Disguise is the world’s first integrated video production platform with collaborative tools and streamlined workflows for designing, sequencing and playing back shows. By using one toolkit from beginning to end disguise customers save time and money and gain the confidence and ability to make changes on the fly without expensive and time consuming re-rendering.
Disguise will show its flagship 4×4pro with Video Format Conversion (VFC) Quad-SDI output cards. VFC output cards are an industry first: no other media server on the market offers the ability to gracefully transition from HD to 4K.
The VFC cards enable users to drive up to 16 HD or four 4K DVI outputs (1080p, 60Hz) from a single 4×4pro system so large, multi-projector shows can be delivered with fewer machines and no downstream splitter devices. This drastically reduces cost, rack space, set-up time and complexity; all without adding practically any signal latency.
The 4×4pro ships with standard DisplayPort 1.2 VFC cards to drive up to four 4K outputs per server. They can be swapped for Quad-DVI or Quad-SDI cards as needed.
Also on the stand, will be the 2×2plus, which brings the versatility and flexibility of the disguise platform to small events, theatres, fixed and architectural installations where budget is key but performance is critical.
The 2×2plus supports a wide array of codecs: DXV, HAP, HAP-Q, PJPEG and QT Animation. It drives two 2K outputs and has an extra output for the GUI; it plays 8 HD content layers (DXV/HAP) and two HD lossless content layers (QT Animation). The server has up to 16K pixels content canvas size and offers on-board or pro audio and dual 1Gbit/sec Ethernet.
Disguise’s new r13 software release will also be in the spotlight which was released in May. r13 has a mix of new and improved features, including a refreshed new look UI and new HMSF timeline which enhances the well known disguise workflow. Additionally there are improvements to matrix control, timecode readout module and an upgraded web module.
