Volucap wins the Berlin Brandenburg Innovation Award 2020

The volumetric studio Volucap from the media city Babelsberg is one of six winners of this year's Berlin Brandenburg Innovation Award.

The developed volumetric studio manages to record real people and their movements in three dimensions and to create digital doubles. This technology replaces the very complex steps for creating three-dimensional digital people. This means that actors can be worked with directly as on a normal film set, without motion-capture suits. The volumetric videos of the characters look more realistic and the costs are lower.

Total 221 applications

Impressive inventions, sustainable solutions and support during the crisis: The innovators of 2020 have been chosen. Out of 221 applications for the Berlin Brandenburg Innovation Award, six teams stood out in particular. Thus, not only five prizes were awarded, but also a special prize for the first time.

Due to current regulations and hygiene measures, the award ceremony took place exclusively digitally. In order to give the award winners and all other interested parties the chance to exchange ideas, there is a digital marketplace.

"In this exceptional year, the Berlin Brandenburg Innovation Award makes it clear how much we depend on courageous people who make not only an economic but also a social contribution to Berlin and Brandenburg. We can count on such innovators - and that is why they are rightly being honoured today."

Brandenburg's Minister of Economics Jörg Steinbach
