The SMPTE International Conference on Stereoscopic 3D for Media and Entertainment will offer fresh, new scientific perspectives about the next generation of 3D acquisition, conversion, transmission and display technologies. Experts will address issues ranging from how to acquire 3D images without expensive mirror rigs, why some 2D-to-3D conversions look great and others do not, and if broadcasters will have to run a cable for each eye to transmit 3D images effectively to consumers.

SMPTE is working on a developing a stereoscopic 3D Home Master standard that will help drive revenue opportunities for content creators and distributors. The standard, scheduled to be finalized later this year, will be a key element in enabling 3D feature films and other programming to be played on home television and computer displays – regardless of the delivery channels.
