Shaping a Better World: Arup Deploys Pexip Globally

Large-scale enterprise-wide videoconferencing connects professionals

Independent professional services firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical specialists, Arup have deployed the Pexip® Infinity scalable software platform worldwide. The deployment will enable Arup’s 11,000 staff across 38 countries to use high definition video, voice and data collaboration and will also be used to connect to Arup’s clients.

“In Arup, we aim to introduce new, forward thinking, innovative and simple to operate technologies into our business. The deployment of Pexip Infinity will not only reinvent how our company communicates internally but will also change how we communicate with our external clients,” explained Roy Salfarlie, Head of AV, UKMEA AV Media Services at Arup.

Simen Teigre, CEO at Pexip said: “The way in which Arup have deployed our technology is testament to the simplified, interoperable and virtualized way in which our Infinity software helps people to collaborate. We look forward to enjoying a partnership with Arup for many years to come.”

Pexip ensures simplicity meets functionality

“Initially, within our proof of concept for next generation virtual meeting rooms, we were evaluating bridging solutions from three different vendors. However, we found these to be more complex than needed – they also required proprietary hardware and could not achieve satisfactory interoperability and HD video integration with Microsoft® Lync. Pexip Infinity was brought in through a revised vendor list. It met our requirements for a software-only solution and we had it working globally in less than two hours. We were really impressed,” explained Chris Ellen, Unified Messaging Team Lead at Arup.

Arup were traditionally using Cisco Jabber™ but wanted to extend their mobile video portfolio by introducing Microsoft Lync. “Using Pexip Infinity means you can dial in and use the same PC or device for a video call but at increased quality. We don’t have to license additional software clients either which is an attractive value proposition,” explained Ellen.

Video conferencing for today and beyond

Arup staff are issued with a personal Virtual Meeting Room with a PIN number for security. Individual users can control their conferences and view presentations from their own mobile phone or tablet.

“Our existing video infrastructure was physically restricted by the number of hardware boxes in our network. With Pexip Infinity, there’s no restriction on the number of people that can use the system. The platform is always on and always available, which enables the team to connect instantly whenever collaboration is required in their workflow,” said Ellen.

“Unlike traditional DSP-based MCU’s, Pexip’s conferencing nodes are virtual machines that can sit on either a VMware® or Microsoft Hyper-V infrastructure making use of standard server architecture. For Arup, minimal to no investment is required to start deploying the solution as we can utilize existing infrastructure. Being virtual also means conferencing capacity can be increased within minutes and the platform is inherently redundant.”

Arup intend to extend the solution to incorporate client meetings. “We can now use the Pexip WebRTC functionality for external meeting participants. In the past we had to ship a copy of Cisco Jabber™ and provision a user account. This was cumbersome for everyone involved, it introduced a delay and had a cost attached to it. With Pexip Infinity we now just email a URL and external callers can experience professional quality video via their web browser,” explained Ellen.

“As an early adopter of Infinity, we have been involved in beta testing and providing feedback directly to the Pexip development team. The openness we enjoy with Pexip is refreshing and it helps us to plan for the future. Pexip Infinity is a good strategic fit for Arup.”

Christie Display Technology Used at the Opening of Lusofonia Games 2014

The stunning visuals by award-winning projection designer and his team, BARTKRESA Design Inc., were displayed using Christie®’s compact, purpose-built projectors. This visual experience enthralled thousands of spectators who have gathered in Goa, India for the 3rd edition of the Lusofonia Games. The sporting event, which takes place January 18-29, features 40 Christie Roadster S+20K, Roadster S+22K-J and Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP® projectors at the opening ceremony that includes an impressive projection mapping show.

Audio Design, Christie’s local partner that is fully responsible for the Games’ visual display, collaborated with world-renowned projection designer BARTKRESA Design Inc. to create the stunning and engaging visual spectacle. BARTKRESA is known for delivering one-of-a-kind projection designs by combining industry-leading projectors and timeless artistry through brilliantly executed immersive projections.

