HARMAN’s BSS Audio Broadens Network Interoperability, Adds Dante(tm) BLU-806 and BLU-326 Processors to Soundweb(tm) London

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – In a move to broaden network interoperability of its category-leading Soundweb London audio networking and processing platform and provide integrators with more comprehensive choices, HARMAN’s BSS Audio today added Audinate Dante(tm) enabled processors to a line that also includes Cirrus Logic CobraNet(r) and AVB. As a result, HARMAN Professional and BSS Audio now provide deeper technology solutions and support for legacy projects, current large format fixed installations and progressive AVB-enabled networks in the pipeline.

The BLU-806 offers the same configurable signal processing capability as the existing BLU-800 device. Both new devices offer configurable inputs and outputs, compatibility with all Soundweb London input and output card options, logic processing capability, the 256-channel Soundweb London digital audio bus and GPIO.

Each device offers up to 16 inputs and outputs, configurable in banks of four. Card options include analog mic/line inputs with Phantom Power, analog outputs, digital inputs (AES/EBU and S/PDIF), digital outputs, the Soundweb London AEC Input Card and the Soundweb London Telephone Hybrid Card.

The BLU-806 and BLU-326 devices allow 64 incoming Dante channels and 64 outgoing Dante channels.

“System designers using Soundweb London will now have the choice of AVB, CobraNet or Dante as the digital audio transport, using the Soundweb London digital audio bus to complement the application-specific transports. Most importantly, system designers are able to deploy each of these transports using a single software application,” stated Iain Gregory, Marketing Lead for Installed Sound at Harman Signal Processing.

The BLU-806 and BLU-326 along with the other members of the Soundweb London family provide the building blocks of the perfectly tailored system solution.

HARMAN (www.harman.com) designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of audio and infotainment solutions for the automotive, consumer and professional markets – supported by 15 leading brands, including AKG(r), Harman Kardon(r), Infinity(r), JBL(r), Lexicon(r) and Mark Levinson(r).

HARMAN’s JBL Professional Unveils CBT 200LA-1 Constant Directivity Column Loudspeaker

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – At InfoComm 2012, HARMAN’s JBL Professional is introducing the CBT 200LA-1, the newest and tallest model in the popular CBT Series of constant directivity column loudspeakers. At 200 cm (6.6 feet) tall, this array of 32 drivers (each measuring 50 mm/2 inches) provides consistent pattern control over a wider bandwidth than is possible with shorter columns or fewer drivers. Vertical pattern coverage is adjustable to either 15 or 30 degrees to match the architectural characteristics of a wide variety of venues, and a variety of mounting heights. In addition, an innovative asymmetrical progressive-gradient coverage mode can be selected, which makes the speaker function similarly to the popular CBT 70J, directing more sound toward the far areas of the listening space to help reduce variation in SPL levels from front to back throughout the area. This can make for a more pleasant and intelligible listening experience, regardless of listener location.

“In addition to using patented CBT technology to provide constant directivity coverage so that listeners throughout the space hear the same sound character everywhere, the 6-1/2 foot height of the CBT 200LA-1 allows this unobtrusive column speaker to control down to a particularly low frequency for very clear sound, which is important when you want to get well-controlled broadband coverage over a defined listening space,” commented Rick Kamlet, Senior Marketing Manager, Commercial Installed Sound, JBL Professional.

The narrow width (98 mm/3.8 inches) fits visually into a wide variety of applications. Dynamic Sonic-Guard(tm) provides low audibility overload protection. A swivel/tilt wall bracket is included, and MTC-FM flush-mount wall brackets are available. The speakers can be operated at direct low impedance or from a built-in 70V/100V transformer (240 Watts). A speech voicing contour switch raises mid-range sensitivity and increases maximum mid-range SPL by 4 dB, which can be especially useful for speech-based applications. The CBT Series speakers are designed to be installed either indoors or outdoors, and the IP-55 water rating allows the speakers to be used for projecting distances outdoors.

The high degree of pattern control capability of the CBT 200LA-1 makes it ideal for highly reverberant venues or for medium to long throw coverage in a wide variety of applications including transit centers, cathedrals, conference centers, multi-purpose spaces, mass paging applications, gymnasiums, theme parks, and architectural spaces, among many others.

“The CBT 200LA-1 provides the pattern control you would typically get from a constant directivity horn having a mouth that is two meters tall,” Kamlet added, “except without the 15 to 20-foot depth that would be needed for this degree of pattern control and with lower distortion, higher output, control over coverage angle, full-range frequency response, and an asymmetrical ‘progressive gradient’ coverage capability which sends more sound toward the far areas of the space.”

