As well as the range of 3D projectors and screens we saw break through during 2010, there is certainly now a move towards interactive technologies. Hitachi and Sanyo were two vendors to showcase their interactive projector offerings at ISE in February. Last year, 2,800 Interactive Projectors were sold in the market and we can expect that to rise significantly in 2011. Interactive projection certainly makes presentations more interesting and exciting, and will surely be a big hit in the education sector as teachers look to make their lessons more engaging. Touch Technology also featured prominently at the shows, Samsung are just one of the vendors offering a full range of networkable touch screens – all linking back to the rise in popularity of interactive technologies. As always you can count on us to deliver these new solutions and support your business with our full range of Partner Services We hope 2010 was a success for you in spite of all the challenges we faced, and we look forward to a brighter 2011 together.

show me what’s NEW Projectors for any purpose NEC have launched there new multi purpose M Series projectors, and the U Series range of Ultra‑short throw units. See page 8

M-Series The M-Series boasts an impressive range of standard, wide and short throw models and brightness levels suitable for a wide range of classroom environments. All M-Series projectors incorporate new NEC innovations such as 75% AV Mute and longer lamp life support as well as advanced connectivity and functionality. The range also features an impressive Throw Ratio of 1.3-2.2:1.

n o i t c e j o r in p

The Shorter the better

Hitachi has released its new Ultimate Short-throw projector range, the CP-A300NM, CP-AW250NM, ED-A220NM and iPJ-AW250NM. The unique free-shaped lens and mirror results in a throw distance ratio of less than 0.35:1, which means an 80 inch (2m) image can be achieved from only 50cm away from mirror to screen.

Interactive projection on any surface Sanyo’s new interactive PLC‑WL2503 short throw projector. With the use of an IR pointer and pen, the interactive technology enables writing and operation with the image projected on any surface, including screens, standard whiteboard surfaces and walls. The short throw lens creates an 80" diagonal image at 86cm.

U-Series The U-Series design concept means convenient space saving and elimination of glare and shadow, whilst still offering brightness as high as 3100 ANSI Lumens and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. The range also incorporates DLP Link technology, making them ideal for longer projection periods with the BrilliantColor system, DLP Link is 3D ready. With improved picture quality, meaning images are uncompromised even at such a short throw distance with less than 0.5% distortion from corner to corner, the projectors are ideal for small rooms with limited space. Launched at ISE in February, the iPJ-AW250NM is Hitachi’s innovative Interactive Ultimate Short-throw projector, integrating the Hitachi Starboard software and an interactive pen to deliver a complete interactive experience on any flat surface. With a rich feature set that meets the specific interactive needs of both corporate and education users, the compact iPJ-AW250NM, like the other models in the Ultimate range, is easy to install, easy on the environment and designed to deliver outstanding performance in any setting. See page 6

Other new Sanyo models include the high contrast ratio PLC-XK2200, PLC-WK2500 and PLC-XK3010 units. As well as the PLC-HF10000 and PLC‑HF15000 models. See page 9


show me what’s NEW LG Supersign LG has expanded its range of Digital Signage players with the introduction of the NC2000 slot in PC module. Compatible with the new range of LG Commercial LFD that has the expansion slot (namely M3204C/M4214C & M4716C). The NC2000 has all the software functionality of the existing NC1000 media player, to enable professional looking templates to be created and distributed across your network in minutes. The SuperSign software has also been refreshed, adding more functionality such as support for MS Windows 7 servers, Zone alignment, increased Drag and Drop features and a new schedule export function.

Samsung update Network LFD’s Building on the success of the "N" series of Digital Signage network displays Samsung have further enhanced the range to incorporate a new Slot in Module (SIM) option.

See page 17

Available on the MX-3 (not 32") and DX-3 series the new SIM offers a simple upgrade to a standard -3 display to enable customers to utilize the full power of the MagicInfo DS software. With a 40Gb hard drive and a 2.7 Dual Core Processor the unit is also compatible with a range of alternate software platforms (such as signagelive). 2011 will also see the award winning range of Commercial LED displays expanded to now offer long life 24/7 panels in ultra-thin LED format. See page 16

y a l p s i d in signagelive in 2011 The latest release of signagelive for 2011 offers an array of great new features, all seamlessly updated automatically to your network.

