Avolites unveils Ai V8's revolutionary 'Autoblend' feature at ISE2015 Amsterdam
The Avolites team will be on stand 8-K300 at ISE, which runs from 10-12 February at the Amsterdam RAI. Also exhibiting Avolites' range of products will be Avolites' new Dutch dealer, Improve, which will be on stand 8-L395.
Running on Avolites' industry-leading range of Ai media servers, the new V8 software includes the revolutionary new Autoblend feature, distinctly setting Ai apart from the competition by allowing blending of large projection surfaces using multiple projectors. In addition, there is a brand new Surface Modelling page for the creation of editable 3D sets, and performance is hugely improved, with render engine optimisation offering 50% increased video throughput. Compositing high-resolution background layers with low-resolution foreground layers is also much improved.
"We are incredibly excited by the increased functionality of Ai version 8," says Steve Warren, Avolites MD. "Word of mouth has been spreading like wildfire through our visual community of the revolutionary camera blend, easy LED Mapping and 3D modelling and visualisation capabilities of V8. The new and simplified Ai user interface has brought a stampede of new users to Ai and we're excited to exhibit it at ISE."
Improve's Antoinette Wijffels comments: "Improve is proud to become an Avolites dealer - we are impressed by the quality and growing functionality Avolites' media products are offering, especially with V8. At ISE, Improve will show its 'Wonder Cabinet', a mix of 3D projection and effects, where you can see how shows are created and how the Ai V8 media server makes things possible. Improve has also designed the Commercial Solutions Theatre at ISE, where one can see Ai at work. If you visit the Commercial Solutions Theatre on stand 8M-370, our team will be happy to answer any questions."
Alongside Avolites' Ai range, the company will also be exhibiting the compact-yet-powerful Quartz lighting console, running Titan V8, which makes its Continental European debut. Measuring only 42.5cm wide at a weight of just 8kg, the compact console comes complete with on-board processing and a bright, vibrant 12.1" screen and is aimed at the touring market.
Avolites is on stand 8-K300 at ISE from 10-12 February at the Amsterdam RAI. Improve is on stand8-L395.
