The possibilities for virtual events with Modulo Pi

XR events

The possibilities for virtual events with Modulo Pi

The event industry has been severely affected by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic for 9 months now. Between lockdowns, gathering restrictions, and social distancing rules, maintaining and holding events has become quite a challenge.

At the same time, the need to communicate is more present than ever before. The pandemic created uncertainty, remote work has become increasingly widespread, and companies must communicate to maintain the connection and engagement within their organization.

If video conferencing solutions like Zoom or Microsoft Teams may be the big winners of the Covid-19 crisis, these platforms are reaching their limits when you need to step outside the classic meeting framework.

To go further, virtual events offer an alternative compliant with the constraints implied by the pandemic. Apart from the physical absence of the audience, what do virtual events encompass? What are the technologies and possibilities behind these new formats?

 

A fixed video set
In this configuration, a display system made of LCD or LED screens allows to play content as a background for the presenters on stage or set. The video background provides a scenery for the set, and the rendering is streamed to a remote audience.
This configuration is easy to implement and its virtual dimension is limited to the delivery method: Streaming.

Compatible Modulo Pi solutions: Modulo Player and Modulo Kinetic

 

Green screen keying
Second option, speakers are installed in front of an evenly lit green screen. Thanks to a chroma keyer, the backdrop green screen is keyed out and replaced with image or video content. This technique allows to dynamically change the background, resulting in unlimited virtual sets.
However, to ensure a quality and realistic rendering, live production will be narrowed. Camera movements will be reduced to maintain consistency between the presenter on stage and the background. Camera point of view changes will be done in cut.

Compatible Modulo Pi solutions: Modulo Player and Modulo Kinetic

 

Virtual studio with Augmented Reality (AR)
To go further, techniques such as virtual studio and Augmented Reality (AR) are available.

In a virtual studio, speakers on set are installed on a green screen or LED screen, and immersed in a 3D scene. Virtual studios enable creating a more complete environment compared to the other configurations seen before. Indeed, the 3D sets offer the impression that the event is produced in a true studio designed according to the client’s expectations.

As for Augmented Reality (AR), it is a technique used in the broadcast industry among other things. The principle is to add virtual elements to a real scene. The idea is to take advantage of the virtual dimension to offer new creative opportunities, freed from the constraints of reality. As an example, you can introduce a car, a plane, or any other 3D object at the scale of your choice. The physical integration of such elements would be much more complex to handle within a traditional live event.

In addition, presenting some data in 3D may be much more relevant than using a classic support such as PowerPoint. Graphs and diagrams can thus come to life next to their presenter, for a livelier and more readable outcome for the viewers watching the presentation streamed.
Augmented Reality offer new creative possibilities to grab audience attention and produce a virtual event that stands out.

Compatible Modulo Pi solutions: Modulo Kinetic – V4

 

Virtual studio with Extended Reality (XR)
The last option, also the most complete and elaborated one, is virtual studio in Extended Reality or XR.
XR encompasses all techniques allowing the creation of a rendering in which real and virtual environments are perfectly associated and mixed. We also talk about Mixed Reality (MR).

Compared to the previous configuration, XR brings background replacement in real time, as well as stage extension.

Real-time background replacement consists in the fact the 3D virtual set evolves simultaneously with the camera point of view. Production is totally free: Pan, tilt, zoom, traveling… No matter your camera movements or switching of cameras, the consistency between your real and virtual elements is maintained. Such consistency is possible thanks to space calibration and camera tracking.

Another major benefit is scene extension. Thanks to Extended Reality, you can enjoy a virtual space stretching beyond the limits of your real venue. Even if you work in a small-size set, your virtual event might give the impression of a vast studio. Regardless of the physical constraints of your venue, XR virtual studio offers outstanding flexibility in the creation and production of your event.

Les possibilités d’événements virtuels avec Modulo Pi

Les possibilités d’événements virtuels avec Modulo Pi

Depuis maintenant 9 mois, le secteur événementiel est durement touché par les effets de la pandémie de Covid-19. Entre périodes de confinement, restrictions sur les rassemblements de personnes, et règles de distanciation sociale, le maintien d’une activité événementielle est devenu un véritable défi.

Parallèlement à cela, le besoin de communiquer se fait plus présent que jamais. La pandémie a créé un climat d’incertitude, le télétravail tend à se généraliser, et les entreprises se doivent de communiquer pour maintenir le lien et l’engagement au sein de leur organisation.

Si les solutions de vidéo-conférence telles que Zoom ou Microsoft Teams semblent être les grandes gagnantes de la crise du Covid-19, ces plateformes atteignent leurs limites dès que l’on sort du cadre de la réunion classique.

