The AOA invited the International 3D Society to demonstrate how 3D is changing entertainment and education.

The clip utilized footage of iconic Chicago landmarks including the city skyline.
Mr. Stephen Blumenthal, formerly co-founder and inventor of the 3DFusion technology, has been a pioneer in auto stereoscopic screens and 3D conversions for the last 30 years. He recently formed DaVinci 3D, based in Ithaca, NY, to advance 3DTV for the B2B and consumer markets. DaVinci has developed accelerated auto conversion processes for glasses free Auto Stereoscopic Displays (ASD) and for 3D with glasses.
In Chicago DaVinci 3D introduced its new semi automatic stereoscopic conversion process to the Movie theater size screen for the first time. Mr. Chabin praised both the extraordinary effort and the results.
“DaVinci came through under extremely tight deadlines and got a great ovation from 2500 eye doctors. The clip was a hit,” Chabin praised.
“It was the best response we could have hoped for,” continued Blumenthal. “We showed our toughest critics, a With Glasses audience of eye doctors, what our 'Natural 3D' ASD image for the consumer 3DTV market will look like, and they loved it.” ( Email Contact)
This bodes well for the DaVinci 3D stereoscopic conversion market strategy. This successful demonstration of their Movie screen semi automatic, low cost 2D to 3D conversion methodology is now available for their global Content customers, for both large and small screen distribution.
