June 14 - 16th saw the PufferTeam take up residence at The Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida to join the ranks of 1000 exhibitors from the Pro AV world at InfoComm 2017. Hosted by our partners at Stewart Filmscreen, we brought along our PufferSphere Touch 600 and PufferDome Touch 600 and a selection of new, dynamic digital content to showcase our innovative solutions to the 44,000+ attendees.
The show has always been a big draw for integrators, designers and AV and tech managers both from within North America and further afield. Our displays were a big draw for visitors and we enjoyed lots of creative conversations with people over the course of the show. InfoComm attendees explored innovative use-cases for our spherical display solutions, from theme park integrations to corporate conferencing in 360° and incredible experiential applications.
Celebrating their 70th year as industry leaders in projection screen solutions, Stewart Filmscreen partnered with Pufferfish at InfoComm to demonstrate the power of collaboration and encourage their visitors to open up their imaginations to amazing possibilities for their next display project.
It takes a commitment to excellence and outstanding innovation to think beyond flat screen materials to create spherical display solutions. The right optical coating is required to maintain image uniformity across the screen, regardless of projector placement, viewing angles, or ambient light. Together with Stewart we deliver to the highest quality standards, meaning we don’t have to compromise on our commitment to deliver extraordinary solutions.
We were impressed by their new Phantom HALR screen solution. A flexible, front projection, high ambient light rejection, screen material, Phantom HALR offers excellent ambient light rejection capabilities that deliver an exceptional entertainment experience, day or night. A side-by-side comparison was mounted in the booth, allowing visitors to see the striking comparison with standard screen materials.
Pufferfish partners with the world’s leading projector manufacturers to offer our customers cutting-edge display systems and traffic-stopping visuals. Together with our international partners, we push boundaries to offer world-beating solutions.
InfoComm saw us introducing a brand new integration with Norwegian projection experts Norxe. Offering an exclusive first-look at the hotly-anticipated new P1 projector, the product was integrated with our displays for the first time.
On stand, the P1 was paired with both the PufferSphere and hemispherical PufferDome. With un-paralleled LED brightness and superior colour, the P1 demonstrated a rich colour contrast on the displays.
A true solid-state projector, it's also extremely low maintenance, with a 5-year service cycle, making it ideal for permanent installations in public-facing spaces. The addition of the P1 to our projector options allows us to offer even more choice and flexibility to our customers.
Our content team developed unique interactive content that was designed to attract attention featuring stunning 360° flyover videos of our office locations and engaging global filters which allowed visitors to play with visibility of cloud coverage, transport links, population data and timezones on the globe.
Long standing projector partners Barco were also a hot topic and winning a "best in show" award for their range of laser phosphor projectors with enhanced 4K resolutions.
Pufferfish are excited to be able to offer solutions powered by the Barco F90 and F70 platforms, as well as the new UDX large venue projectors, offering increased brightness, contrast, resolution and operating lifetime.
Our congratulations to the Barco team on a revolutionary new range, we're looking forward to translating the impact into our displays in the coming months.
Pufferfish projection partners Panasonic debuted their high-speed real-time tracking and projection mapping system using some mesmerising body-popping dance moves. The system will enable high-resolution images at 10,000 ANSI lumen to be mapped onto fast-moving objects, such as performers on stage, with masking and trimming applied over video and fed to the projector in real time.
Also featured on the stand was their new light ID 'Link Ray' technology, which promises a multitude of opportunities for engagement and analytics within the retail and digital signage sector.
