Invited Keynote Speaker

SESSION 6 .... Thurs. 1:30 to 2:20 pm
Chair: Scott S. Fisher, Telepresence Research, Inc.

  • The Deep Image: 3D in Art and Science, Mr. Ray Zone.
Ray has been doing presentations on (and with) stereo images for many years and has a great collection of stereo videos and slides to show. He's also well known for his 3d comic book series. We think he'll be a big hit with the 3d crowd.

(Please note: Due to circumstances beyond our control, the keynote previously announced (Gordon Harris, IMAX corporation) has been cancelled.)
