Blackmagic Design: Chimney Group Expansion


bmd.logoBlackmagic Design has announced that Chimney Group, one of Europe’s largest post production facilities, has continued to invest in Davinci Resolve Studio as part of its rapid expansion into regions including the US, South East Asia, and Australia. The Chimney Group spans more than 400 employees across 14 offices in nine different countries, including cities such as Los Angeles, Singapore, Berlin and Sydney.


The Group has now standardized its entire finishing workflow around non-linear editor and color correction platform. Easy access to top talent for new studio openings, such as Chimney’s latest 6,000 square foot office in New York, was another reason for the shift. With eight suites for editing and grading alongside a visual effects pen, the new studio is the modern platform for servicing a client roster that boasts Unilever, ESPN and Microsoft. The Chimney Group are strong proponents of what Blackmagic Design is doing to make creative tools such as DaVinci Resolve more accessible.

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.
