VS4000 Features
The cost effective and versatile VS2000 virtual studio has been upgraded and now features true HD capability. Darim will continue with the 3D VS2000 for standard definition requirements. Dubbed the VS4000, it is the most cost-effective, powerful turnkey solution for quickly generating dramatic 3D HD live Broadcasts with stunningly realistic 3D virtual sets. The ideal tool for space constrained broadcast environments, the VS4000 enables the keying of live actors or video feeds combined with a fully interactive 3D environment, incorporating mesh objects, materials, virtual lights, cameras and animation tracks, to produce striking live studio broadcasts at a fraction of the cost of building out full sets.

Virtual Highlights:
? Trackless design reduces the need for studio space/setup time
? Provides full 3D position and zoom control for virtual cameras
? Integrated chroma keying, 3D rendering and video mixing
? Real-time switching of multiple cameras/auxillary video sources
?Insertion of live/recorded A/V content into virtual sets
? Easy-to-use yet powerful virtual set control script
? One-touch activation of animations and pre-programmed actions
? Single-person operation using keyboard/mouse/joystick
? Optional interface to camera tracking sensor systems

Key innovations include expanded actor movement area, interaction between actor and the virtual set, trackless camera movements as well as automatic or manual keying. The VS4000 requires only a single operator, using a keyboard, mouse or joystick, eliminating the need for a team of video engineers to produce broadcasts that rival the networks and now features a new and very intuitive graphical user interface.
