Software Version 4.5 Final Release is online!

Postby Oliver Kilian » Tue Sep 29, 2009 3:56 pm

Dear all,

We are happy to announce that the final release of 4.5 is available.
We thank all of you for testing the public release candidate and giving us feedback.
In addition to the Release Candidate some more features have arrived:

Meshes (3d objects) are no longer restricted to 65.000 polygons
Updated Help Files
New Keyboard shortcuts (see help file for complete list)
Timeline autoscroll on/off
Numeric IDs for all effects
usb keypad extensions can be reconnected
Sequence tapper background gets red if sequence opacity is zero
Batch Encoder can encode MPEG2 larger than 1080p as .mxl files (see pricing information for update)

The download link (be sure to be logged in with your personal account settings):

With more than 50 new features included, Pandoras Box will be faster, easier to use and more powerful than ever. The streamlined new dark skin interface, multi playback preview, virtual sites as well as the built in batch encoder for Media Managers and Media Servers, clip based editing and Bezier curves massively improve the programming workflow.

Integrated MA net protocol, Thumbnail exchange via CITP with Chamsys lighting consoles or the Widget Designer and Midi Show control expand the possibilities of communicating within show control environments. The DMX Matrix video output can now be used in parallel to an ArtNet controlled LED wall while still driving the original video output.

The Auto- & Batch Encoding feature for Servers and Managers will guarantee fast, automated, high quality media encoding into MPEG2, if a file conversion is needed. Additional costs apply for updates, please see the pricing information and contact your local dealer.

Along with the software update, coolux announces a Dual DVI capture card. The newly designed input board supports digital DVI-D inputs up to a resolution of 1920x1080p on both ports. In combination with the coolux Media Server hardware, latency will be as low as 2.5 frames from card input to server output.


The software update will be free of charge - except for the new built-in encoder - for all version 4 owners as well as for all older Media Servers. Owners of Media Player version 3.x and owners of the Media Manager LT version 3.x will be charged an update fee. The Media Encoder option will also be charged with an update fee, due to a new encoder licence. Please get in touch with your local dealers for pricing details.

Best regards
The coolux team!
