If you missed this at ISE 2014, Vivitek unveiled three of its next generation large venue projectors. The DX6831 has XGA resolution (DW6851 and DU6871 feature WXGA and WUXGA resolution respectively). All models come with 3D capability and HDBaseT.

The DX6831 (as well as the DW6851 and DU6871) is for large spaces where a versatile, high brightness projector is required. With 8000 ANSI lumens for the XGA (and 7300 and 7000 ANSI lumens of brightness each for the WUXGA and WXGA models), these models feature a high contrast ratio of 3000:1 for deep blacks and richer colours.

Connectivity options include HDMI v.1.4, DisplayPort and DVI-D. In addition, the projectors are equipped with the HDBaseT protocol receiver to transmit HDMI quality video and audio together with control signals as far as 100m, using a single inexpensive CAT 5e or CAT 6 cable.

Daktronics at Wembley

Unlike most ISE 2014 exhibitors, Daktronics didn’t have to wait until visitors entered ISE to start impressing them.

Pete Egart, Daktronics EMEA VP says “… The show provides us with an excellent opportunity to show our products, not just on the stand but also in real life situations. The double-sided digital street furniture outside RAI is one of the first things visitors will see when coming into the show. The display is a clear example of high-quality technology working at its finest in challenging conditions, exposed to weather and competing with the brightness of direct sunlight.”

At ISE 2014, visitors saw the Daktronics Show Control System first-hand — attendees could stop by and interface with the software through a touchscreen that controls the content on every Daktronics display. This comprehensive control solution features advanced software, managing video and graphics content across both LCD and LED technologies. Daktronics Show Control solution benefits fans, advertisers and sponsors.

Their latest version of living surface (system environment for touch-less interactive media installations) will take the possibilities of state-of-the-art media and light technology even further to deliver interactive scenography and mood media.

Particularly the implementation as living wall will impress visitors. The frameless video wall with distance-based camera sensors deploys a lasting effect as a design or advertising element. The available interactive content themes include high-quality nature scenarios or customized productions of the customer’s product and brand world.

UTV 1.0 at LED CHINA 2014

Unilumin debuts the world first 1.0mm LED display - UTV 1.0 at LED CHINA 2014 (nearly 80,000 professional visitors this year from 150 countries or regions).

“Unilumin has been dedicating to developing UTV1.0 since early 2013, why we constantly develop the UHD LED display is because it will help Unilumin to explore a new and huge market which is traditionally using LCD, PDP, DLP and projection technologies. These applications include emergency operations centers, oil & gas assets monitoring center, security/CCTV monitoring center, traffic management center, utilities NOCs, conference room and social media marketing NOCs,” according to Simon Wu, Unilumin Marketing Director.

“We already have done about 50 video wall projects for monitoring centers, TV studios, conference rooms using our current UTV1.9 and UTV2.5, these projects contribute much to our profit growth in 2013, so we think it deserves our constant efforts and the big investment on R&D.


Draper’s TecVision Technology at ISE

  • PDF


Draper says it is taking projection screen technology another step into the future with the creation of TecVision Engineered Surface Technology, seen for the first time at ISE 2014

Available in 5 formulations to start, TecVision features white surfaces with gains ranging from 1.3 to 1.9 over wide-viewing cones for better off-axis viewing. Draper says these are better surfaces with lower and more consistent gloss levels for less distortion in the picture. TecVision surfaces also feature a light absorbing dark backing which prevents picture degradation from light behind the screen.

Draper points out “TecVision surfaces offer huge savings when compared to the costs of purchasing a projector with increased brightness."
