Top 5 reasons you should upgrade to the NEW Mbox v4 Software.
1. Mbox’s revised user interface provides new controls for patching, output setup, mix setup, and preferences. And the UI now supports independent windows for each output plus the setup window.
2. Mbox v4 increases the number of playback layers in each version of the software, increases the maximum content size and output size to allow for 4K playback and output, enhances the pixel mapping (more pixels and new sources), allows for up to 32 independently mastered outputs (Mbox Designer).
3. Synchronization between outputs and servers has been greatly improved, allowing for perfect playback sync across multiple outputs of multiple servers.
4. As with previous versions of Mbox, v4 continues to support the ability to perform single-layer crossfades on every layer.
5. The texture effects in Mbox v4 have been enhanced to allow for better control with up to five modifiers per effect.
Check out some of the new features:
NEW Patch tab has the ability to see what universe/address each component of the server is patched to, as well as the current value for each parameter.
NEW Outputs tab shows the ability to add outputs, arrange those outputs on the Global Surface, assign outputs to displays, and finally assign output masters to the outputs.
The Mixes tab can be arranged on the Global Surface similarly to outputs. Mixes are used to help position, crop, scale, and rotate content.
Within the Preferences tab, all of the server’s preferences can now be edited in the Mbox application itself (and in Mbox Remote). Those preferences can be compared between servers and easily copied from one to another.
Seen below are three independent outputs in window mode. Six layers are currently playing, one spread across the Global Surface and the other five assigned to Mixes.
The same three outputs and highlights have the ability to have independent control over color, brightness, contrast, keystone, and shuttering for each output.
NEW capability of the Mbox Remote application to monitor Mixes.
Revised Pixel Mapping interface in Mbox Remote. As in previous versions of Mbox, pixel mapping Contexts can use the Global Surface as their source.
The pixel mapping in Mbox Remote shows that Contexts can also use Layers as a source - instead of the Global Surface.
The pixel mapping in Mbox Remote shows that Contexts can also use Mixes as a source.
