The 2D to 3D conversion company BSAT Labs has hired Indian VFX facility Chennai. The move gives BSAT Labs access to more than 400 seats to do the majority of the labor-intensive work that is involved in the 3D conversion process. “The number of 3D box office hits in 2009 and many more 3D releases coming to theaters this year is proof that 3D is here to stay ” says Yusuf Broachwala president of BSAT Labs. “Several forums such as SMPTE CEA and BDA are doing a great job and working very hard to bring 3D to the home and pushing for Blu-Ray standardization. Once standardized we will see a great volume of conversion work for legacy titles and commercials.” “Our non proprietary method allows us to easily expand our staff as required by the project learning curves are short and compositors can become productive in a matter of days ” Broachwala says. BSAT Labs launched its 2D to 3D conversion last May and has since tested for several studios. BSAT Labs
