7/19/2010 12:01:00 AM Eastern

INDIANAPOLIS — The Custom
Electronic Design & Installation Association
(CEDIA) will unveil its first ever
Future Technology Pavilion at the
annual CEDIA Expo, to be held Sept.
22–26 in Atlanta.

The Future Technology Pavilion will
showcase emerging trends and cuttingedge
home technologies that are expected
to impact the electronic systems industry,
CEDIA said.

The Future Technology Pavilion will
take attendees through a multi-room exhibit,
with each segment designed to resemble
a separate room in the home. The
pavilion will feature a variety of product
displays illustrating new and emerging
ways in which technology may be integrated
into the home of tomorrow.

The segments of the Pavilion are:

• Future of Entertainment (home
theater) – This section will offer a
worldwide exclusive look at the integration
of 3D, 9.1 surround sound and motion
seating in one setting. This room will include state-of-the-art acoustic
and video calibration to show the first
truly immersive experience in a residential
environment.

• Sustainable Lifestyles/Energy
Management (garage) – This section
will highlight how consumers can
make their homes more environmentally
friendly by monitoring and reducing
energy usage. Technologies will include
ZigBee-enabled circuit breakers,
power monitoring technology and electric
vehicle charging stations.

• Digital Home Health (bedroom)
– As baby-boomers continue to move
into their retirement years, the field of
digital home health presents a growing
opportunity for electronic systems contractors.
Technologies displayed in this
segment of the pavilion will integrate
remote blood pressure monitoring,
weight monitoring sensors, a pulse/oxygen
meter and more in a simple-to-use
interface.

• Future of Communications (living
room) – This segment of the pavilion
will display technologies focused on integrating
communications platforms
such as social media and telepresence
within home technology systems.

The Future Technology Pavilion
will be open during tradeshow hours
Thursday, Sept. 23 through Sunday,
Sept. 26.
