Fri 2 Dec | 10am – 1pm | £4 (£3) | Exeter Phoenix
Exeter University, Cineon Productions and Exeter Phoenix invite forward thinking businesses to an introduction to immersive video technologies and discussion on its applications within industry.
Do you wonder how new technologies and techniques are going to alter the way in which we view and even interact with video? Cineon Productions does, and those behind this long time sponsor of Two Short Nights have been excited by the concept of immersive video ever since putting on a Virtuality headset back in 1994 and having a blurry pterodactyl experience. But the technology has been a long time coming and is still considered to be in its infancy.
Cineon Productions in collaboration with the University of Exeter will be putting on a joint workshop as part of Two Short Nights that will give attendees the opportunity to try out some more up-to-date virtual reality and 360 video as well as gaining an introduction to the filming techniques involved. There will also be a lecture by the Physiologists from the University introducing the way in which these techniques have been used in their research and its applications to industry. This will include an introduction to eye-tracking technology. Eye-tracking is powerful tool for capturing human response and there will be a deconstruction of a favourite movie scene with some audience participation that will prove a unique insight for filmmakers and actors alike.
Ticket includes entry to both the talk in Studio 74 (10am – 11.30am) and VR workshop in Digital Workshop (11.30am – 1pm).
