James Cameron has teamed up with Vince Pace creating a company that will help anyone looking to make movies deliver them to audiences in 3D. By selling and leasing 3D cameras, it seems that the Avatar director believes that the future of filmmaking is upon us, and is looking to seize the opportunity.
Due to his belief that all movie and television productions will have 2D and 3D versions, Cameron is working on a format that will allow 2D and 3D production to be simultaneous when shooting live events. Interesting, huh? They call the system “The Shadow”, and the Masters golf tourney in Augusta, GA already tested the technology.
Later in his interview, Cameron talks about full and half-resolution 3D experiences. He believes that anything more than half is overkill when considering a home entertainment setup. Wait, what? He continues to discuss the technological differences between active and passive 3D technology, but in the end, settles on the fact that certain drawbacks shouldn’t deter consumers from electing to leave a bit on the table in terms of resolution.
He never came right out and said that passive technology is good enough, but that seems to be where his thoughts are heading. In the meantime, there are plenty of tech gurus out there working on the resolution issues, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled. This issue won’t be going away anytime soon…in fact, due to Cameron’s involvement, it seems that it’s just getting going!
