It consists of two parts: Transmitter and Receiver.
Transmitter converts the video (static 64×64 image or 10FPS animation) to the sound, pixel by pixel (progressive scan). So you can listen the sound of your image. But the main function of the Transmitter is to transmit the signal to the receiving devices.
Receiver converts the sound (from microphone or Line-in input) back to the video. You can set the color palette for this video, and record it to animated GIF file.
- file formats supported by Transmitter: JPEG, PNG, GIF (static and animated);
- real-time video export to animated GIF;
- 64 predefined color palettes;
- iOS: iTunes File Sharing;
- iOS: Wi-Fi Export/Import (in the File menu of the Transmitter);
- more functions in the next PixiVisor updates…
Examples of use:
- wireless Lo-Fi video transmission over audio;
- video signal transmission through audio cable; you can then modify that signal by some mixers or audio FX processors;
- sound visualization;
- save any sound to animated GIF;
- hide some images and animation in your music;
- searching for hidden messages in the ambient noise; EVP;
- something else; reveal it first!

While And One will probably soon announce its departure from SPV to launch the next material on the band’s own label, it also found the time to announce a brand new video: “Aigua”, which is Catalan for ‘water’. The video was directed by Adolf Steinhimmel.
The track does not feature And One’s Steve Naghavi but just guest singer Vivi on vocals. Nice song, nice video.
