ORLANDO, Fla – August 13, 2011 – The 2011 International DJ Exposition in Atlantic City was a great success this year. Mobile DJ's from around the globe were in attendance to catch a glimpse of the latest and greatest technologies emerging in their industry. One of the latest developments that had people talking, was the new Essential Media plugin for Virtual DJ, created by Text to Screen software giant Pangolin SMS.
The new plugin for Virtual DJ allows users to play SWF, FLV, F4V, WMV, AVI, ASF, CDG, MOV, MP4, M4V, MKV, VOB, TS, OGV, 3GP, and DIVX files through the Virtual DJ software. No other plugin on the market allows Virtual DJ users to play back movie files as smoothly or accurately as Essential Media. In addition, the plugin allows users to overlay live video feeds on top of movies, music videos, or scrolling logos to further enhance the content for people in the audience. Some advantages of EM are:
• Full support for SWF, FLV, and AVI alpha channel. CDG files are converted to alpha channel on the fly.
• Smooth and accurate playback
• Never pauses the display for any reason
• Up to 48 movies or SWFs are available for immediate selection
• Sequential, Random, or manual playback
The Essential Media plugin from Pangolin really got people talking after they saw the 2011 PROMO Only party on August 9th, which had special guest appearances by DJ Roonie G, Jeremih, Lloyd Banks, and 50 Cent. The House of Blues DJ production crew displayed live video feeds overlaid on top of the PROMO Only and Chauvet logos.
Justin Perry, Director of Marketing at Pangolin was quoted saying “The PROMO Only party was great this year, and we at Pangolin were glad to be a part of it. We are honored that the DJ crews from around the world are looking at our Essential Media plugin to enhance their productions and events. This is a great tool for DJ's using the Virtual DJ software.”
