3D@Home to Look at Human Response to 3D23 Jun, 2010 By: Chris Tribbey
The 3D@Home Consortium, a collection of companies dedicated to the advancement of 3D in the home, said June 22 it would form a new group dedicated to studying the impact of stereoscopic and auto-stereoscopic 3D images on the human physiology.
The group will be charged with compiling worldwide research on the effects of 3D, making it easier for 3D companies to share information and compare findings. The team will be chaired by Philip Corriveau, principal engineer and director of the User Experience Research Group at Intel Corp., and vice chaired by Paulette Pantoja, CEO of BluFocus.
“Many industry and academic groups, governing bodies and vision experts from around the world have been addressing stereoscopic effects for many years,” Corriveau said. “Creating a repository of information and then identifying, defining and driving key areas for additional research will ensure that the science impacts and advances 3D technology development.
“The key to successful adoption of 3D is the creation of a technology and delivery system that embraces and immerses the user in an experience that is realistic and exciting.”
