1. Introduction
1. INTRODUCTION
1.1 What is the Vertige
Vertige™ is a revolutionary Remote Controller integrating new ways to create and manage large events
and multi-venues. The Vertige™ brings a simple and flexible approach to show creation and management.
Vertige™ can control several screens and devices such as Ascender 48, Ascender 32, SmartMatriX Ultra
or NeXtage 16 systems, independently or simultaneously in any kind of combination, including Soft Edge
Blending. Vertige™also supports linked LiveCore™ devices (additive modularity) and LiveCore™ Expansion
modules.
1.2 Useful terms and definitions
SHOW: a “show” is a complete set up for an event containing several devices, screens, sources and presets.
ITERATION: an “iteration” is a version of a show. Iterations can be used to create backups or variants of a
show. On a broader level, iterations allow refining your setup step by step.
ASSEMBLY: an “Assembly” or a “Device Assembly” handles one or several identical devices that can operate
on the same screens.
SCREEN: A “Screen” is a destination where a picture will be displayed. For example, it could be a single display
or a projection surface, which can be composed of one or several outputs. Each screen might use one or
several layers.
PRESET: a “Preset” on the Vertige™, is a capture of a state of the scene (one or more screens). Preset allows
storing the layout of the elements and their sources for a specific step of the event.
LAYER: a “Layer” is an image display element (such as a Background, a PIP, or a Logo) that has an associated
visual priority — either in front of another layer or behind.
PIP: a “PIP” refers to Picture-in-Picture. It is a layer, typically not full size, which displays a stream on top
of another layer. PIPs can be reduced, enlarged, bordered and shadowed. They can overlap one another,
depending on their visual priority.
STREAM: a “Stream” can be Live (signal from an input plug) or Still (frame/logo) and allows you to display
content with various settings (aspect ratio, brightness, crop…) in a layer.
SOURCE: a “source” allows the user to assign a Vertige™ panel key to a stream (per screen).
FRAME: a “Frame” is an image, usually used to fill a background, which is selected from the still Frame library.
It can also be loaded to a LiveCore™ device using the Web RCS.
LOGO: a “Logo” is a small image, usually used to display company logo or labels, which is selected from the
still Logo library. It can also be loaded to a LiveCore™ device using the Web RCS.
SOFT EDGE: Soft Edge blending technology is used to compensate overlapping video projectors which display
content on a single Screen. The resulting image will appear as though it were a single unified picture.
HARD EDGE: Hard Edge technology is used to display continuous content using several outputs without any
overlap. The outputs are “side by side”, they don’t overlap or share pixel information. (Opposed to Soft Edge
where some parts of the image are sent simultaneously to several displays.)

1- Touch screen
The touch screen 15’’6 Wide displays comfortably on the same page the representation of the Program &
Preview of a typical scene (Blend + 2 satellites). It is important to have the whole scene represented to work
on multiple layers from different screens at the same time (change of source of background, for example). It
is useful to have both states Program/Preview shown at the same time as the LiveCore™ series allows you to
change one or the other at any time (even during an effect).
2- Preset section
This section allows the user to save/load its scene
presets (10 direct access presets and a page
mechanism to organize them).
3- Layer section
This section enables the operator to select a set of
layers which belong to different screens in order
to edit them simultaneously. Various criteria are
used to perform advanced combinations. It will be
possible to save those combinations for later use.
4- Source section
This section allows assigning sources to the selected
layers in Program or Preview. Twelve contextual
buttons display the name of sources. The page
mechanism allows benefiting from numerous
sources in association with the management of
plugs for the LiveCore™ series.
5- Control section
This section enables the operator
to select which preset to work with,
and have direct access to basic
functions applied to all selected
layers (Clear, Unify ...).

