Uncorporeal Systems and Radiant Images aim to help content creators create immersive virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experiences through a new partnership that’ll provide a comprehensive software and support package the companies have revealed.
As part of the collaboration, Uncorporeal Systems will provide its cloud software while Radiant Images will provide studio services and production support. The initial focus will be on deploying Uncorporeal’s TruVu volumetric capture software that can be used with any capture rig, and comes with direct game engine integration to easily modify and redeploy content.
“With more and more clients asking us how to incorporate the highest level of immersion and realism into their VR productions, it’s clear that the future of VR is volumetric,” said Michael Mansouri, Co-founder of Radiant Images in a statement. “After carefully evaluating all of the companies in the field, we determined that Uncorporeal’s TruVu software is the only solution that can meet our clients’ needs in terms of quality, portability and flexibility. Uncorporeal is an ideal partner to continue pushing the technological boundaries of filmmaking, and we’re already seeing strong interest from production studios as well as the medical and gaming industries.”
“Radiant Images has played a pivotal role in accelerating some of the most exciting advances in entertainment technology, including inventing new cameras for smash hits like the Transformers and the Fast and the Furious series,” said Kul Wadhwa, Uncorporeal CEO. “Their award-winning team is an invaluable asset to provide studio services that help content creators get up and running with Uncorporeal’s technology fast. Together, we’re providing a valuable package to spark a new era of VR and AR experiences in Hollywood and beyond.”
Radiant Images’s previous credits include the Ron Howard film In The Heart of The Sea, The 33 and Southpaw, as well as The Tale of Two Faces, an immersive film from last year by writer-director Joston “El Rey” Theney.
