Mobile and interactivity are game-changers for digital signage BY GERORGE COLE Mobile technology and interactivity are set to transform the digital signage market; that was the message from speakers at the Digital Signage Summit Presents sessions, held at the ISE Commercial Solutions Theatre (Stand 8D-360), sponsored by KNX. “Interactivity is a game-changer,” said Frederik de Wachter, strategic marketing and co-founder at DOOHapps: “if a display is interactive, it has more value; you can target better and it’s measurable. If you can measure something, you can make it better.” When de Wachter was on a recent business trip to Munich,

he found that only three of the 44 digital signage screens he saw were interactive. “There’s a huge opportunity for us. Online advertising and mobile advertising are growing – there is a huge shift to mobile.” The key to making a successful interactive digital signage system is to grab the user’s attention; make it fun and engaging; encourage users to share the experience on social media; and track your users, added de Wachter. Digital signage content creators need to be innovative, said de Wachter, “Don’t be scared to try out new stuff, and cooperate with others – don’t try and do everything yourself.” Jody Smith, product manager at

BroadSign International, sees a natural link between Digital Out of Home (DOOH) systems like digital signage, and mobile technology. “DOOH is the call-to-action,” he said: “it encourages interaction and pulls users towards the mobile device.” However, he warned, “Make sure mobile is not an afterthought to your campaign.” Oliver Schwede, senior analyst, invidis consulting, said: “Digital signage is not about technology; it’s about communication. The key to success is to think about your customer and what you want to achieve. Digital signage is a dynamic communication medium, so your display needs to be dynamic and updated regularly.”

Students told: bring your mobile phone to the classroom BY GERORGE COLE Remember the days when students were told to put away their mobile phones and listen to the teacher? Now they are more likely to be encouraged to use their personal mobile device in a classroom or lecture theatre for teaching and learning. The rise of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) was just one of the hot topics discussed at InfoComm for Higher Education: What’s Working Now, a conference sponsored by AV Magazine.

with intruders messing up their systems,” he said, “universities need to ask: ‘what are we trying to protect; who are we trying to protect ourselves from, and how much are we willing to spend?’” Protection includes using passwords, firewalls and encryption, and having conversations with integrators and system designers about security, added Zielie. BYOD and the collaborative learning classroom was the theme of the talk by Mike Shaw, Kramer Electronics. Today’s students are

used to a 24/7 learning culture, and learning through sharing and collaboration, added Shaw, “The collaborative classroom is about student-focused group learning. It means that lecturers become more like conductors or directors of learning.” Network managers are often wary about BYOD, said Shaw, “They talk about the need to protect their network, but it’s not their network; it belongs to all of us, and it’s their job to make it happen.” InfoComm is hosting another conference, InfoComm for AV Executives: What’s Working Now, on Friday 12 February 09.30-13.00 Room D204.

Attendance at ISE 2016 is set to break records again; just before the show opened, the number of pre-registered attendees was within 200 of last year’s total figure

Win a tour of the Tesla factory TESLA Visitors to Hall 8 have been pleasantly surprised to see a slightly unusual addition to the ISE 2016 exhibitor line-up. Car manufacturer Tesla is making its debut as an exhibitor at ISE and is giving away a tour of its brand new factory in Tilburg, Netherlands on each day of the show. This isn’t the first time the company has been involved in ISE, however. Last year, Tesla teamed up with Panasonic and The Projection Studio to create 3D projection mapping onto a Tesla Model S. This combination of engineering, design and technology proved to be extremely popular with attendees. The mission of Tesla Motors is to accelerate the transition to sustainable transport with an offering of increasingly affordable cars. California-based Tesla designs and manufactures

electric cars and renewable energy storage solutions. The company recently made headlines after co-founder and CEO, Elon Musk, said that Tesla will have fully self-driving cars in just two years. Musk reportedly said: “I think we have all the pieces, and it’s just about refining those pieces, putting them in place, and making sure they work across a huge number of environments and then we’re done.” Attendees at ISE 2016 can enter a prize draw to win a tour of the state-of-the art Tesla factory in Tilburg, simply by visiting the company at stand 8-N315 and having their badge scanned. The lucky winner each day will be notified by email. Each winner will receive an invitation for them and one guest for a behind the scenes tour of the brand new facility in the south of the Netherlands.

Stand: 8-N315

ISE 2016 opened yesterday morning with the traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony outside the entrance to Hall 2. Wielding the scissors (L-R) were: Wolfgang Lenz, board director, ISE; Wendy Griffiths, executive director, CEDIA EMEA; David Labuskes, executive director and

CEO, InfoComm International; Kris Hogg, chair, CEDIA EMEA; Vincent Bruno, CEO, CEDIA; Hans Bakker, CEO, RAI Amsterdam; Terry Friesenborg, chief global officer, InfoComm International; Dennis Erskine, chairman, CEDIA executive committee.

Pakedge is new acquisition CONTROL4 Pakedge Device & Software, a provider of advanced networking products and cloud network-management services for the connected home and business market, is at ISE as part of Control4, which announced its acquisition of the company last week. Control4 acquired Pakedge for approximately $32.7 million in cash on 29 January. Pakedge is known in the industry for its networking and backbone capabilities for the connected building, so brings complementary services to Control4’s building automation products. Paul Williams, VP solutions at Control4, commented on the deal: “A very important part of smart home technology is a very stable network. Pakedge brings scalable network solutions second to none to Control4, and it is widely accepted by our dealer base. From a strategic perspective this acquisition made perfect sense; it’s very beneficial to our dealers, giving

them a known, go-to solution to put in. This gives us synergy to be able to create packages for our dealers to create offerings for their customers, as well as simplifying the installation process for them, and ensuring what they’re getting is very reliable.” Meanwhile, Nickolas Phillips, VP sales at Pakedge, stated: “Now, my mind is spinning! No one else in the market has the synergy that we do; the capability of control and automation, security and everything else Control4 does, plus Pakedge’s networking and backbone technology.” Phillips added: “Being a tech company, we’re basically a bunch of engineers with a very small sales and marketing arm. The bigger global stage that Control4 has, plus its sales and marketing capability and integrating our products into Control4’s roadmap, is exciting. We are now having lots of conversations about that combined roadmap.” Pakedge had approximately $18.5 million in sales in 2015, delivered

Bring the love: Nickolas Phillips of Pakedge, Control4 CEO Martin Plaehn and Paul Williams, VP solutions at Control4 through its professional sales and installation channel of 1,700 independent dealers, 560 of which are also Control4 certified dealers. Control4 intends to fully support the Pakedge product line for all Pakedge dealers, regardless of whether they are also Control4 certified dealers.

VOX POP

Monday’s thought provoking Opening Panel Discussion, moderated by David Rowan, Wired UK magazine editor-inchief, explored the impact of ubiquitous sensorisation on AV and IT and suggested that the industry had barely touched on ways to work with and create with it. We spoke to some audience members immediately afterwards Across the world, AV and IT verticals are kept separate and their convergence has not been addressed, until now. It is like left hand and right hand, but to be successful the two must work in combination. We need this idea to penetrate every corner of the market from manufacturers to education.

Narendra Naidu MD, Rhino Engineers (Ahmedabad, India) The pairing of Google with a company like Harman or NEC on the same panel illustrates the convergence between consumer media and professional install. I was impressed.

Jaap Oostveen Technische Ondersteuning & Advies (Amsterdam)

It was inspiring, particularly David Rowan’s presentation, but the challenge for us all is to take all these ideas aimed at the consumer experience and apply them to the professional market.

Burak Devecel Technology solutions manager, AFKA Teknoloji (Istanbul, Turkey) I thought the idea of the internet of stupid things was a good one. We don’t want to be interrupted in the middle of a meeting by an alert from our fridge that the milk has gone off.

Odilon Hunt Operations director, AVA Systems (Ireland)

It was fascinating listening to David Rowan on the use of sensors in everything from robots to self-driving cars and imagining the potential this has for AV. For example, how will sensors integrate with the display screen? That’s the next step.

Linda Adams Director, Repeat Software (UK) David Rowan’s presentation was inspiring. The sensorisation of objects and buildings is our future. The world is changing so fast that no matter where we all stand we need to be two steps ahead. We have to drive change.

Solving real world problems MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC Video cubes with a 100,000 hour lifespan, security cameras that respond to sound, and a mobile videowall for field operations are just a few of the innovations Mitsubishi Electric has taken to ISE. The company has partnered with French company IRTS to create a mobile instant control room screen for rapid set-up for emergency situations, such as in areas afflicted by outbreaks of disease. “The criteria we were given is that the solution had to be capable of set up by not more than two people, without tools and in just 15 minutes,” explained Peter Van Dijk, senior business development manager, Export, Display Systems Group, Mitsubishi Electric. Demonstrated in prototype at ISE, the flypack arrangement of four LCD screens (or more) can be

locked together by clips and height adjusted by a motorised lift. The new 60in LED-lit DLP Display (product name VS-62WE120U) has a claimed lifespan of 100,000 hours in all modes marking “a significant improvement on previous Mitsubishi displays in this category and an even more dramatic advance on rival product,” said Van Dijk. The firm’s previous product would run up to 100,000 hours in advanced echo mode and 80,000 hours in other modes. The contrast ratio on the display has doubled to 3800:1 and power consumption is also reduced. European visitors can also get their first look at the P2 LM55, an ultra thin LCD screen with a 3.5mm bezel “ideal for emergency operations centres,” explained Van Dijk. “We believe that using conventional monitors for mission critical 24/7 operations will result in

image issues, no matter the brand. That’s why this is an ideal system where high resolution images need to be viewed across the entire display, such as surveillance, process or traffic monitoring.” The 55in displays deliver full HD resolution, and when combined in a 2x2 configuration, create a compact 4K (3840x2160 pixels) display with only a single mullion vertically and horizontally. “We offer our own control system but also work with a number of controller manufacturers – such as Datapath – to make the best possible solutions for the client,” he added. Mitsubishi is in the process of combining its security cameras division into its displays wing making it even easier for it to serve customers with a complete solution. For example, its network camera 7000 series can be connected to

Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers step-up to Silver line TRIAD SPEAKERS The InRoom Silver LR-H is a new loudspeaker that combines traditional front firing-drivers with an integrated Dolby Atmos-enabled module that directs sound towards the ceiling. It offers two front-firing 6.5in organic-fibre cone drivers with a 1in fabric dome neodymium tweeter. The Dolby Atmos component is comprised of an upward firing top array comprised of four proprietary 3in full-range neodymium drivers. Triad says the Dolby Atmos audio experience can be achieved without requiring the separate use of in-ceiling speakers, by placing one InRoom Silver LR-H in each of the left and right front and left and right rear surround positions, complementing the centre channel speaker and subwoofers. The speaker is available in a wide variety of colours and finishes, including custom paintmatched or veneered, to match the décor of the room. It measures 56.8cm x 22.2cm x 28.4cm.

Dolby Atmos is enabled by an upward firing top array comprised of four proprietary 3in drivers

David Nelson, director of product development, Triad Speakers, said, “As Dolby’s loudspeaker development partner for the last few years, we have had the opportunity to be involved in a significant step forward in home surround sound systems. For Dolby Atmos enabled speakers Triad uses four proprietary drive units in a 2x2 array, and the speaker systems are designed and manufactured

at our Portland facility. The array provides enhanced directivity and reduced side wall interaction over a traditional driver for better overhead surround effects.” The company notes that the InRoom Silver LR-H is larger in size and handles more power than the Triad’s Bronze model, making this step-up more suited for larger Dolby Atmos home cinemas.

Podcast Studio hits ISE UBICAST A cost effective solution to capture and share professional videos, Podcast Studio is being showcased here at ISE by UbiCast. Podcast Studio enables video to be used more by companies for training and for communicating, and also in

universities for teaching. With over eight years’ experience in the video capture market, UbiCast’s system, which was released in September 2015, records two video sources simultaneously, typically a camera and presenter material (such as slides from a computer or tablet) and publishes the video

to a website, intranet, YouTube channel, USB device or UbiCast MediaServer platform. It is particularly adapted to producing short videos. The videos are delivered in HD quality, fully branded and automatically edited for a dynamic viewing experience.

Visitors to the Mitsubishi Electric stand can learn about the new P2 LM55 ultra thin bezel display the 5000 series video recorder for recording or display of up to 32 feeds and integrated with a video management system. One function is a built-in mic on the NC-7020 CCTV camera, which will trigger full video recording in the event of loud noise. This clip is stored on the server and date stamped for later export while the main display can also be activated by the audio alert. “The solution can show up to 32 live streamed images at 30fps

whereas competitor products will drop the framerate or resolution to do the same,” said Dean Kemp, Mitsubish’s security consultant. “The next stage we are working on is to send each camera’s five streams direct to the videowall.” The company is also investigating the possibility of using LED for control room operations and is showing a work in progress example with 1.5mm pixel pitch on the stand.

