CAMERA

Toshiba's IK-52V (1/2in.) and IK-53V (1/3in.) “ice-cube-size” CCD cameras feature VGA resolution; shutter speed selection from 1/60sec. to 1/100,000sec.; non-interlaced shuttering for crisp, clean images at high speeds; an SNR of 60dB; and an internal/external (HD/VD) synchronizing system with an HD/VD input/output that can be easily selected via the rear-panel switch. The video graphics array outputs to either a frame grabber for data storage or directly to a VGA monitor for immediate review of the captured imagery. With the manual gain set to maximum, the minimum subject illumination setting is 1 lux at f1.4 sensitivity.

SWITCHER CONTROL SOFTWARE

Analog Way's Manager Stage software is based on Medialon Manager software and provides control of Analog Way seamless switchers, including the newly introduced Di-VentiX, the EventiX, and the Octo range. An intuitive user interface enables visualization of the projection area and easy preview and scheduling of images and transition effects. The software stores transition effects as presets or sequences that can be launched live during the presentation or edited live on the preview screen before being displayed on the main screen.

DIGITAL SIGNAGE SYSTEM

Noventri's SignFlash Touch adds touchscreen technology to the company's SignFlash dynamic digital signage system. When SignFlash Touch is partnered with the Automatic Viewer Detection (AVD) module, it will respond to a viewer's presence and switch from a standard layout to a specialized layout or an interactive touchscreen.

TELEPROMPTER

Ikan's PT1000 portable teleprompter kit mounts to a camera's hotshoe and features XGA/VGA inputs, as well as onscreen display controls and infrared remote controls. The teleprompter also features horizontal and vertical flip, a built-in speaker, an earphone jack, and an anti-glare screen. The 1lb. unit is light enough to be shoulder mounted, eliminating the need to deal with the bulky mirrors of traditional teleprompters.
