It is re-named annually in celebration and memory of an ASC member. This year’s Heritage Award is dedicated to the memory Linwood Dunn, ASC. Twice elected ASC president, Dunn was also a governor of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in two different branches, and was instrumental in the formation of the Academy’s visual effects branch. His many accolades include an Oscar for visual effects in 1949 for the original Mighty Joe Young, the Academy’s prestigious Gordon E. Sawyer Award and the ASC Presidents Award. Always interested in technology, Dunn’s innovations include the first zoom lens and the first optical printer. At age 93, he was involved in the development of digital projection. The Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood was named for his contributions to the motion picture industry.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
