SMPTE Fall Conference Focuses on 3D
TV and movie engineers will get a big dose of 3D next week in Hollywood. The
fall conference of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers will
feature multiple 3D session and discussions, including the opener sponsored by
Disney and featuring Rob Engle from Sony Pictures Imageworks.
Dolby Labs, Fox Network, DTS, and RealD will be on hand with 3D input. Stereoscopic
production techniques and 3D distribution will be covered. One technical
session will cover the multiview 3D technology required to support glasses-free
displays and viewing.
SMPTE also announced today that Warner Bros. will sponsor a special reception
and screening at its studio of Martin Scorsese’s restoration of Michael Powell
and Emeric Pressburger’s “The Red Shoes,” from 1948, on Oct. 28 for those
attending the conference.
The event takes place Oct. 27-29 at the Hollywood Renaissance hotel in
Hollywood. The program schedule is available on the SMPTE Web site.
