LATENCIES ARE COMPENSATED
infinimesh is the only IoT platform that enables synchronized midi streams. Latencies between different locations can be balanced via the IoT platform. Of course, various container formats for streaming data can be integrated (e.g. multi-channel audio and video).
The midi data is transferred via the MQTT protocol or simple TCP/IP messages. Of course, SysEx dumps and updates for operating systems of grooveboxes, standalone synthesizers and workstations can also be synchronized.
The rights and roles management and the zero-trust token system enable the management of customer authorizations for software plug-in providers. Namespace management organizes the management of different timecode references.
INFINIMESH-IOT PLATFORM: UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES THROUGH SENSOR INTEGRATION
The infinimesh IoT platform offers endless potential for sensor integration. Sensor measurements can be immediately converted into midi controller data and subjected to logical operations in a rule engine before being transmitted via the platform to connected midi instruments such as synthesizers, effects and mixers. By integrating AI music plugins and LSTM-ML algorithms, musical projects can be taken to a new level and networked systems can be realized. Discover the unlimited possibilities of the infinimesh IoT platform and let your musical ideas become reality.
SYNCHRONIZATION VIA THE INFINIMESH IOT PLATFORM
NETWORK MUSICAL PROJECTS
1. A musician offers sessions with participants and sends his midi stream. Participants can listen to the MIDI stream for a fee and jam in their own DAW by syncing to the streaming.
2. Sensor readings can be converted directly into midi controller data (the rule engine deﬁnes the mapping within the midi channel and its note values). The data sample frequency can be synchronized with the midi timecode. Complex quantization can also be realized – a great driver for generative music projects.
3. Automated sysex dumps and updates for standalone workstation / synth / drum boxes / EFX devices / mixer / MIDI gear.
4. Studio environment “health check”: maintenance and functional check of MIDI/network capable devices and racks.
SmartCountr in practice: Because of the versatile plug-and-play combinations with other sensors that can be used, the system is the basis for modern smart city solutions.
Powerplay at the Sparkassen-Eisdom in Halle: With the digital solution from Infinite Devices, the Sparkassen-Eisdom is once again open for public skating according to the 3-G rule.
How can you safely measure visitor flows in pandemic times? We have developed the innovative “SmartCountr” access control system for this purpose, which is already being used successfully by many customers in Germany.
“To date, little attention has been paid by the research community to the applications of internetofthings (IoT) in the field of interactive sonification to the shared control of the sound system by both the user performing gestures local to the system itself and by one or more remote users.”
Pandemic Robot Orchestra: Infinite Devices CEO receives award
As part of the idea competition “Gemeinsam wird es KI” of the Civic Innovation Platform of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, the Pandemic Robot Orchestra (PaRoO) was honored and awarded a prize on February 8, 2022.
The media project was initiated by the musician and CEO of the AIoT company Infinite Devices from Magdeburg, Bruno Kramm, and further developed with the well-known robotics professor Doris Aschenbrenner of the TU Delft / TU Aalen. The team includes renowned AI expert Dr. Tristan Behrens and many volunteer developers and culture enthusiasts. The orchestra invites people to creatively engage with the potentials of artificial intelligence (AI) for our society – also to reduce any threshold fears.
“Of all the technological ideas, artificial intelligence is by far the most significant and offers enormous potential for entrepreneurs and consumers,” said Hubertus Heil during the Civic Innovation Platform idea pitch awards ceremony. The Federal Minister of Labor and Social Affairs emphasized how important it is to support these creative concepts and ideas for public welfare-oriented AI applications.
The Pandemic Robot Orchestra plays on real instruments, while viewers can interactively influence the way the orchestra plays via video stream. The orchestral score is based on motifs from Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” and symbolizes the diversity of Europe and its people in its constant musical transformation through the input of the audience. The “PaRoO” is to be installed again and again in a traveling exhibition at new places in Europe.
An initial kickoff event was held in the fall of 2021. The project is currently being further developed by various teams in a decentralized manner, hopefully to see its world premiere in the winter of 2022. The project receives great support from Musikhaus Thomann and the musical instrument manufacturer GEWA.
