Bristol VR Lab’s “Afternoon Seminars 14.0 – Volumetric Video” takes place on Wednesday 12th February, 2020 between 1:00 and 2:30pm.

“Volumetric video for the age of spatial computing” – Nick Fellingham, CEO, Condense Reality

Nick Fellingham, Condense Reality’s CEO will be unveiling their volumetric capture technology and talking about how volumetric video is set to change the way we watch live events.

Condense Reality are building a next generation platform for recording and broadcasting live sports events using volumetric video.

When combined with a VR or AR headset, volumetric video allows viewers to move around the content to watch it from any viewpoint they choose.

By combining cutting edge computer vision and a novel deep learning stack they are pushing the boundaries of what is possible in live volumetric broadcasting.

“Exploring ways to bring volumetric video to everyone” – Jack Norris and Chris Price, Zubr

Jack Norris and Chris Price from Zubr will share stories of some of their most unique volumetric video projects, including a hologram capture suite for We the Curious, and a multi-user mixed reality training application.

Zubr is an augmented and virtual reality studio with a passion for volumetric video projects, dating back to their first experiments in 2014.

Zubr has a focus on making volumetric capture accessible, and using inexpensive hardware for achieving comparable results to multi-million pound facilities. This ties closely with their ongoing research into commercial depth sensors and collaborative photogrammetry.
