Organization of a briefing on activities of new working groups (WGs) and a study session hosted by the Technical Sub-committee
(SGI Hall, Ebisu)
April 20, 2007

The first Study Session in 2007 was organized at the SGI Hall in the Yebisu Garden Place Tower on April 20.

After a briefing on activity policies of WGs for this year, a study session organized by the Technical Sub-committee was held at the same venue.

The theme of this study session was "Trends of the 3D displays and 2D/3D conversion technologies."
Focusing on "hardware and software for 3D displays," Mr. Fumio Okano (NHK Science & Technical Research Laboratories), Mr. Kazuo Kimura (NTT Cyber Communications Laboratory Group), Mr. Kuniaki Izumi (InterScience Corporation) and Mr. Kunio Yamada (Victor Company of Japan) provided lectures. Victor Company of Japan organized an exhibition with demonstrations.
There were 33 members at the study session for a total of 55 people attending.

"Application of technologies for integral stereoscopic TV and viewers"

Senior Scientist Lead, NHK Science and Technical Research Laboratories
Mr. Fumio Okano

* Lecture summary :
Introduction of a prototype stereoscopic TV developed by the NHK Science & Technical Research Laboratories. This system uses ultra-high resolution images by using 2,000 scanning lines for processes from video-recording to display. The characteristics of this system are that moving images can be video-recorded and displayed real-time and that it is a full parallax system. Its lens alley for video-recording consists of GRIN (Gradient Index) lenses. The lecturer described that this technology can be applied for viewers which allow them to directly observe stereoscopic images.

"3D displays based on optical illusions called "Depth Fused 3D (DFD)'"

Senior Research Engineer, High-Reality Systems Group, Visual Media Communication Project, NTT Cyber Space Laboratories
Mr. Kazuo Kimura

* Lecture summary :

Explanation of "3D displays based on optical illusions called "Depth Fused 3D (DFD)'" which has been recently discovered. DFD refers to a phenomenon which creates any depth between two plates by displaying ordinary images on two transparent flat surfaces which are overlapped with each other and by changing the luminance ratio of the images displayed on the two plates. In this lecture, he explained about the basic system of DFD displays, a thin DFD display system by using LC displays and evaluation of visual fatigue of the thin DFD display and projection-type DFD displays for larger screens.

"Trends and challenges of 2D/3D conversion technologies"

President, InterScience Corporation
Mr. Kuniaki Izumi

* Lecture summary :
There are two types of 2D/3D conversion which are real-time conversion and off-line conversion. The lecturer introduced typical case examples for each type, promising business models for providing contents for 3D broadcasting and legal issues concerning these models.

"JVC's original 2D/3D conversion technologies which realized real-time conversion of high definition signals"
* Exhibition with demonstrations

Chief Engineer, New Image System Unit, Core Technology Development Center, Technology Development Division,, Victor Company of Japan

Mr. Kunio Yamada

* Lecture summary :
2D/3D conversion technologies, a brief introduction of JVC's original 2D/3D conversion technologies which realized real-time conversion of high definition signals by using depth recognition based on curved surfaces and colors, and points to be noted for using 2D/3D conversion technologies and prospects of the technologies in the future.
