Experimental display lets glasses wearers ditch the specs.


We all spend a lot of their day staring at a screen, so it's no surprise that nearly all of us are blind without glasses or contact lenses. But wouldn't it be great if we could give our eyes a break and just stare at the screen without the aid of corrective lenses? That's the idea behind an experimental display that automatically adjusts itself to compensate for your lack of ocular prowess, enabling you to sit back and relax without eyewear. It works by placing a light-filtering screen in front of a regular LCD display that breaks down the picture in such a way that, when it reaches your eye, the light rays are reconstructed as a sharp image. The prototype and lots more details about the method will be shown off at SIGGRAPH next month, after which, its creators, a team from Berkeley, MIT and Microsoft, plan to develop a version that'll work in the home and, further down the line, with more than one person at a time.

Sumou presentation set.

When Saudi infrastructure giant Sumou hosted a gala dinner promoting the new city of Murooj Jeddah, it needed a set that could display video presentations, dazzle potential investors and reflect the company's technology-driven ethos. The set was the canvas for a set of bespoke animations depicting life in the new city, plus traditional video content. At the end, the centre panel slid away to reveal a live actor who stepped down from the set to present a gift to a VIP


Peres Academic Center Video Mapping.

Created as a part of the gala event for the new Peres Academic Center. the guests of honer was the former USA president Mr Bill Clinton and the Israeli president Mr Shimon Peres. The challenge was to create a real 3D mapping filling with a point of view of 45 degree from the facade. the hole facade moved and came a live with a supreme 3D animation and a brilliant design and compositing.

LG 18" transparent & rollable displays in action


LG has posted videos of its 18-inch transparent and flexible OLED panels after announcing their development last week. The flexible panel can be rolled up to a radius of 3cm with no detriment to the display and LG says panels that exceed 50 inches will be possible in the future. The transparent panel has 30% transmittance, which LG claims offers a vast improvement to the approximate 10% offered by existing LCD panels.

In one video LG demonstrates the flexible panel in operation while being rolled and unrolled. The other shows content on a transparent panel with the presenter clearly visible behind the screen.

"We are confident that by 2017, we will successfully develop an Ultra HD flexible and transparent OLED panel of more than 60 inches, which will have transmittance of more than 40 per cent and a curvature radius of 100R, thereby leading the future display market," said In-Byung Kang, senior vice president and head of the R&D Center at LG Display.

The digital art world on your wall

Digital photo frames are one of those product categories that seemed like a good idea at the time. As it turned out, no one really wanted a low-resolution LCD screen in their living room that needed to be plugged into a chunky power brick just to display pictures of their kids. New York-based startup Electric Objects believes it's fixed that problem with the EO1, "a framed high-definition screen and integrated computer that hangs on your wall and brings art from the Internet into your home." Or, as founder Jake Levine calls it, a screen that doesn't "make you feel like shit."

The EO1 is a 23-inch HD matte display that runs off an Cortex-A9 processor, more than enough to handle animated GIFs and javascript visualizations. You can load any image you want off the web, but the EO1 is really meant to be used with a digital storefront that offers images from both cultural organizations like the New York Public Library and the Museum of the Moving Image, and digitally native outlets like Digg, and Giphy. But unlike previous attempts at creating a frame for digital art you can't take images off an SD card or load them via USB. You can't even connect a keyboard or mouse -- the EO1 is meant to be accessed via the company's iOS and Android apps.

Architectural Mapping.

ProjectionArtworks indoor team is used to mapping on to unusual things.

Posted by Emily Gibson 

We’ve projected on pretty much everything, from cars to shoes, bicycles and bottles. Often we design custom sets to map, but sometimes it’s possible to use the interior architecture of a venue as a projection canvas.

Flight simulator for Hannover Airport.

