WorldStage Deploys d3 4x4pros with New VFC Quad DVI Output Cards During New York Fashion Week

 

16_hd_20k_blended_12__x_148_._alexander_wang_fashion___New York (September 22, 2015) – WorldStage became one of the first companies to use d3 Technologies’ media servers with new VFC (Video Format Conversion) Quad DVI output cards for a live event in the US when it deployed the equipment during the fall edition of New York Fashion Week. The event marked the tenth anniversary of a major designer with a celebratory avant garde video screening following his runway show.

WorldStage is a long-time supporter of both Fashion Week and d3 Technologies. For the designer’s anniversary event WorldStage provided one main and one backup d3 4×4 pro with four VFC Quad DVI output cards, which fed 9 sets of Christie Digital HD20K-J series projectors. The Quad DVI cards, which enable users to drive up to 16 DVI outputs from a single 4x4pro system, allow large, multi-projector shows to be delivered with fewer machines and no downstream splitter devices. This drastically reduces cost, rack space, set up time and complexity without adding any signal latency.

“Two 4x4pros with Quad DVI cards fed nine stacks of dual-converged projectors displaying video on a single screen 180 feet and 15K pixels wide,” says WorldStage President Josh Weisberg. “Previously, we would have had to use five main 4x4pros and five back ups. The new Quad DVI cards cut hardware requirements and client rental costs significantly. They permit us to offer clients more economical use of a very high-end media server.”

VFC output cards are an industry first: No other media server on the market offers the ability to easily transition from HD to 4K. The move to 4K is already underway at WorldStage, which has taken the lead in 4K projection technology.

“The Quad DVI output cards will be a big advantage for 4K video, too,” Weisberg notes. “We own Christie’s new 4K flagship projector, the Boxer 4K30, and are starting to deploy it on events,” Weisberg notes. “The 4x4pros with Quad DVI output cards will be a big advantage for 4K video, too. They are a natural complement for the Christie Boxer.”

WorldStage Inc., the company created by the merger of Scharff Weisberg Inc and Video Applications Inc, continues a thirty-year legacy of providing clients the widest variety of entertainment technology coupled with conscientious and imaginative engineering services. WorldStage provides audio, video and lighting equipment and services to the event, theatrical, broadcast and brand experience markets nationally and internationally.
