Speaker: Dr. Johannes Steurer, Arri, Germany
Many film productions and live events require a high degree of modifications and extensions by means of computer graphics. These so called visual effects need to be integrated seamlessly with the live action images in photorealistic appearance. 3D laser scanning is becoming an interesting way of capturing the 3D shape of a the scene as well as the positions of cameras and microphones for sophisticated visual effects.
Johannes Steurer is Principal Engineer in the R&D department of Arnold & Richter Cine Technik. Currently his main task is to evaluate existing technologies for 3D acquisition in the field of motion picture applications and to lead the research on new 3D technologies at Arri, comprising stereo-3D, 3D laser scanning, and other new technologies for depth sensing.
He is recipient of several awards including two Cinec Awards and one Scientific and Engineering Award of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2002.
We welcome Dr. Steurer at our 3D-Documentation Conference and invite you to join us:
When: 17–18 May 2011
