Lighting systems are used in
post-production within the cinematic industry. These lighting systems may use a
large number of light sources. Without the use of powerful and costly
processing systems, it can be challenging to control the light sources to achieve
a particular effect. Other issues currently faced by the industry when using
complex systems are
calibration issues, lack of HDR support, and hardware that cannot keep up with
the rapidly changing light settings.
USC researchers have developed a lighting
system capable of post-production relighting and
facial scanning. The lights can be programmed, synced and controlled from one
master board. The multiple-LED approach used allows for easy maintenance and a
relatively low cost.
