IC Realtime Adds 20,000 Square Foot Integration Center to Florida Corporate Office

IC Realtime's Experience Center Showroom

Showroom demonstrates brand’s surveillance cameras, video recorders and Apps live, including integration into leading home automation, computer and mobile platforms; also new are a dedicated training center and a larger tech support facility

Pompano Beach, FL – March 28, 2013 – IC Realtime, a global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced visual surveillance solutions for residential and commercial applications — with US corporate headquarters in Pompano Beach, Florida and a satellite office in Goodyear, Arizona — today announced that it has expanded its Florida offices to accommodate a brand-new 20,000 square foot integration center. Now open and fully-operational, the center adds a state-of-the-art demonstration showroom, a dedicated training center and an expanded tech support / R&D lab.

The first thing visitors experience when they enter IC Realtime’s main corporate entrance is the fully-equipped showroom replete with individual workstations demonstrating the company’s many analog and IP cameras, DVRs, NVRs, Apps and accessories – all live, in action. Also in place are workstations that show IC Realtime’s products fully-integrated into RTI, Control4, Crestron and Savant environments.

In the middle of the showroom stands a display center equipped with all the mobile devices that the company supports including Kindle, Windows8, Android and Apple (both mobile and home) platforms.

Another focal point of the showroom is a demonstration of IC Realtime’s I-Sniper technology which illustrates how special sensors in the cameras capture images in detail both night and day, even under challenging mixed-lighting conditions. This “pixel-by-pixel” enhancement technology is created exclusively for IC Realtime by Pixim, Inc.

IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor has opened the showroom to security and AV dealers interested in demonstrating the company’s solutions to their clientele. In addition, Sailor intends to fly-in dealers from around the US to experience the showroom and get better acquainted with IC Realtime.

IC Realtime’s sales and technical teams are also available to conduct demonstrations to dealers and their clientele. Standard showroom hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8 AM – 6 PM. Special after-hours appointments can be made as well.

Annexed to the showroom is a brand-new training center that comfortably seats 40 people. Making for more interactive and robust training sessions, the facility incorporates digital whiteboards that communicate via Bluetooth. IC Realtime plans to offer educational classes throughout the year that earn participants 2 CEDIA University credits.

Also in place is a new-and-improved lab that IC Realtime uses for research and development and technical support. The lab is 4 times larger than the company’s previous lab and incorporates new testing areas for newly developed product, R&D equipment, and specialty projects. In total the company employs more than 30 people in the lab.

According to Sailor, the integration center cost IC Realtime more than $300,000 to build. “We’ve put our money where our mouth is here,” says Sailor. “The showroom is designed to show — not talk about — how our products truly integrate with these multiple platforms.”

The integration center is situated at IC Realtime’s US headquarters, located at 3050 North Andrews Ave Extension, Pompano Beach, FL 33064 – only minutes from Interstate I-95. Dealers interested in visiting should call 954.772.5327 or email info@icrealtime.com.

Later this year, IC Realtime plans to put in place a 10,000 square foot integration center in its Arizona office.

Screen Innovations Black Diamond Motorized Projection Screen is now Shipping Worldwide

Innovative Black Diamond Motorized Screen Technology is Easy to Install and Delivers Impressive Image Quality While Preserving Room Aesthetics

Austin, TX  – March 28, 2013 – Screen Innovations(SI), a leading US-

Black Diamond Motorized is a unique and elegant alternative to flat panel TVs.

based manufacturer of projection screens and associated technologies, announced today that the much-anticipated Black Diamond Motorized projection screen is now shipping to integrators and end users worldwide.

Black Diamond™ Motorized

 

Featuring a brand new and truly unique motorized design utilizing SI’s award-winning Black Diamond ambient light rejection screen technology, Black Diamond Motorized is a sleek and sexy flat panel alternative that delivers stunning images yet disappears when not in use, making it ideal for virtually any environment or application.

Utilizing one motor, four custom helixes, and a spool of slender aircraft cable, Black Diamond Motorized silently lowers a thin wing containing the rolled Black Diamond screen downward from a recessed ceiling-mounted cassette. The cable-hung wing then stops, and from it, a small tube quickly emerges and lowers itself down to an adjustable, pre-determined image height, leaving only the image space in sight. Because Black Diamond screens do not require masking or any black drop material whatsoever, there is no visible material above, below, or on either side of the screen surface, allowing the images projected on Black Diamond Motorized to appear as though they are suspended in air.

