Blue-i Group, the acclaimed European production service provider for spectacular events and theatrical productions, recently invested in five AV Stumpfl PIXERA four RS media servers.

Blue-i Group, known for their work on live events and theatrical productions like Disney’s' “Aladdin - El Musical” in Madrid, “Tina Turner - das Musical” in Stuttgart and the “Les Misérables European tour”, have recently invested in five PIXERA four RS media servers. The investment follows a long-term growth strategy, that included last year’s opening of a new office and warehouse facility in Belgium to enable the Blue-i Group to expand their services in mainland Europe. 
PIXERA four RS servers are powerful and versatile media server hardware systems, perfect for live events, highly demanding real-time graphics applications and broadcast setups. 

Blue-i Europe is investing in cutting-edge display and playback technologies to provide clients with the most robust and visually impressive productions.  
Ethan Forde, Blue-i Group’s European sales director, comments on the reasons for the recent investment: “Our whole team is excited to begin our journey with AV Stumpfl’s PIXERA system. We chose the powerful RS servers to give us the maximum performance, which we know our clients will want to fully utilise on their projects.  We're seeing more demand for high bandwidth networking, real time rendering and high bit-depth colour. We needed a server that could deliver this along with a feature set that will deliver for years to come.” 
12G-SDI I/O support, a 10 GB/s default data read rate and a 25GbE Dual network card are some of the key system features of AV Stumpfl’s high end server for 4K and 8K playback. 

PIXERA’s executive director Harry Gladow underlines the strategic importance of Blue-i Group’s decision to include the PIXERA media server platform in their product portfolio: Blue-i has such a stellar reputation when it comes to delivering high-end productions, that many international AV professionals will take note. PIXERA is not just a great choice for fixed installations and virtual production setups, it has a lot to offer to theatrical productions and the live event world in general.” 

European Sales Director, Ethan Forde adds, “Our clients give very positive feedback about the feature set and interface. We've also been blown away by the exceptional support.”
