Gallery to display large-venue technologies at InfoComm
JVC’s DLA-QX1 large-venue projector will be one of several new products designed for video boards at large gatherings, on display at the Large Venue Display Gallery at InfoComm 2004.
The International Communications Industries Association will produce the Large Venue Display Gallery to showcase the newest large-event projection technologies at InfoComm 2004, the organization’s annual trade show event taking place in Atlanta June 9-11. Several companies will unveil the latest developments in digital screen technology used in sporting events, concerts, corporate events and other venues with several thousand people in attendance.
The idea for the Large Venue Display Gallery stemmed from the successful InfoComm Projection Shoot-Out last held at InfoComm 2001. The gallery is a noncompetitive free-form event and is not a paid promotion of a particular show exhibitor. Each screening room is self-contained to eliminate ambient light sources, creating the optimum venue for manufacturers to showcase state-of-the-art projectors and accompanying technology.
Barco Events, Christie Digital Systems, JVC, NEC and Sony Electronics will be among the companies displaying new technologies at the gallery. Barco Events will display its SLM R12+ rental and staging projector, which features a compact, high-lumen system and superb image quality. The projector delivers up to 11500 ANSI lumens with SXGA+ resolution and DLP technology. The Barco screening room will show InfoComm Shoot-Out video material, interlaced 1920x1080 with an HD-SDI coax feed; InfoComm Shoot-Out static imagery at a progressive 1920x1080 from a computer; and slide show material at 1920x1080 from a computer.
Christie Digital Systems will unveil its new Roadie 25K projector. Their screening room will showcase a native 2K digitally animated feature, Thru the Moebius Strip, provided by a GDC Technology server.
Sony's Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD) will also be on display at Infocomm.
JVC’s DLA-QX1 will be featured in the company’s screening room with its 7000 lumens of brightness and QXGA 2048x1536 native resolution. JVC will show PC images, graphics and simulations to show QX1’s ultra-high resolution, coupled with a 4:3 aspect ratio, which makes the QX1 well suited for the simulation, graphics and visualization markets.
NEC will show the 5300-lumen NEC GT6000 with SXGA+ resolution (1400x1050) and high-definition capability with 1080i and 720p signal support. This is the next projector in the company’s GT line, which features film like video and crisp and detailed data and graphics display.
Sony will unveil a new digital projector for large-venue and cinema applications. The projector builds upon Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD) technology, which Sony views as a clear alternative for the professional market to LCD or digital light processing (DLP) technologies.
