New Promo for 2016

So, over the past years we've seen Resolume being used on some amazing shows, stages and performances. It always fills our heart with pride and excitement to be a part of these wonderful projects.

Walking into an empty venue and seeing the stage come alive piece by piece is an amazing experience. With this promo, we hope to share a bit of that wonderful feeling with you.

See you in a dark hall with blinky light bits somewhere!

Thank You & Black Friday Sale 2015

Picture by Jody Hartley
It's been another fantastic year here at Resolume HQ. We feel truly blessed to be working on our baby every day and seeing it grow up.

This year was the first time in 4 years that we released a new major version, Arena 5 and it went very smooth. We took a lot of time to rigorously field-test and made sure Arena 5 already had a lot of show hours under it's belt on release day. This made sure it was as stable as possible.

We're starting to grow up as a company and with this comes great responsibility. We see your shows becoming bigger and bigger. The stages are larger and more complex and the audiences that come to party are also bigger than ever. Good times!

Coming year we hope to grow our team further so we can kick into higher gear and bring you many new updates. Thanks to your feedback we have a lot of ideas for small improvements as well as big new features.

Time will tell what 2016 will bring and we're looking forward to another fantastic year.

Team Resolume

Yes, the Black Friday 50% discount is now ON! It's here only once a year and it's only a few days so be quick. Log in to your account to upgrade to Arena 5, upgrade your footage (to a higher resolution) or upgrade to multiple computers, it's time to shop ;-)

Update: This party is now over, see y'all next year!

Resolume Arena 5.0.1 & Avenue 4.5.1 Updates

"Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow." - Eric Raymond

Arena 5 got a LOT of eyeballs since its release just 6 weeks ago. Many of you upgraded to Arena 5 and put it in front of crowds big and small, lighting up screens and LED pixels worldwide.

There were no MAJOR bugs in Arena 5.0.0. and Avenue 4.5.0. Nobody's cat caught fire, no laptops melted, nobody got hurt. But there are always small bugs in software and we're happy to now release Arena 5.0.1 & Avenue 4.5.1. These updates fix a few bugs, just to keep you sailing as smoothly as possible.

Download and Enjoy!

New Footage: Don't Call it a Comeback

We've been very busy with the release of Res 5. So busy that we had to put the footage label on a slow burner for a while. Now we're happy to announce that we're back, and in style.

Feeling cramped by the SD PAL resolution that you thought was the bomb in 2008? We've added the option to easily upgrade your packs to a higher resolution. Log in to your account in the shop to see all your upgrade options:

Joris has been working his magic with Resolume's sources and effects again, and he pulled the elusive Radarize out of his big bag of tricks. Of course the Resolume composition is included.

phpBB [video]

Get Radarize, *exclusively* on Resolume Footage.

VJ Hummer always has a distinct visual style, and Characters is no different. These loops are made for walkin', and that's just what they'll do.

Get Characters, *exclusively* on Resolume Footage.

And when Artificially Awake drops a release, you know it's nothing but quality. Abstract is a swiss army knife of different styles and looks.

Get Abstract on Resolume Footage.
