Los Angeles, CA (July 17, 2008) ‹ Aguru Images, a
provider of innovative image capture devices, is proud to announce
the launch of the Aguru Dome™ 2 targeting world leading

facilities. The Aguru Dome 2 will be on display in the Aguru
Images Booth (# 347) throughout the SIGGRAPH Conference, August

The Aguru Dome is based on the Light Stage technology originally
developed by Paul Debevec and his group at the USC Institute for
Creative Technologies, who worked closely with Aguru Images
engineers on this latest commercial release of the imaging
solution. The Aguru Dome 2 brings a number of additional workflow
improvements to the previous version, and is the first product of
its kind being made commercially available to facilities
"We've had a fantastic response to the Dome technology which offers unprecedented precision and an enabling solution to a very hard, but very common problem in visual effects and game development‹creating accurate digital doubles," explained Craig Miller, Aguru Images' CEO. "Due to increasing demands to make the technology available worldwide, we packaged the Dome 2 with several improvements in both software and hardware design and focused diligently on our customer's requirements. Offering the Aguru Dome 2 for immediate installation will enable the world's VFX experts to create even more lifelike computer generated characters and objects than ever before, but with a level of automation that most have only dreamed of."
The Aguru Dome 2 is shipping in September of 2008 and will be
supported by technicians based in Los Angeles, CA and in Rockville,
