disguise is publicly releasing its extended reality solution as part of its r18 software launch.
The technology was first used in 2020 for a performance by Katy Perry on American Idol.
disguise xR integrates with leading LED, real-time content and camera tracking technologies to power immersive virtual environments. As it’s technology-agnostic, the solution allows users to choose the tools they want to create their story.
The release of r18 will also include the debut of disguise’s cluster rendering feature, developed in partnership with Unreal Engine. The feature unlocks “limitless possibilities for immersive content of the highest quality, detail and frame rate at any scale,” said disguise. Users can deliver photorealistic scenes to large scale content displays on any surface from installations to corporate displays.
r18 users will also enjoy fully support the ACES cinematic standard, enabling users to own the content colour management process and trust the composite onto the final screen to render dynamic and visually engaging output.
“After more than three years in the making, we are incredibly proud to be bringing our ground-breaking xR solution to the public,” says disguise CEO Fernando Kufer. “With xR there are truly no creative boundaries as we’re allowing anyone to build their stories with the tools they want from one single space. It has truly become the platform of platforms for immersive virtual productions.”
