TMB and coolux Sign UK Distribution Agreement

TMB is pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive UK Distribution agreement with coolux GmbH. Under the agreement, TMB will offer technical support, training, sales and service for coolux's award-winning Pandoras Box media and show control systems in the UK market.

Pandoras Box systems are world-class creative tools favoured by videographers, architects, programmers, and scenic and lighting designers around the globe, allowing them to create the most complex of designs with ease.

Capable of playing back multiple layers of video in all common file formats up to 4k, these networkable systems can achieve seamless, blended projections as well as synchronous multi-screen displays—contiguous or not! As a real-time 3D compositor, Pandoras Box integrates with audio, moving scenery, lighting, and other show elements for spot-on synchronisation of a total sensory experience.

Professionals appreciate Pandoras Box's many features and attributes including: Powerful multi-layer control and ability to work with video formats of all kinds; timeline-based Media Manager featuring media editing and playback control in real time; custom graphical interfaces; full dome projection; Media Net platform; support for all major control protocols; and much more. In addition to full-featured servers, TMB will also be offering innovative Pandoras Box Playback Systems and coolux's extensive library of seamless, looping content.

Signing of the TMB distribution agreement coincides with coolux's release of Pandoras Box Software Version 4.6, with new features such as 3D server preview; dual HD-SDI / DVI inputs; curve and clip editor; and support for additional protocols such as MA-Net, CITP, and MSC.

Also, designers and programmers can now benefit from comprehensive training atTMB coolux collegeâ„¢, a two-day workshop providing hands-on, focused instruction on Pandoras Box hardware and software. This course presents general concepts for creating dazzling multi-media designs with Media Manager, Media Player, Widget Designer, and much more! Several upcoming sessions will be announced, or check for schedules.

“This agreement is an almost inevitable step forward for both companies,” says Colin Waters, TMB's CEO. “TMB has been active in the Media Server market for over ten years. At a time when so many entertainment market segments have been—and remain—diminished, it's gratifying to be working with the leading products at the forefront of this vital, growing segment. Pandoras Box is a powerful creative tool, offering many unique benefits, and coolux is a true innovative force. We look forward to great things working together.”

“Our award winning product range needs to be represented by highly skilled professionals, who can offer the best possible support to customers,” says Helmut Protte, coolux International Sales Director. “We are confident and glad to have found such a team of professionals with TMB. We believe strongly that the combined industry experience and expertise of our two companies will pave the way for a successful future.”
