Liminal Entertainment Technologies announced the latest version of ZoomOSC, which allows users to integrate Zoom with third-party software and hardware for innovative event design, reactive programing, and remote control of participants.
ZoomOSC 4.0 (ZoomOSC Graphics Package) enables broadcasters, virtual event organizers, entertainment professionals, and other video producers to maximize their control of Zoom, the web-conferencing platform and elevate the production quality of their events.
The application is used for virtual theater, conferences, and online escape rooms. Version 4.0’s added features expand opportunities for use in broadcast, education, business, concerts, and more.
Key features and capabilities of ZoomOSC include the ability to:
- Connect hardware controllers to Zoom, with support for StreamDeck(BitFocus Companion), OSC devices, and MIDI controllers (with OSC conversion).
- Integrate with media servers for sequential cueing, triggered playback, and dynamic integrations, particularly Qlab, Isadora, and OBS.
- Gain advanced control over video/mic devices, audio levels, and meeting roles in webinars.
- Create, preset, and efficiently transition between “super sources” in Zoom with multi-pin and multi-spot support for multiple participants onscreen side-by-side.
- Automate Zoom controls with live meeting feedback, including chat messages, participant names, active speaker, and meeting status.
- Facilitate cloud deployment of Zoom.
- Access a more versatile interface that enables integrators to incorporate Zoom into their professional production workflows.
In this latest release, Liminal expanded its free ZoomOSC application (now called ZoomOSC Essentials) and launched ZoomOSC Pro, a paid tier for $35/month or $350/year that unlocks additional features, including remote control of other users (currently in beta) as well as the ability to receive enhanced real-time feedback from Zoom for reactive programming. This output feedback is particularly significant as it expands opportunities for users to develop their own custom Zoom integrations on top of ZoomOSC.
