IBC 2016: Brainstorm’s New Infinity Set Set To Star
Brainstorm Multimedia will showcase at IBC 2016 the virtual presentation called From Leonardo to Ricardo, an amazing visual history of virtual technology from its origins in the 15th century to the present day. This presentation, originally showcased at NAB 2016, introduces the latest features of Brainstorm’s Infinity Set virtual set application enhanced by graphics and other content created with Aston, Brainstorm’s 3D graphics and CG solution.
Brainstorm will demonstrate the latest developments of Infinity Set, its award-winning virtual set, which further enhance the patented TrackFree technology. TrackFree is a completely new approach to virtual set production that combines the cost and simplicity of trackless systems with the advanced camera movements of the tracking environments to provide users with a previously unavailable third option for their virtual studio requirements.
Infinity Set’s HandTracking feature, which enables presenters to trigger animations and graphics with the simple movement of their hands, is the latest of the jaw-dropping features made possible by TrackFree. Top of the list of these features is TeleTransporter, Brainstorm’s revolutionary ‘virtual traveler’ feature used to outstanding effect during the latest Spanish general election, where a live presenter was teleported inside the main Congress Chamber of Spain during the election night coverage. The 3D Presenter is another unique TrackFree-based feature that generates a true 3D representation of the live presenter. This enables the talent to cast virtual shadows and reflections over other real and 3D objects within the virtual environment, greatly enhancing the realism of the program content.
Another game changer that will be showcased at IBC is Aston Elections, the most cost-effective elections graphics solution available. Thanks to over 20 years of experience that Brainstorm has in delivering election projects including to a large number of major broadcasters worldwide, Aston Elections is an extremely user-friendly and intuitive application intended for graphics coverage for broadcast elections. It can be used either as a standalone solution or combined with the Infinity Set 2.0 virtual studio application within a virtual environment.
Brainstorm’s family range of products will be completed with the demonstration of eStudio V14, the latest version of the fastest, most powerful and flexible render engine on the market, and also Aston, Brainstorm’s cutting-edge real-time 3D graphics creation, CG and playout solution. Celebrating 40 years since the first Aston was launched, the current generation of products is the most powerful and versatile 2D and 3D graphics solution available today.
