Martin Professional Maxedia 4.40 released
Posted on Thursday, January 6th, 2011
The latest software release for Martin’s Maxedia media server brings the Maxedia feature set to a higher level, says the company. Aligning simplicity of use with complexity of execution, Maxedia 4.40 shows how the most powerful media server on the market can also be a user-friendly one.
Similar to lighting consoles, Maxedia now features a cuelist for automation. From simple drag and drop of cues through an intuitive user interface, cuelists are quickly built and ready to play back.
Complementary to the cuelist is new timecode input. MIDI and SMPTE timecode can be used to synchronize one or multiple Maxedia systems together.
The Maxedia engine now supports up to 8 HD SDI inputs simultaneously. Using the newly added MCC capture card, latency is kept as low as two frames per second, turning Maxedia into a super powerful video switcher. In addition to the high speed capture, the video input can make use of frame blending for smooth 50/60 HZ conversion. A choice of Dual HD-SDI and Dual DVI MCC capture cards is available from Martin Professional.
Keystoning, edge-blending and 3D warping are now available on both engines, which makes each server really act like two servers. 3D warping in combination with keystoning and edge-blending can be done over six video projectors using a single Maxedia Broadcast and up to three projectors on a Maxedia PRO and Compact.
