New Products Found at LDI 2010 - Madrix 2.10

There were a number of new products to be found at LDI 2010. I will be blogging about some of those finds.

Madrix 2.10 Is Now Available


Madrix was showing off its LED lighting control software and its new version 2.10, the third update this year. The update is free for users of Madrix. New features include: MIDI Remote Editor - In Control. Free MIDI mapping has been a feature that users were asking for awhile now. With v2.10, users are now able to assign controls freely and individually for any MIDI console. The MIDI Remote Editor allows for the creation of simple as well as complex configurations to control the Madrix software remotely. At the same time, several new MIDI maps have been added to the selection of pre-defined MIDI maps. WASAPI - Soundastic. The Windows® Audio Session API has been implemented to enhance audio capturing and the Madrix audio analysis. The audio analysis has always been a significant feature of the software. From now on, it will perform even faster and more precisely under Windows® Vista and 7. SCE Video - Deinterlacing. Combining Madrix live effects with live video streaming is becoming increasingly important to users of the software. SCE Video has been updated to support capturing of interlaced sources as well as playback of interlaced video files. Madrix KEY DVI start has been added to the Madrix range of products. The range of DVI-based LED fixtures is quickly expanding. With this new product, 512 DVI pixels are provided for small installations (e.g. 32x16). Madrix KEY DVI now supports up to 307,200 DVI pixels (e.g. 640x480). Madrix KEY professional supports up to 786,432 DVI pixels (e.g. 1,024x768) and 32,768 DMX channels. Madrix KEY ultimate supports up to 1,310,720 DVI pixels (e.g. 1,280x1,024) and 131,072 DMX channels. The ColourSmart Link protocol for ColourSmart products was also added for all versions with DVI output.
