Immediate access to Deutsche Telekom’s latest 5G technologies is the most important enabler for making mobile entertainment content spatially explorable in the future.
Volucap gets direct access to Deutsche Telekom 5G API.
Only 5 companies are part of the program and Volucap is one of them. Together we are once again pushing the boundaries of what is technically possible and defining the future of the entertainment and communications industry. – to build new consumer experiences based on 5G technology.
Deutsche Telekom has built a unique indoor and outdoor testbed in hubraum in Berlin where developers, startups, enterprises and hyperscalers can test 5G APIs directly in a fully functional 5G standalone core network. For optimal testing, which will start in the second quarter of 2022, Deutsche Telekom will provide application servers directly connected to the network and Deutsche Telekom’s edge clouds. An Internet breakout integrated into the testbed will also be provided.
Volucap’s Studio is located on 1830 square feet (170 sq meters) in the FX Center within Studio Babelsberg. The almost 13 feet (4 meter) high light rotunda is equipped with a minimum of 32 cameras that capture every movement and facial expression from a 360° perspective. Inside the room, people and objects can be scanned three-dimensionally and lifelike. Recordings are later transformed into structured and animated 3D surfaces by intelligent software algorithms. Eventually, filmed subjects can be placed into any AR, MR, VR, 360, or 2D video/web application on a variety of devices — such as phones, holographic headsets, and Windows Mixed Reality Immersive Headsets.
Volucaps portfolio includes recordings for high-end feature film productions like “Matrix Resurrections” and experiences including musicians like “Die Fantastischen Vier” and “The BossHoss”, fashion designer Lana Müller and basketball sports legend and team captain of the Bonner Baskets, Josh Mayo. It also includes the tagesschau 2025 experience which shows the future of news as well as important contemporary witnesses for preserving history for future generations and more.
