SMPTE+ To Discuss Migrating Media & Entertainment into the Cloud


unnamed (1)

Where does the cloud migration stand now? What happens if the internet dies? When will the next round of technical challenges be solved? And will there be trivia? On 31 August experts from across the industry will answer these and other pressing questions about the future of media in the cloud. (And yes, there will be breaks for pub-style trivia and networking.)

The SMPTE+ event “Migrating Media & Entertainment Into the Cloud: A Real-World Perspective” will feature a half-day of chats and panel discussions focused on emerging questions, concerns, and opportunities afforded by the industry’s shift to cloud-based technologies, workflows, strategy, and business models.

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.
