Together with our cooperation partners LAVAlabs Moving Images and ETC Entertainment Technology Concepts we have developed a Virtual Production Space in our MMC Studios.
With Virtual Production, the digital setting is superimposed directly on the set via a high-resolution LED wall, which is fed in real time with highly complex 3D rendering technology. The advantages of this innovative technology are manifold: The Virtual Production Space makes the production completely independent of time-consuming travel activities, weather conditions or filming permits and the actors act in an authentic atmosphere instead of in front of the green screen.
