IBC 2017: Brainstorm to showcase enhanced AR, template-based/graphics management solution
Brainstorm will be exhibiting at IBC 2017 and showcasing the latest versions of its product line of virtual sets and motion graphics solutions. IBC will see the world premiere of Neuron, Brainstorm’s all-new broadcast graphics management solution, and also, for the first time in Europe, the company will show VisualMedia, a 3D real-time graphics visualization product based on social media feeds.
Virtual and Augmented Reality enhanced solutions
At IBC 2017 InfinitySet 3 will make its European debut and will be available to deliver after the show. InfinitySet 3 includes a number of advanced graphics features, as it now incorporates the Aston graphics creation toolset so it can edit, manage and create high-end 2D and 3D motion graphics with total control.
InfinitySet 3, along with advanced rendering features such as PBR and HDR, also supports the Unreal Engine, which can be combined with the Brainstorm eStudio engine to create output with many possibilities. This Combined Render Engine feature simplifies setup as it does not require additional hardware such as studio mixers, and can be easily integrated into any broadcaster’s existing installation.
InfinitySet 3 will also show the new Augmented Reality features which were acclaimed at NAB, such as the VirtualGate capability which integrates the presenter not only in the virtual set but also inside additional content within it, and VideoCAVE, a Mixed Reality application using monitors in a real set performing as a CAVE multiple window. Also, thanks to the TrackFree technology and its TeleTransporter feature, InfinitySet 3 can interchangeably use real, live input or pre-recorded footage as the background environment for the chroma-keyed talent. This functionality permits a remote talent to become a virtual traveler and be tele-transported to any location at any time, while interacting with real and virtual elements thanks to the unique 3D Presenter feature, which transforms the talent into a full 3D object.
Neuron: Broadcast graphics management
Brainstorm will introduce Neuron, a new integrated, MOS-compatible template-based system that allows for complex graphics integration not only in the newsroom, but also in most of the common broadcast workflows, enhancing the newsroom with the support of continuity and broadcast traffic as well. This solution builds on the experience gained with BrainNews which is the company’s graphics for news application, and now transcends the newsroom to become a MOS-compatible on-air graphics control system that enables the integration of Brainstorm’s powerful real-time high-quality 3D graphics engine into the broadcast workflow without the need for continuous input from designers.
