Together with LightAct 4, we are also releasing a brand new server!

For some time now, we have been noticing that our Sync and Solo servers don’t offer enough expansion possibilities for projects requiring different inputs and outputs.

So around a year ago, we started working on a brand new media server. We had one goal in mind: to create a robust and rugged platform with the best possible performance aimed at live-events, XR and advanced fixed installations.

We call this media server reActor.

Let’s dive in a bit deeper.

A flexible and robust 4U server

We wanted to build a flexible, robust and reliable server. A server with rugged chassis, shock absorption for all internal components and robust connectors at the back.

We also included an LCD display at the front which, together with a back-lit logo, communicates the status of the server.

No one-size-fits-all

We know that every project is different. So we wanted to give you, our users, the power to design your own server configuration.

You don’t need audio inputs or outputs? Great, just remove audio input/output (AIO) module. You don’t need any video inputs? Remove video input/output (VIO) module as well.

You know what you need best. So configure your own server and we’ll build it for you.

Power of Multiple GPUs

With the development of graphic card technologies and the introduction of NVLink by nVidia it became possible to efficiently combine the power of multiple GPUs.

This means, you can add an additional main GPU to all LightAct base configurations.

Imagine the power.

Meet Iris

Meet Iris. LightAct's eyes.

Just as projects involving LightAct, keep on growing in scale, so do the tools need to become faster and the workflow more seamless. 

This was the main reason for developing Iris – LightAct’s new computer vision system that allows LightAct to understand the world around it.

It allows you to calibrate dozens of projectors in just a few moments, which is already a huge advantage when you need to calibrate several dozens of them in a short time span. 

On top of that, it also solves another problem. That of incorrect positioning of objects. Iris allows you to get a point cloud of your scene and you can use it, also in LightAct, to adjust the position of your virtual objects so that they are placed precisely where their physical twins are.

Iris is available now.
