Modulo Pi Adds Kinetic Version 5 Media Server

modulo pi kinetic version 5

Modulo Pi just announced the Modulo Kinetic Version 5, a media server with a full array of features for interactivity. Introduced in 2016, Modulo Kinetic is Modulo Pi’s flagship media server. The platform can be used across a complete project workflow thanks to its 3D environment, real-time timelines, embedded live mixer and show control tools, all brought within one consistent, user-friendly interface. The scalable platform is based on Kinetic Designer, an intuitive user interface with a dedicated workstation, connected to one or several networked V-Node servers.

Previewed at ISE 2023 in Barcelona, version 5 of Modulo Kinetic is now available. Modulo Kinetic V5 facilitates creating and implementing experiences featuring real-time interactions with video, audio, light, and generative content or machinery, for both permanent installations and live events.

All the steps required in an interactive design, from calibrating sensors to creating effects, are accessible from the media server, without programming code or creating gateways to a suite of third-party tools.

Modulo Kinetic V5 adds the support of various sensors to meet the needs and budget of any project: 2D LiDAR from Hokuyo and Leuze, 3D LiDAR from Ouster, but also Azure Kinect, Orbbec cameras, Leap Motion, etc. Integrated into Modulo Kinetic’s internal library of devices, the sensors can be calibrated in seconds, allowing the media server to flawlessly retrieve the position of one or multiple users to generate the interactive experience. A library of effects available as nodes is also embedded in Modulo Kinetic. The media server’s nodal compositing tool allows nodes to be chained and cumulated to create unique effects. Modulo Kinetic’s timelines system makes mixing interactive layers and pre-calculated media easy for smooth playback.
