Archimedes’ Tub

Lenny Lipton, CTO, REAL D

As a boy I was fascinated by the story I read about Archimedes and his epiphany in the tub.  I’ve fulfilled my dream of becoming an inventor and have had many an epiphany including how to eliminate flicker from time sequential 3-D displays, ideas for improving electro-optics such as the first CrystalEyes shutters, and the basis for the modern theatrical 3-D projection system. I also realized that perfecting the display system wasn’t enough and that the content had to be properly prepared and set about figuring that out over several years of experimentation.  My book, Foundations of the Stereoscopic Cinema, enunciates what is now the standard theory of stereoscopic composition as well as describing the overarching design principal of such displays -- the principal of binocular symmetries. The talk will cover people and events that influenced me including my more than 25 year participation in the SD&A conference and its predecessors.

Lenny Lipton was born in New York City and graduated from Cornell University, where he majored in physics.  He has authored three books for Simon & Schuster, including Independent Filmmaking, which was the early standard text in many film schools and remained in print for 20 years.  He founded StereoGraphics Corporation in 1980 which was responsible for the well known CrystalEyes and ZScreen products.  Lenny is Chief Technology Officer of Real D, which acquired StereoGraphics in 2005.  At REAL D Lenny helped perfect the Real D projection system, which has become the leading 3D cinema technology.

Standards to Enable Ubiquitous 3D Display

To become ubiquitous 3D display technologies will require flexible delivery standards, particularly if they are to support cinema, professional, home and mobile use. We already know that the same stereo pair cannot bring high 3D quality to all these platforms, how can we solve this? Leading industry and academic experts will present their thoughts and answer your questions on these issues.
