Challenges and Solutions to Managing Mega-scale LED Installations
Abstract: In today’s large format digital display market there is a never ending call for displays that deliver various forms of content in an increasingly efficient manner. While the effective management of individual pixels…..each and every individual pixel… is critical in the quest for displays to incite emotions and stimulate thought, many of these large systems present significant challenges and complexities related to product form factors, system topologies, and color management. This talk will discuss suggested industry changes in order to overcome the trend in display resolutions quickly outpacing source content capabilities and standards.
Speaker: Jeremy Hochman, CEO, Megapixel VR
Bio: Jeremy Hochman is a designer and entrepreneur who made tech history when he cofounded Element Labs in 2002, thereby giving birth to the creative LED industry. Developing LED products that graced award-winning music videos, concert tours, and Super Bowl Halftime Shows, Element Labs became not only an industry leader but a constant industry disruptor, and Hochman soon became highly sought after to create custom designs for iconic artists ranging from Beyoncé, to David Fincher, to James Turrell. In 2010, Barco acquired Element Labs and Hochman remained with the company for a year, in which time he developed Barco’s most successful LED product to date. He then went on to build two other R&D groups from the ground up, including the team currently helming the creative LED charge at his latest startup, Megapixel VR.
Founding Megapixel in 2018, Hochman has already established the company as the authority on developing bleeding-edge LED products and video control software. Through Megapixel, he is currently collaborating with leading designers and architects to incorporate his technologies into some of the most ambitious projects around the world.
An active member of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Hochman divides his time between Los Angeles and Silicon Valley.
