Welcome to Dave Jones Design, a small company that manufactures some unique products for artists, multimedia producers, museums, trade show exhibitors, and other video professionals.

Discontinued

DVD Synchronizers

Our premiere product line of DVD synchronizers to control multiple DVD players in frame accurate multi-channel video presentations has now been discontinued. Pioneer has discontinued all industrial DVD players, the only fully controllable DVD players that our synchronizers could communicate with. Used players are still easy to get on eBay, but demand for the synchronizers has fallen so much that we decided to discontinue them, except for rare custom orders.

Discontinued

AllPlay Blu-Ray Controller

AllPlay

Actually, it was never released. Pioneer discontinued their industrial Blu-Ray players, which were the only truely controllable Blu-Ray players. So there was no point continuing to develop the AllPlay.

New Direction

Analog Video and Audio Synthesizer Modules

We are moving in a new direction. Actually, an old direction for us.

We are going back to our roots and making analog video and audio modules for visual artists and musicians. We have created a new web site for these products, though plan to also list information here about those products too. For a "Blog" style site, with info about the currently available modular video and audio products, please visit: JonesVideo.com   

That site will be going through a fecelift soon, so please bear with us. It's difficult to develop a wide range of new products and at the same time maintain several web sites with up to date information.


MVIP

Mini Video Image Processor

MVIPThe MVIP is a Eurorack module for processing live and recorded video images. Because it is a Eurorack module, it requires being placed in a Eurorack compatable case with a power supply. It will not work on it's own.

This module is a stand alone video module, with a standard definition (SD) composite video input and output. It accepts either PAL or NTSC video, and puts back out the same format video that you put in. The MVIP then allows you to manipulate the image in a number of ways, including reducing colors, positive/negative, luminance colorizing, and digital bit swapping effects (which give interesting contrast shifts, crazy or subtle colors, and multiple digital threshholds.

All of the controls are voltage controllable from most audio or video synthesizers. So you can plug oscillators and other types of control voltages to shift colors, and manipulate the style of image processing.

The MVIP has a suggested US retail price of $595, and is available directly from us or from several dealers internationally.


O'Tool

Oscilloscope and Audio Tools

OtoolThe O'Tool is a Eurorack module for displaying information about audio and control voltages in a Eurorack modular audio synthesizer. Because it is a Eurorack module, it requires being placed in a Eurorack compatable case with a power supply. It will not work on it's own.

The O'Tool is a multi-purpose tool for musicians and audio artists working with audio synthesizers. It can also be useful to video artists who use control voltages to control video modules, though the O'Tool will not directly display video frequency signals.

The O'Tool is a two channel oscilloscope, but it is so much more. It is also a level meter, VU meter, spectrum analyzer (linear and LOG), X/Y display, frequency meter, guitar/oscillator tuner, and DC voltmeter.

The O'Tool is currently out of stock and is going through a revision change. New price and specifications will be posted as soon as they are known.


New Book

The Emergence of Video Processing Tools: Television Becoming Unglued

ETC BookA new book has been released through the Experimental Television Center, called:
The Emergence of Video Processing Tools: Television Becoming Unglued

It is a two volume set (both volumes come together for one price), with a total of 442 pages, edited by Sherry Miller Hocking, Kathy High, and Mona Jimenez.

It has a lot of information, and a lot of photos, of the early days of image processing and the people involved in it.

Also available for Kindle.
