VYV was created in 2004 by Emric Epstein, M.Sc. Computer Graphics, Martin Granger-Piché, M.Sc. Computer Graphics, and Pierre Poulin, Ph.D. Computer Graphics and University Professor. The mission of the company is to provide flexible and interactive video projections tools to respond to the increasing needs of the industry in this field.
The company began with projects with Cirque du Soleil (Bar du bout du monde, 2004, Cirque’s Torrida Grand Prix Party, 2005, and Delirium, 2005-2006). The idea to create Photon, a flexible 3D interactive media server, came from the experience learnt from these projects; we decided to address these issues to create the most powerful real-time video control system. These issues were: latency created by chains of video devices, lack of precise and simple projector calibration in complex installations, limited resolution of video playback, compression issues, and lack of synchronization in video playback.

Since its creation, Photon has been used in many international shows, tours, and permanent installations such as Franco Dragone The House of the Dancing Water 2010, Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson One 2013, IRIS 2011, Zarkana 2011, Totem 2010, and Delirium 2006-2008, Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour 2014, Britney Spears Circus 2009 World Tour, Alicia Keys As I Am 2008 World Tour, Justin Timberlake Future Sex Love 2007 World Tour, Robert Lepage’s Dragon Bleu Theater Tour 2008-2013, National Museum of Singapore 2006-2011, SAT Montreal Dome Projection…

Over the years, VYV’s team has proven able to deliver reliable, adapted and innovative solutions to the challenging requirements of multi-video projections for live shows. Photon has evolved into VYV’s star product, and its integrate d hardware/software solution has demonstrated its flexibility in many situations, while maintaining its careful design.
