Nowadays, everything can take pictures: Cellphones, mp3-players, watches, even sunglasses come with built-in cameras. 2 Megapixel dwarfs that transform our world into chunky pixel mosaics. Modern day diaries in 72 ppi. And life looks pretty shallow in lo-res-land. Where’s the detail?
Here: xRez Studio is a Santa Monica company that creates extremely high resolution gigapixel photographs. The high-res images are complex compositions of hundreds of single shots created with extensive motion control gear. The images enable the creation of immersive digital environments and are being used for visual effects sequences, fulldome theater-presentations or large-scale exhibition prints.
