Showing content from web browser in Resolume?

Post by gpvillamil » Mon Jan 30, 2017 22:58

So we have a 5 projector setup in a room (3 walls, floor and ceiling) which we use for immersive presentations.

We're using Resolume Arena 5 to manage the mapping (the room is small so the angles are aggressive) and edge blending.

For Resolume-based shows and presentations, it works great. However, there is a lot of interest in being able to project content from other apps through the Resolume mapping, eg bring up a web page in a browser.

Is there any good way of doing this? I'm thinking perhaps through Spout or Syphon?

Alternatively - is there a good hardware based keystoning/edge blending solution?

Under MacOS i'd definitely take a look at Syphoner.

At least I can rely on one of them

I'd look at capture card options, you can then manage the content externally and load the capture card wherever you want to in the composition. I use this to bring in "tweetwall" type content along with cameras and Powerpoint content.

Thank you, this worked extremely well. We added a Blackmagic Decklink Mini Recorder to our rig, and presenters connect their laptop to it just as if it was a projector.
