INTERNATIONAL SOFTWARE COMPANY

Most software solutions companies claim to be innovative, but what does that really mean?

We think it’s more than just the technical excellence of the product, it’s about giving your team the space and tools to think outside the bounds of what’s currently possible. 

At Pixotope, our fantastically fun, passionate, and diverse people make our culture of openness, positivity, knowledge sharing, collaboration, and yes, innovation, possible. 

We know that when you feel excited by your work and team, you’re more likely to step away from the ordinary in pursuit of the extraordinary.

This mindset helps us chase our common goal together: make virtual production accessible to all media producers and have a blast while doing it.

History of Pixotope

What could be called our origin story began in 2013. Back then, we were known as The Future Group and we were very busy reimagining what broadcast content could be. By harnessing the power of real-time game engine technology, we saw a future where immersive and experiential storytelling was the rule, not the exception. In 2017, we put our ideas to the test when The Future Group premiered the world’s first Interactive Mixed Reality game show, Lost In Time, on Discovery Networks’ TV Norway.

To bring our vision to life for Lost In Time, we had to invent the solutions we needed. There just wasn’t anything else in the market at that point (unless of course you’re working with a Hollywood-size budget). So we invented a unique studio graphics software, mobile front, and backend technology and established a world-class service department for mixed reality production.

The learnings and deep understanding of real-time virtual production workflows that came from our experience on Lost in Time enabled us to create the Pixotope software, launching it officially in February 2019. After that, the demand for virtual productions began to skyrocket, and our Pixotope software along with it – we were on to something!

In 2021, the company officially became Pixotope and we haven’t looked back since. We’re very proud and humbled to say that our solutions have been used to create amazing content by the world’s most prestigious brands including the NFL, League of Legends, Euro-vision, and The Weather Channel.
