  • Human perception factors for stereoscopic and volumetric imaging
  • Real-time depth mapping using LIDAR, time of flight and other methods
  • Light field camera systems
  • Assisted auto-edge segmentation
  • Real-time 2D-to-3D conversion algorithms
  • Advances in image segmentation
  • 3D tracking software
  • Visual error tolerances
  • Video codecs for stereoscopic and multi-view transmission
  • Metrology and test methods for 3D image quality analysis
  • Emerging technologies for computer generated synthetic stereo space
  • Advances in autostereoscopic displays
  • Horizontal image translation
  • Holographic and volumetric display technologies
  • Other technologies that enhance 3D imaging

SMPTE will post additional details about the conference on its Web site beginning in early January 2011 and will continue to provide updates leading up to the conference.
