Your standard software
for media control and playout
The software is developed for Windows, Linux and OSX, relies on established standards such as 64 bit and OpenGL and has been in professional use day after day for more than ten years.
The software runs on commercially available hardware - from laptops to high-performance workstations.
The StageDesigner software is designed to make the use of media for stage and event as easy as possible.
A show is created in just a few simple steps: Open media, create playlist, adjust output - done.
Preload & Playlist
Organize your media as cues with the playlist and control video, audio and lighting.
In the playlist, you can create your cues (recordings) in a clear, tabular system that can be expanded by rows and columns as desired. This way you transfer the show program into a logical flow that can be easily followed.
Another unique feature is that media (preload) and show flow (playlist) are explicitly separated. Both can therefore be developed independently of each other. This simplifies the artistic development process of a production, which is often changeable.
At the same time, the separation of media and sequence means that once a playlist has been built, it can be reused as a template for new shows.
With the practical mapping tool, you adjust the output precisely and at any time to your specific stage situation.
Video mapping in the theater or at events opens up new possibilities for designing the stage set. In most productions, mapping is therefore very individual, which is why precise settings have to be made.
With StageDesigner, you can use practical features to intervene in the settings at any point in the creation process and adjust the mapping precisely. Once settings have been made, they can be saved and reused as templates.
The mapping tool enables, among other things: Scale, rotate, flip, colorize and mask the output. Distort video in perspective on walls. Softedges allow panoramic projections. Black Level allows homogeneous areas in the dark areas. Animation tool allows tracking of moving stage elements.
Developed for over a decade, the mapping tool is field-proven, mature, highly accurate and user-friendly.
Whether small or large or even from a stick: The software reads everything!
From ad-hoc rehearsals with the smallest clips to high-resolution, projector-spanning image sequences. StageDesigner allows video in H.264 and MPEG-2 up to 4K and beyond, in both AVI and Quicktime formats. The video engine is based on the well-known VLC player.
The media engine also supports captioning, rich text, PDF files, and streaming formats such as NDI, any live camera, the HAP format specifically designed for large format video, and audio files with up to 64 channels.
Video cues can be dynamically controlled in playback speed for impressive scenic and dramatic effects.
Open for all tools
Dozens of protocols connect the StageDesigner with all tools, sensors and controllers.
Of course, the StageDesigner can be controlled via Midi, DMX and Art-Net. Fixture files are prepared for commercially available lighting consoles. Via the CITP protocol, media libraries can be read out on the lighting console and previewed.

A/B/C operating concept: Usable for every level
The StageDesigner operating concept follows an A/B/C concept: beginner, advanced and expert.
There cannot be a full-skill operator for every show. The StageDesigner is therefore designed in such a way that an absolute beginner (A-level) can be taught the basic principles within a few hours in order to be able to perform a prepared show safely.
Advanced students (B-Level) can solve creative tasks and smaller problems. They are able to set up a simple show for the evening.
Experts (C-level) advise the assistant director and show what is possible - for an impressive video performance.
With this concept we have become the standard software in theaters, as the show flow is guaranteed with any experience level.
