On Aug 10th 2012, the final station of “Win Your Way to the Top” 2012 Wincomn A/V Technology Roadshows took place at Sofitel Wanda Hotel in Harbin. About 120 visitors from the industry were attracted to see the latest tendency, creative technology and applications in A/V market. Wincomn Roadshow of 2012 started from Shanghai City, then went through Guangzhou, Chengdu, Hefei, Jinan and finally finished in Harbin. The whole journey lasted for 40 days.
Wincomn A/V Technology Roadshow
Wincomn is a leading high-end A/V integrated service provider. In previous years, it held many technology roadshows in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou and once made it popular. That had rapidly accelerated the development of high-end A/V markets in these big cities. As the market became more and more competitive, Wincomn made another progress that it began roadshows in capital cities throughout China. This summer, Wincomn hosted this extraordinary roadshow again with abundant new technologies, new applications and products. In 2012, Wincomn Roadshow focused more on system design, applications and products, which made it different from previous ones.
Generally speaking, the front projection command center was the theme of the show. Besides that, it also covered 4 other applications. That is projection mapping, virtual reality, video conferencing and education training. What’s more, a number of high-end equipments from world leading AV manufacturers were introduced, such as Christie 4K projector(worldwide brightest), dnp Supernova Screen, DIS “3 in 1” conference system DDS 5900, Christie Vista Spyder X 20, Extron Quantum Elite processor, Wolfvision Visualizer, PPI multi-touch screen, etc.
4K Movie Kicked Off the Show
The 4K movie was played by a new Christie D4K35 projector, which featured 35000 lumens and 4K resolution. Visitors were shocked by the clear image and audio, big-size frame and its astonishing 4096*2160 resolution. The 3-minute movie perfectly showed D4K35’s performance on images in daytime, in the night, in dynamic, in colors and in the color adjustment.
4K means a resolution of 4096×2160 (W X H). Now most digital movies in China have 2K resolution, but 4K resolution equals to the combination of 4 or more 2K projectors.
Front Projection Control Room with Exceptional Image Quality
Through the commitments for more than 1 decade in A/V industry, Wincomn has found that many high-end control rooms usually apply combining projection technology on large screens, as the system just needs to be opened for commanding and reporting when necessary rather than working for 24 hours. Nevertheless, a lot of space was needed in the conventional rear projections designs. Therefore, in order to solve the space problem, Wincomn provided two solutions in the show, both of which applied front projection to save space while to project an image quality as good as the rear projection.
Key Points of Front Projection Control Room Design: Based on the actual demands, this application vary the numbers of screen so as to get the multi-window effect; It shows the exceptional display effects as good as rear projection in accordance with the image contrast theory; Projectors and processors practice their own technology properly for blending to facilitate functions of warping, blending, sideband and multi-windows, which ensures the system’s performance effectively.
Solution 1: Front projection control room projection solution featured simple operation, outstanding luminance and ultrahigh resolution
|In this solution, the 4K video was synchronically played by 2 Extron JMP 9600 HD players, each of which had 2 channels and 2K resolution per channel. The worldwide brightest Christie 4K projector D4K35, through Christie Vista Spyder X 20 video processor and matrix switch, shot on 6 pieces of 100 ” dnp optical front projection screen(4:3). This solution simplified the traditional and complex solutions with multiple projectors, extensively facilitating the system’s reliability and maintainability without concerning about the consistency of colors and brightness.|
Solution 2: Front projection control room projection system with 1X2 projectors
|PPI multi-touch screens and Wolfvision Visualizers were used as presentation tools in the application, being together with Extron Quantum Elite equipments, Christie 3-DLP xenon projectors and dnp Supernova Infinity screens to demonstrate this wonderful system. The system featured unlimited-point interactive touch in a face to face way, HD demonstration of objects or documents, window opening in a quick and smooth way, switching of layout and signals, and HD projection in the bright environment.|
HD Training Room of High Brightness, High interaction and Easy Controlling
Referring to HD training room designing, Wincomn put priority on the following 3 concepts:
brightly-lit environment instead of dark environment with lights and curtains off
face-to-face interaction instead of teachers' frequently turning to the back to see the blackboard or whiteboard
simple to control and easy to use
Products recommendation: Christie M series HD projectors, dnp optical front projection screens, Wolfvision VZ-3 visualizer, Extron PoleVault® system.
Video conference Room with High Brightness and High Reliability
Now in china, video conference rooms are paid more and more attention, and the combination of video conference room and commanding center always plays a quite significant role in actual application. Taking the above factor into consideration, Wincomn shared the following requirements for an ideal video conference room.
1.The conference room must be bright enough so that the camera can work and show a bright picture of the leader/speaker. It can be 500-1000 Lux under normal circumstances.
2.According to the standards issued by Infocomm Organization, it requires high-quality image contract up to 80:1 in the room
3.The conference system should be designed on the bases of room size and user’s requirements. Sometimes users need to control the order of speaking without interrupting the conference progress.
4.Available for local control and remote management. Greatly develop the actual effectiveness of teleconference with adding Wolfvision ceiling visualizer.
Products Recommendation: Christie M Series projectors, dnp front projection screens, Wolfvision ceiling visualizer, DIS conference system, Extron Touchlink configurator touch control system.
Wincomn Comprehensive 3D Simulation Solution
The comprehensive simulation Solution on industry design was independently created by Wincomn, in which the camera tracking and positioning system was applied for the first time. With the 6-point positioning glasses and the remote control, visitors could operate the 3D images in a quite intuitive and interactive way, such as zooming in, zooming out, rolling over, and even simulating ”disassembling and assembling “ ect., which was much more professional and interesting. The whole system was combined by Christie Mirage projector and dnp new rear projection screen Zenith as well as some other top-level tracking equipments and software. Therefore, it can be professional to facilitate virtual demos to be displayed and interacted. And the system’s great value for industry designing, military simulating and medical researching was also proven through this. The application caught the eye of professional customers, design researchers and industry delegates. This application could construct larger-size and multi-channel display according to the actual requirements. Wincomn is able to meet users’ demands and integrate the hardware platform and software development, completing satisfactory projects.
Products Recommendation: Christie active 3D projectors + dnp optical rear projection screens+ 6 point positioning and tracking interaction system+ professional software
Based on the main theme, Wincomn designed a ladder pattern projection of 3.6 X 1.35 meters to demonstrate projection mapping. All the images there were vertically projected by a Christie projector in a 90° way and the system had been very creatively designed, having 34 windows. It was such a vivid presentation of the show’s theme that aimed to deliver a special experience of abnormity projection and image depth of field. All these designs and contents in this system were also independently produced by Wincomn. The 90° vertical display projected by Christie projectors was a highlight with 9:16 ratio and a growing pixel in the vertical level. This kind of projection is the best choice for the popular construction mapping sites, as in such occasions, it usually needs high Imaging planes, such as high building, tower, large chimney etc.
Key Points of Projection Mapping: The application needs to apply various players, controllers, transmission and control systems, being through projectors and special installation structure to shoot on complex surfaces such as curved surface, sphere surface, rhombic surface ect. Thus it has stricter requirement on projectors- they should be more stable, reliable and more flexible for installation. Apart from that, it also needs higher capabilities for projectors on depth of field, warping and color adjustment function. This application deployed Christie 90 degree projector with pixels up to 2048 in vertical direction, which is one of its advantages.
Products Recommendation: Christie projectors
