Utilizing an intuitive touchscreen-optimized user interface, Maxedia™ is the most user-friendly tool for media composing and playback in all types of applications. Access a vast library of media clips, still images and integrated animations without the need for a complex lighting controller.

Maxedia Compact Rackmount™ is a budget-minded solution with slightly reduced features. Up to twenty layers of SD and HD video media can be placed into a cue and it contains the same amount of content as Maxedia PRO™ for immediate results. Pixel mapping is possible with Maxedia Compact RM™. This is an ideal package for installations, productions and rental companies as it is mounted in a small 2U rack housing.
