3D Projection Technologies for the Home: A Review (Morning Session #2)

Society for Information Display – Mid-Atlantic Chapter Meeting: CES 2011 Recap

This year’s Consumer Electronics Show rebounded nicely from the recession with over 100,000 attendees, but the focus was on practical applications and not so much razzle-dazzle. 3D and gesture recognition weren’t as big, but connected TVs and Blu-ray players were, along with over-the-top (OTT) video, smart phone apps, and next-generation home media networks. (And yes, there were a few head-scratching products, as always.)

InfoComm 2011: ISO58 Digital Video Soup to Nuts

This class will get you up and running (in a hurry!) with a comprehensive discussion of digital video, including sampling, bit rates, digital video encoding/decoding formats, SDTV vs. HDTV, multicasting, recording, storage and playback platforms such as Blu-ray and flash memory, and time-shifting vs. streaming.  You’ll also explore the concept of Internet Protocol TV (IPTV), and transmission protocols and network types. (Note – this class will NOT cover digital video production.)

InfoComm 2011: IS011 AV Signals Gone Wireless

Yeah, I know you stream Netflix over your home media network. And you can watch YouTube videos on your smart phone. That’s kid stuff! How about uncompressed 1080p/24 Blu-ray movies flying across the room to your 55-inch TV? Or multi-channel audio that configures its sweet spot in 1/2 a second? Or a complete wireless USB docking station for your laptop that’s smart enough to turn itself off after you pack up and move away? This isn’t WiFi, my friend – its uncompressed, high-bandwidth wireless video and audio. Is it ready for the pro AV channel? Well – sort of. Come to this seminar and find out about the different standards being proposed for wireless HB connectivity. (With luck, I’ll even be able to demonstrate a couple of systems to you!)
