Draper, Inc.

Optically Seamless TecVision Draper’s Optically Seamless technology now allows Draper to make TecVision viewing surfaces up to 23 feet high x 69 feet wide. Most quality screen manufacturers utilise radio frequency (RF) heat sealing to create seams in flexible, unsupported vinyl surfaces. Two pieces of screen fabric are placed between two dies (electrodes). The RF produces heat by exciting the molecules to the point that they melt and create the seam. The generic term for this method is called “tear seam.” The strength of the seal is determined by three factors: sealing current, sealing time, and pressure. With Optically Seamless TecVision, Draper fuses a base substrate which results in a much flatter base material with a stronger weld (100% stronger than traditional seams). With the ideal substrate perfected, Draper uses TecVision formulation process to create a perfect and optically seamless viewing surface. All of Draper’s TecVision screen formulations are available in Optically Seamless larger sizes. While several things set Optically Seamless

ESP/SurgeX

Envision ESP/SurgeX Envision is a unique combination of troubleshooting and real-time diagnostic technology that enables integrators and homeowners to monitor, analyse, and address power conditions that can disrupt, damage, or shut down sensitive and expensive equipment. Envision combines an onboard power line tester, time-stamped reports and built-in oscilloscope into one powerful package to provide integrators with insight into potentially damaging power issues. Envision was engineered with state-of-the-art electrical intelligence, diagnostic software, and realtime scope meter technology giving integrators the ability to identify power-related problems quickly and easily and help eliminate unnecessary project site visits and repairs. The ESP/SurgeX Envision is a practical and powerful solution that can be deployed in both proactive and reactive scenarios. When used during pre-installation as an “electricity health meter� Envision can be used to identify and fix preexisting power issues before any sensitive equipment is installed. This is beneficial because from there, a clean bill of electrical health has the benefit of prolonging equipment lifespans, avoiding untimely replacement or repairs, saving the homeowner money over time. Users opting for 24/7 recording of all power conditions, the ESP/ SurgeX Remote Portal can be used in conjunction with Envision so issues can be reviewed and fixed remotely without a site visit from the integrator,

Arthur Holm Dynamic3reverse Dyanmic3Reverse is an outstanding and unique solution that helps to increase meetings’ efficacy and collaboration while combining technology, design and smooth movements, which make the screen turn and disappear within the desk when not needed. The monitor is built in a solid aluminium block with a black edged glass. It is robust, compact and very elegant; exceptionally silent and very easy to install. Dynamic3Reverse is a unique electrically foldable and rotatable 18,5� touchscreen monitor with horizontal and vertical working positions. This innovative motorised monitor can be used flush on the table with the screen facing up and it can be raised to any position up to 80 degrees of inclination. The desired tilt position can be memorised and easily recalled. Its mechanical system is extremely robust and ideal to be used for touch applications. When there is no need to use the monitor, it will rotate and fold down with the screen facing down, for a perfect screen protection and integration inside the desk. The screen is then protected and the table can be used for other purposes. The back of the monitor

The monitor is only visible when needed and it is safely stored in the armrest when not needed. This elegant aluminium screen has a semiautomatic vertical extraction movement with manual rotation towards the user, followed by a motorised tilt adjustment. The monitor housing is made of mechanised aluminium with anodised finish. Its mechanism is robust and silent and the whole solution is integrated in a compact block, being very easy to install. It has two DVI inputs, HDCP compliant and it is remotely controllable and diagnosable through RS-422. arthurholm.com

Sennheiser

TeamConnect Ceiling TeamConnect Ceiling provides the perfect solution for meeting spaces where for either aesthetic or practical purposes, cables, holes for installation, or table microphones are not desirable, offering very high quality audio with utterly unobtrusive design. A single microphone can cover up to approximately 16 participants, making it ideal for medium or large meeting rooms. The use of a single, dynamic ceiling microphone simplifies installation, configuration and everyday use, while the cable-free, tethered design ensures that the system is protected from wear and tear. The fixed microphone can be ceiling mounted either onto or, near invisibly, flush with the ceiling itself. TeamConnect Ceiling is designed to fit within the space of a standard 600sqmm (2ft) ceiling panel, making it easier to install discretely. Intuitive coloured LED-lights to indicate when the system is muted or in operation complete the overall subtle impression. Sennheiser’s new ceiling microphone frees users from the limitations of table-mounted mics, offering greater flexibility, while ensuring great sound quality through innovative beamforming technology that automatically focuses on whichever person in the room is speaking. No matter how dynamic the speaker, TeamConnect Ceiling offers excellent speech clarity, so meeting participants can feel free to sit, stand or move around. TeamConnect Ceiling is a variant of Sennheiser’s TeamConnect system, an easy to use, all in one, fixed-installation conferencing system that is also available with both on-and in-table microphones.

