HIPA 2015: photo through visual performances.

Dubai continues to direct its energy into the development and the Dubai 2015 Strategy is a roadmap that charts this sustained effort.

With this in mind H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum established the prestigious ‘Hamdan International Photography Award’. This demonstrates the commitment of Dubai to encouraging and supporting art, culture and innovation. The Award appeals to all talented photographers across the globe, and also nurtures national talent, which will in turn attract international art and cultural attention. The Award highlights how Dubai is fast developing into one of the most artistically conscious and established cities in the world.

These two visual performances demonstrate the creative approach to the deeply artistic process of taking photos. It’s a great vision of mastery demonstrated with the help of video master’s skills. Enjoy!

Safe white light disinfects hospitals around the clock.

Vital Vio disinfectant lighting reduces harmful micro-organisms in bacteria-sensitive environments such as hospitals and kitchens.

In certain workplaces, especially hospitals and restaurant kitchens, regular levels of bacteria are unsafe. In the past, UV lighting and chemicals have been used to disinfect fragile areas, but both of these options are unsafe for continuous use. Offering a new solution, Vital Vio is a disinfectant lighting which can reduce harmful micro-organisms by up to 99.9 percent, using harmless white light from specialized overhead light fixtures.

Vital Vio’s disinfectant lighting can be installed in thirty minutes anywhere there is a light fixture. Once in place, the system can remain on around-the-clock, providing continuous protection from bacteria such as MRSA, E.Coli and Salmonella for patients and staff. The system uses precision control of LEDs, and integrates the invisible cleansing into white light. Vital Vio can even work with customers to create modified protection — adjusting the color temperature to best suit their environment. Vital Vio offers 90 percent disinfection after just one and a half hours rising to 99.9 percent after 16 hours.

While the primary applications for Vital Vio are healthcare and catering environments, the company also suggest implementing it in hotels, gyms and public restrooms — anywhere that bacteria can easily thrive and spread. Where else could the technology be implemented?

Perfume Live from "SXSW 2015"

LET’S GET RIGHT down to it: This SXSW performance by Japanese pop trio Perfume is the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a long time. It’s lightyears beyond straightforward projection mapping. It’s lightyears beyond any sort of audiovisual spectacle I can think of, really. This thing is an ecstatic vision beamed back from a future in which the physical and digital have converged to the point of being utterly indistinguishable. It’s a fever dream of atoms and pixels and photons. It’s unbelievable. I’ve watched it about a hundred times and I still have no idea what’s going on.

Here’s what I do know. Mikiko, of the dance group Elevenplay, was responsible for the the stage show, visuals, and and choreography. The performance was produced by Kaoru Sugano, the famed creative director of the Japanese ad company Dentsu. The technical bits were overseen by Daito Manabe of the bleeding edge design crew Rhizomatiks. The whole thing demanded a small army of designers, engineers, and artists. The clip above was filmed in real time. None of it was done in post-production.

A peek behind the scenes.Click to Open Overlay Gallery A peek behind the scenes. Courtesy Daito Manabe The video involves several “tricks,” as Manabe puts it. The illusion began with preproduction, including an elaborate 3-D scan of the Austin venue and another of Perfume running through their performance. The real magic, however, happened on the fly. During the performance, a dynamic projection mapping system cast visuals onto the semi-translucent screens in front of the singers; motion capture allowed the position of the projections to be calibrated automatically moment by moment. The cameras filming the performance were also watched by a motion capture system, each outfitted with a marker allowing the system to track the camera’s position and orientation in space. This, Manabe says, was key for morphing seamlessly between perspectives, an effect conjured by Rhizomatiks computer vision wizard Yuya Hanai. The final video moves seamlessly between the live footage and the 3D model captured ahead of time.

Do I understand precisely how all that results in what I’m seeing here? Not really! But I don’t understand exactly how the Chartes Cathedral was built either, and that doesn’t make it any less tremendous.

Solutions for trade events in North & Southwest England.

National tourism agency VisitBritain recently held two distinct trade events in North and Southwest England, both aimed at helping local businesses develop international tourism. The agency turned to event production supplier White Light to provide lighting and projection mapping for both events, using cutting edge technology to complement two unique historic venues in Plymouth and Yorkshire.

Ahead of its Southwest showcase, VisitBritain chose the historic Royal William Yard in Plymouth as the canvas for a lighting and projection display.  The event, held the next day at Bovey Castle, hosted over 100 suppliers from the region matching them with visiting international buyers. White Light was responsible for lighting and AV for the display.

Led by project manager, Phil Gladman, the team created an 18m projection element on the exterior of the Grade I listed building. To achieve the projection, they used an ArKaos Pro Stadium media server equipped with the latest release of ArKaos MediaMaster Pro software.

