Porta 2.2: Unlocking seamless broadcast workflows with Unreal Engine graphics
IBC attendees will be the first to learn about disguise’s latest release of the Porta controller. The release unlocks support for Unreal Engine’s Motion Graphics, enabling broadcasters to control all their graphics types — AR, xR and motion graphics — through one single user interface from the cloud or on-prem. This innovation reduces roundtripping — streamlining workflow, tools and operations.
The disguise team will be at the INFiLED stand 2.B43 to lift the lid on Porta 2.2 and answer any questions.
disguise solutions can be experienced throughout IBC at:
ROE Visual stand 7.C26
LED-based solutions for broadcast are highlighted at ROE Visual, including the ability to convert your LED video wall into an xR virtual production studio in one click. See for yourself how multiple cameras can “see” different LED output frames simultaneously using GhostFrame Technology. disguise provides show control for the whole booth and has a dedicated monitor on the brainbar for the ultimate lighting control, camera tracking and color calibration.
At the booth, disguise will partake in a panel of experts moderated by Epic Games’ BK Johanessen that is about “Media Engines for Broadcast & Film — What does the future hold?” as well as a joint presentation with Megapixel and ROE Visual called “Video over IP: What it means for me,” discussing the growth of ST2110 and IP video in broadcast and the technologies that enable its widespread adoption.
INFiLED stand 2.B43
disguise makes broadcast graphics workflows practical, efficient and end-to-end by driving any graphic to any pixel.
