AV Stumpfl said it will introduce its new Wings Engine Stage media server, supporting playback at up to 4K uncompressed, at the Prolight+Sound 2017 show next month in Frankfurt, Germany.
The new Wings Engine Stage is built to withstand the physical stress of being built into live presentation environments, the company said. “The original Wings Engine Stage was already very robust and built from stainless steel,” said AV Stumpfl Technical Director Fred Nelinger in a prepared statement. “We created an improved system architecture that is even more shock-absorbent and is truly fantastic for all rental and staging environments.”
New features include an upgraded processor, four DisplayPort 1.2 outputs for a maximum resolution of 4096x2160p60, and framelock and genlock inputs. Audio includes six balanced analog outputs, a stereo headphone jack, SPDIF and AES out, and ADAT in and out.
The server comes standard with 1.9 TB of SSD storage, with up to 7.6 TB of RAID 0 storage available as an option.
Also on display at the show will be AV Stumpfl’s performance-oriented Wings Engine Raw server, which supports four streams of uncompressed 4K 60p — in other words, enough for 8K playback.
