Matthews’ New Portable Flags & Floppies


Matthews.logo2Offering the benefits for which Matthews Studio Equipment is known, the new 40”x40” line of Flags and Floppies meets the need for gear that’s portable enough to travel and compact enough to work in nooks and crannies of a tight location. The 40”x40” dimension also fits standard shipping limits.

Available individually, the line consists of: 40” x40” Flags, top or bottom hinge Floppies (expand to 40”x80”), top hinge Matthbounce Floppy (black back, inside reflective white), Artificial Silk and the 40”x40” Flag Bag. For those who prefer a kit, the 40”x40” Kit includes: 1 Flag/Cutter, one Top Hinge Floppy, one Artificial Silk, and the Zippered Flag Bag.

Like the larger versions, the new frames are built with the same 3/8” stainless steel tubing that’s welded to ensure a long life period. The Flags, Floppies and Silks are sewn in Matthew’s Southern California headquarters.

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.
