Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH Presents:From Toys to Technology - Stereoscopic Display

From Toys to Technology | Stereoscopic Display

Interested in stereoscopic display technology engineered in Oregon?   If  “YES!” is your answer, come join us on Monday, May 18th @ 6:30 pm, at Portland Community College Cascade Campus to learn about Viewmaster, Planar, MacNaughton Inc., and Schrodinger stereoscopic display technology and heritage.

Event Details

The evening will begin at 6:30 pm with registration, light refreshments and networking.   At 7:00 pm, announcements will begin followed by a general overview presentation to acquaint everyone with stereoscopic terms and concepts.  This will be followed by a brief history of Oregon’s very own Viewmaster, proceeded by presentations from Planar, MacNaughton, and Schrodinger.  We'll conclude with demonstrations and hands-on of the various technologies.  Our guest speakers will be available to answer your questions.

Should be informative, educational and fun.  Hope to see you there!
