Here at Paragon Multimedia, we are always trying to further our team’s knowledge when it comes to the audio-visual world. Whether it’s newer staff learning the basics, or keeping up to date with the latest trends, we like to keep a close contact with other experts in the industry to help develop out product knowledge.
This time round, help came in the form of Medium’s James Osborne, who managed to break down the mathematical formulas for projection to some of our latest recruits. He also bought along Chris Ault from LG, who updated the team on the latest innovations from the display gurus, including the vivid transparent displays available and this year’s biggest, current talking point – the video wall. Make sure to keep checking in on our Tech Zone for product information from these specialist areas.
Chalene Chandrasiri was representing Peerless AV for the day, who are slowly becoming more and more recognised here in the UK for their large variety of mounts and brackets. Again, video wall compatibilities were brought up and Peerless is likely to be a name you’ll be hearing much more of in the near future.
Thanks again to our visitors! If you would like to partner up with us to teach us more about your products please feel free to contact us.

Midwich’s technical division True Colours joined forces with many of their manufacturers on Friday to cover all aspects of a technology that continues to get bigger and bolder – the video wall. With multi-display systems continuing to spread throughout sectors other than corporate and education, the distributors bought together Dexon, NEC, Exterity, Peerless AV and AMX to discuss all elements of the technology at the Runnymede Hotel in Egham, UK.
Iain Campbell, Sales Director at True Colours, opened the morning explaining that video walls can be used for more than just digital signage, as they have personally dealt with the army and banks, proving its use in centralising monitoring. With this array of opportunities, video wall sales are expected to reach 12,800 this year, with that increasing further to 16,700 in 2014. There are certain factors which are imperative to creating a successful display system and many clients may not realise this. Dexon were on hand to explain their latest wall controller technology which offers an easy input. NEC had a wide range of screens on display with very narrow bezels and advanced fan technology to avoid overheating and prolong life usage, including the 3×3 display being used for the presentation.
With IPTV becoming a popular part of digital signage and therefore video walls as well, leading networkers Exterity provided a lesson in how internet television can be streamed across a building without using up all your bandwidth. AMX’s Jeremy Slater provided a success story to demonstrate how key personalised control systems can be for large displays, while more recent recruit Peerless AV brought mounting to the foreground, as many clients forget the importance of a secure and adjustable bracket.
After LG’s 3D video wall grabbing so much attention at ISE this year, it’s apparent that 2013 could be the year for the video wall, so if you would like more information on how it could benefit your company, please do not hesitate to contact us.
