Posted on Friday, November 1st, 2013
Following their successful PLASA London presence, Avolites and Avolites Media are heading to LDI at the Las Vegas Convention Center, November 22 – 24, to launch an array of new servers, fader wings, and consoles.
Avolites Media will continue this year’s launch of benchmark products by unveiling the S Series media servers, and Ai V7. The Ai S2, S4, and S6 are Avolites Media’s latest server systems that offer two, four, and six display port / DVI outputs. They also feature the latest third generation PCIexpress motherboards, new series AMD graphics cards, and PCIexpress SSD drives. In addition, the Salvation Engine can be easily configured to provide up to 64 layers of PIPs with a single server.
Plus the Avolites team will join the team from US distributor Group One to show off the anticipated Tiger Touch II. The intuitive console now offers a hybrid of fast accessible, “hands-on” control, and a brighter and larger touch screen. With a more powerful processor, faster graphics chip set, and the Titan version 7 operating system with free Titan upgrades.
Also being unveiled is the new Sapphire Touch Wing, which gives an additional 30 motorized faders and a third hi-res touch screen. The Sapphire Media Wing enables local video control for the Ai media servers.
The new Titan Fader Wing enables expansion of every Avolites Titan console, giving programmers direct access to items that they regularly use.
Avolites Media will be in LDI booth 230 and Avolites Ltd will share booth 229 with entertainment technology distributor Group One.
Group One president Jack Kelly comments: “We’re absolutely delighted to be hosting Avolites on the Group One booth. Avolites is one of the great prestige brands in the lighting industry and all of us at Group One are looking forward to further developing the work we have been doing in the US market at LDI.”
Brad White, national sales manager for the Avolites division at Group One, will also be on hand. White has worked extensively with Avolites products and says he is thrilled to be representing the Avolites brand for the first time at LDI this year. “For the past six months Group One has focused on the development of the Avolites brand in America working with lighting designers, specifiers, dealers, production companies, and facilities,” says White. “We are looking forward to demoing all of the new products and offering users hands-on experience of their new capabilities.”
Steve Warren, managing director for Avolites Media adds, “The Avolites Media and Avolites Ltd teams are definitely looking forward to demonstrating our latest products at LDI. Joining forces with Group One is a great boost for the Avolites Brand. The last couple of years have seen Avolites Media’s flagship product, the Ai Infinity Media Server, and subsequently the Sapphire Media Console, along with the Avolites Sapphire Touch and Tiger Touch, program and deliver some of the richest and most electrifying visual feasts for the most stunning, international and televised live events on earth. Avolites Media is now launching a series of new servers, with incredible power and capabilities and both Avolites Media and Avolites are launching extension wing consoles for the Sapphire Media and Titan consoles respectively. This further expands both companies’ ranges along with the control and creativity our products can separately, or collectively, offer users.”
More than 8,000 people who work in theatre, live music and other performance-related industry are expected at LDI this year.
