Volt Studios Transmits Nice Shoes to Minneapolis


LR-VoltNice Shoes announced that it has expanded its Remote Color Network through a partnership with Minneapolis-based Volt Studios.

The company’s new executive producer for color and finishing Ed Koenig has enjoyed a long relationship with Volt partners Steve Medin and Charlie Lach, and was excited to connect them with the colorists at Nice Shoes.

“I’m thrilled to be partnered up with the team at Volt again,” said Koenig. “They have a great reputation in Minneapolis and I think we represent each other very well.”

“We have long been admirers of Chris Ryan and the entire roster of talented artists at Nice Shoes and are excited by the opportunity to offer these talents to our Minneapolis clients,” said Lach, executive producer/partner at Volt Studios.

The two studios have already commenced work on projects for agencies Martin Williams and Fallon.

Nice Shoes Remote Color offers real-time remote collaboration, with a secure HD feed and a display calibrated by the studio’s engineers, so the remote monitor matches exactly with the colorist monitors. Since 2010, Nice Shoes has installed the proprietary technology at locations in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami and New Orleans, carefully selecting companies with comparable cultures and levels of customer service in order to replicate what clients have come to expect when working in New York.

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.
