Reality Hub

The better way to tell better stories

Imagine a world where technology merges seamlessly with creativity, and operational efficiency meets storytelling prowess. That world is Reality Hub — the driving force behind the next generation of enhanced visual storytelling.

One interface, limitless possibilities
Control all your existing broadcast technology, editorial environments and data providers via one dynamic HTML5 interface. Reality Hub’s centralized control system seriously boosts efficiency and control.

Integrated workflow for all broadcasting segments
Manage virtual production, real time motion graphics, channel branding, and more. Reality Hub effortlessly integrates with standard broadcast systems, streamlining your workflow and unlocking the future of virtual production and graphics.

Your creative playground
Robust. Adaptable. Open. Reality Hub’s modular design makes it easy for third-party innovators to add to its foundational controls and functionalities by developing and integrating their own plugins. The possibilities are literally endless.

Integrations

Reality Hub can integrate with every aspect of the production workflow. Its control systems support a variety of integrations:

  • Newsroom Computer Systems (NRCS) via the MOS interface (iNews, ENPS, Octopus)

  • Studio Automations platforms (Mosart, Pebble beach, Sony ELC, Harris)

  • Robotic camera heads and robotic PTZ cameras

  • Studio lights via the DMX protocol

  • Vision mixers and MCR automation

Data and statistics integration
Want to tell stories based on large or complex data sets? Reality Hub integrates with data and statistics providers that drive dynamic data-driven graphics. It supports manual data input and fully automated integrations, with or without editorial control pass.

RealityHub-Real-Time-Data-Integration

Real-time data integration

RealityHub integrates the Unreal world with the external data sources such as weather, finance, elections, sports. Crucial data connectors are developed for broadcasters for major global data providers.

RealityHub-Web-Technology

Web technology

RealityHub redefines the control applications by upgrading them to a web-based technology that allows them to run on multiple platforms supporting web browsing, such as phone, tablet and laptop.

RealityHub-Fully-Modular-System

Fully modular system

RealityHub is fully modular system with server / client architecture where the core is very thin. All functionalities are developed as separate modules.

One RealityHub to Automate Them All

RealityHub integrates with existing broadcast systems and equipment through broadcast standard communication and automation protocols. This allows broadcasters to integrate Unreal Engine into news and production environment.

One RealityHub to Customize Them All

Besides AR and virtual studio graphics where Unreal is rapidly growing, RealityHub allows broadcasters to utilize Unreal Engine for other broadcast graphics such as channel branding, lower third graphics, bumpers, full screen info graphics, sport/news graphics, tickers etc. RealityHub utilizes Unreal UMG module to replace / upgrade all broadcast graphics systems.

RealityHub is a fully modular system and modules can be created by any developer, making the modules and the tools highly customizable.

One RealityHub to Develop Them All

RealityHub is fully modular system where the core is very thin. All functionalities will be developed as  separate modules. The modules communicate with Unreal and / or with the other modules through RealityHub core. Besides the standard modules, RealityHub allows third party developers to develop their own modules as plugins and add/extend the functionalities of RealityHub. Since RealityHub provides all necessary controls/functionalities to integrate with broadcast production workflows, the third party developers can develop plugins fast and easily and will be able to reuse the core functionalities of RealityHub core.
