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.
