RealD has acquired the technology and assets of Tessive, a leader in motion image processing. RealD will use Tessive’s proprietary software to launch RealD TrueMotion, a new production tool able to correct imperfections in motion capture like the “wagon wheel effect” and choppy “judder.”
“For over 10 years RealD has delivered state-of-the-art technology from capture to delivery in order to achieve the best visual experience possible for moviegoing consumers. RealD TrueMotion perfectly complements existing RealD technologies that enhance the overall cinema experience,” said Michael V. Lewis, Founder and Chairman of RealD.
In addition to TrueMotion and RealD TrueImage — which removes defects, noise and artifacts in individual frames and enhances visual crispness — the company is introducing the Ultimate Screen to market. At CineEurope last month, exhibitors and studios got to check out how this revolutionary achievement in engineered screen technology heightens the moviegoing experience in both 2D and 3D.
Tessive founder Tony Davis will join RealD as a Senior Scientist working in the company’s Research and Development division. Davis will continue to lead development of the software for a wide variety of potential uses including HDR and VR.
