10 Year Resolume Anniversary!
Exactly 11 years ago (May 16 2000) we registered the Resolume.com domain name. We (Edwin & Bart) were working together on VJ software for our graduation project and decided to use the name Resolume for it. Back then we never imagined we'd still be working on Resolume so many years later!
After our graduation it took us another year to test and finalize Resolume but in 2001 we launched Resolume 1.0. The first license was bought by Vision Impossible, a Dutch VJ team who also continue to rock to this day.
When we released Resolume 1.0 it had just a few blend modes and effects but it could already play AVI and Quicktime movies, display GIF, JPEG, Bitmap and Photoshop images and even play Flash files! It could play 3 layers but remember this was all at 320x240 resolution. Checkout what the Resolume website looked like back then with the Way Back Machine. Or download the Resolume 1.0 installer.
Resolume 2 was released on August 16 in 2004. New features included output to multiple screens, streaming video over the network to other Resolume instances and it featured a gray and pink interface. This caused quite an uproar back then.
Resolume 3.0 was by far the biggest release we have ever done. It was completely rewritten in a different programming language (C++) because version 1 and 2 were written in Delphi they would never work on the Mac. It was a big change but it was probably one of the best decisions we have ever made. We do not think we would still be here if we did not take that big step back then.
We're looking forward to another 10 years
