Austria - Pushing the limits of what can be achieved in video playback, Austria's AV Stumpfl has introduced "the world's first and only triple-stream 4K uncompressed media server, Wings Engine Raw".

"With Wings Engine Raw, we've delivered on user requests for the smoothest possible uncompressed playback system with full timeline control," says Horst Damoser, sales manager at AV Stumpfl. "Built to support a range of applications requiring a high-quality image sources matched to particular display requirements, user benefits include newer, faster and unrivalled installation functionality."

Using a single custom engineered RAID 10 system, Wings Engine Raw is capable of delivering constant data stream of three-channels of true 4K (4,096 x 2,304 pixels) uncompressed video content at 60fps plus up to 16 text and picture layers, and up to 24 uncompressed audio streams. The server removes the need to convert content into any intermediate codec format. Content can include native picture sequences such as TGA or TIFF and even instant PNG image format processing.

Wings Engine Raw is capable of processing and delivering video content at the full 4:4:4 colour sampling ensuring picture perfect quality and colour accuracy for the most demanding of installation environments.

This data system not only features a massive data throughput but also features redundancy. For example, should one of the SSDs fail, the data rate and the system's functionality in general will not be impaired.

Wings Engine Raw hosts the new WingsRX render core engine which has been developed and optimized especially for premium picture quality applications. Its 64bit program architecture and clever usage of SSE CPU instructions ensures unequalled decentralized processing power. The software has been designed for a wide range of applications such as themed attractions, digital signage, trade shows, live events and full dome systems.

Wings Engine Raw is complemented by AV Stumpfl's proven embedded operating system, Backup-Manager, features a dedicated EDID management as well the award-winning automatic camera based calibration system for soft-edge blending, warp and geometry mapping, all operable by time line control.

Wings Engine Raw is based on professional server technology derived from IT data center equipment. Inside the rack mount system is a Xeon CPU, redundant high performance power supply, 2x10 GBit LAN, server chipset, up to 8 3G-SDI live inputs and Displayport 1.2 and DVI-D output connectors.
