I had the chance to work with the world’s leading LIVE volumetric video business Condense Live. A Uk based start up that is streaming live music performances in spatial, 3D Volumetric Video. It’s a fascinating space and for the first time I realised this is a very real tool of the future, not just a passing trend.

The way we consume media is changing, Gen Z an Alpha spend more time on gaming platforms socialising and playing than ever before.

The question is how do we reach them in the Metaverse?

The answer is to interact in the 3rd dimension we need three dimensional tools and volumetric video is exactly that. Using cameras to take a real life person and recreate that person in a 3d mesh. So now live concerts, films and more can be created and interacted with.

Here’s some general Chat GPT blurb about volumetric video. If you really want to delve in more to this fascinating subject then check out he links at the end of this article.

Volumetric video has a wide range of uses in various industries, from entertainment to education and beyond. Here are a few examples of the applications of volumetric video:

  1. Virtual reality: Volumetric video can be used to create immersive and interactive virtual reality experiences. By capturing real-world environments and objects in 3D, users can explore and interact with them in a way that was previously impossible.
  2. Film and television: Volumetric video can be used to create 3D models of real life actors NOT avatars, allowing for more realistic special effects and animation. It can also be used to create interactive content for streaming platforms or other digital channels.
  3. Education: Volumetric video can be used to create educational content, such as interactive virtual tours of historical sites, medical training simulations, or immersive language learning experiences.
  4. Advertising and marketing: Volumetric video can be used to create interactive and immersive advertising experiences. Brands can use it to create virtual events, product demos, or interactive in-game advertisements.
  5. Teleconferencing: Volumetric video can be used to create lifelike 3D representations of people for teleconferencing and telepresence. This can create a more realistic and experience than traditional video conferencing.

Overall, volumetric video has the potential to transform the way we experience and interact with video content in a variety of contexts. As the technology continues to develop, we can expect to see even more innovative applications in the future.engaging
