The Demonstrations

This year's demonstration session was a very successful event - a multitude of stereoscopic displays and systems were on show and a very enthusiastic audience kept the exhibitors on their toes for the full duration of the session.

The following demonstrations were on show:

(Left Image) Three members of the 3D Consortium showed a range of 3D software on Sharp R3D3 laptop computers. Don Pierce (right) from Micoy demonstrated their stereoscopic panorama software on a Sharp RD3D laptop. Jack Yamamoto from Sharp (Japan) demonstrated a Sharp RD3D laptop using a range of different 3D software. (Right Image) Mercury 3D demonstrated their real-time 2D to 3D conversion software on a Sharp RD3D laptop.

The 3D Consortium also showed a poster outlining their activities.

Shojiro Nagata of Intervision demonstrated a parallax barrier based autostereoscopic display and stereo-printings

Charles McLaughlin from the McLaughlin Consulting Group demonstrated the StereoMirror 3D display.

Alan Shulman from for3d demonstrated their real-time 2d to 3d video converter.

National Displays demonstrated a medical stereoscopic display based on two LCD panels and a half mirror.

Justus Ilgner from Aachen University Hospital demonstrated 3D videos and images in support of his paper presentation "Production and evaluation of stereoscopic video presentation in surgical training" on a Sharp RD3D laptop.

Nick Holliman of University of Durham showed a range of stereoscopic images in support of his paper presentation "Mapping perceived depth to regions of interest in stereoscopic images" on a Sharp RD3D laptop.

Dan Huenergardt from Studio Fusion demonstrated a range of stereoscopic art.

StereoGraphics demonstrated their SynthaGram 404 (40" autostereoscopic LCD), SynthaGram 202 (20" autostereoscopic LCD), and SynthaGram 222 (high-resolution 22" autostereoscopic LCD)

Ian Matthew from Sharp Corporation (USA) demonstrated a Sharp RD3D laptop running a Kayaking game in stereoscopic 3D and a small handheld computer with an autostereoscopic display.

The University of Tsukuba demonstrated a camera system for autostereoscopic display using floating real image.

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation Advanced Technology R&D Center demonstrated their autostereoscopic display using a scanning back light. [From left: Akimasa Yuuki and Kyiochiro Oda.]

Takashi Kawai of Waseda University demonstrated an autostereoscopic 3D display and content for a Pachinko gaming machine, and StereoEdit software. Takashi Kawai also won the prize for the best use of stereoscopic display methods during his talk - his prize was a copy of the book 3D Australia.

Carl Tung from VREX and InventQjaya showed a range of information about VREX's stereoscopic technologies and InventQjaya's new R&D facility in Malaysia. [From left: Michael Miller and Carl Tung.]

LightSpace Technologies Inc demonstrated their DepthCube volumetric 3D display.

Andrew Woods of Curtin University of Technology demonstrated an anaglyph 3D phantogram poster.

A large StereoJet stereoscopic panorama of the surface of Mars from the Pathfinder mission from JPL was on display.

Dave Cook from NVIDIA Corporation demonstrated a range of stereoscopic games on the conference big screen running on a PC equipped with an NVIDIA graphics card.

The four poster authors presented their posters.

Three Pentax Optio digital still camera owners were seen congregating (taking 3D pictures). [From left: Michael Brauss, Steve Hines, and Enrique Criado.]

In the Exhibit Hall

There were also two booths in the exhibit hall which contained stereoscopic displays:

Kodak demonstrated their new autostereoscopic display.

The 3D Consortium had a booth which demonstrated the products of some of its member companies.

Both booths were invariably very busy with attendees.

Holography Exhibit

There was also a large holography exhibit held in cooperation with the Practical Holography Conference and the Electronic Imaging Symposium.

An important part of the holography display was a exhibition of the key life works of the late Professor Stephen A. Benton. Included in the collection was the first rainbow hologram (produced in 1968) and an early rainbow hologram called "Rind" which was inspired by M. C. Escher's famous work (shown at right above).

The remainder of the display contained a selection of holographic works by various authors.
The holography display was organised by Steven Smith of MIT.
