WaveForm: Remote Video Blending for VJs Using In-Air Multitouch Gestures

Amartya Banerjee, Jesse Burstyn, Audrey Girouard, Roel Vertegaal

We present WaveForm, a system that enables a Video Jockey (VJ) to directly manipulate video content on a large display on a stage, from a distance. WaveForm implements an in-air multitouch gesture set to layer, blend, scale, rotate, and position video content on the large display. We believe this leads to a more immersive experience for the VJ user, as well as for the audience witnessing the VJ's performance during a live event.
