The 10th annual CVMP Conference will take place for two days November 6-7 at Leicester Square’s Vue Cinema, London. Anil Kokaram, CVMP Conference chair and tech lead at YouTube/Google said, “Attendees can expect talks from technical Oscar winners and a rare exposition of Emmy winning YouTube technology, good lunches, an excellent venue, and a chance to get out of your daily routine and be surprised by new technology and new ideas.”

Eoin Greenham, global head of View-D Pipeline and Rajat Roy, global technical supervisor at Prime Focus will explore in detail the art and science of creating compelling stereo 3D imagery from a 2D source with reference to stereo conversion work on shows such as Gravity, Star Wars Episodes I-III, The Wizard of Oz, World War Z and more.

In his talk, professor Thorsten Herfet, director of research and operations at the IVCI will give an overview of the European Commission funded project SCENE, which invents a new scene representation maintaining all information captured and enabling pre-processing to add semantic information that eases the post-production process. In addition the talk will demonstrate scalable display walls for extremely high-resolution reproduction of moving images that will support the new workflow.

CVMP is an impartial event organized in partnership with The Foundry and committee members Trinity College Dublin, BBC R&D and the University of Surrey. Leading sponsors include Google, NVIDIA, Framestore, The Visual Effects Society, CG Society and FXGuide.
