Wings Platinum is the most advanced multidisplay production and presentation system on the market today and is acknowledged the world over for
its wide range of functions and high performance in presenting incredible shows. With its cutting edge functions Wings Platinum has been part of the
most spectacular shows, exciting installations and astonishing presentations around the world.
The conceptual strength of Wings Platinum lies in media integration. Anything that can be presented or controlled in some way, can be arranged, edited,
controlled and presented with Wings Platinum very smoothly. Our main objective in developing Wings Platinum was unbeatably simple and intuitive
operation – a benefit for all users in producing impressive shows.
The new Wings Platinum 3 comprises numerous new features largely focusing on simplicity of show production and live interactive applications.
The completely redesigned user interface welcomes the user with a dark and elegant desktop and comes with a new keyframe editor and a very
comfortable and powerful in-screen editing tool. The unobtrusive design allows the user to concentrate on visual contents, which becomes immediately
apparent when adding images or videos to the timeline.
Perfect Multidisplay presentations
through softedge projection
The huge, the whole, the impressive image: use any display,
such as plasmas, LCDs, LED walls, stationary or moving
projectors – even mixed - and turn them into one huge
stunning overall experience.
Multidisplay presentations with several networked computers
for projection of huge pictures and videos in realtime. For this
purpose Wings Platinum uses a presentation network with
one master and any number of presentation computers.
Wings Platinum - Media integration come true
Wings Platinum lets you arrange and edit any type of
media in a timeline on layers. Take standard high-resolution
images, HD-quality videos and multi-channel sound and
merge them quite simply in Wings Platinum into a unique
show of stunning quality. Due to an editing concept similar
to other video editing and compositing applications - such as
Adobe After Effects for example - producers will find it easy
to create shows in Wings Platinum without having to spend
too much time on training. Realtime Rendering gives you
the chance of immediate and last minute changes.
Pushing all limiTs WiTh Th
The intelligent multidisplay technology allows
to push at all traditional limits and boundaries
A file server automatically distributes the media to the
presentation computers. The softedge masks are created by
the graphics cards only during the presentation. This allows
adaptation of the masks to the local conditions and projectors
even shortly before a presentation. During presentation the
SmartSync-Engine TM ensures a frame-accurate playback
between all displays.
Complete Freedom in Show Design
Every kind of display technology can be used within one
show. Mix softedge projection with plasma displays – use the
displays horizontally or vertically or at any angle - change
the display devices and the output resolution at any time
without reprogramming or loosing the layout. All pixels of
all display are added to one fantastical total resolution.
The innovative warping concept allows individual adjustment
of the displays and of the entire presentation and ensures in
realtime that your presentation comes into its own on any
projection surface imaginable.
Create the presentation on the
production computer only
The computer used for show production constantly displays
the entire multidisplay screen even without the presentation
network being available. Therefore, a huge show can be
produced in the studio or on a notebook; the presentation
computers don‘t have to be connected. And a multidisplay
show can be presented at any time without multidisplay
hardware, e.g. on a single projector or plasma for a

Speaker Support technology allows clever design of your shows.
Wings Platinum features numerous Speaker Support
functions for a perfect combination between a superbly
composed show and the live comments of the presenter.
Using pause and start commands on the remote control,
the presenter can take his interventions into his own hands.
VGA and video signals can be imported in realtime and
incorporate in the show. The total of 8 live video channels
combined with alpha channel masks and croma/luma
keying allow for unlimited possibilities.
Full control over the event: ShowControl
A project for a multidisplay show, in addition to audiovisual
media, may also contain commands for complex peripheral
installations. Any number of show control channels
are available for switching and control functions, e.g.
DMX512, MIDI, 0-10V, RS232/485, switches, TCP/IP, UDP,
etc. Complex control commands can be programmed by
recording DMX commands, e.g. from light mixers, in data
objects in Wings Platinum, editing them and using them in
your show. Thus it is possible to record entire light shows
and play them in Wings Platinum. But what‘s more: You
can sync up Wings Platinum with external input devices,
e.g. external time code, via MIDI commands or DMX. But
you can also control your presentations via external signals
from motion detectors, sensors or even via keypads, the
SC TouchControl or mouse sensitive media objects.
