Preservation and exhibition of historical 3D movies   [9011-83]

Jeff Joseph, Producer, World 3D Film Expo (United States)


Abstract: 3D movies have a long history dating as far back as 1915. Jeff will provide an overview and preservation status of the 1950's "Golden Age" 3D movies plus several "pre Golden Age" 3D content examples. Through Jeff's keen interest in early 3D movies and all forms of early film content, he has been instrumental in locating, restoring, preserving and exhibiting many early 3D film titles. Jeff has many interesting and unusual stories to tell of how he helped locate and recover several early 3D movies. The onward march of time, and the ever faster changes in technology now present many challenges for the preservation of early 3D film content, but also offer new opportunities. The rapid replacement of 35mm film projection with digital projection is a key part of this change. Jeff will reflect on the three 3D Movie Expos that he has run in Hollywood which have allowed the public to experience these historical 3D movies once again.


Author Biography: Jeff Joseph was founder and owner of SabuCat Productions which maintained a renowned library of nearly 60,000 trailers, in addition to tens of thousands of production shorts, screen tests, commercials, stock footage and newsreels, as well as the world's largest private archive of vintage 3D features and shorts. In 2009 the SabuCat collection was purchased by the Packard Foundation and is on deposit at the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences' Film Archive and the UCLA Film & Television Archive. In 2003 Jeff presented the first World 3D Film Expo at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, followed by sequels in 2006 and 2013. He is currently working with the UCLA Film and Television Archive on the restoration of the Hal Roach/Laurel and Hardy library.

"Using fMRI To Reverse Engineer the Human Visual System" [9011-301]
Jack L. Gallant, Univ. of California, Berkeley (United States)

Abstract: The human brain is the most sophisticated image processing system known, capable of impressive feats of recognition and discrimination under challenging natural conditions. Reverse-engineering the brain might enable us to design artificial systems with the same capabilities. My laboratory uses a data-driven system identification approach to tackle this reverse-engineering problem. Our approach consists of four broad stages. First, we use functional MRI to measure brain activity while people watch movies. We divide these data into two parts, one use to fit models and one for testing model predictions. Second, we use a system identification framework based on multiple linearizing feature spaces to model activity measured at each point in the brain. Third, we inspect the most accurate models to understand how the brain represents structural and semantic information in the movies. Finally, we use the estimated models to decode brain activity, reconstructing the structural and semantic content in the movies. This framework could form the basis of practical new brain reading technologies, and can inform development of biologically-inspired computer vision systems. more...

Compressive displays: combining optical fabrication, computational processing, and perceptual tricks to build the displays of the future

Gordon Wetzstein, MIT Media Lab. (United States) [9011-81]


In this talk, we explore modern approaches to glasses-free 3D display using compressive light field displays. In contrast to conventional technology, compressive displays aim for a joint-design of optics, electronics, and computational processing that together exploit compressibility of the presented data. For instance, multiview images or light fields show the same 3D scene from different perspectives - all these images are very similar and therefore compressible. By combining displays that use multilayer architectures or directional backlighting combined with optimal light field factorizations, limitations of existing devices, for instance resolution, depth of field, and field of view, can be overcome. In addition to light field display, we will discuss approaches to compressive super-resolution image display and compressive high dynamic range display. As with compressive light field displays, these technologies rely on multiplexing image content in time such that the visual system of a human observer combines presented patterns into a consistent 3D, high-resolution, or high-contrast image. With the invention of integral imaging and parallax barriers in the beginning of the 20th century, glasses-free 3D displays have become feasible. With rapid advances in optical fabrication, digital processing power, and computational perception, a new generation of display technology is emerging: compressive displays exploring the co-design of optical elements and computational processing while taking particular characteristics of the human visual system into account. We will review these techniques and also give an outlook on next-generation compressive light field camera technology.

"Integrated Imaging: Creating Images from the Tight Integration of Algorithms, Computation, and Sensors"
by Charles A. Bouman, Purdue Univ. (United States) [9011-300]

Abstract: Some people suggest that imaging is a mature field, but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, we are entering into the next phase of innovation in which a convergence of technologies is enabling the creation of an endless variety of imaging systems based on the tight integration of algorithms, computation, and sensor design. This new field, which we call integrated imaging, is evolving out of classical imaging modalities into a wide array of new applications. Integrated imaging systems will drive both scientific exploration and consumer products by blending novel and often counter-intuitive sensor design with algorithms that exploit the availability of enormous quantities of data and computation. This talk presents some examples of state-of-the-art integrated imaging systems based on computed tomography (CT), transmission electron microscopy (STEM), synchrotron beam imaging, optical sensing, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). For each of these examples, we also explore their use and potential impact in applications ranging from healthcare to jet engine design. We conclude with some speculation on where integrated imaging might be going; where it might have greatest impact; and what will be the greatest challenges ahead. more...

SD&A Magical Mystery 3D Bus Tour (separate fee payable)
Thurs. 12:30 to 8:00 pm

They Mystery is over and we are ready to reveal details of this brand new feature for SD&A XXV. The SD&A committee have organized a bus tour on Thursday 6th February 2014 from 12:30pm to 8pm to visit two local 3D companies in Silicon Valley – Intuitive Surgical and NVIDIA – followed by dinner at a popular tech hangout. Both companies are strong users and supporters of stereoscopic imaging in their products and this is a unique opportunity to visit these two companies.

Intuitive Surgical develops and markets a telerobotic surgery system called 'da Vinci' which uses a stereoscopic display and endoscopic stereoscopic camera as an integral part of the system. The da Vinci system is remarkable in that it optically aligns the stereoscopic image of the robotic manipulators with the operator's two hands which makes the system very intuitive to use - hence the company's name.

NVIDIA has developed stereoscopic imaging technologies for more than 12 years. Their stereoscopic solutions have been a critical component of the success of many 3D imaging systems due to the fundamental and enabling capabilities that NVIDIA graphics cards provide.

Tour Schedule:
12:30pm pickup from Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel, 333 O'Farrell Street
1:00pm pickup from Photonics West Exhibition, Moscone Center, Howard Street.
2:00pm to 4:35pm Visits to Intuitive Surgical and NVIDIA - alternating in two groups
