Introducing Capture Suite

Everything you need to capture, compress, and distribute volumetric video.

Making software of substance.

Since 2017 Soar has been working quietly in the corner building robust and reliable capture software. Now we are walking away from the corner and into the spotlight with Capture Suite, already used and beloved by major Hollywood studios and independent creators alike.

Capture
  • Create in real-time or capture raw and process offline
  • Industry-leading calibration and setup time — calibrate in a minute, get set up in less than an hour
  • Record a person with as few as 4 cameras
  • Support for up to 1024x1024 depth and up to 4K texture resolution with Azure Kinect sensors and capable hardware
  • Export in Soar’s optimized file format, PLY or OBJ sequence
  • Snap framerates to 24 or 30 FPS

  • CMS and hosting for uploading and sharing captured content
  • Web-based portal for managing users and bandwidth consumption

Real 3D livestreams.
No hacks, no 2D phonies.

Other applications may claim to do livestreaming, but they often just mean capturing local, 2D video using off-the-shelf cam software or hacking together a workflow using external libraries and tools.

Soar's livestreaming capabilities are built-in. Soar allows you to livestream the full mesh and texture directly from your capture stage into 3D applications with low latency.
