Christie Unveils Massive Product Rollout at InfoComm 2012

Christie will be front-and-center at this year’s InfoComm conference and exhibition at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012 to unveil a host of economical, user-friendly and technologically-advanced visual solutions for the Pro AV, large venue, architectural, corporate, broadcast, control room and digital signage markets.

With many unique displays representing real-world situations, Christie solutions show businesses, government entities and academia how they can safeguard the value and leverage the potential of their visual technology investments, while delighting their own end-users and customers.

“Nine new Christie M Series projectors, two new 3LCD platforms and a new Pro AV 4K projector join a wide range of display options – including standard and custom-sized, stackable displays and LCD flat panels – to send a clear message,” commented Kathryn Cress, vice president, global and corporate marketing, Christie. “And that message is that Christie remains the only single source manufacturer that supplies proven, leading-edge technology and products for business, all backed with substantial warranties and industry-leading service and support.”

Christie’s booth will also feature an impressive projection mapping display utilizing four Christie RoadsterS+22K-J models, all with onboard Christie Twist – the best image warping and blending software on the market. “It’s not just about mapping images onto building facades anymore. With Christie Twist, mapping specialists have the creative freedom to map onto unusual surfaces and structures,” added Cress. Featuring content designed and mapped by BARTKRESA design (www.bartkresa.com), Christie’s projection mapping display at InfoComm illustrates the effect of mapping onto a pyramidal structure with deep facets and dramatic angles.

Specific to Insight Media’s Projection Summit opening today, Dr. Paul Salvini, chief technology officer at Christie, will give the keynote address on “What’s Next for Pro AV?” beginning at 9:00 a.m. PST at the Las Vegas Hotel.

Owing to the use of solid-state illumination, the Entero LED 70” features vivid, wide-color gamut performance and there are no lamps to replace, no moving parts and no consumables. The system’s zero-maintenance design provides exceptional reliability and a long lamp life.
It also features Christie ArrayLOC™ automatic brightness and color balancing technology, which monitors and adjusts color and brightness levels across the display wall in real time.

Rounding out Christie’s new offerings is the Christie TVC-1700, the latest generation of Christie video wall processors.

SYMNET EDGE INSTALLED IN PRIVATE SCHOOL

trinityschool_edge.JPGAUSTIN, TEXAS – JUNE 2012: Trinity Episcopal School of Austin has already grown from a startup private school to a K-8 institution of 450 students. Its exponential increase has spurred a succession of construction projects, the latest of which is a 750-seat multipurpose chapel for religious services, student performances, and community events. Trinity Episcopal School of Austin hired central-Texas-based Ace Audio Communications, Inc. to design and install a state-of-the-art audio/visual system for the new chapel. Ace Audio centered its sound reinforcement on an Allen & Heath iLive console paired with Symetrix SymNet Edge DSP. The two units are networked together using the next-generation Dante network protocol, which supports a huge channel count of lossless audio with imperceptible latency.

To maximize the new chapel’s flexibility without compromising its functionality, the school opted to build two stages, one along the width of the room and more

Adaptive Video Walls and Displays Introduces New Video Solutions at InfoComm 2012

New Products Include Single-Monitor Suspension; Mounted and Flown Video Walls

LAS VEGAS, JUNE 12, 2012 – Adaptive Video Walls and Displays, a
division of Adaptive Technologies Group and the premier provider of innovative wall-mountable, floor-standing, interlocking and flyable video wall frames for multiple LCD, LED and plasma monitors, will debut at InfoComm 2012 (Booth C9547) several new video solutions, including its HoverPro(tm) single-LCD monitor suspension device, a 3×3 Flown Video Wall, a 4×1 Flown Quad Display, and 1×4 and 2×2 Mounted Video Walls.

“We are excited to share with InfoComm attendees several new video products at this year’s show,” says Paul Allen, president, Adaptive Technologies Group. “InfoComm is the perfect avenue to get the word out about Adaptive’s wide range of video solutions and the ease of installation that contractors get in the field when they use our gear.”

