DEADLINE: 1 SEPT 2020 | 30 days Residence, Castelló (Spain).

European open call for audiovisual projects of art, science, technology and video games related to the climate emergency.

The Climate & Video Game artist in residence is part of the Living Lab Planeta Debug research project activities.

The purpose of this call is to grant two residency and production scholarships to develop an art project. The project will encompass science, technology, video games and ecology in order to address the climate emergency.

The Universitat Jaume I in Castello (Spain) will support two original projects in a one month residency where the audiovisual artists will get scientific assistance from the university research labs.

The unprecedented rate of global warming is melting the polar ice caps, raising sea levels and undermining food and water security for many of the world’s people.

The response to this situation is being too slow for what is probably the greatest challenge that the human species has ever had to face. In this global climate emergency situation it is necessary to raise awareness and act collectively to find solutions that can at least slow down the current climate change to avoid the foreseeable dystopian future that lies ahead.

In this context, this call raises the need to think collectively from art, science, technology, video games and ecology to raise awareness and articulate responses to climate change.

Through the composition of knowledge and interdisciplinary collaboration, this call proposes to use the capacity of contemporary art and the practices of visualization as a vehicle to raise awareness and propose responses that address the challenge of climate change and global sustainability.

The financial sum for each of the two artist residencies in UJI laboratories has a total budget of 3,830 euros divided as per the following installments:

– €1500 in fees, to which the applicable taxes will be applied.

– €1250 for production of the project selected subject to approval of its budget.

– €1080 for travel expenses.

From July 1, 2020, the call for artist residencies of the Planeta Debug Project is officially opened. Check the open call guidelines.

NDI Virtual Input for Mac works with Zoom but not with Skype

Par : mikaelb
Thanks so much for the free tools for the Mac and iPhone!

I am using NDIHXCamera on my iPhone and NDI Virtual Input 1.0 on my Mac (OS v10.15.5). Zoom can see and use my iPhone as a camera and microphone, but Skype (v8.62.0.85) cannot see the camera. It can only see the microphone. FaceTime can also only see the microphone and not the camera.

I've also installed NewTekNDIHXDriverForMac.pkg.

Any help would be appreciated!

NDI multicast or unicast

Par : abo
Having trouble with NDI unstability issues I am suspecting the network switch.
Sometimes some NDI sources disappear, sometimes the NDI video disappear from NDI Studio Monitor.
Most probably it is a multicast handling problem but I am not sure.
I know that NDI source auto discovery uses multicast UDP. This may explain that sometimes some source disappear.
But for video data flow ???
I am not a network expert nor a NDI expert.
Is there a way to know the type of NDI traffic used for a given source (multicast/unicast/..., UDP/TCP) ?
NDI analysis tool does not provide such information.
Is there a way to enforce the type of NDI traffic ? I am using NDI HX Camera and OBS NDI plugin.
All sources and consumers are connected to the same subnet. Is it becessary to configure something wit NDI Acess Manager ?

Many thanks for your help.

Confine NDI to a designated NIC

Par : MajoMedia
At this moment, i'm a bit disappointed.

Already in 2017 people pointed out that the way NDI taking every NIC in the system causes problems in certain setups.
Newtek answered this was understood and were working on this, even though it wouldn't be as easy as it seems.
I did speak with Kane at IBC about it and he told me it was on the todo list.

Now we are 3 years ahead from that point, and I still cannot use NDI in my setup, because this issue is still actual.

Problems using NDI on same network as dante:

A 2017 thread on this, the solution there is not working for me, as blocking bonjour would also block Dante:

So please, make me happy again by giving this some more priority.

Tatsuru Arai

Par : Marco Savo

The spectrum of audiovisual artists is as broad as the tools and different languages available.

Each artist explores a particular audiovisual area. The sum of all their artwork is what defines audiovisual culture.

Of course the definition is fluid and ever-changing due to the technological evolution and the constant offspring of new artistic languages.

