    3DTV-CON "Vision Beyond Depth", Aberdeen, 7-8 Oct., advance registration by Sept. 14th

    The 3DTV-CON series aims to bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry with diverse experience and activity in distinct yet complementary areas to discuss the development of next generation 3D broadcast technologies, 3D imaging and measurement, and associated applications. Because of its location in Aberdeen, this is an ideal opportunity to widen the traditional remit of 3DTV-CON into 3D imaging, vision and measurement in the offshore energy community and to showcase the significant activity being undertaken in this sector.
