Report on the 3D Consortium and the Committee for 3D Image Technology Research Joint Conference 2008 in YEBISU
(Venue: SGI Hall, Ebisu)
December 19, 2008

As this year's open event organized by the 3D Consortium, a joint conference was organized on December 19 at the SGI Hall with the Committee for 3D Image Technology Research of the Institute of Image Information and Television Engineers.
The theme was "the latest technologies of 3D displays and human factors".
We invited lecturers who have been active as leaders from basic to application of stereoscopic views, perception research, 3D TV, standardization, and 3D projectors. They gave lectures on topics in a wide variety of fields.
There were 52 companies at the conference for a total of 82 people attending.

"Difference in viewpoints concerning 2D images and 3D images - Review on spatial vision functions"

Principal, DR. Eng., Tokyo Optometric College
Mr. Toyohiko, Hatada

* Outline of lecture
Data from previous reports concerning our spatial vision functions (eyesight, parallax detection, discrepancy between adjustment and convergence, etc.) which determine display conditions required for stereoscopic images were reviewed for consideration of display conditions for spatial reproduction with better quality.
"Perception of realism and its brain mechanism"

Research Manager, Multimodal Communication Group, Universal Media Research Center, National Institute of Information and Communications Technology
Mr. Hiroshi, Ando

* Outline of lecture
This lecture outlined approaches such as psychophysical experiments, neural computation, and fMRI brain activity imaging for establishment of more objective and quantitative measurement evaluation technologies concerning realism we perceive. This lecture also introduced the mechanism in our brain involved in areas such as 3D object identification, integration of multisensory (eyesight, acoustic sense and sense of touch) information, 3D motion prediction of moving objects, perception of texture (glaze), naturalness and unnaturalness of images and research for technological application of these mechanisms by our research team.
"Representation of 3D images by using a compact projector - Functions and possibilities of a non-polarized cross prism"

C.E.O, Hi-MEC Co., Ltd.
Mr. Kuninori, Okuhara

* Outline of lecture
Current situation concerning 3D image projectors and a proposal for diffusion.
Structures of a projector with one time-sequential LCOS illuminated by a random polarized RGB-LED by using a non-polarized dichroic cross prism, a projector with two time-sequential LCOS and a stereoscopic projector were presented. Explanations on structures of a compact projector with three LCOS illuminated by a single polarized and color separated light by using a non-polarized cross prism, and the optical projection system of a stereoscopic projector with six LCOS were also given.
"Integral 3D TV by using super high definition"

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

* Outline of lecture
Explanations on factors which determine resolution of integral 3D TV were given. In order to handle demands concerning the number of element images and the number of pixels which consist of element images, a system by using the 4 CCD dual green system was introduced.
"Trends of international ergonomic standardization on displays"

Senior Specialist, Group2 Array & Cell Core Technology Development Dept., Research & Development Centere, Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology Co., Ltd.
Mr. Yuzo, Hisatake

* Outline of lecture
"Eye-friendly, readable image quality which produces less fatigue" consists of the physical factors of images and of the psychological factors of viewers including environmental conditions. However, physical factors and psychological factors rarely have one-to-one relations and psychological factors are often dependent on each other. Ergonomics for displays refer to pursuit of required image quality by clarifying these relations. This presentation outlined ergonomics for displays and gave detailed explanations on the trends of its international standardization and on recent movements concerning standardizations required by ergonomics for 3D displays.
