STEREOLABS is the award winner of the 2011 National Innovation Competition in France. The annual competition, organized by the French Ministry of Research, rewards companies for conducting breakthrough research in their respective field.
This year, STEREOLABS received the prize for the development of world class 3D image processing technologies. The technology has been integrated within PURE, the company’s flagship product for broadcast and digital cinema production. Using live analysis and processing, it enables operators to detect 3D rig misalignments, cameras mismatch and exceeding depth. Errors can be corrected automatically through remote rig control or by digital correction.
“These technologies meet scientific and industrial needs” said Valerie Pecresse, France’s Minister of Research. “They are at the heart of the challenges that will face our citizens in the future.”
STEREOLABS has been able to stand out in the 3D industry by bringing continuous improvement and major additions to its PURE Stereo Image Processor thanks to its close cooperation with international partners and laboratories.
“We are honored to receive this award. It acknowledges the great work done by our engineers” said Edwin Azzam, CEO of STEREOLABS. “Innovation is at the heart of our development strategy. In the coming period, we will continue to increase our research and development efforts in order to regularly offer new features and updates to our users.”
The National innovation Competition Award Ceremony took place on 28th June at the Ministry of Research and Higher Education, in Paris.
