International 3D Stereo Film & Technology Festival - Belgium 1st till 3rd December 2009

A true revolution is happening near you ... 3D stereo imaging!

You are ALL concerned: movie and TV industry, entertainment parks, media, communication agencies, artists, scientists and engineers, R&D labs, manufacturers, deciders, movie buffs, high-tech enthusiasts, and, obviously, the press.

To help you appreciate and anticipate as best as possible this revolution and take advantage of all opportunities of this wave, which is as much high-tech than it is artistic, the e-mage technology cluster of Liège, in collaboration with the University of Liège, has decided to organize a yearly event, called 3D Stereo MEDIA, totally dedicated to ALL facets of 3D stereo imaging, and thus unique in Europe.

Fostering the get-together and interaction of all players in 3D stereo imaging is natural since most of the biological, psychological, and technical principles, as well as much hardware and software, of 3D stereo, apply to many applications: not only cinema - which concerns us all - but also medical imaging, architecture, urbanism, cartography, remote sensing, vehicle simulators, aerospace, design, etc.

The 1st edition of 3D Stereo MEDIA will happen in Liège, Belgium, on 1-3 December 2009, featuring a 3D stereo film festival, a large array of conferences, an exhibition, and specialized training. Hundreds of experts and professionals, coming from all over the world, will be present.

Ben Stassen, the well knowned director and producer of “Fly Me to the Moon”, the first 3D Stereo animation film in the world, will be the President of 3D Stereo MEDIA 2009.
