Cine Video Expo in Lisbon (organized by CineGuia) had another participation from VANTeC.
The event took place in the Lusófona University pavillion where VANTeC presented the Studio2Go Portable that had been presented at the IBC in Amsterdam in September, for the first time.
Studio2Go is an all-in-one system oriented towards live productions, which allows the insertion of SDI or HDMI video signals, and mix these same signals with remote cameras or NDI cameras. It also allows insertion of 2D graphics, recording of up to 4 simultaneous channels, preparing lists with highlights, outputting video and web streaming.
The integration of an innovative studio is now finished, where it is possible to produce virtual set designs, augmented reality, motion capture-generated virtual characters interacting with real actors, all live in real time.
“ETIC approached VANTeC in late 2017 with the intention of creating an innovative studio with complex and unusual requirements.” Refers Alexandre Roriz, CEO of VANTeC. “The idea would was to be able to produce in real time, without the need for post production, content that involved virtual set design, augmented reality, virtual characters, preferably interacting with real actors. The challenge was considerable. We researched the various options on the market, some of the solutions we worked with for several years, but their integration was not obvious. ”Alexandre Roriz set the school's goal by mentioning that“ ETIC's board wanted to ensure that students in these courses could reach by the end of their course and having finished projects they could show and that required a production environment that allowed for what was required. ”
João Robalo, VANTeC’s Project Manager for this project concludes that ”VANTeC collaborated with The Future Group that owns Pixotope, the powerful Unreal Engine based engine to find a solution. Xsens motion capture suits and Stype camera tracking systems have been integrated as well as a host of other solutions to ensure that what they wanted could be achieved live! ”
The studio was opened on 9/25/2019, the 25th anniversary of ETIC, and was attended by the Secretary of State for Education, Prof. Doctor João Costa.The studio has 3 studio cameras, all with full tracking movement, including a 4 meter crane. Studio camera tracking affects the entire virtual set, including the virtual characters while motion capture data affects only the characters, allowing them to move in real time within the virtual scene, and calculated by the same engines.
The control room is complemented by a Ross video switcher and Xpression character generator also integrated by VANTeC in partnership with Datos Media.The project was successfully completed, with the new system in place on time, and the success of the deployment was due to the hard work and cooperation between the ETIC and VANTeC teams as well as Pixotope, Xsens and Stype.
VANTeC was present at this year's IBC and was exhibiting at the Danmon Group stand located in hall 8. VANTeC was showcasing the new Studio2Go Portable system, a carry-case box featuring an all-in-one production system that lets you mix SDI, HDMI, network or NDI signals, launch on-air graphics, record multiple channels and stream to multiple platforms.

WTVision has purchased a camera robotics solution for its recent virtual studio serving Eleven Sports. In a small space it was possible to create a multi-faceted studio with plenty of production capacity and without any human operated cameras. The chosen solution was Telemetrics, VANTeC’s tech partner since 2007. The system includes two conventional pedestal mounted robotic pan/tilt heads and a third camera mounted on a lifting column pan/tilt head that moves on a ceiling mounted rail.The system also includes an advanced robotics controller where shots and motions can be recorded for future use, and where it is possible to control the movement of any camera at any time.The project served for wTVision to integrate Telemetrics tracking protocol with their own graphics engines.
