PLASA 2015: d3 Technologies to launch suite of new products25 September 2015
d3 Technologies will unveil its new r12 software, 2x2plus media server and VFC output cards at PLASA 2015 at the ExCel Centre, London on 4-6 October.
The r12 software offers a range of new features including Dynamic Blend, which calculates edge-blend masks in real time, even if objects are moving. It also includes Content Management features for faster workflows with built-in version management and the ability to introduce file proxies. The Universal CrossFade feature (pictured) enables a soft transition between any two sections, tracks or external triggers of a show without being restricted by the timeline sequence.
d3’s failover and understudy ability has been upgraded with the use of individual matrix routing instructions to allow re-routing during failover situations and now supports CAST Software’s BlackTrax.
The 2x2plus media server is designed for small events, theatre productions, and fixed and architectural installations where less outputs are needed. As every d3 hardware platform, the d3 2x2plus comes with the same suite of d3 software pre-installed.
The 2x2plus is available as a base unit featuring two 2560×1600 outputs, and an extra output reserved for the GUI. Factory-fitted additional extras include 3G-SDI, DVI capture and Pro-Audio, making the system a flexible solution for a wide variety of applications.
Also on show at PLASA will be d3 Technologies’ new VFC cards. Accessories to the d3 4x4pro, d3’s replaceable VFC cards enable users to mix and swap video signals, driving up to 16HD outputs as DVI or SDI (1080p), or 4x4K DP1.2 from a single d3 4x4pro system. Large multi-projector shows can be delivered with fewer machines, no downstream splitters, and practically no signal latency.
