertical markets will be introduced as part of a major presence for Lightware at the professional AV trade event

Budapest, Hungary, 19 January 2023 – Lightware Visual Engineering will give the professional AV market its first glimpse of the new Lightware Advanced Room Automation (LARA) and dedicated vertical market solutions, at stand 3N200, ISE 2023, 31 January – 03 February 2023, Barcelona. Its launch spearheads a significant presence for Lightware at the show as it celebrates a quarter century in the business and outstanding financial results in the past year, with an increase of 150% in revenue in 2022, compared to the record revenue of 2021. 

Expertise Across Different Vertical Markets

At the end of last year, Lightware announced the creation of a new business development team within the company. It has assigned dedicated VPs to the company’s main vertical markets: Education; Defence; Intelligence and Government; and Corporate. On the ISE Lightware stand, the company will address solutions dedicated to these vertical markets.


Lightware offers intuitive and easy-to-use solutions for educational institutions allowing students and educators to focus on the task at hand. Lightware demonstrates its benefits for the future of university lectures with VINX 1G AV over IP solution.

During this demo, visitors will be able to see how this solution works in a large auditorium, where the teacher can share their display from the podium, or they can easily give permission to the students to present theirs instead.

Defence; Intelligence and Government

High-performance AV-over-IP networking and collaboration technology UBEX will be put through its paces live in a special Flight Simulator which is a tailor-made solution for training fighter pilots. Attendees to the Lightware UBEX Demo will see how the Pilot Trainer is able to switch the trainee simulator screen to the main large display and take control of the station via the USB KVM feature of the joystick controls. 

Corporate Solutions and Growing Partnerships

Lightware is at the forefront of building meeting rooms of the future, providing BYOM solutions for the Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Webex platforms. 

Experts from the company’s new AV integration division will highlight at the show a joint bundle product with Cisco and deeper collaborations with leading brands Barco, Poly, and Logitech. Lightware is also cooperating with monitoring companies, such as Utelogy and TAD Monitor so ISE visitors will be able to view joint technical solutions at the show.

LARA, the future-proof room automation at ISE 2023

LARA is Lightware’s first pro AV software based on Agile, bringing system integrators a future-proof deployment model for supporting virtual or in-person collaboration across a range of collaboration spaces, allowing users to focus on their meetings and presentations instead of managing room logistics. ISE visitors will be able to discover the huge potential of the new room automation system built in the Taurus and MMX2 matrix switcher series, demonstrating its effectiveness in the Education, Defence and Corporate areas as well.

Lightware Celebrates 25th Anniversary 

Lightware also reaches an important milestone in 2023 since its beginnings in 1998, when Gergely Vida, CEO at Lightware Visual Engineering and three other friends created the company in Budapest. ISE will be the first occasion to celebrate this 25th anniversary, after a year marked by important challenges in the industry.

In 2023, Lightware’s aim will be to focus on its customers’ needs, delivering viable solutions above expectations, with an uncompromising level of customer service and support. Lightware will also strengthen its vertical market solutions, some of which will be present at ISE.

Gergely Vida said, “We have grown and expanded rapidly in the past few years to now being present in over 30 countries, with a global team of 350+ people. Thank you to everyone who has supported our journey so far and to our amazing employees for their hard work and dedication. We invite everyone to come and celebrate with us.”
