Brainstorm is a specialist company dedicated to providing industry-leading real-time 3D graphics and virtual set solutions for all broadcast graphics types and workflows, as well as for feature film production and corporate presentations. With more than 2,500 installations worldwide since its foundation in 1993, Brainstorm’s customer list includes many of the world’s leading broadcasters plus smaller and regional stations.
Brainstorm’s flagship product eStudio is considered one of the industry’s fastest on-air graphics and virtual studio engines. With headquarters in Spain and subsidiaries in the US and Asia, Brainstorm is a company with a global reach and committed to innovation.
Brainstorm has developed plugins to allow the export of Photoshop files with layers, Illustrator vector paths and After Effects projects into the Brainstorm ecosystem. They translate the Adobe files so they can be opened using Brainstorm’s real-time 3D graphics and virtual set solutions, allowing for a more flexible broadcast workflow.
Forget all you know about Virtual Studios. Anything can be accomplished with InfinitySet, from simple virtual sets with fixed cameras to advanced and complex productions involving tracked cameras, external feeds with embedded tracking data and data driven graphics interacting in real-time with the set and the talents. InfinitySet’s advanced technologies are also user-friendly, providing the best tool to create amazing programs that engage viewers.
InfinitySet is the most advanced virtual set solution thanks to the patented TrackFree technology. With advanced compositing features, it allows users to create fully realistic real-time 3D scenes with elements that behave like those of the real world. InfinitySet is a complete real-time 3D Graphics tool, as it can embed all the power of Aston, Brainstorm motion graphics creation, CG and playout solution, within the virtual set environment.
Brainstorm’s experience of nearly 25 years in producing advanced 3D graphics and virtual sets is concentrated in InfinitySet, which provides state-of-the-art Augmented Reality features used daily by broadcasters all over the world to create astonishing shows using virtual sets and graphics.
Along with enhanced integration with Aston, InfinitySet 4, the lateast version of the virtual studio application, provides a wide range of new features such as remote control of external light panels, which allowed to change the lighting conditions of the real set to match those of the virtual set, adding further realism to the content generated by the system, using the Brainstorm Combined Render Engine with Epic Game’s Unreal Engine. InfinitySet also demonstrated real-time DMX control over external chroma keyers, which is also essential when light conditions change, and therefore better adjusts the chroma keyed characters.
