BEVERLY HILLS, CA — RealD has acquired the technology and assets of Tessive, a company involved in motion image processing. RealD will use Tessive’s proprietary software to launch RealD TrueMotion, a new production tool with the ability to correct imperfections in motion capture, including the “wagon wheel effect” and motion choppiness known as “judder.”
Real D TrueMotion delivers sharp, dramatic motion images and has already been embraced by leading directors and cinematographers on highly anticipated films.
“RealD TrueMotion complements existing RealD technologies that enhance the overall cinema experience,” said Michael V. Lewis, Founder and Chairman of RealD.
In addition to RealD TrueMotion and RealD TrueImage, which removes defects, noise and artifacts in individual frames and enhances the crispness of the visual image, the company is currently introducing the Ultimate Screen to market. During CineEurope last month, exhibitors and studios heralded the way this new achievement in engineered screen technology raised the bar for the quality of presentation and the moviegoing experience in both 2D and 3D.
As part of the acquisition, 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.
