The AV Stumpfl philosophy applied to each and every product is built around enabling faster set up time, lower maintenance requirements, portability and a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
New to prolight+sound will be the fully upgraded Wings Engine Stage media server. Technical Director Fred Neulinger describes the new server: "The original Wings Engine Stage was already very robust and built from stainless steel. For the new Wings Engine Stage, we created an improved system architecture that is even more shock absorbent and is truly fantastic for all rental and staging environments.”“It has a more powerful processor and new display port outputs, in addition to framelock and genlock inputs. prolight + sound visitors will love seeing this new media server in action."
The flagship Wings Engine Raw 8K server will also be shown. Currently it is the world’s most powerful media server of its kind for uncompressed content playback, delivering four simultaneous streams of uncompressed 4K content at 60hz. Multiple automotive brands used Wings Engine Raw 8K technology to launch their next-generation innovations in uncompromising quality at the recent 87th Geneva Motor Show.
Another fascinating addition to AV Stumpfl’s media server and show control family is the new Wings Player. This compact but powerful high end digital signage hardware player closes the gap between simple video players and fully blown media servers. It features automatic camera based calibration and soft-edge blending for flat surfaces and can be upgraded for use in 3D projection mapping setups. The Wings Player has a very compact form factor of just 355 by 90 by 220 mm and supports various high quality video codecs with resolutions of up to UHD/4K.
An even more compact media playback solution will delight AV Stumpfl booth visitors interested in realizing multi-display and video wall setups. AV Stumpfl’s UHD Player is a solid-state player unit that can handle files up to 3840 x 2160 @ 60fps, using the H.265 codec. Multiple UHD Players can be frame synchronized via IP networks using a dedicated synchronization protocol in order to simplify the display wall setup process.
A broad range of premium quality projection screens for entertainment environments will of course also be shown, including the new MONOCLIP screen system. It combines all the advantages of the acclaimed MONOBLOX system with a full clean profile without studs and press snaps. The MONOCLIP's entire frame block unfolds and the snap joints lock automatically for an ultra fast set-up process.
Hans Stucken, Global Marketing Manager concluded: “When it comes to the European live entertainment market, there’s no show like prolight+sound. We’re delighted to be returning to Frankfurt for this year’s show. AV Stumpfl is in a unique position by being able to manufacture both projection screens and media server systems, which is why many well known rental & staging companies like to use our products. Attending prolight+sound is important to further deepen these relationships, to meet new clients and users and to find out more about future trends.”
AV Stumpfl will exhibit at prolight+sound at Stand A58, Hall 4 at the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition Center from 4-7 April 2017.
