PRG Mbox Studio
Posted on Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
PRG’s Mbox Studio, now available for purchase, is a software-only media server application. A compact version of the Mbox media server, this product can be installed and operated on Intel-based Apple Mac computers (Intel processor, OSX 10.6.7 and higher).
Mbox Studio, with fewer parameters and less complex operations, offers substantial functionality and versatility. It operates identically to the full Mbox in both movie playback, effects, and in transition functions. Designed primarily for playback of SD content, it can also handle HD content. It offers eight playback layers and a fully functional pixel mapping toolset. A free demo content library, available as a separate download, can be used as a starting point for content creation with Mbox Studio.
Mbox Studio Version 3.6 is the first public release of the Mbox Studio software. Users of Mbox Studio may also download Mbox Director, a graphical user interface (GUI) control application, at no charge. Director provides control of all aspects of Mbox Studio content and playback directly, eliminating the requirement for a lighting control console. Alternatively, a moving light console can be used to control Mbox Studio and fixture profiles exist for popular consoles.
