Virtual Studio

The virtual studio is a form of video technology that makes it possible to combine physical objects with digital 3D objects in a virtual scene. Instead of constructing prototypes in wood and other materials, the scene and a prototype (if necessary) can be created by using digital 3D objects.

The virtual studio at CAVI is a blue screen studio with three walls, a floor and several objects in blue, with the movements and properties of the camera being registered by motion tracking. This makes it possible to move the camera and make recordings in real time, with physical objects (people, for instance) being combined with this virtual world. The virtual studio can be used as a tool for creating virtual video prototypes and conducting design workshops in which digital 3D worlds can be incorporated.
