Organization of joint special lectures "All Japan will win the global 3D business Competition" by the 3D Consortium and the Ultra-Realistic Communication Forum
(Venue: Fun Theater in Head quarters Mirai-Kenkyusho of NAMCO BANDAI Games, Higashi-Shinagawa)
September 17, 2009
The recent popularity of 3D movies in North America has fueled the global 3D boom, and consortiums related to 3D including 3D@Home in North America, 3D4you in Europe, 3DFIC in Korea and C3D in China were established and commitment to lead the 3D industry started.
On the other hand, various commitments between the public sector and the private sector are being worked on in Japan including the public offering of projects related to safety of images, international standardization of 3D, 3D displays and 3D content production led by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
Under such a situation, an industry-government-academia "all-Japan" commitment is essential for Japan, which has strength in digital equipment including displays and digital cameras and contents production for games and animation, to win the competition under the international circumstances concerning 3D in recent years.
Considering the circumstances, 3D Consortium (3DC) decided to organize lectures for introduction of activities by gathering relevant groups focusing on standardization and contents production through cooperation with the Ultra-Realistic Communication Forum (URCF) to strengthen the all-Japan cooperative commitment.
In addition to lectures, exhibitions with demonstrations were organized and they ended successfully by having many visitors.
There were 153 members at the lectures for a total of 203 people attending.
