DP's CEDIA 2012 Recap - Elite Home Entertainment Abounds in Indy

Digital Projection's CEDIA 2012 Showcase

A special THANK-YOU to everyone who joined us in our booth, visited one of our partner booths, attended one of our training sessions and/or visited the Future Tech Pavilion.

Digital Projection at CEDIA 2012

Embracing change is fundamental to progress, and DP's CEDIA 2012 presence rang in the changes in numerous ways. Instead of our traditional 'black box' that, in years past, displayed the industry's most advanced projectors in theater-like settings, we embraced a light, open and accessible layout. Attendees still experienced the power, precision and image quality of numerous DP displays, but this time in the fully-exposed environment of harsh tradeshow lighting.

Digital Projection at CEDIA 2012Integrators looking to expand beyond the traditional dedicated theater were given a real-world lesson in how light affects projection. As well as experience first-hand how DP's single and 3-chip products continue to produce dazzling imagery, even in the most unforgiving venues.

Two dedicated theaters balanced out the visual spectacle, displaying the new HIGHlite 3D, as well as the truly distinct dVision Scope and higher-brightness dVision LED projectors. More about those will be revealed below.

Beautiful Example of Architectural Mapping with DP's TITAN Quad Projectors

Albright-Knox Museum Relies on Digital Projection

In celebration of the Albright-Knox Museum's 150th Anniversary, K2imaging, New City Video and Stereo Advantage collaborated to bathe the museum's exterior in glorious light using seven of Digital Projection International's 16,000 lumen TITAN Quad projectors.

Albright-Knox Museum Relies on Digital Projection

Digital projection and technical presentation experts K2imaging provided projection equipment and engineering services. New City Video and Dan Hartnett brought content and control equipment to the table, while Kevin Bohner, system design manager with Stereo Advantage, oversaw the implementation of signal and communication connectivity.

Per the Albright-Knox website, the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy—the governing body of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery—was founded in 1862. As such, it is among the country's oldest public arts institutions in the United States. Today, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is dedicated to enhancing the understanding and appreciation of contemporary and modern art through education, exhibition and public events.

Albright-Knox Museum Relies on Digital Projection

VIDEO: To truly appreciate most architectural mapping projects, one needs to see the creative in full motion. Fortunately, Albright-Knox captured the event and posted the video, viewable by clicking here, on their YouTube channel.

Private Home Theater
LAVA Systems


LAVA

LAVA Systems, an electronic systems contractor firm serving Central Kentucky and the surrounding area, recently completed an extensive remodel of a mountain retreat that features a second floor entertainment area with an attached private theater. The private theater serves as both the entertainment and surveillance destination for the clients and their extended family.

Digital Projection's HIGHlite Cine 260 works in conjunction with an anamorphic lens system, Lumagen processor and a Stewart Cine-V microperfed screen which was engineered specifically for the room's optimum viewing angles.

LAVA

Designed for top-tier performance and engineered to deliver, the entire addition was painstakingly analyzed, engineered & modified. A decoupled subfloor minimizes the sound transference to the lower floors and the walls and ceilings are decoupled as well for uninterrupted enjoyment. Additionally, the theater room is treated with acoustical devices specified as a result of careful acoustical modeling and analysis for balanced, accurate sound reproduction.

The audio system features Klipsch THX Ultra II loudspeakers, 4 Subwoofers, processing by Integra & AudioControl and amplification by JBL.

LAVA

All of the technology above, as well as the integrated lighting control, are controlled by AMX touchscreens, which also allow for simple control of the multi-window video switching and viewing on the 130" wide 2.35:1 screen.

LAVA

LAVA's craftsmanship has exceeded the client's expectations, with the new room becoming the hub of the home. Additionally, LAVA was recognized at the CEDIA 2012 Awards banquet with a Silver, Technical Design award for the project in the Level III: $142,000 - $270,000 category. Click here to view all the award-winning designs.

Many thanks to the LAVA team for insisting on DP's precision projectors, and congratulations on being recognized for your abilities!

Tech Tip

EDID Technology Overview


EDID stands for Extended Display Identification Data, a standard published by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). Used as part of an interface between a source device and a display, EDID supplies the necessary technological handshake needed for video or computer display. An EDID ROM chip is required to be present in all display devices that include HDMI / DVI support. Its inclusion in HDMI is part of a host of intelligent features that the standard offers. Using the DDC channel and EDID, a Blu-ray player or other source device can request and learn the display limitations of a display or video projector.

EDID contains basic information about a display and its capabilities, including manufacturer information, maximum image size, color depth, Native Resolution, factory pre-set timings, frequency range limits, and character strings for the display and serial number. This information is stored in the display, and then used to communicate with the rest of the system.

When intermediate products are used in the video distribution chain, these "middle" products are responsible for maintaining the integrity of the EDID and the HDCP encryption. These devices include switchers, receivers, HDMI extenders, distribution amps, and video scalers. NOTE: Caution must be taken when using multiple devices in a system, to assure the EDID does not become compromised as this could limit the performance of either the source or the display. An example of this is 3D EDID. If the EDID from the display does not make it all the way back to the source in its complete format, the source may not recognize the display as a 3D device and therefore not send 3D signals.


Digital Projection Tech Tip
With this in mind, here's the tech tip: If a display or a projector is not properly displaying a source that is otherwise known to be working, it is possible that the EDID handshake was interrupted. This can happen when the connection between the display and the source is momentarily interrupted. For example, a bad cable, or a momentary loss of power to a distribution accessory could cause this interruption, as would moving the DVI / HDMI source cable from one display to another.

The simplest way to solve the problem is to reboot the source, making sure the hardwire connection to the display is restored before powering the source back on. On power up, the source submits a renewed EDID query to the display, and upon receipt of the requested data, commences providing a properly formatted signal to suit the display's parameters.

HDMI sources can present another set of digital handshake challenges. In order to protect copyright holders, HDMI sources, such as Blu-ray players, also include HDCP – a complex and sometimes frustrating High Definition Copy Protection standard. Like EDID, sources with HDCP need to see the display at all times -- not just at power up. Any loss of connection to the display is viewed as an attempt to pirate the digital signal, and the HDCP enabled source responds by killing its output – replacing it instead with HDCP snow. To minimize HDCP distribution challenges, make sure all the components in your signal distribution chain are fully qualified per the HDMI and HDCP standards.
