Big picture - Why invest in Grooveme
We've partnered with the best in the music business to bring an unforgettable sound and vision experience to potentially millions worldwide. Our first GrooveME™ holage video and ZoneME™ sound recording were made at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in October 2014. Ever since, we've been building our catalogue of artists and performances with many more exciting names interested in taking part.
MAKING MUSIC HISTORY
THE HOLAGE® IS A ‘HOMAGE’ TO BOTH ARTISTS & MUSICIANS + THE HOLOGRAPHIC ART FORM.
Developed over a number of years from the world of Visual Effects [VFX] for Film and TV and now perfected by GrooveME to represent the most lifelike 3D projected appearance possible.
This is true for both ‘iconic’ artist extraction from archive film materials and also using the most sophisticated High Definition recording methods for stunning replication of artists today.
The HOLAGE is integral to the GrooveME NOW experience utilising the new holographic art form but maintaining the creativity integrity of original performance.
So believable, it’s unbelievable!
The most realistic 3D sound experience ever, introducing the ZONEME spatial soundscape.
What’s so different? Well the sound appears to come from the individual performer e.g. the singers voice from the singers mouth, and not through the PA system or a bank of speakers either side.
Working with the Audio Acoustics team at Salford University Manchester, GrooveME have developed the ZONEME system to capture spatially recorded sound channels. These recorded channels are manipulated through the ZONEME software in a vertical and horizontal 360∘array of speaker technology previously thought uncommercial for most music performance applications. Until now.
The amazing ZONEME technology is installed in the GrooveME NOW mobile theatres, appearing at music festivals and special events around the world.
Where words fail, music speaks
Sound and vision experiences are set to become a lucrative entertainment opportunity born from innovative technologies like GrooveME™. From holage concerts to static displays, festivals or even karaoke, the potential applications for GrooveME™ technology are limited only by imagination. The future of live music performance has arrived and we're ready to make history.