The new Layout designer brings the power of Photoshop to designing multi-zone layouts, including a free library of master backgrounds to make designing DS layouts simple and easy. The Cross Browser function means signagelive can now be managed using any Internet browser on any device, including Mac, Windows and Android tablet. Signagelive is also now available in 42 languages and will intelligently select the language the user has their PC or Mac configured to use, catering for a truly global customer base. Signagelive now also offers the chance to create stunning super-HD display arrays using the new synchronised player feature. In addition to signagelive players for Windows, Mac, Linux and SMIL devices, you can now use an Android device as a signagelive player making it a truly flexible solution. See page 17

Q2 2011 sees LG introduce its new range of LCD, LED and Plasma TV’s, with features such as Freeview HD (T2) on many models, and an increased choice of edge lit LED models. Perhaps pick of the bunch is the stunning Full LED Nano units (LW770T & LW990T), featuring Dynamic 3D, Trumotion 400Hz refresh and local spot dimming for a superior image, all in an incredibly thin unit. Realising that Active 3D can often be impractical for large numbers of people LG has also expanded its range of Passive 3D displays, requiring cinema style 3D glasses that do not require charging, and are relatively inexpensive.

LifeSize has pioneered product development to make communication at a distance as natural and effective as being in the same room – for anyone, anywhere. The new LifeSize® Video Center, the most powerful one-button, HD streaming, recording and auto-publishing solution on the market today.

Never miss a meeting

Combining LifeSize Video Center with any LifeSize® Passport™, LifeSize® 220™ series endpoint, or LGExecutive powered by LifeSize®, users can press one button to broadcast, record and auto-publish meetings, discussions and presentations to anyone with access to the internet. Global meetings, HR presentations, sales training – in fact any important content can be available wherever and whenever an audience is ready and able to listen. See pages 28, 29 and 30.

Extend your reach The innovative new LifeSize® Bridge™ redefines HD video conferencing for large multiparty calling. LifeSize Bridge offers a low-risk, cost-effective platform to modularly extend HD video conferencing to an entire organization.

LifeSize takes the strain out of video streaming By Lindsey Reynolds Using video to communicate with customers, shareholders, students, even suppliers is on the increase in a YouTube world, where the Internet puts 24/7 access to video in the hands of anyone with a connected computer or phone. While camera phones and the Web have democratized video, the demands of professional applications like corporate communications or distance learning rise by an order of magnitude. High-quality video must be captured, re-formatted for the web, organised and uploaded – all time-consuming, skilled and expensive processes. Systems to automate these processes exist, but their high price tags and accompanying complexity keep them out of the reach of most business and public sector organisations.

New opportunities LifeSize Video Center brings automated streaming, storage and playback into the reach of a new set of users in terms of price and versatility, opening the door to diverse applications in the public and private sectors. LifeSize Video Center is a single, rack-mount unit that sits with the rest of the network infrastructure and connects over that network to LifeSize 220 series endpoints, which it uses to capture video at the point of use and during a videoconferencing session. As it receives video, LifeSize Video Center transcodes it to a format suitable for the web and streams it live or files it for future playback, on

demand, from any Web-enabled device, from a laptop to an iPhone. A single LifeSize Video Center is capable of 20 concurrent recordings in HD, 1,000 simultaneous live streams and up to 450 simultaneous on-demand streams. Capacity increases exponentially with lower resolutions. All this happens automatically and instantly as defined by the network administrator, from the video resolution of the video to the categories under which captured video is stored or ‘published’ and permissions levels for users.

Lindsey Reynolds is a specialist writer and commentator on AV, interactive and collaborative technology and runs her own strategic marketing consultancy Attitude Communications.

One-button control The user, who might be a university lecturer or a business executive giving a presentation or holding a videoconference, is able to initiate the process with a single click. LifeSize Video Center is fully scalable to enable a user to begin with a single LifeSize 220 endpoint, adding further endpoints as required. LifeSize Passport and LGExecutive, powered by LifeSize, are supported for out-of-call recording. While £24,999.00 is a significant investment for an organisation, it is also significantly lower in price and complexity than comparable systems. Together with the ability to draw on Medium’s project design, install and commissioning services, LifeSize Video Center enables video streaming to be delivered to a far wider base of customers and by a diverse range of resellers. LifeSize Video Center sits on the network to automate the streaming of video, audio and data captured using a LifeSize 220 endpoint.

Projector Lamps

If you want to continue to get the very best from your projectors, it makes sense to buy the very best replacement lamps – the branded lamps offered by each projector’s manufacturer. And the best place to get these is your AV dealer. Here, you’ll be sure of getting genuine replacement lamps that can be relied upon to deliver outstanding image quality over thousands of hours. Lamps that won’t compromise your projectors, your presentations, or your personal safety. What’s more, we will usually sell complete lamp modules – not just lamps. There’s a big difference. Requiring no technical knowledge to install, lamp modules are designed for easy replacement. Fitting a basic lamp, on the other hand, can be tricky for the inexperienced, and if you’re unlucky, could result in expensive damage to your projector.

Where do you go when your projector lamps need replacing? 12

Don’t compromise. For genuine lamp replacements and more – go to your AV dealer every time.

And what to do with your old lamps? Ask us about environmentally friendly disposal.