N2

The new 2.4mm pixel pitch Absen N2 – part of the N Series of LED panels, which also comprises the 4mm pitch N4 – has been designed with highend indoor fixed applications in mind (including corporate, retail, broadcast and advertising). Housed in a rectangular shaped high-grade aluminium extrusion panel (576 x 288mm), and with a thickness of just 57mm, this slim flat panel LED display has a sleek looking outer chassis ideal for retail and broadcast installations where space is both scarce and expensive. Each panel weighs in at just 5kg (30kg/sqm), ensuring effortless installation and maintenance. This fully front and rear serviceable product means all the main elements can be accessed easily and quickly: module, receiving card, power supply and cables. It can be fitted on sub-frames for even faster installation (4x1 and 2x3). The N2 UHD resolution is ideal for the retail and broadcast market, where pin sharp image projection is a prerequisite for any application. Boasting a brightness of 1,000 nits and a refresh rate of 1920Hz, the N2 also benefits from Absen’s third-generation pixel-by-pixel calibration

It now also includes AptoVision’s new Plethora engine, a fully in-line engine for high fidelity processing of uncompressed AV signals. These processing functions include broadcast quality scaling, pixel-perfect light-compression, colour space conversion, frame rate conversion, audio embedding/de-embedding, audio down-mixing and audio re-sampling. The BlueRiver NT+ now also supports an unprecedented range of 250m on Cat-X, 100m longer than incumbent technologies. With the integrated Plethora engine, the BlueRiver NT+ becomes the world’s first and only single-chip solution for end-to-end signal distribution and processing.

Cleerline Technology Group

SSF Fibre Optic Connectors Cleerline’s SSF field installable LC & SC type connectors completely eliminate the need to hand polish, epoxy, or crimp in the field. The innovative design of the SSF LC & SC connectors offers the easiest installation on 900um, 2.0mm, and 3.0mm jacketed cables. The superior strain relief results in a stronger finished cable. The use of fibre optic infrastructure is experiencing rapid growth in both commercial and residential installations. The most common connector types are LC & SC and the most common cable size being installed by today’s integrators is 3.0mm jacketed fibre optic cable. Prior to the SSF connectors, terminating an LC connector on a 3.0mm jacketed fibre optic cable presented few options to the installer, requiring proprietary tooling and/or tedious processes with inferior strain relief for the finished cable. The new connectors require no specialised tooling, ensuring precise fibre alignment, and producing low loss terminations for all Multimode or Single mode applications. SSF connectors can be installed on standard fibre optic cable types. When used in combination with Cleerline’s award winning SSF fibre optic cable they allow integrators to install and terminate fibre optic cable in the same time or less as Category cable, typically in a minute or less! www.cleerlinefiber.com

Draper

Optically Seamless TecVision Draper’s Optically Seamless technology now allows Draper to make TecVision viewing surfaces up to 23ft high x 69ft wide. Most quality screen manufacturers utilise radio frequency (RF) heat sealing to create seams in flexible, unsupported vinyl surfaces. Two pieces of screen fabric are placed between two dies (electrodes). The RF produces heat by exciting the molecules to the point that they melt and create the seam. The generic term for this method is called ‘tear seam’. The strength of the seal is determined by three factors: sealing current, sealing time, and pressure. With Draper’s Optically Seamless TecVision, we fuse a base substrate, which results in a much flatter base material with a stronger weld (100% stronger than traditional seams). With the ideal substrate perfected we use our TecVision formulation process to create a perfect and optically seamless viewing surface. All of Draper’s TecVision screen formulations are available in Optically Seamless larger sizes. While several things set Optically Seamless TecVision sizes apart from other products, there are

Sennheiser

TeamConnect Ceiling TeamConnect Ceiling provides the perfect solution for meeting spaces where for either aesthetic or practical purposes, cables, holes for installation, or table microphones are not desirable, offering very high quality audio with utterly unobtrusive design. A single microphone can cover up to approximately 16 participants, making it ideal for medium or large meeting rooms. The use of a single, dynamic ceiling microphone simplifies installation, configuration and everyday use, while the cable-free, tethered design ensures that the system is protected from wear and tear. The fixed microphone can be ceiling mounted either onto or, near invisibly, flush with the ceiling itself. TeamConnect Ceiling is designed to fit within the space of a standard 600mm2 (2 ft.) ceiling panel, making it easier to install discretely. Intuitive coloured LED-lights to indicate when the system is muted or in operation complete the overall subtle impression. Sennheiser’s new ceiling microphone frees users from the limitations of table-mounted mics, offering greater flexibility, while ensuring great sound quality through innovative beamforming technology that automatically focuses on whichever person in the room is speaking. No matter how dynamic the speaker, TeamConnect Ceiling offers excellent speech clarity, so meeting participants can feel free to sit, stand or move around. TeamConnect Ceiling is a variant of Sennheiser’s TeamConnect system, an easy to use, all in one, fixed-installation conferencing system that is also available with both on-and in-table microphones.

