The 3D theater will exhibit two DLA-QX1 projectors featuring Mirimax's "Spy Kids 3D" and NCSA scientific visualizations of "Flight to the Galactic Center," "Jet Instabilities in a Stratified Fluid Flow," and "The Visualization of F3 Tornado," on a 15-foot wide screen as part of SIGGRAPH'S Emerging Technologies Theater.
The DLA-QX1 features JVC's Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier (D-ILA) technology that delivers high-resolution images in a theater projection system. The projector's 3.2 million pixels result in a film-like picture depth and true-to-life presence of film, according to JVC.
A white paper authored by Rod Sterling titled "High-Performance Stereoscopic Methods for 3D Viewing Using D-ILA Projectors" will demonstrate improved methods of visualization. The presentation will be held on Wednesday, August 3, at the Emerging Technologies Panel.
The Emerging Technologies exhibit will allow visitors a chance to interact with digital experiences that move beyond digital tradition and display work from many sub-disciplines of interactive techniques, with a special emphasis on projects that explore science, high-resolution digital-cinema technologies, and interactive art-science narrative.
