Avolites and Avolites Media – heading for Frankfurt
Germany - Avolites and Avolites Media are powering up the latest stable of products to be unveiled at this year's Prolight + Sound.

The show promises to be Avolites' biggest presence yet. Avolites and Avolites Media will take their own dedicated stand at Frankfurt - Hall 11.0 Stand D40 - but will also be exhibiting with longstanding friend and partner, Trendco, also in Hall 11.0 B41A.

Avolites Media will showcase the new S-Series Media Servers, along with the latest generation in the Infinity line, the Ai Infinity EX series.

The Ai S2, S4 and S6 media server are the latest server systems from Avolites Media and offer two, four and six Display Port / DVI outputs respectively. They feature 3rd generation PCI Express motherboards, graphics cards and RAID SSD drives for unrivalled performance along with 4K Ultra HD capability in the S4, S6 and S8 servers. The Dual Processor, highest specification S6 server also performs up to Apple Pro Res 4444 playback.

All systems are supplied with a fully featured Ai Miami licence, which allows for eight discrete fixture groups with four layers each, producing a formidable 32 media layers. In addition, the Salvation Engine can be easily configured to provide up to 64 layers of PIPs with a single server.

The Ai Infinity server, a record-breaker in the industry offering eight unique full HD DVI outputs, has also been upgraded to the Infinity EX. Like the S-Series, the Infinity EX now boasts third generation PCI Express motherboards and graphics cards providing unparalleled performance.

Alongside these features, the Infinity EX range has a wealth of further capabilities such as a front panel touch screen displaying the Ai Visualiser, internal EDIT management and Dual Preview and Projection outputs.

Avolites will preview the Titan V8 software, with brand new System Networking features to be unveiled on stand on day one!

The team will also unveil wings for the Sapphire, Titan Mobile and an exciting preview of the Tiger Touch Wing. The Sapphire Touch Wing gives an additional 30 Motorised Faders and third hi res touch screen. The Sapphire Media Wing enables local video control of the Ai media servers. The Titan Mobile Wing enables expansion of every Avolites Titan console, giving direct access to items that are always needed.

In addition, the entire Titan range will be available for demo and hands-on experience, including two Titan Network Processor systems.

The Avolites and Avolites Media teams will also be offering hands-on demos of sophisticated projection-mapping in the dedicated 'workshop corner' of the stand, so visitors to the Frankfurt event won't miss the chance to see the brand new Ai servers in action.

Avolites and Avolites Media will be joined by the formidable and respected team from Einstein and Sons, Michael Kühbandner, Roland Greil and Thomas Döhring, who will demonstrate the capabilities of the powerful Ai software by showing off a variety of their own cutting edge projects using the Ai system.
