Larger-sized Screens Enables Public Display Revenue to Grow 18% CAGR.

In contrast to stable or declining consumer TV sales, worldwide public display revenues are forecast to reach a healthy compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.2 percent from 2016 to 2021, according to IHS Markit.

The global public display market, which includes public-display monitors and public-display TVs used in digital signage and professional applications, can be expected to grow from $6 billion in 2016 to $13.7 billion by 2021 in revenues, and from 3.1 million units to 5.1 million units in shipments during the same period, IHS Markit says.

“In the long term, public display revenue growth will be fueled by high demand for larger-sized displays, particularly in the education and corporate space,” said Sanju Khatri, director, digital signage and professional video at IHS Markit. IHS Markit predicts that by 2019 more than half of the revenue of public display market will originate from display sizes greater than 65 inches. “Displays sized 65 inches are the most popular category, and those between 80 inches to 89 inches are showing fastest revenue growth in the education and corporate collaboration verticals,” Khatri said.

The use of technology in the education sector is set to increase significantly from an upsurge in digital or video-based learning. The education sector is widely implementing learning aids such as interactive flat panels in an attempt to seek greater interaction and engagement with students in the classroom. Similarly, with the increased affordability of larger-sized displays, LCDs have become by far the most installed displays in the corporate environment. Conference room displays are considered an important asset for collaboration and communication in today’s geographically dispersed workforce.

Sephora Store - El Triangle - Barcelona - Spain.

The Sephora concept store appears to have a long corridor leading to the cosmetics shop flanked by a series of tall, fine-pitch LED panels, and then stacked LCDs around the sales floor. Among the many bells and whistles, and experiential elements, is a giant kiddie slide so adults can zoom down to the “Trend Zone” instead of walking down the steps or riding the escalator.


Oslo Transit Shelter Serves Coffee If You Strike Up A Conversation.

This is a bit of a stunt, but also a nice, gentle heartstring-tugger of a digital out of home campaign done in Oslo, Norway for a volunteer organization. The volunteer website Frivillig.no is trying to encourage people to spend time talking to lonely and shut-in senior citizens through a live camera and screen set-up in a JC Decaux-managed transit shelter. I’m not quite sure how the coffee cup just shows up (my guess is the thing has a field marketer hanging around), but those people who sit down and strike up a conversation with the old fella get a coffee poured, with the dispenser synced with the video-cam feed showing the man pouring.

Montreal Avudo digital projection show / Canada

On Sept. 2, Compagnia Finzi Pasca’s Montreal Avudo, a nighttime outdoor digital projection show celebrating Montreal’s 375th birthday, came to an end after 149 performances, with nearly 250,000 people having seen it for free since it opened in mid-May.

The larger-than-life show, which projected images on an 11-storey shipping container tower and on jet-powered ‘water walls’ along the St. Lawrence River, was so popular that two additional series were added over the course of the summer, with free tickets quickly snapped up each time.

Daniele Finzi Pasca, the company’s creator and co-founder, was present for the finale, both to thank the public for embracing the show and to present a short behind-the-scenes video about how the show was put together.

3D Ad testing.

Buzz 3D Virtual Ad Pre Testing technology provides a Controlled approach in Virtual Reality for measuring Ad Formats and Creatives, resulting in consistent outputs. Confounding issues are removed as every respondent interacts with a billboard and/or creative at exactly the same moment, in exactly the same circumstances, which means that meaningful comparisons can be achieved. This forms a baseline for judging the degree of visibility achieved by a specific advertising surface (paper, digital, backlit), location or Creative which is impossible to replicate in the real world. This technology was chosen as the Virtual Solution for the prestigious European Consortium AM4DOOH research project involving FEPE and 4 of the world's largest outdoor advertisers (JC Decaux, ClearChannel International, Exterion Media and APG SGA). You can see more about AM4DOOH in a presentation by Neil Eddleston, Director General JC Decaux OneWorld, at youtube.com/watch?v=2Wkx9JkrT7s.

Holo-Gauze create epic show DJ Eric Prydz benefited from some extraordinary signage that debuted at his EPIC 5.0, London Victoria Park gig in late May. The holographic 3D display was produced by Holo-Gauze, and aided Realtime Environmental Systems (RES) and creative director for the show, Liam Tomaszewski, in creating the large hologram.

The displays included a spaceman and a galaxy, which was projected in front of around 15,000 fans.  Four Panasonic RZ31K 30, 000 lumen laser projectors beamed the pictures onto a Holo-Gauze screen, which was in front of Eric Prydz, amazing his audience.

As well as the large holograms, there was a V-shaped 2304 x 576 pixel LED display was placed at the back of the stage, with another V-shaped screen forming a cube, playing animations around the DJ. The pixels on the front screen allowed the audience to see Prydz when he was lit up, despite the animations also showing in front of him.

Holo-Gauze is ideal for live events such as this, allowing live performers to be situated behind our near-visible gauze while visually stunning holographic effects appear to float in front of them. Holo-Gauze makes the seemingly impossible, possible”

Stuart Warren-Hill, Holo-Gauze inventor and Holotronica owner and chief executive, comments: “I was absolutely delighted when RES again asked us to help with Eric’s latest EPIC show.

