SNP Productions At PLASA 09

A proactive dealer and specialist for Catalyst media servers, providing sales, hire, training and support in the UK and worldwide, SNP Productions is moving forward.
SNP also supplies complete lighting and video control solutions for all areas of the professional entertainment industry.
SNP will be demonstrating the power and flexibility of the latest Catalyst media servers, highlighting the myriad of different possible configurations to suit all needs, along with peripheral equipment, plus SNP Productions' own unique Catalyst System Flight-cases.
Catalyst version 4.2 software will be of great interest to all those involved in live visuals and media. New features include an increased number of layers per version - up to 32 layers and 16 mixes for the PRO version, 8 layers/8 mixes for the DV versions, 4 layers/6 mixes for Express and 2 layers/4 mixes for Lite.
New and improved features include the layers and mix count being adjustable in Preferences. The mix parameters are now controllable via DMX, including curved mixes and offsets, with spherical mapping for Pufferfish, curved and globe shaped objects, along with a 12 video input capability and support for Phoenix SDI/HD-SDI input cards.
There is also camera control for Sony BRC-300 robotic cameras and others, OSC protocol support, user selectability of control devices, improved MIDI control and tools, improved SMPTE options, new Pixel Mix areas, new Layer Transport Controls and an enhanced web server, including a documentation page.
Flightcases are available to order with all system supplied by SNP, tailored exactly to fit the individual Catalyst configuration and the application - whether installation or touring. The cases are robustly constructed and are an essential element of any contemporary digital media server set up.
Some recent fine tuning to the SNP Catalyst System flightcases includes - increased ventilation, improved output panels and customised power distribution. The Artistic Licence range of DMX interfaces has also been introduced - Datalynx, Etherlynx, Catalynx - and with a mouse and keyboard insert in the lid as alternative to a 2u drawer, making everything much neater and more streamlined. There's also an enhanced LCD insert with a hinged lid, so that it can be used separately. A new range of briefcase flightcases for portable MacBook Pro based Catalyst systems fits the latest new 2009 15 and 17-inch MacBook Pros.
SNP's Simon Pugsley will be on the stand to discuss everyone's specific Catalyst requirements and queries.
With a long track record as a programmer and operator at the sharp end of the touring and event industry, Pugsley knows the system inside out, and is also well aware of the demands and pressures of a fast moving industry. All this makes SNP the perfect sales vehicle for the entertainment industry's favourite media server.
SNP invites visitors to get 'hands on' experience and explore Catalyst's extensive features.