Future trends: Millennials shaping the future of workplace collaboration

Millennials, Generation Y, The Digital Generation - call them whatever you wish, but ignore them at your peril In a recent report from PwC, it was revealed that by 2020 Millennials (adults aged between 18 and 34) will have overtaken all other generations to make up 50% of the global workforce. To capture the full potential of Millennials and keep them engaged, it’s vital for businesses to evolve how they meet workplace expectations of the digital generation. Raised in the digital age, Millennials anticipate instant connectivity, mobile interaction and seamless, collaborative technology as standard in their working environment. So how does workplace collaboration technology need to change to engage them? Firstly, the traditional meeting consisting of all attendees gathering in one room with one large screen to see a presentation, is clearly outdated. Millennials

are bringing laptops, tablets and smartphones to meetings to take notes and to reference work in real time; with the right technology they can share instantly and simultaneously the content locked in those mobile devices across all the walls for everyone to see. Videoteleconferencing and document sharing technologies are already offering room-to-room and peer-to-peer connections across locations but the most sophisticated and productive solutions provide participants simultaneous access and control to a united workspace regardless of their location. Secondly, workplace collaboration systems need to be device agnostic, enabling streams from a wide range of connected devices regardless of operating system, location, or type. Whiteboard, internet, laptops, databank - all of these need to come

The ProDigital Network Controller provides configuration and set-up of the videowall system to the required user-defined array size, pre-sets, source/screen switching and bezel adjustment, without the need for multi-screen control units, or expensive videowall monitors. This style of distribution gives levels of implementation that most HDMI over Cat matrices cannot compete with, MuxLab claims, and can be installed into pre-existing or new LAN infrastructures. The addition

Mary Ann de Lares Norris COO, Oblong Industries together simultaneously and side by side to smash through old barriers to productivity and engagement. Finally, but arguably most importantly, the experience needs to be exhilarating. To truly appeal to the Millennials, workplace collaboration technology needs to be immersive, fast, visually beautiful, innovative, adaptive and future-proof. With the huge advances in visual collaboration and the emergence of Infopresence (the flexible flow of content and data from multiple sources across multiple screens and connected locations on demand), meeting with colleagues can be an exciting, dynamic experience.

Stand: 9-B109 of new screens and sources does not mean redesigning the entire system, the company notes, or purchasing a larger/more expensive distribution hub - just a new encoder per source, or decoder per screen. Motion JPEG compression technology allows for a visually lossless image up to and including 1080p with single frame latency. The Video over IP family of products accept a variety of digital sources including HD/3G-SDI and HDMI, making this solution usable for applications including digital signage or any other commercial/residential project where multiple sources and displays are required.

The long-running AEGO series combines miniature high-clarity satellite speakers and a matching subwoofer that houses the amplifier hardware for all three channels in 2.1 configuration. The system has been popular in both the education and business sectors, installed alongside interactive whiteboards and AV presenters. The new AEGO3 is available in two models, a traditional subwoofer plus alloy-bodied stereo satellite package, and also a new subwoofer plus singlespeaker stereo soundbar package for smaller TV-based installations and residential applications. Over three years in development, AEGO3 also boasts a host of connectivity options including optical digital, analogue and Bluetooth Apt-X wireless. Both options for the AEGO3 benefit from a compact design that keeps its trio of amplifiers in the subwoofer, and feature single mains power input on the subwoofer. This means power does not have to be run to the satellite speakers or soundbar, simplifying installation and reducing complexity of electrical compliance, particularly

in public buildings, according to the company. Neil Truckell, MD, Acoustic Energy, said: “The AEGO series has been our best-selling product in the commercial sector for well over a decade, and the new AEGO3 builds on the performance, connectivity and installation simplicity of the original.

“ISE will expose the AEGO3 to an ever wider audience of European installers and specifiers in our core education and business AV sectors.” Acoustic Energy is exhibiting at ISE alongside the company’s European distributor, AVEMEA.

Transceiver synergises range of technologies AURORA MULTIMEDIA Based on the company’s IPBaseT technology and introduced as the market’s first 4K2K transceiver with zero compression and zero latency, Aurora Multimedia is highlighting the IPX-TC1 4K IP AV Streaming Transceiver. It is, says the company, specifically designed to synergise a wide range of IP/AV technologies, greatly simplifying the overall design, ordering, stocking and system deployment process. With a single unit configurable as a transmitter or receiver, Aurora says it brings simplicity to IP streaming. There is only one SKU – IPX-TC1 Transceiver – allowing a single box to be configured as an input or output, meaning easy ordering/specifying, easy inventory management and easy troubleshooting. Adding dual A/B HDMI inputs on

each unit with local or networked access and practically unlimited matrix capabilities exceeding 128 x 128, Aurora says it lets integrators bring 4K uncompressed video and breakaway audio to an IP streaming environment. “We are extremely proud to announce the release and availability of the IPX-TC1 here at ISE 2016 as this is truly unique to the AV streaming industry,” said Paul Harris, Aurora CEO and founding partner. Suitable for AV signal distribution, routing, control, or videowall processing applications, Aurora’s IPX-TC1 uses standard 10G Ethernet fibre and copper switches. The uncompressed and latency-free unit further facilitates installations by providing network-selectable HDMI inputs and outputs and RS-232 connectivity.

15:30-17:30 Standards Plenary Session InfoComm is devoting two hours in a casual setting to take a look at the standards InfoComm already has, standards in development, and which ones you should be using. Head to Room D403 to demystify AV standards and find out why they matter to your business. Discover what’s out there, who is behind the scenes and how your peers are using InfoComm’s standards. You’ll leave with tips on how to read and use them on your next project. Room D403

16:00-17:30 CEDIA Session: 4K, 8K and HDR – What is the Future of Video? In a world where a new video standard appears almost weekly what exactly is the future of video in the home? What do these standards promise and are they really deliverable? In this CEDIA session, MacBee’s Sawan Nichani will explore the above formats, what is available currently and what might be important to installers in the near future. Delivery methods and content availability will be discussed as will the important question: in a bandwidth limited world, will the quest for greater choice override the drive of higher quality video?

FRIDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS 09:00 Friday Keynote: Dr Michio Kaku – the road to perfect capitalism The Friday Keynote will be given by Dr Michio Kaku, one of the world’s leading scientific figures. He is a recognised expert in Einstein’s unified field theory and has unparalleled skill in predicting trends affecting business, commerce and finance based on the latest scientific research. The Keynote will be held in the Forum, beginning half an hour before the show opens. The leap in technological capability will be such that the future will successfully integrate the brain with the computer. The extremely low costs of these technologies in the future will help to facilitate this. Imagine buying a CD-ROM, not for your computer but for uploading directly into your brain. Picture consultations with robo-doc and robo-lawyer, as we move away from commodity capital and towards intellectual capital. Consider a world without language barriers, as your brain and its computer translate any dialect from around the world. Think about simply blinking when you need to pay for something. Dr Kaku will explain how the impact on business will be just as seismic. He’ll outline the path towards ‘perfect capitalism’. To register for the Keynote visit www.iseurope.org/friday-keynote Location: Forum

10:00-14:00 AV/IT Seminar Programme The objective of the four-hour event is to examine how AV and IT convergence impacts upon our traditional understanding of installed networks and the requirement for increased technical and operational expertise for professionals operating in these sectors. The AV/IT Seminar Programme will provide a mixture of presentations, tutorials and case studies from leading business consultants and educational experts. The programme will look to show IT professionals how modern media systems operate and to demonstrate to AV system planners and integrators how IT departments in large companies run their departments and networks. For more information: www.iseurope.org/av-it-seminar-programme Location: Room G104

11:30-12:00 How UC Enables Workplace Transformation Until now, group videoconferencing has been too expensive, too complicated, and too unavailable for all but a few. Finally, group VC is amazingly affordable and as easy to use, but some key questions remain on how to fundamentally embrace this incredible opportunity to become truly collaborative. Unified Communications Theatre - sponsored by Crestron - on Stand 9-A140

13:00-13:30 Digital Signage Summit Presents: Benetton - The Store as the Place for a Limitless Experience The customer keynote from Benetton will deliver fascinating insights in the ROI of digital signage, how to run effective campaigns and the price of being an early adopter. The Italian clothing company installed the first international store-front network throughout Europe. After successfully operating the installations for four years, Benetton decided to dismantle all displays and reverted to a static display approach. Now Benetton has returned with a new sales focused digital signage concept. While the Live Window project concentrated on the external visibility of the stores, the new concept focuses on the inside of the stores. A key objective of the new strategy is increasing sales by improving instore communication, engagement with customers and enriching their overall shopping experience. With the new system, stores around the world receive standardised Benetton content and messages along with localised adaptations tailored for their market. Commercial Solutions Theatre - as sponsored by KNX - on Stand 8-D360

DIGITAL SIGNAGE

PRODUCTS, SERVICES, TECHNOLOGIES AND OPINIONS FROM AROUND THE SHOW

ANALYSIS: Bright future in the cloud It may be sunny outside the RAI – but for the AV industry, the forecast is deďŹ nitely for clouds. Or rather: the cloud. Nowhere is that more true than in the digital signage industry, notes Ian McMurray, who has witnessed a signiďŹ cant shift towards cloud-based business models in recent times The reasons for that shift are much the same as the reasons that other industries and applications are increasingly storing, managing and delivering information not from their own premises, but from what amounts to a virtual data centre. It’s hard to know which are the most important beneďŹ ts and advantages of cloud-based digital signage. Price? Scalability? Flexibility? Convenience? Security? Outsourcing? The cloud offers all those. Take price, for example: using the cloud can save substantial sums of money in the initial set-up of a digital signage system. Customers pay only for what they use, as they use it. A small digital signage system can quickly become a large one without substantial investment in network infrastructure. The cloud can be accessed by anyone, from anywhere. And so on‌ ISE provides the ideal opportunity to ďŹ nd out how far this trend has progressed. The ISE

website lists over 400 exhibitors claiming to have something to offer in digital signage – which makes it somewhat invidious to look at only a very few of them. One of the highest proďŹ le entrants to the digital signage market in recent years has been Samsung. The company was quick to put in place an ecosystem of partners able to bring industry expertise to bear on Samsung’s hardware. Signagelive, a specialist in the development of cloud-based digital signage applications, was among the early participants, presenting at the launch press conference at ISE 2013, along with industry heavyweight Scala. Signagelive now offers a cloud-based service to support the Samsung Smart Signage Platform (SSSP) – and, at ISE 2015, announced it would offer full support for LG’s new line-up of webOS-based displays. Yet another of the major screen manufacturers – Panasonic – also offers cloud support.

Experiencing multitouch ATRACSYS First-time exhibitor Atracsys is showcasing popupXP, a natural user interface (NUI) application optimised for multi-user interactions on any Windows multitouch screen. It’s described as robust, reactive and exible on screens up to 4K UHD.

The NUI application allows the organisation of multimedia elements in a non-disruptive interactive experience. From there, users can choose from a growing list of standard modules to share content, gather customers insight, play and so on. The content of the NUI application

SEEING THE FUTURE A characteristic that both Samsung’s and LG’s offering shares is how they have embraced SoC (system-on-chip) technology to embed digital signage players into their screens. In theory, that poses a threat to player manufacturers such as BrightSign and SpinetiX – but both those companies have been quick to see the future. The former now has the BrightSign Network, a subscription-based hosted service which is accessible from the company’s BrightAuthor presentation creation, scheduling and publishing system. At ISE last year, SpinetiX launched its cloud-based service, called Cockpit. SigniďŹ cantly, the company noted at the time that this would allow integrators to set up, monitor and control their customers’ digital signage players from anywhere – ‘signiďŹ cantly’ because cloud-based digital

signage offers a real value-add opportunity to resellers. It’s no less good for them because cloud-based systems, with their different economics and expertise requirement, are opening up classes of customer for whom, previously, digital signage was all but unthinkable. Some way ahead of both BrightSign and SpinetiX – the company prefaces its press releases with the claim that it was the â€œďŹ rstâ€? provider of cloudbased software for digital signage networks – is BroadSign. The company now offers BroadSign X (pronounced “BroadSign Tenâ€?), the latest version of its SaaS network management platform. It’s designed to work with BroadSign Xpress, the company’s ďŹ rst Android media player hardware. Other digital signage industry participants to have embraced the cloud include Net Display Systems, whose PADS Server is able to run in the cloud; Onelan’s CMS

Virtual, which can be hosted in the cloud; One Digital Solutions, whose Razor kiosk is described as ‘cloud-ready’; and ClearOne, whose MagicBox WebSuite is designed to work with its MagicBox digital signage media players. If anything, at ISE 2016, the challenge will be for visitors to ďŹ nd digital signage companies who are not talking about the cloud. And they won’t be talking about the weather.

can be remotely controlled and managed through the atracCloud, via a customised CMS for a smooth roll-out on all devices and a control of usage with statistics. Additionally, Atracsys can also implement custom modules adapted to the needs of its customers. The company delivers and implements the NUI application and additional modules internally.

DAKTRONICS The latest developments in LED display technology are on show at the Daktronics stand, alongside a series of short technology seminars being held by the company. The 70sqm stand features Daktronics 1.9mm ultra-high resolution displays, various architectural design elements and an array of traditional 4-10mm products. The veteran ISE exhibitor is also hosting a series of technology seminars at its stand each day of the exhibition at 12:00, 14:00 and 16:00, respectively ‘Swiss Rail – Setting Trends in Transportation’, ‘Creative Applications for Freeform LED’ and ‘The Display. The Content. The Experience’. Visitors are asked to register at www.daktronics.com/ ISE2016 as space is limited. The Daktronics stand also

Daktronics has installed 50 LED video displays throughout 17 railway stations across Switzerland, including Bern (pictured) represents some of the company’s worldwide installations. Having secured the first large European railway installation across the SBB rail network in Switzerland, the stand is emulating the look and feel of what commuters experience on their journey. Daktronics has installed 50 LED video displays, a total of 475sqm, throughout 17 railway stations across Switzerland.

