The Memory Palace is a 32-bit frame store digital video effects processor. Invoking the lineage of computer video instruments from the 1980s and 1990s, the Orion Series Memory Palace introduces digital video transformations and frame buffer memory to the LZX video synthesis landscape.

An HSV proc amp, multi-mode soft key generator, variable frame delay, 2D transformation engine and flexible compositing pathways provide a workflow designed for a wide range of video feedback techniques. The perfect post-processor for your analog textures.

Dedicated FPGA blocks provide hardware acceleration for powerful real time video processing; it's not just just a computer hiding behind the control panel. Flexible video outputs include 1V YRGB, Composite, S-Video, and DVI-D connections.

Among its performance focused controls, Memory Palace is equipped with 13 voltage controlled parameters with CV input attenuators and high quality faders for accurate positioning and smooth transitions. In addition to this, 13 broadcast-style illuminated pushbutton controls for satisfying button mashing.

In frame buffer feedback mode, spatial effects are placed in the feedback path between the keyer and frame buffer memory. The video feed is mapped and multiplied across space and time into endless universes of recursive transformation.

Memory Palace's painting mode allows you to draw onto the digital memory canvas using external shapes, patterns or even video sources as your paintbrush. Designed for use with the LZX Escher Sketch stylus pad controller or any voltage control source that generates XY voltages.

The unit's spatial processor is modeled after classic broadcast Digital Video Effects (DVE) processors from the 1980's and 1990's. The spatial processor uses digital frame memory to reinterpret the input image, adjusting its positioning, size, aspect ratio, and rotation angle in a nonlinear fashion.

The soft keyer allows smooth linear transitions from the incoming video and the image stored in the internal video frame buffer. It may source its key mask from luma and chroma keying modes, or may also be used as an alpha channel processor for external ramp gradients and keys.

Its color processor can function as a video proc-amp or psychedelic colorizer. When used in feedback mode, it serves as a way to modify each repeat of the buffer image incrementally, creating seamless gradients across time.
