Why Visit CVMP?
CVMP presents the latest research outcomes in Visual Media, from the leading production and post-production specialists (in the worlds of film, broadcast and games) with imaging and graphics researchers.
Bringing together great minds, all interested in visual media, produces some amazing results and some very fruitful collaborations.
Industry/Academia collaborations are really beneficial to both sides. Industry can meet the leading Researchers in Europe and get insights into specific technological advances and Researchers can see what problems really need solving in the industrial practice of Visual Media Production.
In previous years CVMP has led to further collaborative work such as Funded Project Partnerships, offers of employment and working together to problem solve on productions.
The BFI provides an accessible forum for the European Media Industry and is a great place to meet your peers and to strengthen current partnerships. We bring the high calibre speakers from around the world, to the centre of London.
The drinks evening held on the first day is attended by both speakers and attendees and is an ideal opportunity to discuss topics raised in the conference and to brainstorm with like minded people.
Here's what some of the attendees had to say about previous years...
"Attending CVMP 2010 was really a pleasure. A great occasion where academia and production can meet. The interaction creates things that none of them could come up with alone."
Josh Smolic, Disney Research, Zurich
"It was a great opportunity to be able to present my team’s work to a like-minded audience."
Rob Pieke, MPC
"I appreciated the chance of introducing the 3D capabilities of the Alexa camera to such a high-key audience. At the same time, I was excited to learn about so much excellent research in the area of multi-camera capture, 3D scene analysis and synthesis. Together with all the valuable discussions during the conference, I have now a much better understanding how we can move our own development forward”
Johannes Steurer, ARRI
"There was an amazing line-up of keynote speakers this year and I saw lots of really interesting talks. I'm looking forward to attending again next year.”