The Christie projectors are installed strategically in six towers around the 22,000-seat Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium – the venue of the opening ceremony – and they have been accurately calibrated for maximum projection coverage and seamless edge blending onto the field during the event.

“We’re thrilled that Christie’s high performance projectors are being deployed at the Lusofonia Games for the first time and we’re confident that the entire show will be a spectacular visual feast,” said Navneet Wadhwa, managing director, Audio Design.

Vijay Sabhlok, director, Video Design, added, “The opening ceremony of the Games will be the biggest projection event that has ever been staged in India. This beats our very own best of 30 projectors used previously for the Umaid Bhawan projection mapping project.”

“The Lusofonia Games is a prestigious international sporting event and we’re delighted to be in the beautiful city of Goa to create stunning visuals that immerse and transport viewers on a journey of sporting excellence,” said Kresa. “We’ve worked very closely with the show director of the opening ceremony to bring out the energy and vibrancy of this event to the whole world.”

The performances at the opening ceremony encompass the spirit of “unity and pride”, which are the key elements of the Games, as well as the rich history and heritage of Indian and Goan culture that are celebrated through the theme “Panchatattva” – the five elements of nature comprising fire, water, earth, air and ether.

Keshav Chandra, CEO, Lusofonia Games, said, “This spectacular launch is a fitting precursor to this international sporting event. Goa has geared up to host athletes from the participating countries and we are very happy and proud to host this exciting event.”

Widely referred to as the Portuguese version of the British Commonwealth Games, the Lusofonia Games is organized by the Association of the Portuguese Speaking Olympic Committee (ACOLOP). It involves athletes and officials from 12 Portuguese-speaking countries, formerly ruled by Portugal. Among the countries taking part in the 12-day tournament are Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East Timor, Guinea-Bissau, Macau (China), Mozambique, Portugal and Sao Tome and Principe. Equatorial Guinea, India and Sri Lanka are associate members of the Games.

“It’s a great honor for us to be part of this major sports event for the first time and we’re delighted and proud that our high performance projectors are used in the grand opening ceremony to kick-start the Games in a big way,” said Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific. “It’s also wonderful to see thousands of spectators wowed by the awesome visuals that have definitely made the event even more memorable.”

Technical Direction Company (TDC) provides the perfect video backdrop for 27th ARIA Awards

Video display experts, Technical Direction Company (TDC) supplied all video technology elements for the 27th ARIA Awards held at The Star, Sydney, Australia on 1 December 2013.

The ARIA Awards are the official awards of the Australian Record Industry Association attended by an audience of over 4,000. The event was broadcast live on Channel 9’s “GO!” with performances from many Australian artists including Birds of Tokyo, Bliss n Eso and Tame Impala as well as special guest appearances from Alicia Keys and Lorde.

The ceremony was produced by Michael Long and Vicki Gerrans. Set design was by Kim Buddee. Stunning screen graphics were produced and operated by Rod Morris.

TDC supplied custom automated rolling screens with ultra-bright 26K HD projectors, that not only provided a uniform, succinct and clean look according to the set design but also acted as a mask for set changeovers. TDC also supplied 200 square metres of high-resolution LED video display as well as video projections and creative and scenic LED elements along with switching, control and technical crew.

ARIA Event Producer, Michael Long said: “We’ve worked with TDC for a number of years because they have quality product, they always deliver on time and within budget meeting our set designer needs and music act requirements. TDC has an excellent logistical and creative team that can cope well with any last minute changes.

“For the Birds of Tokyo, Tame Impala, Jessica Mauboy performances and various DJ’s we used all 4 LED screens on stage along with two side screens. We created a specific look for act changeover where TDC’s two large projection screens came down and covered the stage. Because the venue didn’t have the ceiling height, we had to think of something different and thankfully TDC had some special screens available. TDC suggested early on that we use 6×6 metre screens with custom-built truss to roll them in and out creating a seamless image and transition.”