The flight simulator featuring the exhibition dedicated to the world of aviation from Hanover Airport has replaced its old projection system and has installed two lasers 3LCD VPL-FHZ55 Sony getting better resolution, a wider field of vision and

Proyectores Sony simulador aeropuerto Hanover

Hannover Airport, also known as Hannover-Langenhagen, is the largest of Lower Saxony and manages an air traffic of more than five million passengers per year.
From the pilot's seat in a fully equipped and functional cabin, aircraft lovers can virtually control these appliances for one hour.
The first simulator was acquired by Airport Hannover in 2008, a system using images of three projectors to display the virtual cockpit view, which represented a significant maintenance costs as the lamps of the three devices had to be replaced with frequency and brightness of the image was not guaranteed.
In this situation, the airport was proposed to replace the projection system with one that could keep pace with the long periods of operation of the simulator. It was also necessary to simultaneously reproduce every detail of the track and the sky with high sharpness and contrast to give more realism to the feeling of flying.
For a panoramic view, operators installed a concave screen of 6.15 meters wide and 1.80 meters high on the front of the cockpit windows. Therefore, seeking projectors had to be able to generate a geometrically correct image on a curved surface.
To meet the requirements needed exposure 3LCD Projectors Sony VPL-FHZ55 that were supplied by the service provider AVI Studio and worked with the manufacturer for installation of the two teams was decided.
Laser Sony 3LCD projectors combine a highly efficient source of laser light with the latest 3LCD panel technology BrightEra Sony.
Furthermore, Sony has developed a constant brightness according to the VPL-FHZ55, which allows it to remain constant to 3,000 lumens along the life cycle of the laser light source.

Proyectores Sony simulador aeropuerto Hanover

Various factors that determined the Hanover Airport is decided by the Sony VPL-FHZ55 projectors. First, the total cost of ownership (TCO) proved to be more advantageous than a conventional light projector. While conventional projectors lamps should be replaced after waiting a thousand hours maximum, the laser light source of the VPL-FHZ55 can reach 20,000 hours.
Was also critical of the high resolution WUXGA 1920 x 1200 pixels, allowing play images in full HD on an area of ​​6.15 meters wide and 1.80 meters high with only two projectors instead of the previous three.
Combined with a light output of 3000 lumens bright images without individual pixels are produced, although the extent of the screen.
With this technology, it is possible to overlap the surfaces of both projections with a balanced lighting and, unlike the systems placed next to each other, creating an integrated across the width of the screen. Thanks to the image warping, its geometry can be corrected concave surfaces seamlessly to deliver a totally natural projection.

FLexible OLED DIsplays for German Car Makers and KIA’s Premium Vehicle K900

There are rumors that LG-Display will supply flexible OLED Displays to german car manufacturers like Mercedes Daimler Benz LG has the goal to stregthen its presence in the automotive display market. In 2013 the company posted 500 billion won in sales of automotive displays. LG Display plans to deliver their displays to the market of premium vehicles.

Along with supplying displays to Europe’s premium car manufacturers including Daimler Benz since 2003, LG have recently began to supply leading global automotive manufacturers such as Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, KIA and GM, distinguishing ourselves in the automotive display market. In 2013 the korean company started to deliver displays for the KIA K900 for the central display device and entertainment device in the back seat. LG plans to achieve 500 million dollar in 2014 (LCD), $1 billion in 2016, and $2 billion in 2018. This would translate to 100% growth every two years. LG want to introduce also transparent OLED Displays to the car industry. With transparent and flexible OLED Display technology they can reach the goal to become the leading automotive display company. The car industry love OLEDs because they can be delivered flexible, transparent, lighter, thinner better quality than LCD DIsplays.

Anna = Virtual and Interactive Promotion.

The virtual promoter combines online and offline communication, thus setting a new digital and interactive trend in visual merchandising. Holographically depicted digital content at the POS lets customers make contact with a retailer outside at the shop window. They can use gestures to interact with and control the virtual promoter. The vendor benefits from increased traffic, while customers can obtain product information from a multimedia presentation and even make purchases outside store hours. Industry insiders see this technology as the next evolutionary stage in digital signage, dubbing it “interactive signage”. This, they say, is the “killer app” in the digitization of the point of sale that is now getting underway.

