After GrandVJ, we’ve now added support for Syphon as client and server in MediaMaster also. It’s been around since only a few weeks and has already proved to be a great addition to our software, we’ve received a lot of feedback from users like Koen de Puysseleir – creative director for Tiësto – telling us how much this new feature broadens the boundaries from their creativity.. And God, we love that! In this article we’ll explain a little bit more how you can use Syphon in combination with MediaMaster and GrandVJ, then we’ll give you some inspiration from those who have already started using it..

We’re now offering multiple Blackmagic Design SDI input cards as an option in the A10 media server. Below is a little video presenting this setup, read more for the details. We have the following setup for the video above: One standard A10 media server One custom A10 media server with:   2 x Blackmagic Design DeckLink Duo™ 1 x ATI six output Card Our standard A10 media server outputs in DVI to a Folsom Image Pro that converts the DVI signal to an SDI 720p 60 Hz signal, and this three times. Then we capture these three SDI outputs from the Folsom Image Pro with the two DeckLink Duo™ cards in our custom A10 media server. The connections on the DeckLink Duo™ cards are represented on diagram below:

MediaMaster Pro 2.2 makes it possible to warp the output per screen and adapt the soft edge on each side of an output, the video below will demonstrate this with a simple setup made with two beamers projecting visuals from an A10 Media Server on a curved screen. But of course it can handle much more complex setups depending on your graphics card. The settings can be modified in the “Geometric Correction” dialog which can be accessed via the “Geometric Correction” button near the soft edge span dimensions on the video tab of the preferences dialog.

ArKaos MediaMaster now fully supports multi-screen output in Windows Vista & 7 for Multi-head graphics cards. This means you can connect several displays to one graphic card and MediaMaster will spread the output across those connected displays. To illustrate this, we’ve filmed the results of the tests we’ve done with a six-heads graphics card – the “ATI Radeon™ HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition” – installed in an A10 media server which we connected to a bunch of DVI screens.

Since version 1.2, ArKaos MediaMaster supports Apple’s Quartz-Composer technology. Depending on its configuration, a Quartz composition can be either a Visual or an Effect in MediaMaster Pro. In this tutorial we will demonstrate how to add your own Quartz-Composer Effects in MediaMaster. Remark: Check out the article “How to: Create audio-reactive effects for GrandVJ using Quartz-Composer” for more details about the creation of Quartz-Composer effects. You will also find lots of resources and how-to’s for Quartz Composer on the web or in the Reference Library from the Mac Dev Center.

ArKaos, like every other company, has defined its own culture during his evolution. We had the chance to start creating real time video software very early, which gave us the advantage to collect a large user base. Because we were amongst the first on the market we also saw the new generation coming and thus had the opportunity to help by providing it the needed tools. Basically, we understood that computers were replacing expansive hardware video players and that with so much more flexibility. We’ve also been very careful with pricing when releasing new software. Although ArKaos VJ had perfectly integrated DMX it was first built to be synchronized with MIDI and it’s original price of around 300$ was adapted to the music business.

This year at the Frankfurt Prolight+Sound show we demonstrated a new way of using MediaMaster through a new “Simple Mode” interface inspired from the features that made ArKaos VJ DMX a success. Recently we wrote an article on this blog to explain the direction we were taking about the development of MediaMaster 2.0 and how we will be releasing it under two different license levels: MediaMaster Express and MediaMaster Pro (read further below) And today we release the first public beta version of MediaMaster 2.0, you can download if from here:www.arkaos.net/downloads While we finish the documentation, here’s a draft of the Release Note to give you some explanations: ArKaos_MediaMaster_2_0_Release_Note.pdf

  Here is a video showing MediaMaster 2.0 in Express version, it’s the developer’s beta that was demonstrated at the Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt last month but it will give you a good idea of what it will look like. We were triggering video loops with an LSC DMX desk and with a small Korg Nano MIDI controller.

If NAMM 2010 had nothing new for the control and integration of music and video it looks like innovation was in Frankfurt, at the MusikMesse. Yes, the old continent brings a new and very innovative controller to the market: the Karlax. And one of you lucky guys will be one of the first to perform with it! (More info at the end of this post).
