Once Jackson contacted ViewSonic, his vision started to become reality.
“They proposed various ideas and were really committed to helping me achieve my goal,” he said. “I don’t think most companies would take the time to solve a problem for a situation they’ve had never even heard of before. I can’t express how helpful the ViewSonic team was.”.
At the end of the day, the Ayala Concert Percussion Ensemble’s new solution included nine 52-inch ViewSonic CD5230 commercial displays, a VOT550 mini PC and universal power supply.
Now during each show—in a less-than-two-minute interval between performances—students use customized cranes to wheel these 85-pound displays into place and lift them to a height of 13 feet, so that students won’t block the audience’s view
“We then control our displays with the ViewSonic computer wirelessly from the audience via a Bluetooth mouse and keypad—at a distance of more than 60 feet away,” he said. “Once we hoist the displays up, lock them into place, power up the displays and they start to shine, it’s a beautiful moment.”
