Poland’s TVP 2 uses the new disguise 2x4pro Media Server for video mapping

The disguise 2×4pro media server was chosen for the broadcast because of its “flexibility to arrange outputs, ability to play large content files and distribute them through feed mapping, and the possibility to visualize everything in 3D,” says Wojtek “Koper” Koperski, disguise operator from disguise new rental partner in Poland, ARAM.

The new 2×4pro, like the flagship 4×4pro, supports the disguise popular interchangeable VFC (Video Format Conversion) cards, enabling users to drive up to 8 outputs as DVI, 3G-SDI or two DP1.2 from a single 2×4pro, which future proof the system as the industry continues to rapidly evolve.

The gala program marked the first time that Koper worked with disguise. “I fell in love with this media server,” he says. “For the last couple of years I worked mostly on another system and now I can’t believe how hard it was to do certain things on that system!”

Koper says, “pre-programming with disguise was perfect, all of us could see what the stage and content would look like.” He found the Sock Puppet feature “particularly helpful because all the layers were controlled through Art-Net. Another great function was the ability to assign every DMX parameter separately, for example, one DMX channel controlled the dimmer.” He also found the 2×4pro’s eight DVI outputs gave him “the flexibility to arrange outputs for the individual LED modules, which meant the possibility to create lots of feed maps.”

Koper has also recently finished working on the Intel Extreme Masters 2017, with “disguise at the heart of the multimedia” system.

Krzysztof Grabowski from Prolight, Poland, provided disguise technical support for the New Year’s Eve extravaganza. Adam Tyszka was the lighting designer and Piotr Szablinski from Razor Light Studio did the video design.
