“We are very excited about this new collaboration with Dirigent,” said ArKaos business development manager Agnes Wojewoda. “Dirigent has been established for a very long time and is ideally placed to bring our GrandVJ range to the Japanese music market. The team is very eager to start distributing our products, organising workshops and product training and is in an excellent position to offer full and reliable after-sales support.”
Dirigent Corporation was founded in Tokyo in 1990. The company prides itself on the level of information and advice it gives its customers, conveying ideas for creating fascinating sounds and providing better solutions to designers.
ArKaos develops visual synthesisers that trigger and manipulate graphic content for display on large screens at concerts, clubs and the like. GrandVJ is real-time video mixer software that allows up to eight layers of video to be composed on the fly. Its intuitive interface lets the musician or VJ turn their keyboard into a super controller for zipping through the functions. The user can take any video from a hard drive, add effects to it and start making their own video show.
GrandVJ runs on both PC and Mac and accepts all common video and image formats.
“We are greatly excited to make this collaboration with the world-famous visual software development team, ArKaos,” said Dirigent’s sales manager, Fukashi Nakaya. “Our long experience combined with ArKaos’ innovativeness will definitely make a successful synergy in the Japanese market.”