“The software is very intuitive,” said Gladman. “It’s always very quick and easy to set up ArKaos on-site and the system has the flexibility that we need for events like this.”

For lighting, White Light supplied a mix of Vari-lite VLX, Clay Paky Sharpy, and SGM G-Spot units to integrate the entire building with the projection visuals. The show was controlled by a Grand MA console.

VisitBritain took their next project to Northern England, selecting a Yorkshire venue – Castle Howard – to showcase the best of the region. The castle was illuminated in the lead up to VisitBritain’s international tourism seminar in York. White Light delivered unifying visuals and VisitBritain branding with a 30m projection element on the Castle.

Three-dimensional holographic displays could soon be possible thanks to a new type of pixel element developed by University of Cambridge Researchers. The research team demonstrated the element that delivers greater control over displays at the level of individual pixels which will open up a new host of possibilities for holograms. The results were recently published in the journal Physica Status Solidi.

Researchers explain that holograms are created when light bounces off a sheet of material with grooves placed in such a way that will project the image away from the surface to deliver the visual impression that an object is directly in front of them.

Development is currently limited by technology that can allow the control of all the properties of light at the level of individual pixels. 

Calum Williams, a PhD student at the University of Cambridge’s Department of Engineering, says: “In a typical liquid crystal on silicon display, the pixels’ electronics or backplane, provides little optical functionality other than reflecting light. This means that a large amount of surface area is being underutilised, which could be used to store information.” 

The new technique developed by Williams and his team uses plasmonics (the study of how light interacts with metals on a nanoscale) to deliver a greater level of control over holograms. 

Devices which use plasmonic optical antennas are usually passive and their optical properties cannot be switched post-fabrication. Through interaction with liquid crystals the researchers were able to actively switch which hologram is exited and therefore which output image is selected.

Neptune Duo - You'll Flip Over This.

Technology is all about big ideas, and this one from Simon Tian will probably need its own aircraft hangar. The creator of the Neptune Pine believes that it's time for us to ditch our smartphone, laptop and set-top-box in favor of the Neptune Hub. As we reported, the Neptune Hub is a wrist-worn computer that crams the guts of a smartphone into a chunky plastic bracelet. Instead of using the hardware as a phone, however, users are encouraged to bring along a dumb screen that connects to the Hub. But that's the beginning of Tian's idea, not the end.
You see, the Hub is designed as the single mobile computer you need in your life, replacing the brains of a phone, tablet, laptop and set-top box. Instead, the Neptune Suite is a group of anonymous-looking devices that look like those things, but are actually just secondary displays for the computer on your wrist.

For instance, if you want to make a call and read some emails, you connect the 5-inch Pocket Screen over WiGig to the hub. When you're done, and you want to browse the web, you simply swap put the "phone" down and pick up the 10-inch Tab Screen. Should you need to get some more serious work done, you can team the Neptune Keys (keyboard) with the Tab Screen to create an ersatz laptop. Finally, vegging out in front of Netflix can be achieved by switching over to the Dongle, a HDMI-dongle that slots in the back of your HDTV.
The benefit of all of this is that since all of the other devices don't need their own computing hardware, the whole package is cheaper. In addition, the two screens are, broadly, just batteries with displays attached, which Tian hopes will offer long usage times.

But wait, folks, that's not all, since if you purchase the Neptune Suite, you'll also get a pair of fancy wireless headphones. The whole bundle is being offered on Indiegogo, with the earliest of birds able to snag the whole set for just $599, while Johnny-come-lately customers have to spend $649. It's a bit of a steal, since the final retail price will be around $949, but since that's roughly the price of a flagship smartphone for -- potentially -- five devices it's pretty reasonable. If there is one downside, it's that it won't begin shipping until February 2016.

AMOLED Panel Market, to Reach US$ 46 Billion by 2020

2014 was the year preparing a platform to develop the OLED industry in full scale.

 There was a prevalent doubt in the industry until 2014 concerning whether the OLED TV is able to break into the market or not. However, as LG Electronics successfully released the UHD OLED TV, the set manufactures were classified with the companies against LG and incapable of producing the OLED TV. Under this circumstance, the majority of TV set manufacturers including Samsung Electronics exhibited the Quantum dot (QD) BLU LCD TV at CES2015. The night view screen which was the exhibition concept only appeared on the OLED TV was employed on the QD LCD TV chasing the high contrast ratio just like the OLED TV.
In the display for a mobile device, the OLED succeeded in establishing an exclusive market with G Flex2 and Galaxy Note Edge with emphasis on the flexibility feature that LCD cannot even attempt to imitate.
According to the ‘’2015 OLED Display Annual Report’’ published by UBI Research on the 10th, the total revenue has decreased by 4% compared to the previous year due to the AMOLED panel shipments cut resulting from the low sales of Galaxy S5 in 2014.

