3D Consortium study session organized by the Technical Sub-committee
(Venue: Fun Theater in Headquarters Mirai-Kenkyusho of NAMCO BANDAI Games, Higashi-Shinagawa)
June 9, 2008

The first 3D Consortium Study Session this year was organized by the Technical Sub-committee at the Fun Theater in Headquarters Mirai-Kenkyusho of NAMCO BANDAI Games on June 9, 2008.
The theme was "Trends toward standardization of 3D displays and the latest trends of displays".
Recently, interest in 3D displays through the use of glasses has accelerated by popularization of 3D movies in the movie industry and the start of 3D broadcasting by BS11. In accordance with this background, this study session was focused on the latest movements toward standardization of 3D displays which support the popularization of 3D displays and the latest trends of displays. Concerning standardization, as there were important movements in terms of standardization of digital camera formats by CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) and standardization of 3D measurement by ISO, we invited experts who are at the forefront of each field as lecturers to explain about the current situation.
Concerning the activities by the 3D Stereoscopic Brain Training WG (working group) in the 3D Consortium which has been aggressively meeting since last year, progress reports were made on the outline of its proposal to the Japanese government.
There were 41 members at the study session for a total of 74 people attending.

"Trends of international standardization by ISO concerning 3D displays"

Group Leader, Multimodal Integration Research Group, Institute for Human Science and Biomedical Engineering, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology
Mr. Hiroyasu Ujike

<Outline of lecture>
According to advancements in display technologies, large, high-resolution displays and 3D displays have been developed which have led to an unprecedented expansion in the use of video. On the other hand, concerns have been raised about motion sickness and visual fatigue caused by 3D images. In the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Workshop Agreement 3 (IWA3:2005) regarding image safety to reduce undesirable biomedical effects was issued and international standardization which covers limited types of 3D displays is proceeding. This lecture explained about the latest trends for this standardization.
"Draft proposal for standardization of stereoscopic still image format by CIPA"

Hachioji Office, External Affairs Division, Olympus Imaging Corp.
Mr. Hideaki Yoshida

<Outline of lecture>
A draft proposal for standardization has been disclosed on the website of CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) called the "Stereo Still Image Format for Digital Cameras" which will be issued soon. The outline of the draft was introduced from the standpoint of one of the proposers (joint proposal by four companies) of this format in CIPA.
"The appeal of 3D and trends of high definition displays
* Exhibition with demonstrations

Senior Vice President, ASUNA Corp.
Mr. Michiyuki Kawano

<Outline of lecture>
(1) Background and challenges for realization of high definition 3D broadcasting
(2) Experience of a real-time high-definition concert
(3)The appeal of 3D and expectations for further development

* Exhibition with demonstrations:
"Vertical-type 3D display (46 inch)", contents "Konchu (insects) Walk"

"Production technology for digital contents '3D stereoscopic' and its past and future"

Assistant of President, P-7 Company, Namco Bandai Games Inc.
Mr. Atsushi Miyazawa

<Outline of lecture>
Since last year, the future of new digital contents, "3D stereoscopic", has attracted more attention as represented by the daily introduction of the appeal of 3D images by a BS digital broadcasting station. In this lecture, visions of the future of 3D images in the amusement industry from the standpoint of the game business were presented based on consideration of its past.
"Progress report about the activities by the '3D Stereoscopic Brain Training WG' in the 3D Consortium"

Vice Leader of the 3D Stereoscopic Brain Training WG, Sharp Corp.
Mr. Ryuji Kitaura
