Showgoers can learn all about the latest Porta 2.2 graphics controller and experience disguise’s end-to-end platform on five booths

LONDON September 13, 2023 — disguise, the leader in real-time production technology and broadcast content services, is omnipresent at this year’s IBC conference in Amsterdam. Visitors can expect to experience disguise’s end-to-end solutions and services at not one, but five exhibition booths plus several speaking sessions showcasing how the disguise platform for content experience and graphics production drives broadcast productions fit for the future. A show highlight will be the launch of disguise’s Porta 2.2 broadcast graphics controller as a single platform for show graphics (CG), MOS newsroom templates, augmented reality (AR) and extended reality (xR) that can easily be combined with existing broadcast workflows and tools.

“We are excited to bring the future of broadcast to IBC by showcasing our end-to-end solutions along with our world-class creative services,”  says disguise’s VP of Broadcast David Jorba. 

disguise’s Creative Services team specialises in creating engaging data and content visualisation graphics, for the world’s leading broadcasters all the way from concept to on-air. They have executed high-end and photo realistic visualisation for NBC, Univision, DAZN, CNN and many broadcasters globally.

“Our end-to-end broadcast solution makes any concept possible. We have the latest and greatest tools empowering streamlined workflows combined with the vision and expertise to help broadcasters engage audiences like never before,” says Jorba. 

Porta 2.2: Unlocking seamless broadcast workflows with Unreal Engine graphics

IBC attendees will be the first to learn about disguise’s latest release of the Porta controller. The release unlocks support for Unreal Engine’s Motion Graphics, enabling broadcasters to control all their graphics types – AR, xR and motion graphics – through one single user interface from the cloud or on-prem. This innovation reduces roundtripping – streamlining workflow, tools and operations.

The disguise team will be at the INFiLED stand 2.B43 to lift the lid on Porta 2.2 and answer any questions.
