The GVM1 is a video mixer that will adjust its own video sync signal, to the video sync signal that is being send into it. Most standard video mixers will buffer the image information, and send out each frame separately according to there own video sync signal. Most likely resulting in a 1 frame delay of the video signal.

Bent Festival begins this week in NYC


The 2011 Bent Festival will be held at 319 Scholes in Brooklyn, June 23rd – 25th. Bent Festival is an annual art and music festival celebrating DIY electronics, hardware hacking, and circuit bending. Each year we invite artists from across the country and around the globe to perform music with their home-made or circuit bent instruments, teach workshops to adults and children alike, create beautiful art installations and to generally come together, face to face, and showcase the state of the art in DIY electronics and circuit bending culture.

Featuring the work of some chip artists: Rosa Menkman, Jeff Donaldson, Burnkit 2600, Gijs Gieskes and Loud Objects.
