Check out the brand new exhibits at Clark Planetarium at the Gateway Mall in Salt Lake City, Utah! They’ve spent all year planning these new exhibits and we’re proud to have been a part of that!  All together, five new laser projectors were integrated and installed – two NEC projectors, two Sony projectors, and one Epson projector.

Sony Laser Projector VPL-FHZ57

For one exhibit, two Sony laser projectors (VPL-FHZ57) were used with Sony’s ultra short throw lens to project side by side. Together, they created an interactive exhibit that responds to waving arms. When arms are waved on the left projected image, the right image will show how that movement would change the orbit sequence and how it would effect the Earth’s sky.

In one exhibit, the Epson Pro L1100UNL laser projector was used to project full HD motion images of the surface of the sun. Together, with the world’s first 0 offset ultra short throw lens, it creates an incredible exhibit! As you can see, the bottom of the projector is the same height as the very top of the projected image (creating the 0 offset).

In addition, two NEC laser projectors (NP-P502HL) were used in an additional exhibit about black holes. When the projector grid is stepped upon the grid will distort to show a simulation of a black hole.

See all of these new exhibits live! For more information on the Clark Planetarium, visit their website.

AV over IP or Traditional AV

AV Over IP vs Traditional AV: What makes the most sense?

Many have heard phrases such as digital transformation or convergence of AV and IT in the past few years. You might also be thinking, what does that actually mean? No matter which term you might be most familiar with, the sentiment is the same, that the AV industry is in the midst of a dramatic shift. Historically, there have been shifts of this size – such as the switch from analog to digital in media storage, over the air broadcast, telephone communication, and, of course, audio video signals…
