Volume Operations

Brain bar

The team of artists and engineers operating the equipment that drives a smart stage or any space used for virtual production. Areas of responsibility include content distribution, image manipulation, camera tracking, recording, and creative visualization of data. Also known as volume operations and mission control.

Mission control

The team of artists and engineers operating the equipment that drives a smart stage or any space used for virtual production. Areas of responsibility include content distribution, image manipulation, camera tracking, recording, and creative visualization of data. Also known as the brain bar and volume operations.

On-set operations

The team responsible for managing any technical difficulties related to the volume during production operations and maintain the key creatives.

Open Sound Control (OSC)

A protocol for networking sound synthesizers, computers, and other multimedia devices for purposes such as musical performance or show control. OSC’s advantages include interoperability, accuracy, flexibility and enhanced organization and documentation.

Projection mapping

A method for warping and conforming content onto a surface. Projection mapping can be used to map content onto the geometry of an LED volume. especially for complex shapes like curves and multiple surfaces.

Rear projection (RP)

A in-camera compositing process in which an image (such as a previously photographed, or printed background plate or 3D environment) is displayed behind the foreground subject. Often used for driving shots when a fully 3D environment may be unnecessary, although real-time engines can also be used for this effect.

Video routing

The process of routing video signals through devices such as switches and matrices.

Volume

The physical space in which performance capture is recorded. Also refers to a nearly enclosed LED stage in which a volume of light is emitted, or a display surface for projected content.
