58% of Students Can't Read Content on a 70" Flat Panel

Very interesting article that needs to be considered when designing, specifying and installing a presentation venue with large displays.

Although this is well known in the AV industry, systems are being specified with flat panel displays, due to low maintenance and increasing affordability.

Projectors are still needed and mustn't be considered "old tech" It is still the most economical solution when you require a display larger than 70 inches.

The source selection and display configurations are controlled via a KramerAndroid K-Touch Tablet. AVC designed this system with the following products:

  • 1 x PTN MMX1616 Modular Matrix Switcher with various Analog and digital inputs, all scaled to HDBaseT (HDMI over CAT) outputs.

AVC @ ISE 2015 - Sony Vision Presenter

One of the more interesting products that we saw at the ISE show in Amsterdam last week was Sony's Vision Presenter.

Basically this system allows for multiple sources to be viewed on multiple displays in a large variety of layout options.

The entire system is controlled via a Smart device (we saw being used with atablet) The system includes source mirroring, allowing you to view the source content on your smart devices.

The multi display functionality allows for single, dual or triple displays with edge blending.

To move and re-size the display sources between the three displays was a simple swipe or pinch of the tablet.

Can't wait to get my hands on one these systems.
