At NAB 2018, Assimilate® was honored to receive two Studio Daily Prime Awards, which acknowledge the technology leadership of 50 individuals in the creative arts and the best in products that offer creative professionals useful feature sets, innovative qualities, ease of use, and strong price/performance value.
Jeff Edson, CEO at Assimilate, received a Top 50 Studio Daily Prime Award for his career-long achievements in pushing the technology and performance envelope for electronic design automation (EDA), the first Windows/NT 3D graphics workstations and his pioneering efforts in developing real-time digital post-production workflows for 2D, 3D, and VR. In 2016, Assimilate established its VR leadership position with the launch of the first VR end-to-end workflow, SCRATCH VR. This was followed by the only integrated, VR-production end-to-end workflows that include 1) SCRATCH VR and the Z CAM S1 and S1 Pro VR360 cameras, and 2) SCRATCH VR and the Z CAM K1 Pro VR180/3D camera – from preview to shoot, data management, stitching, color grading, compositing, finishing, and mastering.
Assimilate was also honored with the Studio Daily Prime Award for Bleeding-Edge Products. The Bleeding Edge Awards recognize products that advance state-of-the- art and still-emerging media formats, including 360/VR/AR, HDR, and ultra-high-resolution production and post. Assimilate’s award-winning product is the first, complete, integrated VR production workflow with the Z CAM S1 Pro VR360 Camera / ASSIMILATE SCRATCH VR-Z Post Tools Bundle: from image acquisition with Z CAM’s high-performance S1 Pro, and stitching with its optical WonderStitch software, through to a streamlined VR post-production workflow with ASSIMILATE’s real-time, post-production SCRATCH VR-Z tools. The ultimate benefit is that content creators can now focus on their creativity and storytelling rather than wrangling the complexities of VR technology.
