The gx range has been designed to facilitate generative content and builds on the disguise legacy of pushing colour, clarity and complexity of shows to new limits.
With the gx range, users can render video, audio, MIDI, tracking and automation data or interactive inputs in real-time for shows that respond to their environments.
Goodwin says CFS was eager to acquire the gx range as “this platform will allow us to be directly in the line of fire, developing fantastic art as we move forward,” he declares. “We’re still exploring the multiple capabilities of our new gx servers: Notch, for instance, has great rendering capabilities, and the disguise environment allows for multitudes of third-party integrations, such as BlackTrax. Having those capabilities will enable us to take on new and exciting projects in the future.”
CFS invested in 4x4pro media servers in 2015 for the Taylor Swift tour; “disguise works extremely well with all CFS platforms, including Encore Bridge, E2 Bridge, Conductor and Router Bridge, and is a reliable, trusted workhorse in our workflow,” Goodwin reports.
The 4x4pros have also been used for NBC Universal upfronts, Robin Hood Foundation galas and investors’ conference, the NBA All Star Games and Bon Jovi’s current “This House Is Not for Sale” tour.
