  • Project: vvvv a multipurpose toolkit
  • Date: July 1998
  • vvvv.org

VVVV is a toolkit for real time video synthesis. It is designed to facilitate the handling of large media environments with physical interfaces, real-time motion graphics, networks, video and light that can interact with many users simultaneously.
VVVV is free for noncommercial use, and can be downloaded at vvvv.org commercial licenses can be ordered at the vvvv.org online shop.

The development of vvvv was initiated 1998 by Sebastian Oschatz and Max Wolf at MESO to built a high performance multimedia tool to prototype and implement leading edge media installations. They were joined shortly after by Sebastian Gregor who invented many of the core algorithms. In 2000 Joreg joined the team at MESO to set up the graphical user interface as his diploma thesis. In the first years vvvv was used exclusively as an in house tool. The first public release was in December 2002.
In 2006 the further development of vvvv was handed over to the vvvv group consisting out of Joreg, Sebastian Oschatz, Sebastian Gregor and Max Wolf, who coordinate further developments of the software. The development is now lead by Joreg and Sebastian Gregor.

This page lists many of the projects which have been implemented with VVVV by MESO Digital Interiors.

As you have seen above, MESO Digital Interiors successfully used VVVV in the following areas:

  • Media Environments: VVVV can be used to develop large-scale installations using inputs from various external devices and creating audio and video as well as controlling DMX systems or other devices.
  • Rapid Prototyping of Interactive Systems: The structure of VVVV’s graphical programming language is ideal for making quick prototypes of more complex systems. The clean and efficient user interface includes lots of handy shortcuts and usability features.
  • Projections. The powerful DirectX capabilities allow for realtime image warping on arbitrary surfaces, color correction and soft-edge blending.
  • Interactive TV-Broadcast Design and Animation: VVVV’s real-time 2D & 3D graphical output can be used to create high quality full motion graphics which are suitable for interactive broadcast applications.
  • Multi-Projection setups: With the clustering & networking capabilities, VVVV can run synchronized on multiple computers to create huge panorama projections with multiple render clients.
  • Content Syndication: With the internet and text processing nodes it is possible to use VVVV to gather and prepare text from various internet sources and display them in various forms.
  • Teaching: VVVV contains many powerful and easy to use modules
  • Custom VJ Instruments: Create your own customized VJ applications to generate graphics that react to musical input. Use MIDI faders, DMX input, touch panels, audio and video input to further control your application.
