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.
