Artistic Licence Launch New Media Server Pixi-Stream

Pixi-Stream media server is one of the new products being exhibited by Artistic Licence at Plasa 2006.
It outputs Art-Net ethernet directly rather than video. This saves an additional conversion process when driving high density LED arrays such as the Artistic Licence Pixi-Web.
Pixi-Stream is supplied as a module for the Artistic Licence MOAP product which is also to be launched at PLASA 2006. This allows MOAP to be simply integrated with other control and distribution modules such as DMX512 conversion.
The product accepts PAL, NTSC, SECAM and S-Video input directly. Additional video inputs or digital video sources can be added with expansion modules. Pixi-Stream supports up to four real time video sources.
Pixi-Stream is configured via a sophisticated graphical user interface. The front panel provides ports for connection of monitor, mouse and keyboard for the configuration phase. Configuration is very fast via ‘wizard’ style interfaces. Libraries for well known composite LED products are included. RDM (Remote Device Programming) is supported which offers extremely fast patching. An example being approximately three minutes to patch a 1600 pixel wall of Hi-Res Pixi-Web.
Once configuration is complete, all features are controlled from an external lighting board. Connection is via Art-Net ethernet as standard, DMX512 control may be implemented with an additional module. Pixi-Stream is controlled is the same manner as a sophisticated moving lamp. A total of 8 layers are supported, outputting to 20,000 channels of control.
The content of each layer, the digital effects and the layer to layer mixing are all controlled in real time from the lighting board. Each layer can process live video, graphics or animation files. Digital effects can be applied to each layers independently. There is a large library of effects that include Pan, Tilt, Magnify, Stretch, Rotate in any 3D plane, Colour replacement and Cyclic Hue Adjustment.
Artistic Licence is exhibiting at PLASA 2006 on Stand G12. F
