Germany - Design, programming, and lighting/video direction experts Einstein & Sons has chosen to boost its arsenal of innovative visuals engines by investing in Avolites Media's industry-leading Ai Media Servers.

Einstein & Sons, which was founded in 2013 by lighting designers Roland Greil and Michael Kuehbandner, offers design and consulting, programming, lighting and video direction, media server programming and hire alongside pre-production services, to a wide range of clients.

Recent projects include supplying media server services to the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, design work for Sony and Samsung Booths 2009-2013, design work at the FIS Ski World Cup Munich 2010-2012, as well as associate design work for internationally successful designers like Patrick Woodroffe.

"By investing in Avolites Media's Ai Servers, we feel like we've invested in the future of server technology," explains Michael Kuehbandner. "We decided to work with Ai for a specific reason - to push the boundaries of real-time video playback and manipulation as far as we can. Ai's incredible visualization capabilities enable us to easily work within a virtual 3D environment."

Roland Greil adds: "It definitely sets new standards in this genre and considerably improves the efficiency of the whole production process. However, another key factor affecting our decision is the system's performance and the multiple interactivity possibilities using the powerful Salvation engine."

The award winning, record breaking Ai Infinity server features an incredible 8 Full HD outputs, and a front panel mounted touch screen, which enables local control, system analysis and remote preview. Conveniently, each DVI output has an accompanying preview output. The Ai Infinity also includes internal EDID management, LTC and MIDI Time-code, Genloc Input, Multi-Server Frame-sync and Master-Slave remote control.

"We are delighted to see our Ai Servers are being utilised by such a forward-thinking, innovative production and design house," says Avolites Media's Managing Director Steve Warren. "The Avolites Media team is a long-time fan of Einstein & Sons' visionary work and direction on a variety of major projects. We're really very excited to see where Ai can take them in 2014. We already know that the team from Einstein & Sons are currently working on a number of projects using Ai servers, in particular projects that involve interactive content and there are some interesting upcoming projects in the pipeline, so watch this space!"
