What’s new in GrandVJ 2 Beta

ArKaos GrandVJ XT Layers pane

New interface

GrandVJ 2 comes with a new interface, making it even more user friendly and straightforward, while integrating new functionalities in it.

New effects and transitions

We’ve added cool new effects such as « Edge Glow », « Video Signal Distortion » or a very useful « Color Correction » effect that can help you quickly fix Hue, Saturation or Lightness on a video in a live environment.

Improved performance

The video processing engine has been updated, bringing support for the latest codecs and improving performance with older ones thanks to a better use of multithreading.

GrandVJ XT and the Video Mapper extension

ArKaos GrandVJ XT and Video Mapper

GrandVJ 2 and GrandVJ XT

GrandVJ XT is an “extended” version of GrandVJ 2 which adds expert features such as the Video Mapper extension, allowing projection mapping and advanced management of multiple displays.

GrandVJ XT can send layer or cells output to virtual “surfaces” that can be scaled, deformed, and assigned to any physical output. One output can display a full screen visual or a composition of several mapped visuals, so you can easily create complex visual compostions on a set of LED screens – even with different resolutions – or just output to a video projector and deform the surfaces to flow them across any physical volume (like objects, or buildings..).

Upgrading to GrandVJ XT

You can upgrade from any version of GrandVJ to GrandVJ XT from your customer account, now or later.
For our GrandVJ 1 users that are eager to use the Video Mapper, there’s a one step upgrade from GrandVJ 1 to GrandVJ XT with a -10% loyalty discount during one month.

Flexible license system

Easier software activation

We have completely reworked the software activation system to make it much more straightforward, flexible and user friendly (no more lengthy codes to copy/paste).

One license, two computers

You can now  activate and use GrandVJ 2 on up to two computers at the same time with one license (i.e. main computer and backup) – instead of one with the GrandVJ 1 license agreement.

You’re in control

You can also deactivate GrandVJ 2 on a computer before activating it on antoher, which allows temporary use of the software on any computer. The activation/deactivation process requires that you connect your computer to the Internet.

Important

  • GrandVJ 2 / GrandVJ XT are currently available as Beta software and as such, is not recommended for professional use or use in situations where performance and stability are required.
