Stage Research Video 101 Manager Captures Live Feeds

PLSN Staff • Product News • January 1, 2009

NORTHFIELD, OH — Stage Research’s Video 101 Manager can now do more than  play video directly from SFX software.  It has just been upgraded to let the producer/stage technician route live video as an input. This new function of Video 101 Manager will let the end-user mix and blend live, and/or canned, motion over dance, musical performance, theater, or even corporate (sales/training/motivation) podium/panel presentations. Stage Research’s updated Video 101 Manager also includes all the features of the standard version.  This means the end user can play most video formats (such as MPG, AVI or WMV), as well as route video to any video output on their computer.  The SFX extension, free to all current SFX 6.x users, lets them locate Video Manager on the same computer as SFX, or anywhere on the network. They can also fade videos in and out and cross fade between different videos.

“With the launch of the latest edition of Video 101 Manager, SFX 6.x users can enliven staged entertainment even further by incorporating live feeds into the meld,” said Stage Research’s Carlton Guc.  “This  live/canned/live collage realm will know no limits as content creators and live-show maestros continue to push their prowess and talents over the edge into the magnificent.  Our Video 101 Manager will play a major role in the game.”
