We had a great year at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) in Amsterdam this year. We were overwhelmed to see so many new faces visit our stand and, as always, had a fantastic time catching up with the existing d3 community.
On our own stand, in Hall 8, we had the worldwide launch of the eagerly awaited 2×4pro server, with integrated VFC card technology.
BlackTrax and Notch demos
The stand, also focused on how Notch real-time generative effects and BlackTrax real-time motion tracking system, work seamlessly with d3.
Our Notch demo showed how users can edit and create high quality real-time content in a node-based environment, then transfer and playback in d3, without time-consuming rendering.
The team showcased how their global network are using d3 for a dynamic range of projects, each exploring different scales and verticals. Using our pro range, for some of the largest and most complicated of shows, events and installations, to using the 2×2plus, for smaller productions such as theatre, architainment and fixed installations.
Key to this growth is our global network of resellers and rental partners, who were also projected across our d3 stand at this year’s ISE. Our fantastic Benelux Resellers FACE, were on hand again this year, demonstrating d3 on their stand in Hall 7.
Panasonic ‘Show Stopper’
In Hall 1, d3 studio partner, Painting With Light, created content which was projected onto moving AirOrbs, helium filled spheres, provided by Airstage, using Panasonic 30,000 lumen laser projection technology. Blacktrax provided the tracking system and d3 provided the content playback, real-time mapping and complete integration of all the partnering technologies.
Award winning Epson stand
d3 was also used on the Epson stand for projection mapping onto a Formula 1 car, which won an ISE 2017 award for being the best stand over 100 sqm. In Hall 12, d3 featured on the robotic arm projection for Barco and on the DigiLed stand.
Questek Advanced wins InAVative award
The InAVative awards, powered by ISE and InAVate, were held again at this year’s ISE. South African design and visual solution specialists, Questek Advanced, won an InAVative Retail Installation award for their project, Telkom Customer Experience centre, using d3.
The project features a collaboration video wall at the heart of the centre, spanning almost the entire length of the control room (320m-272 rear-projection cubes) making it the biggest video wall ever installed in Africa. The wall helps visitors find their way around and learn more about Telkom’s world of networks and communication infrastructure.
