4K in control rooms: how many pixels can you handle?

4K logo

4K is a resolution standard that literally almost has 4000 pixel lines or 8.8 million pixels (to be correct, 4096 x 2160). This is four times the resolution you have at the moment on your HD television set. By adding pixels, you are adding different perceived image quality features like sharpness, color depth, etc., but most importantly you create more information space.

"Présence" is 93% of a successful presentation

Switch blog 19082014
As mentioned previously, Albert Mehrabian did a lot of research into verbal and nonverbal communication. In a face-to-face situation, words only account for 7% of your credibility, 38% is your tone of voice and 55% is your body language. So, your credibility is for 93% determined by your voice and your body or your "présence". I have to use the French word as I couldn't come up with one word in English that has the same meaning. Présence is all about capturing the space you are in: physically, verbally, and mentally.

Holidays: a time to enjoy sports?

Holidays are the time of the year when we’re determined to unplug from the daily routine. For some people, that means an interruption in their workout schedule. Others may grasp the occasion to climb an extra mountain, run that extra mile on the beach, play a game of tennis or soccer or take up swimming or cycling. Or watch sports on television. Whatever you prefer, we feel that ‘sports’ is related to holidays. And to Barco too!

A picture paints a thousand words

Switch blog 12082014 - picture 1
Ever heard of the 7%-38%-55% Rule? According to Albert Mehrabian, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the American UCLA, words only account for 7% of how we interpret a message. Tone of voice (38%) and non-verbal elements (55%) have a much bigger impact on the effectiveness of a dissertation. So, next time you’re working on an important presentation, think about striking the right balance. Instead of stuffing slides with words, consider whether a picture could convey the same message better.
