Mixed Reality

Mixed Reality (MR) is a next-generation process for film, broadcast and live event production. MR combines camera tracking and real-time rendering to create an immersive virtual environment, visible live on set and shot directly in camera.

Immersive production

Using high resolution LED screens or projection surfaces in the space, MR allows actors to be immersed in a virtual environment. Camera tracking technology enables the content on these screens to be generated in real-time, rendered from the point of view of the camera.

Engaging programming

MR is all about creating engaging programming, with no need for confidence monitors, no awkward eye lines or unrealistic lighting. Guests and interview subjects feel at home within the space, giving directors the opportunity to capture raw emotion.

More natural lighting

The use of video displays in the space helps to overcome some of the challenges of green screen workflows. Lighting feels more natural, including skin tones, reflections and transparent objects. There is no need for colour keying, so costumes, lighting and set design can be as vibrant as you wish, without the need to avoid reference colours.

Virtual environments

The screens within the space only need to be as large as the performance area; virtual set extension places the actors in virtual environments that are much larger than the available studio environment.
