Room 515B

The invention of television radically shaped the 20th century. Today we view most of our visual entertainment on new and innovative displays. This panel examines future trends in display technology, ranging from stereoscopic and autostereoscopic techniques, holography, and 3DTV to projector-based concepts. Leading experts from science and industry discuss possibilities, developments, and limitations of tomorrow's displays; fundamental facts; and emerging trends and applications in entertainment, science, and education.
