After a long and steamy summer, people are back on the road visiting trade shows and fairs trying to drum up business.

If you’ve ever been part of a team building up or tearing down a booth at one of these confabs, you know it’s hard work – especially if the booth involves large screen displays.

There’s good news, however: using a software-based pixel processor will save you time, effort, money and reduce the risk of technical problems. 

Here’s why:

    • Flexibility and Customization: Software-based pixel processors offer a high degree of flexibility and customization. They allow users to adapt the processing capabilities to the specific requirements of the event. This flexibility is crucial when dealing with different display configurations, resolutions, and content types commonly encountered in conference setups. Not to mention, there’s no need to physically deliver, and return, a box. 
    • Price: Traditional hardware-based pixel processors can be expensive to purchase and maintain. Software-based solutions often run on standard computing hardware, reducing overall costs. This is particularly beneficial for temporary installations where budget constraints may be a concern.
    • Software Updates: Software-based pixel processors can receive updates and improvements over time. This ensures that the system remains up-to-date with the latest features, optimizations, and compatibility enhancements. In contrast, hardware-based processors may become outdated and require costly replacements.
    • Integration with Other Software: Software-based pixel processors can be integrated with other software and systems, such as content management systems and control systems. This integration streamlines the operation and management of large screen displays, making it easier to switch between different types of content and sources.
    • Reduced Physical Footprint: Hardware-based pixel processors typically require physical rack space and additional cabling, which can be cumbersome in temporary installations. Software-based solutions can run on existing computer hardware, minimizing the physical footprint and simplifying the setup.

Bottom line: Cost-effectiveness, scalability, and other advantages make software-based pixel processors like three10’s well-suited for setups of large screen displays at conferences and temporary installations. Indeed, our product’s ability to adapt to changing needs and technology trends makes it a preferred choice for many event organizers and AV professionals.
