Nationwide U – Now Offering Notch Fundamentals
Nationwide U is happy to announce that we are now offering Notch training courses.  Notch is a real-time content generation tool that allows artists to realize their vision with no technological compromises at the “speed of live”.  In addition to concerts and live events, Notch has been the preferred platform for virtual production and xR.  Notch, used in the Groundbreaking Katy Perry xR performance as seen on American Idol, is the go to or preferred platform when creating interactive content, events and installations.  “With a platform this powerful, its imperative that we offer NW clients the education needed to add Notch to their portfolio of talents” says Kevin Ring the National Training Manager for Nationwide University.  Notch is a fantastic platform available for use with Disguise, TouchDesigner, Pandora’s Box, Pixera, and more. The Disguise GX2 includes a Notch license allowing for a playback of Notch Blocks.  With the addition of Notch trainings to our existing Disguise server rental and sales business, we continue to add to our 360 degree full service promise to our clients. “It’s awesome that Kevin is making these courses a part of the growing service offerings now available from NW.” says Brad McMartin our National Customer Service Manager.
