BigStage.com was a free and paid avatar creation service and the online platform for instantly expressing the ‘Digital You’ through a diverse array of online media, networks and communities.
Using three snapshots taken with a standard digital camera or a single snapshot taken from our high end Big Stage camera, Big Stage maps the detailed contours of your face to create your life-like 3-D replica, called an @ctor(TM) in seconds.
Big Stage is ushering in a new era of digital media engagement by making it possible to become a part of the medium itself. The company is collaborating with studios, portals, social networks, advertising agencies and established brands to secure a continuing selection of engaging Big Stage-Enabled (BSE) content and experiences.
Big Stage’s 3-D capture technology stems from advanced stereo reconstruction technology funded by multiple government grants, including the CIA, as part of a nine-year cumulative research project at the University of Southern California (USC).
Big Stage was acquired in 2011 by Image Metrics (IMGX).
