RUN THE NEW LEDMASTER IN 3 SIMPLE STEPS
The New LEDMaster is the all-in-one solution that allows anyone to run a lightshow. ArKaos has added new features to the existing set of tools provided by the software, including support for MIDI controllers, Art-Net DMX consoles and many more
Designed in a very smart way this LED control application allows you to do much more than just RGB. In 3 simple steps, it is fast and easy to use and will do most of the configuration automatically for you. Just map it, program it and perform... It's that simple!
STEP 1 - MAPPING MODE
LEDMaster Mapping mode
Your Kling-Net devices will be automatically recognized by the software, after which you can place them on the Canvas. By using Kling-Net, you can forget about Art-Net, DMX, nodes, addressing and everything else. It is all done for you. When Mapping the devices on the Canvas, virtual groups of devices called Zones can be defined. These will make your setup even more easy and flexible.
STEP 2 - PROGRAMMING MODE
The programming mode allows you to create Sequences in a very simple way. You can use our Live Patterns or you can use imported videos from your own library.
Our timeline based editor means you can easily program your full show, but of course you can also go for live interaction to make your show completely interactive.
Our completely new Live Pattern generator will allow you to have? hard edged visual output on the smallest? or biggest LED installations. Forget about buying expensive videos or the headache of creating them yourself. We will generate them live for you, based on the mapping you have made.
STEP 3 - PERFORMANCE MODE
Live performance is the key for the show. Trigger the Sequences you created live, manually, randomly or sequentially. You have all the options available to create the show that you prefer. Our easy beat detection makes sure that Visuals are synchronized with the music. Also Live Patterns can generate unique visuals adapted to the sound atmosphere of your show.

Kling-Net is a protocol designed to simplify the setup and operation of display devices such as LED devices. Those LED devices are connected to a computer through a standard Ethernet network.
The new standard for pixel control
ArKaos has designed the Kling-Net protocol to allow the distribution of real-time video data to remote display devices, such as LEDs or LED panels, over Ethernet.
Many first time users are afraid of using LED lighting because of the complexity of networking and control issues. Using and networking LED lighting has required a high level of technical knowledge which has been a deterent for many.
We wanted to remove all this complexity and replace it with an easy protocol which automatically takes care of the magic numbers for the user!
The purpose of Kling-Net is:
To allow the automatic configuration and connection of display devices to a computer
To add some ‘intelligence’ into display devices, which enables auto configuration
To ensure a perfect time synchronization of multiple display devices
To avoid using expensive hardware video converters to send video to display devices
To allow the creation of an heterogenic network of display devices from different manufacturers, which can all be controlled from one computer
EASIER THAN EVER
Kling-Net uses a Media Server to do all the work, making operation simpler than ever. It adds a layer of ‘intelligence’ to even the most simple LED device, enabling it to talk directly to the Media Server. This then enables the LED devices to configure themselves automatically, removing the need for complicated setup processes.
Kling-Net’s auto configuration capabilities allow a large range of devices to be controlled by the same Media Server, thus avoiding the painful process of creating and matching profiles between the Media Server and each individual device.
At power up, the LED devices are detected and configured automatically by Kling-Net before sending their resolution and pixel format to the Media Server. The Media Server can then read and change parameters from the device. This makes the whole process extremely fast and easy, while minimising the potential for mistakes!
Once a device is registered to a Media Server, it will start receiving video frames, as mapped by the user onto the Media Server’s display, in real-time.
Because the Media Server performs the image clipping and transformation then outputs the correct pixel format, the work to be done by the display device is minimal. And since the Media Server does all the work, your video can play at a smooth 60 FPS.
ADDED INTELLIGENCE = SIMPLICITY = ECONOMY
In order to allow auto configuration of display devices, some intelligence needs to be added to standard LED devices. A small micro controller is used to implement the support of the few network messages exchanged with the Media Server. That processor is very inexpensive to ensure a low cost duplication for the manufacturers.
Network messages are managed by the Media Server and sent as either Broadcast or Unicast messages, with the default being Unicast to optimize the amount of ‘traffic’ and minimise the load of the receiver. Kling-Net also has robust error recovery enabling the Media Server to automatically reconnect.
Kling-Net brings LED lighting within reach of the smallest clubs and venues by making it less technical and less expensive. LED lighting is now easy to use and cost effective; thanks to the Kling-Net protocol you no longer have to use expensive devices to obtain sophisticated control.
Kling-Net has been designed to work with mostly any manufacturers’ LED products. It relies on a source code which is capable of transforming even the most simple LED device into an intelligent Kling-Net device.