3.2 Color codes
6- Edit section
This section allows the operator to edit the selected
layers in three different ways: roughly by the
joystick, finely by coders or directly by numpad. The
block containing the numpad is contextual and also
provides access to pages of shortcuts, tools, layer
presets (position, size, border, effect …).
7- Transition section
This section enables the operator to use the T-Bar
for transitions. Sliders can be used like T-Bar (Effects)
or like Faders (Alpha). They are motorized in order
to see the current state of the selection.
8- Control Transition
This section allows giving a specific role to the sliders:
- In FX mode, they allow to individually mix each screen
- In Alpha mode, where different layers of different screens can be assigned to a slider, they will allow to
control the layer opacity (transparency).
IMPORTANT: The front panel is available as soon as an iteration is loaded. The front panel is
dedicated to presets and transitions and the touch screen state will never interfere with it.
3.2 Color codes
The Vertige™ buttons were designed with a handy color code to guide users, avoid mistakes, and give
a constant status of the device. Thus, all Vertige buttons have two or three different states (and colors),
depending on their function and their current state.
All standard buttons mapped to an available function/slot light up GREEN.
All contextual buttons mapped to an available function/slot light up BLUE.
Any of these buttons turns YELLOW when the function/slot is selected/filled.
If one of these buttons blinks YELLOW, it means the function/slot is waiting for a confirmation (a second
consecutive press).
All double sized buttons like PROGRAM or PREVIEW are either OFF or lighten up in RED to indicate the
current mode.
TAKE CUT & TAKE buttons are always RED and will BLINK when there is a Take in progress.

To be able to make a source selection using the Vertige™ console, you must first select at least one layer.
The Vertige™ layer selection buttons are powerful tools for fast and efficient selection of layers for source
selection and layer manipulation.
Layers which are selected will be highlighted on the touchscreen. At any time, you may have zero, one, or
many layers selected on either Program or Preview. To select a layer, there are several options:
5.1.1 Selecting layers from the touchscreen
At any time when the Preset Page screen is open, a layer may be selected by directly touching it on the
touchscreen. Touching another layer will release your current selection and select the new layer.
To select multiple layers, or remove a layer from your selection, you will need to use the selection modifier
keys on the Vertige™ keyboard. i.e. [+] and [-].
5.1.2 Selecting layers from the layer selection buttons
At any time, a layer or group of layers may be selected by directly pressing one of the layer selection buttons.
There are several blocks of buttons within the Layer section:
• Select layers by Screen
The first block of buttons is used to select/deselect all layers on a given Screen. After using the arrow keys to
navigate to the desired screen, pressing the large LCD button at the center of this group will select all of the
layers on the desired screen on Program or Preview.
For example, if you press Screen 2, all of the layers on screen 2 will be selected.
• Select layers by Layer depth
The second block of buttons is used to select/deselect all layers at a specific depth. After using the arrow keys
to navigate to the desired depth, pressing the large LCD button at the center of this group will select all of the
layers at the desired depth on all screens on Program or Preview.
For example, if you press “layer 3”, all layers with the depth 3 will be selected on all screens.

• IN / OUT button:
The IN and OUT buttons helps you to configure the opening and the closing effect of your layers.
The opening effect is used when a layer is transitioning between “empty” and a source, and also between
two sources.
The closing effect is used when a layer is transitioning between a source and “empty”.
As an example: First select some layers, then press the IN button. Various opening effects will be displayed on
the contextual buttons (slide, wipe etc..).
Next, select the desired effect and then the desired direction (left/right/top etc..). The same settings can be
done with the OUT button to configure the closing effect of your layers.
You can also use the fine tuning buttons to modify the start and the end of the opening/closing.
For example, select the desired effect and then set up the start of the opening at 40% and end at 80%. During
the take, this layer will start its effect at 40% of the global take duration and finish at 80% of the global take
duration. This relative timing will occur even if the TAKE is being controlled by the T-bar.
The same timing operations can be configured on the closing effect.

- Yellow color means the screen is ‘active’ (unlocked) and is therefore allowed to make a transition.
- Blue color means the screen is ‘inactive’ (locked) and is not allowed anymore to make a transition or progress
into one.
Note that this state is stored / recalled when saving / loading a preset.
Note that the preset page on the touch screen displays the same screens, and allows you to lock/unlock them
as well by pressing the screen status area.

You can adjust the transition time at any moment, even after loading a preset.
