ArKaos takes the opportunity of the Apple Expo 2005 in Paris to uncover the new version of its flagship product, ArKaos VJ 3.5.1 HW, opening the software to the wonderful world of Core Image, the new real-time video technology from Apple.

ArKaos is proud to present the new accelerated version of its real-time video mixing application, ArKaos VJ 3.5.1 HW. This version takes full advantage of the processing capabilities residing in the new generation of graphical hardware present in the latest Apple Computers, using the GPU reduces the engine workload and allows access to the optimized video effects from the Core Image library introduced by Apple in Mac OS X Tiger (

Thanks to this new processing pipeline, ArKaos VJ now delivers superior image quality, access to higher output resolutions and a handful of sizzling new effects.

After the support of FreeFrame effects introduced in ArKaos VJ 3.5, it is now 73 new Core Image effects (Blur, stylize, generators, half-tone, distorsion...) that adds up to the real-time effect arsenal available to manipulate your visuals.

This version also extends the functionality of the DMX support, allowing to organize 127 banks of 256 visuals that can be triggered from a DMX compatible lighting console without the need to load any configuration Patch. This way, light designers can always rely on having their favourite visuals ready at any time.
