While the U.S. frets over the loss of incandescent light bulbs, bemoaning the loss of warmth and color in their fluorescent replacements, there comes a great beacon of hope.
 
From beyond the horizon appears a new light source so efficient it promises 20,000 hours of life, so bright it measures 10,000 lumens, and such significant depth of color as to make memories of lamps fade away forever.

Truth be told, it’s not a light bulb we’re talking about here, but rather a projector. But the rest of the hype is real. Digital Projection International (DPI) has once again clicked in at “first” with the launch of its HIGHLite LASER WUXGA 3D projector.

At the U.S. debut of the product, held in Atlanta, GA on February 26 in an event concurrent with InfoComm LIVE, DPI execs weren’t the only ones boasting about the bright laser imagery that served as both centerpiece and backdrop for a party at the...

Recently Contemporary Research was chosen as a core HD video distribution backbone for the AV systems upgrade at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, California. The facility was able to build an internal HD cable network—19 custom HD channels—plus a standard CATV lineup.  The bulk of the screens receive modulated signal from the QMOD modulators. The new 7,000-seat stadium and its four restaurants will receive the same 19 HD channels by using 19 QMOD-HD digital modulators and QMOD-HDSC with scalers for sources that have computer graphics.

   Anew C.T. just conducted the Best of Infocomm Mixers in California.  We knew many of our dealers and AV design consultants were unable to make the Infocomm show so...we brought the show to them (at least our manufacturers).  We held a luncheon and an evening cocktail and food events in Santa Clara, San Francisco, Burbank, El Segundo, Irvine and San Diego. We had around 200 people attend these well designed events.

The dealers and consultants said they not only enjoyed the food and drinks but were very appreciative of Anew C.T. sponsoring these New Product events.  Congratulations to the Anew C.T. team for producing the Best of Infocomm Mixers. Great work Rob Moss, Tim Valley, Art Foxall and Renee Gordon!!

Infocomm Webinar Academy, co-sponsored by Anew C.T. manufacturer Digital Projection,  is conducting a webinar Tuesday, July 30, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT, Navigating the Changing Tides of the Church Market.

The American Institute of Architects predicts the church market to be one of the most vibrant, and fastest growing markets in the institutional building segment in the next few years. The recovery will be welcomed by architects, consultants and integrators, yet it successful specifiers and contractors won't be using their business plans from the 80's, 90's and early 2000's. The end-users are more sophisticated, and the designers, integrators and manufacturers have had margins and cash flow cut to the bone. Learn from a panel of industry veterans about how they are surviving the tough times, and their predictions and advice for the future.
