ISE Line-up to Feature Presentation by FSR's Jon Melchin

Melchin to Share Expert Insight on Benefits of Building Information Modeling

Woodland Park, NJ (9 January 2014) - Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the world's best attended tradeshow for the professional AV and electronic systems industry, will feature a comprehensive educational agenda including a presentation by Jon Melchin, FSR Inc.'s Director of Architectural Development. Melchin will offer an expert look into the benefits of Building Information Modeling (BIM) - a 3D design, modeling and simulation technology that has changed the way that architecture is practiced. The presentation is scheduled for 11:30 - 12:30 on Wednesday, 5 February - day 2 of ISE, in Room D204 of the RAI. ISE, a joint venture between InfoComm International and CEDIA, will take place from 4 - 6 February at the RAI in Amsterdam.


Based on extensive experience in the architectural industry, Melchin will impart knowledge and share his views that BIM eclipses the 3D representation of the physical products and functional characteristics of a structure to provide a shared knowledge resource for everyone involved in the design process. The session's appeal extends to architects as well as interior designers, engineers, contractors, facility owners, AV consultants and system integrators. Discussions will illustrate the opportunity for AV professionals to become involved on the ground level of a project, and explore an actual project highlighting benefits of BIM.

"The 'I' in BIM should stand for 'Involvement'," said Melchin. "This presentation will invite the members of the audience to participate in a discussion regarding all the advantages of BIM and all the people that can benefit from its implementation. I am delighted to bring my experience to a diverse group of international professionals at ISE!" Image removed by sender.
