it’s indeed a long time since the last newsletter but videopong.net itself is still a very buzzing platform and meanwhile there are
16’500 clips available from more than 4300 visual artists around the globe.
And we have even more amazing news for you:
yeah! we’re sure you’ve heard of Blendy Dome VJ: The Fulldome Mapping Software. BDVJ is an intuitive dome mapping tool that
features a realtime domemaster slicer, a 3D content viewer and much more. This next generation software can easily map any dome
surface using 1 laptop with 3-6 projector outputs and 1 to 2 Matrox Triplehead adaptors to project on curved surfaces. Blendy Dome
VJ reads any Syphon Server playing domemaster and also allows you to preview content on a virtual 3D dome before your show.
The FULLDOME UK 2014 Festival is the 7th and 8th of November at the National Space Centre in Leicester (UK) and debutes
fulldome films (short and feature length). It is a fulldome film festival with realtime/VJ performances, Talks and discussions and