Screens for fixed installations For permanent installations, we offer both manually operated and motorised screens. Whether ceiling or wall‑mounted, these versatile, stylish and durable screens are easily installed and will enhance any presentation environment. Manually operated ‘pull-down’ screens are available in both standard and wide formats. In addition to a standard drop-down screen, our motorised range offers a twin motor drop-down screen enabling the entire screen to be lowered and then retracted by up to 5 metres – ideal for use with very high ceilings, or in theatre settings where permanent positioning could compromise stage lighting. Providing further flexibility, a floor-standing ‘rise-up’ screen offers the opportunity for concealed mounting within a display system – in front, for example, of a plasma or LCD screen, in a home cinema suite. All our motorised products feature industry-leading ‘Somfy’ motors – guaranteed for two years – enabling screens to be lowered or raised and then retracted, smoothly, precisely and conveniently, via a remote IR controller.

Screen fabric Electric and slow retraction screens use a matt white 1:1 gain multi-layered fabric with a flexible fibreglass backing which prevents V-waves forming and ensures the screen remains taut while in use. The exceptionally smooth projection surface delivers superior image quality with sharp, high contrast, colour-rich reflection, together with comprehensive projector compatibility. Manual screens use a durable single ply PVC

Fixed-frame wall screens Ideal for permanent, wall-mounted installations – in high-end home cinema and boardroom environments, for example – our sophisticated fixed frame screens are available for front and rear projection formats. Maximising image quality, the screen is pulled tight with industrial Velcro concealed behind the frame, ensuring a perfectly flat surface. In addition, the frame’s velvet finish ensures that no light is reflected onto the projected image.

12v Trigger pack With our new 12v trigger pack installed, your screen will lower automatically when you turn your projector on. With simple plug-in adaptors for the projector screen, it couldn’t be easier. Two models available, the STR12V, for use with projectors with inbuilt 12 volt trigger, and the STR with an additional box for projectors that do not have this facility.

Samsung Video Walls. Bringing BIG SCREEN impact to a wide range of corporate, educational and leisure venues With their super slim bezels, Samsung’s UX(n) series panels dramatically enhance and simplify the realisation of large format, high impact, video walls. Available in 40" and 46" panels, their modular design enables display configurations to be optimised to suit both screen content and the installation environment. In addition, the system’s simple interlocking rear fixings enable multiple, fully‑integrated displays to be assembled in a fraction of the time it takes to install a standard video wall. MagicInfo content management software is included with the network versions of these units. Supporting the easy scheduling of content and the remote delivery of large scale MPEG or image files, MagicInfo enables screens to be configured as independent units or as tiled elements within the video wall. The unique MID base units provide a stable and secure base for freestanding screens.

Think thin To complement the UX/N-2/3 screen range, Samsung has also enhanced its video wall solution with the UT/N Series of Ultra Thin 46" LCD displays. Facilitating virtually seamless video walls, the elegant UT Series features bezels of just 2.4mm wide at the screen’s bottom edge and right hand side, and 4.3mm on the top edge and left hand side. This gives a total gap of just 7.3mm screen-to-screen. For creating seamless video walls a networkable display option (SM460UTN) which uses MagicInfo Pro D.S. Software is also available. The Samsung MID46-2 Kit is simple to install – and for easy maintenance, the backs of the UT Series display can be removed for servicing without having to disassemble your video wall. Improved air ventilation supports 24/7 operation, and for greater visual impact and flexibility, video walls can be angled up to 40°.

“We found Medium's training for LifeSize to be very professional, comprehensive and above all much more informative than any other technical product training we have experienced. The trainer really took the time to ensure that all users fully understood the features relevant to them, and got us up in running quickly and easily. We have found using the equipment a breeze and put this down to the time Medium spent with us.” Kristian Wright, Director Inbay Ltd

Medium training services are designed with the end user in mind; the objective is to simplify the technology enabling your customer to fully understand the capabilities of the solution they will have complete confidence in their ability to use the Video Conferencing solution clearly appreciating the ease of use. Our Approach is experiential, providing hands on interactive experience where the training is tailored to the needs of the End User, whether the IT Director or the Receptionist both will learn at a speed that suits them and using language and detail relevant to their existing knowledge levels. Our training programmes are designed to help the users understand the solutions capabilities, enhancing their day to day role in the business and enabling them to fully utilize the solutions functionality. Refresher training is available to ensure knowledge levels are in place for all as the business grows and people change.

Extended Support When a unit has failed in a videoconferencing system or your customer has reported a dead screen on their digital signage network, you need more than a courier-delivered replacement to fix the problem. That’s why Medium provides a range of Extended Support Contracts, ensuring you can resolve customer problems, quickly and effectively, anywhere in the UK. We remove the defective unit wherever its location, install a replacement, reconnect it to the network and ensure it is up and running to the customer’s satisfaction. Extended Support Contracts present resellers and integrators with an excellent opportunity to earn incremental revenue by assuring customer peace of mind, which together help build and maintain good customer relationships, and gain a competitive edge.

