James Cameron to headline IBC

[TVB Europe]
Director James Cameron and his business partner Vince Pace will deliver a conference session at IBC evangelising 3DTV production methods just as they did at NAB earlier this year.
The CAMERON-PACE Group, which launched at NAB targeting the 3DTV market is looking to secure a base and partnerships in Europe. Cameron will also use the occasion to pitch his belief in high frame rate capture and projection for 3D movies.  …
3D Live at the Big Screen considers what it takes to deliver good live 3D sport, music or theatre including depth budget management and how to avoid dwarfism in the company of 3ality Technica CEO Steve Schklair.
The debate moves on to the challenges that multiple screens add to the 3D production process. If your programme is going to be seen on everything from a tablet to an Imax screen, what fine tuning do you need for each resolution, and how practical is this work? …

Panasonic Develops Compact, Twin-Lens 3D Digital Camera with 3D HD Video Capability

[Press Release]

Panasonic today announced the development of a twin-lens 3D digital camera, complete with 3D HD video capability. The new LUMIX 3D prototype will be on display at IFA 2011, one of the world’s largest electronics shows, from September 2-7, 2011, in Berlin, Germany.  IFA conference attendees can visit the Panasonic booth at Messe Berlin, Hall 5.2

The new 3D digital camera will also shoot 2D photos and HD video. With its 3D still and video capabilities, the compact camera will allow users to take 3D photos and 3D HD videos, while further expanding the world of consumer 3D entertainment.

The LUMIX 3D camera’s compact size was achieved by employing two recently-developed 4x zoom lenses with thin, folded optics, which allow users to capture crisp and clear photo and video footage even from afar. The optical zoom system enables highly-versatile 3D shooting from wide angle to telephoto while the Optical Image Stabilization works during both 2D and 3D shooting to produce high-quality photos and videos with minimal blurring. The unique, twin-lens design further helps in providing stunning, high-resolution 2D photos while shooting 2D videos instantaneously. Using the side-by-side method, the camera can also capture 3D HD videos in AVCHD format.

The versatility of the 3D capture technology allows users to quickly go from shooting photos and videos to viewing them. Working synergistically with other Panasonic products, the new camera allows photos and videos to be easily viewed on a VIERA 3D TV with the simple insertion of the SD memory card into the TV’s SD card image viewer slot or by connecting the camera to the TV with an HDMI cable.
