disguise and global LED display manufacturer ROE Visual have announced a new partnership that aims to further enhance the development of “game-changing technology” to equip the virtual production studios of the future.
In 2020, disguise launched its extended reality (xR) workflow that allows creative and technical teams to render photorealistic graphics content from engines like Unreal Engine on LED surfaces developed by companies like ROE Visual.
With the help of camera tracking technology, these graphics can then be displayed in-camera as real-time, 3D, photorealistic environments that immerse actors, artists, presenters as well as the audience watching in a whole new visual world.
ROE Visual and disguise technology workflows have featured as an integral part of hundreds of immersive and real-time productions around the world including TV Azteca’s coverage of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, Billie Eilish’s ‘Where Do We Go’ live streamed concert, and the 2020 League of Legends World Championship esports event, among others.
The enhanced partnership will see ROE Visual LED solutions powering the expansion of disguise offices around the world with immediate effect, including disguise xR stages and innovation ‘hubs’ launching in Beijing, Seoul, New Zealand and Hong Kong towards the end of this year.
In addition, disguise will employ its xR workflow, including VX media servers and the RX range of render nodes, to run ROE Visual showrooms in The Netherlands, the US and Japan, with the project kicking off in the next few months.