The airport market is another area of focus for the company. At the stand, visitors can experience footage from an installation at LAX airport in Los Angeles. Using digital screens, says Daktronics, the traveller’s journey is made easier, more entertaining and the whole environment that it creates contributes to the airport’s harmonious flow.

Digital signage driving sales ARMAGARD A range of secure, floorstanding and wall-mountable ‘drive thru’ lane solutions, including the new 32in outdoor digital menu totem, is on show at the Armagard stand. Targeted at the restaurant segment, the drive thru digital menu boards aim to increase upselling opportunities by making menus clearer, potentially driving a 3% to 5% sales increase, according to the company. Armagard’s outdoor digital menu board solutions aim to offer an attractive alternative to static, printed menu boards to help eateries benefit from increased sales and reduced overheads such as printing costs or menu change co-ordination across a restaurant chain. Content can be updated quickly and conveniently on the fully outdoor ready signage, enabling the addition of

Outdoor LCD display maker Keewin is showcasing its ultra thin air-cooled outdoor displays, which can be wall, ceiling or standalone mounted. This new line of products, with particular attention paid to brightness and heat dissipation, has been rolled out to public transport, storefronts, hotels, schools, parks, banks and more. First-time ISE exhibitor Keewin uses in-house technology for brightness calibration, which automatically sets higher screen brightness to compensate for high solar intensity environments. The displays carry light sensors that detect changes in surrounding brightness and can adjust screen brightness up to 2,500cd/sqm. This enables media content to be clearly visible from a distance, even under strong sunlight exposure. To prevent short- and longterm damage to the display due to overheating, Keewin’s patented aluminium modular chassis design increases surface contact with air, which is pushed through the unit by a series of fans. Aluminium’s high heat conductance transforms the entire body of the display panel into a heat sink. A self-developed temperature control system adjusts the fans accordingly. The thinnest of the new product line is the KWO55, which is as thick as the length of an iPhone 5S (12cm) and offers multiple orientation options.

The entire aluminium body of the KWO55 acts as a heat sink There are fixation points along the rear, top and bottom of the unit for different scenarios of use. It also has a brightness range of 2,500-5,000(cd/ sqm), which is automatically adjusted based on the surroundings. All of Keewin’s outdoor display products are tested to comfortably operate in a 50ºC surrounding temperature and 1,200W/sqm direct sunlight exposure. Their IP65 and IP55 rated outdoor products go through rigorous 360º waterproofing and dust-proofing tests. In the midst of the torturous testing, Keewin’s products must also endure a 60ºC bake and remain operating concurrently.

85in 4K touchscreen ZYTRONIC A curved multitouch kiosk and a new object recognition function for touch tables are on show at the Zytronic stand, alongside a giant 85in 4K touchscreen aimed at retailers and other users. In response to an increasing demand for screens of 55in diagonal and above, the manufacturer of rugged PCT and MPCT touchscreens can now create bespoke touchscreens of up to 85in diagonal, with 4K resolution,

which are able to detect over 40 simultaneous touch points and are capable of resisting challenging conditions. Also on show at ISE for the first time is the Zytronic curved multitouch kiosk. This proof of concept unit features a single edgeto-edge printed, toughened and curved-glass multitouch interface combining a 40in main screen and a 19in waist-height button deck. The twin display/single glass surface is managed by two ZXY200 multitouch controllers.

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Finally, a demonstration of object recognition functionality, an unusual development aimed at touch tables in retail applications and based on Zytronic’s MPCT touch technology, is available to visitors. Commenting, Ian Crosby, sales and marketing director said: “For many applications, the fact that projected capacitive touch technology ignores non-conductive objects contacting the surface is a definite advantage. However, some retail uses would benefit from the touchscreen recognising specific objects placed upon its surface – and this is something that we are now able to offer.”

Stand: 8-E210

Outdoor LED signage SHENZHEN Q-COLOR TECHNOLOGY A range of LED display products is on show at the Q-Color stand, including the lightweight MD-5T LED topper sign for mobile message distribution. At around 18kg per unit, this product is durable enough for outdoor use. Its maximal power consumption is around 300W/unit and the unit remains at an average temperature of 30º due to a customised power supply installed at the bottom of the sign. The sign contains no visible cables and is accessible from the front for easy maintenance. It runs over 3G, WiFi or group control, with GPS features to support certain types of advertising campaigns. Also on show is the MO-3.91 totem all-in-one LED screen with a 1:2.5 aspect ratio, which comes coated in

SHENZHEN YAHAM OPTOELECTRONICS Yaham’s new wireless X0 cabinet, designed for the company’s latest outdoor weatherproof module, is now ready for sale and on show at ISE 2016. The cabinet, which is 88mm thick, includes a 90° rotating lock system to enable both rear and front servicing.

The Sphere_470 is capable of focusing sound directly into specific areas

Transporting UHD/4K at 60Hz – what are the current solutions? UHD/4K displays and projectors, even though readily available, still have HDMI interface limitations at 60Hz. The HDMI 2.0a chipset with 18Gbps bandwidth is not available yet. The current HDMI interface (10.2Gbps) carries UHD/4K resolution at only 30Hz, and HDMI 2.0b at 60Hz is a workaround: 8-bit samples and 4:2:0 interface. Luminance has UHD/4K resolution but chrominance has only HD/2K resolution. There are currently two approaches to carry 10-bit UHD/4K at 60Hz without compromise. First, four 3G-SDI signals over coax cables, mainly QHD, where each cable carries one quarter of the picture. The second approach is Display Port 1.2. With the first approach, QHD

computer-generated content is often available as four HDMI 1.4 1080p signals, which need to be converted to SDI. Furthermore, when this content feeds several projectors that are blended, the SDI converted signals need to be in sync. The Apantac openGear OG-US-3500 scaler with genlock is an ideal solution. As a side note, coax cables carry 3G-SDI signals over a much longer distance than regular HDMI cables. Switching 3G-SDI is more cost effective than switching HDMI. The second approach, Display Port 1.2, has sufficient bandwidth to carry 10-bit UHD/4K at 60Hz on a single cable. More and more monitors and projectors support this interface. When conversion is necessary,

Michel Rudelle EMEA regional manager, Apantac such as driving DP 1.2 displays with four 3G-SDI signals, Apantac’s Micro-4K-DP converter is an ideal solution. The OG-US-3500, the Micro4K-DP – shown in combination with a Da Vinci Resolve 4K colour grading solution – and many more products are showcased on the Apantac stand.

Outdoor speakers complement landscape ARCHITETTURA SONORA Making its first appearance at ISE is Italian audio company Architettura Sonora. Part of the B&C Speaker Group, a manufacturer of transducers, Architettura Sonora designs and manufactures its speakers in-house, specialising in sound systems for deployment outdoors. In fact, the company notes that it particularly values sound design in relation to architecture and landscape. Typical of the company’s products is the Sphere_470. Conceived to be acoustically efficient and capable of focusing sound directly into specific areas, the two-way coaxial unit has a frequency range of 50-18,000Hz and is driven by a 200W amplifier. What mostly distinguishes it, however, is its globe shape and that it is created from travertine, marble

or other architectural materials. The company notes that each of its sound modules is individually and meticulously produced by skilled craftsmen, and is a unique piece of art highly distinguished by sound quality, design innovation and tactile features rarely associated with speaker design. The Architettura Sonora team recently developed the VD-Line, designed in collaboration with landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic, which the company describes as a remarkable achievement of sound engineering and cutting edge design. In 2014, the VD-Line received the A+ Architizer Award. Architettura Sonora also developed a ‘sonic garden’ for internationally acclaimed tenor Andrea Bocelli at his villa in Tuscany.

Introducing Primal bulk wire ICE CABLE SYSTEMS The new Primal series of entrylevel, safety certified bulk wire from ICE Cable Systems is being introduced at ISE 2016. According to ICE president Brian Rizzo, Primal is the most affordable category and speaker cable on the market today that complies with important safety regulations. “For the most cost-conscious jobs out there, installers can confidently spec Primal as the lowest-priced line of category and speaker cables on the residential market that still meet stringent UL, ETL and NEC safety standards,” said Rizzo. The line consists of pricesensitive SKUs: Cat5, Cat6, and 16-gauge and 14-gauge speaker cables. All are offered in a pullbox that incorporates reinforced handles and a water-resistant laminate similar to those found in the company’s Big Mouth Payout Box (BMP). To keep wire-pulls free of knots, kinks and tangles, the Primal box, along with BMP, use Reelex coil and payout technology. “Primal offers many of the convenience features and safety aspects of the ICE line. In

The Primal series of entry-level, safety certified bulk wire compliance with UL, ETL and NEC standards, we’re using flametested jackets and full copper wire as opposed to non-certified compounds and copper-clad aluminium (CCA) so commonly found in entry-level offerings,” added Rizzo. “The benefit here is offering product at this price-level while including Reelex technology and safety compliance.” The full line of Primal is now available and shipping. The category cables are available in 1,000ft runs and in multiple colour options. The speaker cable is available in runs of 500 and 1,000ft (depending on gauge) in white. ICE Cable Systems has more than 50 active distributors around the world selling its products.

Video management tools launched AXLE VIDEO Making its ISE debut is American software developer axle Video. The company is launching its axle 2016 series of tools to manage and search large amounts of video, along with a number of bundled hardware/software solutions that incorporate networked storage. Before axle, the company says, the task of managing, searching and sharing large amounts of media files was an elaborate undertaking, with expensive storage systems and customised media management software, with total costs of a deployment easily stretching into six figures. By contrast, the company says it has been able to offer software solutions starting at €2,000 and hardware/software

solutions from €5,000 to €15,000 by radically simplifying the software deployment and training required. axle software works with any web browser and is also said to be compatible with a wide range of network protocols and media formats. The axle 2016 system takes the axle media management platform and adds several new key features, including a Google-style Elastic Search capability that allows anyone to find media based on simple search criteria; a software dashboard, tightly integrated with axle, that provides ongoing status readouts for the system; and integration with Adobe’s Premiere CC and Anywhere solutions via a drag-and-drop panel interface. The company, founded in 2012,

says it already has hundreds of customers worldwide, including governments, universities, sports teams, corporate video departments and churches. axle Video’s hardware/software solutions come with unlimited user access to the networked storage, and a five-user license for the axle media management software including a year of software updates. “We know corporate, government, sports and educational customers are looking for powerful new search tools as well as cost-effective storage options for their video content,” said Sam Bogoch, CEO of axle. “Now, they can accomplish this with a very affordable complete system.”

New lectern range launched

IT and AV connectivity solutions provider and new ISE exhibitor KanexPro is announcing the latest addition to its line-up in the shape of two HDMI matrix switchers – the HDMX44-4K and HDMX88-4K. They feature 4K/60Hz with HDCP2.2, and deliver what the company describes as a “lightning fast” time between switching of less than 0.2 seconds. The matrix switchers are available in combinations of 4x4 and 8x8. The 4x4 HDMI matrix switcher includes four inputs and four outputs with audio deembedding and the latest HDCP 2.2 specifications, and supports video resolutions up to 4,096 x 2,160 at 60Hz. The 8x8 version consists of eight inputs and eight outputs, with the same specifications. The HDMX44-4K and HDMX88-4K are said to be ideal for commercial applications including military, medical, worship centres and government audiovideo platforms where immediate and dependable HDMI switching

and distribution of 4K video is a requirement. They are controlled entirely via RS-232, IR and webbased GUI using Ethernet, allowing integrators to switch, control and matrix directly from a touch panel or computer. “These ultra-fast HDCP 2.2-compliant switchers are the solution for mission-critical needs that require immediate switching and distribution with the highest resolutions,” said Matthew Bute, vice president of sales and marketing for KanexPro. “We created this switcher with those applications in mind and it allows integrators and end-users to have a solution tailored directly to their need.” Both HD switchers provide four or eight additional audio ports via S/PDIF connectors to supports de-embedding from HDMI and expedient firmware upgrade through micro USB ports. The switchers transmit 4K x 2K at 60Hz signal up to 15m and feature easy installation through their rackmounting design.

