AV Stumpfl to Show Revolutionary Projection Screen Accessory and Uncompressed 8K Media Servers at ISE 2018

Austrian AV technology manufacturer AV Stumpfl will present a new projection screen accessory that it says is revolutionary, a broad line-up of innovative projection screens and high-performance media server and installation products at this year’s ISE exhibition in Amsterdam, Netherlands (Hall 1, stand H10).

The AV Stumpfl philosophy applied to each and every product is built around enabling faster set up time, lower maintenance requirements and a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). These guiding principles led to the development of the ground-breaking T-32 Shift. This projection screen “leg” accessory makes it possible for just one person to easily adjust a mobile projection screen’s height, without having to disassemble it first. No extra measuring is needed to ensure that the frame is level, due to a clearly marked height scale.

The T-32 Shift is compatible with AV Stumpfl’s Monoblox32 and MonoClip32 projection screen frames, which means it can easily be combined with existing AV Stumpfl screen systems. Using the T-32 Shift, it takes less than five minutes to assemble and adjust an AV Stumpfl mobile projection screen system, including height adjustments.

Commented Tobias Stumpfl, CEO of AV Stumpfl: “Small details can make a great difference. When experienced AV professionals suddenly ask you: “Why haven’t we been doing it this way all along?”, you know you are on to something good. The technological vision that led to the creation of the T-32 Shift has been shaped not only by our own ideas, but also by direct customer feedback. We are looking forward to officially introducing the T-32 Shift at this year’s ISE.”

In addition to a broad line-up of award winning projection screens, AV Stumpfl will also present their media server hardware and software products at ISE, including the new Wings Vioso RX 2.2.

Some key developments in this new software release include:

  • A Creator License which works without dongle protection and can be used for show production and as a show master
  • New real-time effects
  • Preview engine based on the Wings RX Render Engine

With the RX 2.2, users can also specify hot backup clients for multiple playout clients. The hot backup client gets all the information needed to replace the playout client during playback — all necessary media files are also copied to the hot backup client. In the highly unlikely event of a playout client failure, the hot backup client can then take the playout client’s job without the need to edit IP addresses.

Another highlight of the AV Stumpfl product portfolio is the popular UHD Player system. The solid state UHD Player system was developed for professional 24/7 installation environments. It can play files with a 4K resolution of 4096×2160 @60fps, using the H.265 codec. Multiple UHD Players can be frame synchronized via IP networks using a dedicated synchronization protocol. Users can switch between different multi-language audio tracks while a video is running, which makes the AV Stumpfl UHD Player system a perfect choice for international museums and exhibition spaces.

The flagship Wings Engine RAW 8K server will also be shown at ISE. It is the world’s most powerful media server of its kind for uncompressed content playback, delivering up to four simultaneous streams of uncompressed 4K (4:4:4) content at 60fps.

Booth visitors will be able to see the automatic Wings Vioso camera-calibration feature in action and use interactive Wings Touch controls.

AV Stumpfl will exhibit at ISE (6 – 9 February 2018, RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands) on booth #1-H10 and is here.
