What are the
benefits of sensorless virtual camera control?
Sensorless camera control means more visual variation with much
less time and effort. All camera motions and switching between
shots are accomplished by manipulating the 3D virtual set itself,
rather than the actual physical cameras. Each physical camera is
assigned to a specific shot (establishing shot, medium shot, two or
three shot, close up or over the shoulder close-up) and then locked
into place, without the need for a camera operator at each
perspectives with user-created icons:
All actions required for production–camera switching,
inserting and moving 3D objects with animation, for example--can be
translated into icons using the programmable authoring software,
HotAction. This gets live shows on air quickly--simply select the
desired Action icons from the prepared list.
perspectives in real time using a joystick:
Track and control sensorless cameras in real time within the
virtual space. With joystick operation, camera movement control is
just as smooth as a mechanical tracking unit. There is virtually no
limitation to the degree of freedom of movement.
In the real-world setting, multiple viewpoints with large sweeps in
a limited space are still difficult to achieve with real tracking
sensors--or even with X-Y robotic systems. That prevents users from
tapping the full potential of mechanical tracking to enliven the
production. In contrast, Virtual Studio’s sensorless tracking
technology creates scenes with attention-getting visual variety,
like those below, with infinite perspectives from multiple
What are the
possibilities for creative video display?
With its ability to play or feed video onto a virtual video wall or
virtual monitors, Virtual Studio opens up a whole new world for
your viewers. The advanced method requires neither complicated
rendering nor an external mixer. This approach saves a lot of
bandwidth, allowing you to show at least three live videos (SD, 2
HD) concurrent with the actor, and more than three full D1 video
files simultaneously on video walls or multiple virtual monitors.
Play a file simultaneous with the chromakeyed actor without using
any extra video servers. Our Virtual Studio not only saves storage
space, production time, and money. You’ll experience a new
level of flexibility and capability as it improves broadcast
quality while using interactive 3D effects. Video effect over live
What effects can I add?
Add 3D video texturing to your show! All video can be manipulated
to twist, fold, revolve, burst into bits, etc.
