I3DS and 3D@Home Sponsor 3D Conference at CES 2012

These sessions offer the best opportunity to learn about 3D and interact with some of the best innovators in the industry.

The International 3D Society and 3D @ Home Consortium are presenting a series of 3D sessions at CES 2013 called "3D's 20/20 Vision". For those interested in 3D, these sessions offer the best opportunity to learn about 3D and interact with some of the best innovators in the industry. 3D's 20/20 Vision will take place January 8th, 2013, 1-5pm in LVCC N262.

With more than 50 major 3D movies arriving at a record setting pace in 2013, and millions of 3DTV's now in homes around the world, the 3D ecosystem is growing rapidly. From China to Brazil to Russia to Hollywood … content creators are strategizing about how to generate revenues from this ever-growing consumer base. As we move closer to the year 2020, what year will the critical mass of TV households ignite content creation? What year will autostereo make its way from the CES show floor to consumer households? Where will we see 3D content and technology in 2013? Where do 4K, 8K, OLED, Ultra HiDef and High Frame Rate come into the picture? Is there something to be learned from skeptics? The International 3D Society and 3D@Home Consortium bring the leaders in 3D image capture, conversion, television, gaming, mobile, and digital technology to this year's CES to showcase the content and the opportunities consumers will be talking about in 2013.
