Your easy video playback solution
MediaMaster Express is your perfect affordable partner to program and run your live video show for clubs, church, theater, corporate… All controlled from your keyboard, DMX or MIDI controller.
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.
Mix visuals and effects on up to 8 layers, compose them together with transparency and masking modes – or send each layer to a different output to create a large scale projection.
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.
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.
