Infinity Set is designed to cope with any need from advanced tracked virtual sets to inexpensive trackless environments, and seamlessly integrates 3D graphics in the Virtual Set. With virtually infinite virtual cameras and the industry-first TrackFree technology which allows combining tracked and trackless techniques in the same camera for further flexibility, Infinity Set is the most advanced solution for broadcast design and virtual set production. It combines the raw power of the eStudio engine and the simplicity of use of EasySet to create a new environment for next-generation cross-media broadcast requirements.
Infinity Set is designed to cope with any requirement from advanced tracked virtual sets to inexpensive trackless environments. With practically infinite cameras and the industry-first TrackFree technology which allows combining tracking and trackless environments for further flexibility, Infinity Set is the most advanced solution available today for broadcast design and virtual set production. Infinity Set combines the power of the eStudio engine and the simplicity of EasySet 3D to create a new environment for next-generation cross-media broadcast requirements. Now with Version 1.2, Infinity Set allows importing Aston 3D compositions and other 3D objects in a variety of 3D file formats.
Infinity Set takes realism to a new level, as it can generate a true 3D representation of the live character from a video feed, generating a realtime 3D volume which is continuously regenerated, repositioned and remapped based on the image coming from the camera. This patented technology also allows the character to cast real shadows over virtual 3D elements while interacting with any element in the scene. The advanced compositing features of Infinity Set allow designers and producers to create truly realistic real-time 3D scenes where the different elements behave like those of the real world, not like video layers or the classic chromakeyed image over a background.
Infinity Set can handle multiple input sources, no matter if they are real cameras or video feeds, and the resulting scenes can be as complex as required, with multiple elements interacting in the virtual set.
In addition, Infinity Set includes a complete real-time 3D graphics toolset, allowing for the seamless integration of 3D objects within the scene, and imported from a variety of third-party packages. Aston 3D compositions can also be included, controlled and edited, even with external data sources for data-driven graphics such as bars and pie charts, statistics and many more. Infinity Set also allows external data to interact in real-time with the graphics within the scene or the virtual studio itself.
Also, these objects can be edited and further animated within Infinity Set to create complete productions and shows, and played out directly from Infinity Set or controlled by external applications such as OnDemand.
Infinity Set features new tracking technologies that allow merging the best of both tracked and trackless worlds while including new possibilities for advanced Augmented Reality applications.
TrackFree is a totally new and revolutionary approach to virtual set production developed by Brainstorm. It is a camera-tracking independent technology which combines in a single virtual camera the precision and higher quality of the most complex camera tracking systems with the flexibility, freedom and ease of use of modern trackless systems such as EasySet 3D. TrackFree can be used in combination with the integrated internal chroma key software or external chroma key hardware, even within the same production. The whole composition is created within Infinity Set embedding the keyed feed into the virtual set, as opposed to standard chroma key layering, where the image is presented as a live sticker. Now, as the keyed image is an object within the scene, it can cast shadows over other 3D elements in the scenario and interact with them in the 3D space.
Combining all the above allows Infinity Set to be used in multiple operational modes such as Billboard, Projection, Automatic Tracking and TrackFree. This makes Infinity Set the ideal product for Augmented Reality applications, taking it to a new level of complexity, realism and data display never seen before.
With Infinity Set, real-time tracking data embedded in real cameras and post-production tracking data included in pre-recorded video, can immediately be applied to the parameters of the virtual cameras.
This allows for the seamless combination of 3D virtual sets with real characters and pre-recorded video feeds, all moving together with precise perspective matching. This is thanks to the TrackFree technology and because of the combination of the tracking data of the video feed and the virtual set, permitting:
- Real-time insertions of the live character in a live event.
- Real-time insertions of the live character in an event that happened in the past.
- Real-time insertions of a prerecorded character in an event set to happen in the future.