Tatsuru Arai investigation embraces one of the most important aspect of the audiovisual culture: the synesthesia, the condition under which two or more senses are perceived simultaneously. In his specific case by visualizing the geometric structure that rigs the musical composition.

Tatsuru Arai - Audiovisual artist

One of the first artists to investigate the relations between music and imagery was Kandinski. He explored how different shapes and colours relate to each other by communicating different movements to the viewer. Same as different notes, rhythm and music patterns relate to our inner soul, triggering different emotional movements.

The Japanese artist (currently living in Berlin) features an interesting background of music composition, computer programming and multimedia art. Arai’s generative art is highly complex and goes beyond the audiovisual genre. It takes on a profound reflection around the universe and its structure based on vibrations, as advocated by the theoretical framework of the string theory.

His series “Principle of Hyper Serial Music” starts a direct dialogue with the Serialism movement developed by René Leibowitz and Pierre Boulez. The series adds “innovation” to the three main points of the serial music: “structural”, “complex” and “noisy”. Arai achieves this by incorporating AI within the musical composition and the visualization of its structure.

The result is an audiovisual duet between human and machine with the two elements constantly learning from each other in his ever-evolving investigation. Ultimately, Tatsuru uses the sound and its visualization as a key to make experience of the nature of the universe, even if just a small part of it.

Virtual Input/Scan Converter Causing Odd Monitor Behavior (Windows 10)

Par : Brotuulaan
I just swapped out our broadcast computer at my church for the new one we ordered, and now there's some odd behavior going on.

The streaming computer has OBS running along with Virtual Input so we can import the lyrics from our other computer, which has Scan Converter running. This is the same setup that we had on our old computer, but no for whatever reason, any time there's an NDI connection change on our streaming computer, the lyric monitor on the OTHER computer is affected.

When this status changes, the monitor in question zooms to something like the top-left 1/3 of the original image. Sometimes it stays that way and sometimes it fixes itself after a few seconds. Other times it requires me clicking around some on that computer to which it belongs. I'm unsure how resolution may be tied to zoom in the process, but the computer seems to show that the resolution does not change. I'm not sure whether Windows updates the resolution listing immediately or if it only updates upon refreshing the settings window.

Sometimes instead of zooming in, the screen just flashes and stays at the same zoom level.

This behavior has popped up in various situations but is now being inconsistent thus hard to list. Initially, it happened when opening/closing OBS while VI is running, sometimes (but not always) when changing scene collections in OBS between collections which do not both have VI set as a source, and when at least closing VI while OBS was running (possibly starting as well, but I'm not sure now that it's inconsistent).

Any thoughts as to why this is happening and how I might stop it? The only thing I can think of is that Scan Converter is doing something funky with the display driver on the host computer, but I don't know enough about display drivers or NDI to say for sure. We're expecting our other computer to come in any day now, so I'll be swapping that computer out as well. I very much hope this inconsistent behavior doesn't become consistent behavior with the new pairing.

PATCHLAB FESTIVAL: Krakow, 23-25 October 2020

Par : Marco Savo

Patchlab Digital Art Festival is an annual audiovisual event showcasing digital art created with the latest technologies and new media.

The theme of the 2020 edition is CONNECTED. It explores the implications of the digital revolution we are undergoing in our lives due to the pandemic. The head-spinning rise of the internet based communication during the last months is still quite hard to grasp.

The internet was created originally as an effective and immediate form of communication. With the evolution of social media platforms, the world wide web is now a primary channel to express our emotions.

Audiovisual artists can help us understand the fast-changing environment we live in by visualizing the Nietzsche’s unsaid. Anything that is too complex for a total comprehension can be grasped by living the artistic experience.

Immersive installations, interactive artwork and live performance communicate complex statements through sensorial experience, giving us the chance to digest information slowly, at our own pace. Generative art as an antidote to the overwhelming data dump we experience everyday.

