SID Display Week 3D Special Topic in Vancouver
After Boston last year, the SID Display Week is back but this time it will be in Vancouver, Canada from May 19 to 23, 2013 with a lot of talks about 3D displays (stereoscopic, holographic,...). Many topics are covered such as OLED and interactivity, but we are more interested in the 3D docus:
The 3D special topic will focus on display technologies for enabling depth perception in viewers, applications for 3D displays, 3D content generation, measurement and characterization of 3D systems, and their human factors. For those coming to Display Week 2013 to learn all about this emerging technology and how it will shape of the displays of the future, the large list of activities visible here under is intended to guide you through the Display Week 3D Topic.
