The Future Group has received funding to develop a new virtual production cloud solution which it says will enable companies to connect to the power of live virtual production through a ‘pay as you go’ and always available cloud service.
Pixotope Live Cloud has received development grants from the Epic Games MegaGrants fund and Innovation Norway, and is described as a world first.
The solution is built on the company’s virtual production technology and includes ultra-low latency point to point streaming for interactive multi-site virtual studio, as well as broadcast industry-standard support for Video over IP, and direct to distribution streaming.
Features also include embedded metadata streams for telemetry and other synchronisation critical components, a cloud-enabled Digital Asset Management system and a cloud-enabled platform API for integration with 3D-party systems.
Speaking about the new solution, Marcus B. Brodersen, CEO of The Future Group, said, “We are making virtual production more accessible and giving streaming and broadcast production companies more flexibility in how they tell engaging stories.
“Unreal Engine is the perfect vehicle to drive innovation in media production, and Pixotope is all about making that power available to as many media producers and creators as possible. We couldn’t ask for better collaborators than Epic Games and Innovation Norway to give even more content creators access to these storytelling tools through Pixotope Live Cloud.”
