Here's the pres release...
On October 29th, MixVibes presented its new VFX CONTROL Video-DJ solution at the MixVibes 10 years' event. The unveiling of the product was supported by 3 performances, including a 1 hour performance by world-acclaimed DJ Zebra. After premiering his Video-DJ performance, DJ Zebra said "VFX Control is a blast! I'm only a few days into using VFX CONTROL, and am already able to bring all the visual inspirations I have collected over the past few years into my [Video-DJ] set!"
What does VFX CONTROL consist of?
VFX CONTROL enables you to mix, scratch, crossfade and synchronize your multimedia files - such as music videos, movies, music - through the intuitive interface of a classic DJ booth: 2 channels and a central mixer. The package is an all-in-one turnkey solution including VFX software and an Audio/MIDI controller unit.
MixVibes' powerful VFX software not only allows you to play the most popular music and video file formats, but also to add exclusive content to your performance:
  • insert text, dynamic flash animations, visuals or your logo on the fly.
  • liven your mix with 20 audio/video effects. Each audio effect is translated into a visual effect. Visual effects can be synchronized with the audio BPM.
  • broadcast live from external video sources (webcams, camcorders...)
  • manage multiple playlists and file formats : mp4, mpeg, wmv, avi, mov, divx, wav, mp3... (see below for full list)
  • browse through your files visually using file covers and album jackets
The supplied MIDI controller is designed to offer a mouse free performance. It is light and mobile and easily fits in installations such as bars, clubs or restaurants with its 19 inch rack design. It features a built-in soundcard with 3 stereo channel outputs: 2 for audio playback, 1 for headphone monitoring. For high precision mixing, the touch-sensitive jogwheels offer latency-free scratching and pitch bending.
