Band Pro to Host One World on HD Open House


Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Band Pro Film & Digital will host its annual One World on HD Open House at its headquarters in Burbank, Dec. 17, following a new Digital Seminar Series, Dec. 15-16.

The popular mid-December event gives filmmakers a chance to hobnob with colleagues in a low-key, friendly atmosphere, with complementary food and drink. This year, in conjunction with the Santa Fe Digital Cinematography Workshops, the company is sponsoring an in-depth Sony F35 camera training session, led by the company’s head of digital cinematography technology, Jeff Cree. Known for his extensive CineAlta expertise, Cree will teach filmmakers the “secrets” of the F35’s menus. This day-long training, (geared towards DITs), is free to those who sign up through Band Pro.

The company will also host its first 3D Symposium—an informative panel and presentation on the state of 3D production, as well as technology displays from some of the most innovative camera, software and hardware manufacturers in the industry. – Scott Lehane

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.
