Live performances as precise as an edited music video.
CuePilot lets you perfect a performance. It's a tool for creativity and delivers high production value.
In pre-production you can build a rundown of acts and be creative planning the camera coverage and special effects. Add reference media like a clip of the choreography and the music track to your timeline. Build a shotlist, adding shots and camera notes.
The application is easy to learn and intuitive to use. Collaborate with lighting and content teams and view your planned camera coverage in previsualisation software. Add cues for performers and stage staff, as well as OSC, GPI and MIDI cues.

Create a Shotlist
Plan the camera coverage, in reference to the choreography and music by adding vision cues to the act's timeline
CuePilot is a cloud-based application allowing several users to work on the same project and its acts at the same time. Users can also work offline if no internet is available, and when the user is online again, all data will be synchronised with the server - and with the other users working on the same project.
Play out the planned camera coverage using OSC or MIDI with pre-visualisation software integration to visualise a performance's camera coverage.
CuePilot in the Studio
The CuePilot application will be running on an S6 Studio Server, Nexus Studio Server, or a laptop with a BOB unit, becoming heart of the operation.
Studio Server Connections
The vision switcher connects with RS422. Timecode sources connect with LTC. GPI devices connect with XLR. The cue screen output is through HD SDI. Network devices connect over ethernet.
Enable Studio Server Features
Vision switcher control is enabled, on ME/AUX/PGM channels. CueApp Server is enabled for CueApp devices on the local network to connect in studio. PTZ, OSC, GPI and MIDI can be enabled to connect more systems.
The incoming timecode, usually from the audio department or EVS. is played, triggering the CuePilot to play through the timeline, cutting the cameras on the vision switcher and CueApp shows countdowns for each individual camera.
It's easy and intuitive to make adjustments and modifications. All changes will be synchronised with all users.
CueApp devices are connected either using local network over a Wi-Fi or a wired network. This enables all users to see their cues and customise their view to show just the information relevant to them.
CuePilot controls the vision switcher, executing the camera cuts. The camera team are cues through CueApp, with their own personalised shotlists.
You are always in control, use CuePilot to cut on ME1 and take over on PGM should the unexpected happen. Speed up or slow down cues if you're not working with timecode.
