Versatile CEO1950 venue in Taipei powers up with AJA

Making its debut in 2020, CEO1950 features a state-of-the-art pro AV system designed by Li-Trans to broadcast pristine audio and HD imagery throughout the venue, which includes a lush outdoor garden, spacious interior rooms and a gourmet French cuisine restaurant.

Central to AV operations is AJA’s Kumo 1616-12G router, which enables staff to route high bandwidth video signals over 12G-SDI to any monitor within the venue or to the central switcher during live streams or recordings.

Kevin Shi, CEO, Li-Trans, said: “Since opening, CEO1950 hosts an average of three to four events each week, requiring a reliable AV system capable of handling rigorous uptime demands. AJA products are known for stability, and they allow venue staff and operators to work with peace of mind and 100% trust that they won’t lapse or fail during live events, recordings or streams.”

AJA’s Kumo 1616-12G compact 12G-SDI router is at the heart of CEO1950’s workflow, used in tandem with a Kumo CP 1RU control panel for flexible operation and configuration. During events, Kumo 1616-12G receives all incoming HD SDI source signals and routes feeds to any of six Chimei HDMI display monitors, a Sony VPL-CH370 video projector, or an HD Sony switcher. Incoming source signals are shared from a Panasonic AW-HE40S HD pan/tilt camera capturing live content, dedicated cables that connect to the stage and other areas in the venue, and a desktop computer running video or graphics content.

Signals from the desktop computer and the stage reserved cable are scaled and converted from HDMI to SDI with AJA’s ROI-HDMI Mini-Converter, then distributed to Kumo 1616-12G. For outgoing Kumo 1616-12G signals, AJA’s Hi5 Mini-Converters are used to drive all venue HDMI monitors by converting incoming SDI signals to HDMI. The event workflow also includes an AJA 3G-AMA for embedding and disembedding mixed audio and sending audio feeds to Kumo 1616-12G for routing.

Shi concluded: “No matter the event or workflow demands, Kumo 1616-12G simplifies routing and allows CEO1950 to host world-class events. The team has been extremely satisfied with AJA’s product quality and reliability, as well as the workflow flexibility provided by Kumo.”