Wings PlaTinum 3
Free running audio and video playback provide for some
music being played in the background or some background

objects ensure that the show is perfectly in sync with the live
act. And the presenter himself becomes a part of the show.

Create your show by placing media objects and control objects in the timeline. Media objects may be images, sounds, videos and texts. Control Objects may be light ramps, motion control,
color changes, remote control commands and many other things. During editing all media objects are time synchronized – by moving the locator in the timeline you can find out about
the exact point of time at a certain location. Editing of all these objects is based on a uniform concept and the editing steps are identical wherever possible. This is what makes using Wings
Platinum so incredibly easy. On the timeline layers, the different media are arranged as objects in the required order. Any editing is non-destructive, i.e. all media files on the hard disk
remain unchanged and editing steps can be undone or changed. There are certain layer types for different media, e.g. image, sound and video layers, the contents of which are output to
specific devices. An audio layer sends audio data to a selected channel of a sound card output. Or a video layer transfers data to a predefined image field on a screen.
No media need to be prepared for the Multidisplay show – all splitting, cropping and file distribution is done in realtime. The resolution of images is automatically adjusted when needed.
Every show has a minimum of one timeline
containing layers for arranging the media objects.
Several timelines are appropriate for interactive or multilanguage
shows. Show Control for permanent installations
or events requires several timelines for the arrangement of
complex projects. Jumping between timelines during a show
Increased productivity through
Wings Platinum features a toolbar known from
professional editing programs. In combination
with keyboard shortcuts, operation is very time-efficient
and effective. The option to arrange all windows and menus
on one multi-screen workplace allows you to keep track of
These layers allow crossfades of objects by
simply moving one object on top of another.
This technology provides for intuitive and fast show
programming. Crossfade tracks are available for image,
audio as well as video layers.
Audio files of various formats can be used together
in one project. One stereo audio track can be
directly allocated to one of the 12 stereo outputs or be
routed to all 24 outputs via the mixer. A peculiarity in this
context is timestretching and pitchshift technology which
allows adjustment of the playing time of audio files without
influencing the pitch. In addition to this, there are 16
realtime effect filters available via DirectX PlugIns. DirectX
PlugIns from other manufacturers can be incorporated at
Text layers accommodate text objects for use of
text in a show, e.g. titles or credits. All keyframe
effects are available for text objects, too. The text can also
be run in a ticker loop and the information be updated in
realtime via live import from external text files. This feature
can be used for information stations, for example.
Image, Video, Live Video Layers with Image Fields
Every screen has several image fields for
displaying images and videos. Each image field
can be assigned to image and video layers. If videos need
to be deskewed or if smaller images are always to be
displayed at the same location for a “picture-in-picture”
effect, additional screen fields can come in handy. This saves
time during production, because there is no need to place
new images and videos over and over again. Of course it is
possible to change the location of screen fields at any time
via keyframe animation. Live video is handled the same
way as images and videos.
4 Realize youR Vision
Wings Platinum offers full freedom in programming. It allows intuitive programming through In-Screen Editing, entry of exact values or live programming via external input values. Every
ramp can be individually designed and shaped with additional nodes. The Media Pool can be used for your own collection of ramps and curves. Dynamic visual effects, such as Zoom, Motion,
Rotation and Color control, allow camera movements, „picture-in-picture“ effects or spatial rotation and tilting of pictures. Alpha channels, usage of alpha masks and chroma/luma keying
allow creation of highly ingenious insert collages.
Non-destructive editing of images
Images at any resolution can be integrated into a Wings
Platinum show; embedded color profiles are considered.
During production, the system uses an editing resolution
to save resources. Only then are the images scaled to the
output format and sharpened accordingly. All this is done
without manipulating the original image files.