Pour aller plus loin, les événements virtuels constituent une alternative nouvelle et respectueuse des contraintes que font peser la pandémie sur l’organisation des événements.
Mais au-delà de l’absence physique du public sur le lieu de l’événement, qu’entend-on exactement par événement virtuel ? Quelles sont les technologies et les possibilités mises en œuvre à travers ces nouveaux formats ?

 

Info-décor fixe
Dans cette configuration, un système d’affichage composé d’écrans LED ou LCD permet de diffuser du contenu en arrière-plan des intervenants présents sur scène ou en plateau. L’info-décor diffusé permet d’habiller le plateau, et le rendu est diffusé en streaming auprès d’une audience à distance.
Simple à mettre en œuvre, la dimension virtuelle de ce type de configuration se limite à son mode de diffusion, le streaming.

Solutions Modulo Pi compatibles : Modulo Player et Modulo Kinetic

 

Incrustation sur fond vert
Seconde possibilité, les intervenants sont installés sur un fond vert uniformément éclairé. Grâce à un chroma keyer, le fond vert en arrière-plan est isolé et remplacé par des images ou des vidéos. Ce procédé permet de changer l’arrière-plan de façon dynamique, ce qui offre des possibilités de décors fictifs illimitées.
Pour que le rendu soit de qualité et paraisse réaliste, la réalisation devra cependant être restreinte. Les mouvements de caméra seront réduits pour conserver une cohérence entre le sujet sur scène et l’arrière-plan. Les changements de point de vue caméra s’effectueront en cut.

Solutions Modulo Pi compatibles : Modulo Player et Modulo Kinetic

 

Studio virtuel avec Réalité Augmentée (AR)
Pour aller plus loin, il est possible d’adopter des techniques telles que le studio virtuel et la Réalité Augmentée (AR).

Dans une configuration dite de studio virtuel, les personnes sur scène sont immergées dans une scène 3D. Les studios virtuels permettent de créer un environnement plus abouti que les habillages précédemment cités. En effet, ces décors 3D donnent le sentiment que l’événement est réalisé dans un véritable studio designé selon les attentes de l’entreprise cliente.

Quant à la Réalité Augmentée (AR), il s’agit d’une technique notamment employée dans l’univers du broadcast, et qui consiste à superposer des éléments virtuels sur une scène réelle. L’idée est ici de tirer avantage du virtuel pour déployer de nouvelles propositions créatives, en s’affranchissant des contraintes du réel. Vous pouvez par exemple présenter une voiture, un avion ou tout autre objet 3D à l’échelle de votre choix. L’intégration physique de ces éléments serait évidemment beaucoup plus complexe à gérer dans un format d’événement traditionnel.
Par ailleurs, la présentation de certaines variables sera beaucoup plus opportune en 3D que sur un support classique type PowerPoint. Les graphiques et diagrammes peuvent ainsi prendre vie à côté de leur présentateur, rendant le format plus lisible et plus vivant pour l’audience qui visualise la présentation en streaming.
La Réalité Augmentée ouvre donc de nouvelles possibilités créatives pour capter l’attention de l’audience et donner du relief à un événement virtuel.

Solutions Modulo Pi compatibles : Modulo Kinetic – V4

 

Studio virtuel avec Réalité Etendue (XR)
Dernière possibilité, la plus aboutie et élaborée, un studio virtuel en Réalité Etendue ou XR.
Le terme XR englobe l’ensemble des techniques qui permettent de créer un rendu où réel et virtuel sont parfaitement mêlés et associés. On parle également de Réalité Mixte (MR).

Par rapport à la configuration précédente, la XR apporte le remplacement d’arrière-plan en temps réel, et les extensions de scène.

Le remplacement d’arrière-plan en temps réel correspond au fait que le décor virtuel 3D évolue simultanément avec le point de vue caméra. Votre réalisation est totalement libre : pan, tilt, zoom, traveling… Quels que soient vos mouvements de caméra ou vos changements de caméra, la cohérence entre vos éléments virtuels et réels est maintenue. Cette cohérence est rendue possible par la calibration de l’espace et le tracking caméra.

Autre bénéfice majeur : l’extension de scène. Grâce à la Réalité Etendue, vous pouvez profiter d’un espace virtuel qui va au-delà des limites de votre environnement réel. Vous pouvez donc travailler dans un plateau physique de taille réduite, votre événement virtuel pourra lui donner l’impression d’un vaste studio. Indépendamment de vos contraintes physiques de lieu, le studio virtuel XR vous offre une grande souplesse dans la création et la production de votre événement.
