Circlescan 4D - The Ultimate Visual Dimension
El Segundo, California - 30 March 2001 (PRN): Video realism has entered the fourth dimension-time. The addition of time to the basic three dimensions-height, width, and length-has opened a breath taking new world of visual intensity. For the first time ever, film and video can match the experience of being there.
Time is necessary for the human brain to perceive depth. Our eyes send constantly changing images to the brain. Having two eyes allows the brain to scan images from slightly different perspectives. The ability to scan an object in relation to its surroundings enables the brain to determine relative distances. That's how we know the depth of a set of stairs so our legs will make the appropriate movement and not stumble.
Researchers at E.P. Industries in El Segundo studied how the brain perceives depth and applied that knowledge to the invention of Circlescan 4D. By mimicking the mechanics of our eyes, they developed several revolutionary devices that allow all types of film and video cameras to record images with life-like depth and realism. The resulting video can be projected and viewed without any special equipment. Circlescan 4D can be viewed live or on tape.
Circlescan 4D is literally and figuratively revolutionary. A variety of patented mechanical devices impact the relationship of the professional video camera and lens to the scene being filmed. The different systems make it possible to use any camera or lens. The artistic integrity of the director is never compromised. All of the Circlescan devices produce a sequential conical motion. As the name implies, scans are made in a constant circular motion.
Circlescan 4D should not be confused with traditional 3D movies. Circlescan 4D takes the viewer into the scene through the multi-layered images that make up everything we see. The impression is one of being able to reach deep into the scene. It's like a window on reality.
Traditional 3D is much more costly and complicated to produce, project, and view. 3D uses two cameras to record a series of left, right, left, right images. The resulting two points of view produce images that appear to come out of the screen when viewed through the dissimilar lenses of 3D glasses. The effect is more of a sight gag than a reflection of reality.
Circlescan 4D can be viewed in theaters, on TV, and at sports venues. It can be combined with high definition TV for incredible new levels of realism and definition. Circlescan 4D will enhance any film or video project.
Fox Kids Network has presented the world wide premiere of Circlescan 4D. A special episode of The Power Rangers was filmed entirely in Circlescan 4D. The Power Rangers' video had its debut at Universal Studios before it becomes available with a McDonald's Happy Meal promotion.
