Big Pic Media Delivers 4K HDR Tech to Evolutions

unnamed

Big Pic Media announces the delivery of latest generation 4K HDR monitoring, display calibration and mastering systems to Evolutions, one of Britain’s largest independent post-production companies. The project forms part of ongoing investment in new resources. It includes four Sony BVM-HX310 4K HDR master monitors, an MTI Film Cortex Enterprise mastering and validation system and a Portrait Display Calman Ultimate display calibration bundle.

“Demand for television content is greater than it has ever been but the technology base continues to develop rapidly,” comments Evolutions Operations Director Owen Tyler. “TV content producers have always mastered in the highest possible standards they can afford to ensure their creations are future proof. 4K HDR is currently optimal as it allows easy downconversion into HD-SDR or HD-HDR as well as offering stunning quality when delivered native. We anticipate strong growth in SVoD throughout the decade and are gearing to meet that demand by offering post-production facilities in whatever resolutions and file formats our customers request. Big Pic Media has been very supportive throughout this phase of our expansion, lending monitors and additional resources for us to test within our workflow. Adam Welsh and his colleagues have an evident strong understanding of the media business from both an operational and technical viewpoint which made the decision process faster and easier.”

“The system we have supplied to Evolutions provides all the tools required for no-compromise 4K HDR reference monitoring,” says Big Pic Media MD Adam Welsh. “Sony’s BVM-HX310 is the de-facto standard for high-end colour grading suites and all colour critical monitoring. MTI Film’s Cortex Enterprise Edition has also become very much an industry preferred system, in this case for content mastering and validation. It offers a wide selection of facilities including IMF packaging with Dolby Vision support, Digital Cinema Package creation tools, dead pixel detection and correction as well as video measurement tools and high quality re-scaling, all with enhanced edit capabilities.”

Calman’s Ultimate allows operators to configure their display calibration routine to their exact requirements. It was delivered as a complete set with a C6 HDR2000 colorimeter, VideoForge PRO pattern generator and connecting cables.

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.
