Christie’s Projection Mapping Display Comes Alive at LDI 2013

A stunning and captivating projection mapping presentation is the showpiece of the Christie® LDI trade show booth in Las Vegas Nov. 22-24. The colorful and exciting booth features two interactive projection mapping displays including a 6-foot wide by 3-feet tall interactive preview of an upcoming Christie book featuring the most innovative projection mapping projects from around the world.

Proyección de Ideas Takes Center Stage for Projection Mapping Display
Producing both engaging projection mapping exhibits is Chile-based Proyección de Ideas (P.I.). The multi-faceted audio visual company has produced over 1,400 events and is renowned for creating gorgeous projection mapping performances throughout both North and South America and, as a Christie partner, will be on hand to discuss how to turn projection mapping dreams into reality. P.I. joined Christie at both LDI 2012 and InfoComm 2013, developing content that played on P.I. servers.

The exhibit uses two Christie HD14K-M 3-chip DLP® projectors controlled by the P.I. Mambo Player media server system. Proyección de Ideas’ Mambo Player will also be controlling another multi-touch screen with images provided by two Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP® projectors. All content is high resolution and attendees can engage with the multi-touch interface.

A second Mambo Player will be controlling the Christie MicroTiles video walls and both the both the Christie YK50 and Christie YK100 projector yokes.

Award Winning Nitro Solutions, Christie M Series and J Series, Flat Panels, and Christie MicroTiles Complete Christie Booth
Christie’s spacious and inviting booth also features the Christie Nitro Solutions family, Christie J Series 3-chip DLP® projectors, the Christie FHD551-W and Christie FHD551-X flat panels. Two 2-units wide by 5-units tall Christie® MicroTiles® arrays frame the booth.

The Christie YK50 is a small, dual-arm projector yoke and is suitable for moving projection applications in houses of worship, museums, trade shows, nightclubs and other venues where space is limited.

A single-arm yoke, the Christie YK100 is designed for the Christie M Series with projector control managed via DMX protocol – enabling users to integrate and control lighting equipment and video projectors with the same console.

Introduced early this year, the WeatherAll™ Christie FHD551-W LED edge lit LCD 55-inch flat panel with full HD and optically bonded glass is designed to carry the message outdoors. Weatherproof and designed to withstand the elements, its high brightness LCD and durability communicates to audiences regardless of weather conditions.
The ultra-narrow bezel Christie FHD551-X flat panel offers full HD resolution, high pixel density and an LED-backlit screen. Suitable for a variety of indoor environments, the Christie FHD551-X provides sharp images from any distance.

The Christie J Series targets a variety of applications within the rental staging and fixed installation markets that require high brightness, superior performance and crisp, clear images every time – all in a compact, rugged and reliable package. The Christie J Series includes 2D and 3D-capable models, a range of brightness levels from 6200 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens, and SXGA+, HD and WUXGA resolutions.

Creating extraordinary visual displays, Christie MicroTiles offer substantially brighter images, a much broader color palette, and a virtually seamless canvas compared to conventional flat panel LCD and plasma displays.

A Christie Spyder X20 video processor will be in the booth and, directly across the aisle, at the coolux Media Systems booth, six Christie J Series 3-chip DLP® projectors will be displayed.

An LDI Gold Sponsor, Christie is presenting Projection Master Classes using two Christie HD20K-J and two Christie DHD775-E projectors.

The two companies now offer dedicated sale and support of world’s largest and most comprehensive range of Scalers

Electronics designer, manufacturer and supplier, Kramer Electronics, Ltd., and Calibre UK, British electronics manufacturer, announce their global joint sales, supply, development and business co-operation agreement.

Integrated products focused on innovation

Calibre’s key models for the Pro-AV & Broadcast industries are to be incorporated into Kramer’s product line-up in Q4 this year. This strengthens Kramer’s range by the addition of a new line of premium scalers including powerful low-latency processing, warping, geometry correction and edge-blending with models for fixed installation and rental and staging, as well as models targeted at LED videowalls and television broadcast studios.

With obvious customer benefits, the two companies have also agreed to work together to accelerate Calibre’s future product developments and have ambitious plans to roll out a comprehensive range of market-leading premium video processing, routing and control products.

