MASERGY, Christie, HaiVision, Illusio Technologies and AV Concepts Support Broadcast at InfoComm09 DALLAS & LONDON--(Business Wire)-- Musion, an exclusive master global licensor for the Eyeliner telepresence system, today announced the world`s fastest high definition (HD) video public broadcast system will be demonstrated at InfoComm09, June 15-19, 2009, in Orlando, Fla. With the technological support of MASERGY, Christie,Illusio Technologies, AV Concepts and HaiVision, the demonstration titled, "Experience a New Dimension: 3-D Holographic Projection," will transmit live, interactive holograms for the first time from London, Dallas and Montreal. Musion Systems, the holographic screen projection company behind the virtual images of Sir Richard Branson, cartoon band Gorillaz, Madonna, Al Gore and HRH Prince Charles, in cooperation with Illusio Technologies, will be showcasing its much vaunted life-size 3-D Telepresence (TP) solution. For the first time, a live broadcast of a 3-D hologram will be transmitted across the Atlantic, from London to Orlando, as well as other locations in the U.S. and Canada, for simultaneous transcontinental communication. The showcase-full "rock `n` roll" display stage measuring 20 feet wide and 15 feet high will be housed in Conference Room 304H, located on the third floor of the Orange County Convention Center, on June 17, 18 and 19 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Registered conference attendees can register for the event, which runs every 30 minutes, at email@example.com. "Previously a sci-fi technology limited to Star Trek and Star Wars, 3-D holograms are now a reality and can be used as a tool for live, interactive meetings between speakers and their audiences who are based in different locations," said James Rock, director of Musion. Thanks to patented technology from Musion Systems, called Eyeliner, and the combination of the best technology providers in their fields, speakers, appearing as 3-D holograms, are able to see, view and interact with their remote audience, making this an ideal tool for trade show and retail displays, keynote speeches, visitor attractions, lecturers, courtroom witnesses, preachers, musicians, comedians and other forms of entertainment, especially those that require a two-way communication between the speaker and audience. The Musion show will include the first ever `Transatlantic Busk,` where professional and student artists in London and Montreal will perform music, song, comedy and dance live to the audience in Orlando. Each performance will be followed by a collection hat being passed around for the audience to deposit a token of their appreciation. This is believed to be the first time an artist performing live in one location is financially compensated in real time by a watching audience located remotely. Artists will be paid their busk returns immediately - in line with true busking tradition. Other activities include a daily streaming House of Worship service from Pastor Erik Pattison and a live holographic auction hosted in London with bidders in Orlando. These technological advancements are only possible through partnering with a combination of the most advanced technology providers in their specific fields: * The unique and patented 3-D holographic technology developed by Musion, will be staged by its strategic U.S. reseller, Illusio Technologies, Inc. * Display projection will be powered by Christie, combining HD resolution and rich color saturation to enable smaller objects to enlarge to giant size proportions with incredible eye-popping detail. Christie's Vista Spyder will also be used to process, manipulate and optimize the imagery. * MASERGY will provide a high-speed global network connection that optimizes the delivery of an HD video signal, for a jitter-free, life-like experience. * HaiVision will be supplying the low latency transmission codecs which combine high definition video compression with the lowest latency performance available. * AV Concepts, a national rental and staging partner, will manage the technical production. The two-way signal latency of fewer than 200 milliseconds (2/10ths of a second) is around six times faster than satellite and promises to finally deliver streaming HD video content with the signal immediacy of radio. The 3-D image is created by Musion`s unique HD video image capture processes and patented Eyeliner Foil apparatus. Smooth motion is on account of Musion`s faster frame rate of 50 interlaced frames per second, which creates the natural image edge blurring necessary for 3-D images to look realistic. This incredible quality is possible because MASERGY`s global network was purpose-built to deliver superior video performance at all times and under all network conditions.
