Today the Royal Shakespeare Company announced a new production of William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest, produced in collaboration with Intel and in association with The Imaginarium Studios. The companies will collaborate to create a revolutionary production as part of RSC’s winter season 2016. For the first time, performance capture technology will be used to render an animated character live on the Royal Shakespeare Theatre stage. Standard Intel technology is used to manage massive data processing required for live digital content projection – from Intel® Xeon™ to Intel® Core™ i7 processors.