Patchlab festival - Audiovisual event
Matteo Zamagni, Nature Abstraction

Due to the uncertainty of in-person attendance, the organizers are planning the audiovisual event through virtual platforms. It will be therefore accessible to a wider audience through the experimental use of new technologies.

Patchlab will present art projects online and via AR (augmented reality). There will be experimental computer animations presented in the virtual cinema, remotely accessible workshops and also a dystopian multi-person computer game allowing the exploration of a post-apocalyptic New York. There will also be AV NIGHT, during which we will see unique audiovisual projects in 360° format.

OPEN CALL – DEADLINE: 30th of July 2020

All audiovisual artists are invited to submit their project proposals for this year’s program to be implemented online in an unexpected way.

Proposals can only be submitted via the online form.

Onomatopoeia Club

Audiovisual art doesn’t just have to be about performing, in fact, this year in light of the global pandemic, we’ve begun to see progressively more innovative and creative ways of the culture of sound and image begin to trickle into new realms and industries.

An AV Webzine

Presenting Onomatopoeia Club. As audiovisual culture vultures, way back in 2011, we saw a need to document, curate and to explore audiovisual culture as a whole as we saw it begin to unravel into its very own discipline.

Onomatopoeia Club have done something much in the same vain. They’ve created an online creative space where sound and visual artists can come together to collaborate on a short 30 second project. The project is a collaboration between Coda to Coda and Rosie Lee.

The most curious thing about this from a visual artist’s point of view is the fact that they have turned traditional VJ and music video culture on its head – rather than the visual artist creating content based on sound, they’ve taken a more soundtrack approach to the project.

How the artist collaboration works

The visual artist creates a 10 second loop, which the Onomatopoeia team turn into 30 seconds and THEN pass them on to a sound artist for the mini projects to be completed. The result? A quarterly webzine of 10-15 audiovisual collaborations and a lot of fun and inspiration.

They’e just launched their first edition (6th July) with a great mix of 12 artists’ collaborations. It’s really curious way to discover new visual and sound artists, and warning, it’s quite addictive. Maybe it’s just me, but I certainly can see and hear the difference of the sound being created after the visual… can you?

Top 3 Audiovisual Collaborations

Here are my faves from this month’s edition:

Cumi Na Gatandu: By Emily Evans (Visuals) & Auclair (Sounds)

This Place: By Catherine Repko (Visuals) & Luisa Gerstein (Sounds)

I cannot fly but I will not hit the floor: by Sophie Clements (Visuals) & Suitman Jungle (Sounds)

Check out the first edition and let us know your thoughts, and get in touch with them if you’d like to participate and have some fun, whilst meeting new artists!

NDI Central Management for Private Content Live Streaming Online

Par : MylesOSS
We have successfully managed to get NDI working on Zoom by sending the output from an offline Avid Media Composer system to a streaming pc running Zoom. Great solution for people wanting to preview their content during a meeting. :) Audio isn't so great though, even with 'Original Sound' active, it still sounds kind of underwater, as if Zoom is up to some sort of signal processing we have no control of.

Moving forward I would like to achieve the following:

- Centralize all NDI Outputs to a single live streaming device
- Host multiple live streams simultaneously from the streaming device
- Ability to view the live streams within a web browser from anywhere

I'd be interested to hear about free, low cost and also the premium solutions that can handle this. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

VJ Suave

Par : Marco Savo

Ceci Soloaga and Ygor Marotta are a duo of audiovisual artists based in São Paulo, Brazil.

VJ Suave bring something colorfully unique to the international panorama of audiovisual art. They have been combining street art and projection mapping since 2009.

Thanks to their innovative audiovisual approach, they are able to travel around the city with portable projectors and draw with lights on the streets, buildings and landscapes. In real time. Improvising. Like a graffiti writer would do.

