Special Presentation
Rosco and FuseFX Reveal Prototype for
Virtual Production

Rosco and FuseFX Reveal Prototype for Virtual Production at BSC Expo and now at the 2022 National ACS Awards for Cinematography.

Rosco Laboratories introduces a complete, user-friendly ecosystem that includes Rosco’s extensive library of cinematic backdrop assets, powered by cutting-edge virtual production technology from FuseFX.

The RDX LAB System enables Directors of Photography to retain greater creative control during production. Without the extensive pre-production or post-production creation and manipulation of digital assets, filmmakers experience all of the upsides of virtual production, with the added benefit of creative control on set. 

Don’t miss this special presentation from Rosco’s Head of Technical Development Phil Greenstreet, fresh off the plane from LA to tell us all about it.
 Saturday April 30th from Noon until 1pm @ MERCURY CX CINEMA
