Small Tree Demonstrates Magma’s ExpressBox 3T Expansion Chassis for Thunderbolt Technology at Infocomm 2012

At Infocomm 2012, Small Tree (Booth C5654 – Technologies for Worship pavilion) will demonstrate the ExpressBox 3T, recently introduced by Magma, which is the first three-slot PCI Express expansion chassis for Thunderbolt technology.

ExpressBox 3T, an ‘outside-the-box’ solution for using PCIe cards with Thunderbolt-equipped computers to enhance high performance workflows, is fully compatible with network software drivers developed by Small Tree.

“Magma and Small Tree have worked closely to ensure compatibility and high performance of our market leading Thunderbolt products,” said Randy Jones, president and CEO of Magma, developer and manufacturer of PCI & PCI Express Expansion Systems for servers, desktops and portable platforms. “Small Tree’s reputation as Mac Network and Ethernet based shared storage experts and Magma’s long standing expertise in expansion technology will provide customers with rock solid solutions leveraging the breakthrough Thunderbolt technology.”

Small Tree’s network software drivers were validated by Magma to be fully functional with ExpressBox 3T after undergoing and passing a series of rugged performance tests conducted at Magma’s San Diego facility.

“Small Tree was one of our first partners to provide fully compliant drivers that incorporate Thunderbolt expansion support for their 10Gige PCIe card,” Jones continued. “Support for advanced Thunderbolt features, like hot-plug and sleep, creates a positive user experience because it allows for graceful exit from applications in the event of an unexpected removal of the cable.”

For Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree, demonstrating Magma’s ExpressBox 3T at Infocomm is an illustration of the company’s ongoing commitment to providing solutions that promote real-time collaboration. “As the shift to Thunderbolt technology evolves, Small Tree will continue to offer shared storage and networking solutions that meet the industry’s demands,” said Seeber, president of Small Tree. “With the introduction of ExpressBox 3T, Magma has developed a leading-edge expansion solution that will add tremendous value to editing teams looking to maximize their efficiency and workflow, whether it’s large post-production facilities working on movies and TV shows for mass consumption, or small to mid-size teams at churches and universities working on projects for specific audiences.”

“Thunderbolt delivers unparalleled performance, flexibility and simplicity to personal computing.” said Jason Ziller, Intel’s director of Thunderbolt Marketing. “Products like Magma’s ExpressBox 3T and Small Tree’s network software drivers for Intel’s 10G Ethernet Converged Networking Adapter X540-T2 help highlight what Thunderbolt makes possible.”

One party to rule them all at InfoComm 2012

Norway’s projectiondesign® to partner with BOI Solutions, Inc. at InfoComm 2012

Ohio-based integrator to provide 16-channel projected visualization solution with diverse market applications

The migration of immersive displays to the worlds of enterprise conferencing and collaboration will be a key theme for projectiondesign® at this year’s InfoComm 2012 show, as the Norwegian manufacturer teams up with BOI Solutions, Inc., to showcase its F22 projectors integrated in a 16-channel visualization solution on its booth in Las Vegas.

“We use projectiondesign projectors with our top customers ranging from Procter & Gamble (P&G) through to Starbucks, NFL Films, Honda and the U.S. Military. BOI Solutions designs research simulators and high-end conference rooms using the highest levels of video and audio systems engineering. Based in Ohio, the firm has pioneered the convergence of immersive displays with corporate meeting-room systems, even designing a unique conference-room concept – known as the Business Sphere – around a curved screen for which it co-holds a patent with P&G,” says Bill Othick, vice-president of BOI.

“Our company is a think-tank that designs working spaces, as opposed to a typical audio-visual firm that installs equipment in certain kinds of rooms,” adds Bill Othick. “When you make data really visual, it is quicker and easier to process than if it simply sits on a spreadsheet or a PowerPoint presentation.”

By applying techniques more commonly used in product visualization – such as the edge-blending and warping of multiple projected images and high-quality, multi-channel surround sound – to meeting rooms, BOI helps enterprises change the way they think about business, bringing market reports and strategies to life in the same way that a new product or landscape can be viewed from any angle in an industrial or military simulation environment.

Such an approach requires BOI to stay at the forefront of audiovisual technology, and Othick says he could not ask for a more responsive partner than projectiondesign.

“Our success is driven by our ability to integrate technologies of higher and higher performance capabilities, and we’ve used projectiondesign in many jobs for clients such as P&G and NFL Films,” adds Othick. “The resolution of the projectors is excellent, their imaging is ultra-dependable, and the service and support we receive from the company is second to none.

“We’re excited about being part of projectiondesign’s InfoComm exhibit plans and look forward to meeting current and future end-customers while they are literally right in front of our unique approach to visualization.”

Anders Løkke, Marketing Director, projectiondesign, adds: “The InfoComm show always delivers a strong mix of international integrators and end-users, and we believe our 16-channel projected display, designed and built in partnership with BOI, will inspire both communities to see how visualization displays are moving from niche markets into everyday enterprise communication.”

