AV Stumpfl: New solid-state players11 February 2015
Making their first major public appearance in Europe since their launch in November are two new solid-state video players from AV Stumpfl. Designed for playback of content at resolutions up to UHD, multiple players can be frame-synchronised via the network and new content can be delivered via the internet. The players, which feature a customisable web interface and numerous control options, are fully integrated into AV Stumpfl’s Avio communication layer for turnkey use in themed attractions and networked digital signage systems.
Wings Avio is a network protocol that has been developed specifically for the requirements of the event industry with regard to real-time capability, reliability and usability. It is the infrastructure of the Wings AV System.
The principle behind Avio Manager is to make complex structures operable by allowing easy and decentralised management of all nodes. Various functions, such as drag and drop, graphic network display or grouping allow users to maintain an overview of the numerous sources and, says the company, to work quickly and effectively.
The properties of every node can be visualised and modified in a browser window. Mobile devices such as mobile phones or tablets can also access all components via the web interface. This decentralised architecture improves system stability, according to AV Stumpfl, since all components communicate directly and can act independently of each other.
Almost any device with a LAN or serial interface can be integrated into the Avio network via the corresponding driver. For example, projectors can be controlled by linking them up with Wings Vioso or Wings Touch.
