ArKaos debuts GrandVJ

ArKaos has announced that its self-titled video-jockey software is being replaced with a new program, GrandVJ. Like its predecessor, GrandVJ is used to mix, trigger and manipulate video sources during live music performances, or at other events when live video sequences are needed. The program is based on its predecessor's piano keyboard layout, but implements a new Mixer mode, patterned after an eight-layer video mixer. This is said to improve sequential mixing and allow for more performance styles.

Mapping of MIDI controllers can be done under a new learning mode, or alternately by importing presets for specific controllers. Finally, the software's library has been updated with new effects and automated video genererators, and the underlying engine is multi-threaded and hardware-accelerated, with support for multiple screens. GrandVJ is expected to go on sale in the late second quarter of the year, but those who have registered ArKaos VJ 3.6 as of March 1st are eligible for a free upgrade.
