Autolycus and Kaidan have announced a new Web site geared toward helping users create 3D digital videos, the SpinImage DV Web site. In conjunction with the site launch, they have also announced their first product, the SpinImage DV Imaging Kit. The kit includes a turntable and software to allow users to easily take 3D movies and convert them into QuickTime format for publication on the Web. According to Kaidan:

Kaidan Incorporated and the Autolycus Corporation have announced today the launch of their new joint web site, SpinImageDV.com and the release of their first joint product, the SpinImage DV Object Imaging Kit. This kit allows anyone to easily and affordably create interactive 3-D object movies of products, toys or collectibles weighing up to twenty pounds.

The SpinImage DV Object Imaging Kit consists of a Kaidan PiXi-M motorized turntable and Autolycus SpinImage DV software. When used with a DV FireWire-enabled camcorder, users can create 3-D object movies in a matter of minutes. The process is simple. The user places the object of interest on the motorized PiXi-M turntable. The digital video of the spinning object is sent to the computer (Macintosh or Windows) where the SpinImage DV software converts the video stream into an object movie thatis ready to be transferred to a Web site or eBay auction. The user can choose from either the SpinImage format (HTML-based) or a QuickTime VR format.

The SpinImage DV Imaging Kit is available for US$399.95. You can find more information at the SpinImage DV Web site.
