Protec adds a Notch to its belt
UAE: Protec recently invested in 10bit Technologies’ real-time visual effects software, Notch, reportedly making it the first company in the Middle East to acquire the solution. The A/V production company used the Middle East Event Show as a platform to introduce the solution to the region.
Notch is described by 10bit Technologies as ‘the first tool that enables you to create interactive and video content in one unified real-time environment’. It is designed to enable users to create interactive content and live video effects as well as a workflow for creating, simulating, rendering, compositing and editing with ease. Protec chose to add the software solution to its inventory due to a reportedly increased demand for such a real-time visual effects solution and plans to integrate it with BlackTrax and d3 media servers.
The Middle East Event Awards also form part of the Middle East Event Show and this year’s edition saw Protec receive three awards. The Protec team won in the categories of Best use of Event Technology – Product for its use of robotics, Best Event Video Solution for the opening ceremony of the Dubai Water Canal, and Best Temporary Venue or Structure for the IDEX 2017 opening ceremony.
‘These awards are a testament to their conviction and belief in their own creative strengths and in trusting us to partner them to create great events in this ever growing region,’ said Protec CEO and founder Stephen Lakin. ‘We are humbled by the awards we have won and would like to thank our clients for their continued faith in our abilities.’
