Kinly launches XR studio

New XR studio from Kinly allows presenters to be fully immersed in digital content by replacing green screen with LED video displays.

Presentations are becoming ever-more sophisticated as companies seek to wow customers and partners alike to win new business. 

To this end, Kinly has launched its XR studio offering and is the first AV company to distribute this transformative technology on a global scale, according to the company.

The XR studio is billed as a comprehensive turnkey solution, designed to immerse users in a limitless virtual world for more dynamic and engaging experiences, bringing broadcast quality production events to the corporate and higher education market.

By replacing a green screen environment with LED video displays, the technology allows presenters to be fully immersed in digital content and virtual worlds. Users can see presentation content, colleagues and clients surrounding them, allowing conversations to become more natural and making subject matter content more engaging.

Limitless virtual world

The Kinly XR Studio environment is a limitless 360° virtual world, where hosts have complete freedom of movement and become fully immersed in their surroundings. A unique virtual set extension expands content beyond the physical LED environment, allowing the camera(s) to freely explore the virtual world, capturing a range of perspectives, or revealing additional content.

Augmented reality layers, such as 3D props, graphs or data can be incorporated alongside the presenter ‘on stage’, to emphasise and bring specific content to life. The presenter’s position is tracked on the XR Studio, allowing the AR graphics to appear in front or behind them as they walk around the AR graphic.

Another feature is the full body human ‘teleportation’, a technology that allows remote guests to join and present as if they were physically in the XR Studio. This is achieved through keying a live stream of the remote guest into the studio to allow the virtual remote guest to appear teleported alongside a real presenter in the room.

Simple solution

The XR Studio doesn’t require technical experience or a large studio team to produce broadcast quality output with AR graphics and extended VR sets – the XR Studio operation and content creation is managed though an intuitive user interface, operable via an iPad. 

When used in a corporate environment, Kinly’s XR studio allows speakers to address their audience during meetings or industry events, regardless of geographical location – perfect for reducing business travel to meet sustainability goals – and increases productivity, collaboration and idea sharing. 

In the education space, the XR Studio’s interactive approach allows for enhanced remote learning. Students can explore more complex subjects such as mechanics, medicine and engineering through 3D visualisations and real-time interaction — providing a better understanding of theoretical concepts and practical applications. 

“I am excited to launch our new XR studio offering,” said Simon Watson, Kinly’s global head of innovation. “This cutting-edge technology… represents a significant step forward in immersive collaboration — providing our clients with unparalleled tools to transform the way they communicate and engage.

“By integrating advanced VR, LED, and tracking technologies, we are not only enhancing the user experience but also paving the way for more sustainable and efficient business practices.

“Our XR solutions are designed to meet the diverse needs of various sectors, from education to corporate environments, and we are excited to see the profound impact they will have.”
