r18-acesOver 165 disguise xR stages have been built in 35 countries
UK - Nearly a year after Katy Perry’s virtual performance at the American Idol Season 18 Finale, disguise has announced the public release of its Extended Reality (xR) solution as part of its r18 software launch.
The xR workflow utilised by XR Studios to power Perry’s performance has opened up a new world of opportunities in immersive real-time production in the past year, offering a safe and innovative alternative for shows and live events, allowing these to resume virtually, says the company.
Backed by the Carlyle Group and Epic Games, disguise has powered over 230 productions across live entertainment, film and episodic TV, corporate events, and TV and sports broadcast to date. Over 165 disguise xR stages have been built in 35 countries to support the growing demand.
First introduced at the IBC Show in 2018, disguise xR has since undergone intensive field testing and refining as disguise collaborated with a select group of its creative and technical partners to turn xR into ‘a robust, reliable and flexible solution for productions of any scale or complexity’.
“The xR workflow is making complex things a lot easier. We can implement xR and AR into our disguise workflow and programme complete shows including content and live inputs,” says Pim Elberse, light & video programmer at i!-Studio and disguise xR insider. “We see a lot of future in xR - this will change our work in the future.”
“After more than three years in the making, we are incredibly proud to be bringing our ground-breaking xR solution to the public,” says disguise CEO Fernando Kufer. “With xR there are truly no creative boundaries as we’re enabling anyone to build their stories with the tools they want from one single space. It has truly become the platform of platforms for immersive virtual productions.”
