NaViSense: In partnership with Guise AI, Inc., Sharp/NEC debuted its NaViSense computer vision technology at this year’s InfoComm. NaViSense is a groundbreaking solution that will lead to sharper audience insights and improved customer experiences across a multitude of industries. It uses computer vision, a form of artificial intelligence where computers can “see” the world, analyze visual data, and then make decisions from it to gain understanding about the environment and customer behavior. It gathers and processes anonymous customer attributes using off-the-shelf or existing camera sources and edge computing devices such as RPi4. This technology gathers the dwell time of people in front of a display, as well as a variety of other attributes, such as their estimated age and gender, the brand of clothing they are wearing, traffic trends and more. Information collected by NaViSense can be used to improve customer experiences and enhance decision making at airports, restaurants, office buildings, banks and credit union branches, museums and numerous retail settings.
PE506UL Laser Projector: Announced earlier this year, the PE506UL represents the next generation entry-installation laser projectors. The ideal projection solution for K-12, higher education and corporate applications, the upgraded PE Series projectors deliver powerful brightness with 5,200 lumens, accommodating larger screens and delivering more value to customers needing dynamic, high-resolution imaging at an affordable price. In addition, their laser light source offers a minimum of 20,000 hours of reliable life which reduces maintenance requirements, extends usable life, and lowers its total cost of ownership. The projectors also offer advanced LCD technology for brilliant colors and features and manual horizontal/vertical lens shift for easier installations. These projectors are backed by an industry-leading 5-year warranty with Sharp/NEC’s InstaCare replacement program included.
