This is our preferred custom software environment, working with it since 1995. In fact, all of the early versions of VIDVOX software (VDMX, GRID and GRID PRO) were all developed using MAX with video extensions including NATO.0+55 SoftVNS and JITTER. VDMX has now matured into a Objective C application, however we still use Max for custom studio applications, and show-specific programming.
Over the years we’ve written dozens of commercial quality custom apps for museums, artists, composers and theaters. Our most recent application is for meta-control mapping of VDMX and a hardware VIXID video mixer, using an Ohm64 as a control surface, while simultaneously supporting iPhone/ iPads to wirelessly control the system via TouchOSC.
