Commemorative lectures
Head of Administration Mr. Koichi Imai delivering an address
After the General Meeting, lectures associated with the General Meeting were organized at the same venue under the themes, "More and yet more 3D! - 3D on Your Business - Expansion and development of business areas", which are 3D Consortium's vision for this fiscal year.
This year, 117 persons including the general public attended these lectures associated with the General Meeting.

"New possibilities of 4K and 3D"

Executive Director, Fujiwara-Rothchild, Ltd.
Mr. Ikuo Matsumoto
> Outline of lecture
We conducted a questionnaire for 3D operators in 2012. The result marked a contrast between Japanese operators who showed the sense of stagnation and foreign operators who kept their spirits high. The lecture will provide the analysis of the root cause of this contrast and of favorable directions for 3D in the future. Since the advancement of 4K and combination with 3D will be an important factor in the future, trend analysis related to 4K is included. * Exhibition with demonstrations
"New 3D broadcast system which is compatible with traditional 2D receivers 'Advanced Stereo 3D'"

Executive Engineer, 3D & High Definition Division, Broadcast Engineering Department NHK Media Technology, Inc.
Mr. Yasuaki Nishida
> Outline of lecture
Currently, 2D receivers can only present 3D broadcasts in half resolution with a layout where two screens are horizontally laid out. This system allows traditional TVs to present full high definition broadcasts and 3D TVs to present full high definition 3D. In addition, the proposed new 3D broadcast system enables broadcasts by using a traditional broadcast band. By using this system, resolution as well as image quality will be improved compared to the current side-by-side 3D broadcasts.
"Current situation and future of 3D in medical education and clinical sites"

Member of the Clinical Anatomy Labo (CAL), Medical Education Center, School of Medicine, Keio University / President & Representative Director, META Corporation Japan Ltd.
Mr. Eiji Takaoki
>Lecture Outline
Most of TVs for home use now support 3D broadcasts, and 4K3D monitors show a sign of becoming popular. The number of mobile terminals including iPhones and iPads has rapidly increased. This lecture will introduce the current situation of medical education and clinical sites which utilize this environment. It also presents prospects of 3D while showing 3D contents created by applications for PCs and Actioforma KOS, which is an application for iOS.
* 3D video presentation and exhibition with demonstrations
"3D technologies and 3D business models - A case study of 3D digital signage"

CEO & President, Newsight Japan Ltd.
Mr. Kiyoto Kanda
>Lecture Outline
There are a variety of 3D technologies, and many interesting and useful technologies exist in the world now. However, 3D businesses still have a long way to become a big boom. We reached the fact that the 3D business models have been weak by pursuing the root cause. This lecture will examine the correlation between 3D technologies and 3D business models by using 3D digital signage as a case study to consider future possibilities of 3D businesses.
* Exhibition with demonstrations.
"Commitment to introduce San'in Kaigan Geopark with 3D video"

Expert staff of San'in Kaigan Nature Museum, Tottori Prefectural Museum
Mr. Yoshinori Yamada
>Lecture Outline
3D video which introduces the appeal of San'in Kaigan Geopark, "Story of the earth and sea" was completed in December 2012. The video has been presented regularly in San'in Kaigan Nature Museum (Tottori Prefecture) . This lecture introduced the current situation related to the video including the process which led to production, purpose and effects after starting presentation regularly.

[S3D contents groups on Actioforma KOS (S3D educational materials mainly used for science and biology classes at elementary, junior high and high schools)]
* Actioforma KOS is an application for iPad, iPad mini, iPhone and iPod Touch which is a content platform with a viewer with S3D output to 3DTVs. S3D movies and interactive S3D contents focusing on medical contents and biology related contents can be downloaded from the contents server (Actioforma Store). Enhancement of presentation functions and contents production functions is planned in the future. Teachers can use an electronic blackboard with an S3D function to conduct classes with freely incorporated S3D educational materials. They also enable students to create contents and conduct S3D presentations by distributing iPod Touches to them.
