Louis Normandin, Wild Capture COO, will be at the Augmented World Expo USA 2023 to discuss, among other subjects, the importance of standardizing volumetric video formats.
Wild Capture heads to Augmented World Expo USA 2023 an event started in 2010 to accelerate the adoption of augmented reality by bringing together the industry: developers, creators, founders, product leads, C-level executives, enthusiasts, media and analysts. The first AWE event started with only 300 attendees and a handful of exhibitors. Today, AWE events have grown to thousands of attendees from around the world, hundreds of sponsors and exhibitors and an extensive network of professionals in Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and other immersive technologies.
The in-person expo and conference take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif., from May 31 – June 2, with virtual sessions taking place on AWELive.com. Louis Normandin, Wild Capture COO, will join XR industry professionals and thought leaders at AWE as both online session presenter and conference track chair.
Wild Capture is setting the standard for digital-to-human workflows that can be seamlessly integrated across 3D pipelines. The Wild Capture Digital Human Platform is a suite of AI-driven tools that enables the integration of volumetric video and realistic digital humans. The company’s core Unify Solver technology optimizes the transformation of volumetric footage into standard 3D animated assets that integrate into most existing pipelines.

Artists, creators, and audiences continually adapt new technologies to their existing skillsets, inspirations, and experiences. In this AWE.Live online session, Louis Normandin explores the crucial role of interoperability in the XR ecosystem. As 3D capture, processing, and distribution technologies constantly evolve and scale, he will discuss the importance of standardizing volumetric video formats to help drive usability and improve overall efficiency.
“When the technical pipelines that support immersion-based content work in harmony with all users to span the gap in user experience, enablement across the medium advances faster and more efficiently to drive growth,” says Normandin.
