3ality Digital will host their first full presence at IBC 2011 in Hall 9, booth number B40

Steve Schklair, noted stereoscopic 3D expert, founder, and CEO of 3ality Digital, a U.S. based S3D technology company, will speak on Monday, September 12, at 1:30pm in the RAI Big Screen Auditorium during the 2011 IBC event.  His presentation entitled, “The reports of S3D’s death have been greatly exaggerated,” is set to discuss the future of S3D as a genre that exceeds traditional use in big action films and that will take up permanent residence in homes around the globe.

Schklair’s key-note presentation will focus on integrating S3D automation as a way to significantly lower production costs and enhance production quality.  Highlights include Schklair conducting a live demonstration of new technologies that will forever advance and change the look of S3D production.

Schklair contributed to the 2011 book, ‘3D TV and 3D Cinema’, written by Bernard Mendiburu with Yves Pupulin. Schklair recently presented the key-note at 3D Masters in London, at Dimension-3 in Paris, and he provided the key-note at the University of China’s opening of their new 3D school. Schklair is intensely in tune with what is happening in the S3D world as it relates directly to advancements in S3D technology and its applications in a variety of platforms.
