Healthy and prosperous organizations thrive on purpose, people and passion. Since I like alliteration, I will add that programs and property quickly follow, to serve the first three life blood attributes. Staying relevant and up-to-date is vital. What served us in a prior era may no longer be the right answers and methods today. Modes of interaction, motivation, creativity and productivity are changing and technology is assisting it, if not driving it. Bring your own device and mobile communications influence behavioral patterns. People are dispersed. People are busy. Many organizations are doing more with less. Workers are extended in their responsibilities. It makes for a challenging and yet exciting time. Creating environments for immediate and immersive technology connections is the mission of any tech communications provider. Perhaps our former design paradigms must be altered. Our industry gets to set the stage for collaboration anytime, anywhere with anyone. Starin is adapting. Your views and participation are welcome.
When I first saw 4K shown on a panel at InfoComm I thought, “ok, I see the pixel density, but who needs yet higher high definition?” I justified that when you get to larger screen sizes, certainly there will be less screen-door effect and a more solid image. So, ok for those applications it might make sense. Still, I wondered beyond the image conscious people of the world, who would want it? Most laptops are putting out 1080.
When I was shown that WOW Vision’s Collab8 collaboration hub has 4K output capability the light went on. 4K is not about Ultra-HD video! It’s about pixel-density needed for effective collaboration. When you have a device like the Collab8 that allows up to 6 devices on the screen at one time, the system does a great job of scaling. Yet, how far can you go dicing up 1920×1080? Soon enough you have something less than VGA per shared participant. 4K is an answer.
For small collaboration stations – points of collaboration presence outside the typical conference room where everyone is in close proximity of a screen – this may or may not be required. It certainly will help the clarity. Yet it is in the new collaboration meeting room itself, where it more resembles a situation room or war room of numerous contributors on a digital canvass, that 4K is justified. And it provides a place for the industry to add value.
Where do you see 4k being applied?
The Annual Letter Carriers Food Drive Was A Success!
In three days Starin employees raised 125lbs of donations for local food banks!
Take a look at the pic attached, that is all you Starin! The post office will be
here today to pick up our donations. I hope they bring the BIG mail truck.
Thank you goes out to Gene Craven, CSR who organized this drive!
