Compelling opportunities at the industry forum for Display technology
London, 4 March 2011 - NEC Display Solutions announce the third annual Solutions Showcase to take place on Wednesday 6th April. NEC Display Solutions, in conjunction with their Solutions Partners, will showcase the latest developments to impact on the Displays industry at the most unique and compelling Display Solutions event of the year to be held within the backdrop of London‘s iconic Battersea Power Station.
The NEC Solutions Showcase enjoys an established reputation as a unique forum to exchange ideas and to experience a vast range of innovative technology solutions. The event focuses on application rather than product for a truly beneficial experience for anyone buying, installing or specifying within a Displays related environment.
The event will feature a number of interactive zones enabling visitors to experience real-life demonstrations within the key areas of Education, Digital out of Home, Control Rooms, Professional Office and Meeting Rooms, 3D and Green Display Technology. This is not just another exhibition but a unique chance to get hands-on with the latest technology from some of the industry‘s pioneering leaders. New for 2011, the Showcase will be augmented by two free of charge seminars hosted by ‘The Screen Forum’ covering “Education – maximising your budget” and “Wayfinding” from research undertaken at Westfield Shopping Centre. The Screen Forum UK is an independent group dedicated to the ongoing development of the digital signage industry. Its members include representatives from all aspects of this rapidly growing medium, and its events aim to promote best practice across the industry through the sharing of expertise and thought-leadership.
Demonstrating within the zones at the show will be some of NEC’s Display Solutions Partners including SMART, Instore Media, Scala, Nexus, Pixel Inspiration, AMX, OneLan, U-touch, CBS, TeamMate, Extron, Dexon, Lifesize, DAS Business Furniture, Ergonomic Solutions, Matrox, Crestron, NexNix, VBrick, Saturn Visual, Whitespace, 3D International and Amazing Interactive and many more.
‘The NEC Solutions Showcase is the manifestation of what NEC Display Solutions represents as the leading provider of commercial display solutions.’ said Simon Jackson, VP NEC Display Solutions. ‘I am delighted by the response to our annual Showcase both in terms of the quality, quantity and mix of attendees but also by the genuine cooperation between our Solutions Partners and I am confident of even greater rewards for all participants in 2011’.
Open to anyone buying, installing or specifying within the displays industry, visitors are invited to attend the event free of charge in order to meet with the NEC team and explore possible opportunities whilst earning a chance to win an iPod! The event will take place on Wednesday 6th April with the Education seminar in the morning and the Wayfinding seminar in the afternoon.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
