Steele Studios, a postproduction company and creator of visual imagery for films, commercials, television broadcast, music videos and online media, has named Thom Burkhart as the company’s new senior producer. Most recently, Burkhart had been head of digital postproduction for Rhythm & Hues for 14 years.

“I’m thrilled to be at Steele Studios,” Burkhart said. “I’m most excited about spreading the word how they have streamlined the entire post pipeline using their Quantel Pablos. Jerry Steele has figured out how to use the Pablo to its fullest potential. And the potential is huge. This means saving clients’ substantial time and money on post, and also opening up more opportunities to take creativity to its fullest capability. When I saw what Steele Studios was up to, I was blown away and I wanted to be a part of it.”

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.
