coolux Media Systems introduced the new major release of Pandoras Box Software 4.5. With more than 50 new features included, Pandoras Box will be faster, easier to use and more powerful than ever. The streamlined new dark skin interface, multi playback preview, virtual sites as well as the built in batch encoder for Media Managers and Media Servers, clip based editing and Bezier curves massively improve the programming workflow.
Integrated MA net protocol, Thumbnail exchange via CITP with Chamsys lighting consoles or the Widget Designer and Midi Show control expand the possibilities of communicating within show control environments. The DMX Matrix video output can now be used in parallel to an Art-Net controlled LED wall while still driving the original video output. The Auto- & Batch Encoding feature will guarantee fast, automated, high quality media encoding into MPEG2, if a file conversion is needed.
In addition to all the enhancements of the core software, new tools and new versions of the Widget Designer have arrived.
The Widget Designer Basic is a freeware program to create custom user interfaces. It features a new Event-Scheduler that executes pre-defined tasks at a given time on a given date. Automatic thumbnail exchange via CITP makes it easy to create a VJ-tool in a minute. The thumbnails can be set as backgrounds for buttons; complete folders of media can be represented by buttons in one keystroke.
New tools such as the Art-Net Monitor, a coolux VNC Remote and the new onscreen Menu software for the Media Servers will make life even easier. With the coolux VNC viewer all systems in a network will reveal themselves with their IP address.

The software update is for free except for Media Players version 3.x and Media Manager LT version 3.x. Furthermore, the new built-in encoder option will be charged due to a new encoder licence.
