Event Showcases 4K Technology
Commerce, MI (April 6, 2009) – IGI has announced that it will co-host the second 4K Forum April 20 – 23, 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. Returning co-hosts include Sony Electronics and NVIDIA. Special guests and additional presenters will include ASSIMILATE and da Vinci Systems.
The 4K Forum is a technology showcase that will take place during the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The event will provide video professionals working in 4K resolution - or those contemplating doing so - with insights into new hardware, software and display technology developments that have made a reality of 4K content workflow and presentation. More event information can be found at www.4kforum.net.
IGI will be showcasing two 4K (4096 x 2160 pixel) resolution, rear projection displays at the 4K Forum; one will be the IGI PowerWindow 4K, a self contained rear projection display with a screen width of ten feet. The other display will feature a rear projection screen approximately twenty-three feet in width on which native 4K resolution digital motion picture content will be shown.
NVIDIA will feature its Quadro Plex visual computing system and Sony will showcase its SXRD® 4K projectors, both of which are integral components of IGI's 4K display systems. ASSIMILATE will feature its SCRATCH digital intermediate process solution, which is capable of working in full 4K resolution video, and daVinci will feature its R-4K real-time, 4K color grading solution.
"4K is becoming the resolution of choice for digital motion picture production," said Pat Hernandez, President of IGI. "Our large scale, 4K displays will play a vital role in the production, post-production and previewing of 4K content as it makes its way to the digital cinema screen. And since our 4K displays can also be used in broadcast control room applications, this venue allows us to be in front of both audiences at once."
