Brainstorm, a specialist company dedicated to providing industry-leading real-time 3D graphics and virtual set solutions, will be demonstrating the InfinitySet, an award-winning Augmented Reality and Virtual Set solution on Questek’s stand. Already considered the most advanced solution for Virtual Set production because of the acclaimed TrackFree™ technology, InfinitySet 3 has a new set of tools and features which further improve its graphics capabilities.


New graphics toolset

At MediaTech Africa, Brainstorm will showcase the enhanced InfinitySet virtual set solution with advanced graphics features. InfinitySet 3 not only seamlessly integrates Aston projects, but now also includes all the graphics editing and creation features of Aston so it can edit, manage and create 2D/3D motion graphics when required. As much Augmented Reality content requires advanced graphics features to guarantee the accuracy and realism of the result, InfinitySet 3 now takes advantage of the Aston graphics creation and editing toolset to achieve this. This allows for direct editing of not only Aston projects but the individual elements, animations, StormLogic, data feeds, etc., as if they were in Aston. And even for the creation of new elements within the composition, changing the attributes and much more. This means that in broadcast operation, or while on-air, InfinitySet 3 operators will be able to adjust any object in the scene, even those with added properties such as animations or external data feeds.


Improved Augmented Reality features

InfinitySet features a vast Virtual Set toolset including industry-first technologies such as 3D Presenter, TeleTransporter, HandsTracking and FreeWalking, all of them taking advantage of Brainstorm’s unique TrackFree™ technology. With InfinitySet 3, this technology has been pushed further to create new features that improve InfinitySet’s Augmented Reality features, such as VideoGate and VideoCAVE. The new VirtualGate feature allows for the seamless integration of the presenter not only in the virtual set but also inside additional content within it, so the talent in the virtual world can be teletransported to any video with full broadcast continuity.

Brainstorm has developed InfinitySet to be the most advanced, state-of-the-art Virtual Set and Augmented Reality solution in the market. With the new features and improvements the InfinitySet 3 being showcased at MediaTech Africa 2017 demonstrates new levels of complexity and realism, resulting in an impressive visual experience, which can be further improved in the future by using additional hardware such as VR glasses.