VJ Suave - Audiovisual artist

Audiovisual and street art are in my opinion the true forms of contemporary art, as they reduce the distance between the art world and the people. They speak a more familiar language than any other art forms. They are anti-elitist by nature, not as a result of a specific political statement.

Vj Suave audiovisual live stories are called “Suaveciclos”. They make use of Tagtool, an app for tablet allowing drawings in real time.

These itinerant projection mappings are colorful, imaginative and highly engaging. Kids absolutely love them as they perceive immediately the drawings are made specifically for them to play with.

VJ Suave - Audiovisual artists
VJ Suave create fantasy friendly characters on the go that take on the streets, riding on ethereal light beams. As they come they disappear. Only to then reappear somewhere else. Constantly playing catching up.

It’s very hard not being immediately charmed by their delicately funny audiovisual storytelling. And there is no reason to resist! Their communication with the audience is honest, inspiring and most importantly inclusive: none is left out in this projection mapping extravaganza.

More recently the audiovisual artists have been taken a step further allowing the viewers to step into their visionary world by using VR.

In their enchanted forest (“Floresta Encantada”) the explorers are invited to build relationships with the native inhabitants of the forest: indigenous and animals. A very powerful example of how virtual reality can be used to get us closer to our ancestors and the natural world rather than alienating us.

The viewer is invited to find their own inner harmony with the sounds and visual elements of the forest in order to become unified with the surrounding environment. The result is an unique experience with plenty of food for thoughts to be snacked upon.

As we often advocate the meaningfulness of the artistic experience depends on the artist intent more than on the tool that is being used.

Codec vidéo H.266/VVC officialisé par Fraunhofer


L’institut Fraunhofer en partenariat avec Sony, Microsoft, Intel, Qualcom, Ericson, Huawei, ont travaillé 3 ans sur la nouvelle norme du codec vidéo H.266/VVC (Versatile Video Coding) capable de diviser par 2 le poids d’une vidéo en gardant un bon rapport qualité/poids.

Une réduction de taille face au H.265/HEVC avec un algorithme de compression améliorée, adaptée au format panoramique, à la HDR, au 360°, à la 4K et 8K allant jusqu’aux 16K et un taux de rafraîchissement variable jusqu’à 120 Hz.

Le H.266/VVC fait partie de cette nouvelle génération de codec vidéo tout comme le codec AV1 qui à la différence du H.266/VVC est libre de droits. Maintenant il faut attendre l’automne prochain pour la première version du codec et le déploiement pour les éditeurs de logiciels et les fabricants de puces.

Steve Gerges

Par : Marco Savo

Steve Gerges has developed an impressive portfolio of commercial projects with top-tier brands, delivering powerful audiovisual storytelling across multiple formats and media.

Nevertheless, we can only appreciate his true artistic self through his mesmerizing audiovisual projects, both conceptually profound and technically advanced.

Many audiovisual artists have to balance their design gigs with their artistic work. When companies hire an artist (rather than a mere designer) they gain an unique creative input empowering the whole marketing campaign. But the actual artistic expression is restricted by the brand identity.

When artists are free to work on the concept as they are on the technical implementation, they deliver a much more powerful and meaningful experience to the viewer.

Steve Gerges began to take an interest in Digital Art in 2000 when he created Visual-Delight, the first collective of VJ’s (visual-jockeys) in Luxembourg. This project allowed him to take his first steps in this innovative art form for that time.

Following a trip to Montreal to the Elektra Festival in 2012, he created his first interactive digital artwork entitled LAN 1.0 at the Carré Rotondes in 2014. Here a few projects we felt best showcased his main features as an audiovisual artist.


ONE is a generative art sculpture that develops in real time. The audiovisual totem grows and evolves while progressively revealing its organic essence to the viewer.

One tells us the story of the creation of the universe, from the big bang, to energy flows, creation of planets and humankind.

