Avolites & Avolites Media at ABTT 2012

The Ai MSC-1 control system

3 July 2012

UK - Avolites and Avolites Media report a busy ABTT show. On show were the Sapphire Touch and Titan Software - Version 6 along with the Ai AiS-T Media Server and MSC-1 control surface.

Selvin Cooper, part of the technical support team for Avolites Media, demonstrated the new MSC-1 control. "The new console offers visual designers an instinctive live show control system that delivers seamless integration of all visual content including video, lighting and projection from a single console," Cooper states. "The console connects directly to the Ai Media server for super fast access to the Salvation node based configuration engine via a touch screen laptop. MSC-1 provides instant access to effects, layers and clips and offers ten assignable faders that can be mapped to any server function. The console is generously furnished with a number of direct access buttons for layers, blend mode selection and transport control."

Also on show was the Ai AiS-T Media Server, which enables smooth playback of multilayer 4k resolution content with up to four full 1080p HD outputs arranged in a timeline timecode sequencer. Users can create and build shows in a 3D Stage Visualizer then use the powerful mapping capabilities for rapid, precise mapping and warping onto any 3D surface. Tightly integrated support for 3D displays, LEDs, moving lights and other visual elements enable designers to merge video and lighting with un-matched control.

Meanwhile, Avolites presented its latest version of the Sapphire Touch, the company's flagship touring desk. Stephen Baird Smith, sales engineer for Avolites comments, "As ever we've had an excellent response to The Sapphire Touch, which now features the Titan V6 operating system, dual touch screen monitors and enhanced workflow. Smooth automated playback is via 45 motorised faders and a tri-colour optical trackball allows designers easy access to the X, Y, Z axis for simultaneous control."

"We were delighted to be able to show off so many exciting new products to our friends and customers," says Steve Warren, sales director for Avolites and managing director of Avolites Media. "Avolites has invested substantially in the development of Titan, perfecting the operating system, guided by user requests and feedback. Avolites Media's Ai servers continue to attract plenty of attention, which goes to show how flexible and powerful they are. I'm of course delighted to see both Avolites and Avolites Media thriving and I'm looking forward to seeing the latest developments being used in the field very soon."
