  • News

80sixVideo technology company 80six provides high-end equipment and world-class technical services for virtual production, film & TV drama, live entertainment, broadcast, (e)sports and corporate events.


The company is hosting a series of Virtual Production Discovery Days, where film crews can experience one-to-one virtual production demos at its studios in Slough. 


The interactive event will give film and TV crew and production and post-production houses the opportunity to see live and on-set the real-time technologies powering LED stages


The sessions proved highly popular and were nearly sold out within 48 hours. Now 80six is extending the format of the two Virtual Production Discovery Days, on 15 and 16 September, and would love to hear from anyone wishing to attend


Opportunities on the day include:  


  • Experience using LED screens for in-camera VFX for shooting car scenes, either with backplates shot on-location or by creating a unique environment in Unreal Engine
  • See the parallax effect in action – how the camera and camera tracking systems integrate to produce final-pixel imagery
  • Talk 1-2-1 to the expert 80six technical team about using LED screens for in-camera visual effects
  • Privately discuss the specific requirements of your next production with the company’s co-founders
  • Meet some of the industry-leading manufacturers and suppliers behind the technology powering virtual production and ask your questions directly to them
  • Conversations with like-minded industry professionals over at the outdoor coffee shop


The event partners are: ROE Visual; Brompton Technology; Cooke Optics; Mo-sys; 3LR Lighting.
