STAGE RESEARCH INTRODUCES
POWER POINT MANAGER
AND
VIDEO 101 MANAGER
FOR CONCERTS, CORPORATE, BROADWAY AND OFF-

Northfield, Ohio (July 23rd, 2008) - Stage Research, first in stage-show lighting-and-sound-works, has just introduced PowerPointManager and Video101Manager.  To be used with the incredible SFX for cost-effective playback, these two new energetic applications each perform robustly to provide high-grade content delivery with newfound ease and flexibility.  SFX, the industry's leading live music-and-sound playback software, will now trigger slides or video to add zest to any live presentation, or as stand-alone elements themselves.  

PowerPointManager enables users to control Microsoft's whiz-bang slideshow program effortlessly, with just the touch of a button.  "Pressing GO can load a PowerPoint, send NEXT, PREVIOUS, GO TO different slides," explains Stage Research's Carlton Guc.   "Now, all the feature-rich aspects of PowerPoint can be realized and integrated quickly and seamlessly into any business presentation, musical performance or theatrical production. " 

Video101Manager takes SFX to new heights by allowing techs/operators to play video from Stage Research SFX software in order to juxtapose projected motion over live action in a timely manner.   "This, " says Guc,  "has been requested by many smaller theaters wanting to incorporate video without having to spend large amounts of money for high-end video systems.  Video101Manager is available to any SFX user at no additional charge. " 

Stage managers, A.V. technicians and business presenters alike will enjoy the plus of not having to sort out, select and budget for additional equipment and software when the already-attained SFX is at their fingertips.   "With its many applications and adaptability, you'll be glad SFX is on hand, " remarks Guc.   "Stage Research PowerPointManager and Video101Manager will only enhance its versatility. "

About SFX

SFX is found at all levels of theater from academics to the pros. Professional theaters use the software to create reliable and enriched soundscapes and it has been employed in many award-winning shows, including several Tony Award winners. The academic stage (elementary education through college) and amateur theater appreciate SFX for the high quality of shows it can create and because it can be easily run by novice operators. Students using SFX get the added benefit of learning the software they will most likely work with when they enter the theatrical job market.

SFX 6 provides features that no other product can. It enables designers to refine and create effects on-site rather than having to shuttle back and forth between a studio and performance space. This affords the freedom to optimize sound designs for the acoustics of the space and other components of the performance. SFX 6's newly rewritten audio engine frees the need for an OS playback engine for hassle-free mixing and placement of audio. SFX 6 features an intuitive user-interface and can be programmed to run complex events with little or no user input.
