Volkswagen  ID.6 World Premiere 2021

The ID.6 world premiere was a important milestone for VW. The first full size SUV in the EV line up in the biggest SUV market in the world. SBF together with Disguise put together the largest full led XR studio with a led floor in China. Buy combining unreal engine environments we built together with disguises RX and VX servers with render stream, we were able to fully immerse the VW ID.6 in high resolution real-time worlds and really took the reflections to the next level in the content. Bringing the ARRI LF camera into the XR work flow was a first for us and looked amazing. 

This is just the first step for SBF in developing XR content for our automotive clients and we look forward to pushing the limits of this technology with unreal engine and disguise in the future. ​​​​​​​

Volkswagen's electric offensive is in full swing and the ID.6 represents the largest member of the company's dedicated EV lineup for now. Available exclusively in China, the purely electric SUV is a bigger brother of the global ID.4, and much like the five-seat-only model, it's available locally in two separate versions.

Once again, ARRI and MOCO have been incorporated into the XR virtual production process, with the addition of a 54-foot telescopic rocker arm and a track system for film and television shooting, forming a three-position shooting system. Through the use of XR system lens calibration function, 16mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm professional film and television lens, show a more perfect virtual space relationship.

The stage of this setup was installed in the virtual studio of XR Space 717 with a large LED curved screen (267 square meters) in a semi-encircled form. The screen has different curves. At the same time, a sky screen (147.5 square meters) and a ground screen (194.25 square meters) were added as light reflection.

To ensure the accuracy of data, SBF & Show Plus uses laser panoramic 3D scanning combined with manual measurement to build a high-precision scene model with an error of less than 2mm.

With such a small dot spacing LED screen, the total number of pixels is 1,6257 million, which is more than any previous XR setup. In order to ensure the shooting quality and meet the requirements of film and television level shooting, SBF & Show Plus cascaded two Disguise VX4 media servers, and the total output of LED screens reached 28 channels.