Marker layers can be used for placing markers
for various purposes, e.g. for pausing, jumping
Wings PlaTinum 3
to a certain chapter or timeline or for controlling external
devices, e.g. via the internal drivers.
All show control objects containing values
– DMX512, analog voltages, switches, etc. – are
placed onto this layer type. Universal layers can also be
used for note objects with text information and images to
be sent to an SC TouchControl unit serving as interactive
The Media Pool accommodates all media files for a
project, e.g. image, audio, video and text files. In
addition to this, other items of importance to your project,
such as screen configurations, timelines or devices and
trigger actions for Show Control, are also managed in the
Media Pool by means of the Project Explorer.
The Project Explorer helps you to organize all data
contained in the show – independent of the real
storage location on the hard disk or in the network. You
can create as many folders and subfolders as you like and
name them accordingly. These folders are created, shifted
and renamed, just like in the Windows Explorer. It is also
possible to organize control ramps and triggers, in addition
to the media files.
The screen is the virtual display area in Wings
Platinum - the entire area is used as preview
area during editing and for presentation if desired. For this
reason preview and presentation on the master are always
absolutely identical to the real presentation on multiple
displays. Screen size, resolution and format can be freely
defined and changed any time during editing without
loosing the chosen layout.
Intuitive Production with In-Screen Editing
Simply grab any image or video in the preview
screen and modify the keyframes for this object.
Keyframe control allows camera movement, “picture-inpicture”
effects, movements horizontally and vertically,
distortion, zooming, spatial rotation around all three axes
and color changes. Even a combination of all these functions
is possible, which can also be applied to all visual media
objects, i.e. even to video, text or live videos.
Timeline based show editing
All media and control objects are arranged on the tracks
in a timeline. During editing and playback they constantly
remain in sync. This applies also to any peripheral devices
that may be used. For some media, crossfade tracks are
available which allow for fades on one track by moving the
objects on top of each other.
Images at virtually any resolution can be integrated into a
Wings Platinum show. Wings Platinum produces images with
an appropriate editing resolution to allow for swift editing
at any time. After scaling the images, Wings Platinum
will optionally sharpen them to ensure optimum image
sharpness. Every dissolve ramp can be individually designed
and shaped with additional nodes. The Media Pool can be
used for your own collection of ramps/curves. Dynamic
visual effects, such as Zoom, Motion, Rotation and Color
control, allow camera movements, “picture-in-picture”
effects or spatial rotation and tilting of images. Combined
with alpha control, it gives you the chance to design the
most ingenious insert collages, which can even be controlled
Audio files of various formats can be used together in one
project. Conversion of sampling rate and sound depth or
decompression of MP3 files is performed online by Wings
Platinum during playback. Add creativity to your crossfades
by defining individual ramp shapes and saving them in the
Ramp Pool for further usage. Audio files can be exported
very flexibly in a variety of different formats.
Editing of videos is done in realtime, either based on
lower-resolution display data or the original video data.
The rendered output of apresentation media (AVI/MPEG
video, video DVD, etc.) is based on high-resolution original
data to achieve optimum quality. Frame-accurate cutting of
high-resolution videos up to HDTV is achieved by preview
technology. The size of original videos can be cropped for
use in a project. This allows you to cut out certain sections
of the image or cut off black edges. In order to ensure bestpossible
playback of interlaced material, Wings Platinum
contains a high-quality deinterlacing feature. Consistent
handling of MPEG 2 videos, i.e. editing in the timeline, as
well as presentation and writing onto CD using the codec
by MainConcept, recognized to be one of the best on the
Text objects can be used for titles in a show. The text is
displayed on a transparent background and can be
combined with all kinds of different backgrounds. Text can
be animated both horizontally and vertically. Virtually all
key-frame controlled effects, such as motion, rotation and
color control are available for text objects.
