Our Solutions

XR

Extended Reality

Pixotope's XR solution provides proprietary, off-axis rendering and mapping capabilities. Our software allows users to output their rendering to LED screens and volumes, which utilizes our standard Pixotope workflow. Our WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) editor requires no baking or compilation when it comes to making changes to your content.

AR

Augmented Reality

Pixotope offers a holistic AR solution for virtual production, so that you can focus on what you do best--creating experiences that delight your audience.

VS

Virtual Studios

Pixotope includes all the virtual productions tools you need--including Rendering, high-quality Keying, Image Mixing, Lens Calibration, Camera Tracking server, Deinterlacer, Data integration, and much more.

XR has been gaining a lot of traction in the recent years, especially in the virtual production industry. Ironically, it’s also a consuming term for many people. According to the VP Glossary, which was created by the Visual Effects Society and the American Society of Cinematographers, defines Extended Reality (XR) as “an umbrella term for virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR), and all future realities such technology might bring.”

While this a rather broad definition, the glossary does equate XR to VP. However, XR is more commonly used to describe the use of large LED volumes to create virtual environments that can be interacted with.

The Pixotope solution for XR is a proprietary off-axis rendering and mapping solution for rendering outputs to LED screens and volumes, part of the standard Pixotope workflows, including our WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Editor, which requires no baking or compilation when making changes to the content.

Create virtual environments that allow real interactions

To effectively use Pixotope’s XR solution, users can easily drag in an “XR Wall” into their virtual environment, which can be used as a representation of a physical display screen.

An XR solution with an advanced suite of feature to help ease your operations

  • 10-bit uncompressed video workflow, with full-color management support via OCIO/ACES
  • Low latency due to no requirement for an external media server
  • Drive multiple LED from a single or multiple machines
  • Fully integrated AR and VS workflows to seamlessly combine techniques for virtual set extensions, etc
  • Advanced capability to configure how the rendered image is mapped on your outputs
  • Full-color grading per output for accurate color matching
  • Ability to turn off tone mapping to avoid double gamma
  • XR Overscan for blending inside and outside camera views
  • Automatically Optimize Camera Rotation and FOV
  • Render Outside Camera View, Renders an environment quality version of the areas of the scene, which are outside the camera’s view (frustum)
  • Ability to control the update frequency of Outside of frustum rendering
  • Support for XR DLSS supersampling.  Double the performance with no visible loss of quality.
  • Support for virtual camera moves while using XR

Augmented Reality (AR) provides an interactive experience that combines the real-world and virtual content. A great example of this would be the virtual counterpart of the NFL team Carolina Panthers’ mascot. The infamous panther was seen jumping around their stadium and tearing up their competitor’s flag.

With AR technology rapidly evolving over time, AR is now more accessible and affordable for smaller productions and projects.

Pixotope for AR: Powering the future of storytelling

Pixotope offers a holistic AR solution for virtual production, so that you can focus on what you do best–creating experiences that delight your audience.


Powered by Unreal Engine’s platform capabilities, Pixotope is built with a fully native implementation of Unreal for all workflows—unlike those legacy CG systems that are an Unreal plugin renderer. Our software ensures that you won’t need to compromise on your productions’ quality or performance.

Key features include:

  • Unique WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) live feedback editor

  • Single panel configuration and operations for multi-camera/render productions, with auto-discovery

  • On the fly configuration 

  • On the fly switching of levels

  • Premade and easy to use control panels for all objects in the level, color correction, and image effects 

  • Unique Drag and drop control panel builder for mobile and desktop devices via a web browser on the local network

  • Procedural high-quality text generation for live animated 3D texts, flying logos, and much more 

  • Timecode triggering, from external LTC or embedded in the video

  • Automatic Render API for data integration and automation, giving remote access to any part of the Unreal Engine

  • Datahub, a highly efficient databus enables extremely low latency interactions and synchronization in multi-camera systems

Virtual production is able to launch your storytelling into a whole different stratosphere. With VP, you’re able to turn concepts and data into an interactive experience. The best part? Virtual sets allow you to change your production on the fly without needing to sacrifice quality and performance.

With Pixotope, broadcasters can create immersive, hyper-realistic narratives without worrying about budget. Our software ensures that you don’t any specialized equipment or expensive production stages.
