Luigi Sardi, Technical Director aboard the MSC Meraviglia Cruise Ship says, "The ArKaos software suite is great and has really answered all of our needs, from the initial setup to the daily operation. Specifically, the Video Mapper is handy, powerful, incredibly versatile and offers us unlimited possibilities for creativity. What has helped me the most is that it can be millimeter accurate when working with projectors."

"The Media Hub is the perfect mate for content-uploading and proficiently helps you to keep your contents well organized." vows Luigi.

He added, "Media Master is steady and stable, the control interface is very helpful and can show you miniatures of all your layers in one view. It never let you down... even during hard programming sessions!"

MSC Meraviglia Powered by ArKaos Pro Stadium Server

The ArKaos Pro product line of media servers are used all over the world by leading designers and rental companies. They exceed today's needs by giving lighting designers and operators rock-solid, professional control of their shows. The Stadium Server is a full-option media server, which runs Full HD video on up to six EDID managed outputs and includes two HD-SDI inputs and fast SSD drives. This powerful system has a fast recovery system by Acronis, which allows an extremely simple reset of the server from the boot menu.

MediaMaster Pro Has Powerful Add-Ons

The MediaMaster Pro software installed has 36 Layers and includes a number of powerful add-ons, including: MediaHub for network sharing; Video Mapper, which allows for easy mapping of video onto irregularly shaped surfaces; LEDMapper 3 with unicast to drive LED panels; Lyric Player, which allows for easy synchronization of text; and Kling-Net, the plug-and-play protocol for easy operation of LED devices.

Discover Kling-Net

Kling-Net streamlines the process of creating and matching profiles between the Media Server and each individual device and can be controlled with DMX, MIDI and timecode. Kling-Net’s auto configuration capabilities allow a large range of devices to be controlled by the same Media Server, thus avoiding the painful process of creating and matching profiles between the Media Server and each individual device.
