Broadcast Production Awards: Stephen Arnold Music Comes Out With Four Wins


StephenArnoldMusic.logo1Stephen Arnold Music came up big at NewscastStudio’s annual Broadcast Production Awards, picking up four awards – including Best Overall Use of Music for CNN America’s Choice Debate “Super Open”, a fully orchestrated, three-act music score.  Other honors came for the studio’s work for China Global Television Network (CGTN), Scripps Television Stations and WDAF/FOX 4 Kansas City.

Now in its 11th year, the Broadcast Production Awards honor creatives in broadcast and streaming media across a variety of formats, including production and set designers, motion graphics designers, composers and product engineers. Other honorees included CCTV, CNN, NBC Sports and Sky News.


Stephen Arnold Music’s “Super Open” was used in the opening to CNN’s Democratic presidential debates. The robust orchestral score captures the drama and anticipatory atmosphere of the event through a stirring blend of live trumpets, trombones, French horns, strings and percussion.

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.