Bringing the right pieces together Zooming in on customised solutions that matter to buyers The rise of digital devices and ubiquitous displays is well underway. With the Internet of Things growing rapidly and emerging markets fast becoming replacement markets, it is now more important than ever that manufacturers and solution providers sharpen our offerings to precisely meet users’ needs. Three essential considerations will help the installation AV and digital signage markets continue to fulfil customer expectations and accelerate technology adoption: • Display innovation: New LED and laser light sources with long lamp life, higher resolution with image enhancement, and advances such as 360º omnidirectional projection and seamless image blending will enable new possibilities in applications previously unimaginable. • Software integration: Total

solutions and services for the greatest benefit of customers will require embedded software systems such as simplified digital signage content creation and management, wireless HD streaming, and driverless multitouch. • Categorisation and positioning: As unique technologies flourish, it will become increasingly crucial to provide the right information and product recommendations to specifically meet challenging customer requirements. Taking our leadership role seriously, BenQ has strived to build these key pillars to contribute towards the industry’s success. Even as we continue to advance display technology in the projection, digital signage and interactive flat panel markets, we now provide end-to-end vertical integration of a dependable

Chief is shipping its new suspended ceiling projector system, which claims to cut install time by onethird. The new design of the SYSAUW includes an improved suspended ceiling plate, column system, mount and universal interface. Feedback indicated that problems included inconsistent suspended ceiling grid systems, cable management, adjustment and cumbersome installation processes. “A big thing we saw is projectors are often installed twice,” said Luke Westin, product manager. “People align the ceiling plate, hook up the projector to find the best location, and then take it apart again to cut a

hole in the ceiling tile. We worked to eliminate the need for that.” For speed and accuracy of adjustment, a new mount was created that builds upon the RPA and RPM, Chief’s existing projector mounts. The RPT mount adds ‘Tool-Free Microzone’ adjustment with a positive drive system to keep adjustments in place without the need for set screws. All the adjustment capabilities aim to drastically reduce the need for digital adjustments in the projector, which can negatively affect image quality. “With the adjustable 305mm column, this should work for 90% of suspended ceiling installations,” added Westin.

LED is the future LANG

Lang is focusing on the opportunity provided by LED

Many in the industry believe that 2016 is when LED technology could start to displace LCD technology in many applications, now that it is achieving significantly finer pixel pitches. Lang is certainly focusing on the new opportunity under the banner ‘Lang LED Worlds’. The company says that it is increasingly being asked by its resellers – often confused by the rapidly growing array of potential suppliers, and the difficulty of differentiating one product/ supplier from another based on provided specifications – for advice about LED technology. The company claims that it is uniquely placed to respond to such requests, as it has relationships with a number of LED manufacturers and can influence the products that are designed and produced as well as request modifications where standard products are unsuitable for a specific application. Lang is reinforcing its position with an eyecatching display on its ISE stand which features an 8K x 4K LED wall, using 1.22mm pixel pitch panels. The wall is 9.6m wide by 5.4m high. Play out is via Lang’s own HMS-1 media server,

Why do you think the ISE show has managed to grow year after year?

The global reach of this show is amazing. ISE is the only show in the world where just about every company in the business, no matter how small or large, is present and showing their products. Because of this, the show attracts customers from every continent. Amsterdam is a great city (even in February) and it helps to make this show accessible and easy to attend. It has become the best venue for getting product exposure, networking efficiently and growing your business.

I believe the ISE show occupies a very special position as the key barometer for future developments in the technology infrastructure that is the foundation of the modern built environment. Audiovisual and information technology are now woven into our daily lives so completely that it is impossible to separate the two, and the broad appeal of the ISE show reflects this perfectly – it’s the poster-child for AV-IT convergence!

Clearly we see ISE’s growth from the perspective of a proaudio manufacturer, and are looking at the increased importance of audio quality in fixed installation projects. We believe that this is a clear market trend that ISE has been really clever to address by being prepared to host big multi-technology platforms where experts from different disciplines can share their experiences and come up with new and smart integrated solutions. The previous lack of an international reference show in Europe that addresses this demand for integration, has contributed to the success of ISE in the last five years.

In many ways it is a kick-off to the calendar and has become the one and only ‘go to’ exhibition during the year to see and experience the latest AV solutions for many integrators and end users. There is not a single reason for its success, but rather a combination of being held in one of the most easy to reach and beautiful cities in Europe, the density of exhibitors and market participants, the excellent organisation of the host and, last but not least, the attractiveness of the industry – professional AV technology basically has become part of everyone’s life – it’s everywhere.

Conference microphone can be hidden MEDIA VISION The new digital conference microphone by Taiden being presented on the Media Vision stand is designed for integrators and end-users who are keen to hide all meeting technology solutions when not in use. The HCS-4851 is a flush-mount unit with a retractable line array microphone and mic activation button. A cover plate hides all electronics when the microphone is fully retracted. When taken out for usage, the Taiden HCS-4851 microphone array has a total length of 20cm with a 30º lean angle; the microphone placement offers proximity to the sound source while using the advanced physical characteristics of a microphone array, which is said to ensure excellent pick-up of the human voice and to reject ambient noise from above and below the microphone. “Our advocacy for conference systems is supported by the technical evidence that when a mic is close to the sound source it delivers a cleaner audio signal,”

New projector for large venues NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS Launched this month, the PX803UL from NEC is designed for the demanding large venue environment, delivering 8,000 lumens of brightness. Target applications include rental/staging, higher education, museums, large corporate meeting rooms and signage. Based on DLP technology and featuring a 20,000-hour laser light source, making it, notes the company, maintenance-free, it features a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. The projector can accept a 4K input.

NEC points out that the PX803UL benefits from all the advantages of laser technology as an illumination source with its extended colour gamut and high detail. Weighing 25kg, the PX903UL is available with a selection of wide zoom bayonet lenses, wide vertical and horizontal lens shift and control code emulation. This, according to NEC, makes for not only troublefree installation but also ease of replacing previous projector installations. Also featured are an HDMIout signal loop through, built-in signal splitter and edge blending

capability, enabling large images without external devices. PiP functionality allows additional sources to be displayed. Connectivity includes HDBaseT, HDMI and DisplayPort. Portrait mode projection is possible, as is 360º free tilt installation. Geometric adjustment and 3D support. NEC also offers its free Multi-Display Management Software. With NaViSet Administrator 2, the company says, a user can manage all connected display devices from a centralised location.

RESIDENTIAL SOLUTIONS NEWS, VIEWS AND UPDATES FROM THE HOME TECHNOLOGY SECTOR

ANALYSIS: BIG VISION FOR UHD Falling prices and increasing availability of HDR content will drive UHD adoption, says Michael Burns Video for the home is currently in the early stages of an exciting revolution that holds great promise for entertainment and enjoyment – one that aims to deliver richer colour and more realistic pictures that make TV content pop out of the screen. That may sound slightly familiar, but this time you won’t have to don a pair of fancy glasses to enjoy it. We’ve witnessed an inexorable rise of 4K/Ultra High Definition (UHD) in home entertainment, kicking off almost immediately after the major broadcasters took note of a public lack of interest in stereoscopic 3D and pulled the plug on their 3D plans. 4K/UHD on the other hand, with four times the resolution of HD, is gaining fans among the content providers. Both Netflix and Amazon have 4K offerings, while YouTube and Vimeo are streaming 4K usergenerated (including NASA) content to UHD-capable smart TVs. So what factors will facilitate the uptake of 4K/UHD in the residential market this year? The main factor is price, according to Jessy Crabb, general manager, Metra Home Theater Group. “As the price drops, more people will purchase,” says Crabb. “There is certainly a growing awareness of 4K and what it can offer to the TV viewer. With the launches of Amazon 4K,

Netflix 4K as well as the possibility of disc-based 4K content, the future is bright for consumer available content and 4K/UHD adoption.” Michael Khain, co-founder and vice president engineering, Atlona, says 4K/UHD is already proving to be a huge success in the residential display market. “Sales data indicate far greater penetration by UHD technology compared to 3D,” says Khain. “The price of 4K/UHD TVs is similar to the cost of midrange 1080p TVs.” Another factor to push 4K will be the increasing interest in high dynamic range (HDR) video content.

The current aim is for a higher dynamic range that results in a display experience closer to reality, and hence of greater impact or immersion. HDR also increases the subjective sharpness of images and so provides a double benefit. Metra’s Crabb feels the retail sector that’s currently betting on 4K will get a boost with the introduction of HDR. “4K content will look even better on an HDR system and consumers will easily see this difference,” she says. “When compared to current 4K/60Hz, 4:2:0 content, which is lacking in colour depth, HDR will bring a level of detail

Home automation starter kits ELKO EP Pride of place on the ELKO EP stand goes to the company’s smart home starter kits with what the company describes as intelligent electroinstallation. Thanks to wireless technology, the kit enables the control of a home’s heating, lighting or music from one device, such as a smartphone (Android or iPhone), tablet or smart TV.

A Smart RF box, which is connected to the LAN, enables control, including remotely, of up to 40 devices from the user’s phone or tablet. It can be used for the control of hot water or electric under-floor heating, temperature measurement via wireless sensors, appliance switching (such as garage doors, shutters, blinds, fans, irrigation, sockets), light dimming (LED, energysaving, halogen or incandescent bulbs), time switching (after no

Game of Lights’ is among the starter kits offered by ELKO EP

movement is detected for the selected time delay, the lights switch off) and camera integration. Smart RF boxes can be connected to increase range, or repeaters can be configured. The heating kit includes three wireless thermovalves that replace standard radiator valves. They measure the room temperature and send it to the RF touch control unit, which compares it with the temperature set along with time schedule and sends a command to open or close the valve. For lighting, ELKO offers its ‘Game of Lights’ kit, which includes three dimmable coloured bulbs (550 lumens, 9W power consumption, up to 30,000 hours life) containing an RF module. ELKO also offers LARA, a music and internet radio player. An inbuilt amplifier allows direct connection of speakers or connection of external in-wall or ceiling speakers.

and depth that will put what we have been watching to shame.” James Meredith, NetworkHD and Enado product manager, WyreStorm Technologies, sees HDR being standard at the high end to begin with, with the release of UHD Blu-ray driving sales of panels with HDR support. “The new UHD Premium certification will help users understand that they are buying the best that UHD has to offer,” he adds. There are already a few UHD TVs also ready to deliver on the promise of HDR. Top 4K models with HDR technology from ISE 2016 exhibitors Samsung and Dolby are available now at the premium end of the residential market. “4K/UHD is clearly, strongly on the advance, and we can only expect these displays continue to take an increasing share of the market,” says Khain. “Now and on into 2018 the content and delivery systems will catch up with the display technology. Any system being installed today above the base should be designed to support 4K displays and content.” However, installers should know that there are issues with bandwidth. 4K demands four times greater bandwidth than HD video, so the HDMI 2.0 specification was introduced to support the demand posed by 4K.

HDMI 2.0 is backwards compatible with HDMI, but that’s not going to be enough for HDR. “The HDR HDMI signal is all the way out to 18Gbps of bandwidth, and many existing systems will not be able to handle these requirements,” says Crabb. And yet another new specification, HDMI 2.0a, was introduced in 2015, just to add metadata to handle HDR content. It’s not really bad news for ISE attendees, however. “For installers there is the opportunity to upgrade existing systems – utilising the same cables they installed for 1080p HDBT distribution,” says WyreStorm’s Meredith. “Customers seeing HDR will be wanting HDR and will, in most cases, require an upgrade to their system to handle the full bandwidth requirement of the HDMI 2.0a at 18Gbps,” agrees Crabb. “Installers should see a boost in their business in 2016.”

The future is‌ bronze Fasttel’s range of door furniture and access systems is available in bronze

FASTTEL According to exhibitor Fasttel, bronze is big these days – which is why the company is extending the range of products it offers that feature a bronze ďŹ nish. Targeting villas and hotels, the company introduced its Wizard Bronze doorphones approximately a year ago. This bronze version of the entry phones, which can provide remote access entry for gates and doors, added a new option to the range. Compatible with smartphones and tablets, the device is fabricated entirely in copper and can be bronzed in three colours. On request, the Wizard Bronze can be made available in custom sizes and even engraved with a personalised name and logo. According to Fasttel, demand for complementary products is growing rapidly, and has resulted in the company introducing two new products.

The ďŹ rst is an access keyboard that Fasttel claims radiates the same level of classiness as the Wizard Bronze. Also fabricated in copper, it can be bronzed in one of three possible colours. It can be used as a standalone keyboard (it has two independent relays) and/or as a Wiegand keyboard by connecting it with any third-party brand. Thus, says the company, means it can be customised to any customer’s needs.

Also available is a complete letterbox system – also fabricated entirely in copper and equally customisable to the client’s needs. Thanks to the extendible bracket, the system will ďŹ t any door or wall thickness. The unit can be delivered with or without an integrated door phone, and can be provided with or without camera, access keyboard, engraved name and so on.

Introducing TeamConnect Wireless conferencing

EXHIBITOR VIEW TICO light visually lossless video compression moving pro AV environments to 4K and 8K The growing adoption of this compression technology is aiding the move towards increasingly high-quality digital video transmission Digital video is large. Really large. With the new ultra-high-definition, high dynamic range or high frame rate video that we hope to deliver in the future, the amount of data grows larger. Moving large amounts of data instantly over IP is technically difficult and expensive with uncompressed. For this reason, we have to use compression techniques to reduce the amount of data being transmitted. The new TICO compression is answering the challenge of carrying HD over 1G or UHDTV over 10GbE infrastructure with only a few lines of latency, a visually lossless quality on any type of AV content (4:2:2 or 4:4:4) with a

minimal footprint or cost on FPGA or ASIC chips. It has been recently adopted as a SMPTE RDD35 and demonstrated by several large organisations, such as Evertz, Grass Valley and Panasonic. Last year, a TICO Alliance (www. tico-alliance.org) was created to promote the use of this new compression in IP networks and has been working in an open collaboration to specify how to carry any video format over any transport scheme, starting with RTP, 3G-SDI and SMPTE 2022 standards. The alliance has been growing and welcomes any companies or organisations interested in embracing this

Mark II CRMS launched ALCONS AUDIO

MIC RO FL EX ® A DVANCE ™ A BREAKTHROUGH IN INVISIBLE AUDIO FOR AV CONFERENCING New patent-pending technology, provides an incredibly accurate audio capture to ensure that each meeting participant is clearly heard. The smart solution with breakthrough ‘invisible audio’ concept, provides a natural, comfortable and productive meeting environment where effective communication is brought to the forefront and the technology hides in the background.

