eGPU Pro Helps Create 3D AR Model of Amazon Rainforest

PostMon Sep 23, 2019 12:51 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that the Blackmagic eGPU Pro was used by SeeBoundless to help create the first large scale 3D augmented reality (AR) model of the Amazon rainforest. As part of an upcoming TIME exposé on the Amazon, the Blackmagic eGPU Pro was used daily to power stitching thousands of images together while on location in the Amazon.

SeeBoundless is a tech lab, design studio and communication firm, and its immersive storytelling and photogrammetry is used by news outlets, educa-tors and organizations around the world. In 2016, SeeBoundless started de-veloping the standards and practices for 360 narrative storytelling with The Weather Channel and The Washington Post and has recently begun offering mobile AR production for worldwide news organizations, non-profits and foundations.

SeeBoundless was recently hired by TIME to create an extensive ground to treetop photogrammetry AR model of large parts of the Amazon rainforest. Showcased in TIME Magazine, the TIME website, and most impressively on the brand new TIME Immersive app, the model allows readers to move through a high resolution virtual rainforest, exposing the realities and im-pacts of deforestation.
