BALTAN PLAYER – first sketch
Baltan Player is a HD AV-surround player assembled by Telcosystems / Baltan Laboratories in dialogue with Recombinant Media Labs. The aim of this R&D project is to develop a stable, scalable, frame-sync playback system for digital AV-material.
The initial focus lies on achieving synchronous playback of low-res material by making use of the accuracy of a DSP phasor signal.
The first test-configuration consists of a basic server-client setup with two Macs running Max5. The phasor signal sent out by the server should be able to perform stable 25fps-playback of a simple Quicktime clip in VGA resolution. Converting a digital audio signal into an accurate frame-number of a movie-clip was the first task to be done. All the commands for play/pause, in-to-outpoint looping and playback-speed of the video-clip needed an equivalent expression in MSP. (more…)
