The guys from Resolume are back for the second edition of FIBER Festival. This year they will lead a workshop in video mapping as part of the ongoing DAY workshop programme. No talks, just hard-core mapping. Resolume’s Avenue 4 is an instrument for VJs, AV performers and video artists. It puts all your media and effects right at your fingertips, so you can quickly improvise any live visuals.

More info on the workshops will follow soon here. Get the Resolume DEMO version here.

Who is Resolume?
Resolume is developed by a small team in The Hague with support from a hand full of specialized freelancers. Back in 1998 VJ-ing was done with VHS tapes and an mx50 video mixer, so it was hard to quickly improvise video to music because tempo could not be adjusted, or even reversed. Effects were limited to what the mx50 had to offer. These guys thought software would allow them to improvise more and be a better VJ. They could not find any VJ software that did what they wanted back in 1998, so they started programming their own. As a result they have created one of the leading software tools for VJ’s.

What is Video Mapping?
Video Projection Mapping is a projection technique that can turn almost any surface into a dynamic video display. Specialized software is used to warp and mask the projected image to make it fit perfectly on irregularly shaped screens.
