Plazamedia and Vizrt Show Germany’s First Real-time 3D Stereoscopic HD Virtual Studio

Plazamedia (Munich, Germany) is not an average production house. With a long list of outdoor, studio, and sports productions created for customers around the world, the company also is well known for using its Open Houses as sneak previews for the most exciting developments in the industry.

“We knew that Plazamedia planned to demonstrate its new real-time HD virtual studio. So we thought, why not take it one step further and create all the scenes in 3D?” explained Gerhard Lang, Chief Engineering Officer,Vizrt.

The result of the cooperation allowed Plazamedia to promote not only the company’s new HD virtual studio and HD master control room, but also Germany’s first 3D HD virtual studio, powered by Vizrt technology. The December Open House was the public premiere for the new setup.

Instead of seeing the usual flat TV picture, Vizrt’s real-time renderers created stereoscopic images that were used to create an illusion of depth. Using special 3D glasses, the guests could see moving 3D content on a typical TV screen. The installation was done without the special stereo cameras normally needed for 3D demonstrations. Vizrt’s stereoscopic rendering ensured that the on-camera talent remained properly situated within the 3D scene.
