Turn an image 90 degrees URGENT!!!
on May 23, 2013 at 6:45:41 am

I'm running live video content for a band, and the LED screens are turned on their side, so I need to send an image that is turned counter clockwise 90 degrees.

Currently, I'm using resolume and I absolutely hate it. I'd rather use my Roland P-10, but there is no option to turn the image.

Does anyone know of a hardware solution that can spin the image 90degrees counter clockwise?

Can the LED controller itself remap the incoming video?

Unfortunately no. I've tried everything with the equipment I have, I'm hoping there is a box I can get.

This may or may not be relevant, but recently, I was experimenting with a possible production for a 3-projection show with the projectors turned counter-clockwise, and following is what I discovered -

1) turned on its side in my production software, the pixel aspect ratio will not be maintained and images are distorted.

2) If the projectors are turned counter-clockwise, then the original image should be turned clock-wise in production, and vice versa.

Not sure how the LED panels would react in your case, but may be prudent to find out with a test image before investing in such a box, if it exists.

Suggest you try contacting TVOne.com to see if they have such a box, or custom build one.

my 2-cents,
Thomas Leong

If your playback device is a computer, it may offer portait video orientations.

But overall, I'm with Thomas. There is no "portrait" video standard -- in other words, you can't send a 1080x1920 signal. You are always sending 1920x1080. Rotating the image involves some kind of processing of the content that will alter either size or aspect ratio unless you're working in a square format.

Your best bet may be to handle this on the content side.

Thank you for the response, fellas. I'm going to resize the actual content. Thanks again.

I think the Atmosphere from a company in Germany does what you are describing. It is done with a MAC with 4 video cards. (for a 4 monitor system). We have used this system and it is quite impressive. Works with rotated LED displays or projectors.

Hope this is what you are looking for.
