JMX as an opensource realtime engine with a dataflow gui editor that enables creation and manipulation of digital media, such as audio and video.
JMX is a fresh start to code, free and open source and takes advantage of the power offered by media frameworks on the OSX platform. Born our of the experience of FreeJ the software is rapidly reaching the alpha stage of development after just a few months of activity.
JMX is actually built on top of Apple(r)’s operating system, and makes use of all the capabilities it gives: CoreAudio, CoreVideo, CoreGraphics, CoreImage.
The aim is also to create a JMXKit, which will allow other developers to use the engine in their own multimedia applications.
The project is still young, but we’ve envisioned some applications for it already:
* Real time audio/video compositing
JMX can allow creating real-time compositions
* Art academies
being JMX open source, it can be easily adopted
by educational entities that teach digital art;
* Online media streaming
JMX can be used to stream both simple video or audio files,
but also live performance compositions;
* Live performances
JMX is all about signaling events, and those can be used
to drive a live performance, such as changing image properties
depending on data provided by a spectrum analyzer.
* Visual data representation
from some source and visually represent that;
* Scientific analysis
because of the dynamic nature of JMX and it’s integration
several kinds of scientific tasks;