HARMAN (www.harman.com) designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of audio and infotainment solutions for the automotive, consumer and professional markets – supported by 15 leading brands, including AKG(r), Harman Kardon(r), Infinity(r), JBL(r), Lexicon(r) and Mark Levinson(r).

SMALL TREE TEAMS UP WITH TECHNOLOGIES FOR WORSHIP FOR MIRACLE OF SPEED GIVEAWAY

At InfoComm 2012, Small Tree and Technologies for Worship Magazine announce the launch of the Miracle of Speed promotion to provide one lucky church facility in the United States with a GraniteSTOR TITANIUM8, a high-performance, capacity dense, dedicated video editing shared storage appliance with advanced file sharing enabling simple, real-time collaboration to maximize post-production workflow. During InfoComm, Small Tree is showcasing its shared storage systems at the Technologies for Worship pavilion (Booth C5654).

As churches across the country continue to expand production efforts to enable congregations to enjoy inspirational sermons from the comfort of their homes, the demands on post-production teams have never been greater. Unfortunately, for many church-based editing teams, tight budgets and outdated technology make meeting deadlines more difficult than it should be. With the Miracle of Speed giveaway, Small Tree and Technologies for Worship hope to make life easier for one editing team desperately in need of a workflow overhaul.

“The evolution of technology has provided churches with greater opportunity to reach and engage with worshipers,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “Unfortunately, in an attempt to save money, many facilities back-up files to low-cost drives, which is a very inefficient and ineffective approach. Ultimately, such a solution can cost more money as there’s no file protection, so if there’s a failure with the drive all of the work will need to be recreated.”

With an MSRP of $11,195, TITANIUM8 is the newest in Small Tree’s expanding GraniteSTOR line of high performance, affordable Ethernet-based shared storage systems. TITANIUM8 is a 2U rack-mount solution configurable up to 10 GbE or eight 10GbE ports and storage capacity from 8TB to 72 TB, while delivering up to 35 streams of ProRes 422. To facilitate set-up, Small Tree’s experts will assist with remote installation of the system.

Churches can enter the Miracle of Speed giveaway with a tweet on why their church can use the TITANIUM8 solution – including #SmallTreeSpeed in their tweet – or with a post on Small Tree’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/smalltreecomm). While not required to enter the contest, church post-production teams are invited to create a brief video – no longer than three minutes in length – explaining why their church needs the Miracle of Speed and can include a link to their video in their tweet or post. Small Tree will choose the winner based on the effectiveness of their entry.

“Through the Miracle of Speed giveaway, we’re hoping to raise awareness in the church production and post-production communities of the value in protecting your assets by investing in affordable shared storage technology,” Seeber continued. “The horror stories from professionals of lost projects or headaches in having to recover files are never pretty. Churches need to know that you don’t need to install a cost-prohibitive Fibre Channel system to improve workflow while getting peace of mind.”

The winning facility will be included in an installation article to be featured in Technologies for Worship Magazine.

New LiberoVision Highlight 5.0 to Provide Stunning 3D Replays

Bergen, Norway, Vizrt Ltd. (Oslo Main List: VIZ)

Right in time for the kick-off of one of the highest profile sport events in the world, the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship (EURO 2012), LiberoVision, a Vizrt company, launched version 5.0 of its flagship product, Libero Highlight. As over 100 million viewers worldwide watch 16 European nations vying for the title, various broadcasters around the globe are utilizing LiberoVision’s 3D sport analysis software to break down the game’s key moments.

Among the prominent broadcast networks that are covering EURO 2012 with Libero Highlight: ZDF Germany, TV2 Denmark, TV2 Norway, Globosat Brazil, Medcom Panama, TSN Canada, and TVP Poland. During their live coverage, these broadcasters and others will use Libero Highlight 5.0—the latest version of LiberoVision’s powerful 3D virtual replay system.

Sensational 3D replays

Libero Highlight provides realistic 3D virtual replays and advanced branded virtual graphics that help viewers understand pivotal game action and controversial plays. Utilizing live camera signals and video clips captured by any video server system, Libero Highlight’s interactive toolbox lets sports commentators replay the action and apply 3D effects and telestration.