Unlike flat panel TVs, Black Diamond Motorized delivers zero glare and reflection when used in a bright environment, and by virtue of its industry-leading Black Diamond ambient light rejection screen technology, light scatter is measurably reduced by over 75%. Delivering a next-level entertainment experience while literally disappearing into the room’s existing décor when not in use, Black Diamond Motorized appeals to the senses – and satisfies the needs of - a diverse audience in either residential or commercial environments. Black Diamond Motorized is the ultimate blend of art + science.

Display Development Moving On Up

Batavia, NY—March 2013—Display Development, innovator of the Residential Architectural Video System category, is thrilled to announce the expansion of their facility in Batavia, New York. The additional 4,000 square feet will accommodate manufacturing, light assembly, engineering, and distribution.

“We were very fortunate that the space adjacent to our current location became available,” said Jim Burns, president of Display Development. “Our business is exploding, and we needed to accommodate the demands of this growth. While it’s tempting in this real estate market to purchase space, we didn’t want to invest in something we may outgrow—it’s an exciting time for our company.”

Display Development recently introduced their IW7 and IW8 in-wall display systems, which offer extreme flexibility for an unprecedented value. The IW systems create a display solution far superior to a flat panel in terms of image size and fidelity, and overall experience, with no impact on a room’s décor—when not in use, the system can be completely concealed.

Display Development is located at 56 Harvester Ave, Batavia, New York, 14020. You can also find Display Development at Twitter (@DisplayDev) and on Facebook.

RackLink™ System Now Compliant with InfoComm Energy Management Standard


Fairfield, NJ–– With its latest firmware update, all models in Middle Atlantic Products’ suite of RackLink™ Power Management products now fully support InfoComm’s recently published Energy Management Standard. RackLink products provide integrators and facility managers with the necessary features and functionality to implement the standard. These include the monitoring and logging of power consumption, room occupancy and outlet state, as well as individual control of connected devices.

The standard, which provides a guideline for efficient energy management of AV systems through the control, monitoring, and conservation of electric power, was published in June of last year. RackLink models are currently the industry’s only available option to meet certain requirements of the standard such as power factor monitoring and providing a fine degree of resolution in their measurement accuracy.

Audiovisual control system solutions company Control Concepts partnered with Middle Atlantic to develop the RackLink system’s critical open-architecture communication with control systems. Control Concepts President Steve Greenblatt also served as a member of the InfoComm Energy Management Standard Task Group. He notes, “Middle Atlantic has shown a commitment to the InfoComm Energy Management standard from the onset of RackLinkTM product development ensuring that the design and control capabilities meet all the requirements in addition to including a host of added features. Middle Atlantic went as far as to upgrade firmware, software, and control modules once the standard was released to address specific nuances added prior to finalization.”

“RackLink was designed to enable the best possible practices in ensuring power-efficient AV systems,” said Bob Schluter, Middle Atlantic Founder and fellow member of the InfoComm Energy Management Standard Task Group. He also noted the ease with which the RackLink system complies with the standard: “All the required measurements are consolidated in one box, so there’s no need to mix data from separate places. RackLink systems also output that data in a useable format that requires no manipulation.”

New ihiji and SnapAV Partnership enables dealers to detect, diagnose and resolve issues with simple one-click reboots of WattBox™ IP power outlets from any mobile or desktop web browser

New ihiji and SnapAV Partnership enables dealers to detect, diagnose and resolve issues with simple one-click reboots of WattBox™ IP power outlets from any mobile or desktop web browser

Combined functionality cited as having the potential to end costly and cumbersome service calls

Austin, TX – March 11, 2013 – ihiji and SnapAV have partnered to provide simplified cloud-based power management of SnapAV WattBox™ IP products using ihiji’s NetNinja suite within the ihiji invision web portal. This immediately benefits both ihiji and SnapAV’s dealers by providing simple and secure access to all of their WattBox installations from a centralized invision dashboard. Consolidating this data eliminates the need to incorporate multiple remote monitoring systems to gain insight into the health and wellbeing of a growing assortment of connected devices. Dealers can now manage power, network, and control system devices from SnapAV and other manufacturers without the confusion associated with utilizing multiple tools.

Beyond WattBox products, ihiji’s NetNinja suite supports soft reboots of many other devices such as Control Processors, Touch panels and DirecTV receivers, as well as hard power cycles through Power Over Ethernet switches, which enable one-click reboots of PoE ports. By incorporating SnapAV WattBox functionality, this powerful new combination creates one of the most robust, yet cost-effective, remote monitoring and management solutions available.

“We believe the functionality and price point of SnapAV’s WattBox combined with ihiji’s invision service will help dealers maximize their scarcest resources – time and money. By adding support for yet another of the industry’s leading brands to the invision system, we are strengthening our dealer-centric ecosystem while continuing to simplify remote monitoring and management. This highly valuable set of tools and services increases dealer efficiency and enables stronger service contract programs, which is a cornerstone of any successful operation,” said Michael Maniscalco, ihiji Vice President of Technology.

