The Ai Infinity server, a record-breaker in the industry offering eight unique full HD DVI outputs, has also been upgraded to the Infinity EX. Like the S-Series, the Infinity EX now boasts third generation PCI Express motherboards and graphics cards providing unparalleled performance.

Alongside these features, the Infinity EX range has a wealth of further capabilities such as a front panel touch screen displaying the Ai Visualiser, internal EDIT management and dual preview and projection outputs.