NEW INTELLIGENT, NETWORKED MICROPHONES FIND OUT MORE AT HALL3 C90

Eight years after the introduction of the original, Alcons has launched the Mark II version of its CRMS Cinema Reference Monitor System. The CRMS is a three-way sound system designed to offer the most natural 1:1 digital cinema and HD audio sound reproduction possible. Featuring the patented RBN401 pro-ribbon driver, the CRMS combines remarkable clarity and intelligibility with unusually high headroom SPL, says Alcons. The pro-ribbon drivers have up to 90% less distortion than any conventional mid/high transducer, the company claims, while the very high peak power handling offers a 1:16 RMS-topeak ratio, enabling maximum screen compensations without any audible stress on the MHF performance. The patented horizontal dispersion of the RBN401 extends the stereo imaging

and depth-of-field to a larger number of seats in the auditorium while, due to the ‘compression-less’ principle of the pro-ribbon transducer, the system is said to have a linear response at any SPL, from the quietest whisper to the loudest explosion or drum solo. The CRMS system consists of a separate adjustable mid-high frequency section, featuring one RBN401 4in proribbon driver HF with non-vented 8in midrange driver, and a vented low frequency section with 15in woofer with low powercompression 4in voice-coil design. A matching surround system with identical MF/HF components, CRMS-SR, is available, offering screen/surround blending, resulting, says Alcons, in a very uniform sound stage and a seamless transition between surround positions in an immersive sound system. “With the Mark II version of the CRMS, we were able to fine-tune the system on

The CRMS is designed to offer the most natural sound reproduction possible details to increase the resolution even further,” said Philip ‘Dr.Phil’ de Haan, head of Alcons Audio R&D. “The wider, slanted mid-high top cabinet construction increases the stereo imaging; the new 8in mid-range driver and 15in woofer significantly increase power handling and reduce power compression.”

ClearSHOT 10 USB camera on show VADDIO ISE 2016 sees the first major European showing of the new ClearSHOT 10 USB camera, which the Vaddio describes as an enterpriseclass USB 3.0 PTZ conferencing camera with full remote manageability at an entry-level price. The ClearSHOT 10 USB feature set includes simultaneous uncompressed USB 3.0 and IP (H.264) streaming outputs, allowing the camera to be controlled and operated anywhere in the world. Because the camera uses standard UVC drivers, no special USB drivers need to be installed, allowing for seamless integration with any software application on any operating system. “As more enterprise videoconferencing users adopt soft codecs like Microsoft’s Skype for Business and Google’s Chrome for Work, the demand for video performance beyond consumer-grade

web cams has continued to grow,” said Ed Ellett, president and CEO of Vaddio. “As a proven market leader in PTZ camera technology, the ClearSHOT 10 USB brings the quality of professional grade video to corporate meeting spaces.” With a 74º wide horizontal field of view and 10X optical zoom, the ClearSHOT 10 USB is said to provide great flexibility in a variety of applications including small to medium-sized conference rooms and huddle rooms as well as corporate, healthcare, government and education environments. “With so many consumer-grade web cams on the market today, it is easy to settle for a less than satisfactory video in your meeting

The new ClearSHOT 10 USB camera is an enterprise-class USB 3.0 PTZ conferencing camera room,” continued Ellett. “The ClearSHOT 10 USB is Vaddio’s answer to enterprise-class collaboration at an entry-level price that doesn’t compromise on quality.”

VOX POP

Which technology do you think will have the greatest impact on the industry over the next five years – and why?

Web-based technologies will explode in the next three to five years. The importance of in-browser applications cannot be underestimated. From a collaboration point of view, services that allow high-quality, highdefinition, browser-based video and content collaboration through emerging industry standards are set to have a massive impact. WebRTC is already emerging as a viable option, and it is likely that as enterprises embrace the technology, it will serve for business-to-business collaboration as well for B2C interactions with customers.

Fibre, definitely. It is the only cable that will support the bandwidth requirements in 2021. 4K30 and possibly 4K60 (4:2:0) can be squeezed down a Cat6 cable for 100 metres but when it comes time to fire up your 4K60 (4:4:4) system you will need to pull cable to deliver the 17Gbps bandwidth required. If an integrator or consultant is truly mindful of the future and of their customer, they have to be using fibre on every new installation.

Touchscreen size is increasing further, and we’ve seen demand for large touch sensors of 55-85in increase by 50% over the last year, for a broad range of applications. Such touchscreens can be mounted on the wall, an angled plinth or even integrated into a coffee table to offer browsing and product selection in a relaxed setting. The challenge is providing users with the touch experience offered by the latest smartphones and tablets but on a much larger screen and often in a much more demanding environment.

and six AB zone configurations where the second amplifier is a standby amp used in case of failure of the main amplifier. The miniVES is equipped with integral backup power supply, charging unit and the necessary EN54-4 circuitry for the DC back-up and battery checker. It is designed to be a plug and play solution with all the elements to be expected from voice evacuation systems including built-in fire microphone, programmable contact inputs and outputs, space for an hour of pre-recorded messages and slots

for batteries – all fitted in an IP30 chassis. The miniVES family can be networked together and extended by desktop zone microphones or fire microphones via a TCP/IP network, providing live announcements and background music inputs. The system has been designed to be wired using Cat5 cables for paging microphones and fibre optic redundant interlink connections between the systems.

UPDATES AND OPINIONS FROM ISE’S NEWEST THEMED AREA

Flexible sound options and custom controls Networked VACIE system in a box HACOUSTO INTERNATIONAL

BOSE The F1 flexible array loudspeaker family is being expanded, with products designed for both portable and installed applications. Bose is also bringing significant enhancements to its ControlSpace Remote software, with the new version 2 being showcased during ISE 2016. The F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker is available in both powered and passive models and provides contractors and installers with flexible options for installed sound. Bose says it offers the ability to create up to four different coverage patterns for a wide range of applications and venues F1 Model 812 loudspeakers include top and rear hang points

along with three dedicated brackets for flexible mounting. Pan and tilt, yoke and U bracket options are available. The company says its powered and passive F1 loudspeakers are ideal for permanent installations in sports bars, live music venues, clubs, schools, houses of worship and any small to medium size venue requiring a high performance loudspeaker solution. ControlSpace Remote (CSR) allows integrators to distribute remote control of Bose Professional networked systems in any venue, for any user, across multiple devices. Available as a free download from pro.Bose.com, CSR version 2 sees updates across all three of its main components, CSR Builder, CSR App and the newly released CSR Admin.

CSR Builder’s templated-GUI approach has been expanded with full customisation options. Users can now create custom layouts, insert images and create navigation between GUI collections and panels. Bose says that preset configurations make it easy to render the design to each end-user device. CSR App is available for mobile phones and tablets on iOS and Android platforms, but CSR App 2.0 additionally brings a revamped user interface and support for Mac OS X and Windows PC-based clients. ControlSpace Remote also now offers an Admin tool for both Mac and Windows machines, where facility owners and managers can self-distribute the app to staff devices.

The 4 EVAC Compact 500 voice evacuation system is being introduced at ISE 2016. EN54 compliant, this addition to the 4 EVAC range of commercial voice-alarm control and indication equipment solutions delivers digital audio distribution technology using a networked VACIE (voice alarm control and indicating equipment) solution. Based on a distributed boxed amplifier concept, the Compact500 features a variety of compact, self-contained and wall-mounted control and indicating voice alarm panels that create a flexible and easy-to-control platform. Describing the Compact 500 as “a system in a box”, Hacousto says it “fuses the simplicity of a standalone system with the benefits of global network topology”. It drives two high priority livestream audio channels and one serial data channel (RS485) over a redundant global network loop into global Compact 500 systems. Each Compact 500 operates a threechannel message player on top of the two live streams, and sends multichannel and synchronised audio into local and networked zones.

The Compact 500 VA system drives two networked audio channels and one serial data channel Each Compact 500 provides inbuilt routing to six single zones, with a total speaker load of 500W. A fireman’s microphone, an active back-up amplifier and an EN54-4 battery charger are included as standard, for a maximum capacity of up to 55Ah. A single installation can reach over 1500 speaker lines, accumulated into multiple paging zones within a system architecture of 256 prioritised levels.

Making light of heavy loads FENIX A fully redesigned lifting tower, the lightest and most compact frontal loading tower that Fenix Stage has manufactured, is on show at ISE 2016. The AT-04 has a 1.58m minimum height, weighs 84kg and offers a closed base of 48.5cm x 38cm. Fenix says this makes it easily transportable and perfect for raising line array systems, trusses or LED screens. AT-04 is capable of lifting the load from the floor with the minimum effort, says the company, while its safety pins prevent the load from falling. The safety pins also allow selection of different heights, the ability to raise all bars equally and distribute the load from the mast to the last bar, which increases its stability and security. In addition, a new locking system allows anchoring of the outriggers in an easy and safe way. Fenix claims the new features extend the tower’s lifetime with no need for spare parts, guaranteeing “the

same security as the first day”. All models in the AT lifting tower series are made of aluminium and are available in silver and black. Fenix has also recently created the AC-613, a new accessory for its SQ-29 truss. The AC-613 is a union hinge, which replaces most angular corners for the Fenix 29mm x 29mm squared truss. It is also available for SQ-40, a 40mm x 40mm squared truss. It allows opening from 0° to 60°, while two large central ribs give stability to the assembly, made of a 1cm thick aluminium plate. Not limited to selecting one angle, users can perform multiple projects such as sloping roofs and gable roofs, scalable in size without the need for specially made parts. Its weight (6.2kg) is a significant reduction when compared with the old hinge joints, which, Fenix claims, makes this accessory very manageable and easy to install. To set the angle, it has a safety pin plus two screws that secure the top plate to the bottom plate,

providing greater robustness, and so greater security, to the whole.

ATLAS CABLES Zeno, a ‘totally new’ range of high-performance replacement headphone cables has been introduced by the engineering-led cable specialist Atlas Cables. Designed to offer a light, compliant, yet durable upgrade, Zeno combines Atlas Cables’ technology with a new range of dedicated solder-free connectivity options called Metik. The result, says the company, is a replacement cable that can work across a broad range of headphones. Hand-built in Scotland and available now, Zeno delivers a significant audio improvement over the often average quality cables supplied with even high-end headphones, the company claims.

Developed specifically for Zeno and covering a variety of headphone connection options, Atlas says the Metik non-solder crimp plugs provide signal consistency from socket to socket. Available in 2.5mm, 3.5mm, 6.3mm and 4-pin XLR mini for the headphone end and 3.5mm, 6.3mm and 4-pin XLR for the amplifier end, Metik plugs offer a direct, airtight metal to metal contact, intended to provide minimal losses and maximum fidelity. Options are available for brandspecific headphone connections, such as Sennheiser, OPPO, Shure, AKG, Audeze, AudioQuest, HiFiMan and Ultrasone. Atlas says it is also able to source the correct connections for the majority of headphones available.

Ottocanali and X series amps stack up the power MPA-Series mixer amps get makeover POWERSOFT The X series and upgraded Ottocanali series amplifier lines are being showcased by Powersoft. The X4 and X8 power amplifiers share an ‘innovative’ system of channel routing, power supplies and DSP, says Powersoft. They natively support AES3, two redundant Dante digital streams and analogue inputs, providing up to four different selectable input sources per channel. Powersoft X4 condenses four channels into 1RU, while Powersoft X8 doubles the available channels and the rack units. Both amplifiers share the same power density, being capable of delivering up to 5000W at 2 ohms per channel. The upgraded Ottocanali series consists of three 8-channel power amplifiers delivering up to a total

The distinctive 5000W Powersoft X8 series condenses eight channels into 2RU The revamped MPA mixer amps feature new balanced auxiliary, utility and music-on hold outputs of 12,000W at 4 ohms. Powersoft says this makes it an ideal, economical option for multi-zone applications in mid to large-scale installs, where space saving is also a requirement. The 2RU models, the Ottocanali 4K4, 8K4 and 12K4, implement two redundant universal switch mode power supplies with PFC and patented SRM (Smart Rails Management) technology that maximises the efficiency of the

system as well as reducing power consumption. The new Ottocanali DSP+D versions feature signal processing and support two redundant Dante digital streams. All versions in the series feature switchable main and aux signal inputs per channel, adequate GPI/O, alarms, Lo-Z and Hi-Z output connections as well as mono-bridgeable channel pairs.

