ARRI is a shareholder in the Volucap Studio which is the first high-resolution, volumetric production facility dedicated to film and TV applications of its kind internationally. Recently opened in 2018, the Volucap Studio, located in the Babelsberg Studios in Potsdam, Germany, represents the next generation of 360° VR/AR production facilities supporting the trend for enhanced interactive and authentic content experience. Using Volucap’s unique 360° dynamic stage lighting system, people and objects can be scanned three-dimensionally, creating hologram-like representations that can be processed like computer-generated models. Immersive and interactive video with 360°/VR/AR functionality is a form of content that goes far beyond of today’s companies live and streamed 2D productions.