Steve Gerges


We love this amazing kinetic sculpture that exploits the use of machine programming. Light is the main course of this audiovisual feast. An ethereal force that contours the surrounding space in a beautiful ephemeral moment.


This is an immersive and impressive projection mapping representing the creation of the universe, a recurring them in Steve Gerges work. The audiovisual storytelling features abstract patterns slowly turning into figurative elements.

The viewers is invited to reflect upon the strive of mankind to understand and explore the unattainable complexity of the universe.

There is so much more to explore about Steve Gerges. We strongly invite you to dive deeper into his audiovisual world.

Avid Media Composer to Streaming PC to Zoom

Par : MylesOSS
Hi All,

I am very new to NDI, and so far cannot see a way to get the audio from Avid Media Composer routed into Zoom via a streaming PC. On the editing PC, I have the HW/SW button on the avid timeline broadcasting over OpenIO_NDI, and the streaming PC receives A/V through NDI Studio Monitor without issue. However, Virtual Input seems to only allow the video to go out onto zoom. Is it possible for Virtual Input to also do the same for the audio? Choosing to run 'Audio Only' in Studio Monitor and then sharing the audio in Zoom results in out of sync issues.

The only options I have within Virtual Input are:
Audio Only
NVIDIA Quadro K2200 1

username@hostname.AVID is what i use to get Studio Monitor working perfectly on the streaming PC, but i simply cannot get the both video and audio out onto Zoom via Virtual Input. I can only get video only. Am I missing something?

Big thanks to all who are involved in what is clearly a brilliant piece of software.

ARS ELECTRONICA: 9 -13 September 2020, Linz

Par : Marco Savo

Ars Electronica is THE new media arts festival: a core reference for audiovisual events and artists worldwide.

The festival and its audiovisual artists embrace new technology as a tool for artistic expression rather than the main factor of spectacularization.

This critical approach unlock the infinite creative possibilities within new technologies rather than fetishize them, as we have seen happening a lot with projection mapping and more recently with virtual reality.

ars electronica -audiovisual event

The festival was founded in 1979 by cyberneticist/physicist Herbert W. Franke, electronic musician Hubert Bognermayr, music producer Ulli A. Rützel and Hannes Leopoldseder. It has come a very long way since then but it has always kept its main focus on the intersection of art, technology and society.

One of the most appealing elements of the festival is The Prix Ars Electronica: the most prestigious prize in new media arts, with hefty prizes up to 10.000€. Every year the Golden Nica is awarded to the ground-breaking fruits of artistic experimentation from audiovisual artists worldwide.

Prix Ars Electronica - Audiovisual event - open call

Ars Electronica features a wide variety of activities every year: Symposia, exhibitions, performances, concerts and interventions spanning a broad arc from speculative futuristic scenarios to analytical considerations, from provocative actionism to philosophical debate.

Combining amazing artworks with fruitful conversations is the perfect recipe to create a meaningful experience that constantly scans the new media landscape to find the most inspiring projects. The projects are not simply chosen based on their technical realization but most importantly because the social and artistic innovation they incorporate.

The result of this consistent endeavour is the creation of a loyal community of audiovisual artists, researchers and visitors from all over the world that every year reunites in Linz to inspire and get inspired.

 deep space live - fata morgana - audiovisual artists
Deep Space LIVE – Fata Morgana

Since its inception, the festival has been dedicated to develop new themes for each edition and the organizers are also constantly on the lookout for interesting new venues.

Indeed, the ongoing effort to break out of the narrow confines of conventional conference rooms and artistic spaces, and to stage cultural and scientific encounters in the public sphere has become something of an Ars Electronica trademark.

Stay tuned: Ars Electronica 2020 theme will be released soon!

NDI Scan Converter with WIrecast Not seeing extended desktop

Par : tjh0422
I am using Scan Converter to send PPT graphics from my MAC laptop in to Wirecast running on my desktop machine. The connection does get made, but instead of seeing the full screen PPT graphic (which should be going to my extended desktop as I am running in Presenter View) I am seeing the primary screen. I have chosen Powerpoint in the NDI settings as that's what I want the Scan Converter to see, right?

