18 October 2010

Canada - CAST Software has announced that Coolux Media Systems is the newest and its 50th Registered wysiwyg Developer (RWD). CAST's RWD programme provides the conduit for technology manufacturers of automated, robotic and console hardware to connect through wysiwyg.

Coolux Media Systems, with locations in the USA, Germany and China is the producer of the award-winning Pandoras Box media and show control system, the solution for realtime video editing and image processing. Pandoras Box Media Servers and Players are a scalable network system with access to all common control protocols from within their Media Net platform.

Gilray Densham, president of CAST comments, "The mantra of both Coolux and CAST Software is to listen to our customers and then to develop / innovate solutions that work for them. Such was the case with wysiwyg R24's new CITP Protocol for Video which made it possible for consoles supporting this protocol to stream video content across a network into wysiwyg to be displayed on video screens or projected out of all video type light fixtures. It follows that CAST and Coolux working together makes particular sense given the current creative direction in the industry.

"We make it simple for accepted RWDs. A new RWD develops DLL in concert with CAST's RWD Kit, which CAST then tests (note, CAST does not develop code or have access to a manufacturer's code). Once acceptance tested, CAST adds the RWD to its website and provides guidance about how to use certain trade names and trademarks owned by CAST to promote the RWD's hardware / technology. CAST even helps RWDs at tradeshows by providing Demo Version CDs and loaner dongles and sometimes onsite tech support.

Jan Hüwel, general manager of Coolux says, "It has always been our goal to interface with any technology out there and providing solutions that improve traditional workflows. By interfacing with wysiwyg Video Pre Programming and its visualization, it's brought to a new level, and accessible to everyone. Complex video projection or screen tracking scenarios can be visualized and approved before even getting built. And with BlackTrax available dynamic and interactive video applications it becomes even more appealing. I can't wait to get my hands on this new technology."
