Ross Video Teams with UNREEL to Create Virtual Set Solution for XPression

Ross Video has integrated its XPression broadcast production graphics platform and Furio robotic camera heads with the UX virtual-set control software from UNREEL.

The integrated virtual-set solution leverages UNREEL’s new UX touch-screen virtual-set management software. Integrating this technology with XPression’s real-time rendering capabilities produces sophisticated virtual sets that enable camera movement around the set while keeping the talent and other foreground elements locked in place within the virtual 3D environment. At NAB 2012, Ross will demonstrate a full virtual set with Ross Robotics Furio head on tracks with automated moves that include simultaneous changes to camera position, elevation, pan, tilt, and zoom.

“This integrated solution tells the world that XPression can now do high-end virtual sets with camera tracking,” says Brian Olson, Marketing Product Manager at Ross Video. “We are thrilled to be collaborating with UNREEL to bring this to our customers around the world.”

The “UX – UNREEL Xperience – Virtual Set Solution for XPression” includes camera tracking and touch-screen interface. Services include complete studio build-out, production crew, and creative development.
