Location: Menier Penthouse. Floor 5, 38 Southwark Street, London, SE1 1UN.

Join Dreamtek and a panel of experts to discuss and understand how anyone with a studio or a desire to create dynamic content needs to have a handle on this emerging technology. We will be exploring the art of using Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) in live and virtual event scenarios – technologies that have seen rapid advancements in recent times.

Our panel will be discussing the various tools available to create AR content and provide insight into the landscape of compatible devices and wearable technology, as well as sharing best practices for creating engaging experiences with AR/MR. We’ll also discuss how businesses can use this technology in their operations, such as product marketing, team training and overall customer experience.

Virtual production and XR technology is rapidly becoming a major force in content creation. Popularised by blockbuster shows such as Star Wars Manadlorian, its potential has become accessible to even the mainstream market with companies like ITV, Sky and even some enterprise clients now taking full advantage of the tools and workflows offered by leading manufacturers such as Bendac. By using LED volumes and the latest XR technologies, we can create content more efficiently, quickly and cost-effectively. This allows us to explore new possibilities such as real-time compositing of live action with digital props or characters, crowd replication for large scale scenes, and much much more.
