Bridge

Bridge is a multi-function utility module for video synthesizers.  It is designed with the simple goal of packing a variety of always useful utility functions into a compact, low cost package.

 

    • Dual buffered multiples with three outputs and voltage scaling.  In amplify setting, input signals are amplified by a factor of five.  In attenuate setting, input signals are attenuated by a factor of five.  These scalers allow quick translation between standard EuroRack audio world 5V signal levels and LZX video module 1V signal levels.

 

    • Single wideband voltage controlled crossfader/multiplier with CV inversion switch.  It can be patched as a single VCA, a crossfader/switcher between two inputs, or when combined with the mixer section a 4-quadrant multiplier.

 

  • Single three input signal mixer.  Two adding inputs and one subtracting input.  One adding input can alternately perform a mirrored inversion (1V – input signal.)

Curtain
Curtain
Curtain

Curtain is a video edge processor designed for sharpening, blurring, and outline extraction.  Comprised of a wideband voltage controlled filter and multiplier, it is similar to tools used for X-Ray analysis in the era of analog graphics.  Curtain is equally useful for processing video images as it is for adding dimensionality and contours to shapes and patterns.

 

    • Voltage controlled filter with 1:100 continuous tuning ratio allows a full sweep from thin to wide time constants.  Three range settings cover a cutoff range from 100Hz to 5MHz.

 

    • Switchable rectifier allows selection of positive rising edges and falling negative edges, both edges positive, rising edge only, or falling edge only.

 

    • Voltage controlled depth allows a continuous sweep of filter output amplitude and inversion.  This enables settings from blur to sharpen on a single modulation channel.

 

    • Separate inputs for the filter and output mix allow edge processing from once source and output mixing with another. Dedicated filter and mix outputs allow further external processing.

 

    • All signal and control paths perform at high frequency, video rate modulation speeds.

 

  • AC/DC input coupling switches and inverting level attenuators on  voltage control inputs.

Cyclops
Cyclops
Cyclops

Cyclops is an interface module which converts EuroRack modular  signals to the International Laser Display Association (ILDA) specification for laser show projectors.   We recommend connecting Cyclops to a EuroRack modular system rich in VCOs (especially quadrature sources), multipliers, and signal mixers  in order to synthesize a full range of oscillographics patterns and lissajous geometries.

    • Compatible with any RGB laser projector with an ILDA standard input port.

 

    • 5 channel interface: X & Y Position (+/-5V) and Red, Green & Blue (0-5V.)  Configuration switches on the module rear alternatively allow selection of LZX video standard signals (0-1V.)

 

    • Voltage Control Input, Voltage Control Attenuator and Bias Control per input channel.

 

    • Input inversion switches for X & Y voltage control inputs.

 

    • Master XY scale control sets overall size of laser image.

 

    • ILDA standard differential output drivers for each channel to ILDA standard DB25 connector port.  A DB25 serial cable is all you need to connect this module to a wide range of compatible laser projectors.

 

    • Selectable low-pass filters on X & Y channels with settings for 20KPPS and 30KPPS projectors & filter bypass.
    • Interlock & Shutter switches for remote control of laser projector.

 

What laser should I buy? Any RGB laser with an ILDA standard input port will work.  The laser projectors we used while testing were generic models purchased from Chinese sellers on eBay and cost around $250 USD.

Warning!  High frequency signals can damage some laser projectors.  While the module does include field and bench tested protection filtering against high frequencies as a default feature, you should always listen for loud buzzing or distorted noises coming from your projector which may indicate it is being driven faster than its galvos can handle. Adjust filter settings and use this module at your own risk.

Doorway
Doorway
Doorway

Doorway is a linear video key generator and compositor, also known as a soft keyer.  A typical video key is generated using a comparator circuit, where the ouput is a binary state: on or off.  Doorway instead achieves key generation via high gain amplification and clipping of the input source.  The edge of the resulting key is therefore composed of a variable percentage of the input signal, centered around the threshold point.

 

    • Voltage controlled threshold across the full input range. Video rate modulation paths allow displacement of the threshold by another shape or image source.

 

    • Voltage controlled gain amplifies input signal up to a gain of X64, enabling a continuous sweep from fully soft to fully hard edge.

 

    • Foreground and background level controls and signal inputs allow the negative and positive space of the resulting key to be set to any grayscale level, or be filled with external signals.  This aids the compositing of multiple shapes and patterns.

 

    • Outline mode switches a full wave rectifier into the signal path.  In this mode, gain controls the width of the outline rather than the softness of the key's edge.

 

    • AC/DC input coupling switches and inverting level attenuators on voltage control inputs.

