ISE Ramps up Digital Signage

Publish date:

By David Keene

Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), incorporating InfoComm Europe, is preparing for its Feb. 2-4 Show and Conference in Amsterdam, and it promises a lot of digital signage activity. Too much new product news from ISE to list here, with new gear from Prysm, Christie, projectiondesign, SMART Technologies, Crestron, Christie, Harris, Barco, and Sharp. Safe to say that Digital signage continues to grow in significance for ISE, so much so that a second dedicated area for these technologies has been added in Hall 10 after the main Digital Signage Hall, Hall 12, sold out.

Prysm should generate a lot of buzz at the show. Dana Corey and team will be taking the wraps off its LPD technology at ISE, booth # 11F41. The booth will be invitation only and Prysm asks key international channel partners to contact them for a demonstration and meeting time (

Just a few product highlights for ISE:

Prysm will showcase its LPD technology at ISE, booth # 11F41, Feb. 2–4 in Amsterdam. The booth will be invitation only and Prysm asks key international channel partners to contact them for a demonstration and meeting time.

ONELAN will be showcasing Digital Signage, Video Streaming, Lesson Capture and its latest Digital Signage IPTV Gateway products for education and illustrating how these solutions can enhance the learning experience.

Christie will be holding a press conference to introduce MicroTiles to the European market at ISE in Amsterdam.
From a product development perspective, the new MicroTile is important because it represents the first real introduction of a product for the commercial AV market that features a “lampless” projector. Texas Instruments DLP has been developing video projector prototypes that use LED phosphors as the light source, in place of a conventional lamp. But the units available from DLP projector manufacturers have been a bit slow in coming to market, because of standard economy of scale factors, and also because the LED-light source projectors are not yet as bright as conventional projectors. But they are getting better and brighter all the time, as yesterday’s demo by Christie in NY demonstrated.

Epson will showcase its r range of video projectors at Integrated Systems Europe 2010. Reinforcing its position as the world leader in the video projector market , Epson will have on display the Epson EB-Z8000 series, including the EB-Z8000WU - the world’s first WUXGA 3LCD projector, available since September 2009 - and the EB-Z8050W, which is Epson’s brightest projector ever with a White and Colour Light Output of 7,000 lumens that will be demonstrated for the first time at ISE.
