Creating structure and beauty where none existed before— that’s the elusive goal of virtual set technology. The technology has had its share of criticisms, a censure easy to understand when reviewing those first clunky-looking virtual set images that struggled with the difficulty of creating everything from highlights and shadows to textures and edges.

Today’s virtual set technologies no longer suffer from those first frustrations, with today’s solutions coming so far as to incorporate the beauty of 4K into the virtual reality realm.

Broadcasters and production companies are keen to experiment in 4K to see what new opportunities it unveils and to revel in the sheer beauty of 4K resolution.
