This year's Keynote presentation was presented by Vince Pace from Pace Technologies (Sun Valley, California). Vince's presentation titled "TITANIC in 3D HDTV" discussed the work that has gone into the filming of the new 3D film "Ghost of the Abyss" that is expected to be released in IMAX 3D theatres this year. [Pictured (from left to right): Lenny Lipton, John Rupkalvis, Emory Kristof and Vince Pace]. Please refer to the conference proceedings preface for more information on the keynote.

Following Vince's presentation, Emory Kristof (National Geographic Society) introduced the 3D Video footage he filmed at the Titanic wreck site back in 1991. The footage was played back from dual Betacam SP decks on the conference's large rear-screen 3D video projection system.