Introducing an ‘easy install’ in-wall speaker MERIDIAN AUDIO The DSP320 in-wall/in-ceiling architectural loudspeaker has been launched for installers working on whole home, cinema, ‘superyacht’ and single media room projects. Housed within the 300mm square and 100mm deep enclosure are digital audio converters and two integral 80W class amplifiers for wide-range and bass drivers. On-board digital signal processing offers thermal and dynamic bass protection with accurate transients, according to the company. Other benefits include enhanced bass alignment (EBA) for music playback and dynamic volume compensation at low listening levels. Meridian says its DSP approach makes the DSP320 capable of predictable and repeatable performance for a wide variety of in-wall and in-ceiling applications. It also eliminates the need for any

On-board digital signal processing offers many benefits for the DSP320 amplification within the equipment rack. Meridian claims the DSP320 delivers superior performance over conventional designs – equivalent to an enclosure eight times the physical volume. The DSP features a special ‘Left and Right’ mode, selected via a switch on the front panel. This mode combines the left and right stereo signals and outputs them from the one speaker, eliminating the

cancellation effects and increased harmonic distortion typical with passive single stereo speakers. Meridian says the DSP320 has been introduced specifically to deliver maximum dispersion over a wide listening area, with minimum unwanted diffraction thanks to careful baffle and grille design. The installation can be flush-mounted or completed with an optional bezel to hold the magnetically attached, paintable grille. All the elements of the DSP320 allow room for on-site adjustment, except when flushmounted. The DSP320 can be integrated into systems with Meridian’s free-standing DSP loudspeakers to create a complete system. It can be wired with Meridian’s Speakerlink or equivalent Cat6 cable, enabling long cable runs and click and play connectivity without any loss of sound quality or the need for any additional speaker cable or wiring.

CLOUD ELECTRONICS The MPA-120 and MPA-240 MixerAmplifier line has been refreshed and is being exhibited for the first time at ISE 2016. The newest models of the MPASeries build upon the success of the original MPA (launched in 2008) and provide output of 120W and 240W respectively at low impedance, 100V, 70V and 25V. The newest MPA models provide a new balanced auxiliary output, a new utility and music-on hold output, both with mic/line level controls. This is in addition to the range’s existing features, which include six line inputs, four microphone inputs with VOX

priority over music signals, remote music mute triggered via a NO or NC contact and compatibility with Bose, Amina and Active Audio EQ cards. In addition, MIC 1 input can be configured as a transformer isolated telephone input for telepaging applications. The new MPAs are backwardly compatible with all Cloud RL-1 and RSL-6 remote wall panels, which Cloud Electronics say will avoid any technical issues for contractors or installers putting the new units into legacy venues. In addition to the new MPASeries, a new MK4 Series of the Z4/ Z8 Venue Zone Mixer is also showing at ISE 2016 for the first time.

Automatic mixing to catch the chat DAN DUGAN SOUND DESIGN Aimed at managing live microphones in unscripted talking situations, two new automatic microphone mixers, the Dugan Model M and Dugan Model N, and the Dugan Model K control surface, are being shown by Dan Dugan Sound Design. Models M and N are designed to work in conjunction with standard audio mixing consoles. Model M has MADI I/O, both optical and copper, and the Model N has Dante I/O, primary and secondary. Both provide 32 channels of Dugan automixing at 96kHz or 64 channels at 48kHz and are PoE capable. The Dugan Speech System, Music System and Gain Limiting are all

Dugan Models M and N are designed to work in conjunction with standard audio mixing consoles supported. In addition, the M and N include a scene memory that can record and recall all operating settings, either globally or by unit, in a library of named scenes. Dugan says its technologies provide the best possible mix of live microphones, providing fast, transparent cross-fades without upcutting, choppy sound or shifts in background noise, and providing smooth and consistent transitions between talkers no matter how many mics are open.

SMART BUILDING

TECHNOLOGIES AND VIEWPOINTS FROM THE CONNECTED BUILDINGS SECTOR

OVERVIEW: Energy saving technology Smart buildings can collect and manage highly detailed data to optimise comfort and cut energy costs. Steve Montgomery highlights some relevant offerings of ISE 2016 exhibitors Buildings are becoming smarter. Building management systems are now being widely installed to improve a building’s internal environment for the comfort of occupants and optimise services to make it more energy-efficient. According to recent ABI Research, more than 8 million new building management systems will be integrated around the world within the next four years. Buildings now contain hundreds, if not thousands, of individual sensors that continuously detect, measure and monitor parameters. From detecting the presence of people, tracking their movements through door entry systems, measuring internal and external temperature and lighting conditions through to recording the stresses and loads on heating fans and cooling compressors. All this data can be combined to enable continuous adjustment of services in real time, maximise comfort levels and minimise energy consumption. Crestron’s Fusion offers this functionality, as Robin van Meeuwen, CEO Crestron EMEA, explains: “Crestron Fusion empowers IT and facilities managers to optimise investments in infrastructure and real estate around the world. Operators can monitor, measure, manage, and control lighting,

Thinknx can be used in residential, commercial or industrial buildings HVAC systems, and energy usage in every room and area. Building technology automation saves energy and improves productivity by intelligently integrating with building management systems and utilising alternative energy sources to make smart buildings even more energy efficient.” Lutron’s Quantum Vue facility management software provides a browser-based graphical view, showing energy usage reports.

Elsner’s sensors include the capability to measure and monitor extended ambient conditions. Toni Grossmann, CEO and sales manager, comments: “The Sewi KNX sensor registers the presence of persons and ambient brightness, as well as room conditions – temperature, humidity and CO2 content. Thus it allows the energy optimised control of light as well as the precise control

of the ambient climate by ventilation, heating and cooling.” Controllers for individualised airing and heating are included in the device software and can be easily set in the KNX system. The Thinknx supervision system provides automation and control of residential, commercial and industrial buildings. CEO Luca Formentini explains: “A fundamental characteristic of the Thinknx system is the high level of customisation of graphical interface and logic, which raises the level of control automation in the plant to reduce energy costs, limit environmental impact and improve building security and safety. It can be integrated with building services to provide complete solutions, including the AV matrix, security systems, entry and others, allowing it to control the whole building for maximum efficiency.”

Fast turn speaker transformers AMINA TECHNOLOGIES Responding to what the company sees as the increasingly rapid turnaround required in projects such as retail refitting, invisible loudspeaker manufacturer Amina Technologies has announced what it describes as a high quality multitapped toroidal transformer with a novel vibration-free multiple line connector system. Products are now made in volume and kept in stock, the company says, and integrators now have access to products for overnight delivery. An integrator, says Amina, simply connects his high voltage line to whatever power tapping is required, before the product is permanently sealed into the wall or ceiling cavity ready for plastering. Five tappings are available on the 100V product, ranging from 5W to 40W. Amina’s loudspeakers are installed in walls and ceilings prior to being plastered over with a full skim coat of conventional finishing

plaster, rendering the devices fully invisible. Once dry, the wall or ceiling surface is painted or wallpapered, meaning that the design aesthetic is never compromised. In addition to plastered surfaces, the products can also be built in to structures finished with timber veneers, acrylics, high pressure laminates and leather, making this the most flexible, designfriendly sound source on the market, Amina claims. The company’s range of LFi loudspeakers are specified for use in commercial premises requiring high performance audio reproduction where interior design detail and style are paramount. Invisible sound solutions are proving popular in designer label stores, the company says, and are also finding favour with other high-end retail environments, spa facilities, hotel lobbies, educational establishments, clean room spaces such as hospitals, and exclusive restaurants.

SSI projector gets brightness upgrade CASIO Expanding its line-up of Core lamp-free projectors, Casio is demonstrating its new XJ-V2 3,000-lumen unit. The company notes that it is unusually affordable for a projector featuring solid state illumination, and represents a brightness step-up from its predecessor, the 2,700-lumen XJ-V1. Casio developed a lamp-free projector as a pioneer in the industry in 2010, and now claims an 87.4% share of the world market for hybrid light source projectors. With this expansion of the Core line-up, the company says it is aggressively working to accelerate the shift towards lamp-free projectors in the marketplace, reducing the environmental impact of projectors by discontinuing the use of mercury and

cutting down on power consumption and helping to reduce CO2 emissions. The dust resistance of the XJ-V2 has been improved by structuring the internal components into three blocks to shield the optical block from dust, helping to ensure that dust does not lower projection brightness.

Based on single chip DLP technology, contrast ratio of the XJ-V2 is quoted as 20,000:1. Native resolution is XGA, but the projector can handle sources up to HD. Available inputs include RGB 15-pin mini D-Sub and HDMI with HDCP and audio support.

The new E-Vision 8500 Laser projector beneďŹ ts from low cost of ownership

DIGITAL PROJECTION The new E-Vision 8500 Laser projector follows on from the 3-chip DLP technology, laser-based HIGHLite Laser. The new platform uses single chip DLP technology to deliver 8,000 lumens at a resolution of 1920 x 1200. The projector beneďŹ ts from a 20,000-hour solid state illumination source and what the company describes as â€˜ďŹ t and forget’, meaning that it needs only minimal maintenance throughout the lifetime of the display. The E-Vision 8500 Laser bypasses regular lamp replacement cycles, with almost all costs incurred at the time of purchase. This key characteristic, says the company, results in a much lower cost of ownership over the lifespan of the display. Suited to a diverse range of professional venues, the projector supports image edge blending as standard, along with geometric warp correction. HDBaseT, DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI provide the necessary connectivity. The projector can also utilise Digital Projection’s new ultra short throw (0.38:1) lens, making it appropriate for vertical markets such as visitor attractions and museums. The new UST lens – which is capable of creating an image width between 2.1m and 7.5m to offer exibility of projector positioning – is also supported by the majority of the other E-Vision projectors in the range.

The Gefen EXT-UHD-88 Matrix routes eight DCI or Ultra HD sources to any combination of up to eight 4K displays. This matrix is compliant with the latest HDCP 2.2 protocol as well as HDCP 1.4. Of course it leverages Gefen Syner-G™ software with Discovery and Show-Me features to simplify installations.

Juno Connect links tech to teachers FRONTROW CALYPSO Juno Connect lets teachers use voice commands to control classroom technology. The system allows instructors to manage technology such as projectors and other devices, record and post screen capture videos, and initiate and answer intercom calls, with speech. This all-in-one solution is networked, and rethinks paging infrastructure by focusing on the user experience. Users wear a wireless microphone, used primarily for classroom voice reinforcement, but also for system commands. For example, the teacher can press a button on the mic and say

“power up” to turn on a device. Similarly, voice commands can be used to switch video inputs or to start recording lesson content. The teacher can also open a two-way audio channel with the school’s front office using the command “intercom”. Because the solution is connected to both classroom devices and the network, it gives technologists a single remote interface through which to see, monitor and schedule hundreds of devices across a campus. “Instead of teachers chasing their technology around, technology now responds to teachers,” said Sean Penn, FrontRow’s director of product management.

UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS EXHIBITOR NEWS AND PERSPECTIVES FROM AROUND THE SHOW

Sound experts win award for quiet Affordable enterprise VC LOGITECH

PLANTRONICS In addition to presenting its range of corded and wireless unified communications, Platronics is using ISE 2016 to discuss the award-winning acoustics of its new headquarters, the Soundscape Building in Hoofddorp, near Amsterdam. Opening in 2016, the building has been awarded The John Connell Soundscape Award by the Noise Abatement Society (NAS), a UK charity whose remit is to raise awareness about noise pollution. Its internationally respected work helps to relieve the physical and mental distress caused by excessive noise, which profoundly affects health, learning, productivity and social cohesion. The new headquarters were conceived by architect William McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart as part of their Park 20/20 development. It features internal and external designed acoustic zones, to encourage inspired living and working, thereby increasing productivity and wellbeing. “We are thrilled to have been

Philip Vanhoutte, Plantronics SVP and E&A managing director

awarded the John Connell Award and have our new Soundscape headquarters recognised as a building for companies to strive towards,” commented Philip Vanhoutte, Plantronics SVP and E&A managing director. “We pride ourselves on our deep understanding of how sound can affect our working environment and how to eliminate distracting background noise, celebrate the voice and allow everyone to work in a healthy, productive and profitable way.” The John Connell Awards are named after the NAS’ founder, who lobbied the Noise Abatement Act through the UK Parliament in 1960

when noise became a statutory nuisance in the UK for the first time. These annual awards, known as the ‘Noise Oscars’, are now in their 14th year, and acknowledge the importance of the quality of sound in everyday life, and champion vital advances in reducing the negative impact of unnecessary noise for the public benefit. “NAS congratulates Plantronics for its total commitment and understanding of the value of Soundscape principles within its new Hoofddorp building to enhance the living and working aural environment,” commented Lisa Lavia, managing director at NAS.

