ProVideoPlayer 2.1.2 (Mac OS X) | 33 MB
ProVideoPlayer was designed to enhanced live staging events such as concerts, trade show booths, conferences, or church services; it manages an unlimited amount of clips in an unlimited number of playlists and gives a tremendous amount of control to the playback of these video clips including Hue, Brightness, Saturation, Start/Stop times, and speed, either on a per-clip basis or universally.
ProVideoPlayer 2 features an all new UI. This interface accommodates all the new features we have announced to make PVP2 the easiest to use and most versatile video staging application on the market.
Since its inception, ProVideoPlayer has been used by our customers to create unique, multi-screen presentations using both external graphics modules (such as the Matrox TripleHead2Go) or networking multiple computers over a network and using the powerful network triggering that exists in the software. ProVideoPlayer 2 makes it easier than ever before to create multi-screen presentations from a single computer with support for multiple graphics cards and easy mapping within each graphics card and across multiple cards. Whats more, you can add external graphics processors to each one of these graphics card outputs to give even more screens. You can even add outputs that are not yet connected to a physical output. This allows you to pre-build a show before arriving on site.
Layers and Targets
Modern multi-display productions often require the use of multiple videos playing in a variety of ways. It is for this reason that PVP2 has support for multiple layers. Layers deliver a level of flexibility to create unique looks and allow the user to take full advantage of the multiple screen functionality in PVP 2. A Layer is merely a video channel, so multiple layers are also great for a single screen environment where layering, textures, or PIPs are desired.
PVP 2 introduces a number of 2D and 3D transitions, along with standard cuts and cross dissolves. These transitions can be set globally, on a per clip basis. The user selects the speed of the transition, which can be changed globally on the fly.
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.
Many ProVideoPlayer users only need a single computer to drive their single screen set ups. With PVP 2, additional graphics cards will greatly expand that functionality, however, for large projects a single machine is not capable of delivering the number of pixels you desire. PVP allows you to network multiple machines together and will deliver frame accurate playback across multiple machines. You can view the network connection status in real time in the network panel.
Tabbed Slave Control
While networking multiple machines together for synced playback over a network is an incredibly powerful feature, managing content across multiple machines has been a cumbersome process. Tabbed Viewing changes all of this and revolutionizes your multi-computer workflow. You can view Slave machines as a tab on the Master and move content, arrange playlists, trigger clips, clear layers and more all from the Master. This tabbed viewing of slaves makes managing multiple computer set ups easier than ever.
The addition of Layers may leave you wishing your mouse could be in two places at once. Macros allow you to trigger different clips on different layers at the same time. Once you create a macro, just drag and drop the thumbnail for each video you want to be part of that Macro. Select a layer for the video, set your transition and transition duration, and you are good to go. Multiple video clips triggered with a single mouse click--thats Macros.
Yes--PVP 2 has Masking! Many users have made great use of the mask layer in ProPresenter and it has been one of the most requested features in PVP 2. We have built an incredible mask drawing tool that allows you to create custom paths with bezier curves for the mask utilizing similar methodology as many drawing programs. You can use the square and circle tool for common shapes as well. Multiple masks can be created and each mask has its own key and fill setting. To add the final bit of functionality, each mask can be set to operate as a Keyhole Mask or Overlay Mask.
