"Sensor Link reliably translates encoder data into information the Pandoras Box Widget Designer Pro can handle," says one judge.

coolux Sensor Link is the hardware element of a three-tier system, providing the interface for mechanical sensors, switches, and analog voltages to communicate with coolux Widget Designer Pro, which provides all the logic and elements to process the information. It then sends commands to Pandoras Box to do the media processing, compositing, motion, and rendering, completing a closed loop that enables the programmer to create almost any type of interaction, GUI, and control scenario, all with repeatable and accurate results.

"It takes the responsibility and workload off the designer to track scenic objects with video by opening communication between automation control and media servers, making mapping video to automated scenery as easy as a mouse click," notes another judge.
