Matrox and 3M Collaborate to Deliver Interactive Multi-Touch, Multi-Display Solutions

Multi-touch support across stretched multi-monitor desktops under Windows 7 simplifies interactive display wall implementation

Matrox® Graphics Inc. and 3M™ Touch Systems (subsidiary of the 3M Electronic Solutions Division) announced that both companies have validated a new 3M touch driver that will support multi-touch functionality across two, three or more 3M Multi-touch Displays powered by a variety of Matrox multi-monitor products. Integrators can now pair Matrox products with 3M Multi-touch Displays to create attention-grabbing, interactive digital signage and collaborative video walls that span multiple displays, without the need for touch overlays or licensing fees. Applications include interactive kiosks, way finding, retail and exhibit display walls, as well as collaborative multi-panel classroom, boardroom, and command & control installations.

Matrox and 3M Collaborate to Deliver Interactive Multi-Touch, Multi-Display Solutions

“With our Mura MPX, DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go products, multiple displays are seen as one large stretched desktop, and standard off-the-shelf touch displays typically have had difficulty supporting this stretched-desktop mode,” said Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “3M’s new driver overcomes this limitation and provides a simple way for integrators to add engaging interactivity to their multi-screen digital signage setups.”

“Many of our customers in retail, exhibit, and digital signage markets are seeking to create high-impact and memorable interactive user experiences for their customers by expanding the touch interface beyond a single display,” said Ian Kimball, Americas Marketing Manager, Touch Systems, 3M Electronic Solutions Division. “This newly-enabled functionality lets customers easily optimize multi-touch performance across multiple screens, which is ideal for multi-user collaborative applications.”

It can support even more users with optional Intel® solid-state drives. It ingests “pre groomed” (pre formatted) live streams, then adds wrappers and protocols that are needed by today’s mobile devices, set top boxes, and OTT equipped televisions. Since this server automatically discovers files on other servers, some customers use it to create or augment their CDNs.

7. Transport Stream Multiviewer and Monitoring System — IP Check
The IP Check is a real time multi-window MPEG-2 or H.264 IP transport stream monitoring system for viewing, monitoring, and logging errors in multi program IP streams. It monitors video freezes, black screens, video loss, audio loss, loss of subtitles, and audio levels.

SYMETRIX SYMNET RADIUS REVITALIZES THE AUDIO AT THE HISTORIC SUFFOLK THEATER

RIVERHEAD, NEW YORK – NOVEMBER 2013: The Suffolk Theater in historic downtown Riverhead, New York opened its doors for the first time in 1933, and the public faithfully filled its resplendent art-deco interior night after night. Movies put the theater in the black for decades, but proliferating strip malls, the rise of the multiplex, and America’s seedy love affair with the living room couch decimated the Suffolk’s crowds and led to its final performance in 1987. The story is hardly unique to The Suffolk, and twenty years passed before area residents realized what they lost in the bargain. In the past decade, the tides turned, and, under new ownership, The Suffolk Theater responded with the sound of renovation. It recently reopened to tremendous fanfare, and beneath its carefully-restored Depression-era art-deco façade breathes a 21st Century audio/video/lighting system that includes a 36-input/20-output Symetrix SymNet Radius 12×8 Dante networked DSP system.

Award-winning theatre and A/V designer Stuart Allyn of A.D.R. Studios (Irvington, New York) designed and commissioned the new theatrical/audio/video systems at The Suffolk Theater, and Theatrical Services and Supplies (Hauppauge, New York) installed it. “Of course, a lot of thought goes into every aspect of a system like this,” said Allyn. “I went with the SymNet Radius 12×8 because it’s a cost-effective processor that is totally flexible, both in terms of its processing power and its input/output count.” The Suffolk Theater needed a large number of inputs and outputs because the entire system throughout the building is fed from the central FOH position. A wide number of areas (bars, offices, restrooms, backstage, etc.) are all capable of receiving the main show audio (and video in some cases) plus each area, at the touch of a button, can optionally receive a local source such as cable TV or a Blu-ray player. Each area when viewing the stage feed must be time aligned to the stage, and when viewing local sources that timing needs to be synced to the video. Each “zone” required speaker processing for each mode of operation. By having all the system processing centralized and separate, sound mixers using the digital mixing system are free to use whatever systems, EQs etc. they desire to use in the console, while the main speaker and system processing remains in place. The Symetrix system handled all that very easily. To the twelve inputs and eight outputs of the system’s single Radius 12×8, Allyn added two Symetrix SymNet xIn 12 expansion boxes and one Symetrix SymNet xOut 12. Like all products in the Symetrix SymNet Radius and Edge family, the expansion boxes connect to the processor via the robust, low-latency Dante network protocol.

“We’ve used a lot of Symetrix products in the past, and we’ve never had issues,” said Allyn. “Symetrix equipment sounds good and works well at commissioning and over the long haul. In addition, I like using SymNet Composer to build customized processing. I can see the entire system on one screen, and that overview is important to me. Then I can drill down as needed.” The system includes comprehensive Crestron control, but that didn’t stop Allyn from making cost-effective use of Symetrix’ inexpensive ARC-2e wall panel remotes. Eight ARC-2e’s placed at strategic locations in ancillary rooms and spaces allow users to select from presets and to change input sources and volumes. Indeed, several of the Symetrix ARC-2e’s send command strings to the SymNet Radius 12×8 system and to the system’s Crestron video switcher!

Although the super low latency Dante network plays no larger role in the system, the scalability of the Symetrix SymNet system via Dante was a critical factor in its selection. “We designed the system with foresight of possible future expansion in mind,” said Allyn. “There’s a lot of extra wiring in place that will allow them to expand the stage and the dressing room areas. If needed, we can simply add another Symetrix SymNet Radius 12×8 to the system via Dante to accommodate even more inputs, outputs, and processing. It is a beautiful venue that should provide great entertainment to Long Island for many years to come.”
