Pixotope on Enhancing Virtual Production Education

The Pixotope team has launched Pixotope Pocket. This new mobile application enables students to use their mobile devices to produce immersive creative content with virtual production.

Pixotope has released a new app called Pixotope Pocket, which is now available as part of their Education Program. This app is designed to provide aspiring virtual production professionals with convenient access to augmented reality (AR) and virtual studio (VS) tools and workflows. With Pixotope Pocket, students can bypass the need for a fully equipped studio and instead use just a smartphone with the latest iOS and a PC to create powerful and immersive content from anywhere, including dorm rooms.

“The introduction of Pixotope Pocket represents the next evolution of the Pixotope Education Program,” says Pixotope Education Program Manager, Carina Schoo. “While we’ve made great strides in addressing the virtual production skills gap, we knew the technology could be made even more accessible to aspiring creators. The first step was to provide students access to our platform via their media facilities through the Pixotope Education Program. With Pixotope Pocket we are taking this one step further.” 

With the introduction of Pixotope Pocket, the Pixotope Education Program expands how students can engage with virtual production tools and workflows. Students can now access virtual production tools via both their school's existing media production infrastructure and their technology. 

Pixotope Education Program partner, the University of Gloucestershire, played a crucial role in bringing Pixotope Pocket to market. To ensure that Pixotope Pocket meets the needs of today’s virtual production students with precision, a group of students from the Digital Media course tested the app in a workshop and provided valuable feedback.  

“In order for our students to succeed in their careers they need to be able to understand technology, whether they’re using it themselves or commissioning someone else to use it,” says Anne Dawson, Head of the School of Creative Industries, University of Gloucestershire. “It’s very important that we partner with leaders in the industry, like Pixotope, to make the technology more accessible and help our students achieve this understanding.”
