The Austrian engineering company will present the upgraded media server on the show floor in Amsterdam, with its latest device promising to deliver four streams of full 4K uncompressed content at 60Hz, whilst still allowing media overlays, text generation and show control on top.
The target market for AV Stumpfl with this latest update is media-based installations requiring high-resolution content, such as themed attractions, cinematic presentation, theatres, live events or planetariums.
Users can utilise a single Wings Engine Raw server to manage content over a virtually unlimited amount of LED screens or to drive a 4×4 projection system with soft edge blending, mapping and geometry correction.
Alternatively, Wings Engine Raw can be used to blend or overlay multiple parallel HD, 4K, 5K or even 6K streams in real-time.
Wings Engine Raw now includes additional hardware upgrades such as four DisplayPort 1.2 video interfaces, professional multi-channel audio options and various input options such as DVI, HDMI 2.0 and 3G-SDI. It also now uses a custom engineered RAID 10 system.
The system processes and delivers video content at full 4:4:4 colour sampling and hosts the WingsRX render core engine that has a 64-bit program architecture and uses SSE CPU instructions to speed up content processing.
It is accompanied by AV Stumpfl’s embedded operating system, Backup-Manager, that features a dedicated EDID management and automatic camera-based calibration system for soft-edge blending, warp and geometry mapping, all operable by time line or cue based control.
“It’s worth remembering that our first innovation was not in a research laboratory but in the installation environment so we know how to deliver what our customers are looking for in terms of artefact free content, reduced systems complexity and complete return on investment,” explains Tobias Stumpfl, CEO at AV Stumpfl.
“Wings Engine Raw 8K is another example of how AV Stumpfl is continuing to raise the performance bar. It far exceeds any competition in the market today.”
Visitors to the AV Stumpfl stand at ISE 2016 will see interactive 8K projection first hand. They will be given the opportunity to test out Wings Engine Raw using four streams of 4K content at 60fps with 25K lumens projectors onto a curved AV Stumpfl Fullwhite projection screen.
