XRBase, that is managing the Green Screen studio, is very interested in a shared model for covering the rent for the studio, to benefit all at the Marineterrein.
To show some of the possibilities, the community of the Marineterrein is invited to have a look at the Volumetric Video setup on Friday, November 23 from 16.00. Volumetric video is an emerging format of video featuring moving images of real people that exist truly in 3D — like holograms — allowing them to be viewed from any angle at any moment in time.
This setup is just one out of many use cases for the Green Screen Studio . The Green Screen Studio is ideal for 360º productions/fotoshoots/promos.
You can find the Green Screen Studio at Building 003-A
This Friday evening, November 23, XRBase is throwing a concert and social gathering at the Schietbaan from 19.00 – 23.00
