Notes From Logan

A little rock history and a bit on longevity

by Logan Enright, CTS - The Enright Company 


LoganStones50thLogoSaw the Stones in Anaheim last month – saw them in 1963 at Boston Garden when I was twelve also. That was fifty years earlier and this is their 50th anniversary tour. In ’63 I went with a friend, his mother and his grandmother! I wonder if anyone other than the band members: Jagger, Richards and Watts and I were at the Honda Center in Anaheim and at the Garden in 63? Doubtful.  Just a little rock history and perhaps a bit about longevity…

Speaking of longevity, attended my 37th InfoComm last month in Orlando. Along with associates, Dave Fahrbach, Jason Housel and Adrian Torres it was a good show. Perhaps a little lightly attended by the West Coast integrators and consultants it was still a nice event. We picked up awards from Casio, Vaddio, Hall Research and RGB Spectrum for sales performance. Thanks to all who contributed to those accolades (you know who you are).

In this issue of Scanlines we feature new products from: Vaddio, Casio, Hall Research, VSI, RGB, Installer's Choice, and TOA Electronics.

Our Fall Roadshows are coming up this year – standby for more on those, but in the meantime have a great Summer!



Vaddio Brings 3-Chip Performance to Single Chip Cameras: HD-22 and HD-30

PowerVIEW HD-22 and HD-30 Cameras Built Around New Maicovicon MOS Imaging Sensor Technology

by Dave Fahrbach, CTS - The Enright Company

Dave Vaddio’s, www.vaddio.com,  new PowerVIEW HD PTZ cameras bring 3-Chip broadcast camera performance to a single-chip camera. Based on third-generation Maicovicon MOS imaging sensor technology, the HD-22 and HD-30 improve color and brightness uniformity, ensuring an improved high definition image quality.

The HD-22 comes equipped with an multi-element 22x optical glass auto-focus zoom lens that provides up to a 66-degree field-of-view for a wide range of telephoto or wide-angle shot options. An impressive 128x wide dynamic range covers both light and dark contrasted areas and a Color Capture light system produces vivid color images without color saturation or filtering. The HD-30 adds a 30x optical power zoom, capable of capturing the most detailed video images even in the largest rooms.

VaddioThe PowerVIEW HD-22 and HD-30 are the industry’s first robotic PTZ cameras to use the new MOS 1/2.8-Progressive Scan imaging sensor. By suppressing uneven brightness, they provide unmatched low-light performance of 0.4 LUX and a Super Sharp Detail technology for auto-sharpening fuzzy images.

Outputs include native 1080p/60/50 analog component and HDMI video resolutions, ideal for use in the highest demanding HD camera applications requiring a 3-Chip PTZ camera.


Casio's Dual Projection System Combines Two LampFree™ Projectors

Overlapping images bring approximately twice the brightness of a single projector

by Jason Housel - The Enright Company

JasonCasio's, www.casioprojector.com, Dual Projection System combines two LampFree™ Projectors and projects overlapping images onto a single screen with 6500 lumen brightness; approximately twice the brightness of a single projector. The Geometric Correction System aligns both images and this provides a sharper and brighter projection good for large screens in restaurants, pubs, and sports bars.

The Enright Company and Casio have received a $1M award for a single school district for Casio projectors in our region. This illustrates the market acceptance to the hybrid (laser/LED) technology.

CasioDualProjectorCasio's Laser & LED light source has an estimated life of 20,000 hours which is 10 times a typical mercury lamp projector (2000 hours). At 16 hours per day of operation that equals 3 years of operation without a lamp change or a dark screen. And the savings add up ... if you change lamps 3 times per year with a $300 per lamp cost, your potential savings could be $900 per projector in your store.

Casio's Hybrid & LED light source is the most economical solution in the projector world. Our projectors are ideal for long term use which leads to reductions in running costs and maintenance fees you would pay if you had high-pressure mercury lamp projectors. And best of all, LampFree™ means no lamp failures or blank screen.
