“The live events industry has been waiting for a way to make interactive content and live visual effects easily, with an intuitive workflow designed for artists and the integrations needed for production technicians. With Notch, the creative constraints disappear.
Live Video Effects
Use Notch’s visual effects and compositing capabilities on live video sources for compelling performance experiences.
Notch’s visual effects engine creates effects around tracked moving performers on stage, including interactive magic, smoke, pools of water or fire.
Light your stage with real light or projection, it’s your choice. And control it all as a fixture from your lighting desk.
Redefining Possible In Live Event Visuals
Edit content live on your laptop, while you look at it on its target output – projected on the stage or LED screens. Make changes, instantly reflected on your media server.
Resolution Independent Content
No longer be tied to a pre-defined raster layout. Handle canvas sizes that change daily (like a festival tour), without re-rendering content.
Control your content directly from the lighting desk or controller. Any node parameter can be changed live in real-time.
Create in Notch Builder, play back on your Media Server
or use standalone.
Revolutionising IMAG. Again.
Make IMAG part of the visual narrative, with a whole new palette and artistic toolset. You can now bring IMAG in from the wings making it front and centre with your content once again.
Video treatments can range from particles, clouds or fire to subtle grains and grades, created by you or pre made by talented designers and colourists.
Notch brings new and creative ways of lighting your scenic space with greater flexibility. Move between virtual and real lighting from the lighting desk.
Create interactive light sources attached to props or actors, bringing a whole new dramatic dimension.
Kinect and Stereo Camera Support
Bring new depths to your on-set camera suite through the support of Kinect and stereo cameras. Allow audiences to see whole new dimensions of the show, whether pulling artists away from the background or using them as a source for visual effects.
Live Editing and Real-time Control
Transform the way you work by editing content live, front of house. Watch changes appear before your eyes on its target output, projected on the stage of LED screens. Get rid of the overnight notes, make the changes instantly.
VR is advancing. The central architecture of Notch translates your existing workflow to VR.
The Right Tool For The Job
Notch is designed to deliver narrative, creative experiences. No bending ‘game engines’ to be something they are not.
Rather clever rendering techniques specifically designed to meet unique VR challenges.
VR Headset Support [Beta]
Notch Builder outputs directly to the VR headset, bringing the full weight of features to your VR project with real-time previewing and editing. Or view your experience on one machine, while editing on another via network.
With Oculus support out of the box and more headsets coming, you can start building your VR projects today.
360 Stereo Video
Create monoscopic and stereoscopic 360 videos with a real-time workflow. Preview on VR headsets, then render to video with one of the fastest 360 renderers around.
