Two AV Stumpfl PIXERA two quad media servers with live input cards have been deployed as part of the video and media content hardware solution for the One FM Starnight, which was celebrated on May 20 in front of 8,000 fans at the Arena de Genève (Switzerland).
Acclaimed show and content designer Timo Martens was tasked with creating the video and media content, with media server specialists REC Tec AG retained for the complex show production. As well as PIXERA, a Lightware HDMI matrix switcher was deployed for switching between main and backup sources and a Focusrite audio interface for the audio playout.
PIXERA was used for creating important countdown screens for the continuity control, by adding HTML pages in the form of a “resource” to a layer of the media server system’s software interface, which were then played out via one of the outputs as “picture-in-picture”.
The popular event’s general broadcast setup was delivered by NEP Switzerland, with technical provider Skynight supporting the show with additional lighting, audio and rigging equipment, which included large LED video walls.
Timo Martens designed the high resolution video content for the long awaited event, which attracted more than 8,000 mostly young One FM fans.
The REC Tec AG team were able to enjoy a smoothly executed show event and highly positive customer feedback: “Our customer was really satisfied with the overall show, and in particular with the fact that we were able to react quickly to any content updates and changes during the rehearsals. PIXERA served us very well throughout the whole process,” said Michael Memmersheim from REC Tec.
