Presented by Augustus Color, A Cloud Hub for Global Productions will also feature representatives from Eastman Kodak and the University of Roma Tre. The event is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, 20 May, at the Cannes Film Festival’s Italian Pavilion in the Hotel Barrière Le Majestic (Salon Marta).

It provides tools to manage and share assets with partners around the globe quickly, economically and securely. Recent projects that have relied on WCPMedia Services include HBO‘s The Young Pope, Disney’s Tini: The New Life of Violetta and AMBI Media Group‘s Bent.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

1
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.
