InfinitySet 3 showcases its acclaimed new features at IBC2017


After its presentation at NAB with great success, Brainstorm’s InfinitySet 3 is ready to
make its European debut at IBC 2017. Already considered the most advanced solution
for virtual set production because of the acclaimed TrackFree™ technology, InfinitySet
3 showcases its new set of tools and features which further improve its graphics
capabilities, and transforming InfinitySet 3 into one of the most compelling Enhanced
Reality solutions in the market.

New graphics toolset

InfinitySet 3 now also includes the graphics editing and creation features of Aston so
it can edit, manage and create 2D/3D motion graphics when required. As much
Augmented Reality content requires advanced graphics features to guarantee the
accuracy and realism of the result, InfinitySet 3 now takes advantage of the Aston
graphics creation and editing toolset to achieve this. This allows for direct editing of
not only Aston projects but the individual elements, animations, StormLogic, data
feeds, etc., as if they were in Aston. This means that in broadcast operation, or while
on-air, InfinitySet 3 operators will be able to adjust any object in the scene, even
those with added properties such as animations or external data feeds, without having
to do so in a separate Aston application.

Improved Augmented Reality features

InfinitySet 3 will demonstrate support for 3rd party render engines, with the focus on
gaming and architectural engines such as the Unreal Engine. As it is integrated with
the Brainstorm eStudio render engine, this allows InfinitySet 3 to control in real-time
the Unreal Engine’s parameters to include real-time graphic elements such as 3D
motion graphics, lower-thirds, tickers, CG and many other, within a precisely rendered
and realistic background scene, allowing for the creation of amazing, hyper-realistic

InfinitySet 3 features a vast virtual set toolbox including industry-first technologies
such as 3D Presenter, TeleTransporter, HandsTracking and FreeWalking, all of them
taking advantage of Brainstorm’s unique TrackFree technology. With InfinitySet 3,
this technology has been pushed further to create new features that improve
InfinitySet’s Augmented Reality features, such as VideoGate and VideoCAVE.
Especially interesting is the VirtualGate feature, which allows for the seamless
integration of the presenter not only in the virtual set but also inside additional
content within it, so the talent in the virtual world can be teletransported to any video
with full broadcast continuity.

“Following the excellent feedback InfinitySet 3 received at its introduction at NAB, we
are excited to be showcasing this impressive range of new Augmented Reality
features at IBC, which will allow our customers to reach new levels of creativity in the
design and build of their program content,’ says David Alexander, commercial director
of Brainstorm.
