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.

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.

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)

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.

On the support, we sometimes have to answer questions about the latency between the live input and output on computers running MediaMaster. We know this a concern for most users but actually, there’s no straight answer since the amount of latency you will get will depend on a lot of different hardware and software parameters and therefore will vary depending on your own setup.

At ArKaos, it’s now many years we’re developing software that drives LEDs in a way or another: our media server software MediaMaster and our VJ software GrandVJ are used every day to drive LED fixtures or LED walls, and of course we have the LED Mapper extension which, combined with MediaMaster, creates a very easy solution to map visuals on complex setups of DMX driven LED walls.

However there is still something that makes it too complicated and / or too expensive for anyone to display visuals on LED devices: setup…
