UNIVERSAL STUDIOS OPENS UNIVERSAL VIRTUAL STAGE 1 (USV1)
Universal Studios announced its opening of the Universal Virtual Stage 1 (UVS1). Sound Stage 36 has been converted into a pre-rigged, pre-calibrated virtual production studio with a green screen stage that includes motion capture and real-time camera tracking for on-set visualization capabilities. The facility also offers two editing bays, a 60 terabyte server room and production office space attached to the stage.
The project transformed the 6,800 square foot Sound Stage into a self-contained facility with a 40 foot x 80 foot green screen cyc, a suite of editing bays and production office space with a conference room. The stage is a versatile addition to the Studios’ production and postproduction services for both internal and third-party productions. It comes as a package deal or "Ala Carte," says Jeanne Cordova, VP of Marketing, Publicity/Special Events.
