Review: Rane’s new Twelve MKII & Seventy-Two MKII

Par : DJ Soo

When DJ TechTools hit me up to do a review of the new Twelve MKIIs I was stoked, but not entirely surprised. Anybody following Rane and/or watching DJ Jazzy Jeff’s livestream knew this update was coming, thanks to Jeff sporting a pair of unreleased Twelve MKIIs on his livestream since April. But when I learned I would […]

Cosmic Lab

Par : Marco Savo

Cosmic Lab is a multimedia studio formed by audiovisual artists and creators based in Osaka, Japan.

They combine art and technology to develop powerfully immersive audiovisual experiences.

We discovered this amazing collective thanks to ADAF 2020 and we fell in love straight away.

Cosmic Lab possibly represent the archetype of the audiovisual artist, rooted in the art world and the underground clubbing scene.

As many Japanese new media artists they are not afraid of experimenting and mixing up techniques and styles. As far is it’s punchy, alluring and visually stunning they will use it in their performances.

From immersive VJ sets to operatic projection mapping, from AV live graffiti to cutting-edge interactive installations. Cosmic Lab always achieves to captivate the audience and mind-blow even the more AV experts.

Here our top picks from their impressive portfolio of audiovisual projects:

Live Paint Showcase: “Magnetic”

Cosmic Lab - Audiovisual artists

As we said: no fear of experimenting. Here we see a very interesting fusion between hip hop and audiovisual culture.

At the opening event of MAGNET by SHIBUYA 109 “ShibuGekiSai”, Cosmic Lab and Doppel collaborated on a performance combining live painting and video projection.

The 3D video cubes are animated in motion graphics by the audiovisual artists guiding the graffiti artists on the patterns they will fill with their spray cans.

The DJ spins tunes throughout the performance linking graffiti and projection through the overall hip hop groove.

Buddhist Chant and Light Performance

An audiovisual feast and a once-in-a-lifetime experience to celebrate the Koyasan’s 1200th anniversary (The center of Shingon Buddhism).

We see something truly remarkable and unique: a fusion among the vibrating tones of the Buddhist chant, Japanese drums and an elaborate projection mapping.

Under the musical inputs and the AV latest technologies the great Pagoda comes alive. The result is spectacular, mesmerizing and sumptuous to honor the ancient tradition of Japanese Buddhism.

QUASAR

Here Cosmic Lab went a few steps ahead by reinventing the way of making AV live performances through a new tool called QUASAR.

It loosely reminded us of the Reactable Machine, developed in Barcelona in 2003 to make music through physical interaction.

In this next-generation AV instrument, each musical measure is not interpreted in a linear fashion, but as an endless loop.

Also the tangible interface gives a physical structure to the AV content making possible to build rhythm and layers in all new intuitive physical way. Impressive!

Rename NDI Tools downloadables

Par : simond83
Please can you rename the downloads, so they're more clear as to what they are. I see there's a recent point update. I've now downloaded "NDI 4 Tools.exe". It would be better to have NDI_Tools_4.5.1_windows.exe.

Thanks :)

Also, can you add a 'download only' link so that we don't have to fill out the form all the time....thanks!

Bug in NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud prevents video playback in Premiere

Par : PaulSiegel
Hello -

I recently installed the NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud plugin on my OSX machine. The ability to import MOV files recorded by the NDI Monitor tool with timecode data felt extremely promising. However, I discovered the plugin also created a terrible bug in Adobe Premiere. Once installed, the ability to play back video in Premiere consistently breaks.

Pressing the play button in either the source monitor or the program monitor cause the audio to play back correctly, but the video shows nothing and the playhead on the timeline does not advance. I'm able to scrub the playhead on the timeline and see frames of video by moving it around, but it remains stuck at that position when pressing play. The problem occurs in all Premiere projects, regardless of whether they include an imported MOV file from NDI Monitor or not.

I attempted many fixes to this - clearing my cache, deleting Premiere preferences, rebooting -- none of this solved the problem. I then confirmed this was due to the plugin by simply removing this file from my system:

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/NDI_Transmit_AdobeCC.bundle

Removing this file immediately resolved the problem. Putting it back caused the problem to reoccur. I'd love to have the timecode data in my Premiere projects, but the bug that comes along with it makes Premiere unusable, which is a terrible shame.

