Electrosonic’s Robert Simpson to Provide an Education Session at ISE 2014

InfoComm is offering a variety of training sessions during Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2014. Robert Simpson, co-founder of Electrosonic will be presenting ‘Technology Trends in High Resolution Displays’ on the opening day of the show. This education session is presented by InfoComm International.

Robert, a frequent lecturer on audio-visual topics and author of various publications including ‘Lighting Control Technology and Applications’, will give delegates the opportunity to learn more about the fast moving, high-definition display market and its new applications.

Training, education and networking opportunities are all a key part of the ISE experience. InfoComm International and CEDIA will be offering ISE delegates a wider choice of education sessions than ever seen before.

Robert Simpson says, “We recognize the importance of continuing professional development, and we are pleased to contribute to InfoComm’s education activities which do so much to ensure that AV professionals receive the information and knowledge they need to offer a first class service.”

Robert’s presentation ‘Technology Trends in High Resolution Displays’ focuses on the fast moving HD display market. His talk is based on attendance at events, like the Projection Summit, the Society for Information Display Symposium and on factory visits.

His talk will review a number of topics including high resolution displays, flat panel display technology, illumination technologies and 4K displays.

Robert will begin exploring pixels per inch, pixel pitch, and contrast ratios to outline what constitutes a high resolution display and who needs and benefits from using high resolution displays.

During his presentation, Robert will compare projector illumination technologies and analyze whether the claims of ‘lamp free’ projector performance are justified and if laser illumination will introduce a new era of high brightness projection.

He will consider the state of the current flat panel display technologies e.g. LCD, PDP, OLED, and look at what has happened to emerging technologies like MEMS and Electro-Wetting, and if high resolution LED rivals LCD and projection.

Lastly, he will examine the practical implications of displaying 4K images, assess when they are needed and how they are sourced and delivered.

Robert Simpson’s ‘Technology Trends in High Resolution Displays’ will be held on 4 Feb 2014, 1300-1400 in Room D203.

Electrosonic will be situated in Hall 4, booth U28.
