Multimedia Show Automation?
DAZL® software is used to create and run highly automated, interactive multimedia displays, generically referred to as “shows”.
A DAZL show is typically comprised of multiple scenes, each of which is an independently executable audio/animation timeline, mixing the playback of audio and (external) video with the synchronous control of lights, motors, relays and other show-related devices and effects. For example, different scenes could simultaneously be presenting talking animatronics, interactive puzzles and ambient audio with synchronized effects.
Separate scenes can also be used to present the sequential parts of a larger sequence. For example, in an escape room, there could be separate scenes to set the mood as people arrive, deliver an introduction, handle the countdown, handle success and failure, etc.
Furthermore, scenes can also be used to present triggered sounds, sequences and effects. For example, a scene might play a sound effect when a certain button is pressed, or change the lighting and play a video when a puzzle is solved.
DAZL shows can also respond to many show-related events, using conditional logic to direct show operation or implement complex functionality. Logic could execute, for example, when someone trips a sensor, a data packet is received, a timer expires, a scene changes state or a variable reaches a certain value (among many other things).
DAZL was created to deliver highly automated, interactive multimedia displays, such as are used in haunted houses, escape rooms, holiday light shows, staged effects, animatronic characters, museum and technical art installations, what have you. All without requiring a software programmer.
