Industry issues addressed will include the challenges related to distribution and publishing that have been made more acute by the situation of the last few months, and will be examined by Atlas V, a multi-award-winning French production company and distributor, and RYOT, a major U.S. player in the production of innovative immersive content; in addition to virtual production, which has been propelled to prominence thanks to the opportunities provided by technologies such as volumetric capture, as exemplified by the American companies Metastage, who are 3D-hologram experts and the first American partner of Microsoft’s capture system, and Scatter, whose product, Depthkit, is among the most used by independent creators.

Lastly, XR Salon welcomes Savannah Niles, a multidisciplinary designer, technologist and strategist, whose journey has included time at MIT, Walt Disney Imagineering, and Twitter before she made her way to American mixed-reality start-up Magic Leap, where she is currently in charge of collaboration and copresence platforms. Her presentation on the potential of mixed and augmented reality in culture, and all spheres of life, will serve as an introduction to beginners and inspiration to seasoned veterans.
