With easy access to the computer vision library OpenCV and depth cameras (Kinect, RealSense,…), vvvv is a loyal companion for prototyping your computer vision applications and installations.

With its no-code user-interface it allows you to quickly achieve your goals with just a few mouse clicks. Applying video filters, detecting motion and even using latest machine-learning powered techniques like YOLO, to label things in a video stream, becomes accessible to everyone.


What the vvvv?

vvvv is a visual programming environment that allows you to realize ideas quickly without the need to write any code. But if you want, you can also write C# code for it and use any .NET library with it! To give you an idea of the areas vvvv can be helpful in, here is a list of buzz words vvvv is often associated with:

  • Generative Design
  • Interaction Design
  • Data Visualization
  • Computer Vision
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Physical Computing
  • Projection Mapping
  • Show Control

You will learn how to:

  • Work with the visual programming environment vvvv (gamma)
  • Use the powerful computervision library OpenCV in vvvv
  • Apply filters to video or still images
  • Detect motion in images
  • Do background subtraction for tracking
  • Detect things in images with YOLO
  • Batch-process still images


  • Bring a Windows laptop
  • Bring a 3 button mouse
  • No prior knowledge of vvvv needed

Curator Educational Program, Workshop Host


Joreg is co-founder of vvvv.org and visualprogramming.net and core-developer of vvvv where he is mostly concerned with UI, UX and library development.

Besides he teaches, works for money under the label checksum5.com and is otherwise concerned with the integration of sound, image and computer code.

For NODE he co-curated the educational program for all previous NODE Forum for Digital Arts festival editions. The program was focusing on vvvv and vl workshops, bringing together users who want to share their expertise with those eager to learn.