Is the OLED industry already in crisis?
Though the OLED industry got wet with rain for a while in 2014, it will begin to solidify its place in 2015. Flexible OLED and TV are the alternatives.
UBI Research methodically analyzed and took a close look at the future of flexible OLED on the ‘’2015 OLED Display Annual Report’’. There are a number of display manufacturers developing products in view of that the rollable display is the final stage of a flexible display. But if the rollable display is to be applied on a mobile device, the cultural components are to go back to the analog age and in terms of technology, it may cause a heating problem as all parts excluding the display are concentrated on the body. For that reason, UBI Research prospected that the rollable product will be used on a large movable screen type display rather than on a mobile device.

Also the ‘’2015 OLED Display Annual Report” of UBI Research forecasts that the AMOLED panel market will grow at a CAGR of 30% reaching US$ 46 billion by 2020. Assuming the OLED panel for TV and tablet PC will take the sales share of 30% respectively in 2020, the report predicted that the key application for the OLED panel market will be a TV and a tablet PC following a smart phone.
The growth of AMOLED panel market is anticipated to accelerated after 2017 given that Chinese manufactures are also likely to invest in full scale between 2016 and 2017 to previse the Korea’s monopoly of AMOLED market.

Projection technique gives movement to static objects.

Bron; www.inavateonthenet.net

Static images can give the impression of realistic movement with a light projection technique developed by Japanese technology and communications company NTT Communication Science Laboratories. Dubbed HenGenTou (which means deformation lamps in Japanese) the illusion-based animation technique can make objects appear to move, deform or flutter and brings to life photos, paintings or written texts. The company is tipping the technology for use in advertising, interior design, art and entertainment.

Its approach builds on conventional projection mapping techniques but preserves the image of the original surface in order to deliver the appearance that a static image is moving.

The company says it can add a variety of dynamic impressions - ranging from natural liquid flows to facial expressions to a printed image or other static materials - by harnessing visual illusions. The effects can also be added to 3D objects, albeit with a restricted viewing angle.

Gigantic Dome of Love.

I got this art project offer & asked 4 projectors to surround the thing (by David Dar projections). 
amazingly - i had only 30mins for setup to do proper mapping incl. creating a connection between each 2 & trying to do so in the middle of an ongoing party was a big challenge.
so i took a big breath & I trusted my senses and almost blindly did the mapping (running to the other projectors angles to see if i matched it - whoofff...).
I was so lucky & somehow got it on the 3rd try! the gods must have wanted to see it badly... smile-emoticon cause it was suddenly perfect! & using the latest artificially awake "displace" loops was spot on!
All in all - Mapping & Vjing on the planetarium was a dream come true...

The modified Tesla in 'Racing Extinction' that's worthy of James Bond.

If a certain famous spy ever requires a high-tech vehicle to help bring environmental villains to justice, something tells me the filmmakers for the new documentary "Racing Extinction" will get a call.
The new film from director Louie Psihoyos premieres this month at the Sundance Film Festival and offers an unprecedented look at endangered species “on the edge of life,” leveraging new technologies and gear to take us behind the scenes and into dangerous worlds. Such a thrilling approach to environmental activism is nothing new for Psihoyos and his team. Back in 2009, his film “The Cove” used innovative high-tech gadgets to covertly document the tragic slaughter of dolphins in Japan, eventually winning the Academy Award for Best Documentary.
In an interview last year, Psihoyos told me that "Racing Extinction" was the result of “watching too many Jacques Cousteau specials and James Bond movies,” adding that the “technology illuminates the message.” And as we’ve seen in the trailers, one of the big highlights of that high-tech message is a modified Tesla Model S. And oh, what an incredible car it is.
Designed and engineered by Obscura Digital, this "undercover mobile eco-projection vehicle" integrates cutting-edge software and hardware to both record and deliver content. Below are five of the high-tech features dreamed up and made real for "Racing Extinction". (MI6, 007 and even Q might want to take some notes.)

One of the most head-turning modifications to the “Racing Extinction” Tesla is its electroluminescent paint job. Called LumiLor, and developed by the villain-esque sounding Darkside Scientific, this innovative paint allows a driver to custom-animate the vehicle’s exterior. According to professional racer Leilani Munter, who drives the vehicle in the film, she can “turn the color on and off by turning the electric current on and off. When it's off, the car just looks like a normal car.”
For those inspired to give their own vehicle some dynamic camouflage, Munter reveals the entire application is not cheap. “I think it's around $40,000 per gallon for that paint,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “So you are looking at about a $400,000 paint job…”

An Immersive Spherical Projection Theater for Dubai 360.

