VJing Made So Simple Anyone Can Do It With The Milkymist One

The Qi Hardware project is proud to announce the Milkymist One video

Milkymist One video Synthesizer

A total power consumption of 5 watts and latency of 60 milliseconds
are the highlights of the new high-performance video synthesizer.
Without additional computer, Milkymist One takes line-in audio to
create real-time music visualizations. Ideal for musicians and DJs,
restaurant and bar owners, people organizing parties or interested in
visual art. The included camera feeds live video into the synthesis.

Milkymist One is the second product launched by Qi Hardware after the
Ben NanoNote in March 2010. While the NanoNote was built around a
MIPS-architecture SoC, Milkymist One takes copyleft freedoms one step
further by being the first free computing architecture built around
the GPL licensed 32-bit Milkymist SoC.

Visual artists benefit by being able to program their patches,
including connectivity and control of DMX lights, lasers and MIDI
instruments, all directly and in real-time from the Milkymist One
synthesizer. Network connectivity allows the inclusion of live Twitter
feeds. Free software programmers benefit by having the first fully
programmable graphics accelerator at their disposal, opening the world
of reusable and portable Verilog to free software developers.

Milkymist SoC is a new generation of collaboratively developed IC
designs, founded in 2007 by Sebastien Bourdeauducq. It aims to be an
ARM competitor with new sharism business model, allowing for greater
development speed and better customization and optimization in
embedded products.

Milkymist One is available from Sharism Ltd. now, and sells for 499
USD plus shipping from Taipei.
