AV Stumpfl to Present New Projection Solutions at InfoComm 2023
AV Stumpfl’s new Flex Black PRO projection surface will have its official U.S. premiere at the upcoming InfoComm show in Orlando, FL. The black surface material offers “phenomenal” black levels and an “impressive” contrast ratio, according to the company.
Jan Walter, AV Stumpfl sales director screens, explained what makes the new surface material so special: “Usually one cannot project onto a black surface in a truly satisfactory way, because the image would often hardly be visible due to the lack of diffuse reflection. Flex Black PRO solves exactly this problem in an exemplary way and makes it possible to project onto black surfaces with virtually any color and dynamic range. The reactions to our new product have been extremely enthusiastic and we can’t wait to finally show it to our U.S. customers!”
In addition to the introduction of Flex Black PRO, AV Stumpfl will also present its AnyShape technology, which makes it possible for AV professionals to order custom built projection screens with a variety of different frame shapes. The ability to build frame shapes that are not rectangular—like circles, donut shapes, or screens with rounded corners—can revolutionize the way in which designers creatively use projection surfaces, says the company.
AV Stumpfl president Todd Liedahl highlighted the creative possibilities of AnyShape: “We are not looking at just one static product, but a whole set of projection screen related technologies which allow us to offer premium quality frame shapes that nobody else can build. We want to give designers more options to tell exactly the stories they want to tell without being forced to only think in terms of rectangular shapes.“
Media server professionals and other InfoComm visitors interested in the latest real-time rendering and show control trends will also have the opportunity to discover new features of the upcoming PIXERA software version 2.0 for the first time at InfoComm.
One of the undisputed highlights of the new version is its multi-user workflow capability, which will allow media server operators to be much more flexible and efficient when working on complex installations or show environments.
Multiple PIXERA director licenses can now be synched, with users being able to choose between different levels of granularity when working within a multi-user scenario.
Complete projects can be shared in real-time, or alternatively single project parts like warpings or timelines. Should they wish to, users can also choose to share every single editing action among the connected systems.
New N+1 backup options and dry client programming capabilities are additional feature highlights of the new PIXERA 2.0 software.
AV professionals with an interest in projection mapping will welcome the advanced layer mapping effects which provide complete freedom to map content pixels to screens based on the position of the screens in space.
In PIXERA 2.0, each screen group will also have an independent set of perspectives that determines how layers are seen through the screens they appear on.
As a result of this, PIXERA‘s perspective management will now allow for different mapping approaches for individual media resources, making it possible for some files to be shown as 2D overlays while others are positioned in a 3D space.
Global business development manager Conor McGill underlined the importance of version 2.0: “This version opens a new chapter for our international user community. The combination of so many powerful features and workflow improvements sends a clear message that the PIXERA platform is here to stay.”
AV Stumpfl GmbH will exhibit at InfoComm 2023 in Booth 3823.
