Top global post and VFX facility invests in three stereo 3D systems from FilmLight
MPC, the leading global post-production and visual effects facility, has become the first company worldwide to invest in FilmLight’s new Truelight 3D player. Launched at this year’s IBC, the Truelight 3D player enables production teams – on set, near set or in post – to see exactly how their stereoscopic 3D shots will look when projected for the cinema audience.
MPC has purchased three systems: two systems have already been installed in its Wardour Street headquarters (London) for use on a current stereo 3D project.
“We needed a 2K stereo player with a comprehensive toolset that integrated into our Linux stereo pipeline,” said David Spilsbury, Head of Engineering at MPC. “We worked with FilmLight’s R&D team to upgrade our existing Truelight Player and, having tested the workflows, we’ve now purchased a further two systems. The player includes tools such as stereo fix which will allow our operators to make adjustments and get important feedback during client VFX shot review sessions.”
“As more 3D projects go into production there’s a growing need for a cost-effective review and approve station for 3D digital rushes,” said Mark Burton, Head of Marketing at FilmLight. “Our new Truelight 3D Player fulfills that need. We’re delighted that MPC, such a well-respected player in the post-production industry, has seen the tangible benefits the system can offer its clients.”
The Truelight 3D Player will be on show on the FilmLight stand at IBC – hall 7, booth F31.