Thank you.

Studio Monitor - Black Video from Multicast Streams (Win10)

Par : muzicman82
I posted this on the NDI Facebook Group, so if you've seen this already, I apologize.

Brand new clean Win10 install (it's an Intel NUC8). All drivers up to date.

With NDI Tools installed (downloaded today, so 4.5), I get just a black screen for either of two multicast streams on this network... but they work fine on another system on the same switch (Netgear M4300).

In Wireshark, I can see the IGMP membership reports and leave messages, and all of the UDP packets the same as on the working system. I can also see the querier messages.

Win10 firewall is all disabled.

Just for kicks, the multicast prefixes are different for two BirdDog P200 cameras.

I can get NDI Test Patters from working computer over to the NUC, but that isn't multicast. I can also get Test patterns from the NUC to the working PC... also not multicast.

The NUC does not have any other network connections active... Bluetooth and WiFi are disabled. The Ethernet connection is set to a Private Network. I disabled EEE and low power modes on the driver.

It doesn't matter if I close Studio Monitor on the working system.

The IGMP snooping table for the Netgear M4300 switch shows the same things for both clients.

BirdDog Multiview shows the streams perfectly fine! If I run Studio Monitor at the same time, I don't get extra membership reports in Wireshark, and closing one of them doesn't give a leave group message.

I also installed OBS with the NDI plugin. The multicast streams show up there just fine as well.

As another exercise, I set a BirdDog decoder to decode one of the multicast streams, and hooked the HDMI output to the HDMI input on a BirdDog encoder set to transmit multicast. That stream opens just fine on the working PC but not the other. But, the decode/encode cycle tells me multicast is working OK.

Unicast streams open in Studio Monitor just fine.

I also set up a 3rd PC today and that one also just gives black screen. What am I missing here?

DEADLINE: 15/07/2020

We love to discover and share juicy opportunities for audiovisual artists such as this open call promoted by Photon Foundation in Krakow.

Their hybrid solution is an effective response to the uncertainty of our current situation and a great compromise. We are sure audiovisual artists worldwide will massively appreciate their effort!

Photon Foundation is pulling off a great home edition this year. The organizers of Patchlab Festival are giving the chance to three selected artists to create a 360 second long rendered audiovisual projects, specifically designed for the projection system at the Gallery 360°.

The audiovisual installation will be recorded and publicly presented online as the culmination of the residence. Later on, when audiovisual events will kick back on the projects will be actually presented in the 360° Gallery with participation of the audience.

Open call for audiovisual artists

The 360° Gallery features a mind-boggling set up with 10 projectors displaying images with 16910×1080 pixels resolution. That opens up immense creative opportunities to generate a fully immersive environment.

During the 31-day #home edition residence, between 15/09/2020 – 18/10/2020, the selected audiovisual artists (or artistic groups) are going to work in their home or studio on their own audiovisual project.

The selected artists will have remote contact with the organizational and technical team and co-residents, as well as the possibility of conducting 2 remote attempts to display the work on the projection system in the 360° Gallery in order to check the accuracy and allow for possible corrections.

The following criteria will be taken into account in the selection of the winning projects:

  • artistic values ​​of the concept (e.g. originality, ingenuity)
  • consistency and accuracy in preparing the project concept
  • project feasibility according to the technical specification of the 360​​° Gallery projection system
  • artistic portfolio

I can see the computer in the TC input menu but no video just black. I'm lost on why I can't see the video but I can see the computer name. Thank you in advance.


Glastonbury, VJ showcase and a virtual reality event. Did I get your attention yet?

That’s right, in a moment where the ‘new normal’ is beginning to establish new ways of working in the world of audiovisual events, Lost Horizon Festival presents us with some of the world’s first responses to Corona Virus brought to us via the Gas Tower.

