Volumetric video

Volumetric capture technology is exciting. We're doing a lot of experimentation here at AVM.

What might documentaries look like in 3D? Holographic video offers one possible answer: non linear, immersive, interactive and transformative.

The technology isn’t yet perfect, but it really does deliver something different to a game engine. A tangible feeling of the imprint of life? Maybe, for the dystopians and Dostoevsky fans out there, meeting yourself in 3D is spooky.

There are several different approaches being explored with pros and cons and heavyweight backers. Our friends at the Experimental Foundation have a lightweight solution, easy to set up and simple to produce, the trade off for quality is that you can stream it live.
