New Integration: 8th Wall now supports Tetavi volumetric video with an end-to-end WebAR solution

8th Wall is pleased to announce our latest integration with our volumetric video partner, Tetavi. Starting today, developers can now easily add high-quality holograms created using Tetavi’s portable end-to-end system to any 8th Wall WebAR project. 


With its fully mobile solution that is easy to deploy and operate, Tetavi’s studios can be set up anywhere within four hours. Tetavi studios do not require the use of a green screen, and only need 4 depth cameras, a speedy timesaving setup for users. This quick set up enables 8th Wall users to bring capture studios to their talent, expanding geographic reach and unlocking creative opportunities.


Founded in 2016, Tetavi is a world leading volumetric platform strategically designed to transform the industries of entertainment, film, music, fashion, and social media. Tetavi’s cutting edge technology provides users with a complete platform—from capturing to efficient compression and editing. It’s capturing capabilities enables high fidelity, photorealistic, live-action holograms with sub-millimeter accuracy in a significant 3m diameter stage. Its web compression optimizes the balance between file size with model quality, and supports seamless audio sync that can be used in 8th Wall projects.

Here’s How To Get Started 

Get Your Tetavi Volumetric Video File

To get your Tetavi volumetric video file, you must create volumetric video content using Tetavi capturing systems. Once your capture is complete, use Tetavi’s provided WTETConvert utility to convert your volumetric clip into the .mp4 and .tvm files you need to upload to the 8th Wall Cloud Editor.

Clone the Tetavi Sample Project

Now that you have a Tetavi volumetric video, clone one of the Tetavi sample projects from the 8th Wall Project Library. 8th Wall has templates for both A-Frame and three.js projects that are fully integrated with the latest Tetavi volumetric video player SDK. 

Drag Your Tetavi File Into Your 8th Wall Project

Once your new project is created, drag and drop your Tetavi volumetric video files (.tvm + .mp4) into the "Assets'' folder in the 8th Wall Cloud Editor. Upon upload, you can reference these files from the A-Frame primitive or three.js tetaviScenePipelineModule(). Feel free to customize the styling and functionality of the playback controls to your liking.


Test and Publish Your Project

Once you Save + Build, you can preview your project by scanning the QR code at the top with a smartphone or tablet. If everything looks good, you’re ready to publish. Congrats!
