Merry Christmas, happy holidays and welcome to the Fall/Winter 2005 edition of Scanlines, house organ of The Enright Company. It has been a very busy fall – the only way to have it.

Our 15th Sort-of Annual Golf Tournament was a resounding success in early November- sort-of because we skipped two years along the way. 46 players turned out on a spectacular day at Green River Golf Course in Corona. The Enright Company is grateful to our manufacturers who contributed to this tournament. A donation from the event will go to the Infocomm International storm relief fund.

The open house at Large Screen Displays (www.largescreendisplays.com), cosponsored by RGB Spectrum in October was a huge success for our integrators. The new RGB Spectrum (www.rgb.com) Media Wall 2000 was debuted, as 45+ joined us for a day of demonstrations of this all-new video wall processor. Large Screen rolled out several new screen materials and custom rear screen configurations for AV integrators.

The Fall Leadership Forum of Infocomm International (formerly ICIA), www.infocomm.org,  was held in September at the Westfield Marriott in Chantilly, VA. Prominent industry individuals make up seven councils from various corners of the business in the association. I have the privilege of chairing of the Independent Representatives Council for a two-year term, The association has committees involved in increasing membership, developing technical and best-practice standards, industry promotion, recruitment and more. This highly professional forum is a real asset to many facets of our industry.

Dave Fahrbach from our firm participated in the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Hoffman Video/Tangren event in Santa Ana in October. The evening show was for architects and designers. The Enright Company showed Vaddio (www.vaddio.com), programmable camera systems, RGB Spectrum (www.rgb.com), QuadView XL, and Sampo (www.sampoamericas.com),flat panels at the event. Thanks to Steve Rodriquez of Hoffman for inviting us to this event.

Snader and Associates celebrated their 30th Anniversary with a gala cocktail reception at the very cool Ruby Sky nightclub in San Francisco in October. Congrats to Bob, John and the gang for a great ride – continued success for the next 30 J

As always, thanks for scanning Scanlines.

RGB Spectrum debuts MediaWall 2000 Multi-Screen Processor
by David Fahrbach

RGB

The MediaWall® 2000 is a fully real time video/data wall processor for arrays of projectors, cubes or flat panel displays. Each processor supports up to four outputs. Processors can be combined to support 6, 8 and 10 outputs.

MediaWall 2000® is a custom, high performance processor instead of PC, like most display wall processors, adding more flexibility, stability and security.

The MediaWall processor can display up to six graphics and six video signals simultaneously anywhere, any size, on the entire screen array, within or across screens, in correct aspect ratio or stretched to fit, in whole or zoomed to emphasize details. Unlike other video/data walls, the MediaWall processor has no limits on display alternatives; the multi-screen array forms a virtual screen in which any display of windows is possible. The system is always real time - no dropped frames.

Graphics inputs up to 1920 x 1200 pixels in RGB or DVI format, HDTV inputs up to 1080i and 1080p and composite, component or S-Video inputs are supported, as well as background images, up to the aggregate resolution of the display wall.

It's easy to control via RS-232 or Ethernet port. A web browser based control system provides both local and remote operation. The user interface provides a graphical representation of the wall with "drag and drop" window positioning and scaling.

This system is tough: packaged in a compact 2U rack mountable enclosure with replaceable air filter, redundant power supplies, and thermostatically controlled fans, an excellent solution for challenging environments.
