"Both of these products have been designed to help creative people to achieve compelling entertainment and edutainment experiences with powerful and easy-to-use solutions," said Alex Carru, CEO of Medialon, in a statement.

The Showmaster Pro is designed for medium to large show control applications, such as museums, showrooms, stores, theme parks, attractions, or when a large amount of controlled devices require additional interfaces. It controls and synchronizes dimmers, lighting desks, video projectors, video servers, sound processors, and other devices. Showmaster Pro also includes two opto-isolated DMX I/Os, a balanced Time Code input, more serial ports, DMX and MIDI recording, and third-party extension capabilities, such as serial or relays over IP. Other features include 16x16 digital I/O, Sync Accuracy, Device Position Tracking, real-time testing, and e-mail alarms.

The Showmaster iPro was designed in partnership with Siemens for applications requiring complex PLC (programmable logic controller) control in sync with accurate show control, such as ride attraction and architectural show control. Built from a Medialon control engine in a Siemens mEc PLC, it runs in parallel with the regular Siemens real-time environment and connects to Medialon's ioBox for DMX, Time-Code, and Serial extensions, says the company. Free editing software embeds device synchronization, logical programming, and real-time testing, plus support for multiple timelines, third-party interfaces, unlimited touch-panel connections, and signal recording.

Medialon's Showmaster series is bundled with Showmaster Editor Software, which allows professionals to program applications faster than with conventional control systems through a drag-and-drop interface, according to the company. No coding or compilation are required, thanks in part to the software's native synchronization capabilities and timeline/drag-and-drop programming. Complex logical task programming is also available.
