In 2005 I assembled a group of artists and musicians to create images and sounds in a live performance environment.
As a developer with Inhance Digital, I was involved in the new development for a multi-screen presentation system for major defense contractors.
The Inhance VIP system includes three synchronized display screens (LCD, plasma, or projection) and two control (presenter) stations. The three presentation screens may be sync'ed for playback of wide-format video content (video or 2d/3d interactive animation). The presentation is controlled by the presenter at one of the two control stations. The system runs on five independent computers, with control and synchronization via Ethernet LAN.
VS3: realtime visual synthesis - a visual instrument based on the architecture/approach of a music synthesizer: original images are created in a performance environment by selecting sources (as one would select waveforms on a synthesizer) and applying some sort of method (algorithm) to combine and/or modulate them. Unlike a typical post-production environment, the VS3 system is designed to allow creative decisions to be made on-the-fly in a live performance. This approach is also more advanced than the typical 'VJ' paradigm, as the system doesn't just mix existing sources but actually generates original footage in real-time.
