In 2009, Martin introduced Maxedia Broadcast on i7 hardware along with the new Maxedia 4 engine, delivering stunning performance and allowing up to 8 simultaneous video playbacks in Full High Definition resolution. This latest software update includes over 40 new features from ultra-low latency video input engine performance to a new user interface with enhanced controls. The new software offers features and an ease of use that no other media server can provide.
A series of enhanced controls has been implemented to accelerate workflow and give Maxedia a better feel. The new user interface includes a new color scheme to facilitate long programming hours in the darkness, yet will still be familiar to Maxedia users.
Maxedia 4.2 is fully optimized to work with the new ultra-fast MCC Maxedia Capture Card. It also allows 20 layers with Maxedia Compact RM.
Main updates include:
With the release of the new ultra-fast MCC Maxedia Capture Card, Maxedia 4.2 software comes with a revised video input engine. With a choice of Dual HD-SDI and Dual DVI/VGA capture cards, Maxedia is ideal for high definition broadcast situations.
Maxedia 4.2 includes a comprehensive set of tools for easy use with PufferFish – Puffersphere.
Maxedia 4.2 features a uniquely designed and easy-to-use warping screen tool. Warping is even supported on Matrox TrippleHead2Go to control each section independently.
The programming section has received several new controls including control of video playback with a scrub bar, allowing users to jump anywhere in the video, as well as insert start, in/out points. Additionally, each layer now has a new set of color controls for very detailed changes.
Per layer framing tool
Framing on each layer is possible for a wide range of montage options. Direct access to parameters is also now possible.
No less than 12 new and useful shader-effects have been added that can be applied to any layer/plug-in.