Olin Winton, Technical Manager at Technical Direction Company said: “Creating a seamless video and LED video technology elements was vital to this project. We were able to utilize some of our highest resolution LED stock for the 27th ARIA Awards which created the perfect backdrop to the Australian and international music performances.”

The TDC Crew working on this project included:
Olin Winton
Kain Jones
Karl Johnstone
Will Day
Anthony Pellizzari

“We really appreciate the support that TDC gives the ARIA Awards and the Australian music industry,” ended Long.

Christie is “Front and Center” With Launch of New Series of Front Access Christie Entero HB Rear Projection Cubes

It’s “eyes front” for Christie®, a world leader in control room display technology, with the introduction of a new front access video wall cube product that enables seamless high performance rear projection video wall displays with minimal installation and maintenance space required. All the benefits of Christie’s latest and brightest Entero™ HB DLP® LED-based technology display are available in a platform that allows video wall cubes to be positioned directly against a rear wall, removing the need for maintenance space behind. The first front access cube model, the Christie Entero HB 70-inch HD, will be joined by other front access models including 50 inch and 70 inch SXGA+, and 72 inch WUXGA.

Christie’s front access system design addresses space limitations with the ability to put the cubes up against a wall without compromising performance, image quality or reliability. Customers can gain valuable space in their control room design by placing cubes directly against a wall, while maintaining the narrowest screen gaps in the industry and utilizing a smart air flow design for superior system ventilation.

The front access system is designed to take advantage of the Christie Entero HB systems’ User and Web Interface to enable remote control release of the screen for front service access as well as remotely performing fine geometry alignment by the integrated 6-axis geometry alignment system. Screen and geometry control are provided via the remote control, computer or tablet. The screen is on a slide mechanism and opens up with reliable and consistent positioning, via remote activation of solenoids, providing full access to the internal electronics from the front of the cube array system, allowing for exceptionally quick servicing and minimal downtime during maintenance operations.

“With space at a premium at many installation sites, front access cubes make it possible to install them right up against a wall or a structure,” said Jim Gavloski, director, Product Management, Control Room and Video Wall Display Solutions. “It’s a significant design element that will greatly expand the installation flexibility and ease of maintenance within our entire Christie Entero HB line.”

Christie’s front access system with motorized six-axis adjuster provides precise alterations for perfect image quality. To access system internals, the installer simply engages the intuitive user interface on the chosen device -PC, tablet or even smart phone, and the system pops the screen away from the cube body, allowing the installer to easily move the screen out of the way for full front access. The internal electronics module has been adjusted to make the LED display viewable from the front. Since no space is required behind the display wall cube, it makes them ideal for control room environments where space is restricted.

The new and improved Christie Entero HB video wall projection solution is based on the company’s proven LED platform – introduced first by Christie – which today is found in thousands of installations worldwide. Launched in November 2012, the Christie Entero HB helped to strengthen the company’s dominance in the control room arena, with display cube solutions that are “bigger and better” and set new standards in power efficiency, visual performance and image brightness, with up to 1,350 lumens capability. They feature proprietary third generation ArraySync™ automatic color and brightness management technology that monitors and adjusts color and brightness levels across the video wall in real time for perfectly uniform display wall visuals for the lifetime of the installation. Designed for 24/7 environments, Entero HB products offer the best price, performance and efficiency on the market with a superior and intuitive modular design, easy upgradability, and flexible operation for the demands of power and utilities, government, security and surveillance, and public and emergency services.

“With more than 30 years of industry expertise, Christie is ready to provide its customers with the perfect control room solution, and now, with the new front access system, the fastest way to access the interior electronics of our popular Christie Entero line of display cubes,” said Gavloski.

