RealD Acquires Tessive, Plans to Launch Motion Capture Tool RealD TrueMotion

Principal licensor of 3D technology RealD Inc. announced on Wednesday that it has obtained the technology and assets of Tessive, a motion picture processing company.

With Tessive, RealD will initiate RealD TrueMotion, described in an official release as “a new production tool with the unparalleled ability to correct imperfections in motion capture.”

“For over 10 years RealD has delivered state-of-the-art technology from capture to delivery in order to achieve the best visual experience possible for moviegoing consumers,” said founder and chairman of RealD Michael Lewis. “RealD TrueMotion perfectly complements existing RealD technologies that enhance the overall cinema experience.”

Tessive founder Tony Davis will join RealD’s research and development division as a senior scientist.

Earlier this year, RealD celebrated a decade in the industry. “Our overall goal is to make the visual experience better on every device that you come in contact with,” Lewis told Variety. “The time that I enjoy the most is when we’re showing new technology and people are really blown away. We were able to do that early in our company’s history. We think it’s really important to continue that, because what we did five or 10 years ago is not what we want to be doing today or tomorrow.”
