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, Ascender 16, SmartMatriX Ultra,
NeXtage 16 or NeXtage 08 systems, independently or simultaneously in any kind of combination, including
Soft Edge Blending. Vertige™ also supports linked LiveCore™ devices (additive modularity), LiveCore™
Expansion modules and synchronized LiveCore™ devices (associative modularity).
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” handles one or several identical devices that can operate on the same screens.
Vertige™ can handle several assemblies.
SCREEN: A “Screen” is a destination where a picture will be displayed. For example, it could be a single display
or a projection surface composed of one or several outputs. Each screen might use one or several layers.
CONFIDENCE SCREEN: A “Confidence Screen” is a destination (single display or more) usually dedicated to
the speaker/presenter, which can display the content visible to the audience and more.
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 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 be loaded to a LiveCore™ device using the Web RCS.
SOFT EDGE: Soft Edge blending technology is used to compensate overlapping video projectors displaying
content on a surface. 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).
MATRIX ROUTER: A “Matrix router” is a device allowing to route video signals to multiple destinations on
demand. It provides a 1-1 (router) or a 1-n (router & splitter) distribution. With the Vertige™, it will extend
the total number of streams available to several LiveCore™ devices.

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.
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 (Freeze, 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 displaying the numpad is contextual: it 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
and sliders for transitions. Sliders are motorized in
order to see the current state of the selection.
8- Control Transition
The ALPHA button will be used to switch the Transition section to ALPHA:
- When the ALPHA mode is disabled (key backlight turned off), sliders allow to individually mix each screen
-W
hen the ALPHA mode is enabled (key illuminates in RED), each slider is assigned to a selection of layers
and allows to control their master opacity (transparency).
The CUE SEQUENCE button is used to switch the Control Transition section to CUE SEQUENCE mode in order
to control the cue sequence playback.
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.

4.1.8 Matrix configuration
Vertige™ can control one or more matrix routers and allows dynamic routing of the video signals to the
LiveCore™ devices inputs according to your screens content.
If your setup includes one or more upstream matrix routers, you need to:
- Create and configure the matrix routers properly (type, LAN settings …)
- Map the matrix outputs to the LiveCore™ devices inputs
Create and configure at least one matrix stream for each matrix input signal you want to use
To ensure clean switching between matrix streams, Vertige™ automatically ‘freezes’ the corresponding input
on the LiveCore™ devices during the routing. Note that the routing time may vary depending on a range of
factors (type of the matrix, type of the signal, HDCP, …). This routing time can be configured globally for a
matrix or finely tuned for each matrix stream if necessary.
• If you want to preserve the ability to make seamless transitions while using an upstream
matrix, then the total number of different matrix streams displayed on Preview AND Program
should not exceed the total number of physical links between the matrix and the LiveCore™
device.
• In any situation, the total number of different matrix streams displayed on Preview OR
Program should not exceed the total number of physical links between the matrix and the
LiveCore™ device.
29
4.1.8 Matrix configuration
Example 1: One single device assembly (NeXtage 16).
In this setup, an 8x8 SDI matrix increases the number of SDI signals available on the LiveCore™ device. With
4 links between the matrix and the LiveCore™ device, up to 4 different matrix streams among the 8 can be
displayed on Program. When more than 2 layers are transitioning between different matrix streams, the
Vertige™ will temporarily hide the layers.
30
4.1.8 Matrix configuration
Example 2: One assembly with two synced LiveCore™ devices (associative modularity).
In this setup, an 8x8 SDI matrix increases the number of SDI signals available and distributes them on each
LiveCore™ device. With 4 links between the matrix and each LiveCore™ device, up to 4 different matrix
streams among the 8 can be displayed on Program. When more than 2 layers are transitioning between
different matrix streams, the Vertige™ will temporarily hide the layers.
31
4.1.8 Matrix configuration
Example 3: One Ascender 16 assembly and one Ascender 48 assembly.
In this setup, an 8x8 SDI matrix increases the number of SDI signals available and distributes them on each
LiveCore™ device. With 2 links between the matrix and the Ascender 16, up to 2 different matrix streams
among the 8 can be displayed on Program. When more than 1 layer is transitioning between different matrix
streams, the Vertige™ will temporarily hide the layers.
With 6 links between the matrix and the Ascender 48, up to 6 different matrix streams among the 8 can be
displayed on Program. When more than 3 layers are transitioning between different matrix streams, the
Vertige™ will temporarily hide the layers.
Furthermore, an 8x8 DVI matrix router distributes the content for the native layer on each LiveCore™ device,
and allows to switch between 2 computers. Note that switching between the 2 native matrix streams will
produce a non-synchronized “CleanCut” effect on each part of the native layer. Switching to a native frame
stream first is recommended.