Control Room Solutions for Mission-Critical Monitoring
Today’s control rooms go beyond traditional displaying and monitoring, and Christie’s collaborative visual solutions are removing boundaries and enabling expansive collaboration for the world’s most mission-critical operations. By integrating stunning zero-maintenance displays with the power of the network, Christie is completely redefining the control room space and setting the stage for an increasingly distributed control room environment. Across every sector in business, commerce and government, Christie is raising the bar to exceed today’s control room operational requirements.

Christie Lights Up TCL Chinese Theatres as Official 4K Digital Projection Partner, with Christie Duo Anchoring State-of-the-Art 932-Seat Auditorium

Christie®, a world leader in advanced cinema technologies and visual displays, announced that it is the official 4K digital projection partner of TCL Chinese Theatres for the renovated TCL Chinese Theatres in Hollywood, with the acclaimed 4K Christie® Duo™ two-projector system anchoring that theater’s 932-seat auditorium and lighting up its massive screen.

Christie digital cinema projectors have also been installed exclusively at the adjacent TCL Chinese 6 Theatres, making the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame a “walk with Christie.” TCL Chinese Theatres reopened to the public on September 15, following extensive renovations, with the world premiere of the remastered “The Wizard of Oz: An IMAX 3D Experience.”

The installation of the 4K Christie Duo solution at TCL Chinese Theatres is among the highlights of the extensive, multi-million dollar renovation that have helped the famous landmark make the move to digital. The reopened theater features the brightest 2D and 3D 4K-resolution images in the industry, with the auditorium playing host to a wide range of high-profile events, from world premieres and gala performances, to some of the entertainment industry’s most glamorous celebrations and awards shows.

“The TCL Chinese Theatres is an iconic institution that has played a significant role in the legends and traditions of the entertainment history worldwide,” noted Alwyn Hight Kushner, president and chief operating officer for TCL Chinese Theatres. “The TCL Chinese Theatres’ multi-million renovation efforts included a respectful acknowledgement of the theater’s history, while bringing it into the digital age, thanks to our digital cinema partners, which include Christie. We are also pleased that Christie projection systems are lighting up our TCL Chinese 6 Theatres’ screens nearby. For us, Christie was the clear solution for our non-IMAX 2D and 3D showings.”

Craig Sholder, vice president of Entertainment Solutions at Christie, noted that “The TCL Chinese Theatres is part of American history, as is Christie, with our record of more than 80 years service to the cinema exhibition industry. As the official 4K digital projection partner, Christie is proud to ensure that all the content shown at the TCL Chinese Theatres is always thrilling, magical and memorable – the way movies are meant to be.”

The Christie Duo two-projection system, selected and installed through Christie integration partner Southern California Cinetech Services, offers twice the brightness of conventional systems for enhanced 3D, 4K resolution and High Frame Rate (HFR) screenings, enabling TCL Chinese Theatres to deliver an enhanced movie-viewing experience. It features an innovative design that perfectly aligns every pixel on the giant screen for optimal 2D and 3D screenings.

Jim Dukes, Christie senior product manager, noted that the massive screen at TCL Chinese Theatres is an excellent canvas for demonstrating the enormous power and brightness of the total solution that Christie Duo and two Christie Solaria® CP4230 projectors deliver.

“Large screens such as the one at the TCL Chinese Theatres present a challenge to most dual projection systems when it comes to the convergence of the image, which must be perfectly aligned to ensure the sharpest results possible. The Christie Duo’s configuration options solve that challenge by making image convergence quick, easy and consistent,” said Dukes. “Since its introduction, the Christie Duo has been highly acclaimed for addressing the biggest issue faced by exhibitors when screening 3D movies: that is, the delivery of ample brightness to the screen to make the experience memorable.”

Dukes also observed that the dominance of the Christie brand in theaters is also reflected in the exclusive use of Christie digital projection systems in the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres nearby.

“Christie digital projectors are used by leading exhibitors around the globe and are found in more digital cinema installations than any other brand,” he said.
