Pixar Animation was honored with the Sir Charles Wheatstone Award for education and distinguished achievement in 3D storytelling. Directors, producers, and production executives were in attendance from Hollywood and more than a dozen countries including: China, Taiwan, Japan, the U.K., the E.U., and Canada.
The Society’s Century Award was presented to Steve Schklair, Founder and CEO of 3ality Technica, whose camera systems have been used for films including: “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug,” “The Great Gatsby,” and “U2 3D in Concert.”
“It is clear from these winners that 3D is maturing as an art form,” said Society Awards Chairman Buzz Hays. “From live action, to animated, to concert movies, to documentaries, today’s audiences are experiencing 3D in astounding and exciting new productions like never before,” he commented.
In two new “Advanced Imaging” categories, the Society presented Lumiere statuettes to “Space: Unraveling the Cosmos” (3net Studios) for “4K Documentary” and “Breaking Bad” (AMC) for “4K Entertainment.”
“Many of tonight’s honorees are now bound for the Academy Awards, which indicates just how far 3D as an art form has come,” said Society President Jim Chabin. “Ultra-High Def and 4K programming is fast becoming a new standard as we move into the next decade. ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Space: Unraveling the Cosmos’ boldly embraced this new digital technology. The enhanced quality of their productions using 4K was brilliant,” added Chabin.
In the category of Live Event, Taiwanese rock band Mayday won for its 3D concert movie “Mayday Nowhere” (B’in Music). The Japanese film “Space Pirate Captain Harlock” (Qtech) was awarded best “International Animated Feature.” “Mr. Hublot” (Zeilt Productions) was awarded a Lumiere for best “International Animated Short.” The stop motion movie “Present for You” (PLUS heads) won the best “International Live Action Feature.” The award for best “Live Action Short” went to Kafard Films for “Lapse of Time.” The best “International Entertainment – Music” Lumiere went to “Des Roar” (3D International Media Partners).

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
