Designed to be fast and easy, MediaMaster Express is a unique solution for video control on the market. This intuitive software allows you to program and run full visual shows in just a few clicks, without the need of training and practicing!
Once you’re ready, go live and take control of your show using only a few channels on your lighting desk, notes on a MIDI controller or just your computer keyboard..
MediaMaster Express’ simple interface lets you apply the latest dynamic effects to your videos and easily program a whole show with visual presets and transitions.
Take total control of your media: position, scale, rotate, adjust transparency, alpha, colors, etc. MediaMaster supports all major media formats, multiple video inputs, and provides more than 60 effects with controllable parameters.
MediaMaster’s efficient media library management can store up to 60,000 visuals in more than 200 folders and lets you delete and move files at your convenience without having to re-stack a programmed show.
The new software version will boost rendering and performance of this powerful and flexible control system by 33% utilising the same hardware. This had been extensively tested on ArKaos’ professional media sever range, running Windows 10. This technology is in line with the latest existing 4K live event media servers and those coming to the market.
The philosophy behind all of ArKaos’ control solutions is to focus on making video surfaces, screens, etc., work just like moving lights. The goal is to empower lighting designers, programmers and operators through the use of DMX video software.To help them ensure the seamless integration of video and pixel lightsources with lighting fixtures in their visual designs via DMX control and without needing to utilize a separate video controller.
This opens up the revolutionary development of having the lighting consoles drive video sources, acting as a live event media server. Whatever the size and scale of the show – from the smallest and most intricate to the largest and most complex – the principle is the same. The person operating the lighting console can have the capacity to run all visual elements together with ArKaos AV media server software. The MediaMaster 5 upgrade is fixture based and introduces fixture personalities for the various video entities to the lighting console – just as if they were moving lights. There will no longer be a need to build special personalities for these video elements giving MediaMasterdmx video software even more flexibility than a visual control system.
MediaMaster includes the intuitive LED Mapper extension, ArKaos’ flexible software solution to drive LED panels.
The Mapping Editor lets you pick devices from an extensive library and place them interactively on the screen. While editing the mapping configuration, you can view the result of your configuration in real time as it is sent over ArtNet to your LCD panels (supports still pictures only).
Once happy with your mapping, you can save it to a file and import it into MediaMaster which will broadcast its output according to your specific configuration.
Even better, LED fixtures compatible with ArKaos’ Kling-Net protocol will connect and configure themselves automatically. No more complicated setup process, forget about the IP addresses!
MediaMaster now also has Multiple NDI outputs, as well as being fully integrated in the extensive NDI product ecosystem, cementing it as a versatile live performance software.
NDI® (or Network Device Interface) is a free protocol to send Video over IP. It is designed to allow the distribution of live professional video content over an existing IP infrastructure, freeing users from current hardware constraints. This means that NDI doesn’t just cut back on cost, but also drastically reduces deployment time.
This software uses the NDI™ library. NDI™ is a trademark of NewTek, Inc.
Mix visuals and effects on up to 12 layers, compose them together with transparency and masking modes - or send each layer to a different output to create a large scale projection.
MediaMaster Express has proven to be an ideal solution for small to medium sized video installations in various venues such as Theatres, Clubs, Bars, Shopping Centres, Advertising displays, Sports Stadiums, Shops and even Fitness clubs..
From a small DMX fader control to a full size lighting desk, with a MIDI controller or just your computer’s keyboard, MediaMaster’s flexible interface will let you setup the software the way it best fits your controller.From there, you can simply play / stop your videos or take control of every parameters.
