Better Live Graphics

Holographics is an application for Windows & Mac that enables you to quickly create live graphics like lower-thirds, messages, ticker tapes, clocks, logos etc. It can be easily added to projects of all sizes. Styling is done with CSS-based themes and operation is simple and quick.

Features:

  • Free!
    If all you need is 1 widget (like a lower third), Holographics is free. If you need more, rent a license for 1 month or buy.
  • No coding, no designing, no special hardware
    You can be up-and-running with custom graphics in less than 5 minutes with Holographics, no preparation is required.
  • Works with OBS, V-Mix, Wirecast, Xsplit, CasparCG, Livestream Studio, etc...
    We are VERY compatible.
  • Widgets
    Every 'element' you want to add in your overlay, is a widget. Clocks, lower thirds, messages, ticker tapes are some of the default widgets included, but you're free to create your own!
  • Themes
    Graphics are styled with themes, which are simple CSS files. Anyone who knows CSS will be able to create a theme for you, or hire us to do it!
  • Animations
    You can choose the animation that happens when a theme appears or disappears.
  • Custom everything!
    If the many preset options are not enough, Widgets (JavaScript & HTML), Themes (CSS), Animations (JavaScript) can all be customized! If you don't know someone experienced with these languages, hire us instead! 😇
  • Trigger with OSC
    OSC support means Holographics can be integrated with almost any broadcast solution.
  • Live graphics in any resolution or aspect ratio, HD, 4K, 8K...
    All our graphics are vector based, that means they can be used at any resolution and stay sharp! Not just that, widgets are positioned intelligently. If you're using a strange screen aspect ratio, they will responsively adjust.
  • Helpful and frequent updates
    Holographics is far from a finished product, we work hard every day to improve it. Regular updates are a big part of that, as you can see from our changelog.
  • Support for Bitfocus Companion
    A Holographics module is present in any of the latest versions of Companion.
  • API & SDK
    For advanced useage, there is a full API and SDK available.

API & SDK {}

Our API and open-source NodeJS SDK allow you to integrate Holographics with just about anything. You don't even need the full version, the API is fully functional with the free version.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it really support 8K?

Well, we didn’t test it. But since it’s all just a browser window it should just work. If it crashes it’s Floris’ fault. @florisporro on Twitter.

Can I use it to create graphics for toe wrestling?

Whilst you could create graphics for any sport using custom widgets, Holographics is designed to do basic graphics really well. Other applications out there are more suitable for sports.

What technologies were used to build Holographics?

We use a NodeJS web server, Electron for app packaging and updates. VueJS is used to drive both the render engine and the client side. HTML is pre-processed with Pug and CSS is pre-processed with Stylus.

What limitations are in the free version?

You can access all the same widgets and themes as in the pro version and there’s no watermark. The only limitation is you can have a maximum of 1 widget active at once, and data-driven widgets (such as lower-thirds) are limited to 10 data entries.

Theme (insertthemename) is ugly!

Floris’ fault. @florisporro on Twitter.

Does Holographics have OSC / Companion support?

Yes! Check out our section on integrations in the docs

How do I use it with Key & Fill?

Currently you need to use an external app to generate key & fill signals. This is possible with V-Mix, OBS, CasparCG and Wirecast.

Can I integrate Holographics with my own projects?

Yes! Holographics has a full HTTP REST, Socket.io and OSC API. Documentation is available here, and a full Node SDK is available here.

I’m confused! Is it Hologfx or Holographics?

Ah what do we know! Holographics.com was taken so we went with this instead. Besides it sounds techy and cool. Feel free to use either.

How many machines can I activate on 1 license?

2 machines. You can deactivate your other machines remotely if you’re short a license.

Can I activate Holographics offline?

Unfortunately not, an internet connection is currently required to activate Holographics. If you buy Holographics V1 it will remain activated forever. Subscription-based licenses need to check-in every month.

I need to install Holographics in a fixed installation with no internet!

Buying Holographics V1 is probably your best option, once activated it will keep working even if it doesn’t get a connection to the internet.