Drag and drop
Easy software operability has always been one of the top
priorities of the Stumpfl development team, resulting in a
few completely new features for version 3. Just imagine
looking at your latest pictures and videos in your favorite
browser and wondering how to turn them into a show. Well,
just open the screen in Wings Platinum, i.e. the virtual
projection screen, and drag the relevant images one after
the other from the image browser into the screen window.
Now take a look at the timeline and you will see that the
images are already available as a sequence of dissolves
which can be played back immediately.

The FeaTuRes in DeTail
On audio, image and video tracks, crossfades can be created
simply by moving two objects on top of each other. This is
not only a very quick way but saves tracks and allows a
better overview. Any number of tracks can be used, which
can be organized in group tracks.
Project management on several timelines
Complex projects can be structured by using several
timelines. This may be appropriate for interactive or multilanguage
shows. For permanent installations or live events
with Show Control requirements several timelines are
actually indispensable for the implementation of complex
Keyframe control of alpha, size, aspect
ratio, position, 3D rotation, color
All visual effects, such as motion, size, rotation in all three
axes and color can be controlled in realtime via keyframes.
Flying layers and PiP‘s can easily be realized. Via „In-Screen
Editing“ this can be done quickly and easily: your images
are edited directly in the screen. As an alternative you can
also use the Keyframe Editor, which allows very accurate
editing based on parameter objects. Keyframes can be
mofied live and recorded by linking it to external inputs
like DMX and MIDI.
Keyframe control via In-Screen editing
Animation of visual objects is possible directly on the screen.
You can edit the picture on the screen by grabbing and
moving it, thus causing motion, zoom or rotation, etc.
Keyframe control via timeline editing
Graphic editing allows very accurate control of objects based
on the displayed keyframe curve.

Interactivity for live shows
Realtime rendering and live interactive layers with flying PiPs
via DMX and MIDI remove the boundaries to interactivity
in live shows. Several timelines with the possibility of
jumping between them are appropriate for interactive or
multi-language shows. The mix group function can be used
for spontaneous and differentiated fades of parallel track
contents during playback. Mix groups can be formed from
one or several tracks and can be faded in or out or to a
certain transparency level during the presentation. The
optional Show Control license allows also external controllers
with faders to be used. Interactive control through variables
is also possible. Mouse Sensitive Media Objects in the screen
can be used for interactive info terminals or games. Via
SC TouchControl all functions of Wings Platinum can be
supervised comfortable from any place.
Wings Platinum can virtually play back the entire timeline
contents immediately in realtime at full quality. There is,
however, a certain limit when it comes to high-resolution
picture sequences and complex montages of videos and
images. If playback is no longer possible in realtime on
the available computer there is still the option of creating a
video mixdown with Wings Platinum.
Unlimited number of display
devices and pixel resolution
The number of displays within a presentation network
is unlimited, provided that a sufficient number of slave
computers is available.

on the other. This allows editing of your show without slave
Master computer can also be used
for supplying a display
A master computer can additionally perform the task
of a slave for supplying a display. This may be helpful
for low-budget installations and less complex shows. For
programming and adjustment of softedge masks, however,
it is advantageous to use a separate master.
Presentation of extremely complex
shows via mixdown video
For highly complex shows which can no longer be run in
realtime without any problems a mixdown video of the
visual contents can be prepared and added to the project
on a video track in Exclusive Mode. For the presentation
in full screen mode the mixdown video will be used but
the objects in the timeline will continue to be available for
Warping for projection on curved,
uneven or off-angle screens
The Warp function allows the entire screen contents
or individual multidisplay areas to be warped so as to
geometrically adjust the projected image to curved or
uneven projection areas. Also distortions produced by
projection lenses, which have a double effect on the overlap
areas can be compensated for. Warping is possible on two
separate levels for screen and displays, with a combination
of both also being possible. For Display Warp you can
choose between Uniform Warp and Individual Warp for
every individual display.
