Kinly’s new XR Studio allows ‘full-body teleportation’

Kinly says XR studio will bring broadcast quality production events to the corporate and higher education market, as well as allowing remote participation and 'teleportation'

Kinly has announced the launch its global XR Studio offering. The XR Studio – unveiled at the pre-launch event at the Science Museum in London last month — immerses users in a virtual world, bringing broadcast quality production events to the corporate and higher education market. A notable feature is full body human ‘teleportation’, allowing remote guests to join and present as if they were physically in the XR Studio. The XR Studio is a turnkey solution that Kinly installs in an office, or education space.

The ‘teleportation’ is achieved through keying a live stream of the remote guest into the studio — to allow the virtual remote guest to appear teleported alongside a real presenter in the room. When used in a corporate environment, speakers are able to address their audiences during meetings or industry events, regardless of geographical location.

By replacing a green screen environment with LED video displays, the technology allows presenters to be fully immersed in digital content and virtual worlds. Users are able to see presentation content, colleagues and clients surrounding them. In this limitless 360° virtual world, hosts have freedom of movement and become fully immersed in their surroundings.

Meanwhile, in the education space, the Kinly XR Studio’s interactive approach allows for enhanced remote learning. Kinly says students can explore more complex subjects, such as mechanics, medicine, and engineering, through 3D visualisations and real-time interaction.

Augmented reality layers, such as 3D props, graphs or data can be incorporated alongside the presenter “on stage”, to emphasise and bring specific content to life. The presenter’s position is tracked on the XR Studio, allowing the AR graphics to appear in front or behind them as they walk around the AR graphic.

Simon Watson, global head of innovation, Kinly, said: “Kinly has an invested focus on immersive collaboration technology and will continue to add to its portfolio. Our XR solutions are designed to meet the diverse needs of various sectors, from education to corporate environments, and we are excited to see the profound impact they will have.”

He added: “Combining Kinly’s mature AV managed service offering with the innovative capabilities of Studio XR is what truly sets this solution apart. By integrating advanced VR, LED, and tracking technologies, we are not only enhancing the user experience but also paving the way for more sustainable and efficient business practices.”
