For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2014 TEA organises one-day VIP Tour

The Themed Entertainment Association is organising a VIP Tour of ISE 2014 on Thursday 6 February. This follows the success of similar events at the ISE and InfoComm shows last year.

The aim of the tour is to

provide professionals who work alongside integrators in projects – such as architects and interior designers – to gain an understanding of the basics of various kinds of audiovisual and

electronic system technology. Because the event is organised by TEA, the emphasis will be on technologies employed in theme parks, visitor attractions, museum exhibits and other themed environments. David Willrich, owner of

integrator DJ Willrich and president of the TEA's European and Middle Eastern board, gave an example of the information likely to be imparted to tour participants: "It's an opportunity

to come and look at a broad range of hardware and find out why they use some of the kit that they do use. If they're advising a client on what attraction options they have for a given space, and if, say, they want to use projection, then they need to understand projector types, limitations and costs and so on before they say 'Yes, we can do this for £250,000' when it should actually be £2.5 million." The tour has been expanded

this year into a one-day event. This will begin with a series of presentations by smaller manufacturers. "Rather than get everyone doing all the walking, we'll ask the smaller companies to come to a room and make presentations about their technology and how it fits into the market – not in a company or brand-led way, but in a generic way," explained Willrich. There will then be a guided tour of some of the larger exhibitors'

84in display is world’s brightest DYNASCAN TECHNOLOGY

A new 84in large-format display, claimed to be the brightest of its type in the world, has been launched by DynaScan Technology. The DS841LR4 is the largest professional LCD offering from DynaScan, and features a 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) IPS LCD with an ultra-high brightness backlight (with local dimming), producing a sunlight-viewable 2,500-nit image.

The DS841LR4 is designed for

large-scale display applications in high ambient light environments, and is said to be an ideal solution for storefront windows, outdoor kiosks and other locations with direct sunlight. As solar heat gain is a concern when a display is placed behind glass, the DS841LR4 includes what Dynascan describes as an ultra-quiet, high efficiency cooling system, along with a high

temperature resistant panel capable of tolerating temperatures up to 110°C (240°F) before experiencing blackening. Local dimming of the backlight means that darker areas of an image receive less backlighting than lighter areas, producing a high contrast image with deep black levels.

The DS841LR4 uses IPS display technology for accurate colour from all viewing angles. Each screen is individually colour-calibrated to the D65 (6,500K) colour standard to ensure uniformity among multiple displays. The screen may also be calibrated to a user’s specification using DynaScan’s calibration solution. The new model expands

DynaScan’s portfolio of high brightness displays to ten different models in various sizes, brightness levels and form factors. The DS841LR4 will begin shipping this quarter. Stand: 11-K66

Cardinal virtues of networked control SOMMER CABLE

A modular, networked media control system that includes amplifier, mixers and more has been introduced by Sommer Cable. The Cardinal DVM 194 series promises to be a “very reasonably priced and fully modular device generation which offers an unprecedented flexibility”. It can be used as a fully closed system or as an open system with free interfaces. Sommer Cable showed

prototype DVM 194 units at ISE last year. “Since the interest did not fade, we were refining the prototypes last year and can now present a DVM 194 series which will hit the market with a lot of extra features,” said Peter Rieck, key account and distribution

manager, Sommer Cable. All the devices are fully

networkable via IP with built-in two-port 100 Base-T switch, and are based on the same controller platform. Set-up is quickly done without programming through the integrated web interface. The range includes: the DVM- 194-CON Media Controller, with four RS232 interfaces for

Four Sommer Cable DVM 194 control, mixing, amp and routing modules

bidirectional communication with connected devices (such as a motor-driven canvas, a beamer lift or blackout equipment), plus 12 momentary switch interfaces and 12 programmable LED outputs. The compact DVM-194-AMP Mini High-Performance Amplifier delivers two 100W channels into 4

ohms (50W @ 8 ohms) and produces almost no waste heat, while the DVM-194-AMIX Automatic Mix Machine offers “an unprecedented degree of automation”, with gain and level adjustable on all channels (including keeping microphone channels at a desired level). The DVM-194-HDS Picture Source Selector can route up to four HDMI picture sources to two HDMI outputs and allows a total automation via the media controller. The 24V devices can be

integrated into Sommer’s popular Sysboxx housing system. A 2RU frame will take up to four with an installation depth of 14cm.

Stand: 5-S120

The new DynaScan DS841LR4 delivers 2,500 nits

stands on the ISE 2014 showfloor, after which the group will return to the room for a summing-up presentation. The event will be rounded off with and an end-of-day ‘mixer’ networking reception. Membership of TEA is not a

requirement to take part in the VIP Tour. Spaces are limited, so those with an interest in participating should apply for further information by emailing

Blending 4K and beyond


Demonstrated live on its ISE 2014 stand for the first time will be Sony’s new Multi-View interactive presentation solution, which is said to offer users greater flexibility and more opportunities for audience engagement during live presentations. By combining Sony HD controllable cameras, F-series edge blending projectors and DWZ wireless audio systems, it enables presenters to interact with multiple sources of content over one, large edge-blended screen and to bring corporate meetings, university lectures or big events to life. Sony will also be showing

the SRX-T615’s ability to seamlessly edge blend and tile high contrast 4K content from multiple projectors to create super-sized image displays. The projector features 4K resolution, brightness of 18,000 lumens, contrast ratio of 12,000:1, and what the company says is very high colour accuracy and image uniformity. Reduced running costs are facilitated by the SRX-T615’s multi-lamp array, with six HPM sources in individual cartridges making lamp replacement easier and safer. Reduced risk of ‘dark screen’ lamp outages is complemented by fail-safe reliability, plus greater operating flexibility with the ability to select the number of lamps lit to meet the needs of different applications and venue sizes.