Multiple simultaneous live video inputs
Wings Platinum allows integration of up to eight live video
sources into a show. Usage of suitable computers and
corresponding video input cards will reduce the delay to a
minimum. Live video objects can be animated by all the
available keyframe-controlled effects.
Live interacive layers and layer groups
The mix group function can be used for spontaneous
and differentiated fades of parallel track contents during
playback – these can be pictures, video or sound. Mix
groups can be formed from one or several tracks and can
be faded in or out or to a certain transparency level during
the presentation. Control of mix groups is via triggers and
keys linked up. The optional Show Control license allows
also external controllers with faders to be used. Interactive
control through variables is also possible.
Subtractive coloring via keyframes
The keyframe function for color changes is a useful tool for
coloring text, images or videos. Since it is a dynamic effect,
the color can be changed continuously, e.g. a picture with
a bluish early morning atmosphere can be turned into a
picture with normal colors within seconds.
Video and live video input masking
Videos can be masked and be made partially transparent.
For this purpose, an alpha channel from an image file is
assigned to the video.
Chroma-/Luma-Keying for video and live video
Chroma keying allows certain colors in a video to be displayed
transparent. For a picture showing people and objects
against a monochrome background this color range can be
defined as transparent, thus allowing people and objects to
be shown independently and a different background to be
used instead. In place of color, brightness (luma), too can be
used for transparency control. This works also for imported
live video sources.
All image, video and audio file formats
Wings Platinum supports all common pixel-oriented image
formats. A color depth of up to 24 bits, for TIF files one up
to 48 bits is accepted.
Supported video codecs
All AVI codecs and WMV (Windows Media Video) are
supported, provided they are installed in the operating
system. AVI is a sort of container for videos created by
means of any sort of codec, e.g. Intel Indeo, DivX or DV.
For output of video in WMV format there is a particularly
Full alpha channel support
Some picture areas are displayed transparent in accordance
with the alpha channel. Since an alpha channel offers up
to 255 tonal values, it also allows progressive or partial
transparency. This is a very useful tool for displaying texts,
changing the transparency of picture elements and masking.
Image formats that allow alpha channel interpretation are
Photoshop, TIF, PNG or TGA.
Color-true display through evaluation
of integrated ICC color profiles
Color-true representation of images through evaluation
of the embedded ICC color profiles. An ICC color profile
deviating from sRGB contained in a JPEG or TIFF file is
considered for display ensuring correct color rendering. The
original files remain unchanged.
Import of picture sequences
By importing picture sequences it is possible to use, for
instance, slow motion recordings or 3D animations for a
show. Any resolution is possible as they are displayed as
videos based on low-resolution display data for editing. Full
quality can be achieved through output as a video. e.g. in
MPEG 2 or WMV format.
For multidisplay, picture sequences can be converted into a
(background) video of any resolution via split rendering.
This function causes a certain „Mickey Mouse“ effect when
compressing audio objects, as the pitch changes as well. On
the other hand, stretching causes the sound to be lower. This
function can be used for sound effects or if the music needs
to be adjusted in pitch to match other material.
This function allows extension and compression of audio
objects without altering the pitch; there is no „Mickey
Mouse“ effect. This is a useful tool for adjusting music,
comments and sounds in length to match them up with
video scenes and picture sequences.
The FeaTuRes in DeTail
When Loop Playback is enabled for an audio object you may
extend it as desired; the contents of the audio file will be
repeated again and again. With an additional asynchronous
audio track playback continues even if the Locator stops a
pause marker. This way some music or other sounds can be
continued in Speaker Support Mode while the presenter is
24 channel audio mixing
Via a multi-channel sound card or interface up to 24 audio
channels can be played back, thus allowing surround sound,
multi-language shows or extensive sound installations.
HD audio up to 24 Bit / 96 kHz
Audio formats with up to 24 bits and a sampling rate of 96
kHz are supported. Internally, Wings Platinum even uses „32
bit float“ format, which continuously offers optimum quality
and prevents losses even in cases of overdrive problems,
e.g. with incorrect PlugIns for sound effects are used.
