AV Stumpfl’s Pixera media systems power immersive Mozart experience in Vienna
PKE Electronics chose Pixera media server systems for a new immersive experience focused on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Located in Vienna, the Mythos Mozart exhibition required a cutting-edge AV experience for five different rooms that offer access to Mozart’s classical portfolio and his legacy, including an AI-powered installation created by media artist Refik Andaol titled ‘Magic Flute – Mozart Forever’  

Before entering the rooms, visitors are equipped with a ticket that has a unique QR code; each visitor has their photo taken at the beginning, becoming a digital 3D portrait which can wink at the visitor and jump from one picture frame to another.

PKE Electronics took on the task of providing technical services and completing the install, providing 300 loudspeakers in ceiling and wall mounted configurations as well as on the ground. .

QSC provided the majority of the speakers, installing AC-S6T, AD-S8T, AD-S10T and AP-212SWs.

QSC CX-Q8K8 and CX-Q4K8 power amplifiers support the setup and receive signals via Qlan from two QSC Core 510i audio processors.

The Mythos Mozart show uses multiple audio sources via six Mac Minis with Qlab software, controlled via the general AV setup to start the right audio tracks at the right time.

Epson projectors are used throughout the space, specifying four EB-L635SU projectors, 21 EB-PU1007B projectors and 14 EB-PU2216B were installed, making PKE the first European company to specify the EB-PU2216B projectors for an installation project.

46 DPA microphones were also installed to make the room acoustics feel ethereal and church-like, with AV Stumpfl Pixera media systems employed as the main video playback system throughout the experience.

Eight Pixera two and three Pixera one servers were installed to handle the large amount of video content and data, supporting installations throughout the venue.

Martin Nikendei, project manager, PKE, commented: “We do ask a lot of the servers, since our content updates can be rather large. My team and myself like the general interface philosophy very much; it is an intuitive and very reliable system."
