Autostereoscopic Displays: State of the Art and the Way ForwardThursday, 28 April 2011
The "glasses versus no glasses" debate is on-going, especially when it comes to 3D in the home. A solid understanding of autostereoscopic displays can help understand the challenges associated with 3D without glasses. During this SMPTE PDA Now educational webcast, Gregg Favalora, of Optics for Hire, will discuss autostereoscopic displays including theory of operation for various types (including spatially-multiplexed, volumetric, holographic / quasi-holographic displays, and more recent varieties). Mr. Favalora will also share his opinions on the fundamental requirements of a good autostereo display and what technologies might enable an engineer to develop display systems that meet those requirements.
When & Where
For the past 100 years, the people of the Society of Motion Pictures and Television Engineers (SMPTE, pronounced “simp-tee”) have sorted out the details of many significant advances in entertainment technology, from the introduction of “talkies” and color television to HD and UHD (4K, 8K) TV. Since its founding in 1916, the Society has earned an Oscar® and multiple Emmy® Awards for its work in advancing moving-imagery education and engineering across the communications, technology, media, and entertainment industries. The Society has developed thousands of standards, recommended practices, and engineering guidelines, more than 800 of which are currently in force.
SMPTE’s global membership today includes 7,000 members, who are motion-imaging executives, engineers, creative and technology professionals, researchers, scientists, educators, and students. A partnership with the Hollywood Professional Association (HPA®) connects SMPTE and its membership with the professional community of businesses and individuals who provide the expertise, support, tools, and infrastructure for the creation and finishing of motion pictures, television programs, commercials, digital media, and other dynamic media content. Information on joining SMPTE is available at www.smpte.org/join.
