History of Pixotope & The Future Group
Established in 2013, The Future Group got started by breaking new ground reimagining what broadcast content could be in the future. In 2017, The Future Group premiered the world’s first Interactive Mixed Reality game show, Lost In Time, on Discovery Networks’ TV Norway.
For Lost In Time, The Future Group invented a unique studio graphics software, mobile front, and backend technology and established a world-class service department for mixed reality production.
The Pixotope® software, built on the knowledge developed for Lost In Time, was released in February 2019. With the significant uptake in mixed reality and virtual production, Pixotope® software was adopted by the worlds most prestigious productions. In 2021 the company changed it's name to Pixotope Technologies to reflect the increased focus on developing the technology behind those productions.
Pixotope® is the world’s leading Mixed Reality solution for live media production. Leveraging the full power of the Unreal (UE4) render engine, Pixotope® empowers content creators and broadcasters to produce best in class Mixed Reality content for television, online streaming, and film.
Mixed Reality for media production enables content owners, creators, and distributors to tell stories in new and exciting ways, catching the attention of an increasingly fragmented audience.
