"About Fine Pix REAL 3D - A 3D imaging system"

FUJIFILM Corporation
Mr. Mikio Watanabe
* Contents of lectures
"Fine Pix REAL 3D system" was released in August 2009 under a concept, "What you see is what is recorded", and acquired a good reputation. By offering functions to record (camera), to see (viewer) and to record (print service) 3D images as a system, it aims to allow users to easily enjoy 3D images with realism without troublesome operations or special processing. This lecture introduced the product, explained about the outline of the system, backgrounds of its development and outline of technologies. It also covered what the system aims to cover in the field of 3D in the future.
