The need for high-impact communication never goes away. The past year made us realise how easily we used to take the availability and opportunity for communication for granted. Suddenly, all our events, conferences, shows, expos got cancelled or moved online. Business meetings, training sessions, presentations, webinars – all taking place via video conferencing apps.

How can business keep their audience and customers engaged and interested if communication became so limited? But even more importantly, how can it stimulate and motivate its team to take action and stay focused?

3D VIRTUAL STUDIO TECHNOLOGY – MAKING A GRIPPING IMPRESSION

It’s like a virtual background, but better. It streams live, but better. It lets you create content and make presentations, but …. you guessed it – it does it better.

Virtual studio solutions let you place a meeting host or a presenter in a fully virtual and interactive  space with a plenty of features helping you create truly engaging and impressive content.

In the recent years the market has got flooded with apps that can sort of put you in a virtual scenery – virtual backgrounds on Zoom or Skype, Instagram effects, chroma key feature in post-production softwares. There are a lot of free options. But what can they really do for you and your business?

To maintain high performance of your business, you need to make sure to adjust to the current situation the best way you can. That means developing ways you deliver messages, communicate, present, inform, excite.

Everybody who creates video content, works in creative industries, practices public speaking, knows that what you want to achieve is audience’s engagement, interest, their urge to listen and observe.
All free alternatives are extremely limiting, so if you want to create something that really stays with your viewer, then you need something extra.

RECKEEN 3D Studio is a product that will change how you think about communication and information delivery. The solution can be utilised to create better online events, conferences, and internal presentations, to host meetings, and create video materials used for training sessions, promos, video blogs, and more. Let’s get some overview of its features:

CREATE THE SPACE EXACTLY HOW YOU WANT

Transport yourself from even the smallest, simplest green screen background to a virtual scenography of your choosing. Big or small, minimalistic or all out, everything is possible. You don’t need to hire a graphic designer, and you don’t need experience. Choose from a template, modify, customise – intuitively. Match the virtual set to your business image and a type of event you’re hosting to maximise the effect.

BRING MULTIPLE PRESENTERS INTO A VIRTUAL SPACE

We’ve also connected with 2 remote speakers to have a live interview. For that purpose you can use well-known videoconferencing apps, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Webex and more, however we’ve decided to use Skype due to its convenient, built-in NDI feature. Not only we could bring live signal from speakers’ webcams and microphones inside the virtual studio, but our guests were also able to watch the live production coming from the virtual studio on Skype, from the comfort of their homes. This is a great way to elevate any live interactions and take them to the next level.

ANIMATE ANY 3D OBJECT

Whether its a custom-made 3D model, or an object from our library, you can add it into a scene and animate it, creating an interactive space that adjusts to your needs and impresses your audience. Visualisation doesn’t get better than this. Convey a message effectively! For the presentation of statistics and data regarding coronavirus cases in June 2020, we’ve decided to use 3D models of the globe and a map of the USA to exhibit the information in the most clear and direct way. All elements used in the video has been prepared as static 3D models, and later animated inside Reckeen 3D Studio Editor.

SHOWCASE MEDIA FILES AND SLIDESHOWS

Organise all your videos, images, slideshow presentations and sounds and bring them up into a virtual space when it’s their time. You can even send them directly from a different laptop, PC or a phone via IP using the ever-growing NDI protocol.

The music in the background, the images and videos on the monitors used in our video have been prepared prior to the filming and waiting to be triggered to come up on the correct screen in the correct time during the production.

ADD TITLES, LOGOS AND OTHER ON-SCREEN INFORMATION

From speakers names, contact information and company’s logos, to news tickers and any other graphic compositions – to make your content look even more professional. We’ve prepared the graphics for the video titles in Photoshop, but any later modifications, such as text, scale and exact placement of the titles on the screen have been done using Reckeen’s Still Editor.

STREAM LIVE AND RECORD

That’s why this solutions is being taken by storm – it’s a perfect way to host live events, conferences, meetings and trainings during these difficult times.
