Collaboration with Epic Games for next generation, photorealistic augmented reality including real-time relighting and depth demos. Ncam, producers of augmented reality for television and film, will be demonstrating advances in creative capabilities at NAB, taking place from 16 to 21 April 2016 in Las Vegas.
By combining Ncam’s technological capabilities with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, augmented reality takes a massive leap forward into photorealism.
“It is clear from discussions with customers, studios and productions, especially around episodic television, that there is demand in augmented reality for set extensions, virtual environments, pre-visualisation and finished visual effects,’ said Nic Hatch, CEO of Ncam. “To do that convincingly calls for photorealistic graphic elements that audiences believe to be real…And to get photorealism in real-time means tapping into the power of games engine technology.’
