"T I T A N I C in 3D HDTV",
Vince Pace, Pace Technologies

Academy Award winning Director James Cameron returned to the famous wreck of the RMS Titanic in August of 2001 to produce the 3D IMAX film, "Ghost of the Abyss." Rather than using the large and expensive 70mm IMAX 3D camera system, he brought together a world-class team from SONY, Panavision, Pace Engineering, and his brother's company, Dark Matter, in order to solve the numerous technical problems in imaging the wreckage in the new High Definition 24P digital video format under 12,500 feet of water. When edited, the stereoscopic HD video will be slow-scan laser transferred to IMAX 70mm motion picture film for release. Vince was a member of that team and will elaborate on the many technical pitfalls involved in going to the abyss and coming back with the fantastic images that will put IMAX audiences on the decks of Titanic.
