|At the Thursday, May 18 meeting...
SMPTE New England VR/AR Boot Camp
As part of the ISG/Boston 27th Annual Pro Video and Lighting Show
This is a free event!!!
10:00 a.m. - Introduction and Opening
10:30 a.m. - Virtual Tools for Pipeline
Development - Motion Capture and 3D Technologies Modern Film
Special effects, VR and live action film
tools have evolved over the years to be increasingly interdependent.
Technologies once only available to the highest budget blockbuster are now used, often invisibly, in nearly every medium. Jason Edmonds, Motion Capture Supervisor at Hoylu and WuxiaiO will be demonstrating and discussing practical applications throughout various
12:00 p.m. - Understanding work flow in 360 Video Content Creation.
Michael Kintner, CEO of 360RIZE, formerly 360Hero, will cover the creative in 360 video content development from hardware to software. Review the work flow of do’s and don’t in 360 production and discuss a multiple projects from Mount Everest to Fishing in New Zealand. We’ll cover the 360 video production tools and why 360 resolution is so important in creating content. 360 technology is changing rapidly and we’ll cover our 360 video gear, its work flow with resolutions as high as 16,000 by 8,000 pixels.

1:00 p.m. - All the New Stuff- 4K/UHD,
HDR, IP, PTP and VR 360- How make it work and look great
This tutorial presented by Karl Kuhn, SMPTE
Fellow and Sr. Video Applications Engineer at Tektronix, will discuss the new
methodologies needed from production to delivery of content in End to End
architectures. As we move toward 4K/UHD becoming business as usual, we will
need to adopt new approaches for Monitoring, Trending and Testing.
High Dynamic Range is being considered as the best bang for the bit because regardless of screen size it enhances the viewing
experience – only if it is done right.
Hybrid SDI/IP facilities bring new challenges for maintaining network stability and packet integrity that are paramount to
successful deployments and differ from traditional IT QoS concerns. The move to IP allows for multiplexing various signals over a shared physical layer.
Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is beginning to replace Gen Lock for system timing. PTP is implemented to reduce and eventually
eliminate the need for a dedicated system timing network. System stability and
latency is the challenge in a bidirectional timing network.
VR utilizing 360 cameras require unique
approaches to production and post. This paper will share a few lessons learned. Tektronix
2:30 p.m. - Fundamental concepts and
technologies behind augmented and mixed reality:
There is a lot more to AR than PokemonGo. In this interactive session, hoverlay’s
Nicolas Robbe and Milan Kovacev
will go over the fundamental concepts and technologies behind augmented and
mixed reality, present some practical examples and demos, and share their
predictions on potential deployments, including TV programming, advertising,
and broadcasting use cases. After attending the session, you will be able to
know the core technical underpinnings of augmented/mixed reality, who the main
industry players are, and how to select possible introductory use cases in your
4:00 p.m.- Bringing Holograms to Print
What if you could make hologram-like prints
using a standard printer, media and ink? At Lumii we’re working to make this dream into a reality and deliver a new 3D medium
that’s accessible to all.
Co-founders Daniel Leithinger and Matt Hirsch will discuss their thoughts about how this new light field media might re-shape the worlds of art, architecture, media, and branding.
5:30 p.m. - Dinner Break - See Demos
