AVIXA and Panasonic AV Experience at the New York Hall of Science

November 29, 2017

Connected Worlds

With immersive technologies taking over the world of entertainment, what would it be like for it take center stage in making learning fun for youngsters? Our team took a look at this by visiting our neighbors at the New York Hall Of Science in Queens, by attending a joint presentation by Panasonic USA and our friends at AVIXA (formerly InfoComm International).


Connected Worlds
is an interactive and immersive CGI exhibit in which gestures and touches on a series of high-definition screens affect the virtual environment. This helps visitors understand how actions will influence nature and balance. Visitors can choose from a series of biomes: jungle, desert, wetlands, reservoir, mountain valley, and plains.

The exhibit was designed in collaboration with Design I/O, an art studio that specializes in immersive installations. In addition to a series of projectors and touch-sensitive surfaces, it also had surround playout of sounds and ambiance through a multi-channel JBL system to augment the experience.

Panasonic had product experts on hand to show off some of their cutting-edge video wall and projection technologies and how they can improve immersive experiences. This includes the new LINKRAY protocol which acts as a QR code-style scan that can embed inside of digital signage.

The main product displayed was the RZ21 - an HD projector with some of the shortest throws and tightest angles anywhere. The unit on display was barely positioned two feet from a 20-plus foot screen, with a nearly 20,000-lumen picture that was crisp as you could imagine.

The New York Hall of Science was originally founded as part of the 1964 World's Fair and continues to serve the city's schools and youth programs with various learning and discovery programs throughout the year.
