University of South Wales – Video Technology Demonstration Day

Production AV is always on the lookout to support up and coming individuals in the event production industry. So we were excited to be collaborating with the University of South Wales Live Event and Lighting CourseStage Sound Services, Ashley Raines from Barco and Peter Kirkup from disguise to provide their students with a hands on experience using some of our industry leading video production equipment as well as offer advice and insight into the exciting but enigmatic industry we find ourselves in!

USW Video Technology Demonstration Day

USW Video Technologies Demonstration Day 1

Our aim was to provide two workshops for the students to experience and test the capabilities of our equipment. Our first workshop revolved around our DigiLED 3.9mm Indoor LED Screen as well as a Barco UDX-4K32 4K Laser Projector generously provided by Barco. 4K video was fed from our disguise 2x4pro Media Server into our Barco S3-4K Screen Management System and Barco EC-50 Event Controller so students could experience how these tools could be used with projection and LED technologies in event production scenarios. Features like PIP’s (Pictures in Pictures), luma keys and widescreen blend capabilities were demonstrated to show how easy it was to create slick and impressive video solutions whilst having the processing power to manage up to twelve different video inputs.

USW Video Technologies Demonstration Day 2

Having recently invested in disguise 2x4pro Media Servers, we wanted our second workshop to demonstrate the capabilities of these media servers. As our 2x4pro’s were driving a large scale project at the Geneva Motor Show Convention, disguise stepped in and provided a GX1 Media Server. With the assistance of Peter from disguise, four sessions were run throughout the day where students setup a projection mapping solution onto a model car displaying the power and vast creative opportunities that the disguise systems offer.

It was a pleasure putting on this demonstration day for USW students and we’d like to thank the University for hosting us as well as Stage Sound Services, Barco and disguise for attending and helping us create this informative and engaging demonstration of our video technologies. We’re looking forward to seeing some of the students out on site in the near future!

Major Investment in disguise 2x4pro Media Servers

Production AV are proud and excited to announce joining the disguise family through our £200,000 investment into diguise 2x4pro Media Servers. The 2x4pro’s provide two 4k outputs, or with the Video Format Convertor Cards, up to 8 HD outputs hitting the technical requirements for the everyday show or project but also having the capabilities for pushing pixels on larger events. Output flexibility can be critical and the 2x4pro comes natively with two DisplayPort outputs however Production AV can supply for them to be swapped out for either Quad SDI or Dual DVI VFC cards.

Another key feature of the disguise platform is the ability to work from the initial concept through to delivery onsite within the disguise environment allowing for pre visualisation at the sales, design and implantation phases. This can help take the pain of misunderstanding away from projects.

We are delighted to announce that our stock of disguise 2x4pro’s didn’t even reach the warehouse after the purchase as they immediately went on tour with one of our long term clients.

Please do contact us through call or email us if you would like a quotation for a particular project, or a demo of the capabilities of the server.
