Digital Creation in the Physical World
- Presented by Unity and Sony's Spatial Reality Display

on-demand

Technology innovations are crossing the boundary between the physical and digital realms, in ways previously only imagined for some distant future. Some creative businesses are finding efficient ways to work and thrive in this blended world today. In this session you'll hear how filmmakers can interact with a 3D concept as though it were a tangible prop they can hold in their hands, how artists can transport directors into a fully imagined set months before building begins, and how designers can use real-world technologies that merge the physical and digital worlds in media and entertainment. Thaisa Yamamura, Head of Business Development at Sony Electronics joins this panel to discuss how the Spatial Reality Display is changing digital creation.
