Opening of the volumetric studio in Babelsberg.

On June 11, 2018, the starter’s pistol was fired for the volumetric studio in Potsdam’s Babelsberg district. Actress Emilia Schüle (known from Ku’damm 59, Traumfabrik) was the first person to be recorded in the volumetric studio. The studio’s 3D Human Body Reconstruction technology from Fraunhofer HHI creates hologram-like representations of real people. The actors recorded in this way can be integrated into real and virtual worlds and spectators can view the person from different angles. For the first time in Europe, the new technology can also be used for commercial productions.