We provide both half and full day training solutions dependant on the customers’ needs. Support materials are left at site in both hard or soft copy and full training feedback will be provided once the training has been completed.

For further information on all our Support and Partner Services please do not hesitate to contact your Medium Account Manager.

area. It can be used in any indoor environment where a traditional 16:9 screen will not fit – and, for example, to replace static backlit directional signs or red LED strip signs. Portrait mounting is also possible and with it’s in-built zoom function no specialist screen drivers are required to get up and running fast.

Flat Panel Displays Brackets

Our comprehensive and continuously expanding portfolio of high quality Flat Panel Display Brackets includes wall-mounted and free-standing options. Functional, reliable, stylish – and easily installed – they offer great value for money. No wonder they’re the No1 choice.

PF1/FL1 Flat Wall Mounts Amongst the most compatible and robust flat panel wall mounts currently available, the PF1 and FL1 are manufactured from high grade steel and feature a unique universal mounting ensuring a perfect fit and compatibility with most medium and large screens. Multiple fixing points on the back plate ensure a secure installation onto solid or stud walls while a twin locking mechanism provides safety and security for your display. Tilt versions (PT1/FT1) and extra-large versions (PF2/PT2) are also available.

APM1 The Raw APM1 is a robust, fully-automated, wall mount for 37"-52" flat screens – a remote control provides comprehensive tilt, swivel and reach adjustment. When the power is switched on the screen can be positioned using directional arrow keys on the remote control, or by choosing one of the programmable presets, to ensure you always have the perfect view. When not in use, the device’s inbuilt memory will return the screen to the ‘home’ position – flush against the wall. The front plates’ universal design ensures that screens can be easily mounted.

TRS1 A moveable trolley for flat screens featuring four unidirectional wheels with a locking function to secure the mount once positioned, the TRS1 is ideal for use in corporate or retail environments. A universal mounting system allows all screens in the specified size range to be fitted to the front plates, while a locking system keeps the screen secure but facilitates easy removal when required for storage and maintenance. Also available, the TRS2 features an integrated shelf for AV equipment, including laptops and DVD players.

Medium news

Online sales tools At Medium we take a collaborative approach to business growth and business partnership. With this in mind, we recently put together a selection of marketing tools to help our resellers grow their business. The reseller toolkit included a selection of e-shots and print ads designed for use in attracting and informing end users about a selection of products.

Samsung Service Accreditation

The toolkit included two Sanyo e-shots, one focusing on their 3D projector range and the other on the new PLC-WL2503 interactive projector. As well as this there were Samsung digital signage, and LifeSize video conferencing e-shots. And finally print ads relating to the Casio XJ-A range and LG SuperSign.

We’ve been reviewing the service proposition available within the channel and have recognised a ‘gap’ in terms of on-site service and re-commissioning of networkable products. So, as sales of our Samsung Networkable displays increase, we decided we should gain full service accreditation from Samsung. Medium’s service partner has now been appointed a fully authorised service provider, enabling us to offer on-site service including de-installation and re‑installation of replacement units and re-commissioning of displays onto the network, as well as providing extended service plans. For further information please contact the Medium sales team.

We plan to make the reseller toolkits an ongoing release, focusing on key products – and we hope you’ll find them useful and productive.

Case Studies At Medium, we’re committed to providing Case Studies – bringing together professional journalism, design and photography to create the ultimate marketing tool. Case Studies are one of our most successful marketing elements as they not only support future business enquiries, but also provide a great marketing resource for our resellers, the manufacturers and ourselves. If you have any Case Study opportunities please let us know as soon as you can. technology

The Samsung MagicInfo system from Medium UK was designed, installed and integrated by Medium UK’s Reseller Partner, offering complete support from initial planning of the solution, through to hand-over and training of all staff who would be managing the video wall.

The development features a large atrium space with glass above and to the side, forming the main walkway through the building. With such a huge public area available, the local Primary Care Trust, which manages the Village, wanted to find a way to maximise its potential benefits – and decided that a large audio-visual solution could be just what was required. The PCT’s Project Head explains further:

“There is an element of funding attached to all our new capital projects which is known as ‘public realm’. This is simply defined in terms of ‘enhancing the public environment’ and has traditionally taken the form of artwork and sculpture. In fact, some specialist and unique pieces have already been commissioned in one of our other capital projects. With the new Health Village, an idea emerged in respect of how we could adopt the latest technologies into public realm, and the extent to which these could be employed to present artwork, messaging and other forms of media communications to the community, as well as to showcase some of the skills and the work that goes on in this thriving area.”
