Multiple-Emmy-award-winning SMPTE Fellow and lead blogger at SchubinCafe.com Mark Schubin will keynote the Digital Cinema Summit “3D: Cinema and Home” on Saturday, April 10, as part of the NAB 2010 conference program. The session is co-produced by NAB, SMPTE, the Entertainment Technology Center at USC, and the European Broadcasting Union. The Saturday session, the first of the two-day “3D: Cinema and Home” session is “Production, Post-production, and the Impact of the Consumer Experience.”
The Summit will start by providing a thorough understanding of how the human brain perceives stereo images. From there, leading directors, producers, and technologists will review the entire 3D path from acquisition, through post production, distribution and display in Cinema and in the home. Panelists will review both techniques and lessons learned with real equipment and full visual demonstrations. The audience will participate in 3D perceptual viewing and will be able to discover the limitations of their own visual systems.
Leading engineers will explain and demonstrate the various techniques used for packaging and distributing compressed 3D images for satellite, over-the-air, IP download, and packaged media, such as Blu-ray Disc. A comprehensive review of display technologies will reveal the benefits and shortcomings of today’s stereoscopic displays, and provide a glimpse into the R&D labs now inventing the future of stereoscopic display.
In short, the 2010 Summit will educate and inform on all aspect of 3D, allowing attendees to prepare their companies and production lines for handling this emerging technology.
