Digital Signage Connection -- April 1, 2013 -- Prysm Inc. has announced a new Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) installation in the Wallenberg Auditorium at the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) building in Stockholm, Sweden.
The 14-by-6.5-foot Prysm videowall serves as the centerpiece of the academy's new state-of-the-art auditorium hailed as the most cutting-edge in Scandinavia.
Prysm LPD will deliver a powerful communication experience for the auditorium's 150-person audience whose key constituents include business, research, government and international partners.
The auditorium's design and interior architecture have been revitalized after 30 years of intense use with its official reopening on Feb. 22, 2013.
"We were briefed by our client that the AV technology brought in must be an innovator within its field to fit the ethos of the IVA and the superbly redesigned Wallenberg Auditorium," said Patrik Camp, managing director of system integrator Informationsteknik Stockholm. "Prysm's LPD videowall fits perfectly as its low power consumption, impressive uniformity and ultra-wide viewing angles were key value points for the large auditorium."
Prysm is the only company offering LPD technology, which, according to the company, delivers a uniform picture quality over the life of the display and offers contrast, fill factors and fast response times delivering brilliant and immersive video.
Prysm displays also use up to 75 percent less energy and decrease the production of greenhouse gases by 80 percent when compared to competing LCD, LED, plasma and rear-projector videowall displays, the company said.
"The IVA installation is an exciting example of how cutting-edge LPD technology can provide immersive experiences for audiences at a wide range of venues including some of the world's most venerable institutions," said Amit Jain, co-founder and CEO of San Jose, Calif.-based Prysm. "The industry-leading viewing angles Prysm offers are tailored perfectly for large audiences such as those in the Wallenberg Auditorium. With close to 180-degree views, everyone in the room enjoys a stunning visual experience that only LPD can deliver."
Prysm offers interactive and immersive capabilities, including the availability of on-screen gesture sensors, interactive touch screens, remote control access, up to 180-degree curved walls and free form videowall capabilities. Recent LPD installations include IAC Headquarters in New York, Dubai Media and GE Canada.
