Dashwood Cinema Schedules Stereo3D CAT Premiere Events


Dashwood Cinema Solutions will launch the commercial version of its stereoscopic 3D production technology – Stereo 3D CAT – at three special events held in New York (Oct. 14), Los Angeles (Nov. 2-3) and Toronto (Nov. 10). Stereo3D CAT is a monitoring and analysis system that helps professional stereographers quickly solve spatial disparities that commonly disrupt 3D shoots.

Co-sponsoring the cross-country events is stereo production group, 21st Century 3D. “With the recent proliferation of stereoscopic 3D live action production, we have seen many newcomers charging into the field,” said Jason Goodman, CEO, 21st Century 3D. “Stereo3D CAT gives experts and novices alike the tools they require to empirically analyze their stereoscopic 3D images and eliminate guesswork in aligning 3D beam splitter rigs like the 21st Century 3D BX3.5. Stereo3D CAT demystifies many of the greatest challenges of shooting 3D, while simultaneously commoditizing the formerly expensive process of digital stereoscopic image analysis and reporting.”

The special launch events give industry professionals an opportunity to examine the new stereoscopic technology close up and ask questions about various workflow scenarios with lead Stereo3D CAT product designer, Tim Dashwood and stereo production expert Jason Goodman.

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.
