TinkerTouch & Limecraft

Gent, dec 16th 2011 – Limecraft and TinkerTouch are developing SCOOP, a tool for computer assisted manufacturing of television and film production. Instead of hand-drafting a storyboard, scenes and characters are animated.  Virtual cameras render an accurate point of view and an integrated speech synthesizer provides a good approximation of time. All editorial decisions are directly linked to a time-line and that information is used to automate production and post-production processes.www.teststarter.com

Conventionally, a large number of the creative decisions are taken during production, which is thus prone to trial and error. There is huge potential for improvement in terms of quality, lead-time and cost.  In the near future, cross-functional and configurable content will irreversibly substitute traditional television. By using Scoop, producers adopt agile, cost-effective and scalable methods that are essential to manage the complexity of multi-channel and interactive distribution environment.
