Sapete che pare proprio abbiano utilizzato una tecnologia olografica utilizzando ben 35 telecamere contemporaneamente !

Ecco quanto dicono in inglese:

CNN's holographic election coverage is fancy pantsy, but how did they manage to send 3D 360 degree footage of virtual correspondent Jessica Yellin from Chicago all the way to the station's election center in NY? As Arthur C. Clarke says, Magic. A magic made possible from technology Vizrt and SportVu with the help of forty-four HD cameras and twenty computers. Here are the details.

On the subject's side:
Dalla parte del soggetto:
• 35 HD cameras pointed at the subject in a ring
35 Telecamere HD puntate sul soggetto all'interno di un cerchio.

• Different cameras shoot at different angles (like the matrix), to transmit the entire body image
Le differenti telecamere riprendono da angolazioni differenti (come una matrice), e trasmettono l'intera immagine del corpo

• The cameras are hooked up to the cameras in home base in NY, synchronizing the angles so perspective is right
Le telecamere sono agganciate a quelle della sede centrale di NY, sincronizzando le angolazioni in maniera tale da avere la giusta prospettiva

• The system is set up in trailers outside Obama and McCain HQ
Il sistema è impostato in modalità “inseguimento” su Obama e McCain.

• Not only is it mechanical tracking via camera communication, there's infrared as well
Non solo c'è un sistema meccanico di inseguimento tramite le comunicazioni delle telecamere ma anche un sistema di inseguimento tramite infrarosso

• Correspondents see a 37-inch plasma where the return feed of the combined images are fed back to them. Useful for a misplaced hair or an unseemly boogar
I corrispondenti vedono un plasma da 37 pollici che restituisce le immagini combinate in modo tale da avere un riscontro. Utile per capelli fuori posto o situazioni sconvenienti

• Twenty “computers” are crunching this data in order to make it usable
20 computer elaborano questi dati in modo da finalizzarli

On the HQ side:
Dalla parte della sede centrale

• Only used on two out of 40-something total camera feeds that CNN has
Hanno utilizzato solo 2 delle quasi 40 telecamere di riscontro che ha a disposizione la CNN

• The delay is either minimal, or we've gotten used to satellite delay that we don't even notice now
Il ritardo è davvero minimo oppure hanno utilizzato un ritardo da satellite così che non ce ne accorgiamo nemmeno

• An array of computers takes the crunched info feed from the subject's side in order to mesh it with the video from Wolf's side.
Una serie di computer prendono i dati di ritorno dalla parte dei soggetti in modo tale da mescolarli con il video dal lato di Wolf.

• Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the images are actually “projected” onto the floor of the CNN studio so that Wolf can actually talk to the person, you know, in a face to face. So it's not quite Star Wars just yet. Only after computers merge the video feeds together do you get a coherent hologram + person scenario
Sfortunatamente non sembra essere un immagine proiettata sul pavimento dello studio del CNN così che Wolf possa davvero parlare alla persona. Diciamo che non è ancora come in Star Wars. Solo dopo che i computer mescolano i ritorni dei video insieme ottieni un ologramma coerente + lo scenario.


Ecco l'articolo uscito sul The Guardian:

I'm going out on a limb here, I realise, but it seems highly likely that this might actually be the best thing ever:

…Instead of the split screen or window TV viewers might typically see during live remote interviews [on election night], the Obama spokesperson will be projected as a three-dimensional hologram, making it appear as if he or she is in the Manhattan studio with [Wolf] Blitzer. The network plans to conduct similar holographic interviews with representatives from the McCain campaign in Phoenix.

Yes indeed: CNN plans to have campaign representatives filmed by 44 different cameras in Chicago and Arizona, then feed the data through 20 computers to result in a 360-degree image of the interviewee, there in the New York studio with Wolf Blitzer. CNN senior vice-president David Bohrman “says the network can project two different views from each city so Blitzer can appear to be in the studio with two holograms.” This is, of course, almost indescribably brilliant; there's no word yet on whether Wolf Blitzer has been updated with a new voice chip to enable him to speak in a variety of pitches instead of a monotone, but CNN surely has its best minds on the matter. (PBS, meanwhile, are rumoured to be preparing to roll out a new gizmo, the “video screen”, so that Jim Lehrer doesn't have to rely entirely on paper flipcharts. I'll believe it when I see it.)

If you're inclined to think CNN's plan at all absurd, don't forget that Sky News is currently broadcasting from a villa in Biscayne Bay, Florida, which it's calling “The White House” — that's a joke, you see, because the White House in Washington is where the president lives. On election night, 150 guests will gather round the swimming pool there to discuss the results, and where a 54-foot yacht is being used to interview “floating voters”, even though this is not a term anybody uses in the United States, thereby making a terrible pun worse.
