ISE Stories, DM 22 04

ISE 2015 runs between 10th and 12th February in Amsterdam’s RAI. Display Monitor will be there to bring you full coverage from the show as it happens.

The largest product launch in Atlona‘s (7.P180) 12-year history will take place at the show. There will be more than 12 new products for residential and commercial applications, including UltraHD extenders, switchers and matrixes. Atlona will also show its first HDCP 2.2 residential components.

BenQ‘s (4.R50) stand will revolve around the ‘BenQ Shopping Centre’ concept. LCD displays for signage will naturally be part of this, with products to include the 46″ PL460 and IL460 LCD displays; 55″ dual-sided (DH550C) and single-sided narrow bezel (PL550) displays; bar-type (SV500 and BH380) screens; and a new high-brightness and heat-resistant model (55″ SH550), which has 2,500cd/m² of brightness. The SH550 can withstand up to 110° before experiencing blackening defects.

Signage for education will be featured separately. Primarily this will be the 79″ RP790S interactive whiteboard, which features an anti-glare display, embedded Android, 10-point touch, low blue light and flicker free modes.

Finally, BenQ will show off its projectors. These will include the PX9710 (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 47) and new SU917 and MH856UST models. The SU917 is BenQ’s first fixed-lens 1920 x 1200 high-brightness model, with features including LAN control and a filter-free design. The MH856UST is an ultra-short-throw model with 1920 x 1080 resolution – also a first for BenQ – supporting optional pen and finger touch, as well as dual MHL-HDMI ports.

Calibre (4.U64) is adding a new model to its LEDView range of LED videowall-optimised image scalers. The LEDView325DS is designed for cost-conscious customers. It features the company’s pixel-accurate per-edge image re-sizing algorithm; this can be used to independently drag each edge of the picture content to the correct position on the LED videowall. Additionally, the scaler has per-input colour calibration capability, providing control of RGB gains and blacks, as well as saturation and hue, even on computer-generated content.

Crystal Display Systems (8.M252) will show products from multiple categories. There will be 46″ and 55″ super-narrow bezel videowall displays; ultra-wide ‘stretched’ models (6.2″ – 49.5″); transparent touch screens in 5.7″ – 84″ (UltraHD) sizes; transparent non-touch screens for signage (24″ and 47″); super-slim floor-standing totems, with an integrated HD media player (also available with touch); AIO procap touch PCs (6.5″ – 82″, up to 32 touch points); touch screens using Baanto’s Shadowsense technology; and a specialised Android tablet, the CDSPAD, for 24/7 retail use.

Digital Projection (1.F60) will show its own large-scale installation products. These include the Insight 4k, a 3DLP LED projector; an UltraHD 3DLP laser projector reaching 12,000 lumens; and a range of other 1DLP and 3DLP models.

The new EB-G6000 models will be available from April.

Draco-series dual-link and DisplayPort KVM extenders, for KVM signals, will be on offer from IHSE (10.R120). These new models support transmission of video up to DCI-4k at 30Hz or 2560 x 2048 at 60Hz over a single Cat-X or fibre cable. Used in pairs, these units can extend signals up to 140m (Cat-X) or 10km (fibre).

UltraHD, AV distribution and management over IP will be shown by Gefen (1.M45). Demonstrations will include the company’s devices delivering UltraHD content to multiple displays and providing transport for AV signals over a LAN. In terms of new products, the company will introduce HDBaseT 2.0 extenders (adding 50m to the range of existing solutions) and AV IP control options. The new Syner-G software suite will also be shown.

The highlight of Kiosk Solutions‘ (8.E361) stand will be a curved, interactive 3D videowall. Formed of several 140″ sections, that are either flat, concurve or concave, the display will measure 3.1m x 1.54m, supporting multiple touch points. In addition, a range of new ‘traditional’ kiosks will be on show, in 19″ and 32″ sizes.