Videoconferencing has become increasingly accessible, democratising the application for all. Logitech’s latest product innovation, the Logitech Group, also fits into the open category, and comes with a PTZ camera, speakerphone, and remote control. The solution works with a large range of videoconferencing applications that employees will already be using. The Logitech Group hardware is compatible with most UC platforms, so employees can connect easily. Anne Marie Ginn, senior category manager, video collaboration at Logitech, commented: “According to recent reports, there are over 55 million meeting or conference rooms worldwide, of which 24 million, or 40%, are medium sized conference rooms. Companies across every industry are seeing the demand for ‘huddle’ rooms explode; smaller dedicated collaboration spaces where employees can meet and collaborate with local and remote

team workers ‘on-the-fly.’ “Enterprises want to have seamless communication experiences with their employees, customers, suppliers and partners. Logitech’s videoconferencing line is here at ISE, to introduce customers to products that will help them to respond to some of these challenges,” Ginn noted. Logitech Group is an easy to use video conferencing solution, aimed at mid to large sized enterprises. It is suitable for video calls with up to 14 people or up to 20 people with optional expansion microphones. These microphones will be available as an add-on option to the Group conferencing solution at €299 and will enable participants to be heard within a 6m diameter, where people will be able to be heard so clearly no matter where they sit in the room, Logitech says. Logitech Group delivers HD 1080p video and has a 10x lossless HD zoom, which means that presenters can zero in on close-ups of objects and whiteboard content with detail and clarity.

Videoconference cam Span WM210i ideation system showcased connects over USB Stand: 9-B145

ANGEKIS TECHNOLOGY NUREVA The Span ideation system, showcased on the Nureva stand, uses a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model to bring the proven process of paper-based ideation into the digital age. The cloud-based software satisfies today’s need for instant, anytime access to projects. Teams easily create shared digital canvases to populate with ideas as they’re used to doing on a wall. Familiar, flexible ideation tools (digital stickies, images, sketches, and so on) are used to make collaboration, sharing and iteration easy and intuitive. The WM210i model creates an ideation environment well suited to smaller collaboration teams (two to four people) undertaking more focused ideation work. The system’s panoramic projector transforms any 3.1m wall into an expansive, interactive workspace where team members can simultaneously work on the canvas via touch or device. Remote team members can add notes and other content, making them immediately available to inroom colleagues in real time.

ISE 2016 marks the introduction of the Angekis brand to Europe, as well as the launch of what the company says is a ‘worldfirst’ product. Angekis is presenting the Saber, which it claims is the first direct connect USB 3.0 HD PTZ videoconference camera with a desktop app control.

Saber is designed to be simple enough for anyone to set up and use across major videoconferencing software solutions without specialist IT skills. Boasting full HD at 60fps uncompressed, the Saber delivers a video quality that, says Angekis, rivals systems that are triple the price.

Stand: 9-B148

The Span WM210i brings the proven process of paper-based ideation into the digital age The WM210i is particularly ideal for team workspaces, huddle rooms and untapped areas where space is at a premium, says Nureva. Nancy Knowlton, CEO at Nureva, commented: “The Span ideation system enables teams to make the transition from paper-based ideation to a dynamic, digital environment, something that we think can speed up the pace of the fuzzy front end of innovation and creation. We have retained the familiarity, simplicity

and flexibility of sticky notes and flip charts and taken ideation to the next level in a fully digital environment.” The system launched in June at InfoComm 2015, in Orlando, Florida, where it was named Best New Product – Visual Collaboration & Ideation in the Best of Show Awards given by Telepresence Options (TPO); and Best Overall Product in the Best of InfoComm Awards from rAVe Publications.

The Importance of Remote Management Integrating Natural and Artificial Light

Speaker: Justin Martin-Lawrence, Habitech

Speaker: Sam Woodward, Lutron This course will explore the requirements and options for remote management of IP. Our ability to support and maintain security, control and media delivery in the connected home through remote network-based systems, port forwarding routes and VPNs, relies on the bandwidth available from service providers. Increasingly this is insufficient for proper diagnosis and resolution. Furthermore, the slow migration to IPV6 by ISPs has led to the introduction of CGN (Carrier Grade NAT)/NAT444, which ‘breaks’ the whole concept of inbound port forwarding and VPNs. We need a better answer.

11:30-13:00

The light in our homes and offices comes from both artificial and natural sources. This course examines how to control both at once, so that window treatments and dimmers work in harmony to optimise user comfort, convenience and energy conservation. The intelligent integration of automatic window treatments and artificial lighting control is essential. Attendees will gain a practical overview of techniques, and real-world do’s-and-don’ts when designing a system.

Simplifying Control – How Not to Annoy the Users Speaker: Sam Woodward, Lutron The technology available for our homes continues to advance. Systems may be ever-more complex on the inside, yet it remains essential that that should be simple to use from the outside. End users must not become confused and frustrated by their experiences in interacting with technology. Controls have historically had a reputation for being hard to use. This need not be the case! This course examines user-interface design and the specification of sensor systems. It provides practical considerations for user-friendly installations, and examines a variety of generic solutions from switches to screens.

How to Work Profitably with Developers Speaker: Adrian Ickeringill, Wyrestorm This course will cover the opportunities and pitfalls of selling into multi-dwelling developments, and working with house builders and understanding the requirements for the inclusion of home automation in new build developments. From build schedules and building regulations, to sales and marketing, this course will aim to guide you in the right direction to make a success of this market.

InfoComm MasterClass: AV/IT Security Needs Analysis

Stand 12-N100

Speaker: Paul Zielie, CTS-D, CTS-I, Manager of Enterprise Solutions, Harman Professional

Explore the Floor Traditionally, audiovisual and presentation technologies have been isolated from the enterprise IT network. With the rise of unified communications, cloud applications and enterprise management, and as AV technology reaches further into the organisation, AV installations can no longer be isolated from the enterprise network. As AV systems are being migrated onto enterprise data networks, user organisations expect the AV system to maintain a security posture in alignment with their security goals. In many cases these requirements may be more than a case of business best practices, but may be a matter of regulatory compliance. Security governance typically requires that any device attached to the network has the relevant security features and configuration. With this presentation, a detailed whitepaper and templates are provided (via download) to allow the students to adopt the provided analysis framework into their own business practices.

Speaker: L. William (Bill) Nattress III, CTS-D, CTS-I, Director of Channel Strategy - Paging, Biamp Systems With over 1,000 exhibitors occupying 14 halls, the show floor can be overwhelming.

William (Bill) Nattress III, CTS-D, CTS-I, Director of Channel Strategy Paging, Biamp Systems Florian Rotberg, Managing Director, Invidis Consulting Bob Snyder, Editor-in-Chief, rAVe Europe If you’ve been to an AV industry conference, you’ve probably heard technologists opine about the future. And that’s good; it’s important to keep an eye on the trends that will affect your business. But how often do you hear experts affirm their predictions, adjust for change, or just plain second-guess themselves? At Integrated Systems Europe 2016, our prognosticators will do just that. Building on last year’s popular Future Trends session at ISE, join InfoComm International and industry professionals as they re-evaluate year-old predictions and offer a fresh take on the technologies that will drive change in the years to come. Among the questions they’ll attempt to answer: • Is there an ‘estimated time of impact’ for the Internet of Things in pro AV? • Now that all displays are 4K, can we focus on 8K? What, they’re not yet? • What do tomorrow’s collaboration spaces look like today? • Will the cloud really take over the AV industry? • If you don’t understand IPv6 and 5G wireless, is it too late?

Equinox version 2 demonstrated VANTAGE Equinox version 2, recently released by lighting and comfort control systems developer Vantage, is being demonstrated during ISE 2016. The release of Equinox version 2 follows Vantage’s expanding line of in-wall LCD keypads (Equinox 40 and 41), touchscreens (Equinox 73) and apps (iPad, android) that the company claims offer the ultimate user experience and control interface in luxury spaces. Updates to lighting, climate and video applications provide an enhanced user experience, says

Vantage, while changes to the drag and drop programming software Design Center 3.5 enables dealers and installers to make system updates in less time and get off the job more quickly than ever before. Vantage’s Equinox family of products is said to provide a simple yet customisable interface that, when linked to its InFusion system, delivers the means to efficiently create flexible, personalised spaces with a subtle aesthetic. According to Vantage, the improvements it has made to the Equinox touchscreens and

keypads are dramatic. Screens are said to be brighter and more vibrant, with iPad-like performance that elevates the user experience. With Equinox version 2, Vantage promises a vastly improved user experience, with brighter, crisper graphics and faster load times, while dealers benefit from quicker firmware updates and configuration load times. Equinox version 2 provides users with graphical consistency between Equinox 73, Equinox 40, Equinox 41, as well as a 50% increase in brightness and better contrast, the company says. Equinox version 2 provides refreshed widgets for lighting, climate control and video. Changes to the lighting widget allow dealers to create a differentiated lighting experience for users. The updated climate widget includes fan speed and a new overview page, while the new video widget enables users to rearrange channel favourites to their Equinox now delivers an improved preference. user experience, says Vantage Stand: 1-M2

Mirror and transparent screens PRO DISPLAY Adding multi-touch interactivity to HD and 4K mirrored screens delivers a uniquely engaging display solution, according to exhibitor Pro Display. The company’s intouch Interactive Mirrorvision display can be custom made for integration into walls or partitions, or teamed with a picture frame to create a focal point for retail and hospitality environments. Also on show on the company’s ISE 2016 stand are transparent LCD screens that Pro Display believes offer a whole new world of creative opportunities for promotional display. With both LCD and OLED versions available, the company claims that they make hugely engaging retail windows, interactive booths, display cases, games, vending machines, drinks coolers and more. They can also be teamed with touch foils or infrared frames to add interactivity to the mix. Pro Display is also highlighting its anti-glare overlay and self-adhesive anti-glare film for displays in brightly lit environments. Pro Display says that its anti-glare solution diffuses incident light, softens harsh lights

Multi-touch interactivity can be added to HD and 4K mirrored screens and minimises reflections, while the hardwearing surface protects the screen as well as significantly enhancing touch feel by reducing friction on the glass, giving a super smooth interface. The company’s Digital Glass extra-large-format ultra-short throw rear projection optical screen is also on show. Digital Glass is now available as a single, seamless rigid screen up to 8m by 3m, giving installers and integrators an extralarge-format screen solution for auditoriums, events and exhibitions, retail advertising and digital signage. Designed specifically for ultra-short throw projectors and edge-blended installations, it can also be combined with Pro Display’s infrared multi-touch frames to create extra-largeformat interactive displays.

TLX Series showcased First OMNEO-based keypanels RTS

TLX extender modules can receive both HDMI and DisplayPort cables on the same extender

THINKLOGICAL TLX Series matrix switches and extenders are being demonstrated at ISE 2016 by Thinklogical. TLX is, says the company, the first KVM solution available in the market that can extend and switch computer peripherals and uncompressed 4K video at full 4096 x 2160 resolution and 4:4:4 colour depth at 60Hz using only two CatX cables or three fibres. TLX offers customers 10Gbps performance and a flexible and efficient hybrid architecture supporting both fibre optic and CatX cabling, reducing the cost and infrastructure required to manage content created in the 4K standard without compromising quality or performance. The Thinklogical booth at ISE is showcasing live demonstrations of TLX KVM and 4K@60Hz video signal management, matrix switching,

and DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4 extenders. The company offers an innovative connector on its TLX extenders that can receive both HDMI and DisplayPort cables on the same extender, reducing the number of extenders needed, and eliminating the requirement for an external adapter or dongle to convert from DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI. “With TLX, Thinklogical continues to lead the market with professionalgrade, uncompressed signal management products at prices competitive with lower-quality, compressed KVM alternatives,” said Joe Pajer, president and CEO at Thinklogical. “TLX addresses the customer demand for a comprehensive and efficient 4K platform that delivers the highest possible performance with the least amount of cable infrastructure.”

A part of the Bosch Group since 2006, intercom solution provider RTS is presenting the first keypanels with Bosch OMNEO IP technology on board. The KP-Series keypanels combine HD colour displays, improved single key operation and offer full compatibility with all existing RTS matrices. KP-Series keypanels are suitable for a wide range of intercom product customers such as broadcast production studios, theatre and sport venues, houses of worship, and

outside broadcast vans. The three models in RTS’ new KPSeries family include the KP-5032 tworack unit keypanel with 32 operation keys, the KP-4016 one-rack unit keypanel with 16 operation keys and the EKP-4016 one-rack unit extension panel with 16 operation keys. The series is backwards compatible with existing RTS analogue matrices and forward compatible with OMNEO open IP architecture using the Dante transmission protocol.

Each keypanel features a fullcolour HD display offering strong colour, contrast, resolution and viewing angle. They are capable of displaying Latin, Cyrillic and simplified Chinese characters. Single hand operation by ergonomically designed four-way levers provides talk/listen and volume control. The KP-Series of panels now offers as standard a full range of external connections for GP-I/O and ancillary audio functions, which were previously optional. Sound quality is provided with design assistance from the EV speaker engineering R&D group.

