Insight 4K HFR 360 – Interact and Collaborate in 4K-3D

Prior to the launch of Digital Projection’s newest product, 3D technology suffered from a significant immersive limitation: each user was seeing exactly the same image, regardless of where they were positioned. Digital Projection has again moved ahead of its competitors with the INSIGHT 4K HFR 360 Multi-View 3D projector, which can finally offer truly immersive, collaborative and interactive 3D experiences.

The Insight 4K HFR 360 is capable of rendering three independent native 4K-3D viewing perspectives, with the addition of a second unit able to increase the amount of VR viewers to six.

The projector can be matched with headtracking technology, allowing users to see content from a unique perspective, remaining appropriate to the user’s changing position for collaborative content sharing.

This system has the ability to track each user down to six degrees of freedom, utilizing active 3D glasses that can switch between black and transmissive states in approximately 200ups.

Previously, the ultra-fast frame rates required for a multi-viewer 3D system have meant sacrificing resolution – and therefore image fidelity. Digital Projection was not willing to accept such a compromise. The new INSIGHT 4K HFR 360 offers both native 4K and high frame rate – thanks to the thousands of hours invested by Digital Projection’s team of experts and their unsurpassed experience in 3-chip DLP projection.

Instead of providing 120 frames per second, which is enough for single user 3D, the INSIGHT 4K HFR 360 delivers an unrivalled 360 frames per second at native 4K resolution, enabling content creators to serve three independent, high-resolution 3D views with just one projector. Furthermore, the addition of a second projector to the system increases the unique user 3D views to six.

TIM-1000 – The New Standard for Huddle Rooms and Conference Spaces

Meet TIM. Clockaudio introduces, TIM-1000 enables microphones to track the person speaking and follow them  anywhere in the room, automatically compensating for their distance from the microphone while maintaining real time audio capture.

The concept behind TIM-1000 is simplicity; ease of installation, user-friendly set up and adaptability. The TIM-1000 installs just like a ceiling speaker (using dog legs) and can easily be installed in a drop ceiling or hard ceiling. TIM is “set to go” and does not require any programming or the need to set up different lobes. In addition, it can self-configure to any space.

At the core of TIM’s new level for microphone intelligence, is Clockaudio’s Adaptive Proximity Technology© (APT). This APT allows TIM to keep a consistent sound level for the person speaking and will automatically compensate for the distance of the participant from the microphone while maintaining real time audio capture.

As your most important meeting “participant”, TIM will scan the room to find any steady state noise and will attenuate it, making the room quieter. As soon as someone speaks, TIM zeroes in on the person speaking and effortlessly tracks them wherever they move within the space to maintain a consistent volume level.   Even when someone else starts speaking, TIM can ‘follow’ any other source of speech anywhere in the room as they move around, constantly adjusting their output level for a more even level at the far end.   

Jim Hallington, Clockaudio Founder and Managing Director for Clockaudio Ltd. comments, “From the moment we discussed this product’s development, we understood that it would create tremendous interest when it hit the market. We are thrilled to be launching TIM-1000 at InfoComm 2019 and even more excited about the industry’s enthusiastic response to it.”

TIM’s features are many. It only requires one channel of AEC, making it cost effective. UL listed, TIM works well with any soft codec, is compatible with both Dante and AES67, making it easy to work with any DSP of choice.

Other features for TIM-1000 include noise suppression, 3-band EQ, intuitive GUI, and an RGB ring that provides for visual room status. Powered over ethernet, the device utilizes API control via UDP commands and comes with separate control and audio paths. TIM-1000 is available in Custom Nextel colors to fit the décor and aesthetic of any room.

Biamp Makes Conference Room Speakers Easier to Install with Desono

Accompanying the desono speakers is the optional PoE+ AMP-450BP amplifier that mounts cleanly onto the back of the speaker, eliminating the need for multiple cable runs back to the rack. Each backpack amp powers up to seven additional desono speakers via category cable, creating a 100 percent termination-free installation, enabling a structured cabling crew to complete the entire above-ceiling audio rough-in for a conference room.

Have it Your Way: Customization Never Scares ClockAudio

When most manufacturers shy away from customization, Clockaudio embraces it. Every now and then an application will call for a specification of a microphone that is non-existent. This might be a particular place where any standard microphone cannot be mounted to perform adequately, or a specific demand that meets the need for a seemingly extreme solution.

Clockaudio is always receptive to unusual requests from end-users, consultants, designers, or project managers. Whether it’s a specific color to match the company colors in a boardroom, a specific length of a gooseneck mic, or even redesigning the physical build of a microphone to fit a tight space or requirement, Clockaudio is ready to step up to the challenge.