Images created with nano-pixels


A group of Oxford University scientists have accidentally created a new display technology -- one that could enable a new era of smart glasses, bendable displays and even artificial retinas. The team refers to its discovery as 'nano-pixels;' it's a tiny sandwich of phase change material and transparent electrodes that change color when given a tiny jolt of current. These stacks can be used to draw tiny images, like the examples above, each one smaller than the width of a human hair. "We didn't set out to invent a new kind of display," explained research lead Harish Bhaskaran, his team was just exploring the relationship between the electrical and optical properties of phase change materials. Creating nano-pixels just sort of happened along the way.

"Because the layers that make up our devices can be deposited as thin films, they can be incorporated into very thin flexible materials," Bhaskaran says. "We have already demonstrated that the technique works on flexible Mylar sheets around 200 nanometers thick." Eventually, the technology could be used to embed displays in windshields or eyeglasses. Bhaskaran says it can even be used to mimic the photoreceptor cells in human eyes, eventually making it possible to create an artificial retina.

Oxfords team is confident that the tech will be able to display almost any color, and has filed a patent for the technology under Isis Innovation, the University's commercialization arm. It's still too early to say when this discovery will bear fruit, but it could be the foundation for a new kind of high resolution, embeddable and extremely low-power display.

6 Kilometer Druck auf 4.000 Paneelen.

Ein 40 Meter hoher Bogen spannt sich über die Größe eines Fußballfeldes. Im Oktober 2014 eröffnet in Rotterdam eine Markthalle der Superlative, die 100 Marktstände, 15 Lebensmittelgeschäfte, 8 Restaurants und 228 Apartments – die Hälfte davon mit Blick in die Halle – beherbergen wird.

motivDie Decke des Gebäudes erinnert an die imposanten Malereien der Sixtinischen Kapelle in Rom. Ein Kreativteam rund um den niederländischen Künstler Arno Coenen gestaltete das Motiv „Füllhorn“, das die Decke ziert. Es präsentiert den Besuchern alles was man essen und auf dem neuen Markt kaufen kann.

TS Visuals hat die imposante 11.000 qm große Fläche im Sublimationsverfahren auf zwei Millimeter starke Aluminium-Paneele gedruckt. Es entstanden 4.000 Einzelstücke, die dann Stück für Stück in die Fassade eingesetzt wurden. Da war volle Konzentration gefragt, damit am Ende das Muster auch stimmt. Beim ein oder anderen wurden dabei sicher alte Puzzle-Erfahrungen wach.

The world’s largest outdoor LED ticker

Bahrain Bourse has partnered with Wavetec, a provider of LED display solutions, to install the world’s largest outdoor LED ticker at the Bahrain Financial Harbor Complex building in the Middle East.

According to the investment company, the ticker at Bahrain Bourse displays real-time financial information and also serves as an effective means of marketing and communication.

The massive LED ticker features 16-bit color and 8-bit automatic dimming capabilities to allow for high-quality video and image viewing from a distance and displays information such as market rates, shares and news. The ticker is integrated with the Bahrain Bourse trading engine and has the capability to disseminate information in milliseconds, the company said.

Jaguar Land Rover projects driving data directly on the windshield.

The Virtual Windscreen concept beams hazard, speed and navigation graphics to the driver's view, adding both racing line and braking guidance alongside ghost cars and virtual cones for more performance-oriented activities. What's more, the automaker also has a gesture control system in the works, aiming to limit the amount of physical button pushing. "We have identified which functions still need to be controlled by physical buttons and which could be controlled by gesture and carefully calibrated motion sensors," said Director of Research and Technology Dr. Wolfgang Epple. "The system is currently being tested on a number of features including sunblinds, rear wipers and satellite navigation maps. It has the potential to be on sale within the next few years." And on top of those two items, researchers are looking into ways of replacing rear view mirrors with cameras and virtual displays. Captured images are shown on a 3D instrument cluster with the help of eye-tracking devices to provide the needed views. Of course, there's no guarantee that any of this will make into your next F-Type coupe or LR4, but who know, fingers crossed

When is 4K content coming ?


