SAN FRANCISCO, CA • February 1, 2007 - Cycling '74, a San Francisco-based music and video software company, today released Cyclops v. 1.3 which adds Universal Binary support for Intel-based Macs running OS 10.4 or later. Cyclops, developed by Eric Singer of Code Artistry LLC, is a Max/MSP object for video color, grayscale and motion detection. It is a perfect solution for artists and performers who want to add video control to their work without investing in expensive standalone hardware or software.
Cyclops' control output allows for seamless integration of motion control and object tracking into Max/MSP, our interactive programming environment. Max/MSP and the Jitter video/3D graphics objects are already available for Intel-based Macs.
New York-based artist and programmer Eric Singer is the author of the Cyclops object for Max/MSP, the founder of LEMUR (League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots), and created the MidiTron MIDI to real-world interface.
Cycling '74 creates software for the specialized needs of artists, educators, and researchers working with audio, visual media, and physical computing. Our visual programming tools Max/MSP and Jitter serve as the creative engine behind thousands of innovative projects.
