Virtual Studio

A virtual studio is a type of augmented reality used in broadcasting. A physical studio is filmed, and at the same time virtual content is placed in a 3D virtual location, whose viewpoint camera is mapped to the same relative location as the physical camera, in real-time. This gives the virtual content the same perspective.

Physical and virtual content is then overlaid on real time in the feed, as simply as combining two visual channels. This means the actors in the physical studio can see it on the screens as they run through it.