The HoverPro is a single LCD monitor suspension device that delivers visual messages and content anywhere marketers want without the limitations of wall mounting and/or expensive kiosks. Messages are permanently displayed above and in front of indoor target audiences by suspending and aiming 40-inch and larger LCD and plasma screens from any overhead structure. As a pre-engineered rigging system, HoverPro utilizes the standard rear VESA-mounting hole patterns built into flat screen monitors. These rigging kits provide installers with the ability to safely suspend and tilt screens into any desired angle, from any location. Down-tilt aiming is accomplished by way of suspending the monitors from the HoverPro brackets’ multiple suspension points. An optional horizontal aiming device, the One-Way-Array(r), may be installed in line, above the HoverPro, to provide up to 360 degrees of aiming rotation. Additionally, a wide variety of standard off-the-shelf rigging hardware is available to allow the installer to safely assemble and “hover” the LCD or plasma monitor at any desired height and angle above an audience, store traffic and window fronts.

The new 3×3 Flown Video Wall will be shown in a landscape configuration using Sharp PN-V601 60-inch LCD monitors, accommodating three monitors wide and three monitors deep. This incredibly precise and load-rated flyable frame can interlock to create large format and very impressive displays. Its adjustable monitor levelers ensure that all monitors are in the correct planar alignment and are domestically produced. The load-rated rigging components ensure long service life, even for rental and staging applications.

The new 4×1 Flown Quad display, also available in landscape configuration, features NEC 55-inch monitors flown in a horizontal square pattern, utilizing Adaptive’s GridLink(tm) rigging system, with four monitors wide and one monitor deep. Adaptive’s rugged and load-rated GridLink rigging beams quickly arrange into square, rectangular and hexagonal-shaped grids that provide an excellent platform to fly monitors, creating attention-getting, long-lasting impressions. Adaptive’s line of flown displays feature load-rated frames, rigging beams and accessory attachments, allowing the user to create and fly full landscape and portrait displays in any desired configuration.

Adaptive is also introducing two new mounted video wall solutions at InfoComm, including its 2×2 Mounted Video Wall with four ViewSonic 46-inch monitors. In addition, its innovative 1×4 Mounted Video Wall with 46-inch NEC monitors will be on display, which is especially geared toward the retail environment. Designed as entire assemblies, rather than individual wall mounts, Adaptive’s line of video wall frames are extremely time-saving and built to very close tolerances to get the best fit between monitors. Adaptive Video Walls also feature monitor locks and compartments for media players and other electronic devices, providing a flexible and reliable solution for any indoor application.

Albania’s News 24 Streamlines Graphics Capabilities With Chyron Channel Box² and LEX³.¹ New Deployment at Leading 24-Hour News Channel Marks Chyron’s First Installation in Albania

LONDON — June 12, 2012 — Chyron today announced that News 24, Albania’s premier 24-hour news channel, has upgraded its on-air graphics capabilities with the company’s Channel Box² channel branding and LEX³.¹ graphics systems. The Chyron solutions will be a key new component in News 24′s migration to HD broadcasting slated for later this year.

“We have achieved fantastic results with Channel Box² and LEX³.¹. With a single computer, we can now perform the job that three separate systems and three different software licenses were doing before — and with absolute top-quality results,” said Arianit Filopati, director of production, News 24. “The Chyron systems have accelerated uploading and delivery of news to air, and since our journalists are spending much less time on graphics presentations, they can focus on their real work of gathering and delivering the news. With Chyron, our news broadcasts now have the most professional look of any in Albania.”

News 24 is Albania’s first 24-hour news channel and currently commands the largest market share for news broadcasting. Chyron’s Channel Box² and LEX³.¹ replace previous graphics systems that had been in place since 2002. These systems required three separate PCs for generating crawls, news subtitles in Albanian and English, and main titles for the live broadcast. Many graphics creation and data input tasks had been manual and time-consuming, requiring up to five journalists to cut and paste each set of data into the user interface.

