news Absen Launches New DooH Series at ISE 2020 LED display manufacturer Absen has unveiled its new AW Series for the Digital Out-Of-Home (DooH) advertising market. The AW Series is suitable for fixed installation and can also be applied to light boxes and smart light poles to cater for the growing trend of LED display and 5G technology integration, helping to usher in a new wave of intelligent applications. The AW Series will be available in two standard sizes: 500mm x 500mm (w x h) and 500mm x 750mm (w x h) panels. With a brightness of 5,000 nits, a refresh rate of 3,840Hz and available in two pixel pitches (2.8mm and 3.9mm), the AW Series delivers outstanding image quality and ensures excellent visibility, even at short viewing distances of 3-5 metres, making it well-suited to street advertising. The AW Series utilises an intelligent auto-light sensor control system to detect ambient light levels to automatically adjust the screen brightness for optimal performance. Its IP65/IP54 waterproof rating and weatherability design means the AW Series can withstand heavy rain, strong winds and challenging environments between -20° and +50°. The product is also highly energy efficient. Absen can provide a turnkey solution, which includes LED display, frame and controller; making it easy to install, transport and maintain. As the product can be easily fixed to light poles and in light boxes, it is ideally suited for bus shelters and other types of street furniture applications. And,as 5G technology becomes more readily available, the demand for ‘Smart City’ applications is set to increase exponentially to facilitate city operations and transportation management. The AW Series offers different options to satisfy a variety of dimensions and purposes. For fixed installation, the panel can be rotated, providing more possibility and flexibility of installation. As an outdoor series, the series supports frameless installation, saving the cost of binding materials. The AW Series can fulfil functions like remote publishing, cluster control and safety protection to make information dissemination and advertising more convenient. Users can easily and efficiently manage the content online by releasing video and images via computer. To ensure data safety, the content is then encrypted during transmission and locked at the terminal. When users need to display the same content on individual light poles, AW supports simultaneous display management to achieve a real ‘wow’ effect. Automatic monitoring makes management intelligent with feedback and any alarms sent automatically. n 10 KIOSK solutions news News AVMI heading Chooses 4 Peerless-AV Gento opti sed quodisque etur re de AV ne technology nemporia company quasped Peerless- evelis non comni ut officiunt estrum, ommodig AV and integrator AVMI partnered enducimo et que provid et ut que to deliver a striking 8x4 direct ipsam etur video as nonet view LED wall lit in reption AVMI’s serchil magnatin nonem nonet ut and lant, ut res Sunbury-on-Thames HQ autestrum qui cor reperiatem qui vo- Network Operations Centre (NOC). lentia sit opta con core odi cus dolorae The LED wall presents a platform laborpor alibus, optatist to demonstrate AVMI’s magnis project aut ad capabilities moluptatior samet vel from concept maximen to delivery istium aut everum adion and is an example rem of a exerum seamless rempore pediae cum voluptassed LED installation using Samsung IF et adis dolupta tusdaepudit Series Smart nimagna LED Ssgnage and a ad quis at perum con nobit es rae.

The AVMI project team plans to display the original renders, engineering drawings, schematics and elevations for the video wall so that when customers visit, they can now see an example of a best practice installation and the scope of AVMI’s technical capabilities. Stuart Davidson, Technical Services Director, and Kaz Varma, Project Manager at AVMI, were responsible for the installation and product specification. Both Samsung and Peerless-AV are key partners of AVMI, having worked on various major LED projects globally, hence it made sense for both vendors to collaborate on this HQ installation. Samsung IF020H 2mm LED cabinets were fitted in-wall in an 8x4 configuration supported by a Peerless-AV custom made floor-to- ceiling mount solution. The mount substructure and components were laid out in a network infrastructure room behind the wall and built up in just one day. n Telestream to Make Leadership Transition Global provider of digital media tools, quality monitoring and workflow solutions, Telestream, has announced that Dan Castles, one of the company’s original founders, has returned as CEO to lead the company through its next phase of growth.
