"Joint symposium by the 3D Consortium and the Research Group on Three-Dimensional Image Technology"
(Venue: NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories, Setagaya)
December 11, 2012

On December 11, the 3D Consortium organized a joint symposium for the general public with the Institute of Image Information and Television Engineers (ITE) Research Group on Three-Dimensional Image Technology (Chairman: Makoto Okui/NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories) at the lecture hall on the 1st floor of the NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories.
The theme of the symposium was the "Dissemination and development of 3D technologies".
The 3D boom that started two years ago seems to be settled and it is expected that 3D technologies will be utilized in various scenes in our lives in the future. Considering such a situation, we invited experts in various fields as lecturers to provide the audience an occasion to think about the possibilities of 3D technologies in the future. Concretely, Dolby 3D technology to aim for improvement of 3D experiences, projection mapping technology which is a new method for video expression in the 3D space, trends of international standardization of 3D images/multi-view video, and multi-view 3D image technology for realization of 3D TV in the future were covered. At the end of the symposium, two super high definition videos produced by the NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories were presented at the super high definition theater of the venue. In the space around the entrance of the venue, an exhibition and demonstrations of "Dolby 3D" and "projection mapping" related to lectures were held as well as those of 3D equipment and systems by Newsight Japan Ltd. and the NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories.
There were 58 members at the symposium for a total of 88 people attending.

"Dolby 3D - Provide supreme glassless 3D experiences on any device -"

Manager, Business Development, Dolby Japan
Mr. Satoshi Teshigawara
Introduction of the 3D image technology suite "Dolby 3D" which dramatically improves the entire 3D experiences on entertainment-oriented devices. Since the announcement of the technology at NAB with Phillips in April 2012, the technology has been receiving various international technical awards. The technology will be provided to manufacturers of equipment and broadcasting business operators so 3D will be more widely accepted by consumers.

"3D projection mapping - Integration of reality and video -"

Content-service Producer, 3D&AR, Digital Signage Projection Mapping
Mr. Satoshi Machida
Video popped out from a screen merges into the real world. It is the appeal of 3D projection mapping. To maximize its appeal, extremely analog factors as well as digital factors are required. This lecture will reveal the reality of projection mapping including its constraints.

"Overview of the next-generation 3D video coding technology and trends of its international standardization"

Research Engineer, High-Reality Visual Communication Group, Visual Media Project, NTT Media Intelligence Laboratories, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation
Mr. Shinya Shimizu
Different from the 3D video expressed by current stereoscopic images, naked eye 3D displays require numerous multi-parallax images. The international standardization of coding technology for efficient compression of such 3D video is proceeding under JCT-3V, a joint team between MPEG and ITU-T. This lecture will cover the latest trends of the standardization including challenges for the future and schedule.

"Research of multi-view 3D images at NHK"

Advanced Television Systems Research Division, Science & Technology Research Laboratories, Japan Broadcasting Corporation
Mr. Yuichi Iwadate
NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories has been advancing its own research about the integral 3D system for a next-generation ultra-realistic broadcast system. In this lecture, imaging devices and display devices based on Super Hi-Vision and a generation method of integral 3D images utilizing multi-view video technologies will be introduced.

"Exhibition with demonstrations"

> Dolby Japan K.K. "Dolby 3D" (naked eye display)
> Mr. Satoshi Machida (Cooperation: FORUM8 Co., Ltd.): "3D projection mapping"
> Newsight Japan Ltd.: "Naked eye 3D display - 24 inch"
> NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories: "Diorama 3D binocular telescope", "Integral 3D system"
