Space Dive Filming, 3D Olympics Coverage Among Highlights at IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging Next Month

BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA (PRWEB) January 23, 2013

Views into the filming of the 24-mile Red Bull Stratos space dive and the full-time 3D coverage of the Olympic Games in London are among highlights scheduled for IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging Science and Technology next month in Burlingame, California.

The annual event will convene international researchers in all aspects of electronic imaging, from image sensing to display and hardcopy, for more than 800 technical talks, an interactive poster-paper reception, and a hands-on demonstration session. Eighteen educational courses are also available, on fundamental and current topics such as digital imaging systems, image processing, analysis, displays. Dates are 3-7 February at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel.

This year’s gathering will mark the 25th anniversary for several conferences including Human Vision and Electronic Imaging, chaired by Bernice E. Rogowitz (Visual Perspectives Consulting), Thrasyvoulos Pappas (Northwestern University), and Huib de Ridder, (Technische Universiteit Delft), as well as the 25th anniversary of the short course on Spectroscopic Displays and Applications, co-taught by SD&A conference chair Andrew Woods (Curtin University) and John Merritt (The Merritt Group).

Jay Nemeth, owner and CEO of Flightline Films, will describe how optical imaging scientists worked with the Red Bull Stratos project for more than two years to develop the 35 camera systems and other equipment used to film Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking 24-mile space dive, including becoming the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall.

Nemeth and fellow team members Dennis Fisher and SPIE Past President Joe Houston will present 5:30-7 pm on Wednesday 6 February. The JLAIR (Joint Launch vehicle and Aircraft Imaging in Realtime) truck used to film the dive will be on display Tuesday and Wednesday outside the convention center. Flightline’s JLAIR systems are used for aerial cinematography, and to track and film space mission launches and military aircraft.

Broadcast engineering consultant Jim DeFilippis will detail challenges and lessons learned by three mobile production units and six single-camera field production units in the full-time 3D coverage of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Host broadcaster Olympic Broadcast Services provided a dedicated channel covering opening and closing ceremonies and multiple sports in more than 275 hours of 3D stereoscopic programming. DeFilippis’ keynote talk is part of the conference on Stereoscopic Displays and Applications (SD&A) and will presented 9:30-10:30 a.m. on Tuesday 5 February.

The SD&A conference will also feature a keynote talk by Vivian Walworth, President and Chief Technical Officer of SteroJet, recounting the work of many investigators who contributed to the development of stereoscopic display using light polarization, and a 3D cinema session on Monday 4 February, 5:40-7:30 p.m., showcasing the wide variety of 3D video content being produced around the world.

Other highlights of the event include:

  •     a panel discussion moderated by Bernd Girod (Stanford University) on how technology is transforming higher education around the globe
  •     a symposium-wide keynote track featuring 10 presentations by speakers from Google, Hewlett-Packard, and leading international optics, photonics, and imaging research institutes and universities
  •     Sabine Süsstrunk (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) plenary talk on information theory and signal processing
  •     Steven Seitz (University of Washington) plenary talk on transforming the world's massive, unorganized photo collection into reconstructions and visualizations of the world's sites, cities, and people (hear more in a brief SPIE Newsroom video interview)
  •     highlighted talks from articles recently published in the Journal of Electronic Imaging(Editor-in-Chief Gaurav Sharma, University of Rochester).

Sharma is symposium chair for 2013, Sergio Goma (Qualcomm) is symposium co-chair, and Choon-Woo Kim (Inha University) is course chair.

Conference proceedings papers will be published individually in the SPIE Digital Library as soon as approved after the meeting, and also in collected print and digital volumes.

About SPIE

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The Society serves nearly 225,000 constituents from approximately 150 countries, offering conferences, continuing education, books, journals, and a digital library in support of interdisciplinary information exchange, professional growth, and patent precedent. SPIE provided $3.2 million in support of education and outreach programs in 2012.
