Today Supersphere introduces ArcRunner, a new platform for the live entertainment industry, creating a new path for artist performances in the physical and virtual worlds.
ArcRunner arrives at a time when the live entertainment industry seeks to find ways to recreate the magic and fan experience of a live performance. ArcRunner can create any world imaginable for artists to perform in or even recreate the stagecraft from a full global tour production; it can fully and accurately recreate an artist’s existing stage layout, set design, lighting grid, and so on.
“Our goal at Supersphere has always been to bring fans closer to the things they love, and our world needs those connections now more than ever,” stated Lucas Wilson, Supershphere founder and executive producer. “ArcRunner makes a high-level toolset approachable, and gives a creative team the ability to work on a live, virtual show together, like they would at a physical show. Lighting Directors control their grid in realtime. Visual artists mix their work live to the music. And performers continue to expand how they reach their audiences.”
Until now, available virtual production toolsets have been bespoke and expensive. ArcRunner is designed for scale, portability, and cost efficiency, allowing a wider range of artists and teams than ever before to stage virtual productions and make a more meaningful connection with fans.
Creative teams including lighting directors and live audio engineers can also operate in real time during the performance, creating an experience that bridges the gap between virtual and physical performances.
