Design unique, ultra-realistic virtual studios
Get unmatched real-time rendering power—just added
Maestro | Virtual Set is now powered by the Maestro | Engine 4K graphics rendering platform, which supports a hybrid architecture. This enables you to incorporate graphics from Unreal Engine and Avid RenderEngine and run multiple virtual sets and additional graphics in real time on the same rendering platform, providing maximum efficiency and a pain-free workflow.
Gain better performance
Get faster mesh drawing, improved system performance, and cut cook times by 60% to better handle complex graphic elements when using the latest Unreal Engine release. Plus, gain improved performance in Linux and Vulkan environments.
Produce Unreal graphics
Up the “wow” factor in all of your studio productions. Maestro | Virtual Set supports Epic’s Unreal Engine, giving you even richer, sharper graphics capabilities than ever before. With Epic’s Unreal Editor, you can produce and render photorealistic, 3D cinema-quality imagery, animation, and video at higher resolution, with dynamic shadows, reflections, and lighting options.
Keep viewers informed with data-driven graphics
Easily insert real-time, data-driven graphics, video, and other content into your virtual studio productions. Maestro | Virtual Set makes it easy to insert Maestro | Designer-created graphics that update automatically from a connected data source, ensuring your content is relevant and always up-to-the-second accurate.
Experience unmatched reliability
Maestro | Virtual Set delivers the utmost reliability in even the most demanding studio environments. For added peace of mind, it offers a unique bypass technology option, enabling you to switch automatically to an alternate auxiliary signal should the need arise. In addition, a redundant power supply ensures that in the event of a power failure, Maestro | Virtual Set will continue to operate, so your audience never sees an empty blue or green screen.
Cut costs substantially
By creating virtual sets, you can eliminate physical set costs, including material, construction, transportation, storage, and maintenance of the sets. In fact, additional video walls, screens, rotating platforms, and other mechanical props can all be realized virtually, saving you a substantial sum of money year to year. Without the physical wear and tear.
Control everything with one operator
Because only one operator is required to operate the virtual background and the on-air graphics, you can cut down on your operational resources considerably. Plus, Maestro | Virtual Set makes small spaces appear larger—a virtual set may be as small as 10 x 10 feet, thereby having lower related costs for lighting, air conditioning, and other incidentals, while maintaining a large studio feel.
Get unlimited design possibilities
Easily design photorealistic virtual studios that would be too complex or too expensive to build. Maestro | Virtual Set seamlessly integrates with Maestro | Designer and Epic’s Unreal Editor, enabling you to quickly create, generate, and change out set environments to match your story. It also interfaces with 3D modeling software, including 3ds Max, Maya, and Cinema 4D, and supports VRML, COLLADA, and FBX formats to import 3D models—along with their animations, textures, and materials.
Render multiple productions in real time
Maestro | Virtual Set with Maestro | Engine 4K delivers unmatched rendering power that enables you to run multiple virtual sets in real time, maximizing resources while increasing revenue. It supports multiple formats, includes an internal video delay, and provides up to 16 video insertions in HD or up to 8 insertions in 3G.
