The Problem

When you create a show, the last thing you need are limitations.

The Solution

With the new Christie® Pandoras Box® Version 8 Software License, it’s goodbye limits and hello creativity! Version 8 adds up all already existing features to one software license and bundles them with new features such as NDI-Input, SDVoE, Dante Audio, NOTCH and Content Ingestion. Bring it together with the new Pandoras Box server, Widget Designer and other Christie solutions to deliver seamless, perfectly coordinated audio-visual solutions.

Technologies and key features:

As the first stand-alone Pandoras Box software solution under a single license, V8 drastically optimizes workflows and increases effectiveness through the full, native integration of NDI video-over-IP and Dante network audio, which processes and sends audio-visual signals over the entire installation. The completely visually reworked and simplified software menu and server management saves you time and gives you a quick and easy overview for even complex projects.

There are no limits to your creativity with the Notch system, which operates in real-time with Pandoras Box’s powerful render engine. The new content ingestion feature in Pandoras Box Version 8 lets you batch-handle massive amounts of content, which eases your workflow and saves time, especially during content-heavy shows.

Pandoras Box Version 8 also comes with a significant change to the price model and makes advanced features accessible for lower budgets as well.
