FAIRFAX, Va., June 1, 2023 — InfoComm 2023 will put the spotlight on emerging technologies, from augmented and virtual reality to AI, to virtual production. Leading experts will dive into these topics in the vast education program and solution providers will showcase the technology in action on the trade show floor June 10-16 (exhibits 14-16) at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Virtual Production in Action
InfoComm attendees will get a first-hand look at how virtual production works at The Unreal Ride, A Virtual Production Experience Presented by Vū, Unilumin, and MRMC (booth 6081). The teams have collaborated to debut an entirely new Unreal Ride featuring a Jeep where two participants can ride through newly created virtual worlds specifically designed for InfoComm 2023. Attendees will experience a blend of the physical and virtual worlds through a combination of the latest innovations in virtual production technology, including advanced LED panels, a motion-controlled camera, camera tracking and virtual environments created with Unreal Engine, and lighting optimized for virtual production.
“We’re really looking forward to this virtual production experience Vū, Unilumin, and MRMC are bringing to InfoComm 2023,” said Rochelle Richardson, CEM, Senior Vice President of Expositions and Events, AVIXA, producer of InfoComm. “The InfoComm audience is not only going to see the magic of virtual production – they’re also going to get to participate!”
