The Future Group and Arraiy have announced a collaboration to deliver AI-based real-time VFX solutions for broadcast and entertainment.
The Future Group’s Pixotopeä live virtual production system includes native Unrealä rendering. It will be integrated with Arraiy’s DeepTrack AI-based camera tracking to deliver a complete software-based real-time VFX solution.
The integrated solution will also incorporate sub-pixel accurate camera and object tracking, along with powerful workflow tools.
In the last quarter of 2019, Arraiy will release DeepMatte (real-time matting without green screen) and DeepDepth (real-time z-depth extraction and occlusion solving), both of which will also be integrated to Pixotopeä.
Halvor Vislie, The Future Group CEO, said: “In Arraiy we have found a partner that shares our vision of what the media and entertainment industry will look like in the months and years to come.
“Their machine learning based tools will change how people create and capture visual effects, and together we will change what media and advertising will look like in the near future.”
Mark Tobin, Arraiy CEO, added: “We are excited to partner with The Future Group and believe that together we have a truly innovative 100 per cent software-based solution for virtual production.
“Our products are completely synergistic, and together we can enable our customers to make new and innovative real-time content without the burden of huge capital requirements. DeepTrack is fully compatible with Pixotope providing a seamless experience for our customers.”
