E2 Gen 2

Full show control in a single box

  • Increased 4K input capacity
  • Easy and reliable show setup and production
  • Flexible layer management system
  • Intuitive user interface

Raising the bar for screen management, the E2 presentation systems provide superior image quality, exceptional input and output density, great expandability and durability. Supporting native 4K input and output, it was the first screen management system to manage 4K projector blends with refresh rates up to 60Hz with full 4:4:4 color sampling and 12bit processing. A truly versatile system, it offers eight mixable PGM outputs and four scaled Aux Outputs for full show control within a single box. Multiple E2s can be linked together to process extremely large pixel canvases supporting the largest displays available.

Go 4K all the way

With up to 40 inputs and 18 outputs, the E2 Gen 2 processor provides full screen control. The E2 Gen 2 offers 16 4K inputs and 8 4K outputs enabling impressive pixel processing power with increased processing speed. Whether native or scaled inputs, single cable 4K60p, two connectors or four, this HDCP-compliant system manages it all. Thanks to its linkable chassis, it can easily expand beyond the capabilities of a single box without the need for additional external processing and matrix routing to distribute the signals.

Simple servicing and control

The E2 Gen 2 comes with a straightforward cross-platform user interface that provides touchscreen ergonomics. As the presets are stored on the chassis it enables easy control via third-party systems. Multiple users can control the system simultaneously, and the API allows third-party developers to create custom control programs and interfaces. The 4K Multiviewer and its comprehensive overview of any input and output in the system allows for full situational awareness while creating the most impressive experiences. Thanks to its modular design, users can simply add new input or output cards to support future signal interfaces.

Designed for life on the road

The rugged E2 Gen 2 features a steel chassis that’s able to withstand the challenging conditions of life on the road. What’s more, it offers screen control in a compact form factor of only four rack units, which makes it easy to ship and install. Thanks to its modularity and the improved dual redundant power supplies, the E2 Gen 2 is extremely reliable and easy to service in the field.

Layers, layers, layers

The E2 offers an extremely flexible layer management system. With up to 32 layers available in HD, the E2 Gen 2 can customize the layer configuration to meet the needs of your application. The layers can be configured to support a mixture of HD and 4K resolutions maximizing your system flexibility.
