REVIVING STEREOSCOPY'S LONG FORGOTTEN ARCHIVES
Stereoscopy’s long history dates back to almost 200 years ago with the discovery of stereopsis and invention of the first stereoscope. For nearly a century, a first golden age of 3D imagery raged around the globe, documenting historical locations, events and people in authentic 3D. This vast heritage of millions of 3D pictures is now part of public and private collections worldwide but remain hidden and unavailable to the general public. In this session, you will learn how advances in stereoscopic image processing and 3D display technologies are reviving this rich and vibrant heritage and open up new possibilities for museums, collections and the general public.
