(copied from the VWG thread) Hello friends -- I've had a terrible and stressful past several weeks. Changes in my personal life, my diabetic daughter in the hospital for a few days, all have implied increasing demands on my time.

The latter -- it can process any video rate input -- when fed a linear slope, it acts like a frequency multiplier where you can get multiples of the original slope. So with say, a luma (black and white) camera image, you would get complex ringed solarization which grows more dense as the image grows...

They will conform to our typical power guidelines of 10mA per HP per rail. So 140mA per rail max (probably lower.)

All are 14HP and I'm shooting for a consistent price of $399 each (that could vary.)

This should be okay, but AFAIK the uZeus power supply only produces 500mA on the -12V rail, and Cortex uses half of that, so you may not have much room in your power supply left unless you pick very low power modules. You may want to upgrade power to 4ms Row40 or Row30 in the future.

We're waiting on frontpanels (another 2 weeks likely) and assembly is proceeding briskly in the meantime. Hoping to get all pending modules out the weekend of the 23rd, but possibly the 30th. Just wanted to give an update -- thanks for your patience!

We can still take a few more orders for this run. If you want one and can only make a partial payment now, that is fine, let me know!

The simulator was just a super quick thing in Flash/AS3. It runs pretty slow, but I needed something so I could visualize output and tweak controls. I try to design modules so that by the time I'm actually building/prototyping, everything is as close to fine tuned as possible. This is largely becaus...

Colorspace Mapper isn't discontinued, we'll be making more of those for sure. Voltage Interface I can be built in small batches too. The issue (and this is my personal frustration) is that I keep having ideas for next generation implementations of these modules. But actually bringing those concepts ...

I'm sure we can do another run of Ramps. All of the older modules we are still set up to build in small handbuilt batches. Just shoot me an e-mail and we'll work something out!

OK! You'll want to put it right at the end of the chain before the upscaler. That will give the upscaler something more stable to lock onto.

It's also worth pointing out, if there were any misconceptions, that you need Video Sync Generator in order for Color Video Encoder to work. Then you'll need some sort of video locked waveform generators to make shapes, and some modules to mix and key. Visual Cortex has all that basic stuff in one u...

I had checked that out, definitely an awesome device, but unfortunately I'd like to the video to respond to my audio.
The 3trinsRGB+1c has three separate Audio inputs for modulation. You can definitely visualize audio with it.

Just a note here: Color Video Decoder, Video Sync Generator, Video Ramps, and Triple Video Input are all discontinued and merged into the Visual Cortex module, which is the new core of the system. This module is designed as a starting point and "learning lab" environment, since it contains a bit of ...

What is your goal in adding a TBC to your setup? Are you wanting to correct a signal in your chain that gets glitchy? Improve performance for final output? Frame synchronize one signal to another? The answer to your question is dependent on what you're trying to accomplish.

Hi y'all! So sorry it's taken me a couple days to update this thread. Here's where we're at: I took orders for 80 total modules. The first 50 shipped out on Tuesday morning.

We're up late and have 5 more modules to box -- haven't printed any shipping labels yet, so that may have to wait until tomorrow. So expect to start seeing those shipping notifications tomorrow afternoon.

Hi spacecabinet! Is there's a way to shift, let's say a circle, to the top left quadrant of the screen? You'd think this would be simple, but in an analogue system it's a little more complex. The upcoming Navigator module, 14HP, is a waveshaper designed to give you X/Y position and rotation control ...

You can get into XYZ-to-XY projection algorithms too, and 3-axis rotation, if you want to dig even deeper.

A standard video distribution amplifier should do the job, I think!
Or is this a time base correction issue? (Maybe what the tech was referring to by sampling.)
