Ncam Opens New Studios In Europe And South America

News Image
Ncam has opened two new locations built to support the growing demand for smart stages and training facilities in Europe and Latin America.

Located in Prague and Rio de Janeiro, the new premises add to Ncam’s existing London and Los Angeles bases, doubling the company’s global footprint.

"As virtual production picks up steam, the needs of creative teams are changing rapidly," said Nic Hatch, CEO of Ncam. "Each of these new locations is not just an office and training site but a fully-fledged studio, giving people access to the tech they need to blend live action and CG with the same equipment used by the likes of Disney, The Weather Channel and CNN."

Planned to feature capture stages including green screen cycloramas, each location has already brought new levels of creativity to films, TV broadcasts and live events including an upcoming feature film with More Is More and Kvant LED. With these new facilities, rigged with the latest equipment and Ncam’s camera tracking solution, teams can learn new tech, test workflows and problem solve in a worry-free environment. If a sunset needs to last all day, or a location needs to change from Italy to Hong Kong, it’s as easy as clicking a button.

In addition to supporting the creation of new productions, both the Prague and Rio de Janeiro studios are set to act as training grounds for educational partners and provide a location for in-house experts to demo new Ncam tech and features.

"The number of smaller productions has grown exponentially in the past year, and we saw a real need for a new studio and training space in Eastern Europe," said Vojtěch Horký, head of the Prague facility and a champion of virtual production techniques. "As the world leader in camera tracking, we aim to bring the tech to a wider audience through a localized approach."
