Pixera servers create multimedia exhibits at Peak Tram

New multimedia exhibits at one of Hong Kong’s top tourist attractions, the Peak Tram, are being powered by AV Stumpfl Pixera media servers.

As part of a full AV overhaul of the tram – which has been ferrying people to the island’s highest point since 1888 – multiple LED canvasses have been installed to deliver educational content and a bespoke experience to visitors as they travel through various multimedia ‘zones’. Whenever a tram arrives or departs, visitors are immersed in a ‘wraparound’ video experience with animations and striking visuals overlaid on to the surrounding environment.

Five Pixera one media servers, managed from a single director server, are being utilised to render hyper-realistic content with pixel-to-pixel accuracy. Two Pixera one Quad server systems deliver synchronised content across multiple LED canvases throughout the Go Wild zone, where visitors learn about the local flora and fauna.

The Pixera servers enable seamless and uncompressed playback across the mapped sections of each zone, with their control capabilities supporting third-party devices, allowing content to be triggered by the Peak Tram’s battery management system. The media server also interacts with the lighting, audio and building management systems to provide a full AV experience.

Jason Yeung, technical sales engineer at CosmoVision, which provided technical support for the project, said: “Pixera’s pre-visualisation tools enable designers, content producers and system integrators to pre-build everything before onsite set-up. Being able to preview and test the content prior to installation, to ensure that the performance matches expectations, saves valuable time and resources.”

Samy Cheung, assistant project manager at system integrator ASCL: “During the LED wall installation process, CosmoVision installed temporary control buttons to run pattern and colour tests on the LED wall easily and efficiently. After the installation, the UI was updated to accommodate the operator’s daily usage, providing a more flexible and convenient control system.”
