Waves System Proxima 4020

The Waves System Proxima 4020 media server features the most intuitive video mapping software on the market. Connect to Proxima Composer from your remote desktop and easily produce a video projection with 2 video projectors and create an immersive experience for your audience with 8 audio channels*.

The Proxima 4020 & Composer software enables you to import videos, create masks and shaders, adjust your grid, create soft edges and broadcast your show on 2 HDMI outputs. Edge blending features enable seamless large-scale video projections using 2 projectors.

The soft-edge and sync frame functions offer exceptional rendering and the Proxima Composer also includes a 15×15 warping grid to conform the video to a 3D structure.

The NDI input allows the import of streams from other machines such as generative and interactive video engines. Combine sequences with perfect loops and fade transitions to ensure broadcast continuity. Activate sequences on events or along a timeline.

When integrated with other systems, the OSC API enables control of the media server via UDP protocol to wake-up, enter into standby or start new sequences. Compatible with MIDI / OSC / DMX / Art-Net.

The Proxima 4020 is ideal for creating large scale video mapping in theme parks, museums and retail spaces as well as feature walls in restaurants or engaging product launches.

The compact size enables Proxima 4020 to be located close to video projectors for reduced cabling / installation costs.

  • 2xWUXGA media server for professional applications in museums, retail & theme parks.
  • Synchro frame.
  • Embedded Soft edge and warping.
  • Control the media server from Crestron automaton or Control4 with OSC API.
  • Designed and manufactured in France by Waves System.

For larger projects, please see the Proxima 4040 - the ultimate media server for demanding installations with 4 or more streams. It can also be supplemented with optional cards such as a video acquisition card or an output card.

*8 Channel audio is a new feature currently being added to this model - please contact us for up to date availability.
