coolux International will be a key participant at LDI 2008, Oct. 20-26 in Las Vegas, serving as a corporate sponsor for Live Designâ„¢ Projection Master Classes. In addition, coolux will provide a full day of training on its award-winning Pandoras Boxâ„¢ real-time compositing media server, a high-performance link between projection and digital image compositing that perfectly unites state-of-the-art rendering technology with intuitive media control.
“coolux and its products are dedicated to providing the industry with maximum flexibility in creating exceptional design concepts and stunning visual spectacles. Our extensive participation in LDI 2008 reflects our continued commitment to education and innovation in the realm of live entertainment technology,” said Steve Gilbard, president of coolux International. “Projection technology is among the most exciting areas of live design today, and we anticipate that the LDI show will once again be a huge hit with lighting and effects professionals.”
Presented by Live Design, the official publication of LDI, the three Projection Master Class sessions sponsored by coolux will explore the present and future of projection design and technology. Classes are scheduled for Oct. 21, 22, and 23 and target lighting and projection designers interested in the aesthetic and technical possibilities of today's immersive world of imagery. The first two series of Projection Master Classes, held at LDI in 2006 and 2007, attracted a standing-room-only crowd.
Pandoras Box v3.5 from coolux also garnered significant attention at LDI 2007, earning an award for best debuting product. Since then, Pandoras Box has continued to be adopted around the world. The system has played an integral role in major awards shows, productions by leading TV networks; live corporate events and high-profile trade shows, and gallery and museum installations, as well as theater, opera, and musicals as a single, cost-effective tool for merging digital lighting video displays and video projection into virtually any surface. At this year's LDI show, coolux will showcase new and enhanced features for Pandoras Box v4.1, including the latest Pandoras Box Warp Engine, video processing capability with field and frame blending, and new HD and SD deinterlacing options on the ultra-low-latency HD/SD-SDI input cards.
At LDI 2008 coolux also will host a full day of hands-on training by several coolux certified trainers, who will demonstrate how Pandoras Box and its powerful render engine enables real-time 3-D compositing and projection of images on any shape, and to any surface. They will work with attendees in arranging video and images freely; changing the color, form, and position of images; synchronizing audio data; and animating 3-D objects such as logos and products. The class, scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 21, is limited to 26 attendees.