Interface for Realtime DirectX Audio PlugIns
The DirectX interface allows integration of PlugIns for sound
effects. In addition to the Stumpfl PlugIns also DirectX
PlugIns by other producers can be used.

The same applies to keyframe control. In addition to this,
the text can be aligned horizontally or vertically, e.g. for
displaying the credits or a ticker.
Text objects can be used for news tickers with stationary
text or text running in a loop. As an option, text can also
be added as live import from a text file. When the file is

presentation, i.e. every slave computer only needs to play
Rendering as MPEG-2, WMV, AVI, DVD
An entire show can be output as video file at any size and
in various formats. These videos can be passed on to other
people or created when a show is extremely complex and
can no longer be run in realtime from the timeline. For
video creation all the AVI codecs installed in Windows, as
well as the WMV and the supplied MainConcept MPEG-2
codec can be used.
Wings Platinum includes the high-quality MainConcept MPEG
2 codec, which is one on the market. It supports picture size
of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels and data rates of up to 80
Mbits/s. Various presets facilitate standard-conforming

Show Control Basic-Functions
Even without a Show Control license you can program and
output up to 32 channels (switches, DMX512, 0 - 10 Volt
or servo motors). One of these 32 channels may even be
a serial channel (RS 232). Output is via the corresponding
hardware, which needs to be integrated into Wings Platinum
via the device ports in the Media Pool.
Full Show Control Capability
The Show Control license offers Wings Platinum
programming and output of a nearly unlimited number
of Show Control channels (switches, DMX512, 0 - 10 V,
servo motors or RS232 commands) and the full support of
the SC Net system. Output is via SC Net Modules or other
hardware (DMX, MIDI, RS232 ports, etc,), which needs to
be integrated into Wings Platinum via the device ports in
the Media Pool.
Remote Control via RS232 and TCP/UDP
Various functions of Wings Platinum can be remotely
controlled and it supports a variety of different input devices:
our SC Master Show Controllers or the SC TouchControl
System, a universal media control system, MIDI or DAW
controllers, such as Tascam US242/428, Mackie Control or
Behringer BCF2000, DMX control units, PC hardware, such
as keyboard or joystick, and, finally, any other controllers
which can output programmable, serial commands.
Controller Inputs for Recording and
Live Control of Media Objects
Wings Platinum allows usage of external controllers for live
control of various control channels. Alternatively, the control
data can also be recorded in data objects. Live intervention
in programmed sequences is also possible. For this purpose,
controllers with touch-sensitive motorized faders are
Extensive trigger functions
Triggers allow various functions to be executed in a
number of different ways. These are trigger actions for
playback control (Play, Pause, Stop, Locate, Jumping across
timelines), extended control functions (Restart for Wings
Platinum and/or PC, Autostart, Scheduler, network functions
for multidisplay setups.
Different ways of executing triggers
The trigger actions are as manifold as the ways of executing
a trigger: via a mouse-click in the preview window, a PC key,
via markers in the timeline, RS232/TCP/UDP command,
DMX, MIDI, time-controlled via the Scheduler or via a touch
screen containing screen objects.
Control Panel for timeline-independent operation
The Control Panel can be used for direct and timelineindependent
operation of devices and for direct execution
of trigger actions. Moreover, it also allows control of all sorts
of devices via serial driver commands. The Control Panel
offers status displays for control channels, switching states,
incoming timecode and variables. The Override function
makes it highly suitable for live applications which require
direct intervention in programmed sequences. The Control
Panel can also be individually designed.
Recording, Editing and Playback
of DMX512 Light Shows
If you prefer programming light or show effects on the
DMX console you are familiar with you can later record the
control information of up to 512 channels in Wings Platinum
and execute the corresponding commands in sync with the
show. This means that no additional hardware is required
for an installation. Suitable interfaces for recording are the
SC Master 16 or the SoundLight USBDMX-IN.
