The Society for Information Display (SID), the leading global organization dedicated to the advancement of electronic-display technology, and DisplaySearch, the worldwide leader in display market research, today announced that Sony Electronics' President and Chief Operating Officer Stan Glasgow will deliver the keynote address during the SID DisplaySearch Business Conference, which will be held during Display Week 2010 (May 23-28) in Seattle. Glasgow will describe Sony's vision of the future, with 3D emerging as the next great platform for home entertainment. Drawing upon Sony's work on implementing 3D capabilities in its professional cameras, digital cinema 4K projection systems and other equipment, as well as consumer products including TVs, Blu-ray disc players, and gaming consoles, Glasgow will provide a comprehensive view of the challenges and opportunities in the 3D platform.
Because in 3D, "seeing is believing,” Sony will be creating a 3D cinema experience within the SID DisplaySearch Business Conference using their 3D equipment. Specifically, they will use a Sony SRXR320 3D Projector and a Silver Screen to show the 3D images and distribute 3D glasses for attendees. Attendees will be treated to a mixture of content from Sony and other content providers, including movies, live sporting events, gaming and other entertainment.
The release of numerous 3D movies has created a tremendous amount of interest in 3D beyond the cinema. But in moving from the cinema to the home, there are additional challenges. In his presentation, Glasgow will describe Sony's concept of the "lens-to-living room" ecosystem for 3D, encompassing content creation, processing, delivery and viewing in the home.
"Sony is a pioneer in 3D, in regards to both TV and content, and Glasgow's presentation will be beneficial to all those in the 3D display supply chain,” noted Paul Semenza, DisplaySearch Senior Vice President.
