Corporate TD travelled to Prysm Inc.'s Concord, MA office in order to check out the Synthesis software that accompanies their video walls.

In Concord, MA at a part-manufacturing facility part-research and development laboratory, employees for Prysm, Inc. work toward delivering their customers with the next generation in their video display technology. Corporate Tech Decisions was invited to experience Prysm's Cascade 190, geared toward collaboration in the workspace. The beauty of the system, as Corporate Tech Decision would soon find out, goes much deeper than the color spectrum that the laser-phosphor display technology allows. The system is run on Anacore's (recently purchased by Prysm) Synthesis software.


First, let's talk about the video wall. Prysm's laser-phosphor display creates a unique advantage for their video walls, as the technology creates virtually no heat while displaying what is on screen. In fact, Prysm encourages users to let the system run 24/7. The entire Cascade 190 wall runs on two electrical outlets and uses less energy than a common hair dryer. Inside the tiles are 20 lasers that are made by a third party and sourced by Prysm. A laser processor then manages the lasers and sends them into a fold mirror, which then sends the light through mylar and onto the front panel displays, which are manufactured mostly by hand at the Concord office.

The Synthesis software is what makes the system a collaborative juggernaut. For organization, the software allows for an unlimited amount of users to create different projects, and save chapter within those projects. So a user could create 'workspace' project and pull in different feeds, annotate, rearrange, and work on them for day 1. That chapter is automatically saved every time a change is made, and users can go back and see the work. A new chapter can be made for every day, every presentation, every idea, etc. and scrolled through at the bottom of the screen. The amount of information that can be stored and played with is great for long projects with many facets.
