This year at the 2020 NAB Show, Brainstorm, an award-winning virtual set and augmented reality solution will deliver the best rendering quality, including real-time ray tracing, PBR and HDR. Brainstorm is a leading manufacturer of real-time 3D graphics and virtual studio solutions, and at the 2020 NAB Show in Las Vegas, it will showcase InfinitySet 3.1, the latest version of its award-winning augmented reality and virtual set solution. Version 3.1 introduces a plethora of high-end, advanced rendering features that, in addition to its Combined Render Engine with Unreal Engine, allow InfinitySet to create the most realistic content for virtual and mixed reality, virtual sets, real-time postproduction and film pre-visualization.
InfinitySet takes full advantage of the latest hardware developments found in NVIDIA RTX GPU technology, to deliver the best rendering quality available in the market. In addition, by using NVIDIA RTX GPUs, InfinitySet can deliver real-time ray tracing, which provides a much more accurate rendering, especially with complex light conditions. Ray tracing offers more natural, more realistic rendered images, which is essential for photorealistic content generation.
Using these technologies along with other advanced rendering capabilities like the Combined Render Engine with Unreal Engine, PBR materials, and HDR, InfinitySet can create virtual content that can’t be distinguished from reality. This opens the door for content providers to use InfinitySet to create amazingly rendered backgrounds and scenes for drama or even film production, significantly reducing costs while opening new sources of revenue. For other broadcast applications such as virtual sets or augmented reality, InfinitySet provides unmatched, a hyper-realistic quality both for backgrounds and graphics.
InfinitySet performs at its best within complex broadcast environments, working as a hub system for a number of technologies and hardware required for virtual set and augmented reality operation, such as hardware chroma keyers, tracking devices, cameras, mixers and many other. This puts InfinitySet firmly at the centre of the virtual operation as well as transcending the real-time broadcast boundaries by entering the drama and film markets by providing real-time virtual production capabilities.
Héctor Viguer, Brainstorm’s CTO and Innovation Director, says: “Because of Brainstorm’s continuous innovation, InfinitySet is ahead of the game in terms of flexibility, feature set, and content quality. Its latest features, coupled with the amazing hardware innovations provided by NVIDIA, provide unseen possibilities for advanced content creation and virtual production in broadcast, drama and film”.
InfinitySet will also showcase a new module to enhance presentations by creating advanced AR content using material from any presentation tool, such as Microsoft PowerPoint or Adobe PDF, and including keyed talents. For News, Shows or other content involving talents and additional AV material, this module simplifies content production by creating a new interface that minimizes complexity in the setup and display of the different assets that integrate the presentation/show: slides, pictures, movies, PDF or PPT presentations, 3D objects and many more, including Aston projects and forms.
Brainstorm is a 25-year-old specialist company dedicated to providing industry-leading real-time 3D graphics and virtual set solutions for broadcast, feature film production and corporate presentations.
