Extended Reality manufacturer disguise will receive an Engineering, Science and Technology Emmay Award for its XR technology. The award winners will be honored on September 28 during a live ceremony.
“Receiving this award is a huge win for disguise and a testament to our efforts to redefine the world of production through our XR solution,” said disguise CEO Fernando Küfer. “We are grateful for our team who keep on pushing boundaries and our community of users who partner with us and use our technology to create amazing productions.”
In the past two years, the disguise XR platform has helped generate more than 600 real-time productions in 50 countries, including LED-based virtual productions for Netflix and Amazon Prime. Disguise’s advanced image processing capabilities allow for the seamless integration of computer-generated elements and environments with physical props and performers, creating a blended world where the physical and digital exist in perfect harmony.
For production teams, that means going beyond green screens to capture visual effects, lighting, reflections and shadows—all completely in-camera. Multiple locations can be filmed from a single studio in real-time, leading to a production environment where creative decisions can be made quickly and with improved collaboration from all crew on set. XR technology also provides the ability to extend sets digitally, giving creatives a limitless canvas to explore their vision.
"Back in 2019, we saw the promise that XR held for improved collaboration on sets, added time control while shooting and the ability to capture realistic lighting and reflections from CG graphics in-camera,” said Küfer. “In the past two and a half years since we launched our XR solution, we have seen wide, global democratization and uptake of XR. The appetite for virtual production is only growing and so is our commitment to listening to customers, building a virtual experience and technology platform, and helping our partners create experiences that defy expectations.”
