Out thanks to KUSA for hosting the seminar in their training facility.


In just a few short weeks, SMPTE will host an unprecedented gathering: the International Conference on Stereoscopic 3D for Media and Entertainment on 13- 14 July in New York Cityís Time Square.

It is the first and only scientific event focused solely on the critical, next-generation technologies required for widespread and sustained 3D adoption. And it is a perfect example of the relevance of SMPTE as motion-imaging crosses industries and becomes more pervasive.

There have been many 3D events this year covering current technologies. What differentiates this SMPTE event is that it focuses on next-generation research thatís already underway and critical for the long-term success of 3D. More than two dozen papers will be presented over two days covering 3D acquisition, distribution, transmission, and display; you can read their abstracts at www.smpte.org/events/3d_conference/.