Mapper
Mapper

Mapper is a complex utility module which translates Hue, Saturation and Brightness voltages into component YUV (Luma, R-Y, B-Y) and RGB (Red, Green, Blue) colorspaces.  At its heart is an analog, wideband polar-to-cartesian coordinates waveshaper with up to 720 degrees of linear rotation.  Black and white (Luma) video sources can be fed into the Hue modulation input to achieve vivid thermographic vision colorizer effects, and that's just Mapper's most obvious use case.

Navigator
Navigator
Navigator

Navigator is the front end of a 2D analog graphics engine.  Designed to take two input voltages representing X and Y points on a display, it can perform adjustment and modulation of their position, anchor point, and continuous rotation in 360 degrees.  A typical use case is to process the horizontal and vertical ramp waveforms generated by Visual Cortex, before passing them to a shape or pattern generator.  In this case, Navigator repositions and rotates the resulting shape.  Since the entire signal path performs at video rates from input to output, the processing opportunities are limitless: cycle color components of external video, rotate objects inside of rotating objects with series processing, or patch your outputs into an XY display, laser projector interface or oscilloscope to open a whole new world of possibilities.

 

    • Voltage controlled XY position and anchor point channels allow summing of a modulating voltage before and after rotation processes.

 

    • Analog rotation processor with digital control allows modulation of the hue angle directly, or of the rotation spin speed in clockwise or counterlockwise directions.

 

    • Dual full wave rectifiers allow for ramp-to-triangle shaping of the input signal. This enables quadrilateral and bilateral symmetrical mirroring of the resulting transformations.

 

    • Signal path performs at high frequency, video rate speeds from input to output.

 

  • AC/DC input coupling switches and inverting level attenuators on  voltage control inputs.

Prismatic Ray
Prismatic Ray

Prismatic Ray is the next generation of the LZX Industries analogue widerange Voltage Controlled Oscillator design.  With a max frequency range into the megahertz and hard sync input with phase stability, it is uniquely qualified for video synthesis techniques.  In many VCO designs, modulation of waveform shape is achieved after the oscillator core, with modulation over output waveshaper circuits.  In this design, we place modulation in the core of the oscillator itself, allowing complex summing, linear key generation, multiplication and inversion to affect all the output waveshapes simultaneously.   When multiple waveshapes are patched to different color channels, the prismatic nature of this module begins to emerge.

 

    • Coarse & Fine tuning controls for oscillator frequency. Frequency Modulation voltage control input with dedicated level and inversion control.

 

    • AC/DC mode switch on all voltage control inputs allows for wider flexibility when routing control signals.

 

    • Simultaneous Triangle, Square, Sine, Anti-Sine, Exponential and Logarithmic waveshape outputs.

 

    • VCO core multiplier with dedicated level control and voltage control input.  High gain amplifier control enables fluid morphs between hard and soft edged waveshapes.  In 4 Quadrant mode, the output waveshapes can be inverted under voltage control.

 

  • VCO core bias level control and voltage control input allows control over the relative brightness of all the output waveshapes.  With other patterns or video as a modulation source, the bias input allows this module to function as a powerful external slope and key processor for any video signal.

Shapechanger
Shapechanger

We are now accepting pre-orders for Shapechanger.  We expect production units to ship by the second week of June, 2017.

Shapechanger is our most ambitious analog computing module to date. Designed to take two continuous input voltages representing X and Y points on a display, Shapechanger processes the size, width, height, aspect ratio, symmetry, and curve of a resulting quadrilateral figure. Combined with Navigator for positioning and rotation of the figure, these modules provide a holistic 2D analog graphics engine suitable for direct video synthesis and vector rescanning techniques. A typical use case is to process the horizontal and vertical ramp waveforms generated by Visual Cortex, and receive a 2D shape output. The resulting shape can be modulated and combined with other video and pattern elements to create complex geometries for the final output video.

 

    • 12 wideband analog multipliers and a dual channel signal path from input to output.

 

    • Voltage controlled aspect ratio allows morphs from rectangles to square and diamond shapes.

 

    • Voltage controlled symmetry allows morphs from squares to elongated diamonds and kites.

 

    • Voltage controlled size performs high gain multiplication for a zooming effect. This is fundamentally different from using a key generator to create a 2D shape, and keeps gamma curve shaping independent from size modulation.

 

    • Voltage controlled gamma curve allows continuous morphing from star to square to circle.

 

    • Signal path performs at high frequency, video rate speeds from input to output.

 

    • AC/DC input coupling switches and inverting level attenuators on all voltage control inputs.

 

    • Separate mask (flat shape) and gradient (linear shape) outputs provide flexible tools for compositing and colorization.

 

  • Dedicated H & V outputs for chained processing or vector rescanning techniques.
