With 3D production moving into the main stream, the age old battle of side by side vs. beam splitter is possibly more heated than ever.  The side by side configuration has the obvious advantage of looking and operating largely like an ordinary 2D camera.  It is hampered however by limitations in certain capabilities. including control over the 3D effect.  Beam splitters offer full control but are cumbersome and large. Discussions on the topic commonly revolve around questions like the following: If my eyes are 2.5" inches apart, why not just shoot everything with a camera that has an IO of 2.5"? Specifically how do beam splitters technically compare and contrast to a side by side 3D camera? What technologies are on the horizon?

Please join stereoscopic industry pioneer Jason Goodman, CEO, 21st Century 3D and SMPTE PDA Now as we navigate the landscape of 3D cameras.

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
