New features contained in the Pandoras Box Version 5.7 software include Venue Sites, which are used for visualising complete stage, installation and show setups in real-time using 3D models.
Media content can be pre-programmed per output and can then be routed to different 3D models this way. With Venue Sites, instead of just offering a standard 3D mapping approach for pre-visualisation, one can now use a realtime compositing environment as a complete whole to simulate video projectors virtually using a light projection approach. Media content and content compositing can be used completely independently from the visualised 3D scenes.
The new version also includes a redesigned text editor. Different font styles can now be used within a single text asset, while an automatic horizontal and vertical scrolling capability is also part of this tool’s latest development. When working with the new text editor, one can use and add an unlimited amount of text to a continuous text input.
Meanwhile, the latest Pandoras Box audio feature development makes it possible to input ASIO sound as well as HD-SDI embedded audio. Users can route, delay and record ASIO inputs. Sound data can be used on ASIO tracks and programmed to the timeline, including different delays for different output signal chains. The Pandoras Box timeline now acts as an automated audio desk, or can alternatively be triggered via external commands.
coolux’ Hans Christian Stucken told Commercial Integrator Europe: “This new version contains a wealth of new features, some arising out of customer feedback. As ever, the development of our technology is a wonderfully organic process, and that continues with V5.7.”
