Innovative new platform combines state-of-the-art hardware and creative tools including the ‘Virtual Studio by Vu’ to make the latest storytelling possibilities accessible to everyone regardless of budget and technical experience.
Vu Technologies, North America’s largest network of virtual studios, has just unveiled Vu One, a groundbreaking, multipurpose “all-in-one” studio that makes virtual production accessible to all creatives regardless of budget and technical experience.
Virtual production, which uses technology to seamlessly join the digital and physical worlds in real-time, has reshaped how content is created and consumed. However, the complex technology and the significant investment required for owning and operating such studios have confined their access to a select few. Vu One solves this problem by making virtual production more attainable.
Vu One’s turn-key solution condenses the power of virtual production into one straightforward, cost-effective system and combines the best hardware technologies with the latest creative software and tools. Powered by Virtual Studio, a suite of innovative tools including the Vu.ai generative content workflow, this all-in-one system instantly takes you from idea to the screen.
Jonathan Davila, President and Co-Founder at Vu Technologies, stated, “With Vu One, advanced production technologies are now available for everyone. Whether you’re a small production company, an educator or a corporate marketing department, it’s never been easier to make content faster, cheaper and better.”
Vu Technologies CEO Tim Moore added, “Vu One unlocks the doors of virtual production for all visionaries seeking to bring their concepts to life. Vu One is a transformational force, reshaping how creators manifest their visions into awe-inspiring realities.”
According to the company, whether crafting narratives, simulating intricate environments, or designing immersive experiences, Vu One empowers storytellers of all backgrounds, including corporations, organizations, agencies, marketers, educators, designers, inventors, and more.
Vu One works as a single, easy-to-configure platform controlled by software from a handheld mobile device. It operates seamlessly on a streamlined technology stack, regardless of screen size or setup, and comes integrated with five essential components: display, audio, tracking, media server and content management. Boasting a range of display options, Vu One sizes start at 16 ft x 9 ft to an expansive 45ft x 16ft.
The Virtual Studio by Vu, a comprehensive, integrated virtual production software suite, includes innovative tools such as Scene Forge, Remote VP and Vu.ai, along with industry-leading applications like Unreal Engine, Volinga, Storia.ai, and others. Virtual Studio also includes a robust marketplace of 3D and 2D assets, all “Certified for Virtual Production” and optimized to run on Vu One.
Vu One starts at $5,600 per month for the base model. A complete system can be purchased outright for as low as $249,000 and comes with both 2D and 3D options including a media server powered by Puget Systems. Vu One configuration options include:
- Vu One: A complete cinematic solution for high resolution images and video playback
- Vu One + 3D: Upgraded render engine for 3D virtual environments (Unreal Engine) with camera tracking
- Vu One Custom: Integration to an existing infrastructure and sizing of the LED wall to fit your space
Shipping commences in Q4 2023.