The team behind Glastonbury’s Shangri-La presents Lost Horizon festival, with 360º immersive visual shows from a healthy list of audiovisual artists that will make you forget we were in the middle of a pandemic, just like Woodstock (hip-hip-hooray!)

With the branding slightly reminiscent of a Madonna track ‘A REAL FESTIVAL, IN A VIRTUAL WORLD’ we are in for a treat, not to mention a fantastic list of VJing sumptuousness to explore and discover!

From the likes of Bertie Sampson, blinkinLAB, Bob Jaroc, DDL, Delta Process, Dr and Quinch, Enjoy Kaos, Fade In Fade Out, Greenaway & Greenaway, Joëlle, Koolik, L’Aubaine (check out the our interview with her) Lazershaft, Lazersonic, LEDS Akimbo, Limbic Cinema, Matt Lee Vs The Positronic Man, More Eyes, Primary Visual Cortex, Rebel Overlay, REM Visuals, WeAreMidnight.

Audiovisual artists

Yes, that’s a lot of new, fresh audiovisual artists coming soon on Audiovisual City, with great thanks to Creative Giants, for curating this mind blowing line-up, promising us a fully immersive digital art and music event.

“Taking the Gas Tower from the fields of the festival world into a groundbreaking new reality, Creative Giants are excited to be joining the team Shangri-La on their voyage of discovery to Lost Horizon, which redefines what a festival can be, creating ways for people to come together and experience music and art in a way we never would have previously imagined.”

Simon Vaughan, Creative Giants

A virtual audiovisual event

What’s more, is nothing sells a virtual festival like the mouthwateringly designed website by Manchester studio, Instruct Studio. If this website were food, I’ve already been eating with my eyes and gotten pretty fat.

“We are thrilled to showcase some of the world’s leading VJs and visual artists in this way. The physical structure of The Gas Tower has been recreated in exact detail in virtual reality, allowing viewers to look around in full 360 degrees to fully immerse themselves in beautiful visuals. We are proud to be leading the way into the digital domain, presenting ground-breaking artists with innovative and mind blowing visuals as part of this ambitious new form of live experience.”

Pete Thornton, More Eyes

Rebel Overlay

Light based minimalistic blade-runner-esque visuals that will make you feel retro futuristic, with everything from lasers to LED totems and 3D structures in the portfolio bag, all with a dash of Resolume control.


No messing about, this studio based in London have done whopping great visual productions for the likes of Coachella, Boomtown and The Human League (for those of you who are old enough to know who they are).

Enjoy the Kaos

Interesting looking 3D abstract visuals that look like candy cane, sweet enough to hang off your Christmas tree. If you’re into 3D animation, mapping, photogrammetry, and art in general then Enjoy the Kaos should definitely be an audiovisual show on your AV hit-list.


Immersive tour visuals for Adam Beyer, and for Booka Shade, what’s not to inspire any keen audiovisual festival goer? Primarily focused on content creation, blinkinLAB is a motion graphics design studio based in London.

Their portfolio of work includes tour visual content creation, motion graphic design, music video, tv commercials, idents and title sequences, as well as live audiovisual performance, vj-ing and projection mapping installations.

Premiere Pro NDI vs Scan Converter


1) I have been using the Adobe Premiere Pro NDI output and it works well except of the audio portion in my situation. I may be doing something wrong, but it seems that I need to make a choice of sending the audio to the NDI stream or sending it to my studio monitors. Below are the two choices I have:

Premiere Pro Audio Hardware Preferences
Audio Output Mapping > Adobe Desktop Audio > Focusrite Audio Interface > Studio Monitors
Audio Output Mapping > NDI Output > NDI Stream

Could someone clarify if there is a way to output to both locations simultaneously? I am on the MAC platform and I would prefer not to have you use another virtual mixing app like Voicemeter or Soundflower etc.

