Since its original release 8 years ago, PVP has been used by organizations around the world to create video walls, digital signage, dynamic staging and much more. This experience and customer feedback drove the development plan for the next generation of this powerful tool. The need for a robust, easy to use playback tool that excels in multi-screen environments is something we have heard from many customers.
Mapping is core functionality for multi-screen environments that is essential yet very intimidating at the same time. PVP2 takes mapping to the masses with its easy UI and WYSIWYG interface for drawing outputs. You can import a JPEG of your CAD drawing of your design or even import a photo of the stage. Drag your displays where they are positioned within the image, and resize them to take their proper relative size vs. other screens. When you span a target across all of your screens, PVP does the scaling for you and your rendered video on each screen is now position properly in real space. This is a great way to account for bezels on video walls, negative space between displays on a stage, overlapping screens, and more.
The advanced user can also get into a more detail if desired by double clicking on a render target and selecting source coordinates from the video. You can then place your targets where you would like this with pixel accurate precision. In this view you can also import an image (photograph, drawing, etc) to make source coordinate selection more precise.
While the software may work on systems that do not meet these requirements, those systems will not be supported. As always, you will be able to download the software at no charge to test performance on any computer.
