Projection mapping the future with GeoBox

Projection mapping the future with GeoBox

I hope you are all keeping well during this difficult period for us all. Although we’re all effectively on pause at the current time, it will be “business as usual” soon enough, and there’s no doubt that the projection mapping industry will continue to go from strength to strength.

Previously seen as something of a niche solution, mainly favoured by guerrilla marketeers (it’s still the go-to approach for many public relations outfits looking to make some relatively easy noise for clients), projection mapping has gone mainstream over the past couple of years and is now being adopted across multiple sectors.

“Projection mapping is no longer regarded just as a guerrilla-marketing tactic for making a big PR splash on a well-known landmark – although this is still popular,” explained VNS CEO Steve Wang in a recent article for AV Magazine. (click here to read Steve’s complete article.)

“GeoBox edge-blending products have all of their functions embedded. A new concept to the professional AV market, the solutions allow installers to crop images, set overlap pixels, edge-blend and geometrically adjust images without the need for high-cost embedded projectors or media servers – and can be used with any projector, reducing costs.”

GeoBox one-box solutions allow mapping professionals to utilise less expensive projectors for their projects – projectors that are not tooled with the necessary integrated software solutions – again reducing costs and increasing flexibility.

A growth in demand for fixed installation mapping installations has meant that integrators are looking for less expensive, flexible solutions that allow them to make in-situ changes to content, using multiple projectors and a variety of technologies.

The broad range of GeoBox one-box, software-free solutions offer a unique, cost-effective answer to today’s varied projection mapping questions. All GeoBox solutions are 100% hardware and will control digital content from any input in any format, with no need for a separate PC. Unlimited projectors can be controlled by multiple, cascading GeoBoxes.

The latest edge-blending range, the GeoBox M800 solutions are available in two versions, the M800 and M800EX. They are the world’s first hardware projection mapping solutions, and are perfect for applications when various source contents need to be switched from one to the other. They allow installers to implement digital mapping and to edge-blend without the need for high-cost embedded projectors or media servers.

GeoBox edge-blending products have all of their functions embedded. Installers can crop images, set overlap pixels, edge-blend and geometrically adjust images. Multiple daisy-chained GeoBoxes can create truly immersive experiences.

In addition, the newly launched G901 processor works in concert with the M800 edge blender, and is ideal for use as a front-end processor providing extra functionalities to edge blending projection, such as PIP and POP on the entire image.

Wireless, Unified Communications & Interactieve touchscreens

Do you ever doubt whether you offer product A or product B to your customer? And based on which criteria do you choose? Feeling, preference and / or experience? The AV landscape is these days is full of equivalent products. To keep things structured for you, we have put three wireless presentation solutions in one overview. In this triotest: BenQ InstaShow, Actiontec SreenBeam and Northvision VisionShare.

More than dry specifications

Of course, we can fill the comparison table with dry specifications that you may already know or don’t find interesting. The point is to match the best product to the wishes and situation of your customer. Below are a number of topics written out and what the manufacturers offer.

Connecting to a laptop

There is a difference between the solutions in the method of connecting to the display. BenQ and Northvision work with a dongle that you connect to a laptop. Both have an HDMI or USB-C connection, but differ in maximum range. ScreenBeam connects via a peer-to-peer connection, so that the module can be completely hidden from view.

All solutions can present from Windows laptops and Macbooks. ScreenBeam offers support for Windows via Miracast (shortcut WIN + P) and Airplay for Mac. BenQ and Northvision present via the dongle, of course, but also support Airplay for Macbooks.

Connect to mobile device

In addition to a laptop, it is also desirable that a connection can be made with a mobile device. BenQ has its own app that can be installed on the device and supports Airplay. ScreenBeam supports native screen sharing iOS via AirPlay and Android via Google Cast. As a result, no app is required. Northvision uses the external app Mirroring360 for iOS and Android. This app is based on subscription and therefore entails additional costs.

Image

If you offer a beautiful new 4k (interactive) display, you naturally want appropriate wireless presenting solutions that can also handle 4K. Even though 4K is offered by all three brands, you are assigned to the higher models.

In addition to 4k, VisionShare’s 60GHz also ensures that the image is transferred without latency. So there is no compression between the laptop and the display. You will benefit with faster images such as video or frequent switching between programs.

User friendliness

When it comes to user-friendliness, it is positive that all three are Plug & Play. The fact that no additional software needs to be installed is beneficial for the ICT infrastructure and when external people want to use the system. If meetings are often held where multiple sources share information at the same time, keep in mind that BenQ and ScreenBeam can display up to 4 screens at a time and VisionShare only one.

Noordhuis

Case study: Noordhuis

“For specialized audiovisual solutions we gladly call upon Epatra”

“For specialized audiovisual solutions we gladly call upon Epatra”. That is what Iwan Prij concludes. Iwan has worked for Noordhuis for over 20 years, a full-service office supplier. “We are a regional player in the north-east of the Netherlands. We have four branches, with our headquarters in Meppel where, among other things, the department for the sale of audiovisual solutions is located. Iwan Prij is an account manager for audiovisual solutions at Noordhuis. “The Audiovisual department is largely active in education. But we also do projects in healthcare and in the business market.”

The audiovisual department deals with very diverse audiovisual solutions. “At the moment, however, we primarily deal with touch screens.” Traditionally, the focus was more on the beamer, for example in classrooms and meeting rooms. “Now we actually only see beamers in very large halls or auditoriums. Much more know-how is involved and other skills are needed for the installations. In such cases we are very happy that we can call upon Epatra! We partly have the knowledge, but the development in this market is very fast. We are too small a company. We simply cannot keep up”

The project management is different for each project

Iwan is very positive about the project management by Epatra as well as about their contact person, Sander van Duren. The degree of project management differs per project. Sometimes they are a technical discussion partner who are very personally involved with the client. “Sometimes Sander comes along to explain things personally to the client. That is really great, because he has so much technical knowledge”. Other times, Iwan is the one who contacts the client and then sends Sander information, with or without photo material. “And then I get to hear their advice and they make an offer, which I send to the client. 9 out of 10 times it becomes an assignment.”

Iwan is not only positive about the client contact, but also about the installations. “The nice thing about Epatra is that they can also install it immediately. They have a lot of knowledge and just know everything about the ancillary technical issues. They do it every day and are very professional.”

For several Years

Noordhuis has been doing business with Epatra for years and many projects have already been completed. Iwan himself now has experience from four projects with Epatra. “And that went very well every time. There was always very pleasant contact and if something needed to be adjusted, the installers were also prepared to brainstorm and give advice.”

Noordhuis’ clients share this positivity. “We have very satisfied clients, even if an external party does the installation. We often say in all honestly: this is so specialized, we have a very good partner for that. And the client is happy to receive professional guidance.”

The great thing about working with Epatra is that your own knowledge is also expanding. “I just learn a lot from the contact with Sander. For example, we now often do the inventories ourselves and then we receive a quotation from Epatra based on our collected client information. In this way we can do the sales process ourselves and the installations as much as possible, too. As it gets more complex, we outsource it to Epatra.”

Noordhuis is very positive about the collaboration with Epatra for various reasons. “We are extremely satisfied with the business we do with Epatra. We would certainly recommend that. The assortment of Epatra is good. They provide expert advice and show that they have knowledge of the latest solutions in the field of audiovisual resources. Furthermore, they have swift and pleasant communication and offer good sales support. We are very satisfied with their professional installations.”
