Projection and Screens The Projector Was the Heart of Pro AV Back in the 1980's, just making a projector that worked to blow-up video images on big screens was a feat by itself. NEC, Christie, Sanyo and Digital Projection et al took bold steps to become more than just also-ran "projector manufacturers." The Projector Shoot-Out ruled from 1992 to 1999 and now... Specs are dead. What's the differentiator for integrators now? Service, Service, Service. Gary calls it The Projection Differentiation Decade Photo Above: Epson’s GAMING projector. www.ProAVbiz-Europe.com

Prysm is leveraging Silicon Valley technology to lower the power costs behind large format displays...

“The actual individual tiles are rear-screen, DLP projected, 16"W x 12"H (20" diagonally), 20" deep and weigh 20 pounds. That in itself is not impressive, unless you were or are in the projection CUBE business.” “MicroTiles immediately renders that market, with its giant, multi-person, color-management horror problems, useless. MicroTiles are the ultimate "cube" solution, in our opinion, as they are portable, single-person installable and, because they are LED-lit, are calibrated to AUTOMATICALLY color-correct and light-uniformity by talking to each other. Yes, talking to each other.” GARY KAYYE, CTS

Digital Signage Mitsubishi‘s PlayOut NEC (yes, the display manufacturer) announces a universal advertising platform for digital signage called VUKUNET. Why should you, the integrator, care? Simple -- this is a chance for you to make recurring revenue, via advertising. "What was needed was a solution that encompassed everything...from inception to deployment.Some of that is hardware; some software. The crucial point is that it is an end-to-end solution, not a series of unknowns joined together.". Here comes your footer Page 28

WHO MOVED THE PROJECTOR? The Control Room: An innovation born from the minds-eye of an integration firm in Southern California in the late 1980s. A manufacturer didn't invent this. Digital Signage: NEC Display first coined the term in the mid-1990s,but the concept was born via a moderately successful AV integration firm in Florida. Telepresence: Way before that term was ever used, an up-start AV integration firm from Chicago was taking existing VTC gear and making telepresence rooms that connected two sites together in life-sized proportions. Pro AV integrators are actually always the ones who served as the catalysts to innovation. YOU DID! www.ProAVbiz-Europe.com
