+ Southpaw Technology, a leading developer of production digital asset management (DAM) technology for digital entertainment and enterprise companies, announced today that it has rolled out its flexible DAM solution, TACTIC, to digital intermediary Legend 3D, to speed its 2D to 3D conversion workflow. Digital media systems integrator, Integrated Media Technologies Inc., assisted Southpaw with the studio-wide roll out. Legend 3D is the creator of a patented 2D to 3D conversion technology that seamlessly enhances filmmakers’ storytelling through pixel perfect™ 3D. Merging his expertise in graphic arts and neuroscience, Legend 3D’s founder, Dr. Barry Sandrew, developed the process that integrates sophisticated technology with skilled artistry, offering filmmakers incredible flexibility and customizable conversion of film, television, advertising, online and mobile content from 2D to 3D. The company is now deploying TACTIC across its San Diego studio to manage all of the digital assets in its conversion projects. Designed by veterans of film, visual effects and video game productions, TACTIC gives studios an open, flexible solution that speeds the creation of digital assets across highly complex digital productions. Combining asset management, workflow management, project management and communication tools with a dynamic Web-based interface, cross-platform support and robust API, Southpaw enables vast teams of artists and animators to work with terabytes of digital assets the way they want to, rather than forcing them into a specific workflow. This significantly speeds and secures the creation process, while minimizing the costs of training large teams on completely new and closed systems. >> More info about Tactic
