DSR presents the DSR imaging system at America’s largest research and education institution, the Smithsonian Institution
Contribution to the “The Long Conversation” event with leading artists and scientists discussing the topic of “Solving the Future”
New York City – 12/12/2017 – DSR was invited on December 1 to the Smithsonian “The Long Conversation” event in the newly restored Arts & Industries Building in Washington. The Smithsonian, which was established in 1846 by a United States Congress act, is the largest research and education institution in the United States. With 19 museums and galleries as well as the national zoo, the Smithsonian is the largest museum complex in the world. The “Spirit of St. Louis”, among others, was exhibited in the Arts & Industries Building after the first Atlantic crossing. To honor the mission “of increasing and disseminating knowledge”, the Smithsonian is also hosting events such as the “Long Conversation”, where 25 leading figures from the world of art and science discuss the challenges of the future on stage. The event is enriched by select innovations which are intended to not only give visitors an outlook on the solutions of tomorrow, but also on digital processing and the dissemination of visual content. For this reason, Durst Sebring Revolution was invited to exhibit its DSR Automatic E camera system. The DSR systems generate breathtaking video, VR and AR content through patented camera systems. The unique recording technology performs many tasks which would otherwise only be possible through post-production or special effects. Therefore, image content can be used directly in different formats and for various applications. Using DSR Automatica E as an example, visitors were able to share their multi-dimensional recordings directly on their social channels.
“We are completely humbled that we were able to present our new imaging division in such a high-grade environment,” said Christoph Gamper, CEO of the Durst Group. “It’s like an accolade for us, and proof that the innovation strength of Durst is being heard around the world. As the leading figures from the art and science world already proclaimed at the beginning of the event, with the DSR Automatica, we are creating an optimistic environment and delivering solutions for the future.”

The DSR Approach
Extending the original motion picture capture technique, developed in 1872. This time-tested approach still offers many advantages in the digital age. The DSR systems produce breathtaking video, VR, and AR content, through photographic techniques. The systems are based on still image capture, and many initial results are in the form of Raw, High Bit still image captures.
Durst Sebring’s patented camera control systems and unique capture techniques allow DSR systems to do many tasks in-camera, minimizing post-processing and special effects work; allowing distribution of many types of capture immediately, as it is shot. This opens new possibilities for content uses, and can lower costs for many types of content.
