VIEW is a breakthrough in lyric presentation and video/picture playback  applications.


With the power to satisfy both the audience and the performer, VIEW makes it simple to create spectacular visual effects with scrolling lyric display.

VIEW utilizes the same script based cueing system as the rest of the Stagesoft production suite, making it simple to place Video and Lyric display cues directly into the script, making it possible for the entire crew to know exactly where and when the cues are going to execute, allowing for greater collaboration among the team.


Easily show different content on different screens.VIEW guides you through the creation of multiple outputs.  Each screen can operate independently, allowing you to create confidence monitor views with more information and notes than the audience sees. Engage your audience with moving backgrounds and video content easily shown on any combination of outputs.  Want to use an old LCD monitor in a crying room? No problem.  VIEW supports different resolutions on each output screen, backgrounds will scale and text will wrap to display correctly.


You can display different lyrics and backgrounds on each screen, with complete script synchronization!  This is great for displaying lyrics in multiple languages at the same time, English on the left screen, Spanish in the middle, and French on the right!


Media content is added to layers. The layer size, position, 3d transform and color can be manipulated as they are rendered into a workspace.

Outputs are created by sampling rectangles of pixels from a workspace.  The sampled rectangles can be color corrected, transformed, scaled, warped, blended, and masked independently. Outputs can be made up of many sampled rectangles if needed. Effects can be applied at each stage along the way (layers, rectangles, outputs and the workspace).

VIEW supports multiple layers of background content.  This allows you to create impressive effects like:

  • Your logo floating over a video background,
  • Display of different content in each corner of an output screen,
  • Applying a semi transparent gradients over an image/video to create an area with more contrast to display your lyrics in.

VIEW’s scrolling lyric display makes it easier for the audience and talent to follow along.  It is easy to add cues to your script that start and stop lyric display in your script  You can decide how many lines of text show up for each screen, select font styles, and text colors to match the mood you are trying to create.  It is even possible to have different fonts on each output.
