Medialon control systems now support PosiStageNet protocol

25th September 2020

Medialon control systems now support PosiStageNet protocol, which is an open standard for media servers, lighting control systems, stage automation, and motion tracking systems to exchange real-time information about physical movement of objects through space (for example: position, speed, rotation, acceleration, target position).

Medialon’s new MxM PosiStageNet Client listens for PosiStageNet messages on the network and allows the Medialon programmer to subscribe to data that is relevant for the operation of the show control system.

Since Medialon can act as a protocol translator, it is possible to have data coming in via PosiStageNet from a stage automation system be used to speed up or slow down video playback, or move the content within a projected canvas to keep the media on a set piece.
