Final rendering in Smode Station is performed live and continuously: any modification in the composition is reflecting immediately onto the output.

It can output up to 6x4K outputs in real-time, integrates well into complex show environments (MTC, LTC, Artnet, UDP, Tracking...). It has tremendous video playback capacities (read 13x 4K HAP video layers @ 50fps) and can be used at all steps of complex video projects, from the call for tender to the final playback.
