Depthkit Studio is volumetric video for the new spatial content landscape, bringing genuine recordings of real people into 3D multiverses. Volumetric video is so compelling because our brains are wired to recognize humanity. We rebel against the vacant synthetic puppetry of deepfakes and uncanny CGI.
Ten years ago, the team at Scatter launched the prototype for Depthkit, the first ever creative tool for volumetric video. Since then, we've worked alongside a powerful community of creative pioneers, independent in spirit and ambitious in reach. Together, we've taken volumetric filmmaking from Eminem to HBO, from Sundance to the Emmys. Now, this creative ecosystem is graduating to full-body, 360 volumetric video with Depthkit Studio.
Depthkit Studio is available as a paid subscription license for partners in our Pilot Program. In the Depthkit Studio pilot we work closely with a limited group of select creative companies, tailoring our support services to your needs and including your feedback in our product roadmap. For those with the vision to take up the mantle and shape our early technology, you'll get in on the ground floor of the most important step forward in video technology of our times.
