The SD&A conference demonstration session always provides a rich selection of stereoscopic technologies to see and this year was no different.
[D1] Panorama of the Demonstration session.

[PR3] The prize for the best demonstration at the SD&A demonstration session was awarded to Hirotsugu Yamamoto, Hiroki Bando, and Shiro Suyama, of the University of Tokushima, for "Design of cross-mirror array to form floating 3D LED signs."
This year Terry Wilson was back again at SD&A to show a wonderful collection of 3D phantograms.
