nce again Italians do it better! Diversity and integration: these opposite concepts, outlined in a draft many years ago by Mr. Claudio Nori, CEO of the Italian Company BLUROSSO Technology. Prompted the desire to surpass them in a unique, ultimate and digital outburst: Television; Internet; Radio; Images reproduction in High Resolution; High-Fidelity Sound Output; Entertainment; Home Automation Control and much more…The BLUROSSO project will join the Microsoft stand in Paris TECH DAYS fair from 8 to 11 February 2011. The Microsoft Company will present “La Maison Du Futur” ( The Fururistic House ), a perfect ambientation of the world most advanced available technologies. The BLUROSSO device will be placed in the livingroom and will have the role of full entertainment, connectivity and home management as you can see on the pictures below.
But what exactly this BLUROSSO project is ? When Mr. Nori start to think on this project years ago, the technology already existed, or was about to emerge; it was just a matter of developing and integrating it into just one device. Everything with just one cable, without unnecessary wires, cumbersome and vaguely compatible peripherals. BLUROSSO is the result of concept, research and design aimed at creating a unique product. A 100 % Italian beauty! It is the perfect final output of that process of technological convergence that allows all information to be integrated in a digital form. Intuitive in its use, Vivaldi performs its highest levels of quality in all the fields of the domestic or professional life. We heard about other companies trying to build devices with this concept but we realize that Blurosso device Vivaldi is in pole position by any point of view. And let’s see here why ?
First of all his design. People who knows Mr. Nori, are used to his continuous search of perfection. And that’s why one of the reason he preferred to create BLUROSSO cooperating with a Japanese designer, with Italian preparation that is Hiroshi Ono from Happy Design Studio. Based in Milano since 18 years now, Hiroshi’s ability to combine and “wear” technology using precious materials like aluminium, carbon fibbers, leather, glass etc. combined with technical solutions is impressive.
One of the most difficult appliance to design is the television as more than 80% of the project is represented by the screen. That’s why if you take a look on any existing brand you will discover that design are very similar. The solutions that Claudio Nori and Hiroshi Ono combine together in Vivaldi project are really innovative.
Everything takes place over High Definition Wireless access, ensuring security, speed and absolute precision. BLUROSSO is a technological uniqueness. A combination of equipment, applications and networks has finally come together in Vivaldi. This is why every method of use and every detail are inflexibly simple. It couldn’t be otherwise, thanks also to the processing power and the versatility of the processors.
BLUROSSO means processing speed with a Windows Embaded Standard 7 Operating System and software and can be used with an endless range of options. Direct and immediate access to the web navigation, e-mail, chat, services and to all the functions and any peripherals thanks to an interface system designed to be intuitively usable from the outset. When the screen is turned off, reducing energy consumption to the minimum, BLUROSSO keeps all its functions working also in download, as well as telephone over IP and Home Automation, and it reactivates with just a touch or if a phone call is incoming.
The large screen in anti-glare glass enhances a LED system controlled by a high speed processor to offer effective high definition with a state-of-the-art freshness, depth and brilliance: a dream come true with full immersion in its forms and colours. The High Definition TeleVision (HDTV) stands out with its standard format in 16:9 and in the more advanced version, adopted by Vivaldi as 1,080 p. In this solution the image scan is progressive. This gives maximum clarity and an absolutely thrilling effect of reality to the images. Thanks to image technology, with its different cores and powerful processing speed, BLUROSSO can manage colours, contrasts and brightness in a micrometric way, achieving the calibration of the chromatic temperature. Due to the Optimal Picture Control sensor, Vivaldi also measures the intensity of the light in the room and automatically adjusts the back-lighting of the screen, thereby guaranteeing a considerable reduction of energy costs and eye strain. Obtaining the maximum performances of the Hi-End fidelity using the best offered by the technology and the specialist BLUROSSO experience. The high performance glass has been treated on both sides with an anti-glare cover and optical defractors that block all unwanted light rays. All the distinctness of viewing remains intact and the brightness is enhanced by 50 per cent for shows and presentations with desired effects only.
The Hi Performance Sound System performs the best audio performances that you can imagine. This is the result of a solid know-how and a continuous cooperation with experts in Hi-Fi audiophile products. With the adoption of the evolved Sound Retrieval System (SRS), an extra-extended sound field is created, which enlarges the optimal listening position and allows tools and sounds to be localised in a perfectly defined way in the audio mix. BLUROSSO is equipped with control systems and boasts the versatility of a high level home theatre amplifier complete with bass reflex and Dolby Digital Surround. You can therefore determine and keep different sound configurations that are suitable for different types of music, their source and the individual sound absorption of your surroundings. Temperature of device is controlled through a special dissipation heat cycle that avoids the use of fans, which could fatally interfere in hearing perfect sound.
As soon as it is turned on, the value of the complete digital integration belonging to BLUROSSO is striking: Internet, video and TV in effective high definition, analogue, terrestrial, digital and satellite TV, analogue and satellite radio, so-called multicasting (that is to say, receiving radio and video programmes on request), instant messaging, Skype, web telephone and much more can all be used.
BLUROSSO also uses a Blu-Ray reader and has specific housing and slots for photographic memory card and video card readers. It saves on space and complications. Vivaldi obviously reads and burns, thereby allowing you to record programmes in real time in HD. You can just insert the memory card of your digital camera into the appropriate slot and easily start to create and see all your chosen photos in a large format and in detail, using only one remote control. The pleasure of an interesting programme and a great film can be stopped at any time. The automatic playback memory allows you to start watching it again without missing anything. Naturally if you receive a video call it will appear directly on Vivaldi’s screen. In the galaxy of high speed information, BLUROSSO is not a closed box that performs some functions, but a powerful open terminal that is ready and suitable to conform with every current and possible development of digital information.
BLUROSSO dialogues in harmony using WiFi and Bluetooth with other computers, mobile phones (I-phone ready), laptops and peripherals such as printers, scanners, headsets, earphones, cameras, video games consoles, mp3 players: in one word, with everything that is digital. All the wireless connectivity you want, using only the advantages of the most advanced and fastest technology available today, the triumph of wireless, wi-fi, bluetooth. Surfing the web for long periods, broadly and, above all, widely. Free and immediate access to any television programme on a spectacular screen, enjoying the heights of performance with sound and visual fidelity.
Day by day, systems and equipment turn our homes into an increasingly more comfortable, more sophisticated and complex machine where to live in, to satisfy our needs for functionality, comfort, security and wellbeing: the temperature of the various rooms and much more will be available with a click. BLUROSSO simplifies and improves home life overall, transporting you into the future of home automation that has already arrived. Not only active security through video surveillance, but also passive control, such as the control of air conditioning in each room, of the lights and shutters, hobs and oven, the state of the fridge and freezer. Moreover, it should be considered that the harmonious and optimal use of energy that can be programmed via BLUROSSO in the various systems used throughout the day means lower general costs in terms of energy management.
Systems and equipment that can enhance a positive influence in domestic life can be connected to BLUROSSO, adding new functions and properties to it. Airport lounges or privately owned premises, hotel receptions, theatre foyers, multiplexes, prestigious commercial areas, hotel chains, cruise ships, media companies with advanced web projects, , telecommunication and bank operators, industrial and service groups. all find Vivaldi to be the ideal technological partner for a potentially infinite range of services and exchange of information. Project partners, airports, large stations, busy public places, specialised operators.
