NAB Show Special Attractions Include 200-inch, Glasses-free 3D
WASHINGTON: The NAB
Show’s International Research Park (IRP) is set to feature an array of new and
emerging technologies at this year’s convention, including a 200-inch,
glasses-free 3D projection system.
IRP is presented by
NAB Labs, with the goal of promoting advanced work in the realms of academic,
government and commercial research. It will be open to all convention goers during
the NAB Show, April 16-19.
"A visit to the
International Research Park will give you a glimpse into the future of our
industry," said NAB Chief Technology Officer Kevin Gage, in a press
release. "Research organizations are making fundamental breakthroughs that
are propelling innovation and impacting prospects for the future."
The 3D projection
system’s reveal, presented by Japanese national research lab National Institute
for Information and Communication Technology, will reportedly be the first in the
U.S. The optimal, glasses-free “viewing zone” will be able to hold
approximately 30 people.
demonstrations will include hybrid radio and television broadcasting proposals,
multi-sensory media presentation, 4k video streaming, high-dynamic range and
multi-spectral video and more.
