Creamsource CreamOS 2.0 – Newsshooter

0

At NAB 2022, Creamsource announced Bone Cream 2.0a new firmware update for its Vortex luminaires.

New features in CreamOS 2.0 include RDM support, custom white point for “CCT Crossfade HSI” and “CCT Crossfade RGBW” color modes. There are also “DMX User Presets” for quick access to different DMX configurations, save/restore settings and user presets on USB stick, and HTP merging of up to 4 incoming sACN sources.

With the latest CreamOS 2.0 architecture, the Vortex8 and Vortex4 are now equipped with pre-programmed effects, color gels, multi-zone control and innovative FrameSync technology for enhanced effects and creative applications.

RDM support via wired DMX and CRMX

Remote Device Management (RDM) allows lighting designers to configure the Vortex directly from the lighting console. With RDM, it is no longer necessary to physically access the device to change the DMX mode, DMX address or any other parameter.

Custom white point to ‘CCT Crossfade HSI’ and ‘CCT Crossfade RGBW’ color modes

Custom white point to “CCT Crossfade HSI” and “CCT Crossfade RGBW” color modes allows users to set the “white” point when using RGBW or HSI crossfade modes. CCT (between 2200K and 15000K) and Green/Magenta tint can be adjusted, allowing matching with other sources or white balance of video content played via an external media server.

DMX User Presets

DMX User Presets allow users to save and recall up to 4 different DMX configurations. DMX mode, address, smoothing mode, dimming curve and sACN universe are all saved, and the user can recall the preset with just a few button presses. Presets can also be given a custom name (e.g. “Studio 1 Setup” or “Location 2”). This is especially useful for fixtures used across multiple sets and gives users the confidence to easily switch between locations and their corresponding configurations.

Save/Restore settings to USB flash drive

Save/Restore Settings to USB Drive allows users to save all settings to a USB drive, allowing easy cloning of configurations between devices. All settings are saved including high speed mode, dimming curves, fan mode, DMX user presets and all other user settings. Settings are saved as a text file for easy editing on a Mac or PC.

Save/Restore User Presets to USB Drive

Save/Restore User Presets to USB Drive allows users to save user presets to a USB drive, allowing easy copying of colors and effects between devices. User presets can also be renamed to give them descriptive names (e.g. “Favorite Moonlight” or “Scene 1 Fire Effect”). Either a single user preset or all presets can be saved to the player. Presets are saved as a text file for easy editing on a Mac or PC.

HTP fusion of up to 4 incoming sACN sources

HTP merging of up to 4 incoming sACN sources is particularly beneficial for large productions where setup is likely to be complicated: media servers, lighting consoles, etc., interacting with each other. This feature allows multiple sources to be merged using HTP (Highest Takes Precedence). For example, the RGB data can come from the media server, but retain the custom white point and dimmer control of the lighting console.
