disguise gx 3 takes video playback servers up a Notch

Date:

disguise has launched a video playback server that allows creatives to break new ground with Notch graphics – the standard for generative content in live entertainment.

The gx 3 provides a single-box solution for small to medium-scale extended-reality productions looking to run high-level immersive visual experiences. Its NVIDIA A6000 processing unit is capable of generating more than 53,000 Notchmarks, which is claimed to be the most by a media server. This additional processing power enables users to unlock new potential in generative content, such as facial tracking, simulation and buffer effects, or AI background removal for IMAG.

The gx 3 includes a two-year Notch licence as standard and owners will also have access to two Notch blocks designed exclusively to test out on the new machine. disguise has improved the video playback and 4K XR compositing performance compared with the gx 2c model with the inclusion of next-generation components including a new PCIe 4.0 motherboard, latest-gen CPU and increased storage capabilities. 

The machine features three 12G inputs for 4K video and three 4K VFC card outputs, offering more video throughput while preparing for the future requirements of live shows. It also includes two 100GbE network ports as standard. 

Raed Al Tikriti, chief product officer at disguise, said: “As the demand for complex generative video content grew, we saw that there was an increased need for media servers that could reliably support real-time graphics at low levels of latency. The gx 3 will enhance and support productions across any application, from live events to location-based experiences to XR.”

Companies such as Fuse, Solotech, Colonel Tom Touring, VideoDesign, Lang UK, QED, MooTV, ArkVentures and TOEI are among the early adopters of the device. Creative agency All Of It Now used the gx 3 to power Mötley Crüe’s US stadium tour this summer.