Anyway, I just wanted to report the bug. I hope you're able to fix it. If you need any additional information I'd be happy to provide it. Here's some basic info about my system:

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
OSX: 10.15.6
Processor: 2.9 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Graphics: Radeon Pro 460 4 GB, Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB
Adobe Premiere Pro: Version 14.3.1 (Build 45)

Frame rate issues in unreal engine SDK

Par : djevo2
I have noticed that with unreal 4.25 and the compatible NDI sdk I am getting significant frame drops on both inputs and outputs. No matter what framerates I lock NDI and the project to it seems like I am dropping every other frame on the NDI output and inputs. If i compare the main NDI output and the preview in the editor the motion in the editor is smooth wheras the NDI output exhibits this problem. Furthermore, if I create a standalone build of my project the preview as well as the NDI output suffers from this problem. I have attempted running at 1080o and 720p with the exact same result. If I run the same standalone version with no ndi input it runs perfectly fine in the preview window. I am running a 2070 super with an i7 and 16gb ram. This is seemingly isolated to the ndi sdk for 4.25.

eufy Security 2K, la caméra HomeKit pas cher

eufy Security, une filiale d’Anker (société chinoise. assez connue pour ses accessoires avec un bon rapport qualité/prix) propose depuis une caméra HomeKit Secure Video pas très onéreuse. Cette caméra d’intérieur vaut seulement 40 € sur Amazon, ce qui est significativement moins que les modèles concurrents.

La concurrence, en dehors des caméras uniquement HomeKit (j’ai des Omna – D-Link – et une Presence de chez Netatmo), vient de chez Eve (anciennement Elgato) avec un modèle à 150 €, de chez Logitech avec la Circle View (180 €) ou le modèle Netatmo pour l’intérieur (Welcome, vendue 200 €). En clair, chez les grandes marques, une caméra HomeKit Secure Video vaut entre 4 et 5 fois plus que le modèle eufy. A raison ? Pas vraiment, nous allons le voir.

La caméra est correcte sur la finition, et elle arrive avec un petit chargeur USB. Elle s’alimente avec un lon câble micro USB, c’est assez classique. Sur le côté, on trouve un emplacement pour une carte microSD (non fournie), un peu trop accessible à mon goût. Elle possède aussi un haut-parleur et un micro, mais il n’est pas accessible en HomeKit.

La caméra, simple mais efficace


microSD, enceinte, micro USB

Premier essai, uniquement en HomeKit. Et c’est un échec : impossible de connecter la caméra. Elle n’est pas visible dans HomeKit. L’application indique que si le code HomeKit est présent sous le pied – c’est le cas -, il n’y a pas besoin de l’application, en pratique… c’est différent.

Ben non

Pour configurer la caméra, j’ai donc dû créer un compte. Alors, c’est un peu une plaie : la localisation est obligatoire et le clavier passe en QWERTY pour le mot de passe (aucune idée de la raison) avec en plus des demandes reloues : 8 à 20 caractères, minuscules, chiffres, majuscules et caractères spéciaux (oui, tout). L’installation dans l’application est simple : elle utilise le Bluetooth pour détecter la caméra, on tape le mot de passe Wi-Fi (l’application ne le récupère pas) et on attend. J’ai eu un autre souci bizarre : la caméra a indiqué un problème (en parlant) avant de dire que c’était bon. Pour finir, j’ai eu une mise à jour de firmware « HomeKit » et j’ai pu ajouter la caméra dans Maison.

La création du compte


Mise à jour de firmware

Avant HomeKit, parlons de l’application. La caméra peut enregistrer sur une carte microSD (pas fournie) ou dans le cloud d’eufy (payant). L’activation d’HomeKit désactive pas mal de fonctions de détection, ainsi que le micro, mais aussi l’enregistrement en 2K : HomeKit limite au 1080p. Franchement, l’application est assez moyenne, avec de l’anglais fréquemment au milieu des textes en français, ce n’est pas génial. A noter qu’ils sont assez honnêtes sur les cartes SD : ils indiquent que les cartes peuvent être remplies 500x (c’est assez optimiste) et le temps d’enregistrement sur une carte (de 1,5 jour sur une 16 Go à 12 jours sur une 128 Go). Enfin, si on peut utiliser l’application pour streamer l’image (au lieu d’HomeKit), c’est assez horrible avec une latence de l’ordre de la seconde.

Pas de 2K


Pas de détection


Pas d’animaux (et encore des messages en anglais)

Dans HomeKit, la caméra propose deux appareils : un détecteur de mouvement et la caméra elle-même. Elle a évidemment un gros avantage : elle est compatible HomeKit Secure Video. Cette fonction sortie avec iOS 13 permet de stocker les vidéos chez Apple, gratuitement pendant 10 jours. Je mets en italique pour une bonne raison : HomeKit Secure Video nécessite un abonnement iCloud 200 Go (3 €/mois) pour une caméra, ou un abonnement 2 To (10 €) pour cinq caméras. Avec HomeKit Secure Video, on peut revenir facilement en arrière jusqu’à 10 jours en faisant défiler. Visiblement, c’est stocké en 1080p chez Apple et en 720p en streaming. Enfin, il faut aussi un concentrateur HomeKit (Apple TV, HomePod, iPad).

