Technicolor’s Certifi3D quality analysis software service helps optimize the 3D viewing experience by ensuring viewer comfort on all media.
Improperly produced 3D material can cause headaches, nausea, visual fatigue and other symptoms; even 3D that presents well in a theatre may cause discomfort at home. There are no industry standards for quality. And even if viewing quality standards did exist, not all filmmakers, producers and broadcasters are equipped to perform 3D Quality Control.
Certifi3D evaluates 3D content against 15 objective criteria for stereographic reproduction, identifying common errors that result in suboptimal 3D content and may cause viewer discomfort. Dailies can be quality-checked on set; masters can be quality-checked for theatrical distribution; acquired content can be quality-checked to ensure optimum home viewing.
By establishing objective, measurable quality control criteria, Certifi3D eliminates operator bias and facilitates constructive, fact-based discussions with content producers. The result: the right level of comfort for every viewer regardless of platform.
Thanks to a production streamlined version of Certifi3D, filmmakers can rest assured that single – or multiple –camera feeds are “Depth Legal” in real time.
Certifi3D Live can also be used to quickly control the depth budget of any 3D assets at each post-production workflow stage or prior to broadcast distribution.
