SGO, working in close collaboration with Dolby, plans to make the Dolby Vision workflow capabilities available in Mistika in version 8.2, which was previewed at NAB and is due for release shortly after IBC 2014.

Dolby Vision helps content creators and television manufacturers deliver true-to-life brightness, colors and contrast by augmenting the fidelity of Ultra HD (UHD) and HD video signals for over-the-top (OTT) online streaming, broadcast and gaming applications.

“Creative teams using SGO’s Mistika can embrace the full gamut of colors, peak brightness and local contrast available with Dolby Vision,” said Roland Vlaicu, senior director, broadcast imaging, Dolby Laboratories. “Films and TV shows will look more like the real world, and viewers will notice details that might have previously gone unseen.”

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.