Initiated by a 3D camera flight, this exclusive image processing technology takes the viewers to vantage points that cameras never captured, such as a referee or linesmen view, on the goal line, or from a bird’s eye perspective. Libero Highlight 5.0, released June 1, 2012, adds the following features and capabilities:

§ Virtual run, which visualizes where and how one player may run in a given play while the remainder of the players are held in a freeze frame

§ Panorama Stitch, which brings all parts of a stadium together for a full, panoramic, 3D stadium virtual view

§ Vizrt export to design customized graphics and interactively playout clips via Sports Hub

http://www.vizrt.com/news/article15360.ece

Flexible operation

The broadcasters using Libero Highlight for EURO 2012 coverage are all taking advantage of its flexibility. Some position it at the International Broadcast Center (IBC) in Warsaw, while others are using it from the studio headquarters in their home countries using live camera feeds backhauled from the EURO 2012 stadiums. Some commentators operate it interactively from its intuitive user interface; others control it via an Apple iPad using Viz Anchor, other Vizrt control software, or LiberoVision’s iPad Telestrator with dynamic on-set display on touchscreen monitors and videowalls.

For example, German broadcaster ZDF is operating the Libero Highlight 5.0 from IBC in Warsaw, Poland. Analysis clips are be transferred back to their open-air public viewing studio on the Usedom Island in Germany. ZDF is using the Vizrt Sports Hub in Usedom to ensure tight integration with the Vizrt live graphics workflow at its network facility. The anchors playout and telestrate the highlight clips from the games interactively using a touchscreen and an iPad, both running on Sports Hub. TV2 in Norway is using Sports Hub and Highlight 5.0 from its Norwegian studio. TV2 in Denmark is utilizing Highlight 5.0 from its EURO studio on a houseboat in Copenhagen. Sports commentators there control Highlight 5.0 using an iPad to enhance live game analysis.

Winning viewers for televised sports

“Highlight 5.0 was highly anticipated by broadcasters producing live coverage of EURO 2012,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, chief technical officer for Vizrt. “In covering such a popular event, broadcasters know they must employ state-of-the-art tools and techniques to ensure a visually dynamic production. What’s remarkable is how each of these EURO 2012 broadcasters will be using the same product in such different ways. This is a testament to Highlight 5.0’s versatility, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness.”

Stephan Würmlin Stadler, LiberoVision’s CEO added: “Libero Highlight 5.0 reflects once again LiberoVision’s innovative spirit. Broadcasters are keen to air novelties like the Virtual Run, Panorama Stitch, and utilizing the Sports Hub during this summer’s sports blockbusters.”

Mitsubishi Stands Apart with Partner Synergy

Mitsubishi Electric Stands Apart with Industry Partner Synergy and Depth of Display Offerings

IRVINE, Calif., June 13, 2012 —In an increasingly commoditized marketplace, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. sets itself apart in many ways: the wide range of product offerings, overall product excellence and reliability, and synergistic partnerships with industry leaders to bring the best solutions and services to its customers.

Mitsubishi Electric is the only manufacturer that makes a full line of displays, including LED display boards, projectors, LCD flat panel monitors, data walls and televisions designed for a wide range of industries and applications.

At this year’s InfoComm Expo, the audio/visual display industry’s biggest show, Mitsubishi Electric will share the spotlight with Cybertouch, DisplayNote, IAdea, Luidia, Qwizdom®, ThinkLogical™, and Anacore in Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

CyberTouch brings its touch-screen expertise to bear on three displays in the booth, including the Photon, a multi-touch frame that converts any Mitsubishi Electric video wall to an interactive multi-user experience. CyberTouch’s Rio line of multi-touch monitors recognizes up to 32 simultaneous touch inputs and is a turn-key solution for Mitsubishi Electric dealers who want to integrate this technology. CyberTouch offers gesturing, squeezing and pinching functionalities to make interactive resources easier for untrained or casual multiple users.

DisplayNote’s software allows users to connect to Mitsubishi Electric projectors or monitors and control display content using a tablet or smart phone. Users can view, annotate, save and collaborate with other users using DisplayNote.

IAdea will be exhibiting its media players with digital signage content shown via a user-friendly interface; users can easily connect the media players to a network and effectively (and intuitively) display digital signage. Using the latest HTML5 dynamic content open standard, IAdea media players can display RSS feeds, live web and even news and weather feeds. These media players are also widely supported by many major digital signage software brands.

Luidia returns to the Mitsubishi Electric booth to showcase its interactive eBeam Edge™ platform that creates, saves and shares meeting notes, dynamic lessons, diagrams and more. Weighing less than four ounces, the eBeam Edge works with a Mitsubishi Electric projector to transform walls, traditional whiteboards and flat surfaces into interactive workspaces. This eliminates the need to replace these surfaces with new and costly dedicated interactive ones. They can also work with large-screen, flat panel monitors or display walls.

