Virtual reality in all its states at the Cannes Film Festival
Dive into space with Thomas Pesquet, face a cobra or shoot with Bela Lugosi, aka Dracula: si she does not compete for the Palme d'Or, virtual reality makes her show at the Cannes Film Festival.
In 2017, VR (Virtual Reality) was invited in official selection with "Carne y Arena", a dive into the hell lived by migrants signed by the Mexican Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu. No such honor this year, but it still has its place dedicated to the Film Market, where technology demonstrations and business during the Festival take place, with nearly 150 short or medium-length films.
On the Majestic beach, "The Wild Immersion" plunges the viewer into a virtual reserve. Via an audio-video headset, stuck in a swivel chair, the viewer moves 360 degrees, surrounded by cobras, threatened with being crushed by a herd of elephants or immersed in the middle of sharks.
In total, one year of shooting for Adrien Moisson, former veterinarian and advertising, in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute. And one goal: to make a state of wildlife and warn about endangered species. The general public will be able to immerse themselves in these images from June 1st at the Forum des Images in Paris. Then, by the end of 2018, it will be Shenzen (China), Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles and Montreal.
- Cap on the stars -
In a Cannes apartment, a few meters from the Palais des Festivals, the atmosphere is the horror film of the 50s.
With DVgroup, a French studio, we are witnessing the shooting of a scene where Bela Lugosi watches alone at home one of Dracula's films having made his fame. The former Hungarian star comes to life via an actor and the use of technology + Motion Capture +. And the scene is filmed in + Volume Capture +, by a dozen cameras that record not images, but the volume of the board.
The scene is in a box, in a few seconds, and immediately mounted, from a simple tablet. Then the viewer can immediately watch it, and even enter the scene, via a VR headset: Bela Lugosi is there, a few inches, and we can sit next to him on the couch.
In the bowels of the Palais des Festivals, you can go straight into space, "in the shoes of Thomas Pesquet", harnessed and equipped with an audio-video headset. Equipped with six servomotors (electronic, mechanical and automatic mixtures), the chair, a technology of the French e6Lab, reproduces the shocks or vibrations experienced by the French astronaut.
- "Design of the movement" -
If the images are signed Pesquet himself, his movements were modeled by Optima Reality, another French company, specialized in "the design of the movement". "We designed a mixer that allows us to simulate the slightest movement in six dimensions, like a ball on a bath of oil," says Olivier Chalumeau, co-founder of the company: "We can go up to the 3G, or take the viewer in loops, tendrils ... Through the fan, we can simulate the wind, and we can even project water on the spectator, even smell his environment ".
Lenovo Wireless Headsets, Facebook Oculus Headphones, Motion-Playing Chairs, Joysticks Enabling the Spectator to Become an Actor in the Virtual Environment in which He Moves: "On VR, Film Professionals Have Passed the Period from discovery to a new stage, (...) by testing different modes of diffusion ", explains to AFP Jérôme Paillard, director of the Marché du film, where this technology made its entry in 2016.
" The VR goes does it dethrone the traditional cinema? ", questioned several speakers Thursday, during a conference on the film market. "The cinema has never backed down", is persuaded Olivier Chalumeau anyway. "So he will integrate this new data, as he did with the speaking, or computer graphics."
Sony's WI-1000XM2 wireless earbuds caters to the neckband crowd.
Sony's 1000XM3 duo offers stellar sound and powerful noise cancellation in both over-ear and true wireless options. The 1000X line also includes a set of neckband-style wireless earbuds, the WI-1000X. Here at IFA, the company debuted the next version of those with the WI-1000XM2. The one key upgrade is to the noise cancellation tech inside. The WI-1000XM2 packs the same QN1 chip from the WH-1000XM3. Sony says it not only does a better job blocking out sounds around you, but the component uses less power for noise cancellation. Indeed, I had the chance to put that to the test at Sony's busy IFA booth.
