Almere, NL - VisualDMX lighting control software has been used to great effect for a commercial installation in a Toys "R" Us retail store in Almere, Netherlands.
Dutch manufacturer Multileds used the VisualDMX matrix lighting controller, Matrix Mania! to programme and control a matrix set-up of 12 tiles of 50cm x 50cm each made to custom fit a metal frame sunk into the floor and flush to the stone floor tiles.
Joost Woreel from Multileds was approached by Toys "R" Us to provide a complete solution that would attract visitors to the escalators leading to their store located on the top floor of a shopping centre. Joost says he choose to use VisualDMX with an Elite interface as VisualDMX at the moment is the product for Multileds. It is easy and really great to work with Visual to control our LED tiles.
The VisualDMX Elite interface was programmed with consecutive sequences running at random to provide an ever changing eye-catching motif. The design incorporates 3 paths running to the escalators giving Toys "R" Us what they have said is the brilliant and unique solution that they were hoping for.

Haarlemmermeer, NL - During the summer months VisualDMX was used in a diversity of festivals around Benelux. From Wesley in Concert at the IJssportcentrum in Tilburg to the ID&T Sensation VIP rooms at the Amsterdam Arena, VisualDMX is becoming the preferred choice of software controller for many freelance programmers, especially when requiring a Matrix controller.
At the open-air Mystery Land festival VisualDMX came into its own with the ingenious programming of Allard de Jaager to control a large matrix of Parcans hanging over the Q Dance Stage. De Jaager uses VisualDMX regularly, sighting price and user friendliness as key reasons: it's cheap and relatively easy to operate. When you use it with a keyboard you can generate some really nice effects. For Mystery Land he chose VisualDMX because of the easy to use Matrix Controller, Matrix Mania!.
At the end of October VisualDMX will be exhibiting at the Dutch tradeshow Mile 2006. We have been invited by QMAXZ Lighting to join them on the stand of their partner PHD Professional. The Dutch company QMAXZ Lighting; manufacturer of moving lights - "provide a unique solution for design and development" invited us to programme and control their fixtures on the stand which also allows for an area where visitors can come along and experience the new features of VisualDMX, such as VisualTouch firsthand.
We hope to see you there!

Amsterdam, NL - Tom van den Heuvel used VisualDMX and Matrix Mania! not only at ID&T Sensation VIP rooms at the Amsterdam Arena where he used 74 Pulsar Chroma panels ( 94 x 2 pixels matrix) but also to great effect at the TMF Awards VIP after show party on a LED dance floor.
Tom felt compelled to use VisualDMX because according to him Matrix Mania! is "powerful and very easy to patch and make into a matrix: doesn't matter if its small or big as you can adapt easily and quickly the size and the patterns of the programmed images too".
Rotterdam, NL - During the summer an interactive campaign - “Join the Party with Bacardi”- was launched in Dutch cinemas to promote the Bacardi drink.
The advertisement was filmed in the “Now & Wow” Club in Rotterdam. The recognisable theme of girls and boys partying with Bacardi was used to accompany the additional storyline of the DJ wowing the girl.
VisualDMX was specified as controller for the DJ Booth which boasted a LED wall and thus the necessity of a Matrix controller with the versatility and strengths that are offered by Matrix Mania, the specialised Matrix controller within VisualDMX.
Matrix Mania’s ability to quickly adapt all inbuilt matrix patterns to the red, Bacardi style, colour theme proved very useful and saved the crew valuable time when programming on site.
The LED and VisualDMX equipment was supplied by Amsterdam based rental company PartyTime.
Aalsmeer, NL - This May saw VisualDMX testing the wits of contestants vying for the big € 100,000 cash prize on the Dutch National Lotteryâ€™s monthly game show: De Staatsloterij.
Producer Endemol asked Visual Productions to programme a special facility in the VisualDMX software that would enable it to control a new game based on the Labyrinth principle. Two 18 square meter platforms of MultiLEDs floor were supplied by Blue Magic rental and project house, located close to the Studio Aalsmeer used for filming the show.
Utilizing the ever popular Matrix Mania! software feature of VisualDMX, the software was programmed to enable a complex route of touching squares travelling from one side to the other of the LED floor, to be hidden from sight until the contestants step on the correct path. VisualDMX was linked via MIDI to a show control system; in the event of a contestant standing on an incorrect square, lights flashed and buzzers sounded signalling for them to start from the beginning again.
The Director requested a path "as difficult as possible" that resulted in a 15 minute marathon session of audience members standing in their seats shouting directions to the contests running back and forth to find the correct route, both out of breath and desperate to be greeted by the flashing lights and applause signalling a win for them.
To join in the Labyrinth of fun you can download the latest release of VisualDMX from the website which now includes this new game feature.
