Digital Vision Unveils Bifrost Archive Bridge


Digital Vision unveiled its new Bifrost Archive Bridge at an offsite whisper suite during NAB. The system automates and streamlines the process of restoring and preserving assets and creating high quality digital media.

“Protecting and preserving assets can be an incredibly expensive and time-consuming process, in the face of which many are overwhelmed and defer the undertaking,” said Kelvin Bolah, president, Digital Vision. “Bifrost is a truly revolutionary process because it combines technical efficiencies, relatively low investment and unbelievable speed.”

The Bifrost Archive Bridge is suitable for archives of any size, comprising various workflow components that can be utilized either as a stand-alone system or integrated into existing infrastructures depending on individual requirements.

Bifrost includes an extensive web-based logging and reporting infrastructure developed by Digital Vision, which allows progress to be remotely monitored and analyzed. Features include logging and cataloging, film scanning, audio synchronization, automated restoration compatible with Thor hardware acceleration, and media management and delivery.

“Taking the first steps to protect valuable assets can be a daunting prospect. Bifrost Archive Bridge takes away that fear,” said Rob Wall, market manager, workflows and media managements, Digital Vision.

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.
