Extended Reality (xR)

Extend reality, reduce delays

Extended reality (xR) is technology that allows you to merge real and virtual worlds using a blend of techniques known as Virtual Production (VP), Augmented reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR). This technology enables the production of new environnements and visualizations, where physical and digital objects co-exist in real time. By using it, you can create a fully immersive experience for your live events, virtual production shootings, TV shows, films, and more.

SMODE xR technology orchestrates LED, real-time content, and camera tracking to power production environments. Content can be created with the industry leading 3D engines such as Unreal Engine and Notch, as well as with the 3D internal engine of SMODE, or a combination of both. SMODE xR is compatible with most tracking systems and technologies available on the market.

SMODE xR produces opportunities for collaboration, combining teams and technologies to drive a single artistic vision.

Calibration Master

SMODE provides perfectly calibrated latency, color, and placement of screens - essential requirements for xR productions!

  • Latency: Automatically evaluate the frame delay between sending a picture to the stage and receiving it back through the camera.
  • Geometry: Automatically align the virtual world with the real world.
  • Color: Perfectly blend the walls’ colors with the virtual surrounding.
