Christie Digital does Projection Mapping

by CCSSouthwest on April 20, 2015

Projection mapping is an exciting and growing creative medium that involves projecting static or animated digital media onto just about any conceivable surface. The technique uses video projectors and specialized software to warp and edge blend projected images so they fit perfectly on complex and often irregularly shaped surfaces, such as buildings, landmarks, monuments, ancient ruins, natural landscapes, water and glass. Projection mapping can be used for advertising, publicity, live concerts, theater, or trade show presentations. It creates a jaw dropping wow factor and memorable experience for any audience.

CD aprilAround the world, projection mapping projects are using Christie Digital technology and solutions. Christie’s Roadie 4K45 is the industry’s brightest lamp illuminated projector, boasting 45,000 lumens, to bring any building to life for any live event. Part of the 3 chip DLP projector series, these projectors use light more efficiently, resulting in brightness uniformity throughout the image and life of the projector. Within the line, Christie offers a wide choice of resolutions and brightness levels, giving superior projection performance for any light conditions or venue size.

Christie offers a unique projection mapping software called Christie Twist to create what’s called a warp mesh, a 3D mesh that matches the physical shape of the screen. This allows the end user to expertly edge blend multiple curved images seamlessly to any projection surface. The software makes it easy to align the virtual content and the physical objects for a spectacular effect.

Christie Digital’s projection and display solutions capture the attention of audiences around the world with the most exciting projection mapping projects. CCS Presentation Systems can help you get started on your next project.

SAFE System Keeps Students Safe

by CCSSouthwest on April 8, 2015

School districts have a duty to provide children with a safe, secure and peaceful environment in which learning can occur. But, unfortunately, school safety is an ever growing concern for our teachers and children. At the gateways of our schools, it is becoming more common to see metal detectors and security guards. Schools have implemented safety plans and prevention programs. But, even with these precautions, safety concerns still exist. Audio Enhancement developed the SAFE System to address safety situations that occur in the classroom.

educamThe SAFE System is an alert notification system designed to work with Audio Enhancement’s classroom amplification systems. Using the built-in alert button on the transmitter, a teacher wearing the pendant microphone can discreetly send a signal for help. An entire network is immediately alerted to respond promptly and appropriately to any situation.

We can’t predict the array of medical and injury-related emergencies (asthma attacks, diabetic crises, epileptic seizures, sudden cardiac death, chemical exposures) that can occur in students and staff at school. And regardless of the severity, all medical incidents need immediate and appropriate response.

Bullying has become a national concern. Not only do we see students threatening each other, but, we see them threatening and attacking teachers. Teachers and administrators have a need to monitor, intervene and correct such behavior before it leads to tragic circumstances.

Fighting such as pushing, shoving and name-calling can escalate into violent situations that affect more than the perpetrators and victims. School personnel need the ability to step in before things get serious and students get seriously hurt.

Weapons brought into the school present the most extreme emergency. These situations are unpredictable as there is no reliable or accurate profile of “the school shooter.” Having an informed staff that can instantly summon authorities is key to the best outcome possible.

Every day, teachers bring every tool at their disposal to help their students learn. Now, Audio Enhancement’s SAFE System brings them the tools to keep their students safe. CCS Presentation Systems specializes in providing innovative technological solutions to educational entities.
