Blackmagic Design announced today that Five for Co. Ltd. has built a system for their new original interactive VR game, “Circle of Saviors,” using Blackmagic products, including ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K and ATEM Television Studio HD. The game includes one of the first introductions of Mixed Reality (MR) technology, which allows for live, free moving VR game play by the main player, and a second player using MR.

Five for Co. Ltd. is a Tokyo based company offering various services including game development, VR system development and 360° video productions. Their newest game, “Circle of Saviors” is an interactive action VR game that was shown at the recent Tokyo Game Show and Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017 in US.

MR images are a mix of VR and regular footage, allowing a player to play in the game while maintaining awareness of the physical world and allowing audiences to watch gameplay anywhere. With MR technology, Five for is able to produce two different virtual images in real time, one for the player’s POV and the other a real time composited image of a virtual set. To do this, Five for uses ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K and ATEM Television Studio HD, SmartView Duo and Teranex Mini Rack Shelf.
