The Advanced Imaging Society today announced winners of the 11th Annual Entertainment Technology Lumiere Awards, recognizing technical achievements that are currently accelerating the entertainment industry. THE THIRD FLOOR is thrilled and honored to have received a 2021 AIS Lumiere Award for the company’s AR app Cyclops!
**11TH ANNUAL ENTERTAINMENT TECHNOLOGY LUMIERE AWARD WINNER** Cyclops is a streamlined simulcam solution, able to be deployed on hand-held devices. Using Cyclops, filmmakers and their teams can easily visualize CG assets at a real set or location and get a sense of the VFX action being shot. Cyclops uses augmented reality and Unreal game engine to track and show overlays of digital characters or elements and the physical environment in real time. Cyclops composites VFX objects on top of the live video coming from the rear-facing mobile camera and, while offering capabilities similar to simulcam, runs entirely on the hand-held display.
