Primeview USA, a worldwide leader in advanced display solutions, has teamed with Lightware USA and High Resolution Systems to feature the manufacturers' equipment in their Partnership Showroom on West 44th Street in Manhattan. The showroom, which opened last February, sets the standard in style and practices for other tech showrooms around the country by demonstrating to end users how complete systems come together.
"Our Partnership Showroom not only shows our own high-end displays but also highlights equipment from select manufacturers whom we believe to be reliable as well as industry relevant," says Chanan Averbuch, Vice Presient of Sales for Primeview USA. "We have created a technology showroom that brings together solutions for entire AV systems."
Averbuch was introduced to Lightware USA at a trade show where he says, "I liked what I saw". After an issue with another manufacturer, Primeview decided to feature the Lightware matrix routers and switchers in their Partnership showroom in New York. The models shown include the MX-FR17 17x17 Digital Matrix Router populated with HDMI 1.4 inputs and outputs that handle up to 4K resolutions and HDBaseT outputs. Some HDBaseT outputs of the Lightware matrix are directly connected to HDBaseT inputs on the Primeview displays and other are connected to Lightware HDMI-TPS-RX95 HDBaseT receivers. Sources are displays are a variety of resolutions including 4K, UHD, 1080p and 720p.
High Resolution Systems' embedded control server the UDC Pro ECS-Raptor and third-party hand-held touch panels were a logical complement to control the routers "with lightning speed," reports Averbuch.
"We're using Lightware and High Resolution Systems equipment to route sources, do processing and control entire systems," he says. "All via Apple iPad and iPhone interfaces. Through the HRS Control Pro app, presets - for prerecorded presentations, switching sources for presentation, power on, power off - are triggered. The app is easily customizable. We will even be building in more functionality, such as specific control over individual devices. It's simple and it works!"
The combined Lightware and HRS system offers control and signal routing and extension of playback from WOW Vision's collaboration system, HAI Vision's pro video IP system, C-Nario digital signage and Sony PlayStation. It also offers control of display devices such as Vista Systems Spyder X20, tvONE's CORIO and a myriad of Primeview and other monitors and panels.
Averbuch says that the staff of Lightware USA and High Resolution Systems have been "extremely responsive" to the concept of the Partnership Showroom. "People are most important to us, and their support has been great in helping us from the ground up with installation, phase two upgrades and attending to the details of the showroom."
Primeview USA is hosting an Open House on November 5 to showcase an HDBaseT AV display and matrix control demonstration featuring Lightware and High Resolution Systems products. Attendance is limited; to schedule a demo visit http://bit.ly/pvlwdemo.
