RackLink products are the first of their kind that are capable of maintaining AV system reliability through automatic actions that include automatic reboot, turning on emergency fans and shutting down equipment for safety in overload or over-temperature conditions.

Designed from the integrator’s point of view, the RackLink system can be configured and managed for any level system ranging from simple to complex: it can be managed locally or remotely via its standard browser-based user interface and integrates easily with control systems via its open-architecture API. Accessibility ranges from local to RS-232, remote IP and web browser. Free mobile apps that provide instantaneous insight and control of any installed RackLink system are available for iPhone/ iPad and Android devices.

Key to RackLink’s practical use is its simple, plug-and-play functionality and communication flexibility. “Building the open platform architecture into RackLink was a priority,” said Murray Williams, Middle Atlantic Electrical/Electronic Product Manager “It was important for us to develop a system that offers cloud functionality without being dependent on it. The key advantage of this is its ability to integrate seamlessly into any environment regardless of the platform or communication requirements.”

RackLink units are available in 15A and 20A rackmount and in-line models, with controlled or monitor-only capabilities.

Prysm’s Digital Mannequin Selected to Help Create Immersive Runway Experience at Honeywell Aerospace’s NBAA Booth

Five Life-Size Digital Mannequins Bring Honeywell Aerospace’s Customers and Technology to Life at the 2011 National Business Aviation Association Annual Meeting & Conference

 

San Jose, CA- October 27- Digital display innovator, Prysm, announced earlier this month that the company’s Digital Mannequin displays were selected to enhance the Honeywell Aerospace in-booth experience during the 2011 National Business Aviation Association Annual Meeting & Conference that took place in Las Vegas, NV on October 10-12. Powered by Prysm’s revolutionary Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) technology, five Digital Mannequins standing seven-feet tall brought Honeywell Aerospace’s customers and technology to life with brilliant, high-definition video displays during the business aviation industry’s largest tradeshow.
 

“We are thrilled to have partnered with Honeywell Aerospace and its agency The Brand Experience for such an innovative project,” said Prysm’s co-founder and CEO Amit Jain. “This is a true testament to the quality and capabilities of Prysm’s display solution.”

 

During the show, Prysm’s Digital Mannequins were used as valuable sales tools bringing various Honeywell Aerospace products to life with stunning imagery and product videos. Each Digital Mannequin was used as a stand-alone presentation tool; designed with a custom touchpad interface controlled by the sales reps, the display on any tower could be easily changed to exhibit one of sixteen Honeywell Aerospace product presentations. As the sales reps met with attendees and told the story of the various Honeywell Aerospace products, the Digital Mannequins helped illustrate the product stories with short video presentations that include stats, pictures and design details.

 

“Using five of Prysm’s Digital Mannequins, we were able to create an immersive video experience where the audience actually felt like they are standing on the runway,” said Dale Tesmond, CEO of The Brand Experience, who provided both creative direction and executive production for the experience. “Working with teams from Prysm, 3Stage Design for the technology setup and design, and Sandlot Pictures for the display content, we’ve created an un-paralleled display that the Honeywell team is thrilled with.”

 

Additionally, the Digital Mannequin’s attracted and engaged audiences to the Honeywell Aerospace booth. At various times during the conference all five displays were synced together and streamed short videos depicting the everyday life of Honeywell Aerospace customers: from business jet pilots, to maintenance teams and FAA controllers.

 

Prysm’s LPD solutions break away from traditional display technologies by offering freeform flexibility, long-lasting performance, life-like, life-size and HD imagery that captivates audiences in any setting. Built on solid-state lasers that deliver brilliant image quality and the fastest video content, Prysm’s displays provide striking video viewable from 178-degrees. Running off of a standard 110V outlet and using up to 75% less power than traditional backlit or projection technology-based products, Prysm’s displays create high impact brand experiences without the need for special power or cooling infrastructure.