“We’re excited to partner with an innovative company like ihiji,” says David Moore, Vice President of Engineering at SnapAV. “Their product gives our dealers a great option for cloud-based remote monitoring of multiple WattBox products in one dashboard. It’s just one more way to make our dealers’ lives easier, and we want to do that with every product we make and every company we partner with.”

Installing the ihiji invision system is simple. The solution was engineered to eliminate the need for on-site network configuration, port forwarding, and firewall configuration to ensure a rapid and secure installation and ongoing access when a reboot is needed. Dealers benefit from immediate time and cost savings from reduced truck rolls and warranty service calls. As David Moore of SnapAV noted, “This solution quite possibly represents the end of service calls.”

Dealers interested in learning more about how ihiji’s cloud based solution can complement the SnapAV WattBox line or those wishing to gain access to a recently recorded ihiji and SnapAV webinar are invited to contact David Rench of ihiji at (512) 538-0520 or SnapAV Sales at (866) 424-4489.

Casio Signage Drives Business and
Offers Infinite Applications

 

LAS VEGAS, NV (FEBRUARY 27, 2013) — Coming off the cusp of a successful Consumer Electronics Show, Casio America, Inc. is pleased to showcase its new digital signage business with its ground-breaking approach to storefront advertising at the Digital Signage Expo. As the hero application of Casio’s new digital signage business, Casio Signage takes a revolutionary new approach by leveraging optimum advertising tools and cloud services to attract new customers and increase repeat business. Casio Signage will be exhibited in Casio’s booth (#147) at the Digital Signage Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, February 27-28, 2013.

“Storefront advertising must be attractive, interesting and versatile in order to entice consumers to enter an establishment,” said Shigenori Itoh, Chairman and CEO of Casio America, Inc. “Casio Signage offers retailers and business owners a unique way to make consumers feel welcome, while delivering relevant content in a personal manner. We have no doubt that Casio Signage will
set a new standard for storefront advertising and change the industry as a whole.”

Casio Signage is a cutting-edge storefront advertising tool with the ability to captivate passers-by with a realistic-looking character that talks to them. Using a custom designed screen shaped like a character, content is created to match the characteristics needed to bring people into a store. The character’s appearance and voice can be easily changed to keep customers from losing interest and increase store traffic. Casio Signage is compact and requires no installation work, making it easy to place nearly anywhere. It also offers multilingual support or multifunctional options creating a fully customizable system with content that is most relevant for the customer base.

Together with innovative cloud services such as the distribution of digital coupons, stores with Casio Signage will enjoy an edge

Main Features of Casio Signage

  • Realistic images help captivate passers-by and attract new customers – The screen itself is shaped like a character or person, and speaks to visitors to get their attention and invite them in.

 

  • Content is easily updated to increase store traffic  – Retailers simply provide Casio with a still image and text. Casio then animates the image and adds the voice. No video production is required for stores. This process makes it easy to edit the animation for future use.

 

  • Compact size that can fit almost anywhere – It features a small 18” x 21.10” footprint. No installation work is required.

 

  • Multilingual support – Available languages include English, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, and more. Customers can select the language they want to hear.

Projector Stacking System and YA-S10 Converter System Offer Innovative Technology
with An Overall Lower Cost of Ownership

LAS VEGAS, NV (FEBRUARY 27, 2013) — Casio America Inc. , a leader in the digital projection industry, is proud to introduce two new systems ideal for a variety of digital signage applications – the Projector Stacking System and the YA-S10 Converter System. Featuring Casio’s LampFree™ LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source, the Projector Stacking System is available in two different models, the XJ SK650 and the XJ-SK600. The YA-S10 Converter System features cutting edge technology that allows a single projector to display images on curved surfaces. Both systems will be exhibited in Casio’s booth (#147) at the Digital Signage Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, February 27-28, 2013.

“As a leading provider of digital projection technology, we are constantly developing new applications that address the changing needs of the digital projection/signage industry,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “We are confident that our new Projector Stacking System and YA-S10 Converter System will increase efficiency and streamline costs for retailers and business owners alike, further raising industry standards and solidifying Casio’s presence as an industry leader.”

The Projector Stacking System, designed with two Casio projectors stacked on top of one another, projects two sharp, high-quality images, which the YA-S10 Converter System control box then merges into one screen. It is available in two different models; the XJ-SK650 and the XJ-SK600. The XJ-SK650 features double stacked Pro Series XJ-H2600 projectors and provides users with up to 6,500 lumens, while the XJ-SK600 features double stacked Signature Series XJ-M250 projectors and provides up to 6,000 lumens. Both of these models provide roughly twice the lumen output provided by a single projector.

