“Showtime is Showtime” – a simple phrase used by Matt Finke, general manager and creative director of loop light GmbH, to sum up how they put on some of the most thrilling live shows for big brand names in Europe and make them go without a hitch. Relying on technology to deliver on the day, they recently added a further 10 Christie Pandoras Box Quad Server Systems, opting for the highest configuration of the latest Pandoras Box Sever, PK5 with 14.4TB SSD storage, sync/genlock option and 10GB network LAN.
The move doubles the number of servers loop light already has in its high-performance portfolio. “Productions are becoming more and more demanding. We want to offer our clients an unrestricted service when it comes to productivity and flexibility – really give them a complete toolkit with no compromises,” explained Finke. No stranger to the software and hardware – having worked for over ten years with Pandoras Box – Finke values the company as well as the product’s technical features, He sees the latest upgrade as “the logical continuation of the Pandoras Box Server systems and I’m convinced of the increased performance in the configuration we have opted for.”
This is a sentiment echoed by Christie’s Technical Sales Manager Mike Steinbrecher: “We have worked closely with loop light for many years and appreciate the trust they’ve placed in us. The combination of powerful hardware and software in Pandoras Box version six offers the performance level loop light wish people to enjoy,” says Mike Steinbrecher, Technical Sales Manager, Christie Pandoras Box.
Jan Walter, Business Development Manager, Christie EMEA, added: “We have put on some spectacular events in the past year, where we were able to give loop light the perfect support. One of the best examples is surely the world premiere of a renowned sports car manufacturer where loop light used our 4K projectors with 120 Hz, content delivery with Pandoras Box and ID Tracking using our Widget Designer and was able to demo what’s possible using today’s technology. The new hardware with their impressive features opens new creative opportunities.”