Arthur Holm DynamicX2Share ARTHUR HOLM launches the first retractable monitor share system, which makes the meeting table stand alone without needing any external device. We are presenting a solution where everyone can walk into a conference room and start sharing and collaborating instantly from each seat, without meeting preparation or assistance needed. DynamicX2Share is a state-of-the-art, reliable, retractable, individually addressable and remotely diagnosable monitor that also integrates a Full HD video distribution system. By using DynamicX2Share, the monitors just need to be connected through an HDMI cable in a closed daisy-chain loop, so that any user can send an HDMI signal to all other participants, and to other large displays or projectors which might be in the meeting room, or display their own local sources in the monitor without interfering with the shared signal in other monitors. Signals for controlling the monitors are embedded into the HDMI signal, so there is no need to have additional control cabling.

DM-TX-4K-302-C Piracy is said to cost the entertainment industry billions per year and to counteract this problem, the industry has introduced a content protection method called HDCP – a hardware encryption specification to prevent pirates from copying media and disseminating it online. With the increasing adoption of 4K content coming from both the corporate, domestic and education markets, the industry has responded and released HDCP2.2 – the latest version geared towards 4K copyright protection. However currently installed systems will not transmit HDCP2.2 protected content. The solution isn’t merely a firmware update; new hardware is required. For integrators this is a huge problem as there could be potential disruptions to their

E 10:4 and E 5:4 Lab.gruppen’s compact and ultra-efficient E Series of power amplifiers offers traditional Lab.gruppen performance to a market highly concerned with spiralling global energy prices and environmental pressures. The two new additions to the highly successful E Series, the E 10:4 and the E 5:4, draw on over three decades of honed design and manufacturing expertise to deliver a unique combination of performance, rock-solid reliability and energy efficiency. With the introduction of these four-channel models, now the E Series can offer eight channels configurable as any of 21 different power output and channel combinations, in the same rack space as one 2U C Series unit. This includes oneto-one alternatives for the C 20:8X (with two E 10:4 in a 2U space) and the C 10:8 (with two E 5:4 units). For installers, this means that existing amplifiers can be replaced with an energy efficient alternative without the need to expand and adjust rack space. Furthermore, in terms

PT-RZ31K Panasonic used ISE 2016 to launch the 28,000 lumens PT-RZ31K, the company’s first 3-Chip DLP SOLID SHINE laser phosphor projector series, especially designed for large venue applications. The projectors are available from autumn 2016 in both WUXGA and SXGA+, each outputting 28,000 centre lumens, and offer continuous maintenancefree operation, low total cost of ownership, small cabinet and stunning picture quality. A new liquid cooling system also contributes to reliability and quiet operation. The range is compatible with existing Panasonic lenses for 3-Chip DLP projectors, allowing operators to share lenses between projectors in their inventories.

LD SYSTEMS CURV 500 The first truly portable array system CURV 500 combines mobility, sound perfection and user-friendliness in a unique way. The mid/high speaker unit can be equipped with up to four modular, curved arranged array satellites. The result is an extremely clear, three-dimensional sound. The system can also be configured for a wide variety of applications: from solo party appearances at a party to a sound suited to smaller halls, for mobile and fixed applications. Plug and Play: with the SMARTLINK adapter up to four satellites can be plugged into each other effortlessly via a click mechanism. An individual 12 x 12 cm array satellite with high quality aluminum casing is capable of achieving optimum results. This is guaranteed by the WaveAhead technology specially developed by LD Systems. The subwoofer serves as a control unit for the entire system and is a classic subwoofer and a digital mixer at the same time. Instruments, microphones, and laptops can be connected to this 4-channel mixer. The integrated Bluetooth technology makes it easy to transfer data wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet. www.adamhall.com

AIM LCR FIVE Series Adding to its high-performance speaker line, SpeakerCraft introduced its all-new AIM LCR Series-In-Wall Speakers. Both the AIM LCR5 FIVE and AIM LCR3 FIVE create a spectacular soundstage for music or film with the ability to reproduce every nuance of a performance. SpeakerCraft developed these two new models with top performance in mind, adding Kevlar woofers and an aluminium-magnesium tweeter to AIM’s patented pivoting baffle to create a more realistic and enveloping sound stage that focuses the sound directly into the listening area. Superior response across the frequency spectrum, greater clarity and richer, tighter bass define the AIM LCR FIVE Series, making it the perfect design for use with flat panel video monitors. The AIM LCR5 Five is a 2-way, in-wall LCR (left, centre, right) speaker with dual 5¼in Kevlar woofers and 1in tweeter mounted on a pivoting speaker baffle. The speaker offers two 5¼in woofers phase plugs for easy use and an independently pivoting 1in aluminiummagnesium dome tweeter. The AIM LCR5 FIVE features bass and treble EQ switches and delivers a 48Hz–20kHz frequency response, with power handling of 100 Watts and adjustable impedance of 8/6 Ohm. Each speaker offers a sensitivity rate of 91dB 1W/1m. The AIM LCR3 Five also offers a 2-way, in-wall LCR (left, centre, right) speaker but with compact dual 3in Kevlar woofers and a ¾in aluminiummagnesium tweeter mounted on the pivoting speaker baffle.
