Sony Pictures Studios Launches Clean Truck Fleet

-

Sony Pictures Studios takes steps toward cleaner transport in the entertainment industry with clean diesel.
Sony Pictures Studios has upgraded its fleet of diesel, generator and camera trucks to achieve compliance with California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations years ahead of schedule, offering its customers in the entertainment industry cleaner and more efficient transportation.

The studio has invested in new clean diesel and gasoline trucks – a replacement of over one-third of its fleet – to reduce exhaust emissions and improve fuel economy.  In addition to investing in new vehicles, the Studio has installed clean diesel filters on its fleet of generator and camera trucks that reduce local air pollutant emissions by more than 85 percent.

“The studio is always looking at ways to offer cleaner, greener and more cost-effective production options to our clients in the industry,” Paul Casella, vice president, logistics at Sony Pictures said. “These upgrades to our transportation fleet will help us continue to reduce exhaust emissions in everyday operations, which makes a significant difference to air quality in the region.”

In order to meet federally imposed clean air standards and to reduce the adverse health effects from truck pollution, CARB approved truck and bus regulation to significantly reduce particulate matter and emissions from existing diesel vehicles operating in California. The regulation has a final deadline of 2023.

Sony Pictures Studios also replaced its passenger vans as part of this upgrade and now uses hybrid vehicles in its courier fleet, both of which will help to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases from the studios transportation fleet.

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.
