Video Media Control

MediaMaster is a software solution for professional control of real-time video and effects that has been specifically developed for desk operators and lighting designers.

It is also probably the most affordable media server software on the market thanks to its upgradable license system: start with MediaMaster Express for simple control of your show through DMX or MIDI and later when you need it, upgrade to MediaMaster Pro for the difference and get access to full fixture control mode and advanced compatibility with professional lighting desks.

But no matter what is your choice, there is no compromise on the quality. Both versions are built around ArKaos' latest generation of technology, embarking our multi-threaded graphics engine which delivers blistering performance by taking advantage of multi-core machines.

Improved frame blending support allows extremely smooth video playback even at slow speeds while software genlock makes it possible to play several HD movies at up to 60 fps without dropping a single frame.

Finally, a straightforward interface displaying all layer's parameters simultaneously, as well as all layers preview, gives lighting designers improved visibility of their shows and the best ergonomics possible, you can even generate a preview visual of your Soft Edge setup so you can't go wrong!
