Company 3 Reaches the Czech Republic Via RUR


Company 3 announced it will now offer feature film and commercial productions in the Czech Republic access to its entire roster of colorists and color technology through RUR – a post production company in Prague. Like the 25 other Company 3 “virtual outposts” throughout the world, this one will allow commercial and feature film clients working in the region the ability to collaborate in real time with any of the colorists based at Company 3’s Santa Monica, New York, Atlanta or London facilities.

“We’re delighted to be offering this service in the Czech Republic,” said Thatcher Peterson, Company 3’s director of commercial and interactive services. “Production in the region is very healthy. This ‘virtual outpost’ allows us to bring the talents of our colorists to Prague, while widening our own client base.”

The outposts are set up to ensure calibration of displays so that everyone involved sees the exact same image, as well as image refinements, in real time as though they were all in the same theater.

“Prague and the entire Czech Republic is seeing a very healthy amount of world-class production today and RUR is delighted to be able to expand our post offerings to include all that Company 3 has to offer,” said Jan Vseticek, managing director at RUR.

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.
