“Real-time graphics were key to create “El Artefacto”, we needed real-time reaction to the actor´s voice, something that was impossible with the media servers that were used for the video backgrounds at the gala” comments María Chueca. “I wasn´t very familiar with the use of particles in combination with audio data in Ventuz, but the interactive help scenes included with Ventuz were a lifesaver, giving me the chance to quickly understand the functionality and even reuse some of the example scenes”, continues María.
A second visual gag was a simulated blackout on stage. The idea was to use audience interaction to get the power back on and some VU meter graphics were displayed on the stage that reacted to the noise made by the audience and recharged the theater lights. This was only possible by using real-time graphics that reacted to the live audio input from the spectators in the theater.
“We are very happy with Ventuz because it gives us the flexibility needed to make all types of projects, from live events to broadcast, all using the same tool” commented Ferriol Moya, Production Manager at NEP Spain. “The outstanding reliability and stability of Ventuz is another reason why we consider Ventuz as one of the key tools for our current and future projects” finished Moya.
