SIGGRAPH 2009 Panel Explores Eye-Definition Computing and the Future of Digital Actors

CHICAGO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 30, 2009 Enter the era of “Eye-Def” Computing and digital filmmaking at SIGGRAPH 2009 when director Peter Berg (“The Kingdom”, “Hancock”, and the upcoming remake of “Dune”), software creator and OTOY CEO Jules Urbach, and AMD’s top computer and graphics processors executive Rick Bergman discuss some of the ground-breaking advances in hardware and software that enables sophisticated real-time rendering techniques and new delivery models, and forthcoming client and server hardware that has the potential to put the equivalent of a Hollywood render farm in a home set-top box.

“As new technologies approach unperceivable differences between CG characters and real actors, breakthroughs in processing power and software are creating a powerful new medium: Eye-Definition Computing,” says Carlye Archibeque, SIGGRAPH 2009 Computer Animation Festival Executive Producer “As this medium moves into real-time rendering capabilities, new possibilities are born in digital filmmaking, video game development, and interactive animation.”

Join the panelists as they contemplate the impact and implications of:

  • Films with entirely CG created characters
  • Real-time rendering for pre-visualization
  • Game characters as detailed as CG film characters
  • Digital immortality for actors through advanced new image and data capture techniques
  • New possibilities in blending interactivity with the home movie viewing experience
