You might not be aware, but entertainment technology is abundant in our daily lives. These are workings and components that improve or gives way for us to have an enjoyable entertainment experience. The main purpose of this technological advancements is to enable us to find enjoyment, relaxation, and maybe even be productive during our downtime.
This has become very apparent in the fields of film and photography. It can be seen in the quality of the pictures and videos that are as close to reality as possible. It is providing vivid imagery and even mind-bending flexibility at very reasonable rates.
Virtual Simulation or Virtual Reality
One of the biggest breakthroughs in entertainment technology is the innovation of how reality is perceived. This technology is achieved via a combination of audio and visual gadgets combined with either an external prop or thru gloves. This set up will allow you to experience a three-dimensional simulation of a particular image or settings wherein the user can interact with the elements therein as if he is actually in that situation.
This has found many practical applications, not just in the gaming industry. Many have been using VR glasses in order to have realistic outdoor exercise sessions or other activities that have been restricted lately.
High Dynamic Range or HDR
This applies to photography wherein this technology is used in order to reproduce a wide range of luminosity as compared to the regular digital imaging techniques. In television, this is so that you will be provided brighter highlights and a more detailed color range for a crisper image and a more enhanced viewing experience.
This is a combination of what is actually the real world and a superimposition of a computer-created image or animation. By using the actual real life backdrop, the user will get a different feel of the immersive activity. Most notable of this is the AR game Pokémon Go which drove the world into a frenzy when it launched.
Light Field Camera
Also referred to as a plenoptic camera, this makes use of the light field coming from the scene, taking into consideration the light direction and intensity and translates that information into vividly formed pictures and scenes. This removes the need for multiple camera shots, as one camera can effectively perform and capture that function, thereby allowing for a smoother flow of image and a more defined scene.
This technology has the ability to generate a photorealistic image from any form of a model by using the computing capabilities of the cloud and providing you with this image in real-time. This comes very useful in movie productions in so far as even low budget productions will be able to create realistic sceneries without breaking the bank.
