GhostFrame demo hosted at FMX's Virtual Production showcase

Changing the Game of Film Production

Leek, The Netherlands (10 May 2022) – The 26th edition of FMX hosted an extensive virtual production stage. Partnering with Epic Games, ARRI, disguise, TrackMen, and the GhostFrame team represented by ROE Visual, an ambitious demonstration was prepared, showcasing the latest in virtual production technology, including GhostFrame technology.

"This showcase offers the ideal platform to visualize the added value of GhostFrame for games, broadcast and film applications"

The FMX took place from 3-5 May in Stuttgart, Germany. Starting as an exchange fair for the students of the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, FMX – Film and Media Exchange – has developed into one of the world's most influential conferences dedicated to digital entertainment.

Over the years, thousands of speakers have entered the FMX Stage to share their insights into the world of animation, effects, and interactive and immersive media.

Working with industry-leading technology partners ARRI, disguise, Epic Games, and TrackMen, a fully-operational virtual production stage was made possible, including GhostFrame Track and GhostFrame Chroma features. Visitors could enter the stage to experience an on-stage performance, a hands-on encounter with the Unreal Engine and disguise technology, or a behind-the-camera experience.

The immersive and real-time nature of LED studio environments can unlock production limitations and allow filmmakers to shoot multiple locations in one place. You can even improve this workflow by adding the GhostFrame technology, making it more efficient and faster.

To activate the GhostFrame features, an ROE Visual Black Pearl BP2V2 LED wall was built, powered by Megapixel's HELIOS LED processing platform, while TrackMen provided the camera tracking.

"Our growing engagement with and expertise in the game, broadcast and film market is manifested in our current product portfolio. We're well aware of the demanding requirements that go hand-in-hand with working with in-camera shoots. Our partnerships with ARRI, Unreal Engine and disguise reflect that engagement and focus on getting the most out of the LED technology for our users. This showcase offers the ideal platform to visualize the added value of GhostFrame for games, broadcast and film applications", states Roelof Bouwman, from GhostFrame partner ROE Visual.
