Painting with Light launches interactive Virtual Event Studio in Genk,
Lighting, visuals, show and production design leader Painting with Light has launched a new live Virtual Event Studio at its C-MINE headquarters in Genk, Belgium. In partnership with NEP Belgium, specialist in festival and sport broadcasting, the Studio offers streaming production and broadcast facilities, including full virtual audience interactivity.
The project is a response to the increased demand for streamed, live and recorded events and content to expand reach and visibility in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and new social distancing rules. Painting with Light firmly believes this new kind of hybrid & mixed reality solution is future proof.
The new Virtual Event Studio space offers an innovative and creative approach for staging virtual events of all types. The Virtual Event Studio dynamics are enhanced with a high resolution 3 x 3 metre LED wall, putting the presenter in front of a virtual background for a higher quality end result and better visual coherence. A complete video floor below the presenter stage adds further visual dynamics. The other screens are all virtual, however, several smaller physical screens in the studio allow presenters to see and review the content on both physical and virtual surfaces. This improves participation and interaction with the audience.
