Reality Hub: single control interface

Efficient. Effective. Fun to use. The Reality Hub system controls all of our graphics platforms, giving operators confidence, flexibility, and control. It also saves time and reduces errors by integrating with newsroom systems, studio automation, and other data providers to streamline data handling processes.

Traxis Talent tracking

Through the convergence of Reality5, Unreal 5.3 and our Traxis Talent Tracking, our clients can fully harness Unreal native capabilities, including a collision control mechanism that allows the talent to interact with virtual objects, all while enhancing realism with dynamic shadows and reflections.

Reality Engine uses Unreal Engine by Epic Games, the most photo-realistic real-time game engine, as the 3D renderer. With the advanced real-time visual effects capabilities, Reality System ensures the most photo-realistic composite output possible.


Tracking Technology and Lens Calibration

Reality Engine, the broadcast compositing system supports industry standard mechanical and optical camera tracking systems. Reality can use the lens calibration data sent by the tracking devices.


Talent Tracking

When the talent tracking data acquired by Reality Engine, the engine positions the talent inside the virtual world in the correct position and depth. This technology automatically enables the creation of accurate reflections and refractions of the talent. Interaction between the real and physical is achieved with utmost realism thanks to Reality Engine’s industry first and only feature of compositing in 3D space. All process happens in one single machine.

Compositing in 3D space

As a unique approach in the market, in Reality, green screen image is composited with graphics in 3D scene. This technique results in real-time realistic reflections and refractions of the physical objects and the people inside the green screen on top of the graphics. Also blooming effects and lens flares are composited over the real elements. All of the compositing is made in 16 bit floating point, for HDR precision.

ray tracing

Real-time Ray Tracing

Reality Engine takes advantage of latest powerful technologies from world’s most leading companies like Nvidia RTX GPU technology to produce high quality and realistic rendering possible in the industry today. Real-time ray tracing technology brings cinematic quality rendering capability to live production and provides realistic lighting, shadows and reflections.

portal window reality engine

Videowall and Portal Window

Reality Engine can feed your videowalls with high-resolution 3D graphics. By using camera tracking data, you can even convert your videowall into a portal to a virtual environment. Reality Engine System easily connects to the videowall through SDI, HDMI or display port. Combining portal window with ceiling extension, you will be able to have a virtual studio without green screen.
