Nokia Technologies and Technicolor announced that they signed a partnership for creating immersive VR content using the Nokia OZO+ camera and OZO software suite. The OZO+ VR camera will be featured at the Technicolor Experience Center (TEC) and Nokia and Technicolor will unveil series of Masterclass sessions for 360 Filmmaking. Apart for showcasing and teaching how to create VR videos, Nokia and Technicolor will work together on variety of live action 360 projects as well.
Marcie Jastrow, SVP of Immersive Media and Head of the Technicolor Experience Center, said: “In the creation of immersive content, live action cameras are key to the storytelling process, and Nokia has invested a lot of time and research in understanding how to provide content creators with the tools they need to produce high quality image capture. Technicolor has a long history in applying our industry leading color-science capabilities and image processing pipeline to work with camera manufacturers in order to create the highest quality capture techniques and outcomes. That is why the Technicolor Experience Center is proud to be partnering with Nokia to offer classes that will explore the creation of high quality immersive content.”
Csilla Kozma, Head of Content Relations, Nokia Technologies, said: “We have been working with Technicolor and its brands such as Moving Picture Company (MPC) to deliver amazing projects like the OneRepublic’s ‘Kids’ music video, ‘Heroes,’ and ‘Playtime.’ The opening of the TEC allows us to elevate our relationship and share the key learnings we have gained in virtual reality with a wider audience through a series of Masterclasses.”
