GhostFrame Unlocks Virtual Production Creativity

Virtual production toolkit GhostFrame powers simplified, more efficient, and more creative workflows for LED Volume and XR stages.

Making the "impossible" possible for film, broadcast, sports, and live event production teams, GhostFrame will present its game-changing virtual production toolkit at the NAB Show.

GhostFrame’s powerful suite of features for virtual production and XR stages makes it possible to simultaneously capture multiple independent images on camera while the human eye sees only one. The creative possibilities of this innovative and patented technology can be witnessed live at NAB 2023 on the partner stands of ROE Visual, disguiseVizrt and more.

GhostFrame’s unique technology combines hidden chroma key compositing, hidden tracking, and multiple source video feeds into a single production frame; the creatives team chooses which elements are visible to the human eye and which are visible only to the camera. Multiple hidden dynamic content feeds can be played out, allowing the camera to capture each of the desired content frames while remaining comfortable for on-set actors and crew. The content-agnostic and flexible solution unlocks unlimited creativity without the need for additional hardware or losing processing and pixel capacity, all in a zero-latency environment.

GhostFrame has already been implemented into cutting-edge virtual production projects, including the Fox NFL Sunday studio where four cameras each view their own different virtual perspectives on the LED wall at the same time.

GhostFrame’s production toolkit offers a host of opportunities to the broadcasting industry; different audiences are fed the same footage with alternative backgrounds, opening up opportunities to reach a far wider audience demographic without timely post-production work.