The Projector Stacking System includes two (2) projectors, ceiling mount housing and the YA-S10 Converter System control box, which corrects and merges screen images. The system features high-precision correction and an interface that allows easy modifications using a remote control. The YA-S10 Converter System control box focuses on image alignment with each of the projectors in the Stacking System. When the YA-S10 Converter System correction box is connected, both projectors can also project high brightness images at any angle making the Projector Stacking System ideal for digital signage, sports bars, house of worship and many large venue applications.

When used separately Casio’s YA-S10 Converter System enables users to project images onto curved pillars, round areas, flat surfaces or any unique shape. The system is set up to adjust any image misalignment or distortion without the need for additional hardware. Using the YA-S10 Converter System with any Casio LampFree™ projector, images can be corrected for curved surfaces using free-form surface compensation with a lattice of up to 81 grid points for adjustments.

Both the Projector Stacking System and Convex System are powered by Casio’s state-of-the-art LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source, which provides Lamp-Free, eco-friendly data projection at a percentage of the cost of traditional projectors. Casio’s LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source combines blue laser light and a fluorescent element to generate a high output of green light. The green light, blue laser light, and the light emitted by a red LED are projected through a DLP® chip which, in turn, is passed through the projection lens to form an image. This technology achieves an increase in color spectrum compared with a mercury lamp, while lowering a projector’s total cost of ownership and maximizing investment. Since there is only minimal loss of brightness even during long-term use, it is ideal for those heavy-duty applications involving frequent use of projection such as retail stores, grocery stores, restaurants, offices and other environments. With an estimated life span of 20,000 hours, both systems ensure low
maintenance and streamlined costs.

Casio’s new Projector Stacking System and YA-S10 Converter System are currently available for purchase. For additional information regarding Casio LampFree™ projectors, please visit www.casioprojector.com.

Pro Audio Technology Appoints Two New Manufacturer Reps

Excellent margins, modular designs and a full line of cinema caliber audio products fuel Pro Audio Technology’s rapid growth.

Huntington Beach, CA – February 26, 2013 – Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the leader in professional-grade loudspeakers and DSP-programmable amplifier systems for residential properties, today announced the appointment of two new manufacturer’s representatives. Growing demand for discrete but powerful audio systems has made Pro Audio Technology (PRO) an appealing brand for dealers. To meet demand, PRO has announced the appointment of Lucas Sales and On Line Marketing as its exclusive representatives in two key territories.

“With no less than 23 large metropolitan areas covered between them, adding sales consultants in these territories is critical for continued growth,” said Larry Reagan, vice president of sales for Pro Audio technology. “With Lucas Sales based in Texas and On Line Marketing centered in Ohio, and each serving the surrounding states, PRO is poised to see strong growth and enhanced dealer support in these regions.“

Common to both firm’s line card is a major video projection and viewing screen line. In each case, the addition of Pro Audio Technology will help the firms solidify their offerings of complete reference A/V packages for high-performance theater and media room installations.

Mark Taylor, principal of On Line Marketing said, “We are excited about the addition of PRO products and the unique benefits they offer. PRO’s technology story perfectly complements the performance-based selling concept we promote to dealers, and will help our accounts attain higher sales and deliver a better audio experience.”

PRO’s multiple speaker series are voiced to a common performance standard and provide solutions that address a broad range of installation needs. By applying a single design philosophy across the entire range of products, installers are free to select models based on application, gaining greater flexibility when designing an audio system.

Sam Lucas, principal of The Charles Lucas Sales Company said, “Pro Audio Technology compliments our high end custom installation products for home theater. They offer great dynamics, high SPL and most important clear vocal intelligibility. We are delighted to offer the very best in home theater systems.”

A hallmark of PRO engineering technology, each system is field-configurable and employs the company’s proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) via its PMA amplifier product range. All crossover functions, high-resolution frequency response shaping, and time correction are achieved in DSP, eliminating restrictive passive filter networks from the signal path. In addition, the integrator is given a powerful suite of DSP controls to compensate for environmental influences, such as speaker placement behind viewing screens or stretch fabric walls, secondary boundary loading, and other factors. Different than a typical room correction system, the PMAs don’t change the frequency response of speakers to accommodate sitting positions, which can fundamentally alter the sound, but rather adjust output to compensate for room conditions, which lets the speakers perform as the designer intended.

Information on PRO’s new manufacturer’s representatives and their respective regions is below.

Territory: Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma

On Line Marketing
Territory: Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Western Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kentucky
