HUMAN + TECHNOLOGY + SHOW

Presentation

An amazing sandbox where technological innovation meets human performance.  

Based at The 7 Fingers Creation and Production Center, LAB7 offers motion capture technologies, a video game engine and stage integrators.  

We explore how to adapt cutting-edge technologies to the physical realities and limitations of live performance, in partnership with CRITAC and other research institutions and programs. 

LAB7 contributes to transform the performing arts traditional stage into new, hybrid spaces: immersive scenography, interactive experiences, augmented, virtual or mixed reality. 

Dedicated to prototyping and applied research, LAB7 offers a collaborative approach to develop new artistic languages and to experiment with innovative creative processes. 

The labs

LAB 1 - Augmented reality and hybrid creative work

This first lab is essentially an opportunity to start using LAB7's equipment in real conditions and to validate the complete workflow of capture, modeling, real-time projection, and recording.  

LAB 2 - From quantum physics to pictoral art, sets made from movements

This second lab hosts two projects exploring non-figurative visual representations based on different types of motion capture.

LAB 3 - Extreme acrobatics and stage costumes

This third lab is an opportunity to push the limits of our Optitrack system, with the capture of extreme trampoline-wall movements. We are also exploring another technical challenge: motion capture in live performance conditions, notably using stage costumes.

Quebec has opened its embassy in the Metavers!

By Alexandre Teodoresco, Dec 2021

Following in the footsteps of other innovators such as the City of Seoul or recently Barbados, who have established a permanent presence in the Metaverse, Quebec has just opened its "embassy" in the virtual world.

Equipments

Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, LAB7 has an inventory that can be used for a variety of purposes, from small-scale experiments to more advanced  productions. With multimedia creation processes in mind our equipment inventory includes : Disguise's xR technology video server, Optitrack's real-time motion capture system, GrandMA, Unreal Engine, Notch, video projectors, gray projection screens and floor tiles, sound and lighting equipment.


Along with the Lab7 team, the equipment can be used in our different studios according to the desired configuration, with spaces ranging from 1,350 sq. ft. to 4,104 sq. ft..
