2020 3D Media Project

Technicolor R&I completes 4-year funding project

The 2020 3D Media project, funded by the European Commission, will showcase its main results at Fraunhofer HHI’s TimeLab in Berlin on February 13-14, 2012, in conjunction with the Berlinale 2012 Film Festival.

During the open showcase event, the project’s experimental production short film, directed by Eric Joris, will be premiered. The film combines cutting-edge stereoscopic and immersive technologies developed in the project.

The Technicolor Research & Innovation team from Hannover, Germany contributed to the development of the capture demonstrators with joint efforts by Fraunhofer-HHI and Grass Valley. 

The three technologies include:

  • A 3D “Trifocal” camera and recording system for HD depth map generation including a live preview function
  • A versatile 10G real-time capture, Ethernet-based network
  • A “FlashPak II” field recorder which can record up to seven cameras in one time
