8i debuts 3D Video file format based on light field tech for rich, realistic interaction
8i, a startup based in New Zealand, has unveiled a new 3D Video format based on light field technology. Its mission is to offer a more realistic take on virtual reality and augmented reality, particularly in its portrayal of humans.
3D Video is an alternative to computer graphics in that it converts multiple digital videos to light field format and reconstructs the streams as volumetric 3D video. This aids in the creation of realistic VR content with any video-capable camera when combined with the company's proprietary software.
To show off the capabilities of the new technology -- released today for viewing in its alpha form -- 8i is inaugurating its #100humans Portrait Series, the first 3D video portraits of real people filmed in the format. This interview and performance series features musicians, athletes and technology experts.
