The year-long End of the Road World Tour called for a robust media server, according to Danny. “The durability of the disguise hardware platform was an important consideration as once the tour starts, it doesn’t stop for a long time,” he says. “The schedule of the tour also creates a situation where there’s not a lot of time for troubleshooting. So it was important that we’d had a good experience with the gx 2 on previous tours.
“Since we’re moving through European, Asian and American markets we needed a hardware solution that could work across all voltages, frame rates and environments,” he adds. “Besides arenas and stadiums, we’ve also had outdoor festival shows for the European leg and, so far, the servers have dealt with the elements well.”
He notes that the benefit of using the disguise platform is the extensive disguise rental partner network around the world. “So if we did need to replace our servers we can rely on a worldwide network of certified rental partners to provide the same gx 2 model that we’re using on the tour,” Danny concludes.
