WorldStage was founded over 30 years ago to embrace industry challenges and lead in developing new technical solutions with creativity and ingenuity. As a result, WorldStage continues to innovate in developing and delivering technology and solutions that propel the events industry towards more immersive, authentic experiences. WorldStage’s technology and solutions can be found at a 20,000 attendee developers conference, a Fortune 500 product launch, a Tony-award winning Broadway musical, a wildly inventive media piece by a soon-to-be-famous artist or an extravagant benefit gala attended by stars of screen and stage.

Kohler added, “At WorldStage, we spend a lot of time testing the technology before we utilize it in our clients’ applications. For most of our clients, latency is unacceptable. I spent a week or two testing UBEX. Most of the time, I was pushing the system to its limits. It performed very well. It’s very different from many existing video over IP technologies. The system was able to perform in ways that other similar solutions would not do. I stressed the UBEX solution to ensure it wasn’t introducing any latency or causing any problems.

WorldStage provides audio, video and lighting technologies worldwide to the corporate, artistic and theatrical communities requiring unique and imaginative technical solutions for the live event spectacle, large meeting presentation, and permanent installation needs. WorldStage was selected for a large theater installation at a corporate campus in California.

With Lightware’s UBEX technology, video signals are handled fully uncompressed and transmitted over 20 Gbps. Using minimal, visually lossless compression, UBEX can simultaneously extend two Full 4K signals over two 10 Gbps fibers. UBEX can operate as a virtual matrix using a standard Ethernet switch as a crosspoint or as a conventional point-to-point extender.

Lightware is proud to power a global network of technologists who come together to create some of the most spectacular, emerging and innovative experiences worldwide. Still, their technology has been a trusted solution for powering mission-critical data for decades. Since 1998, Lightware has been developing matrix switchers, signal extenders and accessories for the professional AV market.

Lightware recognizes that integrators can’t have failures. Period. Lightware’s technology is built to power highresolution data through a purpose-built system, whether it’s a Hollywood production or a corporate campus. Lightware UBEX (Ultra Bandwidth Extender) is a versatile networked AV, or AV over IP, solution. The optical unit uses a packet-based transmission to allow 4K UHD@60Hz 4:4:4 signal extension.
