Pandoras Box 8.4.0

There is a new version available in the Download-Center: ... 0/file-390

Dear Customers,

please find Pandoras Box V8.4.0 ready to download.

The highlights of this version are the introduction of the Terra/SDVoE card which allows to connect to a virtually unlimited number of remote inputs to be used within Pandoras Box. It perfectly blends into any Terra or other SDVoE system. All modes like Genlock, Genlock Scaling, FastSwitch, Multiview and WallMode are supported.

Notch does now allow for live updates of loaded blocks in order to match the scene to your current (projection) setup. Adding and removing exposed values is directly reflected in the interface for easy access during setup times.

We have also introduced some neat little improvements like being able to set the client’s domain number via return key or the option to append CR / LF to any TCP device packet send from the timeline. Along with that, we have squished many bugs and imperfections to allow for a better workflow. MOV video playback has been improved and the GUI responsiveness on larger screens is noticeable better now.

Please find all features, fixes and changes highlighted in the changelog below.
