Picture Mill’s Bryan Thombs

Maya artist Bryan Thombs is walking the floor for his day job at Picture Mill. Specifically he’s looking for stereo 3D technology (he’s come to the right place). Hollywood-based Picture Mill is moving into stereo 3D title sequences, prologues and epilogues, and trailers to expand on their existing work in the same vein in 2D for clients including Paramount, Disney, Universal, Spyglass, Red Wagon, Nickelodeon and the BBC.

Bryan also made the titles for the Reel Impressions showcases that have been running all week in the Central Hall Content Theater. These showcases feature the Cinematography, Graphics, and Visual Effects work from millimeter‘s Reel-Exchange members and NAB attendees.

Phantom Workflow

While we’ve handed the buzzword crown this year to “3D,” let’s not forget about old friend “workflow.” Solutions and improvements abounded this year at NAB, and the Vision Research people are no exception. They are addressing the issue as it relates to their popular high-speed digital camera technology.

The guys at Vision Research showed me their new 10gigabit Ethernet Phantom CineStation—a docking station for its hot swappable CineMag memory magazines designed to speed up the transfer of data from the magazine to the people who need it—both the transfer and the download of the data. When you consider, according to Vision Research, that the Phantom HD system gobbles up about four megabytes of memory for each frame shot, just a few seconds of material can suck up internal camera memory quickly. more

Getting more from your GPU, NVIDIA style

NVIDIA Digital Video Pipeline at NAB 2009What’s graphics card vendor NVIDIA doing at NAB? Lots, as I learned in a fast paced 30 minute visit this afternoon.

I started with a look at the GeForce 3D vision, which via stereoscopic glasses gives gamers a 3D experience on hundreds of computer games. At NAB, NVIDIA previewed compatibility with content creation programs like Autodesk Maya, so designers can actually preview in 3D right from the program. The only downside is that you need an LCD panel that runs at 120 Hz, essentially 60 Hz for each eye. The largest current single LCD with this capability is only 22�, so NVIDIA showed an array of four 22� LCD panels using their Quadro Plex 2200 D2 visualization system. more


The editors of Digital Content Producer and millimeter post live from the NAB Show as the news happens. Check back several times a day for the latest industry news, reports from press conferences, and product introductions.
