DOCOMO’s XR Studio opening in Odaiba, Japan to include the new Mantis Vision Volumetric Studio 3iosk

In Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality News

January 21, 2021 – Mantis Vision, a provider of 3D image and volumetric video capture solutions, has today announced that its ‘Mantis Vision Volumetric Studio 3iosk’ volumetric video capture technology will be included within DOCOMO’s new ‘docomo XR Studio’ in Odaiba, Japan when it opens later this month. DOCOMO is Japan’s largest telecommunications company.

Esta Chiang, Volumetric Pipeline Technical Director of Mantis Vision, said: “Mantis Vision has seen many new volumetric video content creations this year, and we’re excited to see what new applications emerge from the new 3iosk Studio”.

Volumetric video capture utilizes an array of cameras to record people or objects in motion from all angles, in order to turn them into realistic 3D holograms. The resulting digital content can then be viewed from any angle on mobile devices and computers. The technology is already in use in a range of industries, including entertainment, sports, music videos, and gaming.

The Mantis Vision Volumetric Studio 3iosk captures dynamic 3D volumetric videos that can be shared as 3D assets in augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), virtual production or social media. With its small footprint and no green screen or render farm required, the Mantis Vision Volumetric Studio 3iosk is designed for use in commercial settings including retail stores, museums, events, theme parks and shopping malls. Based on patented technology and proprietary Volumetric Cameras (VoCams), Mantis Vision states that its Volumetric Studio 3iosk setup has “the fastest workflow from scan to share, with exceptional data quality and an easy-to-use interface.”

In addition, the 3iosk studio offers real-time live-streaming capability, allowing viewers to have live interactions with 3D holograms. The same solution can be used for live virtual concerts, interviews, E-sports and mixed reality training, according to the company.  

Through the opening of its XR Studio, DOCOMO will help to promote volumetric video technology, as well as collaborate with content creators, and will continue to explore new methods that utilize XR technology.
