In our previous post, we shared some fantastic insights from Charles Poynton from our private member forums for our advanced Digital Colour Theory course running this term. In addition to the forums and VPN software, another bonus extra that comes with membership is access to our weekly video magazine “Background Fundamentals”, which covers the latest tech and trends in the industry. We thought we’d share last week’s episode, which was a visit to the Emmy-award winning Lightcraft Technology headquarters, makers of the Previzion virtual studio system.
This episode was actually the result of a question from one of our members in the forums, who asked about realtime keying. Of course, keying is just one aspect of the the Previzion system, which is used on many broadcast television programs such as Once Upon A Time, PanAm, and Revenge and also as a preproduction and production tool to visualize virtual sets.
