Scientists to reveal 3D display systems breakthrough

4th June 2008

<p>Scientists in Japan have unveiled the latest in display systems technology which could revolutionise the events and conferencing industry. </p><p>A team of researchers from Hitachi Ltd, working in collaboration with professor Takeshi Naemura of the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, the University of Tokyo are set to unveil their new 3D imaging system at a conference in the Japanese capital later this summer. </p><p>The new technology uses 64 cameras to take pictures, which are then captured and displayed in a 3D image just 0.5 seconds later. </p><p>According to the team, the images produced look completely three-dimensional to the naked eye, with the process almost in "real-time", meaning the new systems may have a significant impact upon the potential of display systems in corporate conferences. </p><p>The next step for the research team is to move away from still images and onto moving images, with the technology already portable and work set to go ahead at a Japanese zoo before the system is used to project images of humans in 3D. </p><p>This latest advance comes as growing numbers of businesses are exploring the possibilities of remote imaging so as to cut back on travel and overheads as environmental and economic pressures mount. <img alt="ADNFCR-1753-ID-18623937-ADNFCR" src="" /></p>
