Istanbul airport installs Absen LED

“Having to install such a large amount of LED in such a secure environment and within a very limited four-month timeframe, was extremely challenging,” said Shaun Xu, Absen’s regional manager. “Astel had technicians on-site 24/7 for many weeks to ensure the project was completed on time and to the highest level.”

The running of this complex visual network is managed by Sistem9 which provided central management and control of all the screens with its signage software S9Vision. Sistem9 also provided price checker, wayfinding, video analytics and exchange rate information flowing of the duty-free area, as well as providing a remote monitoring service and on-site support to ensure all systems operate at peak performance.

Casino Tech Market Exploding Thanks to Sports Betting

Casino tech jobs aren’t just about giving people somewhere to place their bets. They also include infrastructure improvements to drive signals and large-scale displays, among other AV improvements. 

“These projects are definitely not going to proliferate at the flip of a switch,” says Josh Shanahan, president and CEO of SVT.

The sports betting tech market ranges “from a 200-square-foot kiosk to a 300,000-square-foot casino and everything in between,” says Newbury. 

Keeping It Simple In AV Spaces

Corporate projects were traditionally one-off affairs for integrators and consultants, but thanks to globalisation and the push for standardisation, they are becoming far more common, so are global projects now the norm? Naylor-Smith currently 26 different projects for one client on the go right now, while another client has 15 in operation, all across EMEA at the same time.  The majority of project work for Anna Valley’s relatively new (it launched three years ago) integration group (they company made its name in rental and staging) is one-off projects says Shaw, but he expects that to change as the company becomes more established.  Being part of global alliance would help he admits (more on that later), as the global approach by clients is unavoidable.  “Globally most corporates want to rollout a global standard. They are trying to look for replication across all locations.  They want to provide some continuity in each of those locations, so ultimately its makes it’s easier from an integration viewpoint but also from a sales and maintenance viewpoint.  

Low-Cost Technology Brings New Parents Peace-Of-Mind

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit beds at UC Davis Children’s Hospital now come with webcams so parents can watch their babies when they can’t be there.

“Our families come from all over Northern California, some from very far distances and many are here for a long time,” said UC Davis Neonatologist Kristin Hoffman. “Many have to go back and forth for their job or to care for their other kids, and it’s stressful to have a baby in the NICU.”

Projectors Light Up Sydney Opera House

FROM A/V NETWORK

The iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House were transformed into a digital canvas showcasing brilliant and lifelike projections to celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali, and to observe Remembrance Day.

Designed, planned, and executed by Christie’s longstanding Australian partner The Electric Canvas (TEC), the projections were made possible using 14 Christie Crimson 3DLP laser projectors. The projection system was installed in four compact structures at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, some 400 meters from the Opera House on the opposite side of Circular Quay. TEC’s technical team set up and programmed the Crimson projectors with their usual aplomb and efficiency, ensuring pixel-accurate alignment of each projector with the Opera House’s architecture.
