▶ How does the solution work?

 • PTZ cameras transmit real-time positioning data 

 • Pixotope virtual set production software

Pixotope is built for on-air use, enabling rapid design and deployment of virtual, augmented, or mixed reality content. 

 • Create a virtual camera in Pixotope software

Dynamically moving the camera position within a 3D virtual space requires the exact synchronization of the PTZ camera with the virtual production system. Lumens cameras transmit exact positioning data with extremely low latency into Pixotope.

 • Pixotope software enables the perfect fusion of reality and virtual worlds

Pixotope creates high-resolution live images at high refresh rates to deliver very realistic results 

 • Lumens LC200 for live streaming and recording

▶ Why Pixotope

 

Photo realistic rendering

Pixotope utilises Epic Games' Unreal Engine to produce photorealistic rendering in real-time. Create virtual sets, virtual environments, and augmented content, with terrain and foliage, with particle systems, and with simulated cameras and lenses.

Rapid design and deployment

Pixotope is built for on-air use enabling rapid design and deployment of virtual, augmented, or mixed reality content. It enables users to configure, create, and control, any kind of virtual production from a single user interface.

WYSIWYG Editor

Featuring intuitive editing tools, Pixotope harnesses the real-time power of the Unreal Engine to create anything from a single camera project, to a live multi-camera virtual studio production, all at cinematic quality.
