We can provide a truly immersive experience in these different ways:
Interactive / Digital – content for web & mobile devices is the fastest growing market for Time-Slice® Films. From exploratory high fashion tableaux to dynamic 360 degree e-commerce product shots, there is huge demand to provide new & innovative experiences for users.
Live Sports & Events – with our Live-To-Air systems, near real-time playback of events is made possible. Captured action is processed in seconds ready for play-out or as an asset for use in a later edit. Combined with our experienced team of on-site motion graphic designers, memorable, eye catching results can quickly be delivered.
Visual FX – with nearly 20 years of production experience, Time-Slice® Films has serviced the film & broadcast industries around the world. Our current arrays offer near instant review of takes on-set, allowing directors to have absolute confidence & make sure they are getting what they want ‘in the can’. Our crew will be part of the team & help facilitate your creative vision throughout the process.
All of the above can be made stereoscopic 3D should you require.
Our Time-Slice camera array is a 2nd generation digital system. Its image quality allows the output of our array to match with anything from SD to HD and all the way up to 4K in resolution. Also because of this resolution, dynamic virtual camera moves are possible in post, allowing you to push-in to a shot by up to a factor of 4 in some cases. Additionally with our bespoke software we’re able to offer playback of takes on set within minutes, allowing your creative team to see what they’re getting ‘in the can’ almost instantly. A far cry from previous systems where it could be a number of days before you had any idea whether or not a shot had been successful due to the film needing to be processed.
