disguise | January 19, 2023
On January 18, 2023, disguise released Porta 2.1, an exceptional update to its integrated software solution that easily enables the management of Unreal Engine graphics directly within their existing workflows with their News Room Computer System (NRCS) integration through MOS protocol.
Porta 2.1 users can intuitively control real-time graphics through enhanced data sharing with its new NRCS integration. Using Pixel Streaming and macros, in-house and remote teams can automate manual tasks with macros, preview Unreal Engine live, and more.
Grigory Mindlin, Broadcast General Manager at disguise said, “This latest Porta release ticks NRCS integration off the wishlists of many of our users, including NBC, TUDN and TV Globo. He added, “With it, broadcasters can now easily control all show graphics and live content, as well as LEDs, tracking systems, tickers and scorebugs – all from a single interface that can be used by multiple operators simultaneously.”
With Porta 2.1, broadcasters can take advantage of future tools for augmented reality or virtual production. As part of disguise's Emmy-Award-winning xR solutions, Porta 2.1 can display realistic 8K content on an LED set the size of a football field. Porta users worldwide can design fully integrated, comprehensive reality workflows with disguise's Meptik and disguise Lab's creative services teams.
A few additional benefits of this update include the following:
Stress-free teamwork- In their newsroom rundowns, graphics can be created by journalists, producers and directors. This can then be approved for graphics operators to play out from Porta.
Easier workflows for operators – This update enables operators to easily customize workflow and automate a show with the new visual macros and scheduling widgets. Porta UI can be customized even further by color-coding playlists and workspaces. Through macros, they can even generate playlists from data and reduce manual entry.
Faster deliveries- To reduce repetitive tasks and speed delivery, broadcasters can search for specific graphics and assign them to the right story.
Porta 2.1 will be a SaaS subscription, providing simple access and unlimited scalability.
disguise is the platform to create, imagine, and deliver stunning visual experiences. Its award-winning extended reality (xR) solution has been used to power over 600 live, real-time, immersive productions for music artists. The company is making the next generation of collaborative tools to help technologists and artists bring their ideas to life. The company, a Financial Times 2022 Tech Hero, announced new majority backing from Carlyle Group and a minority stake from Epic Games. Through its training, clients and partners may master disguise technology, develop new skills, swiftly solve challenges, and maximize their potential.
