FIX8 Receives New Shipment From 5 Star Cases

News Image
Show technology, control and integration provider the FIX8 Group has purchased a new shipment of flight cases from 5 Star Cases, bringing the total now to over 60 x 5 Star-built units.
Specially modified shock mounted 19" rack systems have been customiszed to fit FIX8's media server systems, which vary in height from between 12 and 30 units.
The racks also house all the required peripherals needed for a complete media server video processing system, including PPUs, support racks and cameral channel control racks.
FIX8 also has more cases which are designed to house four 24 inch monitors, complete with DVI cables and stands. All complete systems are individually tailored to the project, installation or tour.
"It's extremely important to protect our investment whilst it's out on the road working," says FIX8's MD Neil Trenell.
"And so good quality cases are absolutely essential – it's a no brainer on which we absolutely don't compromise. The kit will always look great if properly cased as well as lasting a good deal longer."
5 Star now has the templates of regular FIX8 designs, enabling quick delivery and facilitating adaptations and modifications.
FIX8 has just bought another 12 cases to house their latest d3 and Green Hippo media servers which went immediately out on the road, with 12 of the Hippotizers supplied to a 360 degree projection job in Paris and also a separate show in Tenerife.
Keith Sykes, MD of 5 Star says: "We are very proud to be supplying leading technology specialists like FIX8. Their needs for protecting precision equipment are slightly different from standard off the shelf products, so for us that's always interesting."
