“With the lighting equipment, ARRI is already making a significant contribution to the studio's performance,” emphasizes Dr. Johannes Steurer. He also sees further points of contact at ARRI: “In the field of post-production services, the proximity to Volucap enables the consistent implementation of demanding VR and AR projects for film and industrial customers. For the Camera Systems division, Volucap provides the application scenarios and important impulses for the further optimization of the recording technology.”
Albrecht Gerber, Brandenburg´s Minister of Economics and Energy, officially opened the studio, which is funded by the state of Brandenburg with approximately two million euros from the Digital Hub Initiative. He praised Volucap as a “great showcase project” with “enormous economic potential.” On this occasion, actress Emilia Schuele was the first actress to be recorded in 360 degrees so that she could later be digitally staged.
