MONTREAL, CANADA. – June 22, 2011 – 36Pix, the leader in green screen services for the photography industry, has announced that its ChromaStar® green screen extraction technology has received the Silver award at yesterday’s ceremony revealing the winners of I3A’s VISION 2020 Imaging Innovation Awards. The announcement was made during the 6Sight Mobile Imaging Summit event taking place in San Jose, California.
“We are excited that ChromaStar® has been recognized as one of the most influential imaging technologies in the industry,” said Robert Ste-Marie, President of 36Pix. “ChromaStar® has been developed in-house, which has allowed us to make considerable advancements in a very short period of time. This award validates our commitment to innovation and our continuous efforts to ensure that ChromaStar® stays the best green screen engine on the market.”
ChromaStar® is designed specifically for high volume green screen extraction in portrait photography markets. The KnockOut (KO) service automatically removes the entire green background by solving the most challenging green screen problems, including strong shadows and green spill on the subject, while preserving fine detail and transparency.
“I3A is pleased to recognize and reward 36Pix’s ingenious approach to solving the issues of high volume background imaging in a highly efficient and flexible way,” said I3A President Lisa Walker. “The ChromaStar® technology is an innovation that will have significant benefits for the industry and for consumers.”