Quizdom’s WizTeach™ is annotation software that works in single and dual pen mode with Mitsubishi Electric’s projectors for greater collaboration and interactivity. It has more than 70 subject-specific tools for drawing, math, literacy, voting, science and geography. WizTeach annotations save directly into Word, Power Point and Excel, and work with a browser and almost any software application. These tools are designed to improve teaching and learning outcomes.

Thinklogical is one of the world’s foremost developers and manufacturers of high-performance fiber optic video, audio, KVM (keyboard, visual display and mouse) and peripheral extension and routing solutions. The company will show its Velocity Extender product — the VelSys3 Fiber Optic Input Card — built specifically for Mitsubishi Electric video walls. The VelSys3 plugs directly into any Mitsubishi Electric Seventy Series DLP® cube’s optic engine or Seventy Series: Flat monitors as an optional input board for a quick fiber optic connection.

Adding to the excitement in the booth is content provided by Anacore, a leading custom software development company specializing in collaboration and digital signage systems. Visitors will experience powerful and dynamic interactive tools that streamline collaborative discussions, reminiscent of the high-tech wonders found only in futuristic movies.

Mitsubishi Electric works with companies that have a solid reputation in their respective areas of expertise, be it touch screens, interactivity, or thin client communications. Mitsubishi Electric also provides a support network to resolve issues that may arise with one call, to one company.

“Unlike other manufacturers, if you have a problem with a Mitsubishi Electric product, you call us first,” said James Chan, vice president of marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “Even if the issue lies with one of our software or third-party providers, we’ll coordinate the service call so our customers have one point of contact.

“Our core competence is our expertise in display technology that goes back decades,” added Chan. “From huge Diamond Vision™ displays in stadiums and on Time Square to our big-screen TVs, Mitsubishi Electric makes display devices that are specifically designed to improve the viewer’s visual experience.”

Mitsubishi Electric Upgrades LED Engine for Seventy Series Display Cubes

Mitsubishi Electric Upgrades LED Engine for Seventy Series Display Cubes

IRVINE, Calif., June 12, 2012 — Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. announces a new high-brightness LED engine for its modular Seventy Series display cubes. The engine may be seen at InfoComm Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

The new LED engine displays images almost twice as bright as previous models while power consumption and thermal dissipation are decreased by 22 percent. Another innovation is an emergency function: if one of the three LED colors (red, green, blue) fails, the other two compensate to create an image until the LED can be replaced. There’s no image loss or downtime, which is important for mission-critical applications.

“Mitsubishi Electric is known for its excellence in display technology, and this new LED engine proves it by delivering greater brightness while using less energy,” said Matt Krstulja, director of sales, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “I’m pleased to announce that we are shipping and ready for new orders.”

The new engine boasts a direct fiber-optic option, eliminating the need for external fiber receivers, DVI cabling and associated power supplies. This provides simpler, cleaner installations and fewer points of failure.

Because of the Seventy Series’ modular design, this second-generation LED engine fits Mitsubishi Electric’s 4:3 aspect ratio display cubes in 50-, 60-, 67- and 80-inch formats, so users can upgrade easily.

When display cubes are in a tiled configuration, it is important to balance and blend colors to achieve consistency across the wall. Mitsubishi Electric cubes feature an Automatic Color Space Control that blends and adjusts colors automatically while its Digital Gradation Circuit distributes brightness uniformly across the screen. These two technologies ensure brilliant, rich image reproduction evenly from edge to edge across multi-screen configurations.

Each Seventy Series display cube has three built-in sensors (red, blue, green) and a dynamic color control and brightness balancing system that continually monitor the output of each cube, share the data with adjacent units and automatically adjust overall performance. This level of automation maintains image uniformity of multi-screen configurations, with no external action required.

Seventy Series cubes have an internal data processing function that displays up to four windows per cube, so displays can be installed without an external image processor. Multiple windows can be moved freely and, when used in combination with Mitsubishi Electric’s D-Wall Software, the entire imaging system can be controlled from a user-friendly graphical interface.

Thanks to Mitsubishi Electric display cube’s modular design, after replacements or upgrades are installed, the cubes automatically adjust color and brightness across the wall, reducing costly downtime. The replaced units can be listed on Mitsubishi’s Owners’ Circle for resale. Sellers can go to the Mitsubishi Electric Mega View website, http://www.Mitsubishi-MegaView.com, and look for Owners’ Circle, listed under the “Resources” tab.

Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America’s new LED engine is available through authorized systems integrators and comes with a two-year limited warranty on parts and labor. Other terms and conditions apply.

