Germany - d3 Technologies, manufacturers of the world's first integrated video production system, announced their new pro range during Prolight+Sound 2014. Consisting of two new hardware products, the pro range was announced alongside r11.2, d3's new software release with four new features aiming to help improve show design and production workflow. With the company's strong focus on innovation, d3 Technologies continues to strive to enable d3 users to create and deliver the best shows on earth.

The top of the range solution, the d3 4x4pro sets a new standard for power and adaptability. With industrial components in a custom case, this system is suitable for the most complex touring productions, massive multi-projector shows and broadcast. It features four 4K outputs and enough power to make short work of the largest content sizes. Play up to eight layers of uncompressed HD or 4x4K (DXV/HAP-Q) with d3's Push Every Pixel technology.

The d3 4x2pro is a fully revamped version of the popular d3 4U v2.5. Featuring the same custom case, low-latency video capture, genlock and lockable connectors as the d3 4x4pro, the d3 4x2pro is the improved robust solution for concerts, theatres and projection mapping shows. Although the d3 4x2pro is a faster and more powerful system than the 4U v2.5, it still 'plays nicely with others' when using it in configuration with the existing d3 4U v2.5 or a new d3 4x4pro. Play 16HD from one system with our Push Every Pixel technology.* Like the d3 4x4pro, the d3 4x2pro will be ready to ship in June.

The upcoming software release, r11.2, is focused on improving ease of use and allowing for a wider range of users. r11.2 will be available from May for existing and new d3 users.
