Xconnect offers the next level of digital studio production using real-time visual effects with its incredible virtual studio and augmented reality stage,’ Reality.’ The system leverages various innovative real-time compositing tools and Zero Density’s proprietary keying technology to help create immersive content and reevaluate story-telling in the broadcasting, cinema, or media industry. Today, we’re proud that various leaders in the entertainment & media industry such as Eurosport, Fox Sports, EA Games, and Shanghai Media Group rely on our virtual studio production solutions.
What resulted in the development of Virtual Studio? How has the stage evolved with present trends in the entertainment and media area?
Although broadcasters and manufacturers were hugely in favor of virtual sets, they could not utilize them efficiently. We saw the necessity to solve these issues and attracted the maximum level of quality, ease of use, and incredible visual effects, defining the scene ever since.
Initially founded as an R&D company, we intend to identify gaps in the industry and provide innovative services to meet those gaps.
Reality’ is shooting broadcasting to the next level by providing tools for creating captivating content together with the Maximum photo-realism potential, and in turn, revolutionizing story-telling
There is always a need for appealing methods of story-telling to make a gripping connection with the audience about current trends. The most fitting way to make this happen would be to have visual excellence and premium content. Virtual studio production is taking broadcasting to the next level by offering tools for creating captivating content together with the highest photo-realism potential, and in turn, revolutionizing story-telling.
Xconnect’s Reality Engine is based on Unity and Real system, which provides rendering precision for the 3D environment and will be the world’s earliest real-time, node-based compositor that permits real-time visual effects pipelines. It also enables complex hybrid virtual studio operations by seamlessly blending virtual and real environments. To enhance the effectiveness of virtual studio creation, we have also developed our components/services.
We’re growing quickly and have established our LA, NJ branch lately, along with a brand new release for Data Center. We want to highlight that Virtual Studio and production aren’t a service but a stage that will respond to the evolving demands of the industry with every new release. Shortly, our platform will also target the digital media business, virtual reality services, data centers, unity, and virtual studio production.
Using high-resolution LED screens or projection surfaces in the space, MR makes it possible for actors to be immersed in a virtual environment. Camera tracking technologies enable the information on screens for created in real-time, rendered from the point of view of this camera.
MR is about producing engaging programming, with no need for confidence monitors, no awkward eye lines, or brassy lighting. Guests and interview subjects feel at home inside the area, allowing directors to capture emotion.
The usage of video displays in the area helps overcome a few of the challenges of green display workflows. The lighting feels more natural, such as skin tones, reflections, and transparent objects. There is no need for color keying. Therefore costumes, lighting, and set design can be as lively as you desire, without the need to avoid reference colors.
Virtual studio places that allow real-time collaboration of people and computer-generated environments or objects within a seamless manner are not just new to the broadcasting market. However, what truly makes a show stand out is that the photo-realism it achieves. To everybody’s surprise, the hologram of Hazard fit perfectly in the studio, sitting on a chair and making realistic eye-contact together with the hosts. Imagine an augmented reality-enabled dragon flying into a scene, soaring around as the audiences gasp in utter disbelief and letting a good roar before taking off again. How amazingly impressed the audience must have been by these visual adventures!
We work together with the Disguise at the forefront of these exciting new technologies to provide immersive, believable worlds that take the film beyond LED panels.
Dimension has awakened with DNEG, Unreal Engine, ARRI, Mo-Sys, 80six, ROE and Malcolm Ryan to explore using LED phases and real-time engines for virtual production with Disguise LED Wall. This test, including live actors and imagination, builds on the job Dimension is already doing in virtual production using Unreal Engine.
This technology has been previously utilized in Disney’s The Mandalorian, where the eliminated place shoots.
While the workflow for using real-time engines in virtual production continues to grow, the technology is currently helping unlock productions when it is difficult to acquire shoots.
The cinematic, photo-realistic, reside 3D worlds created by Dimension are ideal for virtual production. Developing a digital set in real-time helps virtual production from pre-viz to principal photography. Disguise LED Wall Scenes running in Unreal include realistic surroundings based on real-life locations, recreated using our photogrammetry pipeline. Employing real-time scenes signifies less of a necessity for on-location filming.
Disguise LED Wall displays run realistic for virtual studio production, complex scenes generated in the Unreal real-time engine. Building vast sets in real-time let us fix lighting and add CGI or cartoon; effects that are time-consuming and risky on a live set. They can capture numerous collections, surroundings, landscapes on a single stage. Creative decisions could be made and actioned in real-time.
The LED platform features screens provided by 80six, including a 2mm thick display along the back along with a 3mm lightweight carbon merchandise along with the ceiling. Side displays for adjustable light and reflection are a 5mm outside product, brighter than other displays. Mo-Sys VP Pro real-time tracking works with Unreal Engine and ARRI cameras to help render the view shown on the LED screens.
Celebrities are filmed performing in the space created by the surrounding screens. This technology implies there isn’t any demand for a green screen that must be substituted in post-production without a back projection.
