    Dear mappers,

    You can now download and try MadMapper 5.1 Beta which introduces a new extension: MadProjectorControl!

    The extension (which will be a paid feature once officially released) allows you to control your video-projectors remotely through the network using the PJLink protocol (
    With the help of MadMapper’s Calendar Scheduler & Cue Scheduler, you can also fully automate your installation, removing the need for a dedicated operator!

    Check out the Laser news as well in the release note below,

    The Beta is already available in the Downloads section of your user account ->

    And of course please report any bug you encounter or any feedback you'd like to share :)