“Holo-Gauze is ideal for live events such as this, allowing live performers to be situated behind our near-visible gauze while visually stunning holographic effects appear to float in front of them. Holo-Gauze makes the seemingly impossible, possible.”

Holo-Gauze were also part of Beyoncé’s Grammy Awards performance, as well as Prydz’s previous EPIC 3.0 show at Madison Square Garden

Here is a demo of Holo-Gauze in Las Vegas June 2016. The test shows the excellent invisibility and the wide viewing angle.

RED reveals - the holographic smartphone display.

source; www.engadget.com

When RED Camera first announced its crazy $1,200 Hydrogen smartphone with a "holographic display," a lot of folks wondered how that would actually work. Now, CEO Jim Jannard has revealed that RED is creating the screen in partnership with a company called Leia Inc. (yes, like that Leia). A spin-off from Hewlett-Packard labs, it calls itself "the leading provider of light field holographic display solutions for mobile," and the key words "light field" gives us a pretty good idea as to how it works

Light field displays use multiple layers of LCDs with a "directional backlight," letting you see two different views of the same object with each eye, producing a 3D effect. In practice, when you rotate a display, objects like buildings would appear to project from the screen, as shown in the video below. The effect shows a lot of promise for virtual and augmented reality headsets, but for external displays, viewing angles have been limited so far.

Leia says it "leverages recent breakthroughs in nano-photonic design and manufacturing to provide a complete lightfield 'holographic' display solution for mobile devices." It says the tech can create a holograph-like effect, "while preserving the normal operation of the display." In other words, if you turn off the 4D part, it'll work like a regular smartphone screen. RED hasn't showed the tech to many folks yet, but MKBHD's Marcus Brownlee did see it, and said he was "pretty impressed," adding that it wasn't perfect because of issues like light bleeding and stuttering for 4D gaming.

To produce content for the screen in the form of .h4v files, Jannard has told Redusers that "you can generate .h4v (holographic 4-View) by shooting 4 cameras (we are building solutions from consumer to professional), or by converting 3D to .h4v (very easy), or converting 2D to 3D (very hard) and then to .h4v."

RED has formed a "strategic partnership" with Leia and made an unnamed investment in the company, and Jannard will join its board of directors. It says the smartphone will arrive in the first half of 2018, and functional prototypes are supposed to be ready in the coming months.

PlayNitride aims to start trial production of Micro-LED displays by the end of 2017.

PlayNitride's CEO, Charles Li, says that Micro-LED displays are not as challenging as originally expected, and the company now aims to start trial production of Micro-LED displays in the second half of 2017. The company has mass transfer and placement yield rates of over 99% in its lab.

In PlayNitride's R&D setup, it takes about 10 seconds to transfer and place 200,000 LEDs - which means that a 5" panel will take only 10 minutes to produce. However the cost for a single smartphone panel could reach about $300 - much higher than the cost of even the highest-end flexible OLED. Possible applications where Micro-LED displays could succeed commercially at this stage include smartwatches, VR / AR, automotive and transparent displays.

Taiwan-based PlayNitride was established in June 2014 to research and develop Nitride related materials and applications. The fabless company is now focusing on GaN based MicroLEDs - it is branding its technology as PixelLED displays. According to reports PlayNitride aims to start producing micro-LED chips towards the end of 2017. The company says it can reach a pixel density of 1,500 PPI.

BMW Gets Creative With Projection Mapping On 7-Series

The BMW 7-Series will take center stage at key locations across the globe in elaborately-staged displays in which precisely sized images are projected on the body of the flagship sedan. Those visiting BMW Welt in Munich, the BMW Brand Stores in Paris & Brussels and the BMW Driving Center in Seoul will be able to enjoy this combination of art and technology that will set new standards for customer experience, according to the automaker.

In order to further demonstrate the qualities of BMW’s flagship model, the 7-Series, the German brand turned to something called “Experiential Marketing” to tell the story of the car on the car. The installation itself uses advanced projection methods to visualize the design process for the 7-Series. Visitors will be able to follow the evolution of the car in the span of two minutes as powerful projectors will map perfectly-sized images onto a real-life model.

“Our aim is to bring visitors closer to the BMW brand through new and interactive experiences,” said Claudette Pohl, project manager for experiential marketing for international brand formats. “In this project, we have found the ideal combination of ground-breaking digital ‘luxury storytelling’ and strong aesthetic appeal. As the BMW flagship and technology platform, this innovative approach to both content and medium suits the BMW 7 Series perfectly.” In order to create the exhibits, technology experts in the fields of virtual and augmented reality spent several weeks making sure every pixel was perfectly positioned to fit the car’s design lines. The projection itself is said to be unaffected by lighting conditions and full-quality images can be mapped directly onto the vehicle’s paint even in daylight, which is a first in this field.

Spline: Audiovisual laser installation.

Robert Henke in his post-Ableton life has continued to see his stock rise on the media art scene. 120 meters of thin fabric are suspended from the ceiling to form a curved curtain. Four lasers in the corners of the room each project sixteen sharp beams of light onto it. The curtain’s shape has been calculated using the mathematical principle of spline interpolation. By tracing the surface with the laser beams, a complex geometric figure of 64 intersecting lines emerges, built of light and fog. Movements are synchronised with sonic events. Sound and lasers are controlled in realtime by an algorithmic process, creating an infinite number of variations over the course of the exhibition period.
