disguise show new quad-DVI VFC cards at Prolight 2015

disguise will display an industry leading solution for its flagship 4×4pro media server when it unveils the first Video Format Conversion (VFC) quad DVI output card at the Prolight + Sound exhibition 2015, April 15-18. disguise will exhibit at Booth C35, Hall 9 at Messe Frankfurt, Germany.

The quad DVI VFC cards enable users to drive up to 16 DVI outputs (1080p, 60Hz) from a single 4×4pro system. This allows large, multi-projector shows to be delivered with fewer machines and no downstream splitter devices. This drastically reduces cost, rack space, set-up time and complexity; all without adding any signal latency. Users can also swap to DisplayPort 1.2 to drive up to four 4K outputs per server.

VFC output cards are an industry first: no other media server on the market offers the ability to gracefully transition from HD to 4K as 4K proliferates. As new signal standards gain popularity, disguise will release new output cards to handle them.

VFC output cards are another example of how the 4×4pro sets a new standard for power, flexibility and convenience. Featuring next-generation components in a rugged custom case, the media server is ideal for the most demanding touring productions, massive multi-projection shows, TV programming, broadcast operations and high-end fixed installations.

The 4×4pro can Push Every Pixel™ playing up to eight layers of 4K video, 32 layers of HD video (DXV/HAP codecs at 30fps) and up to eight layers of uncompressed HD video (Animation codec at 30fps), all with content up to 16K pixels across.

Two 10Gb/s Ethernet ports allow huge quantities of content to be transferred in just minutes – a real plus for high-pressure show environments.
