Spatial Video Innovations at AWE 2024 

Last week we checked out AWE (Augmented World Expo) in Long Beach.

Our main goal is to see what’s new in spatial video. With Blackmagic’s recently teased URSA Cine Immersive camera, we thought there would be some new, exciting developments in video…

…there wasn’t much.

But that doesn’t mean there weren’t some interesting finds.

What Caught Our Attention

  • SpatialCut, a video editor designed for the Vision Pro, allows editing of spatial video and converting 2D video to 3D using AI depth mapping. A desktop web version is in the works.

  • Sony's Spatial Reality Display, available in 15.6-inch and 27-inch options, offers glasses-free 3D viewing by tracking the user's face. It has potential applications in 3D modeling and virtual scene design.

  • Playbook, a collaborative online 3D builder, aims to be the "Figma for 3D creation." It also utilizes AI to render and style 3D scenes with fine-tuned control.

  • Freeaim VR shoes allow users to walk in place while exploring virtual spaces, reducing motion sickness and providing a more immersive experience.
