disguise Unleashes vx 4+ Setting New Records For Content At Scale

Visual storytelling technology platform disguise unleashes a new era of infinitely scalable, immersive entertainment with the release of their new flagship media server: the vx 4+.

Purpose-built for the world’s largest and most technically demanding productions, installations and shows, the vx 4+ is designed to ensure maximum content quality and playback performance, enabling productions to push boundaries and captivate audiences like never before.

With the capability to handle twice the amount of video layers versus its predecessor, vx 4+ machine ramps up storage performance and significantly improves video throughout, with up to 100GbE in bandwidth for higher resolution live video.

Integral to the disguise modular ecosystem and working with VFC cards, rx render nodes and preconfigured network switch fabric, the vx4+ is designed for projects in need of a robust and scalable solution. The inclusion of two 100GbE network ports and 12G video capture as standard enables the vx4+ to be used for 4K xR compositing alongside a cluster of rx render nodes. Integrating of a new PCI-Express 4.0 motherboard, CPU, GPU and RAID storage, ensures powerful video playback and compositing performance.

Finally, the system is designed to be compatible with disguise’s forthcoming IP Video Format Conversion (VFC) cards. IP-VFC is a patented technology that enables users to change the video output signal from their disguise media server to a SMPTE 2110 video output.

Existing vx 4 owners can upgrade to the vx 4+ to future-proof their productions.