Breathtaking views from a rarely seen perspective are on show to the public at the world’s largest interactive virtual city tour. The city comes alive within a sphere presented by Dubai 360, a website that offers panoramic views. Dubai Mall shoppers can step inside a giant ball in the Star Atrium, walk along a suspended footbridge to the centre of the ball, and experience a fast-paced six-minute film of Dubai shot in 360 degrees. The installation is a 15-metre diameter spherical projection theatre, built by San Francisco company Obscura Digital. Open for public viewing for free, visitors to the Sphere will witness cutting-edge technology from the moment they step inside. Powered by 18 projectors running simultaneously, the dome-surround projections show iconic locations such as Burj Khalifa and The Palm Jumeirah in a way never seen before. The launch of Dubai 360 has established new standards for how people experience a city. The Sphere is another extension of that experience. The basic idea was to create a physical space where we take the high-quality, panoramic content from the Dubai 360 website and present it in a unique way, to offer a fully immersive journey. Dubai 360 is the first virtual city tour that uses fully interactive and immersive 360-degree panoramic photo, time-lapse and video content.

Love has no labels

The truth is this...when it all boils down to it, we're meant to love one another, not judge one another. We're quick to cast judgments on people based on the color of their skin, their age, their physical abilities...but love overcomes all of that. Love doesn't know prejudice. Love conquers all. 
When you take away all of the outer appearance, it becomes much easier to accept people for who they are, doesn't it?

Merger of street art with latest projection mapping tech was five stories high and 70 metres long.

TDC and White Night join forces for stunning graffiti mapping project

Bron: www.avinteractive.com

Merger of street art with latest projection mapping tech was five stories high and 70 metres long.
Projection mapping services and expertise from TDC – Technical Direction Company enabled graffiti artists to express their artworks using technology as part of this year’s White Night Melbourne, one of Australia’s most celebrated cultural events.

This groundbreaking piece of street art – one of the largest murals in Melbourne – was one of the highlights of White Night Melbourne 2015, a 12-hour nocturnal extravaganza running from 7pm to 7am, inspired by Paris’ Nuit Blanche and the international network of White Night programmes around the world.

Artistic director at White Night Melbourne, Andrew Walsh, said: “White Night offers a mix of visual art, exhibitions, spectacular illuminations, music, theatre, special dining experiences, film, design and performances on display in venues and major cultural institutions across the city centre.

“And TDC is clearly no stranger to world first uses of projection mapping tech or, for that matter, to White Night, having been one of our go-to, trusted technology service providers for a number of years now.”

This year was the first time that White Night Melbourne had worked with street art, presenting Sofles – Graffiti Mapped, a pioneering interactive mural project curated by Juddy Roller exploring the interconnected nature of street art, technology and the online frontier.

Sofles – Graffiti Mapped combined 3D video mapping, traditional street art and graffiti, executed by one of the most exciting and cutting edge street artists in the world: Australian born, internationally renowned artist, Sofles. Working closely with TDC and the Juddy Roller production team, including creative direction by Shaun Hossack, motion design by Grant Osborne, cinematography by Selina Miles, and a brand new musical score by New Zealand producer Opiuo.

“TDC provided Barco HDX Flex projectors, lenses and control system,” explains Brad Williams, Regional Manager, Victoria at TDC, “As well as on-site technical support this and other areas at the festival.

“The façade had quite a lot of negative space that helped with motion designers to have creativity and freedom to design the piece,” said Hassock. “The narrative includes peace, war, technological advancement to ultimate destruction and re-birth”. And TDC was absolutely vital to the entire project in bringing Sofles’ work to life! TDC were already a known and trusted partner of White Night. Plus, animation artist Grant Osborne already knew TDC, so naturally we said we wanted to work with TDC for 3D projection mapping.”

Grant Osborne mapped content using MadMapper video mapping software. TDC assisted by giving pixel space to create content within, and used the internal Barco HDX-W20 FLEX 20,000 lumens projectors warp function to correct the content.

Pebble Time is an awesome watch.

Pebble Technology, the company behind the successful Pebble smartwatch, is now developing a new version called Pebble Time - that sports a color e-paper display. The company launched a kickstarter campaign with an aim to raise $500,000. It took them one hour to raise $1 million, and now they already passed $ 11 million in funding.

The Pebble time uses a "color e-paper display" The original pebble used a 1.26" (144x168) monochrome memory LCD (transflective LCD made by Sharp). It's not clear what kind of displays will be used in the new Pebble, but as far as we know sharp do not produce a color memory LCD.
