All stereographers known that to shoot in 3D, you need a (very) bright set. Sometimes, the power suppy is not strong enough to answer the DOP needs. That is why Photon Beard introduces its new revolutionary light source based on a new RF-activated plasma technology. With a20,000 hours life and 14,000 Lumens output for a power drain of 273 Watts, it is equivalent to a Tungsten Fresnel lasting 1,000 hours and draining 2,000 Watts.
Masterimage has revealed a glasses-free 3D tablet reference design that uses Masterimage's cell-matrix parallax barrier technology. This design allows users to view images in both portrait and landscape modes in both 2D and 3D and it can work with several types of display technology including TFT, OLED and even plasma.
The ISU World Congress will take place on 17-23 August 2011 in Egmond aan Zee (The Netherlands). StereoscopyNews and many others are members of the ISU (International Stereoscopic Union). The ISU is a club of individual 3D enthusiasts as well as a club of stereo clubs. The ISU's members currently number more than 900 and come from 38 countries world-wide. We hope to meet you there !
Stereoscopic 3D TV sales increased over 100% in the last three months, reaching close to 4% of the total market (in the US). 3.2 million 3D TVs were sold in 2010, and DisplaySearch predict fast growth, up to 18 million in 2011 and more than 90 million units in 2014.
The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the greatest motorcycle road race in the world, the ultimate challenge for rider and machine. The "TT3D : Closer To The Edge" documentary film’s shot mostly in ‘proper’ 3D, which brings your face millimetres from the scorching tarmac and makes every race – and crash – feel blisteringly tense. Filming was done during the TT2010 with DSLRs, REDs on P+S Freestyle rigs,as well as from some 3D conversions from broadcast rushes. Stereographer: Chris Parks.
