Disguise xR powers the 20th Anniversary Honda Civic Tour


Honda fans got a preview of the all-new 2022 Civic during a live streamed concert from a Grammy and Academy Award-winning artist. The 20th Anniversary Honda Civic Tour, broadcasted on Twitch, was powered by Disguise xR with changing virtual landscapes enhancing the artist’s performance and sharing the first glimpse of the new car.
In this case study you will discover how the project’s creative and technical partners Sixdegrees, Immanent and All of it Now (AOIN) used the Disguise xR workflow to deliver the real-time, live worlds for the unforgettable livestream.

The challenge

Sixdegrees had four to five months to determine how to create the virtual production elements and choreograph them live with the lighting, music and the unveiling of the new car. The project was a major production with 150 people involved and 95 people on set.

“For the Honda Civic Tour we thought that xR was the right way to bring some of the excitement of a live event to fans but with a new canvas that brought together the music, the performance, and rich, virtual content. It created something different from what we are used to,” noted Juan Santillan, Executive Producer with Sixdegrees.


The solution

xR experts AOIN used a Disguise vx 2 media server as the director to render the xR feeds and a vx 4 to render the LED video wall and floor feeds. An rx machine was used in the uncompressed 25G mode, along with Mellanox MSN2010 switches, to achieve better image quality and colour reproduction. Since failover was not an option on the live broadcast, a second vx 4 and an additional rx machine were run in separate sessions in case the primary server had any issues.

Using xR tools [for a live performance] was definitely a step forward for the team, and so many people helped us make sure there was a smooth transition into that workflow. We were able to create real-time rendered content that could be adjusted on the fly. Disguise has the highest set of standards for this type of production. I can't imagine doing this event without it.