2) Related to #1, would it be better to just use NDI Scan Converter as that seems to solve the audio issue from #1. What am I losing by going this route? I'm guessing any alpha channel information, but that is not needed in my scenario.

Thanks in advance

The 3 Finalists of the competition, who will be selected by audience and the festival curators, will each receive a prize.

The winner of the contest will receive the Grand prize of 1500€. The second and third place will receive 1000€ and 500€ respectively.

NDI and mix minus

Par : photogguy
I have a question. We've been doing Zoom meetings, which I then live stream to the world.

Today, I need to play videos, and the Zoom host wants to talk during the video (which has audio).

Is there a way to feed mix minus audio into the Zoom meeting? I know I can send audio, just looking for a way to send mix minus audio.


VirtualDub2, le retour


Le retour du retour d’une antiquité des outils vidéo indispensables, le susnommé VirtualDub (2004). Plus mise à jour depuis des années, il revient en grande forme depuis 2 ans dans les bacs à outils vidéo.

Encodeur vidéo pour l’image live


Dans la jungle des codecs vidéo, 2 codecs sortent du lot pour la vidéo live.

Le Codec propriétaire gratuit de Resolume, le DXV possède son propre encoder avec Resolume Alley qui fait à la fois office de viewer et d’encoder. Resolume Alley propose 4 formats d’encodage, le DXV Normal Quality, No Alpha ; DXV Normal Quality, With Alpha ; DXV High Quality, No Alpha et le DXV High Quality, With Alpha. Il permet aussi la création d’une file d’attente pour un traitement par lot, a faire travailler la nuit quand on a 2 pétaoctets de vidéos, la conversion d’une suite d’images, une mise à l’échelle en remplissage, ajustement ou étirement. Alley permet de convertir l’audio en PCM linéaire. Le codec DXV est encapsulé dans un MOV et n’a pas besoin de Quicktime pour coder les fichiers DXV dans un conteneur .mov. Encodage sur GPU.

Applications vidéo intégrant le DXV : Resolume

Le codec open source HAP quant à lui utilisera son encoder maison le AVF Batch Encoder par les créateurs du codec HAP, Vidvox. C’est un outil de transcodage simple, il gère le traitement par lot

AVF Batch Exporter

IL y a quatre versions différentes du HAP:

le HAP, HAP Alpha, HAP Q et le HAP Q Alpha. Ce convertisseur fonctionne exclusivement sur mac. Le codec HAP est encapsulé dans un MOV, encodage sur GPU.

AVF Batch Exporter

Jokyo HAP Encoder est un nouveau dans la place des transcodeurs vidéo, il apporte une optimisation de l’encodage au format HAP et un temps de rendu raisonnable surtout en haute définition avec un rapport de qualité/vitesse optimisé. Le plugin pour After Effects compatible Win/Mac est à 75€, le plugin pour Media Encoder et Premiere Pro est à 75€ et pour finir le bundle comprenant les 2 plugs, Jokyo HAP Ae Encoder avec le Jokyo HAP Me Encoder est à 99€.

Jokyo HAP Encoder

AfterCodecs est une solution payante (89€) pour encoder vos vidéos directement dans After Effects, en installant ce plug vous installez aussi certains codecs manquant comme le H.264, H.265, les 4 codecs HAP, tention quand même, le ProRes 4444 avec couche alpha n’est pas le codec officiel en version light.


Applications vidéo intégrant le HAP en natif : CoGe, Isadora, GrandVJ, MadMapper, Millumin, Mitti, MixEmergency, ModuloPi, Notch, Qlab, Smode, TouchDesigner, VDMX, VVVV, Pandoras Box, Disguise, Watchout, grandMA2, Green Hippo, OpenFrameworks, Unity3D, Unreal Engine et VUO.

Un encodeur exotique pour du HAP ou du DXV, faite signe.