La solution d’Apple peut définir comment fonctionne la diffusion et l’enregistrement en fonction de la position de l’utilisateur, pour forcer l’enregistrement uniquement quand il n’y a personne par exemple. Il est aussi possible de définir l’accès aux autres utilisateurs quand vous partagez l’accès HomeKit, pour ne garder les enregistrements que pour l’utilisateur principal.

HomeKit



Alors que dire. La caméra est d’une qualité correcte physiquement. Ce n’est pas extraordinaire, mes Omna sont mieux finies, mais ça passe. La qualité d’image, par contre, est faible en HomeKit en pleine lumière : la Omna offre une image mieux définie, plus douce et globalement meilleure. La caméra d’eufy suffit pour de la détection, mais ça reste cracra quand même par rapport à la Omna. Il y a des artefacts, un zoom (bon, c’est plus lié à l’optique) et une accentuation de la netteté pas très efficace. Les captures viennent de l’application Maison sous macOS, c’est moins moche sur un iPhone ou un iPad, mais ça reste significativement en dessous.

Omna


Eufy


Omna


eufy


Omna


eufy

Dans le noir, rien à dire : le projecteur marche bien, c’est suffisant. Elle n’a pas de microphone en HomeKit, contrairement à d’autres (il est accessible dans l’application eufy). Mais elle a quand même deux (gros) avantages : HomeKit Secure Video (rare actuellement) et surtout le prix. Elle vaut 40 € quand la caméra Eve vaut ~150 € et la Circle View vaut officiellement 180 €. J’ai beaucoup plus confiance en Eve pour la sécurité, et elle ne nécessite pas de passer par une application dédiée pour l’installation, mais la différence de prix reste importante.

Je suis mitigé sur la mise en place – l’application n’inspire pas confiance – mais la caméra elle-même offre tout ce qui est nécessaire pour faire du HomeKit pas trop cher et de façon sécurisée. Apple indique que les vidéos sont chiffrées totalement, et les enregistrements ne prennent pas de place sur le cloud. A vous de voir si la qualité de l’image vous suffit.

Discovery Server (Ubuntu) PULL from source?

Hey folks!

Is it possible to PULL from a source in Discovery Server?

Scenario:
vMix running on Windows (192.168.1.101), with Access Manager configured to use Discovery Server (192.168.1.100)
vMix running on Windows (192.168.1.102), with Access Manager configured to use Discovery Server (192.168.1.100)

With the current scenario, both Windows machines can see all NDI outputs from vMix from both machines - this is working as expected.

New Scenario:
FFMPEG encoder running on Linux (192.168.1.103), with no Access Manager (coming soon, it seems) and no option to use a Discovery Server

With the new scenario, is it possible to have the Discover Server (192.168.1.100) PULL from an NDI source (192.168.1.103) so that the two Windows machines can see the NDI sources from the one Linux machine via the Discovery Server?

I stumbled upon the config file:
Code:

{
    "ndi": {
        "groups": {
            "recv": "\"public\"",
            "send": "\"public\""
        },
        "multicast": {
            "recv": {
                "enable": false,
                "subnets": ""
            },
            "send": {
                "enable": false,
                "netmask": "255.255.255.0",
                "netprefix": "239.192.136.100"
            }
        },
        "networks": {
            "discovery": "127.0.0.1",
            "ips": ""
        },
        "tcp": {
            "recv": {
                "enable": false
            },
            "send": {
                "enable": false
            }
        },
        "unicast": {
            "recv": {
                "enable": false
            },
            "send": {
                "enable": false
            }
        }
    }
}

I'm curious if that config can be modified to allow what I'm looking for?

NDI video color band

Par : slcf2003
I'm using Scan Converter on one computer as NDI source, and Studio Monitor to check the video quality. I happened to run a monitor gray scale test on the source computer, which basically is a grayscale gradient image. (http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gradient.php). It looks smooth on the source computer, but in the Studio Monitor, I can see some color bands in the image. Is it normal? Is this something to do with the color depth?

I attached a screenshot. Hopefully it is visible here.

Recording NDI with Alpha Channel

Par : DanBrennan
Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has had any success recording an NDI feed with an alpha channel to be either taken into an NLE or for playback at a later time? I've tried the NDI Studio Monitor recording feature but doesn't seem to record with the alpha channel. Ideally, I would like to record some graphics with an Alpha Channel from an NDI source to be brought into premiere pro.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Dan.
