Article in WIRED magazine
The Civetta 360° HDR capturing technology combined with the 3D reconstruction safed tons of money for the production of Ghost Rider. In fact the technology is rated to be more efficient, then stereoscopic filming. The bockbuster was released in February 2012.
September 27th to 29th 2011

FCK Back in Bundesliga
We had the chance to take full spherical images in the Fritz-Walter-Stadium at the Betzenberg when the 1.FC Kaiserslautern - a famous german football club - went back to first league.
This shows the capabilities of the Civetta to also shoot high res images from scenes with many people.

Crossmedia Imaging Symposion 2010
The Cross Media Imaging Symposium 2010 organized by "Arbeitskreis digitale Fotografie" was a complete success for the approx. 200 participants. The Civetta 360°capturing technology was presented in the context “interactive panoramic photography” on the basis of visualisations and 3D reconstruction. In addition to “live captures” during the lecture were also full spherical images taken in the outdoor area of the old coal-mine Essen. Some examples of the results are available in our gallery.
Weiss Viewer now multilingual
The WeissViewer is now available in a new design and in German, English and Chinese. Thanks to its load on demand technology that doesn´t buckle even under HDR images with 100 Mpixel the viewer is already the favorite of the user.
Here you will find more information and the download link.
Continous .exr workflow
The automatic Civetta editing software was changed to .exr.workflow, because .exr in the meantime has prevailed as standard in the area of 3D. By using .exr format the file sizes can in comparison to .tiff files be reduced by 25 % without loss. The 100 Mpixel files with a color depth of 96Bit RGB have depending on the motif an average size of 280 MB.
Award „Pioniergeist 2009“
At the Pioniergeist competition in 2009 - "your concept, our founder award" – was the concept of "3D vehicle documentation" of the Weiss AG awarded with a main prize.

Visualisation Deutsche Reihenhaus AG
To develop an optimal marketing tool for their residential estates the company “Deutsche Reihenhaus AG” has announced a competition. The starting point was the documentation of the entire grounds and three show houses of the residential complex "Im Reisserfeld”. On the basis of these images and with the help of the Civetta 3D measurement has been created the entire grounds as 3D model with realistic textures. This model was connected with virtual 360° tours through three show houses to an interactive accessible overall complex.
Public Security Exhibition
On the PSE (Public Security Exhibition) we introduced the Civetta capturing technology together with 360° Tactical VR (www.360tacticalVR.com) to a distinguished international audience. The fair has been held since 8 years in different locations worldwide and is initiated by Defence Manufacturers Association (DMA) (www.the-dma.org.uk) and the Association of Police and Public Security Suppliers (APPSS) (www.appss.org.uk). The fair has the aim to introduce new technologies in the area of the public safety to a distinguished international audience.
The Weiss AG exhibited in August 2009 at the first time for a distinguished international audience at the SIGGRAPH 2009, which was held in the New Orleans Convention Center. We were very delighted at the overwhelmingly positive acknowledgement and the keen interest to our Civetta.
The Civetta was presented at the FMX 2009 in Stuttgart.
During the presentation a 100 Mpixel HDR image was generated within 40 seconds by video illumination.
The fully automated generated result has been in size and dynamic compressed for the display via the web.
At the Nanjing University of fine arts took place a three day workshop about the topic “Computer Generated Imagery (CGI)”.
At this occasion the complete workflow - starting with the capture of the fully spherical HDR photographic survey and backplanes on-site, through the preparation of the 3D models to the textures – was created by the teaching stuff of the university and external participants from graphic design agencies who work in the field of automobile visualisation.
An oil drilling training platform in Montrose (Scotland) has been documented to demonstrate the working speed as well as the image and measurement quality of the Civetta in documentation of larger properties.
As a result, it has been created, automated and computed 80 calibrated fully spherical HDR photographic surveys within 150 minutes. Directly after this the fully spherical HDR photographic surveys were visual connected with each other.
Because of the high dynamic range and high sensitivity could be achieved excellent results - especially with regard to the measurement - and all this without any additional lightning.
Move in the new Premises
The new premises were occupied in the Merkurstraße on 3th November .2008. At the left of the picture you see our drive-through hall for the 3D capture station for vehicles.
