Harris® Brought Prysm’s Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) to IBC
The Prysm and Harris® partnership combines Harris® state-of-the-art Digital Out-Of-Home and broadcast solutions with a custom built Prysm 10’x5’ tile videowall.
Prysm’s display platforms offer powerful visual experiences ideal for broadcast. The LPD tiles deliver sharp image quality with unrivaled, off axis viewing angles of 178° that allow a multitude of crisp camera angles. Prysm’s displays also provide colour uniformity and consistency between panels to deliver a seamless, high contrast display using a deep black panel.
Colour temperatures range from 2,700K to 11,000K and can be individually set depending on the setting, environment and use, to ensure skin tones are portrayed accurately and in line with the presenters in the studio.
The LPD technology runs on solid state lasers, similar to the technology used in Blu-ray players, which scan the surface of the screen to excite the phosphors and create a picture. A global monitoring system automatically reads the parameters of each display to ensure long term brightness uniformity and colour consistency. This process ensures a long life span and is incredibly environmentally friendly. On average, Prysm’s LPD displays use 30 watts of power per tile- 75% less power than traditional backlit displays- and generate minimal access heat- ideal for confined studio spaces. By consuming less power, and omitting the need for special cooling infrastructure, Prysm’s displays dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership.
“After our initial success at CNBC in the states and our extensive testing in the broadcast market we are delighted to be here at IBC in partnership with Harris, a highly regarded and innovative player in the global broadcast market”, says Steve Scorse, VP of EMEA for Prysm. It is a real testament to the quality and capabilities of Prysm’s display solution.
“We are always looking for innovative display platforms that can take advantage of our latest software solutions, producing high impact, high quality broadcast displays”, says Ciaran Doran, International Marketing Director for Harris Systems Limited, Broadcast Communications. “We approached Prysm at ISE 2011 after seeing the new model of the TD1 tile in action, and are excited to be working with them on a number of different ventures this year.”
Earlier this year Prysm’s displays were installed on the new set of CNBC’s Mad Money with Jim Cramer. Prysm’s display platforms are and are now available Europe and the Middle East through several of Prysm’s International Partners.
