3D is the next wave of visual experience. Hollywood is embracing it in new 3D-enabled theatres and, soon, it will move into home theatres. In addition, 3D is bringing a new level of immersive experience in PC gaming and online virtual world entertainment.

Luecke will provide an overview on industry and technology trends in this area and specific thoughts on how the city of Austin can lead and participate in the transition. Demonstrations of prototype 3D systems will be included.
