Ulster Touring Opera is the first opera company in the world to take part in the Depthkit Pilot Programme. Depthkit is a next-generation creative toolset for Volumetric Filmmaking, and we are bringing it to Ulster. This cutting-edge software along with depth sensor cameras opens the door to a new world of 3D opera experiences, made possible thanks to the support of Future Screens NI and Sentireal.

What is “volumetric video”?

Think holograms. Volumetric video is a 3D representation of subjects, typically people. If video is like a painting, then volumetric video is like a sculpture, that moves! Volumetric video is different than 3D animation because is records real people and their movements. It is not a synthetic computer-generated puppet, but rather an authentic capture of time and light, as it really is.
