Powered by Sony, Peris Digital brings a historical costume collection into the 21st century

Sony’s highest resolution camera technology enables Peris Digital to create state-of-the-art digital garments for virtual productions in film and television for major companies such as Netflix, Apple and Disney.

Founded in 2021, Peris Digital is the subsidiary of Peris Costumes, costume designers and curators since 1856. The company’s clothing has been featured in film and television, including films such as Dune, Disney’s live-action Mulan and hit television series such as Bridgerton, The Queen’s Gambit and Peaky Blinders.

Thanks to Sony-powered photogrammetry technology, over seven million garments from the Peris Costume archives can now be recreated as digital scans and brought to life with incredible realism with post-production visual effects (VFX).

In addition to creating digital clothing, Peris Digital also uses its photogrammetry rig of 144 Sony Alpha 7C and Alpha 7R IV cameras to scan actors when creating digital mannequins and digital doubles.

Digital mannequins can be 3D printed and edited virtually, saving time and money on costume fittings. Digital doubles, including photorealistic hand and face scans, can be animated as both backgrounds and heroic characters due to the superb image quality of Sony’s 61MP resolution.

By using photogrammetry with Sony’s excellent resolution and high-speed data transmission, Peris Digital sets a new industry standard compared to CGI or traditional 3D techniques. Peris Digital’s solution not only replicates unique textures and intricate costume details with 61MP accuracy, but also allows for reduced post-production time while generating the highest level of quality and agility for VFX with truly lifelike end results.

In addition to Peris Digital’s main rig in Madrid, the company is also expanding the use of mobile rigs with over 100 cameras for fast, high-quality on-set scanning anywhere in the world.

Jesus Luque, CTO at Peris Digital commented:

“Without models, garments can be customized to our customers’ needs, and we can achieve a complete result in just 2-3 hours of processing by scanning existing materials and garments in seconds. We hold our heritage as costume curators dear to our hearts and are proud to be able to bring our costumes to new audiences in true-to-life detail using Sony’s highest definition technology.”

Yasuo Baba, Director of Digital Imaging, Sony Europe BV added:

“It was our pleasure to support Peris Costumes’ digital transformation and to witness the incredible growth of Peris Digital. From setting up and programming the rig with our Camera Remote SDK for optimal camera sync, to having the costumes come to life on screen, we look forward to supporting Peris Digital’s next developments and their position at the forefront of the digital costume industry to claim.”

Peris Digital has made a name for itself in the film and television industry and wants to expand further into the gaming sector. Harnessing the power of Web3 to reach even larger audiences, the company strives to clothe the metaverse with next-level realism.
