Brussels – ArKaos PRO will exhibit at PLASA 2014 in conjunction with its exclusive UK distributor, White Light. There they will demonstrate the new MediaMaster 4.1 the latest, ever-more powerful version of ArKaos PRO’s media server software. A plethora of new features includes new aspect ratio and cropping tools, new hue, saturation and lightness tools, layer-based volume control and a redesigned interface.

MediaMaster 4.1 brings more flexible protection via an optional dongle and many additional features, yet retains the simplicity of operation familiar to its users. It is no longer restricted to use on only one machine. A completely redesigned licensing system allows the user to register and deregister any machine remotely from their own account.

Also making its PLASA debut is LEDMaster, the new all-in-one solution delivering LEDshow control in three easy steps: just map, programme and playback. Designed to work in conjunction with ArKaos PRO’s Kling-Net protocol, LEDMaster automatically recognises and configures any Kling-Net LED device to make it ready for mapping. Through Kling-Net, the device’s resolution and pixel format is sent to the LEDMaster which is then able to read and change parameters.

Scenes can be created by importing visuals from the user’s own library, or with the new innovative Live Pattern Generator. This new function creates hard-edged visuals based on video frames mapped by the user onto the LEDMaster’s display. The Timeline based function gives the choice of pre-programming or live running of the show. Scenes can be triggered live, automatically, random or sequentially, while the Easy Beat Detection feature ensures every look will be unique with no repetition throughout the show.

LEDMaster brings sophisticated LED control within reach of everybody and is especially suited for retail and window display, clubs and small to medium sized theatres.

Finally, ArKaos PRO’s complete range of media servers will be exhibited side by side giving visitors the opportunity to choose for themselves which suits their purposes best. Comprising the Stage, Studio and Stadium servers, this acclaimed range offers up to two-, four- and six-outputs respectively with features and controllability that meet any challenge or project requirement.

To see these products in action, visit the ArKaos PRO stand (Stand F50, White Light Zone) at PLASA (5-8 Oct, 2014) at London’s ExCel centre.
