The Future of Filmmaking with Oculus Rift

The Future of Filmmaking with Oculus Rift | Arts Independent | Scoop.it

As the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset grows in popularity ahead of its late 2014/early 2015 consumer release, it’s already doing some pretty amazing things in beta. Though it’s been designed primarily for 3D gaming VR, it can also do things like controlling aerial camera drones. Clearly in the near future there are going to be some passive film viewing applications for the Oculus

“What’s exciting about it, I feel like we’re in 1927 when sound was first being introduced,” The Mission’s director Matthew Gratzner told Gizmodo, “but what you have to realize is that you don’t really have the ability to do coverage. In other words, you’re looking 360 degrees so every time you’re shooting something you have to be aware of someone or something you could see in the background [that shouldn't be there]. There is no ‘behind the camera’.”

Introducing 8K: The Final Frontier?

Introducing 8K: The Final Frontier? | Arts Independent | Scoop.it

Keeping apace with camera technology is like running a race where the finish line keeps on moving. Just as the next generation of games consoles go on sale boasting the ability to display 4K images (although for the moment only those with the salary of a pro-footballer can afford screens able to make use of all those pixels) Japanese broadcaster NHK has started to film and broadcast events in 8K. NHK are so excited about the technology that they have commissioned filmmakers to make short films showcasing 8K, which were screened at the recent Tokyo International Film Festival.

YouTube makes it easier for playlist creators to tell a story with new intro and outro feature

YouTube makes it easier for playlist creators to tell a story with new intro and outro feature | Arts Independent | Scoop.it

Excerped from article:

"YouTube decided to help out the community a bit by releasing a new intro and outro feature that lets you insert professional clips in between your videos easily.

 

YouTube Engineer Eric Lundberg said:

"You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long."

 

These particular features allow video creators to tell a full story in a series of videos. Even if you’re not making your own videos, creating a playlist is a way of providing a valuable service to the community."

Hearing then seeing. The next entertainment 'sense' maybe touch!? Disney Augmented Reality

Instead, Disney researchers employ a newly discovered physical phenomenon called reverse electrovibration to create the illusion of changing textures as the user's fingers sweep across a surface. A weak electrical signal, which can be applied imperceptibly anywhere on the user's body, creates an oscillating electrical field around the user's fingers that is responsible for the tactile feedback.

The technology, called REVEL, could be used to create "please touch" museum displays, add haptic feedback to games, apply texture to projected images on surfaces of any size and shape, provide customized directions on walls for people with visual disabilities and enhance other applications of augmented reality.

"Augmented reality to date has focused primarily on visual and auditory feedback, but less on the sense of touch," said Olivier Bau, a postdoc at Disney Research, Pittsburgh. "Sight and sound are important, but we believe the addition of touch can create a really unique and magical experience."

With Super Hi-Vision, the TV landscape will look very different ten years from now

With Super Hi-Vision, the TV landscape will look very different ten years from now | Arts Independent | Scoop.it

No sooner are we getting to grips with 3D and HD, and we’re already being told about the “next big thing” in televisual technology. But keep your hat on, this next one is some years away yet.

 

Super Hi-Vision (or Ultra High Definition) has been getting a fair bit of coverage of late, largely due to the BBC’s partnership with Japanese broadcaster NHK for the 2012 Olympics.

 

The technology underlying Super Hi-Vision has been developed in large by NHK’s Science and Technology Research laboratories, which the BBC borrowed to showcase its potential as a broadcasting medium. While the BBC did a tentative test with the technology back in 2010, it was all really gearing up to the Olympics.

 

Super Hi-Vision combines images 16 times the resolution of High Definition television, with a 22.2 multichannel surround sound. As you’d maybe imagine, when viewed on a purpose-built big screen, the effect is phenomenal.
