Design unique, ultra-realistic virtual studios
Do more with Unreal Engine—just added
Work more efficiently and produce better content with additional capabilities—including new animation system tools and optimizations, real-time compositing with composure, video clip playback, and more—when using Maestro | Virtual Set with the latest Unreal Engine. Plus, achieve greater levels of realism with object reflections and dynamic shadows.
Gain better performance—just added
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.
Render graphics with greater efficiency
HDVG4 now supports a hybrid architecture, enabling you to incorporate graphics seamlessly from both Unreal Engine and Avid RenderEngine on the same real-time rendering platform for a significantly more efficient and pain-free workflow. This setup provides maximum production performance, allowing Unreal Engine to take on the high-end rendering demands of your virtual studio elements, while RenderEngine handles all of your AR and data-driven graphics.
Boost your collaborative workflow
With the latest version of Xync included with Maestro | Virtual Set, both Unreal Engine and Avid RenderEngine can work in collaboration with the infrared tracking system, providing an easier and more streamlined production workflow.
Elevate production value with live video
Thanks to its tight integration with the latest Unreal Engine, Maestro | Virtual Set now enables you to introduce live video into your virtual studios. Enhance your production and give your set more dynamic energy by incorporating an array of video inputs—including live feeds, camera feeds, and video servers—with ultra-low latency.
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 higher resolution, more photorealistic 3D video game-quality imagery with dynamic shadows, reflections, and lighting options.
Gain efficiency with data-driven graphics
Introduce real-time, data-driven graphics, video, and other content into your virtual studio productions. Maestro | Virtual Set features a new set of tools that makes it easy to insert Maestro | Designer-created graphics that update automatically from a connected data source to ensure 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
Get all of the tools you need to create a captivating virtual studio, which might not be possible with a conventional set. Maestro | Virtual Set seamlessly integrates with Maestro | Designer to generate all graphical elements and Epic’s Unreal Editor to generate virtual environments. It also interfaces with 3D modeling software, including 3ds Max, Maya, and Cinema 4D. Or use VRML, COLLADA, or FBX formats to import 3D models—along with their animations, textures, and materials—and design virtual studio sets that were previously impossible to build, too complex, or just too expensive to manufacture.
Render multiple productions in real time
Powered by the Avid HDVG4 real-time graphics rendering platform, Maestro | Virtual Set offers 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 and SD formats, as well as 14 insertions in 3G.
