Visionary Solutions to Demonstrate Interoperability With Partner Technologies at Digital Signage Expo 2012

The use of VSI encoders by technology leaders like Daktronics, Enseo, and Four Winds Interactive, is demonstrative of the interoperability, scope, and relevance of VSI's technology within the digital signage space.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Feb. 21, 2012 - Visionary Solutions, Inc. (VSI), today announced that the company's industry-renowned encoders will be part of several partner technology workflows at the upcoming Digital Signage Expo 2012 as key interoperable equipment within digital signage solutions. The use of VSI encoders by technology leaders like Daktronics, Enseo, and Four Winds Interactive, is demonstrative of the interoperability, scope, and relevance of VSI's technology within the digital signage space.


Daktronics, the world's largest supplier of large screen video displays, electronic scoreboards, computer-programmable displays, digital billboards, and control systems includes VSI encoders as part of the company's digital signage control solution that offers users a powerful merger of control software, data integration, playback hardware, and image processing technology to form a single, comprehensive production solution. VSI's partner Enseo provides an IPTV application that leverages VSI encoding technology. Encoders from VSI, coupled with Enseo digital media players, efficiently distribute and contribute content as part of a digital signage ecosystem to reduce equipment costs and increase scalability. Additionally, Four Winds Interactive makes use of VSI's encoder technology to complement their digital signage technology in order to increase distribution options. VSI's technology also works with digital signage solutions from X2O Media, a full-service provider of software, network management, and content services for real-time visual communication applications, to help integrators leverage the scalability of IPTV technologies for content acquisition and distribution.

VSI's encoders enable encoding of high-definition video via an HDMI/DVI-D or SDI input, and are suitable for all applications requiring cost-effective, low-bit-rate video distribution over IP networks. The base model includes 480i SD encoding with closed captioning support. Optional modules enable forward error correction and support for all image resolutions including 720p, 1080i, or full 1080p60 in an H.264 stream. VSI encoders also feature a modular firmware architecture that enables the customization of the encoders, providing greater flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Users can purchase only those features they need while enjoying the flexibility to easily upgrade in the future as requirements change.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
