The SD&A is the Stereoscopic Displays and Applications group, which not only reproduces several excellent resources (available here: Stereoscopic Displays and Applications Virtual Library), but also has a conference – the next will be in San Francisco on Monday-Wednesday 23-25 January 2012 – Conference and Exhibition
The most recent book that the SD&A is promoting now in the Virtual Library is “The Theory of Stereoscopic Transmission and its application to the motion picture” by Raymond and Nigel Spottiswoode – originally published in 1953.
“The Theory of Stereoscopic Transmission” provides a theoretical analysis of the three-dimensional geometry of capture and presentation of stereoscopic images as typified by 3D movies. Titles of chapters in the book include: Stereoscopic Depth Range, The Stereoscopic Window, Stereoscopic Calculators, Cameras with Variable Separation and Convergence, Projection, The Human Factor in Stereoscopic Transmission, and much more. An errata list is provided at the end of the book. Also included is an 8 page anaglyph 3D insert “Stereoscopic Diagrams” by Brian Borthwick and Jack Coote which illustrates some of the concepts in the book in 3D.