The difference between full HD (1080p) and Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) is dramatic. When viewed from a distance or up close, you can see the difference.
Like a tsunami, we expect Ultra HD content to swell dramatically in the later half of this year. 35 mm celluloid are being converted into 4k masters. 4k (or 6k or 8k) cameras are proliferating and video artists are experimenting to create amazing commercial content. Plus, the PC graphics cards are getting more affordable, meaning running a desktop across a 4k display, showing digital photography, or running applications in Ultra HD is here today. Add to this the announcements around true 4k at 60 Hz media players for prices less than $500 and the world of possibilities is opening up fast!

Tablet verdrijft het boek uit de klas.


De brugpieper met de loodzware boekentas verdwijnt. Over 5 jaar hebben brugklassers alleen nog een tablet in hun tas, voorspellen de grote uitgevers van schoolboeken.

Zeker een kwart van de scholen voert komend jaar al het gebruik van tablets in, al dan niet op proef. De opkomst gaat sneller dan verwacht, zegt Mark van Hussen, manager ePublishing bij uitgeverij Malmberg. 'Er is sprake van een flinke versnelling in de markt doordat er beter en goedkoper wifi op scholen beschikbaar is. En de apparaten, de tablets, zijn nu ook geschikt. Vroeger had je de computerlokalen die je als docent moest reserveren, daarna kwamen de laptopkarren. Allemaal niet handig. De tablet neemt al die drempels weg. Leerlingen zitten niet meer verstopt achter een scherm en ze hoeven nergens meer heen.'

Grote educatieve uitgeverijen als Wolters-Noordhoff en Malmberg hebben al hun boeken inmiddels ook digitaal beschikbaar. Nu de tablets gemeengoed zijn geworden, komen er ook nieuwe digitale lesmethoden. 'Digitaal onderwijs was nog te veel boeken achter glas. Nu kunnen we nadenken wanneer we tekst vervangen door audiofragmenten of beeld. Dat zijn heel nieuwe didactische concepten. Je kunt opnieuw uitvinden hoe je het best een vreemde taal leert,' zegt Hussen. Hij verwacht overigens niet dat het boek helemaal uit de klas verdwijnt. 'Een tekening bij biologie doe je nog steeds het best met potlood en papier.'

Malmberg maakt bij de nieuwe digitale lesmethoden ook gebruik van smartphones - 90 procent van de brugklassers heeft er een.


Virtual Reality-Video Projection.

In 2014 Virtual Reality (VR) will be introduced to an undoubtedly fast growing group of users worldwide. With announced introductions of VR goggles like the Oculus Rift the consumer market will soon get acquainted with VR when using these goggles for playing video games in a more immersive way at home. Advanced full body motion tracking systems are even expanding the possibilities of VR when people are able to walk around or fly through a virtual world.

In anticipation of the coming period NuFormer, famous for its 3D video mapping projections, has connected Virtual Reality to video projection that can be mapped on anything. As a result, the VR experience of one to four people in a specific VR environment now can be shared with an audience. For example in front of a building where the projection content is projected on.

The viewers on that venue will be able to see the virtual environment that is similar to what the players see in their goggles while tracked in a VR environment. Maybe you even like to have your audience to have a spectacular overview of the VR world the players are in. This and much more can now be realized.
why isn't the rift pluged in ? : )

Reaction NuFormer = Good spot! The Oculus Rift is plugged into the Asus wavi for wireless HDMI & USB, using an external battery pack. However in this video the cables and equipment have been removed in post as this solution still looks a bit cumbersome and unattractive. Soon we will replace this setup with a smaller wireless solution which can be mounted onto the Rift itself (except for the battery pack, which you will still need to carry in your pocket).
