Are you interested in the technologies being used by James Cameron and Peter Jackson? Then this Digiscape is for you!
This networking event will present an overview of 3D previsualization through display for animation and live action, as well as screenings of a variety of 3D material. For the display, SIRT will be using a new Christie Digital CP4220 4K theatrical cinema projector located in the Centre’s 5000-square-foot studio space at Pinewood Toronto Studios.
The Screen Industries Research and Training Centre (SIRT) is heavily involved in applied research and best practices for stereoscopic 3D production and post-production for film and television. From previsualization to delivery, this ranges from work in TV documentary and factual entertainment, to high end digital cinema production for theatrical features.
SIRT is in the process of establishing a major research project on the High Frame Rate (HRF) technology being used by James Cameron and Peter Jackson. In partnership with Christie Digital, they will launch a unique international centre which will generate test footage, evaluate workflows from production through display, and conduct workshops on HFR technology.
Don’t miss your opportunity to learn more about cutting-edge technical production facilities!

About the SIRT Centre
The Screen Industries Research and Training Centre (SIRT) is dedicated to fostering collaborative innovation in Ontario’s film, gaming and television industries. SIRT works with industry, academic, and government partners to conduct collaborative research and provide Ontario’s screen-based professionals with the training needed to build the province’s competitive advantage. SIRT was established by Sheridan College at Pinewood Toronto Studios in early 2010.
Launched in Spring 2010, Digiscape is a series designed to help screen-based media professionals adapt to digital shifts in the industry. Presentations focus on technological, regulatory and creative trends, and examine such topics as transmedia project development, rights management, collaboration with digital media companies and the facilitation of audience interactivity. With the goal of deconstructing industry silos, Digiscape events offer the opportunity for traditional and digital media professionals to connect in an informal setting.
