The Remote Player which will be of interest to those working on long term shows, permanent installations and in other fixed environment scenarios
Remote Player is a network-based player allowing the control of multiple servers from a single point on the network.
The internal encoder means Cue Lists can be allocated to separate applications.
Connect your Elgato Stream Deck to that maximises workflow and direct access to sources and outputs as needed.
MediaMaster Pro ships with the new Video Mapper Extension which allows easy mapping of video onto irregularly shaped surfaces and through multiple outputs.
Designed to let you setup mapping projects in very short times, it makes it incredibly simple to flow visuals around complex objects with just a few clicks.
The fixture profiles allows total control of every MediaMaster parameter straight from the DMX console and turns any powerful computer into a traditional Media Server for professional lighting consoles such as ChamSys, Avolites, LSC, ETC, GrandMA, Martin, Compulite, etc..
With now in MediaMaster 6 two new fixture profiles – Layer extended 2.0 and layer full 2.0 - that can each control up to 112 DMX parameters.
Philosophy behind all ArKaos’ control solutions focus on making video surfaces, screens, etc., work just like moving lights. The goal is to empower lighting designers, programmers and operators and help make the integration of video and pixel light sources seamless with lighting in their visual designs via DMX control and without needing to utilize a separate video controller.
The new software version will boost rendering and performance of this powerful and flexible control system by 50% utilising the same hardware. This had been extensively tested on ArKaos’s professional server range, running Windows 10. This technology is in line with the latest existing 4K media servers and those coming to the market.
MediaMaster 6 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 MediaMaster an even more flexibility as a visual control system.
MediaMaster is ahead of the game, and will happily play HDR or standard videos and make them compatible with HDR 10 and HLG hardware on the fly.
MediaMaster 6 include a specific mode for HDR LED screen, compatible with Novastar or Brompton LED processor.
Be now compliant with the most demanding picture quality.
Thanks to MediaMaster 6 HDR output processing.
MediaMaster 6 runs the streamlined proprietary ArKaos SAGA codec with 10-bit definition per colour and an Alpha Channel.
Other advantages of SAGA include lower disc usage than with a standard HAP codec, also boosting the speed, the ability to play clips backwards and accelerated CPU and GPU rendering.
There is no chroma re-sampling, and the resolution size is unlimited.
MediaMaster now also has Multiple NDI®5 inputs/outputs with alpha, as well as being fully integrated in the extensive NDI®5 product ecosystem, cementing it as a versatile live performance software.
NDI®5 (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®5 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.
MediaMaster currently includes the intuitive LED Mapper Extension, the flexible software solution from ArKaos to drive LED panels.
The Editor now works in the same time than MediaMaster. You can interactively preview your editing by sending the video output or the mapper static pattern to the network.
The LEDMapper supports unicast to reduce the load on the network and so allows to drive many LED fixtures. The interface displays the pool of devices detected on the network to make it easy to assign IP address for the fixtures.
