A new way to capture people for immersive applications
Tribe of Pan developed a pioneering stereoscopic volumetric camera system for capturing people for use in AR & VR applications.
Combining the strengths of 3D cinematography and depth cameras, our system can produce an incredibly vibrant and live-like video that expresses a spirit and sense of humanity that even the most sophisticated photogrammetry based solutions cannot capture.
Unlike big volumetric stages, Tribe of Pan's stereoscopic volumetric capture is a mobile system, easy to travel with and set up even in small spaces.
WHAT IS VOLUMETRIC VIDEO?
Volumetric video is a technique that captures moving images of the real people and objects that can be watched from different angles. Unlike the regular video, it allows user to move naturally around the subject: to lean in, to move away, side ways etc. (known as "six degrees of freedom", 6DoF). This means that when you are virtually present with the subject - you can recreate the movements of a natural interaction, which enhances the immersion tremendously.
OUR STEREOSCOPIC VOLUMETRIC CAPTURE SYSTEM
Our system balances the strengths of the mono-sensor with the fidelity of stereoscopic capture. As filmmakers, this has allowed us to capture the most authentically feeling interview footage ever put in the virtual reality. It's easy to travel with and deploy just like a standard full body video interview set up.
INCREDIBLY REALISTIC QUALITY
Our process results in very high image quality of the captured subject.
Through our process we recreate natural skin rendition, subtle highlights in the eyes and the details of each strands of hair - necessary to make faces feel alive.
MOBILE & EASY TO DEPLOY
Our system was developed to have a small footprint and not overwhelm the subject.
No more complex than a regular full-body interview, we can set it up wherever required. it's small enough to travel anywhere - whether another city or another country, and it's very quick to set up.
AFFORDABLE WITH QUICK
Our system doesn't require complex mathematical formulas from processing dozens of cameras and terabytes of data.
Unlike other solutions, we can record uninterrupted for hours at a time and economically viable to process all the footage.
