Fall 2021 HoloSuite Update Includes Advanced Audio Support and an Improved User Interface; Free to Subscribers
Today at Augmented World Expo (AWE) 2021, volumetric video pioneer Arcturus unveils the latest update for its industry leading HoloSuite tools, adding full support for Scatter’s 3D capture software, Depthkit Studio. Now, content creators of all sizes — from established commercial production studios, to artists and researchers prototyping in volumetric capture for the first time — can capture, edit and distribute their volumetric projects using one pipeline, making it easier than ever to create holograms for augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), framed media, 360-degree spatial videos and more.
“Volumetric video is changing the very nature of how we consume media, and the faster we can get the right tools into the hands of the next generation of creators, the faster everyone will benefit,” said Kamal Mistry, CEO of Arcturus. “By working with companies like Scatter, our goal is to bring humans into the metaverse by streamlining the creation and distribution process. That starts with building a powerful end-to-end pipeline from capture to post-production and streaming.”
With the volumetric video market expected to surpass the $5 billion mark in the next few years, content creators need a simplified method for capturing, editing and distributing volumetric video. Thanks to this new partnership, Depthkit Studio users can now upload their volumetric video footage into HoloEdit, where it can be refined and polished, and users can add additional touches, including interactive cues. The video can then be compressed and exported for direct distribution, or uploaded to game engines for further integration into existing projects and environments.
