MEDIALON extends its Embedded Controller series

After MEDIALON’s successful release early this year of SHOWMASTER ST, its first all in one embedded show controller, the leading show and media control company now extends its series by releasing SHOWMASTER Pro and SHOWMASTER iPro.

“Both of these products have been designed to help creative people to achieve compelling entertainment and edutainment experiences with powerful and easy-to-use solutionsâ€?, says Alex Carru, CEO of Medialon.

The embedded controller series brings the advantage of an all in one controller with all relevant hardware interfaces such as DMX, MIDI, Serial, Time-code, digital IOs and of course TCP/IP.

Medialon’s SHOWMASTER series share Showmaster Editor Software included at no additional cost with each product. Thanks to the easy graphical programming environment, applications are programmed in much less time than with any other conventional control system. No coding or compilation is required. The native synchronization capabilities and its legendary Timeline with drag and drop programming makes it the ideal choice for Show Control Applications. Complex logical task programming is also available.

The embedded controllers can also be sized to customer’s exact needs by adding Medialon ioBox, the new port extension, or third party hardware interfaces.
