WATCH: Vu partners with Nikon for virtual motorcycle at CES 2023

Nikon MRMC and Vu showcased virtual production at the booth

For those of you planning your virtual production experience at InfoComm…

“The Unreal Ride” — An interactive user experience

In addition to cutting-edge imaging products such as the flagship full-frame mirrorless camera, the Z 9, Nikon showcased “The Unreal Ride”  — a demonstration of the power of motion control and virtual production.
“The Unreal Ride” will take participants into an immersive virtual production experience, capturing a video of themselves moving through a virtual environment as if it were the real thing. Participants will sit on a custom-made futuristic motorcycle prop against the backdrop of a giant LED screen. When captured through the lens it will appear as if they are riding through the virtual environment. The ride is captured by MRMC — A subsidiary of Nikon, using a  Bolt X  high-speed camera robot against an LED volume, with the video footage captured by the Z 9.

The Bolt X horizontal arm reach extends 3.2 metres from the rotate center and has a vertical travel of nearly 5 meters, starting from its lowest position to the maximum height of 4.3 meters, allowing for greater flexibility in capturing shots at high speed in the studio and at location settings.
