Wild Capture Heads to Augmented World Expo USA 2023
We are pleased to announce our presence at the Augmented World Expo (AWE) USA 2023. AWE is the premier AR/VR event focused on Spatial Computing, including AR, VR, MR, and enabling technologies. The in-person expo and conference take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif., from May 31 - June 2, with virtual sessions taking place on AWELive.com.
We are setting the standard for digital-to-human workflows that can be seamlessly integrated across 3D pipelines. The Wild Capture Digital Human Platform is a suite of AI-driven tools that enables the integration of volumetric video and realistic digital humans. The company's core Unify Solver technology optimizes the transformation of volumetric footage into standard 3D animated assets that integrate into most existing pipelines.
Louis Normandin, Wild Capture COO, will join XR industry professionals and thought leaders at AWE as both online session presenter and conference track chair. Normandin brings unique expertise and perspective to the world of cinematography and production technology. In his current role, Normandin is chiefly responsible for Wild Capture's on-set technologies and company operations. Normandin is a member of the Realtime Society's Interactive Storytelling Interoperability RealTime Standards and the AI for Visual Arts special interest groups. He is also a member of the International Cinematographer's Guild and the Society of Camera Operators.
Wild Capture Highlights at the AWE USA 2023
AWE.Live Online Session: "XR Interoperability and Immersion - Everyone Loves What They Already Know"
Presenter: Louis Normandin, Wild Capture, COO
Date: May 24, 2023
Time: 6:00 pm
Artists, creators, and audiences continually adapt new technologies to their existing skillsets, inspirations, and experiences. In this AWE.Live online session, Louis Normandin explores the crucial role of interoperability in the XR ecosystem. As 3D capture, processing, and distribution technologies constantly evolve and scale, he will also discuss the importance of standardizing volumetric video formats to help drive usability and improve overall efficiency.
"When the technical pipelines that support immersion-based content work in harmony with all users to span the gap in user experience, enablement across the medium advances faster and more efficiently to drive growth," says Normandin.
[Note: Registration on AWE.Live is required to access the session. AWE Community registration provides access to all online sessions and Main Stage sessions from in-person AWE events.]
