Mixed reality studio with gesture recognition launched in Europe

VR VISIO, a Poland-based indie virtual reality studio, has opened a mixed reality studio — the first of its kind in Europe to be able to record live videos in virtual 3D spaces during both standard recording and streaming. It makes it possible to shoot, live stream and record virtual reality promotional videos while the actor is interacting with virtual environments.

The actor can see the virtual environment on a screen and can interact with it during filming, and is then added to the viritual reality video.

“The user sees the environment on a screen in front of him, behind the camera man,” “We also use small screens attached to the camera, so he can see the environment while shooting dynamic shots,”  Szymon Wegner, the studio’s marketing manager told Hypergrid Business.

Unlike with other studios, theirs does not require use of virtual reality headsets to record, live stream or shoot the videos.

“This allows us to shoot much more than game trailers,” said Wegner.

The company can shoot 360-degree promotional videos, conference presentations, product demo videos, video marketing campaigns and live stream video conferences and virtual webinars. Customers can also choose from a variety of available 3D environments, including the summit of Mount Everest, or can request to have a custom environment made for them. VR VISIO then adds special effects and other graphics.