5.1.1 Selecting layers from the touchscreen
5. OPERATING THE VERTIGE™
5.1 Layer section
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:
Note: the small layer stack located on the bottom left hand corner of each screen might help you to
visualize the layer selection.
5.1.1 Selecting layers from the touchscreen
At any time when the Preset Page 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.
Important: Selecting a single layer on the touchscreen synchronizes the front panel screen & depth filters
(buttons turns YELLOW to indicate that the corresponding values match the current layer selection).
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 front panel
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 (or its native layer when the Native mode is enabled).
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.
When the Native mode is enabled, all buttons used to select/deselect a specific depth are
useless and turned off.
48
5.1.4 Using the layer selection modifier keys
5.1.3 Selecting layers on Program vs Preview
At all times of operation, the focus of the preset editing will always be on either Program or Preview. If you
are working on Program, the large PROGRAM button will be lit, and the Program section will be highlighted
on the touchscreen. If you are working on Preview, the PREVIEW button will be lit, and the Preview section
will be highlighted on the touchscreen.
Based on this selection, all operations such as preset loading, source selection, layer selection, etc will be
directed to the Preview or Program.
5.1.4 Using the layer selection modifier keys
The Layer selection modifier keys allow you to quickly adjust your selection of layers:
• NATIVE button:
The NATIVE button allows you to toggle between a standard layer selection and a native layer selection.
By default, the Vertige™ is in a standard layer selection mode (button is lit green). If you press the button, the
native mode becomes activated (button is lit yellow).
• SINGLE button:
The SINGLE button allows you to select only 1 layer. This layer to be selected is at the intersection of the
SCREEN button and DEPTH button. For example, if the SCREEN button is 2 and the LAYER button is 3,
pressing the SINGLE button will select the layer 3 on the screen 2. Using the left and right arrows, you can
adjust the screen number or the depth number.
• ALL button:
Press the ALL button to select all standard layers on all screens. When the Native mode is active, pressing the
ALL button will select all native layers on all screens.
• NONE button:
Press the NONE button to deselect all layers. When the Native mode is active, pressing the NONE button will
deselect all native layers.
• [+]:
Press and hold the [+] key to add layers to the current selection. While holding the [+] key, any new layer
selection from the touch screen or layer selection buttons will be added to the currently selected layers.
For example, select your camera layer 1 then hold the + button and select all others camera layers.
• [-]:
Press and hold the [-] key to remove layers from the current selection. While holding the [-] key, any new layer
selection from the touch screen or the layer selection buttons will be removed from the currently selected
layers.
• Examples:
Select the main layer on Center screen
To select the main layer on the center screen (screen 2 in this example), there are several options, depending
on your preferred work style:
Since you are selecting only one layer, you could quickly select it using the touch screen.
You could also navigate the SCREEN selection button to the center screen, navigate the LAYER selection
button to the Layer 1, and then press the SINGLE button in the Layer selection area.
You could also select all of the Layer 1 layers, and use the [-] key to deselect the unneeded layers.

5.2.1 Making live switches directly to Program
In many cases, it is preferred to make all of your selections and edits on the Preview, and use the TAKE or
T-bar to transition your Preview to Program. The Vertige™ will allow you to work on Preview, or directly on
Program.
To work directly on Program, select a layer on Program using the touchscreen, or press the PROGRAM
button.
While working on Program, you can switch inputs in any selection of layers instantly with a cut. When switching
cameras for live entertainment, you may wish to utilize the instant cut between sources by switching directly
on Program.
You can also load presets or make any other layer parameter adjustments directly on Program.
5.2.2 Switching between plugs on the device inputs
The Vertige™ will allow you to create streams and sources to select each of the different input plugs. These
should be created in the Assembly setup, and assigned to the keys in the Source setup. However, use this
with caution.
