ArKaos Releases MediaMaster V5.5

June 20, 2019 - Waterloo, Belgium

ArKaos has released the new MediaMaster 5.5 software upgrade. The new software version will boost rendering and performance of this powerful and flexible control system by 33% while utilising the same hardware. This had been extensively tested on ArKaos's professional server range, running Windows 10. This technology is in line with the latest existing 4K media servers, including those coming to the market.

Philosophy behind all ArKaos’ control solutions focus on making video surfaces, screen, etc., work just like moving lights. The goal is to empower lighting designers, programmers and operators and help make the integration of video and pixel lightsources seamless with lighting in their visual designs. All is controlled via DMX control and without needing to utilize a separate video controller.

This opens up the revolutionary use of the lighting console's to drive video sources. Whatever the size and scale of the show – from the smallest and most intricate to the largest and most complex – the principle is the same. The person operating the lighting console can have the capacity to run all visual elements together.

The MediaMaster 5 upgrade is fixture based and introduces fixture personalities for the various video entities to the lighting console – just as if they were moving lights. There will no longer be a need to build special personalities for these video elements giving MediaMaster an even more flexibility as a visual control system.
