To provide creative students with the highest level of education, the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) recognized the need for an extended reality (xR) stage as part of their landmark 10.9-acre expansion project of Savannah Film Studios.
Savannah College of Art and Design
Full xR system design & workflow integration for the first full-scale, turnkey, collegiate xR volume.
Our technical team integrated the full system design & workflow: all the way through from design to onsite installation, and system commissioning. Using the disguise xR workflow with DeNyse LED solutions, the collegiate xR volume now allows numerous students from different majors to further explore xR workflows and become designers and film producers of the future.
After visiting one of our previously installed xR stages and discussing all needs for and beyond the volume, SCAD felt confident that Meptik provided the expertise and experience to successfully implement the xR technology.
Meptik is also heavily composed of SCAD alumni - making this project's success a personal mission. "Being a SCAD-founded, SCAD-driven company, it's exciting to invest the skills we've learned in xR to ignite generations of students to come", explains Nick Rivero.
The xR stage is made up of a 60 x 16 ft curved LED wall with a 38 x 20 ft LED ceiling, featuring a stYpe RedSpy camera tracking system. The entire studio is powered by disguise xR technology, running on disguise vx 4 and rx II servers.
The facility is geared towards training students at a collegiate level into professional workflows: what they learn at SCAD, they’re able to use one-to-one in the real world.
“As a student working on an xR stage, it is really a dream come true to be working on technology of this caliber at such an early stage in my career. It felt like I was working within a small production company and the ability to collaborate in that way is simply unmatched at the collegiate level.” - Sean Hussey, SCAD film and television junior.
