REALVIZ Introduces ?Absolu MatchMover SubscriptionsNew monthly subscription scheme now available (July 01, 2004)
REALVIZ, a leader in image processing software development, has announced the introduction of REALVIZ ?Absolu, a new monthly subscription scheme, which will enable single desktop users, post-production houses, architects, and video users who require occasional matchmoving facilities, to access their internationally renowned tracking software, MatchMover Professional 3.0 - regardless of size or budget. The new scheme is available from June 2004.
REALVIZ MatchMover Pro 3.0 is the professional way to track 3D camera data and motion from videos and film sequences, providing the ease of automatic tracking, with the precision control matchmoving professionals demand. Considered by many post-production professionals as a key tool in their armory, MatchMover Pro 3.0 has already been selected by hundreds of studios worldwide, including leading production and effects houses such as Cinesite, Framestore CFC, Sony Imageworks, Warner Brothers Animation, Electronic Arts, Duran Duboi and many others.
REALVIZ MatchMover technology has been used to create stunning visual effects in the following films, plus many more: ?Troy ?The Last Samurai Hellboy Ella Enchanted Underworld Daredevil Spy Kids: 3D Looney Tunes: Back in Action The Ring.
Under the new scheme, monthly payments will start from only 240.00 Euros ($ 300.00 US) per month for companies, schools, universities or freelance artists, and as low as 50 Euros ($ 60.00 US) per month for professors, teachers, research scientists and students. Under this new arrangement, upgrades and new versions of MatchMover Pro are included and users will have full access to the very latest version of the software. A range of additional modules is currently scheduled to be added to the application during the course of 2004, the first of which will be the motion capture (Mo Cap) module, available at Siggraph 2004.
?Its clear, that there are a lot of people out there, who dont fall into the standard category of the large production facility, who may occasionally need a quality matchmoving software to complete their project, says Dominique Pouliquen, REALVIZ CEO. ?The ?Absolu scheme enables these people to access a 10k$ value application, but at a price thats not going to break the bank. Weve got a bunch of exciting new stuff coming up in MatchMover Pro in 2004, and those people who come on board with ?Absolu will be in the unique position of being able to access these new features automatically.
