Live Video Mixing
Resolume puts you in charge. You can play your videos when you want, how you want. Forwards, backwards, scratch and adjust tempo to the beat. Mix and match your visuals quickly and easily and play Resolume like an instrument.
Whatever your style is, Resolume offers you an easy interface to rock it. Use as little or as many videos and effects as you like. The only limit is your computer’s raw power and your imagination.
From Your Local Club to Main Stage
You can play on any amount of screens. From a simple screen behind the DJ in your local club to main stage at Ultra. As long as your computer can recognise it as an output, Resolume will let you use it.
Projection Mapping with Arena
Project video on any type of surface. Complex geometrical structures or whole buildings. Resolume does all the hard work, so you can concentrate on the important part: being creative.
Blend Projectors with Arena
With edge blending you can seamlessly project one beautiful widescreen image with two or more projectors. It can even wrap around for a full 360 degree experience.
Project on Cars, Buildings or Pumpkins
With Arena you can take on any size mapping project. From projecting on DJ booths to cars, buildings and LED mappings on giant stages like Ultra.
LED There Be Light
Think outside the screen and colour the lights too! With Arena 5 you can send out colours to DMX fixtures and the lights will be in sync with your visuals.
Live Composite & Effects
Adjust the scale and position of your clips to suit your needs. Apply effects to drastically change the look of your video. Everything runs on the video card so you get the fastest performance and best image quality possible.
Real Time Rendering
Apply effects, blend, mix, cut and edit, everything happens on the spot.
Audio & Visual Plugins
All visual effects in Resolume are plugins and you can easily add more effects by download 3rd party plugins. You can even program your own using OpenGL. On the audio side you can use VST plugins to play your favourite effects.
Integrate With Other Apps
With Syphon on the Mac and Spout on Windows you can share visuals in real-time between Resolume and other apps running on the same computer. You can even program your own apps that integrate with Resolume.
Connect a plug & play webcam or capture a high-end camera and bring images of the crowd, the DJ or the band on-stage into your mix.
With native support for Blackmagic, AJA and DataPath capture cards you can input and output almost any video source.
Video over IP with NewTek NDI
With NewTek NDI you can send and receive video between computers on the same network. Use any resolution you like, with an alpha channel, in high quality and low latency.
Audio Visual Playback
Resolume plays both audio and video files. Animate pixels and drop beats, combine any video file with any audio file.
Audio Visual Effects
Resolume has both audio effects and video effects. Use them separately or combine them to create exciting new audio visual effects.
Make clips and effects dance to the beat. Resolume can analyse audio to make any parameter bounce to the music.
“Yes I AM actually DJing Live”
With SMPTE Timecode input in Arena you can run you clips in sync with the DJ. Watch below how Armin van Buuren controls the show with Pioneer CDJs and Resolume.

High Performance Codec
With the DXV 3 Codec you can mix more video layers on a higher resolution than any other codec. How? By doing all the hard work on the hardware that does it best: the video card.
Easy to Use
DXV comes with just a few settings that are designed to deliver maximum performance with minimal loss of quality. Let the codec do the thinking so you can do the mixing.
The DXV Codec is a cross-platform QuickTime codec. Any QuickTime enabled application on Mac and PC can render video files to DXV.
Adobe DXV Plugins
We have created a set of Adobe DXV exporter & importer plugins that enable rendering with the DXV codec in Adobe Premiere Pro, Media Encoder and After Effects.
