The purpose of the Digital Simulation of Performing Arts (DSPA) system is to serve creative teams of theater performing arts, to provide performance and creation groups with a digital simulation integration tool that was developed domestically. The system includes seven subsystems, including “Director, Stage, Lighting, Audio, Imaging, Effects and Character” that allow stage sets, lighting changes, soundtracks and image projection contents to be set individually; the point of time for all screen transitions can also be controlled freely, just like a stage supervisor executing the entire show. Any seats and angles within the theater can also be simulated to observe and appreciate all designed results.
Photorealistic Lighting Effects
A powerful 3D animation engine is used to simulate real lightings in professional theaters and display different technical specifications and illuminance. Effects such as brightness, angle, position, effect sheets, colored-paper, palette, soft light and light beam can all be freely adjusted. Gamma 2.0 setting is used for the dimming curve, providing light changes that best match the visual sensations in theaters.
Import 3D model
Various theater space databases from the Taiwan Traditional Theater Center are built-in, so it is equipped with the 3D models of technical equipment including curtain, lighting, speakers, rotating stage, projector and masking etc. You can also customize or import 3D models drawn by yourself, and import customized stage props into the system for use (supports the .FBX file format).
Export Various Charts
All seven subsystems have the function to output charts, including light setting diagram, light focus diagram, stage object layout, props list and music video list etc. Related personnel can refer to these forms while working whether during the creation or performance periods, effectively improving communication efficiency and reducing production cost.
Use with VR
Enter the theater through virtual reality; experience the performance you designed in full-scale. You can walk around technical spaces including the auditorium, stage and even the lighting catwalks etc. to understand the structure and the composition inside the theater more intuitively. This function only supports HTC VIVE; if this equipment is not available, 360° panoramic video outputted by this system can also be used with mobile phones to experience the VR effects.
