(1) MiniMad Video and MiniMad Light cannot be installed at the same time: the player will be configured for MiniMad Video in order to play a video mapping or with MiniMad Light in order to play recorded DMX sequences.
(2) Media playback (video) is automatically synced when MiniMad units are connected to the same ethernet network but it can induce a one-frame delay between the different units, therefore the device is not suitable for blending/soft-edge.
