In the Automatic Stereo Production collaborative research project – which is subsidized by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy – several project partners are developing a smart embedded 3D stereo camera assistance system for unattended broadcast and POV applications. It is based on a mirrorless side-by-side camera system with integration of newly developed components. The aim is reducing the cost of future 3D stereo recording without any loss of quality.

Spatial-AV - The Future of Movie Production

The goal of this project is to automate 3D production workflows, making it easy to repeatedly use and work with data and information in a flexible manner after it has been captured. The goal is to develop an intelligent, modular, multi-sensory recording and production system for immersive audiovisual media.

This helps minimize the cost pressures associated with elaborate productions. Intelligent and networked cameras, camera and microphone arrays and additional sensors for position, direction of movement or depth deliver information that enables the system to automatically correct various recording parameters. Other post-production supplementary data make a wide range of production and playback scenarios feasible. Visualization data and audio data optimized for 2D, 3D, free viewpoint or rumdum videos can be derived from the recording data. The recording and production systems can be used for conventional movie and television playback, as well as for 3D screens, autostereoscopic displays or panorama and dome cinema.

Participating Fraunhofer institutes include IIS, HHI, IDMT and FOKUS.

EDCINE

Within the EU-Project EDCINE (Enhanced Digital Cinema) the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is working with European partners to develop and test a concept for digital film archiving that addresses both long-term archiving of digital data and the access to already archived digital material.
