High Resolution Systems’ UDC-400 Universal Device Controller proved to be an invaluable tool for Jason Spencer who directed the recent North American regional convention for Nu Skin Enterprises at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. A software-based control platform that allows simple to setup, cost-effective control of devices using IP (TCP/UDP) or serial (232/422/485) protocols, the UDC-400 enabled Spencer to control the output of the router from the Front of House so he could view the different sources and two preview/program feeds on his monitor.

Nu Skin Enterprises is a direct-selling company that markets premium-quality personal care products under the Nu Skin brand, science-based nutritional supplements under the Pharmanex brand and technology-based products and services under the Big Planet brand. The company’s North American regional convention was held October 6-9 with more

Hollywood Boulevard has always been a magnet for tourists who converge on the avenue to view its iconic sights, and now they have a new attraction to engage their attention. The Guinness World Records Museum’s interactive Planar video wall, provided and installed by Electrosonic, uses gesture-based technology to capture the movements of passers-by and animate unique custom characters in 3D space.
