The 3D@Home Consortium has published a short guide to all things 3D at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), organized each year by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), that is starting next week (January 10th) in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The guide is available in PDF format and presents you with a short overview of the 3D market with some notable current and future trends, something that might be useful to get you a brief overview. The more interesting part however is the information about companies that are going to be presenting their 3D-related services (and at what booth you can find them) and products or showcasing upcoming stereo 3D technologies, 3D conference programs and meetings and a list of of 3D exhibitors by product type. So do take a look at the PDF guide if you plan to visit the 2012 CES.

The 3D@Home Consortium’s 3D User Experience Technical Summit (3D-UETS) and International 3D Fair is scheduled for September 22-23, 2011 at the Hollywood & Highland Center, Hollywood, California (USA) in conjunction with the 3D Entertainment Summit. The event is tailored to 3D professionals who seek to understand the physiological impact of 3D and how to take that into account when creating 3D for the large or small screen. The conference is intended to be rich with networking opportunities including an industry awards luncheon, and a tour, dinner and networking event at the Sony 3D Technology Center & Sony Pictures Lot.
3D@Home Consortium has been exploring the topic of defining a great 3D User Experience for the past year through ongoing meetings of its members and quarterly workshops. The 3D-UETS is the next in these workshops designed to share information and knowledge with other groups in the 3D eco-system, including: the vision health community, the vision research academic community, and now, the 3D creation and distribution communities. During 3D-UETS, the user experience will be examined from several perspectives, including, signal compression and distribution; specific screen sizes and displays; measurements already conducted; what areas need additional study; the impact of differences in binocular vision; and, how the experience is manipulated and evaluated in post-production.

The 3D@Home Consortium, together with the American Optometric Association is organizing a Clinical Symposium on 3D Vision and Health on March 15th at the SUNY College of Optometry, 33 West 42nd Street in New York. The goal of the symposium is to cover the topic that is generating a lot of controversy lately with the constantly increasing interest in 3D technology, and that is if the stereoscopic 3D displayed on a screen can be bad for your eyes and vision or that is a total myth. There will be specialists in both the technological and the medical field, so it would be good event for anyone interested as an enthusiast or a professional.
The 3D@Home Consortium was formed in 2008 with the mission to speed the commercialization of 3D into homes worldwide and provide the best possible viewing experience by facilitating the development of standards, roadmaps and education for the entire 3D industry – from content, hardware and software providers to consumers. Industry leaders from all segments of the supply chain have joined together to meet the goals, including: 3D content creators, developers and editors, broadcasting and distribution companies, software, hardware and workflow tool manufacturers, standards bodies, and research and educational institutions.
