Our visit to ISE 2017 (Integrated Systems Europe) – Part 1
This year our Systems Integration Team visited ISE 2017 as attendees to get ahead of the curve on some of the latest and greatest technologies available in the industry. As a solutions provider and integrator, Dreamtek research new products and services available to see what could be applicable to our customers.
There were a few products and vendors this year who really stood out above the rest, giving engaging and interactive solutions to delivering content.
LG had a few very exciting products on showcase for ISE this year, one of them being their OLED 4K Wallpaper Display. LG had set these displays up on a twister mounting system to show off (and rightly so), its ability to convex and concave as digital signage or independently. The results were breathtaking:
Application:We can see real potential for using these displays in a spherical surround to allow a 360 camera rig in a studio. Imagine being able to film a 360 interview with a round panel and have video displayed on the LG Wallpaper displays.
In China’s Incheon Int’l Airport the OLED displays have been used to create a signature display to greet passengers on entering the airport. This project is the world’s largest OLED signage site and comprised of 280 individual OLED panels that measures 55 inches each:
LG also had a Dual-View Curved Tiling OLED Signage on display which had an impressive display of an audio moving through the curves of the display. The content created for this solution really showed off its ability to capture the audience’s attention. Here’s a video of the set up on LG’s stand at ISE:
Application: Dreamtek work with blue chip clients who have large reception/showcase areas in their offices which this would work beautifully in, especially as its dual sided!
Car show rooms would really benefit from a curved signage solution like LG’s offering to complement the curves of their vehicles, alternatively these panels can be wrapped around pillars or curved walls for 100% impact and use of usually dead space.
We were really impressed with Sony’s VPL-GTZ280 4K Projector dome this year. For ISE 2017 Sony brought the dome to their stand and got an amazing response. The dome is a 5 projector setup which stitches the video into a dome, which can be used for a number of applications from industrial design, CAD, flight simulation, scientific research and healthcare to theme parks, planetariums and visitor attractions.
Here’s a video of our experience:
As if the dome wasn’t enough, Sony knocked it out of the park with their CLEDIS display configured as an 8K x 2K display, ideal for big-screen visualisation applications. I have to say this was incredibly captivating.
The CLEDIS boasts an enormous colour range (140% of sRGB) and 10-bit colour depth, plus impressive 1000 nit brightness, which gives the whole experience an impressive 1st place against the others. The blacks were so black you could literally be lost in them.
