Watch Online Presentations From the SD&A 3D Technology Conference

April 18th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Stereo 3D Events


Many of the presentations shown during the Stereoscopic Displays and Applications 2012 (SD&A) conference are now available online for free viewing on the conference’s website for anyone interested. So if you did not manage to visit the conference, or if you went there, but could not get to attend all presentations that you might’ve been interested in or just to get a reminder of what you’ve already seen, now is your chance to get to watch them. The 23rd annual Stereoscopic Displays and Applications (SD&A) conference was held 23-25 January 2012 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel. The SD&A conference is held annually as part of the Electronic Imaging Symposium organized by IS&T and SPIE, the 24th annual SD&A conference will be held February 2013 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel.


Presentations available online for free viewing include:

There are a lot of stereo 3D topics covered in the conference, so you are very likely to find at least a few that might be of interest for you personally, it doesn’t matter if you are a stereo 3D gamer, 3D videographer, work with 3D hardware or just interested in expanding your knowledge about stereoscopic 3D technology. For example the embedded video above is for the “Stereoscopic 3D video games and their effects on engagement” presentation by Andrew Hogue from the University of Ontario Institute Of Technology.

Stereo 3D Not a Big Focus at the Game Developers Conference 2012

March 6th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Stereo 3D Events


This year’s Game Developers Conference 2012 currently held in San Francisco (USA) is apparently not focusing that much on stereoscopic 3D technology as the stereo 3D gamers might expect. The GDC is an annual event where game developers and other companies involved in the game industry meet to share useful information, show and discuss the future trends, talk about the positive and negative experience they’ve had etc. The event consists of multiple lectures, panels, tutorials and round-table discussions on a comprehensive selection of game development topics lead by leading industry experts as well as a showcase for the latest in gaming technology of course. Looking over at the dedicated information pages about the GDC 2012 presence of AMD and Nvidia it seems that both companies are not focusing much on stereo 3D technology. For AMD the focus is mostly about their latest generation of GPUs, the new Radeon HD 7000 series and for Nvidia the focus this year seems to be mobile gaming and Tegra 3. And looking over at the full GDC 2012 schedule it seems that Sony is going to be talking the most about stereoscopic 3D technology in games this year, so if you are interested you might want to check out their sessions “Stereoscopic Rendering and Design for Consoles” and “Stereography: The Art of 3D”.

Sixth Edition of the Dimension 3 Forum, 13 – 15 June in France

February 25th, 2012 · No Comments · Stereo 3D Events


The international forum Dimension 3 will gather professionals and experts from around the world, in order to present the state of the art in equipment and applications in the industry of new images, from their creation to their screening, of course covering stereo 3D technology as well. The Dimension 3 forum will be covering multiple technologies such as: Stereo 3D filming, Broadcasting, Projection, Conversion, Augmented Reality, Special Effects, Animation, Digital Cinema, No-glasses 3D Screens, Ultra High Definition, Lenticular images, 3D printing and others.

Dimension 3 is a must-attend event for all European professionals whose development strategy includes the new dimensions of images and for its sixth edition, held from June 13 to 15, 2012, Dimension 3 will offers a series of conferences, workshops, a content marketplace, a recruitment area for image creators, and a film festival, over the course of three days. Dimension 3 is held right outside Paris, at the Dock Pullman in La Plaine Saint-Denis in France.
