disguise win Best Debuting Product at LDI 2014

disguise have returned from a highly successful Live Design International (LDI), held 17-23 November in Las Vegas. Next to demonstrating designer’s Dynamic Blend and BlackTrax’ real-time motion tracking solution as well as their new pro range, disguise secured the much coveted award for Best Debuting Product in the Projection category.

Projection Master Classes
Starting the Las Vegas activities on an educational note, Director at disguise: Ash Nehru took part in the Projection Master Classes on 18-19 Nov as a panel speaker on Marvel Universe LIVE! Moderated by Bob Bonniol, the panel included Gil Densham, president of BlackTrax, Lisa Telles from Antfarm, associate designer Pablo Molina and show director Shanda Sawyer.

Ash Nehru also joined the stage on the second day of the classes for a panel on the BIG picture discussing innovative and large-scale event technologies, whilst the rest of the disguise team were available for product demonstrations during the breaks on both days.

Projection & pro range
Over at the disguise booth on the show floor, disguise demonstrated their upcoming software feature Dynamic Blend, which allows for seamless projections on moving objects using multiple projectors – in this case three of Barco’s high res collaboration CRWQ were used.

The moving objects were tracked through an integration with real-time motion tracking system BlackTrax by CAST BlackTrax Ltd. As such designer was able to effectively demonstrate how projection designs are no longer tied to static objects. A Barco RLM W14 was used to present the disguise user interface on a projection screen, further emphasising the real-time nature of the demonstration.

Next to the tracking and Dynamic Edge demo, where visitors could interact with projection objects, disguise debuted their new hardware range consisting of the 4×4pro and 4×2pro. These two media servers come with disguise software installed, and are built to drive the most demanding shows.

Best Debuting Product: Projection
To top off an already excellent show, disguise were awarded the ‘Best Debuting Product’ in the Projection category during the LDI Awards Ceremony for their 4×4pro system. Designer’s inbuilt projection toolkit includes features such as QuickCal, MultiEdit and FootPrints. With the upcoming Dynamic Blend feature, projection mapping will be easier than ever with disguise.

disguise would like to thank CAST BlackTrax Ltd, Barco N.V. and WorldStage for their support during LDI 2014.
