Pixotope has joined forces with LED volume manufacturer Unilumin to create purpose-built XR solutions for the broadcast industry.
Unilumin’s LED volumes have been used on The X Factor and Sky TV’s sport studio, and feature a high-tech small-pixel design that preserves image output quality in XR environments. The partnership provides an advanced XR solution in a simple-to-deploy turnkey package, said the companies.
The two companies will showcase their partnership at ISE in Barcelona, where Pixotope XR Edition will power a two-wall Unilumin LED volume XR stage with its graphics and camera tracking capabilities.
Pixotope CEO Marcus Brodersen said: “This partnership enables us to achieve our mutual goal of making extended reality more accessible to the broadcast market. By cross-leveraging our individual expertise we’ll be able to problem-solve and optimise to make such workflows more streamlined and efficient.”
“Pixotope is an ideal complementary partner for Unilumin,” added Jaelyn Li, general manager of Unilumin Rental Industry. “Their XR Edition removes much of the complexity and guesswork around XR, which allows users to tap into the creative potential XR stages without needing engineering expertise or bespoke solutions.”
