Avolites Unleashes Q-Series Media Servers to Power Every Performance

Avolites will be announcing its new range of Q-Series media servers in spring 2020 to provide the ideal media processing solution for every project and performance

Avolites will be announcing its full range of Q-Series media servers, designed to meet all of your pixel processing needs for every performance and project, along with its new Ai v12.1 release offering Pioneer PRO DJ LINK Bridge integration software. The full lineup of media servers includes the Q3, Q3pro, Q4 and Qgen, giving you the complete solution to power every performance.

Video content and projection mapping have become major components in many of today’s performances and installations, and with Avolites’ Synergy feature set, integrating video into your designs has become even easier. Hence, the next step for Avolites was to create the ideal hardware to complement its powerful Ai software.

“Seeing the projects and shows that Ai has been used on made us realize that we needed to provide servers powerful enough to meet the creative vision of our users,” says Avolites Ai Lead Developer Ciaran Abrams.

The Q3pro is the perfect portable server for the more demanding shows with two 4k outputs and one HD along with EDID-managed HDMI outputs.

The Q4 gives you the power to deliver breathtaking detail with four 4k outputs and flexible input modules so you can design your server to meet the most demanding needs.

With the rise in use of interactive real-time generative content providers like Notch, the Qgen is designed to deliver stunning graphics via three 4k outputs and a powerful NVIDIA QUADRO RTX 6000 graphics card that can deliver approximately 30,000 Notch marks. The Qgen also comes with a two-year Notch playback license.
