Accessible XR events are brought to life with Modulo Kinetic

Modulo Pi has announced the addition of Extended Reality (XR) capabilities to the fully integrated media server solution, Modulo Kinetic. Upgraded with XR features, the new version will simplify the production of virtual and hybrid events and make them more accessible.

Modulo Kinetic is a comprehensive media server solution successfully deployed in large immersive installations, in corporate events and live performances such as the Australian Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. With the advent of the Covid-19 crisis and current social distancing guidelines, the manufacturer developed new XR features in Modulo Kinetic to address the need for virtual and hybrid events. Since last summer, several XR corporate events were successfully produced working with a preview version of the new Modulo Kinetic upgrade.

New capabilities include an enhanced chroma keyer, improved embedded 3D engine and the support of camera tracking for the Panasonic AW-UE150, Stype and Vive systems. Based on these new capabilities, pro AV players will be able to produce virtual events featuring background replacement, extended reality, augmented reality and scenic extension.

“Switching to XR events can be extremely complex and time-consuming when addressed with a suite of separate systems, each one having its own logic and specificities,” commented Modulo Pi founder and CEO, Yannick Kohn. “We believe the approach to XR for corporate events and live performances should remain simple and efficient. As an all-in-one media server platform enhanced with new XR features, Modulo Kinetic proves to be an appropriate solution to produce virtual events, with tools adapted to the mission.”

The ability to add immersive 3D environments, 3D objects and animations together with the ability to switch scenes, contents and cameras in an instant are enriching elements normally encountered in physical events. Virtual events produced with Modulo Kinetic are compatible with LED screen configurations in addition to green screen setups for budget projects. The Modulo Kinetic platform embeds all necessary tools to produce real-time virtual sets. These include pre-visualisation tools for real-time 3D study, simulation and VR, a 3D environment and 3D engine for real-time generative content, an improved chroma keyer, powerful 2D real-time compositing tools, a timeline sequencer and a nodal editor to easily add interactivity in a show. In addition, Modulo Kinetic includes a low-latency live mixer for real-time production, and a UI Designer to create custom control panels compatible with PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices.
