50 thedaily Education Experts display their knowledge

Among the InfoComm University courses at ISE 2013 will be a num- ber of sessions addressing different aspects of display technology. The challenging subject of

video wall calibration will be addressed by Steve Jackson of Spec- traCal in ‘Finish the Job! Video Standards and Display Matching’. The seminar will discuss the ele- ments of the picture that matter most and how to more easily use the same process, no matter the manufacturer. “So many companies are chal-

lenged by matching one display to another,” says Jackson. “We will teach a process by which this chal-

lenge is simplified, results are improved and theory understood. Why use four varied processes for four different manufacturers’ products?”

Greg Jeffreys

from Paradigm Audio Visual, past president of Info- Comm Interna- tional, will present a guide to the recent ANSI

Standard on Projected Images Sys- tem Contrast Ratio (aka ‘PICSaR’), on which he was lead writer. He says: “This is an incredibly practi- cal tool as it leads to a superior

image quality and helps integra- tors to sell on value – and users to define what they need accurately. I will describe the Standard, espe- cially the four types of viewing cat- egories, as well as how to select them.” The title of the session is ‘Measure of Success – Projected Image Quality’. David Aleksandersen of projec-

tiondesign will present a seminar entitled ‘Emerging Illumination Technologies: Hybrid, LED & Lasers’. He explains: “Anyone inter- ested in displays and the future of displays will walk away with a good understanding of the pros and cons of using such technolo-

Riding the video boom

With the online video market pro- jected for massive growth over the next few years, there are Info- Comm education courses available to help integrators, consultants and others to avail themselves of the opportunities in this area. Perhaps the presentation most central to this idea is ‘How Net- worked Video Will Change Your Business and the AV Market’ by Paul Depperschmidt of Cisco. The presentation will explore the next

five years in the AV and networked video market – reviewing collabo- ration (including telepresence) dig- ital signage, web-based conferencing, media storage and retrieval as well as the glue to con- nect them all, Unified Communi- cations. “People should attend because this is a $50 billion market opportunity for integrators and consultants,” he says. Peter Maag of Haivision will present ‘Planning your Multicast

Enterprise Video Network’. Today's trend of delivering video over IP is rapidly changing the way enter- prises both man-

age and distribute their content. By using multicast video workflows, organisations can now fully lever- age the opportunities of IP video and mitigate the challenges of this powerful new type of deployment.

A sound footing for audio

Representing the ‘A’ in AV are Info- Comm University courses on sound system design and audio gain.


Ramuscak of d&b audiotech- nik will present to delegates on

‘The Secret of a Good Sound Sys- tem Design’. This session will pro- mote the notion that the designer of a modern sound reinforcement system should remember and respect some fundamental acoustic relationships before attempting to fix problems digitally. Ramuscak says: “It is all about managing

direct sound, that is, where it goes. That may seem basic but attendees will find out that this has vital implications for other parameters.” ‘Setting Audio Gain – Getting it Right’ will look at the fundamen- tals of setting audio gain through- out a sound or conferencing system. Both unity gain and system

optimisation methods will be demonstrated with step-by-step methodology. The presenter is Gordon Moore of Lectrosonics,

who says: “We will discuss how to

identify gain structure problems and how to correct them. This sem- inar will cover not only the cause and effect of poor gain structure but will offer two simple methods for setting up gain. Both methods require only simple equipment – no fancy expensive audio equip- ment is needed.”

Brian Davies of AMX Europe will present ‘System Design in the Net- centric Era. The ses- sion promises to present some of the

thought processes and design approaches required to build a suc- cessful system that leverages the network to its best effect. ‘Lessons Learned – Streaming Video to Both Desktop and

Mobile Devices’ is the self- explanatory title of a session pre- sented by Doug Howard, CEO of of VBrick. He says: “Have you ever won-

dered how a live stream can emanate from a plane, be stream- ing onto a LAN for an Army Colonel to watch and to your iPad as a journalist observer? “Come and find out how to make this work during this educa- tional session!”

gies, and the roles that they will play in the coming years.”

Finally , Fredrik Svahn- berg of Dataton will be presenting a session on ‘Multi-Image Pro- jection Tech- niques’. The

seminar will look at the produc- tion workflow, systems integration and available tools. It will explore technical and creative challenges for the application of multi-image projections on to three-dimen- sional surfaces, curved and dome- shaped screens.

“The session will appeal to pretty much anyone in the AV events industry who wants to learn more about the challenges, tech- niques and the media-production- process in such projects,” comments Svahnberg. “The ses- sion will appeal both to a techni- cal/creative and marketing/creative oriented audience. “One of my goals with this ses- sion is to straighten out some of the common misunderstandings and misperceptions on how to produce, for example, a 3D mapping projec- tion. The session will provide pretty comprehensive guidance on most of the important components.”
