Fraunhofer Previewing 'Hybrid 2D/3D' Camera Co-Developed With Disney and ARRI

Hollywood Reporter reports from NAB that Germany’s research organization Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute is presenting a series of innovative camera developments during the NAB show — including a proof of concept trifocal camera system that the Institute is developing in association with Walt Disney Animation Studios Research and camera maker ARRI.

The  camera uses a “hybrid 2D/3D” approach to capturing 3D that effectively combines 3D cinematography with 2D-to-3D conversion.

Fraunhofer is planning to test the camera system with Disney, which will use it to make a short film with an eye toward feature production.
