Global production house NHNZ and Korea’s Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) are collaborating to develop a cost-effective software that converts 2D television programmes into 3D. NHNZ is providing information about broadcast quality needs and technology, and is contributing its Life Force factual series as a test case for the project.
“The research team has already shown us initial tests, which look very promising indeed; the nucleus of the software is already there. At this workshop, we’ll move the software a little further forward and, using Life Force and its huge diversity of HD imagery – from super slomo to macro imagery – as our test case, we’ll really put the technology through its paces,” said NHNZ General Manager John Crawford.
