Multi-angle
video production

Capture everything - Frame live or in post.

... And live 360 video

Conventional and VR video production in one system.

Introducing Studio.One

AZilPix Studio.One is a multi-camera video capture and production system enabling immersive broadcasting of complex events, at low operational cost.

Ultra high-res video capture

Up to six 12-megapixel cameras with wide angle or fish eye lenses per server capture an event completely from multiple angles.

Virtual camera concept

The Studio.One server computes multiple simultaneous rectified or panoramic virtual cameras from any input camera in real-time live or in post-production. Pan-tilt-roll-zoom each virtual camera as if it were 360 video.

Low operational cost

No need to follow the action all the time when capturing an event : everything gets captured anyways. As a result, as few as a single operator can capture complex events. Post-production is a single person job as well.

Intuitive and powerful

Studio.One operation is easy to learn, intuitive and stimulates creativity. Create a unique visual language by framing in post-production.

360 and panoramic Video

Double-360x180 and panoramic rigs for 24/7 operation with live 4K stitching. Studio.One allows simultaneous live VR & convential video production with a single system, crew and workflow.

Take Control

Studio.One is an open system with well documented APIs, made to integrate in your production environment. It can be controlled remotely if operator acces to the event site is undesirable, e.g. medical surgery operations.