Set up and alignment of all projectors in the BOI Solutions 16-channel visualization wall at InfoComm is achieved using Scalable Display Technologies’ software and expertise.

Sound Works Productions Supports Northwestern’s PhilFest

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Big Daddy Love and Paper Thick Walls performed at the Northwestern University (Evanston, Illinois) 2012 Philfest held in mid-May. The annual bluegrass concert, co-sponsored by A&O Productions and Students for Ecological and Environmental Development (SEED), is held in memory of Phil Semmer, a SEED member who passed away while studying abroad. The event raises money for the Rocky Mountain Institute; an organization that researches more effective use of resources and that Semmer aspired to join after graduation.

Sound Works Productions of Frankfort, Illinois, not only staffed the event (Eric Lindholm at Front of House, Daniel Nickleski at Monitors and Kevin Flasza as Stage Tech), but also provided a NEXO GEO S line array for the main PA along with a Yamaha M7CL-48 digital console for FOH and LS9-32 for monitors.

The NEXO GEO S12 was configured as eight GEO S1210s, two GEO S1230s for mains, two PS10s used for front fills, four RS18 Ray Subs, and three 4×4 NXAmps.

“Every time our GEO S12 rig goes out it never ceases to amaze our clients,” says Nickleski. “The versatility, ease of set up, and the consistent sound quality are what keeps our clients coming back.”

New Broadcast Pix Fluent Rapid CG 2 Software Integrates with Daktronics Scoreboards for Instant, Automatic CG Updates

Billerica, Massachusetts – Today Broadcast Pix™ has made available for download the release version of its new Fluent Rapid CG™ 2 software option for its Granite™ and Mica™ Video Control Centers™.

Dataton brings colour, movement and sound to Les Baux de Provence

Videmus supplies WATCHOUT to enable transformation of stone labyrinth onto ‘Quarries of Light’

Dataton is delighted to announce that its WATCHOUT multi-display and show-management software has been used as a core technology at a major new art installation in the south of France.

A collaboration between the town of Les Baux de Provence and the specialist French venue management company Culturespaces, ‘Carrières de Lumières’ (‘Quarries of Light’) is a hi-tech re-purposing of the Carrières du Val d’Enfer – a network of abandoned chalk-mining tunnels close to the historic Provençal village.

With a subterranean feel, the Carrières de Lumières is a labyrinth almost 200 metres long that varies in height between 10 and 15 metres. In its newly re-invented form, the space provides the perfect backdrop for large-scale video projection – a place where visitors can view images close to or from a greater distance away, while the unique texture of the chalk surfaces adds further visual interest to whatever artistic content is being displayed.

The Carrières de Lumières opened to the public in March of this year with its first show – ‘Gauguin, Van Gogh, les peintres de la couleur.’ The show, which literally throws new light on the colours used by two of art history’s most celebrated painters by projecting still photographs and video animations oftheir works, was commissioned from designer Gianfranco Iannuzzi by Culturespace founder Bruno Monnier.

As well as the walls of the former quarry, the show uses the floor as a projection surface, while a discreetly installed audio system plays a series of atmospheric 12-track musical backgrounds through a network of 50 loudspeakers. A stage-lighting setup based on LED sources accentuates the stonework with raking light at times when the ‘screens’ are not showing any content.

In all, there are 68 video projectors, all ceiling-mounted to minimize the impact of projected light beams on visitors. Each projector has its own server content running an individual Dataton WATCHOUT™ channels. These, together with a second machine running the Medialon Manager show-control system with which WATCHOUT runs in sync, make a total of 70 devices in total – all housed in an air-conditioned control room located on-site but accessible only by staff.

The WATCHOUT-equipped servers were supplied by Videmus, Dataton’s partner for WATCHOUT in France. The company worked closely with an installation team led by technical manager Sebastien Chapuis, and with project staff Mathieu Delfine, Florence Amat and Agathe Poisson.

“The project team liked the WATCHOUT solution because of its simplicity,” explains Eric Lambert, managing director, Videmus. “As well as ensuring that all the projectors receive their video content at full resolution and in perfect sync with each other, WATCHOUT also uses MIDI commands to sequence the on-site audio DSP settings so that the right soundtrack is played through the right speakers at the right time, while at the same time controlling a DMX-512 universe for the LED lighting.

“All this is then managed by Medialon Manager show-control system, which operates a seven-day calendar so that the show begins and ends every day, at the right time of day, without the staff having to worry about a thing.”

Fredrik Svahnberg, Marketing Director, Dataton, comments: “The Carrières de Lumières is a fantastic space in which to appreciate art and represents a brilliant usage of WATCHOUT. The effects created are truly stunning and we feel sure that they will lead to a greater appreciation not just of these great paintings, but also of the old stone quarry itself.”

The final word goes to the show’s designer, Gianfranco Iannuzzi, who enthuses: “The deployment of WATCHOUT and the support of Videmus during the three months of setup for this show were truly invaluable. They allowed me to devote myselfentirely to the design and content creation which, with the help of my staff, Massimiliano Siccardi and Renato Gatto, we managed to realize on time and with, we believe, truly unique results.”
