|You’re Invited to Preview Adobe’s Immersive Technology on Tuesday, February 6
Don’t miss an amazing view into where Adobe is leading the industry on Immersive Technology – Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) on:
Tuesday, February 6
Chris Bobotis, Director of Immersive at Adobe, who oversees the company’s Immersive Media efforts, will be on hand to present.
Chris is the software architect for the SkyBox suite of 360˚ video and cinematic VR tools, which Adobe recently acquired from Chris’ previous company Mettle. Chris co-founded Mettle in 1992 and was Partner & Creative Director. Mettle transformed the nascent 360˚ VR video industry with their SkyBox software plugins for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, providing a dedicated tool set for editing and manipulating 360˚ video and introducing core features and functionality that had previously been missing from the market.
Today, Mettle customers include Facebook, Google, Apple, Samsung, CNN, HBO, New York Times, NASA, and virtually all other professional 360˚ content producers. Chris is an advocate for immersive storytelling, and regular presenter at SIGGRAPH, NAB and IBC conferences. Chris grew up in Montréal, and previously worked as a creative director, art director, illustrator and production manager.
