The Hollywood Post Alliance Sales Career Resource Group (SCRG) will present “High Noon: Shoot Out at the Editorial Corral” – an in-depth look at the changing landscape of editorial tools. High Noon is set for May 17 at the Beverly Garland Holiday Inn in North Hollywood, and will be moderated by Herb Dow, A.C.E.  The panel discussion will take a studied look at today’s editing systems and how they stack up to the demands of creatives, including the limits and the benefits of the technology.

A respected group of editors, technology specialists and executives join Dow on the panel, including: Brandon Balin, editor; Scott Carrey, digital media and technology specialist; Billy Fox, A.C.E.; and representatives from Adobe and Avid. Additional speakers to be announced.

The HPA SCRG luncheons are engaging educational events that create community among sales, marketing and business development professionals, provide a forum for professional support and deepen the value of the HPA.

Registration for the event is $60 for HPA members and $80 for non-members, and includes a buffet lunch. Early registration is encouraged as SCRG luncheon events often sell out and higher fees will apply for onsite registrations.

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.
