Each year's Stereoscopic Displays and Applications conference is a perfect opportunity to see a vast collection of stereoscopic displays all in one session and one place. The 2010 conference was no different and there were lots of 3D on show. Here's a quick photo review of the SD&A demonstrations.
 Fujifilm USA (Jim Calverley) demonstrated the Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D products: the W1 digital 3D camera, the V1 3D photo frame viewer, and 3D prints.
 NVIDIA (Dave Cook and Michael McSorley) demonstrated the NVIDIA 3D Vision active shutter glasses paired with four of the new Acer GD235HZ full-HD 24" 3D LCD monitors, including three setup as an ultra-widescreen 3D display. Content included 3D Blu-ray, 3D pictures from the Fuji 3D camera, and the latest PC games in 3D.
 Lightspeed Design (Chris Ward and Bob Mueller) demonstrated their new polarization modulator in operation with a DepthQ HD projector - illustrating new options for full-polarized HD 3D from a single projector.
 SeeFront (Christoph Grossmann) debuted their new lens kit and software to convert a 2D laptop display into a head-tracked autostereoscopic display, and an autostereoscopic desktop monitor SF223.
 ELDIM (Pierre Boher) provided literature on their system for performance characterization of autostereoscopic displays.
 3DTV Solutions (Didier Debons) demonstrated a large autostereoscopic HDTV screen showing qualitative content.
 Polaris Sensor Technologies (Richard Edmondson) demonstrated a flat panel polarized 3D display system with live and digital inputs coupled with a TALON fully operational bomb disposal robot.
 Philips (Rene Klein Gunnewiek) demonstrated their automatic 2D to 3D conversion algorithm on a large screen 3D HDTV.
 Hologlyphics (Walter Funk) demonstrated autostereoscopic content generated in real-time, interacting with sound.
 The Communications Research Centre, Canada (James Tam), demonstrated a user-interface for modifying depth maps intended as a tool for creating special effects in 3D, getting rid of the cardboard-cutout effect, and for 2D to 3D conversion
(Sorry - no picture. Do you have one?)
 The National Research Council of Canada (Eric Paquet) demonstrated a system that can index and retrieve 3D protein structures according to their shape.

 The National Institute of Standards and Technology (Afzal Godil) demonstrated their 3D shape retrieval work, which is based on subspaces of view.
 Durham University (Nick Holliman) showed clips from the 3D movie "Cosmic Origins" and discussed stereoscopic production with delegates.
 Osaka City University (Daisuke Miyazaki) demonstrated a volumetric display system using a roof mirror grid array (RMGA) and a DLP projection engine. The RMGA consists of a two-dimensional array of dihedral corner reflectors and forms a real image at a plane-symmetric position.
 The University of Tsukuba (Hideki Kakeya) demonstrated 3D display system combining multi-view and volumetric solutions, which realize natural 3D vision without convergence-accommodation conflict.
 StereoJet exhibited a selection of full color, high-resolution 3D prints and transparencies -- showing a recent update of the technology. StereoJet remains the only method available for printing of full-color 3D images which can be viewed with polarized 3D glasses.
 21st Century 3D (Jason Goodman) demonstrated a professional stereoscopic camera system using a pair of RED cameras mounted on a mirror-rig designed to overcome the polarization problems normally encountered with mirror-rigs.
 Bernard Mendiburu was on hand to sign copies of his new book, 3D Movie Making: Stereoscopic Digital Cinema from Script to Screen. He also showed an Acer Aspire 5738DG 3D laptop setup with a pair of Microsoft Lifecam 720P webcams connected as a stereo-pair.
There were also several stereoscopic items at the Electronic Imaging Exhibition on the main concourse on Tuesday and Wednesday:
 JVC Professional demonstrated the JVC 46" MicroPol based 3D HDTV.
 3DTV Solutions demonstrated a large screen autostereoscopic display.
 The "Art in Virtual Reality" exhibit (curated by Ben Chang from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago) used a large rear-screen polarized stereoscopic projection system to showcase the virtual reality artworks of a selection of authors. Further details are available from www.bcchang.com/artvr2010/
 Also in the exhibit area was the annual Phantogram Exhibit, organized by Terry Wilson from Terryfic3D.
