Last week a friend of TripleWide Media (Nicholas Rivero) shared with me a link to one of the coolest video projects I’ve seen yet. I knew I had to share it with our community. We’ve talked about media being used as a vehicle to communicate in the context of an environment… much like an instrument would in a band. Art adds to the collective of anthems to create energy, reveal truth and add a soundtrack to the moment.
However these guys have taken it to a whole new level… they’ve figured out how to make video into a virtual musical instrument. Here’s what I’m talking about:
The project has been (more…)
Thanks to Aaron Laird (a member of our community on Twitter) we learned yesterday that Apple’s new Retina MacBook Pro has the capabilities to support 4 simultaneous Display outputs. This is good news for all of you who are using multi-screen or considering going to it. This could mean less machines, less operators, less processors and ultimately less stress!
Thanks to our friend Nicholas Rivero we have discovered a brand new multi-screen app on the Mac App Store that we had share with everyone. It’s called ArraySync and ArrayShaker.
The first app I want to talk about is called ArraySync. It’s a multi-screen networked Quicktime synchronizer that plays multiple video files at the exact same time over a linked network in any sort of array or multi-screen setup.
It’s only $29.99 for the master, and the client is free (this is the slave only software)… which means for $30 you can have 2 or 200 screens synched in perfect timing. Imagine the possibilities. That’s not all – (more…)
When I go and do seminars around the nation talking about multi-screen and environmental projection on a budget, I get the chance to share with people about the Matrox TripleHead2Go and all the power it can add to your box of tools. However it dawned on me that we have never talked about the device in any focused method here on the blog… So this is the Matrox TripleHead2Go… Explained.
A few weeks ago our team was at National Worship Leader Conference, a great conference by the way, and got to stop by our friends at Roland/Edirol to see what new technology they have to offer and get a peak at any multi-screen technology they may be working on. My friend John Broadhead was able to show me their newest video switcher that actually does dual output and internal edge blending.
It’s called the V-1600HD and is a follow up of the V-440HD which also supported multi-screen. However in the 440, you needed multiple head units to make it happen. This switcher is the first that I have seen that has two separate outputs to allow for many different circumstances. It can be configured to do a “dual-out” or edge blend where you would have one ultra-wide image being switched. Or you can set it up to have two separate outputs to support IMAG on one screen and graphics or PowerPoint on the other screen among many different options as well.
We’ve talked a lot about the TripleHead2Go here and we are still avid fans of what it does and it’s reliability. However we felt like we should talk about a new product that may provide as an alternate to some of you out there who have not had good experiences or just want another option to look into. This is for you – It’s the SideCar Zenview multi-monitor processor.
The multi-screen movement is obviously gaining attention with applications like Environmental Projection, triple wide video walls and various video-staging applications… (more…)
It’s true… you can now do Triple-Wide digital signage on Apple’s iPad! Recently released on the iTunes App store, the app “The Matrix” allows you to connect multiple iPads together and streams graphics and images that you build within the app. Here’s a picture:
The biggest downside to the app as far as we see it is that it won’t play video files… but we believe that this is a step in the right direction and another reason why we believe that multi-screen will continue to become a technology that people want to implement. Imagine how cool it would be if we had a wall (more…)
HP is working on a “triple wide high-definition” television says Hewlett Packard’s Chief Technical Officer Phil McKinney. No need for three screens anymore, lets just widen the horizon of our current television. The crazy thing about this aspect ratio for a TV is that you will be able to see an entire basketball court without having to pan the camera.
McKinney told the audience during the announcement (more…)