By upgrading its equipment to the Chyron systems, News 24 was able to streamline many graphics and data input tasks. Deployed to facilitate the station’s channel branding, Channel Box²’s automated data handling capabilities and data gateways enable seamless import of news and graphical data — accelerating workflows for delivering news broadcasts to air. From one single Channel Box², the News 24 team is able to generate and playout 13 different graphical components that are broadcast day and night, including text, crawls, video DVE, animated logos, hour and date, and various clips in support of the current news topic.

The LEX³.¹ graphics playout system enables News 24 journalists to enhance each on-air news broadcast with a rich set of graphics and last-minute changes. In fast-paced live coverage, the LEX³.¹ system’s template-based text and graphics enable instant updates from data feeds and databases.

“The Albanian television industry is rapidly advancing and becoming extremely competitive. News 24 is committed to maintaining its market leadership by adopting leading-edge technologies — and one component is the ability to deliver a highly sophisticated on-air presentation that easily outclasses the competition,” said Viktor Tatai, regional sales manager at Chyron. “By adopting Chyron’s Channel Box² and LEX³.¹, News 24 has taken a significant step forward with systems that simplify workflows and accelerate delivery of highly complex and professional graphics components that complement news content.”

Mitsubishi Electric Exhibits Flagship 70-inch and 55-inch Edge-Lit LED Monitors at InfoComm

Mitsubishi Electric Exhibits Flagship 70-inch and 55-inch Edge-Lit
LED Monitors at InfoComm

IRVINE, Calif., June 12, 2012 —Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. exhibits two new edge-lit, LED monitors at InfoComm, the largest audio/visual industry show in the country. The narrow bezel flagship 70-inch MDT701S and 55-inch MDT552S LED monitors are being shown for the first time in Mitsubishi’s Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

“Our new monitors are designed to create a spectacular image in a super-thin design using edge-lit LED technology that is perfect for today’s conference rooms and digital signage applications,” said Brandon Tarnow, brand manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc.

In the latest nod to open standards, these new monitors offer an Intel OPS (Open Pluggable Standard) Card Slot for easy installation and maintenance. They also come with built-in speakers that fire toward the bottom to eliminate sound reverberation, which often occurs with rear-directed speakers.

Connecting to various devices is simple with the built-in, plug-and-play USB Hub. Users can connect a video conference camera, mouse and keyboard directly to the monitor, avoiding messy cables. Five additional hubs can be cascaded onto the system so that up to sixteen separate peripherals can be connected at once.

As the first manufacturer to announce a Crestron Connected™ display, Mitsubishi Electric’s new monitors can be easily connected to any enterprise network using standard Ethernet cable and Crestron software. For quick point-to-point network management and control, users download free RoomView® Express software to any connected laptop or PC or select server-based Fusion RV™ for global enterprise management from anywhere, anytime using any web-enabled laptop computer, Apple® or Android™ smart phone or tablet. The displays can be seamlessly monitored, managed and controlled using either RoomView Express or Fusion RV, with no programming required, or users take full control of the display from any Crestron control system.

These new LED monitors use Mitsubishi Electric’s proprietary algorithms to create Super Resolution, which can take a standard definition image and translate it into high-definition for a rich, detailed image.

Mitsubishi Electric’s MDT701S and MDT552S LED monitors offer front- and rear-ambient light sensors that detect lighting conditions in two areas. These sensors adjust the monitor’s brightness level and balance image brightness for optimum viewing.

“Digital signage and conference room applications need flat panel monitors that are robust and easy to install and use,” said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “Our new monitors bring a combination of features that are important to today’s integrators and sophisticated end users.”

Both the MDT701S and MDT552S will be available in fourth quarter of 2012 through authorized Mitsubishi dealers.
