Faceware Technologies, Maxon and Nvidia Honored for New Technologies.
postPerspective, a source of creative and technology intelligence for the post production and production industries, announced the winners of the postPerspective Impact Awards from SIGGRAPH 2017. The postPerspective Impact Award winners from the 2017 SIGGRAPH show are:
• Faceware Technologies for Faceware Live 2.5
• Maxon for Cinema 4D R19
• Nvidia for OptiX 5.0
Seeking to recognize debut products with real-world applications, the postPerspective Impact Awards are determined by an anonymous judging body comprised of respected industry professionals. The awards honor innovative products and technologies for the post production and production industries that will influence the way people work.
“All three of these technologies are very worthy recipients of our first postPerspective Impact Awards from SIGGRAPH,” said Randi Altman, postPerspective’s founder and editor-in-chief (pictured top left). “These awards celebrate companies that define the leading-edge of technology while producing tools that actually make users’ working lives easier and projects better, and our winners certainly fall into that category.
“While SIGGRAPH’s focus is on VFX, animation, VR/AR and the like, the types of gear they have on display vary. Some are suited for graphics and animation, while others have uses that slide into post production. We’ve tapped real-world users in these areas to vote for our Impact Awards, and they have determined what tools might be most impactful to their day-to-day work. That’s what makes our awards so special.”
SIGGRAPH 2017, which took place July 30-Aug. 3 in Los Angeles, is the world’s largest annual conference and exhibition in computer graphics and interactive techniques. Future postPerspective Impact Awards are scheduled to celebrate innovative product and technology launches at IBC2017 and the 2018 NAB Show.
