At this year’s NAB trade show and conference, Thales Angenieux and Binocle are together previewing a ground-breaking imaging technique that will allow full 3D stereoscopic shooting without objectionable side effects. The solution combines perfectly paired optics with full motion control, along with advanced algorithms designed to alleviate viewing stress.
“The development of this solution by Binocle and Angenieux offers significant value and enrichment to the film and television production community,” said Chris Beauparlant, VP, U.S. Sales and Marketing, Thales Angenieux. “By eliminating adverse issues such as visual stress that are associated with 3D viewing, the potential for a new cinematographic art, and the emergence of a new vein of production capabilities is greatly increased.”
Since its inception, full acceptance of 3D stereoscopic imaging has been hindered by the incompatibility of the human eye to process dual images without visual aids. Engineers at Binocle, France’s innovative leader in stereoscopic film shooting and post production technology, have overcome the challenges by developing a technique which allows camera motion to be accurately controlled with the use of computers and digital image correction.
Thales Angenieux has partnered with Binocle on these developments and the Company’s superior quality optics have been instrumental in Binocle’s recent developments and successes. On display at the Thales Angenieux booth are Binocle motion control rigs, stereo visualization displays and correction software, all utilizing Thales Angenieux lenses.
