As in a real-life studio, the 3D City Virtual Studio always takes the ideas and requirements of stage design as its basis for production (briefing). Following this, blue-box recordings are assembled in the 3D Virtual Studio (either in real-time or at a later time).
The difference is that the actual "manufacture" of the stage design takes place exclusively in virtual space. This means it is a replacement for real-life stage design, not just doing away with the major part of the costs usually linked to real-life stage construction but also extending the possible repertoire of visualisation options. It is therefore particularly interesting for applications in productions with a lower budget.
The modular structure allows for “previously produced” objects to be recycled, i. e. existing elements can be taken from a “library”, eliminating the need for storage space and associated costs and maintenance expenses.
Benefits and uses
- Conceptualisation and realisation of the stage design are one single process -> no cost for real-life stage construction
- Modular structure; recycling of "pre-produced" objects is possible without additional costs
- More Visualisation options through constructions, materials/ textures, colours and lights, camera settings, video screens etc.; visual upgrading at low costs
- Size of the virtual studio does depend on the size of the blue box, any requested modifications are possible (also in real time "on site"); high degree of flexibility
- Instead of many interfaces and contacts, all come from a single source; time savings through optimised processes
- Brodcast-ready video output
Conclusion: High quality and flexibility with time and cost savings.
