InfinitySet

The most advanced virtual set solution

Forget all you know about Virtual Studios. Anything can be accomplished with Infinity Set, 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.

Infinity Set is the all-in-one virtual set and real-time 3D graphics solution, not just for showcasing a number of extremely advanced technologies, but also for the flexibility this solution gives to operators and producers alike. Brainstorm’s award-winning InfinitySet dramatically enhances production value to capture and retain new and larger audiences, while greatly reducing production costs and opening up new sources of revenue.

Why InfinitySet

Infinity Set is the most advanced virtual set solution thanks to the patented TrackFree technology.


With advanced compositing features, it allows to create fully realistic real-time 3D scenes with elements that  behave like those of the real world.


Infinity Set is a complete real-time 3D Graphics tool, as it can embed all the power of Aston within the virtual set environment.

TrackFree

TrackFree is a patented camera-tracking independent technology that provides just what its name claims: the total freedom for operators to use any tracking system, trackless or fixed cameras, or a combination of these at the same time.

Allows for combined Chroma Keying, even within the same production:

  • Internal chroma key software
  • External chroma key hardware
  • Combination of both

TrackFree advanced features:

  • TeleTransporter
  • 3D Presenter
  • HandsTracking
  • FreeWalking

Enhanced internal Chroma keyer

InfinitySet features an advanced internal, resolution independent Chroma Keyer, supporting controls for main key, spill correction, detail recovering and colour correction.

InfinitySet automatically creates an secondary key for feet tracking, independent from the main one. This key permits the calculation of the talent’s feet position for the FreeWalking feature and for creating virtual shadows and reflections.

TeleTransporter

This feature seamlessly combines 3D virtual sets with real characters and live or pre-recorded video feeds, all moving accordingly with precise matching of perspective, color, shadows, reflections or focus.

Infinity Set allows the incorporation of external post-production tracking hardware and software data along with real-time tracking data, combining both with any object or set on the scene. Also, external tracking data coming from real cameras or third-party tracking software can be included as metadata in live feeds or pre-recorded videos, and immediately be transferred and applied to the virtual camera’s parameters.

3D Presenter

Converts the talent into a 3D object, achieved by generating a true 3D representation of the talent from a video feed. The presenter becomes an actual 3D object embedded within the virtual set. 3D Presenter features:

  • Casts real shadows and reflections of the talent from virtual lights over virtual and real objects.
  • Allows for interaction of the talent with 3D elements in the virtual set.
  • Adds volumetric lighting for selective illumination and colour correction of the talent, the lights interact in a realistic manner with the talent’s 3D volume.

FreeWalking

Enables talents to move freely around the green screen theatre matching their movements within the 3D space. Presenters are allowed to move forward, backwards and sideways with precise perspective matcking even though the real camera is in a fixed position.

HandsTracking

Allows the triggering of events and animations just with the simple movement of the bare hands.

HandsTracking brings gestures to life, so presenters can trigger animations, graphics or data with a simple movement of the hands and without the need for any additional costly and complex tracking devices.

Selective defocus and bokeh

InfinitySet can even match the depth-of-field of the presenter with that of the scene.

Using the real camera’s parameters, InfinitySet is able to create a selective defocus and bokeh effects on the virtual scene adding an even more realistic effect to the final rendered composition.

 

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality requires the interaction between sets, talents and virtual objects, often created out of external data sources. These in-context data driven objects allow for visually engaging and better explained representations of the data.

The combination of InfinitySet features makes Live projection mapping a straight forward application.

Advanced rendering

More information

Motion graphics

As much Augmented Reality content requires advanced graphics features to guarantee the accuracy and realism of the result, InfinitySet includes graphics editing and creation features of Aston, so it can edit, manage and create 2D/3D motion graphics.

Also, Aston compositions, can be included, controlled and edited within Infinity Set allowing for the creation of great quality programs with enhanced information.

  • Integrates Aston projects within the virtual set environment
  • Imports 3D files into the virtual set:
    • .fbx, .obj, .dae, .3ds…

InfinitySet motion graphics

Software Mixer

Infinity Set features a software-based Production Mixer Mode for enhanced production functionality such as full control of all the virtual cameras, with non-linear transitions such as Cut-Fade-Wipes and Flies between 3D cameras, plus controlling actions and objects.

Virtual Set Camera Controller

Infinity Set is fully compatible with Brainstorm’s Virtual Camera Controller, an external hardware that controls the Production Mixer Mode.

This hardware, also used by other Brainstorm solutions, is designed to further enhance the live production capabilities of  Infinity Set, allowing full control of cameras, transitions, actions and objects.

Turnkey system

InfinitySet is delivered as a complete, turnkey system ready to use, fully and immediately integrable in any broadcaster’s workflow. Using standard broadcast plus complete IT connectivity, all Brainstorm products are prepared to work at its best since day one.
Licenses

Infinity Set +Track

  • This license is ideal for high-spec requirements as it includes enhanced TrackFree Technology, –TeleTransporter, 3D Presenter and HandTracking– and it is able to work with tracking devices.

Infinity Set

  • This other license is meant for mid-range studios. It also features TrackFree Technology, but only includes 3D Presenter and HandTracking. 

Infinity Set Lite

  • This is the cost-effective version for smaller requirements. It does not include TrackFree Technology.
