AV Stumpfl to Present AnyShape Projection Screen Technology at ISE 2024
December 20, 2023
AV Stumpfl will present their AnyShape projections screen technology and the latest PIXERA 2.0 software features, as well as their new PIXERA GEN 2 media server hardware at the upcoming ISE trade fiar in Barcelona, Spain.
AnyShape technology makes it possible to order custom-built projection screens with a great variety of different frame shapes. The ability to build frame sapes that are not rectangular like e.g. circles, rounded edges or semi circles, can revolutionize the way in which desginers creatively use projection surfaces, the company says.
AV Stumpfl's screens sales director, Jan Walter, explains the importance of AnyShape technology: "Projection screens can be so much more than just passive rectangular surfaces, they can be a vital part of immersive storytelling experiences. If you can visualze it, there is a good chancd that our team ban build it. AnyShape is a major development that allows for more creative freedom in the world of professsional projections."
AV Stumpfl's screen team will also introduce their new 21:9 products in the form of the latest MonoBlox mobile projection screen system.
The black projection screen surface material BLACKPEAK will also be shown at ISE, which offers phenomenal black levels and a great contrast ratio, even in settings with ambient light. Unlike white projection screen surfaces, AV Stumpfl's highly innovative projection screen surface is also very inconspicuous during the moments when no content is being projected, making it a great choice for fixed installations, the company says.
Media server specialists will be delighted to find that AV Stumpfl's PIXERA team will present many new PIXERA software and hardware developments at ISE.
One of the most important aspects of AV Stumpfl;s PIXERA version 2.0 is its multi-user workflow capability, which allows media server operators to be much more flexible and efficient when working on complex installations or show environments.
Users now have granular control over how they collaborate on PIXERA projects. They can opt to share only a single portion, such as a projection warp or editing a composition timeline, or they can open up the entire project to the other users connected to the system.
Another imporant new PIXERA feature is "Content Remapping." Projection mapping challenges that are best handled at the actual content level can be easily mastered with this new feature.
New N+1 backup options and dry client programming capabilities are additional PIXERA 2.0 software features that will be presented at ISE.
PIXERA executive director Harry Gladow underlines the strategic importance of version 2.0: "Throughout the development of version 2.0 we received a great amount of important feedback from highly experienced AV professionals, which we took to heart. The result represents nothing less than the next chapter for PIXERA as a whole. ISE is the perfect place to showcase the extreme versatility of our growing platform."
Another new development is the GEN 2 hardware for PIXERA one and PIXERA two servers, that will be shown at ISE for the first time, including the PIXERA two RS. this powerful and pre-configured version of the PIXERA two hardware system is well suited for cross rental senarios.
The PIXERA team will also share their latest developments related to the new SMPTE 2110 standard.
AV Stumpfl GmbH will exhibit at the ISE exhibition in Barcelona from 30.01 - 02.02, at Booth #3A500, FIRA Barcelona, Spain.
