ISE 2018 Highlights

ISE was a triumph with some fantastic AV brands showcasing their latest innovations.  Here were Paul’s highlights.

LG OLED Transparent Open Frame:

The fact that this OLED signage is totally standalone is really impressive and its high transparency makes it perfect for retail and window spaces.  What struck me was there was no need to have any light shining through it to achieve total transparency.   It would also be perfect for art galleries where products can be placed behind video or special effects displayed directly onto it.

Samsung Cinema

Samsung’s 3D LED Cinema was screening 2D and 3D movies from its private sound proof room, with audio provided by Harman.  The LEDs have a gap of just 2.5mm and are available in both 2K and 4K.    It’s the first on the market to have this DCI certification and delivers the same brightness and resolution as its Cinema LED Screen, without any left/right eye crosstalk – so no feeling of dizziness when you’re watching 3D visuals.

Christie Mystique

This ‘Guardian’ technology from Christie is incredible! Its edge blending technology enables 2 or 3 projectors to be used simultaneously and automatically corrects the positioning of the image if they’re moved or jolted by accident.  Built into all their projectors, this kind of auto alignment will totally transform the events industry, where the likelihood of bumping into the projectors is increased as more people are moving around backstage.

AV News Winners!

We were chuffed to bits to win the Reseller of the Year in the AV News Awards.  We were in a really strong category, so congrats to all the other finalists.