Think local, act global

To support customers and the implementation of new product introductions, Kramer Electronics will supply dedicated resources to support and market these new models throughout Kramer Electronics’ worldwide network of more than 20 regional offices.

Tim Brooksbank, Chairman at Calibre, will head up this effort within Kramer as well as maintaining his Calibre role: “Having just passed our 25-year anniversary at Calibre, this cooperation with Kramer marks an exciting start to our next quarter century. We will continue independently with our OEM and own-label business activities, but with Calibre-branded products being progressively merged into the Kramer range. This opens up access to a far wider market for our products and helps Kramer strengthen its presence in its premium markets. I’m really enthusiastic about being able to work so closely with the people at Kramer. Our planned future product developments are particularly interesting and will greatly expand both companies’ capabilities and market.”

“This strategic co-operation with Calibre is of great benefit to both companies and to our customers alike”, says Dr. Joseph Kramer, Founder, President & Chairman of Kramer Electronics and recent recipient of the 2013 Pioneer of AV Award. “Kramer and Calibre together offer market-leading technologies with outstanding performance and customer support from a truly international, professional AV organisation. Together we will move forwards developing a comprehensive range of powerful premium video processing and control products for the live events, rental, staging and fixed install markets with a focus on class-leading visual and functional performance.

Christian Music Broadcasters Organization Strengthens its “Momentum” with Elite Multimedia Productions

For its signature annual event bringing together radio and record industry professionals under one roof, the Christian Music Broadcasters (CMB) organization tapped Elite Multimedia Productions to handle complete production services at Momentum 2013.

More than 600 attendees recently journeyed to the Disney Yacht & Beach Club Convention Center in Orlando to participate in Momentum 2013 and its four days of music, workshops and other activities related to the Christian music industry. Given the impact the event can have on a musician or band’s career, delivering exceptional production services is a major priority for the CMB team.

“Momentum is a critical springboard for musicians looking to make an impression on broadcasters in hopes of securing more time for their songs across public airwaves,” stated Michelle Younkman, CMB’s executive director. “As such, it is vital that we provide our musical acts with a production level that enhances, not detracts, from their live performance.”

Over the course of the four day event, more than 40 bands performed on the main stage in the hotel’s main ballroom. Elite Multimedia Productions, a professional sound, lighting, and video company based in Nashville , provided event organizers and performers with peace of mind by creating a warm and engaging environment featuring rich visuals, optimal sound and superior lighting.

“We know that our artists and our record companies need to feel the security of having the highest quality professional services available to them,” Younkman said. “Having Elite Multimedia Productions on-site to handle the entire production for Momentum enabled everyone in attendance to focus exclusively on what was most important to them for a successful event.”

For the main stage, Elite used an Avid Profile Desk – one for monitors and one for front of house – while flying three clusters of three line arrays featuring the Electro Voice EV XLD281. To provide seamless transitions between musical presentations, the company utilized Midas Pro 2 for production inputs. In an effort to help each act individualize its set, Elite enhanced visuals by featuring PixelFLEX’s lightweight, ultra-flexible 20mm LED video curtain panel upstage, enabling the musicians to change the look of their performance.

“The primary challenge for CMB’s Momentum this year was the number of acts and the tight time frames for their set,” said Tom Wilson, vice president of event production for Elite. “That had to be carefully orchestrated to ensure that each performer had adequate time to set up so that they could focus solely on their performance without having to worry about external concerns. My team worked well in advance with each act to plan and integrate the transitions from one to the next.”

In addition to handling services to the main stage, Elite also was charged with production on the event’s second stage, which was also located in the main ballroom. The second stage – featuring a 10×17 rear projection screen fed by two Panasonic 10k projectors – was used by CMB for presentations by radio broadcasting professionals in-between musical performances. Elite’s ability to deliver unmatched support to both stages was one of the major benefits of working exclusively with one company, according to Younkman.

“Being able to feel 100 percent secure in knowing that we on the Momentum leadership team did not have to worry about anything in regards to production is priceless,” Younkman concluded. “Tom and the Elite team were able to work with us in an incredible way and really took care of us by providing a great service to the artists and our radio attendees. We look forward to working with them again on next year’s event.”

Elite Multimedia Productions provides turn-key production services to many popular recording artists, including Luke Bryan and Rodney Atkins, as well as for special events across the U.S.
