Pro range machines have quad HD-SDI or dual 3G-SDI capture with a 42ms latency. You choose from 1080p/i, NTSC or PAL. Input configuration is automatic, and video patching is possible across multiple machines. Treat video input as any other content asset on the timeline, ready for effect layers and to be mapped onto your screens.
d3 accepts Art-Net input, enabling you to control cues on the timeline or to control any parameter value of any layer type. SockPuppet DMX lets you completely control d3 from your lighting console.
Use d3 to control any moving head or architectural DMX-based lights by outputting DMX over Art-Net, KiNET, ENTTEC, W.E.N.D.I., SOUNDLIGHT and EZDMX protocols.
Plug in LTC or MIDI TimeCode (MTC) into the rear ports of your d3 server to control the timeline of d3. Change tracks or trigger individual sections in the same track to different time code start times. All standard frame rates are supported. d3 can also output MTC to the stage.
MIDI control surfaces
Create your own virtual MIDI control surface inside d3 and map your virtual sliders, buttons, keyboards and dials to the corresponding items of your MIDI hardware. For live operation of d3 parameters, map any MIDI property to any parameter using d3’s advanced expression system. MIDI Show Control
Jump to specific sections of the timeline using MIDI Show Control from your MIDI controller. MIDI beat-clock
Synchronise your show to MIDI beat-clock to ensure perfect timing with the performers. MIDI notes
Jump to a different track or to specific cue in your timeline using MIDI notes. d3 can also send MIDI notes and send it to external devices.
OSC gives musicians and developers more flexibility in the types of data they can send, enabling new applications to communicate with each other at a higher level. Input OSC from any other device and map it to any parameter of any layer type in d3, ideal for live show environments.
No need to switch your matrix manually any longer. d3 supports automatic or timeline based preset-switching of a wide range of industry matrices, including the Barco and Lightware matrices.
Serial devices can be created and used to send rs232 communications via the available serial port. Commands can be sequenced on the timeline allowing for a complete show control environment.
d3 accepts screen tracking data from a wide range of industry leading motion control systems including Kinesys, Stage Kinetik and Navigator automation systems.
d3 can select the right track and play mode by using configurable schedulers based on what year, day, hour, minute and second currently is active, including scheduled exits of d3. This is particularly useful for fixed installations.
Save time and money by letting d3 control all properties such as zoom, pan, tilt, iris and gain in Sony VISCA cameras, from the timeline.
Input stereo audio into d3 and map audio frequencies to any parameter of a module. d3 lets you preview the incoming audio signal and adjust the gain to required level.
Navigate in d3's realtime simulator without time-consuming rendering.
Project onto the most complex surfaces using d3's Projector Simulation toolkit.
Utilise d3's advanced timeline to sequence to the beat or by the frame.
Use d3's advanced mapping features to map content up to 16K onto your screens.
Smoothly play up to 32 HD movies and a wide range of still image formats.
Configure LED and projector outputs using d3's advanced output functions.
To enable any number of outputs, connect multiple servers using d3Net.
Plug SDI, Artnet, MIDI, OSC, audio and tracking systems into your d3 show.
Explore different ways d3 ensures you to never lose your show.
