MIDI Visual Control is an internationally-used recommended practice that was added
to the MIDI specification so that visual expression could be linked with musical performance.
Video equipment that is compatible with MIDI Visual Control can be connected to electronic
musical instruments via MIDI in order to control video equipment in tandem with a performance.

We understand how to interface musical instruments for LED light and video system control.
Bon Vie Interactive developments interactive based MIDI and DMX-512 systems
