Recently released with a host of updates, Martin Professional’s Maxedia Digital Media Composer is enjoying a season on a number of top tours, special events and television productions, just after coming off a Eurovision 2006 show in which 20 Maxedias were networked for one of Europe’s top television events.

Kelly Clarkson, Sting, Reba McEntire, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ozzfest 2006, American Idols Live!, Ricky Martin, New Cars, Moody Blues, George Strait, Poison/Cinderella, Gianna Nannini, and Hilary Duff are just a few of the top names using Maxedia manipulated effects on their 2006 tours.

Several special events and television studios are also benefiting from the digital media server’s ease of use including VH1 Rock Honors, JC Penny Jam, VH1 Decades, KODO, GLEC Worldwide, and the PokerDome Series, as well as various TV shows such as NBC's top game show, Deal or No Deal, and even permanent installations like Australia’s Yaralla Sports Club.

Some of the above use Maxedia’s new pixelmapping feature to drive large LED systems or in some cases to generate color effects for complete moving light systems. Maxedia, which has integrated DMX control, includes an extremely user friendly and intuitive graphical user interface that saves programming time and promotes user creativity. It offers several other advantages as well such as running up to 20 layers simultaneously while using as little as 24 DMX channels. It also offers 3D effects with unique real-time manipulation features.
