The City of Busan has announced that the ‘Cinema Robotics Lab’ has been completed in the Busan Cinema Studio on December 13, 2018 and started the operation of the next-generation robotic imaging control system that integrates ICT, video, and robot technology in film studios with various equipment in order to integrate the related technologies.
The three-dimensional production center Digital Bay, which is Asia's first virtual studio, has been working on the Ministry of Science and ICT’s “cinema robotics” establishment project to revamp some of the Busan Cinema Studio and adopt so-called ‘cinema robotics’ by 2020 since first beginning in 2018. The completion of the project will see the latest robotic technology applied to the film-making process in the city. Busan invested a total of 6 billion won from both the central government and city’s budget.
Using cinema robotics technology can reduce errors of composition with computer graphics, as well as production time, and can help cut production costs by up to 30 percent.
The City of Busan expects that the successful completion of the project improves industrial competence in order to dominate and contribute to creating jobs in the high-value immersive content market.
