Interested in finding out how Metastage can mesh with your project?

At Metastage, we make holographic video – holograms of people and performances from every angle.

Your audiences can interact with your holograms in augmented reality, virtual reality, and on 2D screens.

Our multi-stage process uses large data sets to efficiently generate a refined point cloud.

This produces a high quality mesh and texture that is compressed to HD video comparable file sizes.

The results are beautiful captures at low file sizes.

This is a first pass.

No additional treatments or edits have been made.

This is right out of the box.

Metastage brings authentic human performances into digital worlds. We are the first US partner for the Microsoft Mixed Reality Capture system and pair it with an expert team housed in a state-of-the-art facility in Southern California.

Our aim is to put real people inside your immersive experiences, creating high fidelity assets that can scale from mobile augmented reality to high-end interactive virtual reality.

Metastage is pure professionalism, plain and simple. From the moment we entered the studio, everything was ready to go, run like clockwork, and comfortable. They are prepared to work with the unknowns that can arise when working with celebrity talent, going as far as to re-schedule their entire staff to a weekend when a situation arose for us. They are continually thinking on their feet and ensuring the highest quality output. They are careful to test and analyze any potential issues and suggest adjustments to things like creative and wardrobe. In the end, the results speak more loudly than the rest. The output looks spectacular, even with the very harsh file size constraints we’ve insisted on. They are willing to go the extra mile and make technical fixes in post, and to deliver assets in a timely manner, or even on a rush schedule if needed.”

“If you want the best in volumetric capture, Metastage is the choice, no question.”

Graham Roberts / New York Times

“Their extensive knowledge and mastery of volumetric capture techniques situates them as one of the top choices in the industry.”

Antoine Cayrol / Atlas V

"It has been an absolute pleasure to work in collaboration with Metastage. Their workspace is very well-equipped and their expertise is unparalleled. We spent a single day of shooting onsite at Metastage and the guidance of their team members was integral to the success we had working within such a short timeframe. Their staff was able to coach us, even well in advance, about every detail including what materials to use for our actor’s costumes and props to ensure a high definition recording. In addition, they were able to get back to us with the required deliverables well within the timeline required for our production process. We are very satisfied with their work and happily recommend them to any other parties seeking to create high quality experiences that utilize volumetric capture.”
