Super Bowl 54 has come & gone…how did your team do? Hope you didn’t over-do with chicken wings & chili! This annual behemoth event conjures-up things very specific to the match-up, including outrageous commercials, a half-time show, & of course – VERY IMPRESSIVE video screens! As we are all quite aware, video monitor technology has had meteoric improvement since the early days of Superbowl #1 in 1967 in Los Angeles – & continues to improve with each passing year. From the big, bulky “furniture-esque” cathode-ray-tubed sets of the 60s & 70s – to today’s slender, modern, wall-mounted LCD & LED screens – we have become truly spoiled in our viewing habits…both at home & at the office. According to Planar – one of the AV Industry’s leading Video display manufacturers – “Direct view LED video wall technology is becoming increasingly popular, due to its ability to deliver seamless images, scalability to any size or shape, and excellent optimal characteristics that make video wall content look great from any angle.”
Modern video technology has not only made it possible for us to feel like we’re sitting right there at the stadium for the big game – but at the office, it has also brought us closer to our colleagues & clients, no matter where they are in the world. The meeting rooms of today – whether they be large conference rooms or smaller huddle spaces – have become standard fare for most corporate enterprises…especially those who are building new collaboration solutions. Captus Systems makes it our main mission to stay on top of the latest video technology so we can pass-along the best there is to offer to our clients.
According to InfoComm – the Audio-Visual industry’s largest annual technology conference – “When we look back at the 2019 AV market in general and InfoComm 2019 in particular, it could be that we’ll all walk away saying, ‘That was the year of LED.’” And speaking of the best in video screen tech, here are just a few of the recommendations of note from industry experts, as was reported by our friends at Commercial Integrator:
