About this event

The speaker will provide a look at the history of 3D TV and then look at the fundamentals of Stereoscopy and how it is applied first to film and now to TV. The speaker will then discuss early experiments to make a practical display and cameras showing side-by-side and mirror rig versions.

Displays are looked at, showing plasma and LCD displays, with both active and passive displays, with a quick glance at auto-stereoscopic (i.e. without glasses) displays and then a review of the transmission problems.

Finally a mention of the NHK UHDTV system, used at the London Olympic Games, and what this means for the future. A demonstration is then given using two projector rigs with polarised glasses. Glasses are provided but must be returned after the lecture.
