MPC has become the first company to buy FilmLight’s new Truelight 3D player, an on-set and post review and appraisal system for stereo 3D footage.

MPC has purchased three systems, two of which have already been installed in its Wardour Street headquarters for use on a current stereo 3D project.

Launched officially at IBC, the Truelight 3D player enables production teams to see exactly how their stereoscopic 3D shots will look when projected for the cinema audience.

MPC head of engineering David Spilsbury said: “We needed a 2K stereo player with a comprehensive toolset that integrated into our Linux stereo pipeline.

“We worked with FilmLight’s R&D team to upgrade our existing Truelight Player and, having tested the workflows, we’ve now purchased a further two systems. The player includes tools such as stereo fix which will allow our operators to make adjustments and get important feedback during client VFX shot review sessions.”
