Manipulate, trigger and mix video clips with sound, animated text strings or live cameras in much the same way as mixing music to create a spectacular audiovisual show. GrandVJ can mix up to 8 layers with a vast library of video effects, transitions and sound driven visual generators. The A/B crossfading mode with independent preview makes it incredibly flexible to perform live, and the Browser Preview feature lets you preview visuals, effects, transitions and sources before sending them to the output, just like a DJ previews his next track in his headphones. GrandVJ runs on both PC and Mac and accepts all common video and image formats. Its intuitive interface lets you turn your keyboard into a super controller for zipping through the functions. Need more? GrandVJ's learn mode makes it a breeze to set up any MIDI controller and with support for the network based OSC protocol you can even control GrandVJ with an iPhone or an iPad. Hook it up and start the show!

XTEND YOUR CREATIVITY!
GrandVJ XT is an “extended” version of GrandVJ 2 which adds expert features such as the Video Mapper extension, allowing projection mapping and advanced management of multiple displays.
GrandVJ XT can send layer or cells output to virtual “surfaces” in the VideoMapper extension. These surfaces can be scaled, deformed, and assigned to any physical output. One output can display a full screen visual or a composition of several mapped visuals, so you can easily create complex visual compositions on a set of LED screens - even with different resolutions - or just output to a video projector and deform the surfaces to flow them across any physical volume (like objects, or buildings…).
The boxed version contains the same software but adds an additional DVD-Rom stuffed with 2.8 GB of HQ video footage ready to be mixed in the software. These additional loops are exclusively available with the box and can't be obtained separately, they have been made especially for VJing purpose by professional VJ's and Visual Artists from all over the world.
