ArKaos will be well represented at NAMM 2012 by appearances in no less than three locations: the American Audio, American DJ and Elation Lighting Booths.
American Audio staff will demonstrate the capabilities of ArKaos GrandVJ, the real time video mixer software, in a dedicated display area on the American Audio booth (#6330), using a Plasma screen, MAC computer and the new American Audio VMS2 MIDI controller. ArKaos engineers are currently working on a midi map for the VMS2, for which American DJ will make a special GrandVJ "skin". Visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to try out the GrandVJ for themselves and put their questions to knowledgeable and experienced operators.
A guaranteed highlight of the GrandVJ demos will be the performances from award-winning VJ, Grant Davis, who will give will give 4 shows per day using GrandVJ on the American Audio booth’s 9ft wide by 7ft high LED video wall.
Grant Davis is ranked among the top visual performers worldwide. Under the name VJ Culture, Grant has provided sight and sound for audiences around the world. ??During his shows, he will be using a Dev. version of the new ArKaos GrandVJ 1.6.1 which, amongst other things, will bring support for American Audio's VMS2 MIDI controller, offering a new way to scratch your video content using the two controller’s jog wheels.
The shows are scheduled for 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm, from Thursday Jan 19th through to Sunday Jan 22nd, with each demo lasting between 10-15 minutes. (American Audio Booth #6330)
"We are very excited to be representing ArKaos at NAMM 2012,” says Alfred Gonzales, National Sales Manager of American DJ. “American DJ has grown by providing mobile entertainers with tools that help them grow as performers and stay on the cutting edge of entertainment. At the same time, we've built our reputation on being a reliable source of user-friendly products. The GrandVJ fits our philosophy like a glove. It's the bridge that is taking our customers to the world of VJing - so they can take their performance to the next level.
“The big LED video wall with the GrandVJ and our VMS2 Midi controller will rock - and it's going to open a lot of eyes to what you can do with real time HD video mixing."
An additional opportunity to see GrandVJ in action will be provided in the demo area of the American DJ booth (#5774). Here Visual Artist, Xárene Eskandar, will be demonstrating GrandVJ and answering questions.
