With this announcement, AJA's Corvid 44, Corvid 88 and KONA 5 high density, multi-format video I/O cards are certified for use in Zero Density's Reality EngineTM virtual studio system.
Zero Density, a virtual studio and augmented reality systems provider has entered into a strategic partnership with video hardware engineers AJA Video Systems.
With this announcement, AJA’s Corvid 44, Corvid 88 and KONA 5 high density, multi-format video I/O cards are certified for use in Zero Density’s Reality EngineTM virtual studio system.
Whereas the initial release of Reality 1.0 supported multiple video I/O cards, with Reality Engine Version 2.0 the research and development team is supporting AJA hardware.
Commenting on the partnership, Kuban Altan, VP of R&D, said: “There are plenty of capable video cards in the market but what makes AJA cards stand out from the rest are their unparalleled technical features, reliability and stability, in addition to global availability and support. Consequently, AJA video cards are now the only ones we are certifying for use in our solutions.”
Commenting on the announcement, Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems, added: “Zero Density’s Reality Engine has the power to transform news broadcasts with stunning real-time virtual sets and augmented reality-enhanced stories that give the viewer a whole new take on a story.”
“This remarkable level of throughput requires the most advanced and most reliable video I/O, and we’re pleased to deliver that with our Corvid 44, 88 and KONA 5 cards.”
Recently, Zero Density went on air with the world’s first ray-traced virtual studio at NAB 2019.
In doing this Zero Density utilised AJA’s video I/O cards and merged both products during a live production demonstration.
As per an official statement, the two companies will continue collaborating to “bring forward-looking technology demonstrations to life, opening up new opportunities for the future of broadcast”.
