    Hello people!
    I am trying to put together a multi-projector show and am on the hunt for long defunkt Dataton Trax software for mac. Any help with the hunt would be greatly appreciated.

    I incorrectly called it Datatron in the thread, it's actually DATATON (Thanks Ron)

    Wasn't the product called Dataton, without an R in there, and wasn't it from a company in Sweden? I'm remembering it but only just. Where's CB's resident curmudgeon when we need him? Calling @derekleffew
    Toodleoo!

    Hi @PeteW Google https://www.dataton.com/ without any R in it and the company should pop up.
    Toodleoo!

    Thread title edited.

    Being an AVL guy, I always looked down upon Dataton. Until the one time I used it. Then I liked it. Then slide projectors became extinct.:angryoldman:

    I think I may have confused Dataton and Arion. The system I used had little boxes that hung off the backs of the projectors. Thusly,

    One neat thing is they daisy-chained with RJ-11 cords.

    Ha ha, I am trying to make an AVL coyote lead the dance , the dataton Pax is the translator. Hopefully a happy marriage, but ideally I'd like to be able to programme on a computer via Trax software

    You may contact Mike Fahl, who I believe is the creator/programmer of Trax and is now at pixilab.se
    Alternatively, post a thread in the Dataton.com forum as he and others occasionally answer questions there as well. Never owned one, but I recall the Trax software worked with a unit called Smartpax so that may be required for the Trax software to communicate with devices.

    FYI, I still have a Dataton Transpax+ unit and 5-6 units of PAX Dissolve units with connection adapters for Kodak EktaIII projectors. The Transpax+ is the unit to translate the code for AVL/Electrosonics/Arion to Dataton's own code for the PAX Dissolve units to work.

    Hi, this is Alvaro from Spain and I am specialist in show control.
    I found this thread looking for some other info.. I think I can help because years ago I had to translate a couple of shows from Trax to a newer control system.
    You can contact me through a private message so we can discuss exactly what you need.
    Regards
