ASG to Explore Real-Time 4K Production at Annual Workshop


Emeryville, Calif.-based systems integrator Advanced Systems Group, (ASG) will explore the expanding use of 4K for professional video applications at its annual workshop, “Initiatives in 4K,” on Dec. 3, at the New People Cinema at the New People building in San Francisco. Free presentations begin at 10 a.m., and the workshop includes lunch sponsored by Quantum.

“Interest in 4K has been growing for years in our industry,” said Dave Van Hoy, ASG president, “and now it’s no longer limited to digital cinema and episodic television. Real-time 4K production is gaining momentum for live events, high-end video conferencing applications, and more. With 4K branching out, it is more important than ever for video professionals to learn about the challenges of 4K file-based workflows.”

While 4K adoption is growing, many of the same questions and concerns regarding equipment and file management remain. Initiatives in 4K will feature five presentations discussing a number of 4K topics, including acquisition, post production, display, delivery and real-time 4K live event production.

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.