VIO 4K has ‘perfect symmetry’

Assistive technologies and systems STEP-HEAR

ANALOG WAY The VIO 4K is a new multi-format converter from Analog Way. Natively equipped with seven inputs, the VIO 4K enables the conversion of a multitude of signals including: Dual-Link DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI, 6G-SDI, optical and universal analogue, into an array of output signal formats up to 4K 30Hz 4:4:4. Thanks to what the company describes as the perfect symmetry between input and output plugs (anything in, anything out), the VIO 4K ensures high-end cross-conversion. The VIO 4K also offers management of digital and analogue audio signals. Designed and built to provide optimum versatility, the VIO 4K includes two slots for optional cards for video processing that can handle formats up to 4K 60Hz 4:4:4, and another slot for an optional audio card with XLR plugs. With all options, the VIO 4K features nine inputs and three outputs. Any card added is independent and has its

Specialising in what it describes as practical and affordable assistive technologies and systems that allow people with special needs to achieve newfound independence and convenience, ďŹ rst-time ISE exhibitor Step-Hear is presenting two solutions at the show. Step-Hear is described as a simple to use orientation, information and audio messaging system for blind and visually impaired people. When a blind or visually impaired person is walking within range of the Step-Hear base unit, the activator he/she is carrying will start to vibrate and beep. Pressing the button on the activator will trigger the Step-Hear base unit to play an audio message, guiding the blind or visually impaired person to the desired destination. Step-Hear can be integrated with a range of applications such as ATM machines and information

Analog Way says that the VIO 4K is adapted for non-standard signal management, notably for LED walls. Its dual/tri output mode enables association of a single source to three outputs and to independently modify formats, aspect ratio, the area of interest (AOI) and so on. A rotation feature allows output rotation for

portrait vs. landscape displays at 0°, 90°, 180° and 270° per output. The advanced management of the AOI as well as unlimited layer resizing capabilities allows precise sizing of a source to ďŹ t odd resolution displays. The VIO 4K can be controlled directly from the front panel, thanks to a large 3.5in TFT colour screen offering live visualisation of sources.

Call-Hear is a ‘call for help’ system that will alert a business when a customer needs assistance or service. It can, for example, be deployed in a washroom, offering immediate help in emergency and safety situations. By pressing the button on the Call-Hear sign, the chiming unit will begin to ash and beep, providing an alert that someone is in need of help. Call-Hear is intended to provide businesses, facilities and organisations with an affordable access solution, enabling customers to easily enter their premises.

Launch of new X Series products RGBLINK Following on from a successful 2015, when RGBlink released its Venus Series X1 scaler/switcher along with the X2 universal router and scaler, the company is debuting several new products at ISE 2016. The latest additions to the X Series are three new products, each aimed at meeting the needs of speciďŹ c market segments. X1pro brings 4K input and output to an everyday switcher/

scaler. Built on the X1 platform, X1pro features 4K input on DisplayPort and HDMI as standard with distribution across dual 2K outputs, as well as extendibility to 4K output. X1 option modules can also be ďŹ tted to X1pro for further exibility. The second product, X3 Live, fully integrates advanced multilayer scaling and routing with control. Dual 8in monitors allow on-board monitoring of sources, preview and programme.

Customised signage for retail POSTERDIGITAL The customisation of digital signage software for speciďŹ c markets through the use of plug-ins is on show at newcomer PosterDigital’s stand. Among these solutions is Overy. Primarily built for retail and customised for each client, Overy is compatible with the PosterDigital CMS and the SoC technologies from Samsung and LG for easy installation.

Stand: 11-C58

It has a pressure sensor that sends a signal to the screen every time a customer picks up a product from the slot in which it is supported. The user is presented on screen with information relating to the product they have lifted in a variety of formats such as video and images. On the PosterDigital stand, visitors can see the level of customisation provided by the company’s plug-ins.

The X1pro brings 4K input and output to an everyday switcher/scaler

The third product introduced is X7, a 32 x 32 input/output router and matrix scaler for larger applications. X7 is fully modular with optional redundant power supply. The high level modularity allows signal selection for input and output to be tailored with ease to an application, while supporting ease of maintenance, and indeed, changing requirements. RGBLink is also featuring hands-on demonstrations of the VSP628pro presentation switcher/ scaler to show off the recently announced dual channel SDI output option, along with the 4K input module option.

Kern: “Working with us should be fun”

KERN & STELLY Rather than show products, Kern & Stelly has taken a novel approach to exhibiting at ISE. A distributor headquartered in Germany and part of the UK’s Midwich group of companies, the company has decided that its stand’s motto will be “100% welcome”, and that it will provide an opportunity for visitors to relax and talk. The Kern & Stelly stand is not an entirely product-free zone, however, as it is updating visitors on the latest developments and highlights in its range of large format displays, projectors, visualisers and signal management. For guests wanting to touch and feel real products, the company says it is more than happy to escort them to the stands of the vendors with whom it works, who include Atlona, Brightsign, Barco, Chief, Elmo, Epson, Hitachi, Samsung and Sharp. “Since our foundation in 2004, we´ve been growing,” said Lutz Kern, general manager. ”In 2014, we reached a turnover of €54 million, and we expect to have increased sales in 2015 by 10%. With this outcome, we are one of the biggest AV distributors in Germany. The distribution policy of Kern & Stelly is fully focused on specialised dealers, and we are totally committed to the individual and personal support of our customers. Working with Kern & Stelly should be fun. We consider ourselves as partners who work at eye level with our dealers and vendors.”

Green German amplifiers with growing DSP library HOELLSTERN Energy-efficient amplifiers are being showcased, together with ProAudio Technology speakers, in Hall 7 by Hoellstern, and in a special demo for the show by Amsterdam-based distributor Auvilight Rental Concept. The range includes both 2-channel and 4-channel amplifiers, with output power ranging from 850W to 16,000W (bridged). The amplifiers are housed in a 19in, 2RU casing, with weight ranging from 10kg to 12kg. Hoellstern claims its sophisticated iCVP technology offers highly efficient power supply and amplifier technology, which can half power

consumption with 10A or 16A of average current draw. This enables ‘enormous’ output power values, claims the German manufacturer. The amplifiers are designed and manufactured in the south of Germany. The internal Hoellstern DSP controller is an independent DSP platform which offers an innovative, comprehensive solution for most loudspeaker systems in the pro sound industry. Currently this features more than 25 loudspeaker manufacturers with more than 430 loudspeaker blocks. The DSP library offers FIR filter and system-specific settings, as well as free user settings. The library keeps growing, based

on user requirements. An up-to-date table of the available setups, sorted by manufacturers, can be found on the company website. Also available is the company’s Konfigurator2, a software package for the configuration and management of amplifiers with built-in DSP. Konfigurator2 can be run under Windows and Mac OS and communicates with upgradeable Konfigurator2 firmware on the amps. The ProAudio kit on show with the Hoellstern amps includes the VT20 Vertical-Array, the HT16 Tourist system, the M20 Monitorset, and the M10 Monitorset.

DS system is intuitive NÜ SIGNAGE First time exhibitor Nü Signage is taking the opportunity presented by ISE to showcase its Nü Live digital signage offering. Described by the company as being uniquely easy, flexible and collaborative to work with, Nü Signage claims that users can get started in less than 30 minutes, creating content and displaying it with just a few clicks. Templates and sample content are supplied which can, says the company, be easily customised. Content can be deployed to single screens, groups of screens or the entire network as desired, with updates managed by the Nü Live platform, and the status

of each screen can be remotely monitored via a web interface. Centred on the company’s low energy Nü Box media player, Nü Live has added ‘triggers’ to its capability, allowing customers to cause specific content to be displayed depending on the time of day, the weather or some other factor, ensuring the relevance of messaging in terms of time and place. A single display can be subdivided into individual screens, with content unique to specific topics displayed in each. Users of Nü Live include French supermarket chain E. Leclerc, Cartier and Mairie de Paris.

WallOps and Perception PRO World’s first AoIP hit international market studio monitor VVS Launched five years ago with the goal of developing game-changing solutions that would meet the requirements of mission-critical environments, collaborative visualisation, digital signal management and complex display management, Israel-based VVS is now launching internationally here at ISE 2016. With a dedicated developer team plus parent company Aran Electronics’ 47 years of AV experience, VVS is introducing its systems globally. Gal Olevson, head of VVS’ marketing and business development, commented: “Now it is time to introduce our solution to

the rest of the world. Many clients don’t really understand just how flexible this system is. When you run places like elite operations such as the Israeli airforce where everything runs precisely, to GetTaxi that wants digital signage, our system can do it all. This is cost efficient, easy to integrate and install, scalable, flexible and includes hardware and software.” One feature the VS system offers is the ability for multiple users to operate their own piece of ‘display real estate’ on a videowall, over which they have complete control without their use having any impact on other users of the same display. This means, stated Olevson, that, “you can always control information,

never missing or losing any of it”. At the centre of VVS’ solution is Perception PRO, its advanced content and display management software, which was developed with feedback from high end customers from such diverse sectors as military control centres, government facilities, telecom centres, and broadcasting studios. The VVS solution includes WallOps, a series of powerful display controllers with many customisable features, flexible I/O formats and superior video processing abilities. At ISE VVS is looking to meet the right distributors, integrators and AV consultants who will carry the company’s solution worldwide.

Mass shipping of Surface Hub rival begins DISPLAYTEN Set to rival Microsoft’s Surface Hub on both technology and price point, the 70in DTEN70 display equipped with DisplayTen Wireless Technology is available for mass shipping, DisplayTen announced today. Exhibiting the DTEN70 model, the display features a 70in screen made from Samsung Grade A glass, and features completely wireless connections, a simple, software-free setup and connections with virtually any device that has a USB port. Wei Liu, founder and CEO at DisplayTen, commented: “Microsoft Surface Hub has been announced several times but it

is still not available. The DTEN70 is available; it is an open and flexible system, and it offers more features than Microsoft Surface Hub, as well as being significantly more affordable.” The device is Android-based yet is compatible with Apple, Microsoft and all web- and PC-based software, and can be operated independently, or from a laptop or mobile device. Users can write easily on the screen with their finger, draw around it to select and move that note, as well as generate QR codes to enable the user to take screen content with them on their mobile device. With two-way control, the display is able to mirror mobile device content as well as that

from laptops and PCs using the DisplayTen DTenShare, which plugs into a USB port and enables the simple sharing of content from any device to the screen. This makes wireless sharing possible in seconds in meeting and huddle rooms, as well as classrooms. Liu added: “Some people limit what you can use with their devices, making you use their software. We have decided to be as open and as flexible as possible, which is a business decision but also a vision. No one should be limited to a closed ecosystem, which is why we chose Android and which is why we are different from other companies.”

Designed to support the latest professional and home cinema grade projectors and capable of supporting a weight of up to 25kg and measuring up to 510mm x 510mm, ScreenInt is highlighting its new SI-H 40 HC motorised projector lift. Despite its capability, the lift can be retracted into a false ceiling of only 13cm in depth, making it, says the company, both a practical and aesthetic choice. It is supplied with a motor manufactured in Italy which ScreenInt says is virtually silent in operation, and it allows a total descent of up to 53cm. It operates from a 1220-230V supply and has a maximum power consumption of 184W. Torque is 20Nm, and totation is 17rpm. The lift also comes with extendable side brackets in order to allow easy fixing of the panel

using adjustable threaded bars. The SI-H 40 HC, which weighs 11kg, is also equipped with safety screws to prevent it extending beyond the preset end stop.

Making its debut at ISE 2016 and said to be the world’s first commercially ready AoIP (audio over internet protocol) studio monitor is the 8430 from Genelec. The 8430’s connectivity includes the use of an AES67 signal via the XLR-housed RJ45 connector, and a standard analogue signal via a balanced XLR connector. As part of the Genelec SAM Series, the 8430 shares identical electro-acoustic features such as Genelec MDE and DCW technologies, a flow-optimised reflex port and what the company says is very low distortion, high SPL and wide uncoloured response in a very compact unit. Also, as member of the SAM Series, the 8430 uses the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager control network and software which allows adjustments of all aspects of monitor settings and full system control. As a central part of GLM, Genelec AutoCal automatically ensures every monitor

on the network is aligned for level, timing, as well as compensation of room response anomalies. “At Genelec we believe that audio-over-IP networking, using systems fully compatible with open and global standards, is the right, reliable and robust way to address the future needs of the audio market. By launching the 8430 we are a significant step closer to this reality,” said Siamäk Naghian, managing director of Genelec. “With the technological progress that has been made in the field and the serious involvements with AoIP by broadcasters and other customers, we feel there is potential for a wellengineered monitor to provide both convenience and high performance benefits that IP networks can deliver. We think that the 8430 is exactly that monitor and I anticipate an enthusiastic reception of the product amongst the audio community. Audio over IP is no longer the future of monitoring; it is here now.”

MircoN comes to town RIEDEL MicroN, an 80G media distribution network device for Riedel’s MediorNet line of media transport and management solutions, is being introduced to the AV and install industry. Launched in April last year, MicroN is available as a fully networked MediorNet device, as well as in a point-to-point edition at a competitive price point; it can simply work with a MetroN router, with other MicroN units, or in a standalone point-to-point configuration to provide an economical solution for the AV and install industries. Commented Riedel head of marketing, Christian Bockskopf: “Since the launch of MicroN people have realised they can use it for AV applications as well, and we have several large installs already including conference centres,

stadiums and cruise ships. Even though we’re not well known in this industry, we want to position ourselves as a player in this install market. This is another channel for our existing products.” Meanwhile, for the largest media networks built on Riedel’s MediorNet transport devices, MicroN can serve as a breakout box for a MetroN router and extend connectivity beyond the fibre I/Os to any type of video and audio I/O required. Working seamlessly with Riedel’s MediorNet MetroN core fibre router, MicroN is a high density signal interface with a complete array of audio, video, and data inputs and outputs, including 24 SD/HD/3G-SDI I/Os, two MADI optical digital audio ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two sync reference I/Os, and eight 10G SFP+ high speed ports.
