Hosts: Eric Kurland, 3-D SPACE (United States); John Stern, retired (United States); and Andrew Woods, Curtin University (Australia)
05:30 – 07:30
YouTube SD&A 2021 Playlist

This perennially popular session of the annual Stereoscopic Displays and Applications Conference showcases the wide variety of 3D films produced and exhibited around the world. It is open to the public and all attendees of the Electronic Imaging symposium, SD&A’s parent. Since this year’s conference will be 100% online, the 3D Theater Session will stream in full 3D for home viewing. We will break from the tradition of screening only recent 3D films, and instead screen a retrospective of our Best-of-Show award winners from the past decade. This family-friendly event is suitable for viewing either on a compatible 3D TV or with standard red-cyan anaglyph 3D glasses (provide your own). The 3D Theater Session will live-stream at three appropriate times in order to accommodate conference attendees in the Americas, Europe, and Asia starting Saturday January 16, but will not otherwise be available on-demand. Registration is available for this free event via Eventbrite.

Conference Introduction

10:15SD&A-049
Looking back at a wonderful decade shooting live-action 3D (Invited), Demetri Portelli, I.A.T.S.E. International Cinematographer's Guild (Canada)

Invited speaker Demetri Portelli is known for his live action stereography. He has more than 25 years of technical camera experience as a member of the IATSE, the International Cinematographer’s Guild. He is also a camera operator and a technician. He was trained in fine arts, worked extensively in the theatre growing up, taught himself cameras with Super8mm, 16mm, and 35mm shorts and music videos before his professional career started. In his role as stereographer and stereo supervisor, Portelli is hands-on during shooting and post-production. He is extremely precise executing stereo on-the-fly, with IO adjustments to ‘bake-in’ the best possible 3D depth, volumetric shape, and audience proximity. Working alongside the director and cinematographer, his goal is always to design a truly engaging 3D experience from depth planning to shot conception, and through post-production with VFX stereo comps, final geometry checks, and creative convergence placement during the grade.

10:45SD&A-050
When 3D headache will be over: A decade of movie quality measurements (Invited), Dmitriy Vatolin, Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russian Federation)

Invited speaker Dmitriy Vatolin received his PhD from Moscow State University (2000) and is currently head of the Video Group at the CS MSU Graphics & Media Lab. His research interests include compression methods, video processing, and 3D-video techniques (depth from motion, focus and other cues, video matting, background restoration, and high-quality stereo generation), as well as 3D-video quality assessment (metrics for 2D-to-3D-conversion artifacts, temporal asynchrony, swapped views, and more). He is a chief organizer of the VQMT3D project for 3D-video quality measurement.

KEYNOTE: Underwater 3D system for ultra-high resolution imaging, Pawel Achtel, Achtel Pty Limited (Australia)

Cinematographer and inventor, keynote speaker Pawel Achtel, ACS, will explain some of the challenges we face in 3D underwater cinematography and how his breakthrough innovation made it to the set of one of the most anticipated Hollywood blockbuster movies. Underwater flat ports and dome ports, a compromise we’ve all come to expect and live with since the advent of underwater photography, substantially limit underwater image quality as camera resolutions increased. Additional constraints on the size of the underwater optics used in Stereoscopic 3D setups further impacted the quality of images down to approximately standard definition levels. Submersible lenses are now the industry’s gold standard and combined with Achtel’s invention, a submersible beam-splitter, allow images so much in advance of other solutions that the results are as good as or even better as those achieved on land. Achtel uses his scientific approach where almost every aspect of image quality is meticulously measured, compared, and ultimately improved. This leads to measurable outcomes that can be objectively quantified. Achtel also holds a Master’s degree in engineering, which allowed him to design one of the most advanced underwater 3D system ever built. His company's patented 3D beam-splitter was recently used extensively on James Cameron’s latest Avatar sequels, in New Zealand, prompting the legendary Hollywood director to write that the results were the best underwater 3D images he’d ever seen, by far. Indeed, his underwater 3D system is capable of resolving 8K corner-to-corner measured resolution on screen and without any distortions, aberrations, or image plane curvature. It is the world’s first. Achtel will share some of his insights on what to expect from underwater images when Avatar 2 hits the screens in 2022.
