The Society’s 3D Technology Awards honor technological achievement in the stereoscopic medium, including cinema, television, cellular and portable devices, special venue, themed attractions, video games, computers and other media.
“For the second annual awards the International 3D Society will honor the contributions of engineers, scientists, and inventors whose products and technology have advanced the art of stereoscopic displays,” explained Lenny Lipton, co-chair of the 3D awards committee. “We want to single out the work that has been done in the last few years.”
International 3D Society chair and head of production planning, DreamWorks Animation Jim Mainard added, “Technology development continues to be an essential component in the evolution of 3D content creation, and the Society encourages those developments by recognizing those who are making a difference.”
