Infinite Studios Implements Full HD Virtual Studio With Ross Virtual Solutions
Singapore-based Infinite Studios, one of Asia’s leading producers of film, TV, and digital media content, has implemented a full HD virtual studio with an end-to-end solution from Ross Video.
This is the first Ross Virtual Studio in Asia. Ross Video is the only company in the industry to provide a single-vendor turnkey solution with a complete hardware and software solution along with virtual set and augmented reality design services.
The Infinite Studios Virtual Studio includes Ross UX for virtual solutions control, XPression for graphics rendering, a Furio robotic dolly-based camera system, Carbonite with a dual role of switcher and UltraChrome for keying, an NK router along with openGear. Additionally, Ross Virtual Design will also be supplying the virtual set and augmented reality elements, and Ross is providing overall project management through the launch of the studio.
“We’re very excited to implement Ross Video’s virtual set solution,” said Lawrence Ang, Head of Operations at Infinite Studios. “We felt as though Ross was able to meet our needs from end to end, and we can’t wait to see how our various clients are going to use these solutions to enhance their productions.”
Infinite Studios will make use of the full HD, 4K-capable virtual set solution by renting their expansive studio space to clients, who use their studios to produce a wide variety of shows.
As part of the relationship between Ross Video and Infinite Studios, the Infinite Studios Virtual Studio will serve as a Ross Video Demonstration Studio for Ross customers throughout the region.
“Ross is pleased to have such an extraordinary partner to help customers throughout Asia to explore the possibilities available with Ross Virtual Studio solutions, said Dae Choe, Ross Vice President of Sales, Asia. “Our goal is to provide turnkey solutions for our customers, so they can focus on storytelling and not have to worry about technology.”
