It was held on the 18th of May, at the Hotel Capannelle, the Roman stage of NEC RoadShow, annual event that moves throughout Italy and is organized thanks to collaboration between Ligra, NEC and Analog Way
The initiative, in the form of free open day, aims to promote the solutions of the two companies, integrable among them, and distributed on our territory by Ligra. The focus was on the corporate and customer worlds that need reliable, low-maintenance and 360-degree functional solutions. Among the important novelties illustrated by Massimo Gaetano, NEC‘s Technical Manager, there is the agreement with Raspberry Pi: the well known electronic card has been integrated into new monitors, making them configurable and updateable computers, particularly suited for digital signage applications. Much attention was also paid to the innovative touch system which, thanks to accurate touch detection, is immune to external light interference, providing maximum precision. This technology was implemented in the InLight Table X551UHD, a touchscreen desktop featuring the new Reactive Stage software, which in this case allowed sweep the items on auxiliary screens, making it particularly practical for presentations and conferences. The exhibition also showed the range of NEC projectors with Laser technology from 5,000 to 10,000 ANSI lumen, considered by the company as the future in video projection, VideoWall solutions and even full HD and 4K interactive monitors that we will talk about more broadly on the report you can read in the paper version of Connessioni. Raffaele Losi, Business Development Manager at Ligra, has confirmed thet the market is beginning to turn to fields where end users are not necessarily AV technicians: schools, restaurants, hotels, public buildings. For this reason, the development of newer products, more complex in the design stage to make it easier to use, specifically focuses on these markets where System Integrators, besides planning and installation, become real consultants for users. The next stages will take place in Naples on 13 September, and in Milan on 20 September.
