WINNER ALBIRAL DISPLAY SOLUTIONS/ARTHUR HOLM DYNAMICSPEAKER BY ARTHUR HOLM MEETING rooms are where ideas are born, a sanctuary of creativity and the place where important decisions are taken. If a spoken dialog or if the sound of a presentation is unintelligible, much of the communication is lost. In meeting and conference rooms, there is the need to spread the sound over the length of long tables. Furthermore, there is also the need that these tables are aesthetically pleasant and versatile. The next challenge is that boardroom tables often place people several meters apart, making it difficult to carry a conversation. All these challenges are solved with the new DynamicSpeaker. DynamicSpeaker is an ingenious, elegant and space optimizing solution. It comprises a motorized loudspeaker for desk integration: a compact, omnidirectional 360 degrees Class-D active speaker, two-way coaxial driver, with integrated DSP technology. The system is controlled via the AHnet and also via the AHDynamicAirConnect: a wireless App for control and setup. Benefits of DynamicSpeaker: •Helps improving meeting room acoustics with proximity sound •Helps improving speech intelligibility •Helps avoiding sound dispersion, creating an environment of clear communication by near-field listening •Helps providing the right balance of absorption, reflection and diffusion •Helps optimising the table space by

BOS 2019_V2.indd 3

disappearing inside the desk surface when not needed •Helps optimising the cabling and the installation time •Makes the table stand alone, eliminates the need of expensive speaker integration into walls and ceilings We believe DynamicSpeaker deserves to win a Future Best of Show award because it is a totally innovative

solution that cleverly combines design, performance and functionality. And with todays minimalistic architecture and overall acoustic challenges of a board room and other halls can be reduced to a minimum by bringing in the DynamicSpeaker. This is a solution that helps both improving the meeting room acoustics and the furniture design. arthurholm.com

INNEOS REAL4K™ OPTICAL EXTENDERS WITH IR CABLE INNEOS Real4K™ Optical Extenders provide the ultimate in performance over distance by delivering 4K/60 with HDR (18 Gbps) without compression up to 1000 meters. Other IP-based video technologies must use compression, which loses visual data permanently, to transmit an 18Gbps signal only 100 meters or less. Plus copper-based solutions are susceptible to sneaky EMI “gremlins” which optical technology is immune to. Inneos’ 2nd generation optical video product is very compact and has a number of new features such as support for Audio Return Channel (ARC) and IR control signals using an IR-USB power accessory. In addition, customers can connect their extenders using HDMI cables up to 2 meters in length on either side providing exceptional flexibility in residential and commercial design applications. Inneos’ Real4K Optical Extenders enable AV professionals to deliver the best uncompressed visual quality with unequaled deployment flexibility. For simplicity, installers can use preterminated lengths of fiber. If they want a more custom design, they can cut fiber to length and terminate it in the field using standard SC connectors and keystones. Installers can also mix and match different types of multimode fiber. For instance, plenum-rated fiber can be used for in-wall use, armored fiber for outdoor or rugged environments, or

BOS 2019_V2.indd 28

translucent fiber for when the installer has to hide the cabling in plain sight. The freedom to use any type of standard multimode fiber and the ability to use variable length HDMI cables creates an entirely new deployment paradigm for AV designers. AV designers like to prepare their customers for the future. Unlike

copper wire solutions, Inneos’ optical technology has room to grow into the future with 200Gbps of potential bandwidth. Installed fiber stays in the wall and upgrading becomes a simple matter of swapping out 4K extenders for 8K extenders. http://www.inneos.com/

Embedding unique innovative processing and also featuring JPEGXS compliancy, TICO-XS will drastically reshape the way we handle video, as it provides the solution for a multitude of problems faced by the ProAV market today: Managing more and better pixels New resolution formats like 4K and 8K are establishing themselves rapidly. With TICO XS, high resolution video, HDR, 444 can be carried over existing bandwidth, with lossless quality and microsecond latency (yes, microsecond ! It is less than one millisecond). (yes, lossless quality ! For fine text, graphics, computer, but also for videos) Saving cost & power Utilizing TICO XS opens the door for transporting high resolution and high quality video on Cat 5e networks. This leads to great cost savings for implementors as they will be able to keep existing cables and uses cost effective 1GbE or 2.5GbE switchers. The implementation is extremely low-power, making it perfect for POEs. Improving quality with no latency Being a line-based compression technology, TICO XS induces less than one microsecond of latency -

BOS 2019_V2.indd 46

imperceptible to the human eye. A quality that makes it incredibly helpful for latency-critical applications such as KVM extension and other interactive video communications. After undergoing rigorous testing by the ISO JPEG committee, the codec provides pixel-perfect quality at compression ratios from as low as 3bpp (8:1) for graphics, fine text, desktop content and down to 1,5bpp (~ 16:1) for natural content and video games. Simplifying connectivity Processing video data streams with TICO XS generates the crucial bandwidth savings needed to move more pixels

over wired (Cat 5e) or even wireless transmission (WiFi, WiGig, 5G) at the speed of light. TICO XS is the perfect contender for the Best of Show Awards at ISE 2019 as it will simplify and rapidly increase the adoption rate of UHD resolutions in the ProAV market. Thanks to TICO XS, all you will ever need is Cat 5e and it is all based on the new coming JPEG-XS standard!

WINNER BOSE PROFESSIONAL ARENAMATCH DELTAQ ARRAY LOUDSPEAKERS ARENAMATCH arrays incorporate DeltaQ technology, to bring improved sound quality, consistency, vocal clarity and flexibility to outdoor installations — sports stadiums, arenas, outdoor entertainment centers, and more. Featuring an IP55 weather rating, ArenaMatch DeltaQ modules make it easy to create durable and reliable outdoor loudspeaker arrays that bring consistent, intelligible sound to listeners. DeltaQ array technology allows directivity, or “Q,” to vary in each module to more precisely match coverage to audience area. With nine coverage patterns available, designers can choose from modules with 10-, 20- or 40-degree vertical coverage and easily swap between 60-, 80- or 100-degree horizontal waveguides — even in already-assembled arrays — to adjust horizontal coverage and create asymmetrical patterns where needed. By reducing the number of modules required, ArenaMatch loudspeakers can help improve sight lines, reduce array weight, and lower overall system costs compared to some conventional arrays. Most importantly, the coverage flexibility of ArenaMatch loudspeakers means more sound going where it is needed. ArenaMatch offers a turnkey solution for entire outdoor sound systems. Designers can employ 40-degree ArenaMatch array modules for pointsource applications and 10-, 20- and 40-degree modules for line arrays — all

BOS 2019_V2.indd 97

with the same transducers for consistent tonal balance. Combining ArenaMatch loudspeakers with ArenaMatch Utility loudspeakers, which blend seamlessly to deliver complementary and consistent zone-fill coverage, makes equalizing the system much easier. ArenaMatch loudspeakers also interface perfectly with Bose PowerMatch amplifiers, ControlSpace DSPs and ControlSpace Designer software (as well as Dante® connectivity), which simplifies setup and monitoring, saving users time with loudspeaker presets for EQ, limiter and crossover settings. For outdoor sports complexes,

ArenaMatch loudspeakers provide clean audio for the entire spectator area – delivering announcements and play-byplay calls clearly. 14-inch neodymium woofer and six Bose EMB2S titaniumdiaphragm neodymium compression drivers in each module deliver superior intelligibility.
