As soon as the project was confirmed, Protech Integration had less than three months to decide on equipment, install infrastructure, design and assemble weather-proof projection rooms, lay fiber optic cables for video and control, and design command rooms. Projectors were placed in several locations, at various distances from digital sources.
Protech Integration, a leading company of digital display and video in Israel, selected Kramer’s solution to distribute DVI signals and to deliver these signals over fiber optic cables for high-quality transmission regardless of distance or climate conditions.
Medial on Manager controls all AV equipment used in the show, including twenty projectors driven by ten Only view servers and ten Adtec high-definition players. An Alesis hard disk audio player is used for the multichannel soundtrack and the sound system is produced by NEXO.
Every projector in the setup receives its signals using Kramer 621T and 621R DVI over fiber optic cable transmitter/receiver pairs and Kramer LC-4 optical cables to ensure the highest-quality DVI transmission. 20 VM-2HDCP 1:2 DVI distribution amplifiers provide continuous monitoring of the show over local monitors.
“Because of the impossible time schedule, we had to install equipment and design the system at the same time, the only way to succeed was to work using a very precise timetable” said Asi Goren from Protech Integration. “We tested several solutions for delivering the signals to the projectors and Kramer’s was the best. In our long experience with Kramer’s products, they are very reliable, and that was a very important factor.”