NanoLumens® Introduces Expanded Display Options At INFOCOMM 2012 That Promise To Exceed Customers’ Imaginations

Asserting that technology must live up to, and even exceed, the imaginations of its customers, NanoLumens®, the pioneering Norcross, Georgia based company that last year introduced the world to large format flexible digital display technology, today announced several enhancements to its product line. The enhancements were unveiled by Josh Byrd, NanoLumens Director of Marketing, at Booth #N2169 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Leading the way, according to Byrd, is the announcement that all NanoSlim™ displays are now available in Portrait models. The NanoSlim™ Portrait displays range in size from 114” to 224” and are available in 4-8mm pixel pitch. Less than 3-inches thick and ultra-lightweight, the new displays can be hung simply and easily with standard integrated mounting brackets and are perfect for retail centers, brand showcases and advertising networks. NanoLumens is showcasing a 145” NanoSlim™ Portrait display in their booth at INFOCOMM 2012.

What’s more, according to Byrd, all NanoSlim™ and NanoShape™ models are now available as double-sided displays. Combined with NanoLumens’ superior off-axis viewing, these new double-sided displays make it possible to capture viewer attention from virtually any angle. The ultra-lightweight dual-sided models are less than 4-inches thick, and can be suspended using standard integrated mounting brackets. Now shopping centers, transit stations, corporate lobbies, exhibit halls and more can utilize dual-sided display technology without the bulk traditionally associated with traditional LED technology.

Finally, the company is unveiling its line of NanoFlex Ribbon™ flexible displays that bring out-of-the-box display capabilities to architects, designers and creative professionals. Designed using NanoLumens patented flex display technology, the revolutionary new ribbon displays can conform to curved surfaces, both concave and convex, and can be used in multiple configurations to exacting specifications in order to create unique architectural elements that accent any space. The NanoFlex Ribbon™ is offered in 16×60 inch, 6mm pixel pitch sections, enabling endless creative combinations and like all NanoLumens displays, NanoFlex Ribbon™ is extremely thin, ultra-lightweight and energy efficient.
“Our revolutionary display technology virtually shatters the barriers that have traditionally prevented customers from buying displays that live up to their imaginations,” Byrd said today. “Every digital signage customer wants to be able to deploy display solutions that enhance the message being communicated to their audience without limitations being imposed by the technology. NanoLumens displays, and the enhancements being introduced today at INFOCOMM, allow our customers to have solutions in any shape or size, any curvature, flexible or fixed, single- or double-sided. Now there is nothing that stands in the way of customers achieving their wildest digital signage solution dream.”

NanoLumens displays are extremely slim, ultra-lightweight, energy efficient, and feature a seamless, edge-to-edge picture quality (up to a brightness of 5,000 nits) that can be viewed from any angle or any distance without color shift or picture drop-off. The company’s patented display technology, which allows customers to select from 4mm up to 10mm pixel pitch (depending on the model), promises to transform the way marketers engage their customers in every type of trade show, retail, hospitality, stadium, arena, transportation and public event environment.

NanoLumens displays are designed and engineered with the environment in mind, and consume significantly less energy per square foot than conventional digital displays. Further emphasizing their commitment to eco-friendly technology, NanoLumens displays are composed of up to 50 percent reclaimed materials, and are completely recyclable. What’s more, some NanoLumens displays can be serviced from the front, making maintenance easier than ever before possible.

Designed and assembled in the United States, NanoLumens displays are available in both flexible and fixed frames in five product lines: NanoFlex™, NanoFlex Wrap, and NanoFlex Ribbon flexible displays; NanoSlim™ fixed rectangular displays; and NanoShape™ fixed round, square, and triangular displays.

The company’s technology has been recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as a 2011 future-proof tech trend and was cited by The Wall Street Journal in its 2010 Technology Innovations Awards. NanoLumens’ technology also received the 2011 Breakthrough Technology of the Year Award at the American Technology Awards. Digital Signage Magazine awarded the NanoLumens NanoFlex a 2011 DIGI Award for “Best New Display Device – Non-LCD or Plasma.”

About NanoLumens:
Headquartered in Norcross, Georgia, NanoLumens, Inc. (www.nanolumens.com) is a privately held corporation engaged in the research, product development, marketing and sales of unique flexible and fixed displays that address a yawning technology gap in the $14 billion digital display industry. Since its founding in 2006, NanoLumens has built a portfolio of more than 20 international families of issued and filed patents on its flexible display technology that effectively address the commercial market void between relatively small flat-panel displays and huge, limited application LED boards. NanoLumens technology is not constrained by standard sizes and shapes, or by the weight, noise and cost issues traditionally associated with commercial LED products.
