Projection Mapping, 4K, video walls to take center stage at InfoComm 2015
Tomorrow, the AV industry will come together in Orlando, FL for InfoComm 2015 – the largest audio visual show in the Americas. We’ve made a few predictions for the show – take a look and let us know if you agree in the comments!
- 4K: Last InfoComm, we saw a rapid expansion of 4K offerings but little content to actually show on them. This year, we predict an expansion of content and an increase of business applications for this technology. The market is moving towards using 4K content to have a greater influence on customers by providing high quality content though the images created. 4K technology offers high resolution, benefiting industries where viewing, sharing, and interpreting information has an impact on key constituents. This year, we’ll start to see wider 4K adoption in video production, architecture, retail, security and healthcare.
- Projection mapping: From award shows to the 2014 Winter Olympics, we expect projection mapping to continue its growth. Projection mapping utilizes projectors and software to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for video projection. By using specialized software, a two- or three-dimensional object is spatially mapped on the virtual program which mimics the real environment it is to be projected on. The software can interact with a projector to fit any desired image onto the surface of that object. Projection mapping really is as limitless as your imagination. We’ll be showcasing a very cool projection mapping demo at booth 1501.
- Video Walls: Video walls are appearing everywhere these days: TV news sets, store fronts, hospital lobbies, sports bars, airports…virtually everywhere. In fact, according to experts at the Digital Signage Expo, the global market for video walls is expected to see double-digit growth in the next few years. Sales are forecast to approach 1 million units by 2015. What’s driving this increased adoption of video walls? For starters, better picture quality and slimmer bezels provide an almost seamless image that can be displayed in virtually any size desired. Additionally, video walls are available at a number of lower price points, which means everyone from large retailers to small start-ups are able to leverage this high-impact technology for themselves.
