Submarines and 4D
Just like in a Hollywood Blockbuster such as The Mandalorian, a Presenter must face the challenge of interacting with many Augmented Reality elements, such as a full-sized Submarine to the whole of South America!
So how as a Presenter do you make this Augmented Reality interaction look natural? How do you know exactly where you are in relation to the object? and how do you improve the overall experience for everybody?
This can be achieved by either building the AR object into the back plane of the content, so that as the Presenter you can see it on the LED screen you are on stood on or in front of. Or an object can be added to the front plane which gives you as the Presenter a broadcast view on a comfort monitor which can be placed under each camera. This means that with either of these two methods, you can walk behind and in front of an object.
But as lockdown measures are still at their most stringent, whether you are working on a large Augmented Reality set, webcast or from a home studio, most companies need a solution and an experienced Presenter which allows the event or show to go ahead without the Presenters leaving home.
In Annie’s home studio she has used her own home filming kit, green screen, and existing webcams.
From simple green screen presenting for a select audience and handling unlimited audience sizes through live Feeds from the home studio to even multi audience Team Calls, it is the rapport and experience from the professional Presenter that is essential to drive, manage the event or broadcast that creates a dynamic live virtual environment.
People will always take value and pleasure from face-to-face interaction. And whilst online has its limitations, there are now opportunities for companies to host virtual events, that due to the sheer number of attendees, risks and logistical implications, would simply not have been possible before .
