Interactive Mixed Reality is here
Live television shows are more and more often mixed in with augmented reality: background and studiosets that only exist in the computer, dancefloors that move, and adverts that appear in the middle of a soccer field. Born at the intersection of visual effects and live production The Future Group has pioneered the use of real-time visual effects to produce cutting-edge cross-reality productions and technology.
In this talk, CEO Halvor Vislie will not only show the cutting edge of media production, he will also outline the consequences for future programs – when live video is combined with live computer graphics, new business models quickly become a reality – and new formats will be born. Halvor will give us an insider look at the creative and technical processes involved in using mixed reality to communicate information and stories in ways not previously possible without a Hollywood blockbuster production budget.
