disguise Integrates With ZeroSpace's SpoutBridge

disguise has announced integration with ZeroSpace's SpoutBridge, a tool that bridges the Spout technology with disguise RenderStream to facilitate production for xR and live events.

The ZeroSpace engineering team, a next-generation media production facility and research lab in downtown Brooklyn, NY, worked with disguise to open up access to ZeroSpace’s Spout technology within the disguise user community. Spout is integrated into most commercial VJ software and is available as a free plug-in for OBS Studio, the free, open-source cross-platform screencasting and streaming app. This allows sharing of the same GPU video texture with content render engines for uncompressed, zero-latency frame streaming.

"Spout is a tool used by visualists and creative technologists that is integrated into every major live visual rendering software. It's a simple-to-use interface that’s become the default standard in the live visuals environment for over a decade," said Evan Clark, Head Research Engineer at ZeroSpace.

"SpoutBridge integrates Spout with RenderStream, allowing the distribution of video content over IP networks between disguise machines. It also offers 12-bit RGBA color, ultra-low latency and ease of setup while removing the need to distribute SDI inputs across all physical machines," said disguise Lead Engineer Josh McNamee. Users need to configure their Spout application on a disguise rx render node to target the RenderStream bridge.

Aimed at installations, festivals and events with large LED displays that need an easy way to distribute live and interactive visuals across displays, this solution minimizes the need for physical cables and enables resolutions and color depths far beyond what HDMI or SDI are capable of. Currently, visualists are constrained by the physical outputs of their machines. This solution provides them with complete control over massive LED screens by creating a limitless canvas. By taking advantage of cluster rendering with video over IP, it will dramatically change the output requirements to drive LEDs while minimizing extraneous wiring.

The integration of SpoutBridge with disguise is the latest development in the disguise-ZeroSpace relationship. ZeroSpace began collaborating with disguise in early 2020 as part of disguise's xR insider group. The company then became one of the first partners in disguise Metaverse Labs, a global network of experts that deliver hybrid experiences in the metaverse, drawing on the RenderStream infrastructure’s ability to connect real and virtual worlds.

ZeroSpace was also the first official Metaverse Labs partner site. It has collaborated closely with the disguise Labs team in New Zealand to create interconnected stage workflows, cross-continent communication and develop the future of truly hybrid events. The team is also working closely with disguise partner 4Wall Entertainment — a team known for their expertise in xR and ICVFX — to provide a truly unique space for real-time rendering, ICVFX and xR workflows.
